How Much Does It Take to Monetize YouTube?
The author is posting a video called Vlog, which captures everyday life.
It started in Jan 2021 and was monetized in Feb 2021.
However, the numbers are growing steadily, and we can see that a certain amount of income will come in.
However, depending on the genre, it will probably be popular and difficult.
If you do a lot of research just before, you’ll get results earlier than I do.
The effort it took to monetize my YouTube
Here’s what we did to monetize:
Be sure to reply to comments
Youtuber update it almost every day.
The reason is that the genre called Vlog was popular.
Even in the face of intense competition, we decided that regular posting was necessary to ensure stable viewing.
In addition, Vlog is an extreme story, anything can be a source.
You don’t have to worry about running out of material.
And while continuing to post to some extent, I continued to observe the numbers and worked on creating titles and thumbnails that were easy to get interested in.
In addition, the video time is set as short as 3 to 5 minutes so that there is no burden as long as you can post every day.
As the number of registrants increases, it will increase rapidly.
The number of my YouTube channels increased at a pace of about 30 to 40 people a month in the first half.
After that, the number of people increased steadily to 80 to 90 per month, and by the beginning of June, it had increased to 600 and 700.
The standard for monetization of 1,000 people was at the stage of 2/22, but now the number of registrants has already increased to nearly 1,500.
Most of the people who started at the same time stopped at the stage of about 300 registrants.
It took me more than half a year to reach 300 people, and there was a period when I couldn’t feel the trouble of keeping updating every day.
However, I realize that it will not appear in the numbers unless it continues to exceed a certain number.
Moreover, it will grow more than expected, so if you do not continue, you will not get results.
The first 10 people had a lot of trouble, but now 10 people a day are soon.
The experience value is totally different.
How much is the actual profit?
I think this is the point to worry about how much profit a person who succeeds in monetizing for the first time can earn.
Previously, in a past article, the author summarized it as about 0.05 yen to 1 yen per playback.
However, when I calculated my own unit price, I got a value of about 0.3 yen per playback.
I monetized from the middle of the month, so I haven’t made a whole month yet.
However, the current situation is that one day’s profit is generated.
By continuing, we can aim for further additions
When I averaged the period from Feb 15th to Feb 30th, the result was “495 yen” a day.
In other words, if there are 31 days a month, it will be an additional income of 15,345 yen.
Whether this amount is seen as high or low may depend on the person’s values.
However, if I continue as it is, I feel that there is a strong possibility that it will be added further.
If you simply continue to grow at the same pace, it will be 30,690 yen a month one year later and 46,035 yen a month two years later.
Of course, it may or may not grow.
However, as the number increases, the degree of exposure will increase more than ever, so if you continue to create it, it is likely to increase further.
At the same time, it also means that you can make big advertisements for free, so if you can do your own goods and promotion, the possibility of increasing profits will increase further.
Some may say that it takes too long.
However, personally, I feel that if you seek comfort and get immediate results, you will end up with short-term profits.
In the case of YouTube, the numbers will continue to appear, so it will be strong to multiply with something.
Precautions when starting YouTube as a side business
The author started with no track record, was completely amateur, and had no editing experience, and finally reached monetization in a year.
Depending on the person, even under the same conditions, there may be people who are faster or slower than me.
However, if I can’t continue anyway, I feel that it is quite difficult to earn as a side job.
It takes more time and effort than you can imagine, and it takes a lot of time and effort.
Therefore, it is not suitable for those who want to get results easily and quickly.
If you expect immediate money, you should work on Sedori and Web writers.
However, YouTube continues to promote what has been published in the past 24 hours a day.
If anything, it’s better to think in terms of multiplication and work on something that can be continued for a long time, even if it’s a hobby.
