How To Start YouTube Automation And Make Money is a term that has been buzzing around for months. Most creators have heard of it. Some hail it as a time-saving, income-generating whiz strategy or a Cash Cow.
But what does it actually mean?
In simple terms, I’ll do my best to explain how much and how Youtube pays YouTubers and how much a YouTuber will make roughly in a month(this is only from Ads).
So What is Youtube automation exactly?
It’s basically outsourcing parts of your video creation process and having adverts on your site or a site, (like the one you’re reading this article from), the only difference is that the adverts are videos and not just text, pictures, or gifs. There are mainly three things you need to outsource in order to run a successful Cashcow: A Voice artist, a Video editor, and a Scriptwriter. You can outsource all the mentioned services from freelance websites like Fiverr and Upwork. But To make the process easier and free you can use Speeechelo for voice-over, Creaite.com and go to YouTube to learn the basics of VSDC Free video editor so you can easily edit your videos yourself.
An example of a monetized CashCow YouTube channel is this LowKey8 TV . Check it out on YouTube and see.
How to Monetize Your YouTube Cashcow channel
In order for YouTube to appprove a creator to be part of the YPP(YouTube Partner Program) or display ads on your channel to make money, you must meet the minimum threshold of 1000 subscribers and 4000 hours of watch time on your youtube channel videos. If you want to bypass this whole process, you can buy an already monetized YouTube channel for your YouTube Automation business from marketplace websites like Fameswap or Flippa.
Youtube pays you only when your videos have been approved and monetized.
Then, two measurements or parameters are used to determine your pay by YouTube they are;
- The number of advert views, (i.e. hits or views your monetized video gets)
The pay for the number of advert views is what we call CPM. Now to make it trackable and easier, advertising companies such as Google, and YouTube pay you for every 1000 views i.e. A particular amount is given to you for every 1000 views.
Note: The amount depends on the niche the YouTuber or YouTube channel is in.
For example, a gaming YouTuber might receive $4 for every 1000 views, while a real estate YouTuber might receive as high as $15 per 1000 views.
2. The number of Advert clicks;
This second measure for payment is what we call CPC. Every time a viewer clicks on the link to the advertiser’s site, YouTube pays you an amount of money.
This also includes the number of viewers that watch the video past the ‘5 seconds skip to video’ time. Note that it’s quite different from the CPM we talked about above. They will pay for this also.
Note: This amount paid depends on the viewer’s region. And also depends on the niche you are into!
Eg YouTube would pay a tech YouTuber up to $1.2 for American viewers’ clicks, but for Canadian and African viewers’ clicks, it would be about $0.90 and $0.09 respectively.
And like I said, it depends on your niche/area and type of advert. An advert for a game would pay less than an advert for cars or online trading.
I’m a YouTuber, that’s why I can give some degree of exact figures.
A YouTuber with a monetized video of 1 million views, let’s break it down with the two parameters explained above; to be
Advert or Monetized video views:
Assuming 1 million views, for every 1000 views you get $3, ie
1000 views => $3
10,000 views => $30
100,000 views => $300
1,000,000 views => $3,000
Let’s assume for an average click we get $0.45 and from 1 million views we are using as a case study, let’s assume 9,000 viewers actually clicked or watched the advertiser video;
it’s 9,000 x 0.45 = $4,050
So that is, $3,000+$4,050 = $7,050
i.e CPM + CPC = TOTAL AMOUNT
Once YouTube takes its share (which is about 45% of the total amount) and taxes, the YouTuber with 1 million views will have pretty much what is left of the total $7,050.
