  1. [..YouTube..] True, there use to be a way with AudioSwap to swap out your audio, download it, re-mix it using Audacity and re-upload…
    now theres a easier way: You can get most of the AudioSwap Royalty free Youtube Audio at:
    trackonerecordings(dot)com/aalborg-soundtracks/

    Using iMovie or MovieMaker or even PhotoStory together with these soundtracks makes for nicer videos without having to worry about Royalties.

    PS: Thanks Gideon!
    Make good use of it.

  2. [..YouTube..] Thanks for the warning, Heatheronhertravels. I have public domain music that YouTube says is copyright and now am thinking maybe I need to dispute that further now.

  3. [..YouTube..] No probs! Hope you get a TON of views to help you monetize your videos!

  4. [..YouTube..] Yup – this raises a very important point. Recently YouTube (and Google) has become A LOT more serious about pirating content and copyright etc. So yes, it’s very important that the videos you monetize are 100% your own content.

  5. [..YouTube..] You mean you hate the idea of using a thumbnail? Or you hate the idea of not being able to use a thumbnail just yet and cant wait for YouTube to turn it on?

  6. [..YouTube..] :) Thanks! It seems to work well!

  7. [..YouTube..] Oh oops! Yeah I forgot to mention that lol! Sorry Bulgaria (and other countries who cant get it yet). But it’s only a matter of time until you get it too!

  8. [..YouTube..] Are you referring to the banner on the channel page for partners? At the moment, I dont think that is available to everyone just yet… but I hope they bring that in too soon!

  9. [..YouTube..] Ah very good point! Yes there are certainly quite a few competitors out there. And YouTube has to make sure they create enough incentive for people to stay with them!

  10. [..YouTube..] Hmmm… not sure about that one. You may need to contatc YouTube… uhm… wait… they don’t reply lol! Have you tried setting up another adsense account? You may need to jump through a few hoops to be able to do that though… not sure.

  11. [..YouTube..] That is what I was trying to figure out as well – have not been able to get an answer just yet. But will be researching that some more, cos that would be great obviously!

  12. [..YouTube..] Hmmm… yeah sorry, I should have mentioned that. It’s not available for all countries just yet. Only to users in Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Czech Republic, Colombia, France, French Guiana, Germany, Guadeloupe, India, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Martinique, Mayotte, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Philippines, Poland, Reunion, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom, and the United States

  13. [..YouTube..] Not sure about this one… one option is to just wait till you are old enough? hehehe… otherwise maybe create a new account with new settings?

  14. [..YouTube..] Yeah it’s super quick right! So good!

  15. [..YouTube..] Yeapers – awareness is everything!

  16. [..YouTube..] Yeah it’s important to always keep proof of any royalty free music or content that you use in your videos, so that you can dispute it in case YouTube does not agree!

  17. [..YouTube..] Yeah, there certainly has been a BIG move on YouTube’s part to clear up on junk, and also to get rid of fake views, which would obviously effect advertisers.

  18. [..YouTube..] Nice – thanks for the tips about audio!

  19. [..YouTube..] Create a completely new Google account (different email) with the correct information and create the AdSense account on this Google account. Your YouTube channel and your AdSense accounts can be on different Google accounts.

  20. [..YouTube..] Pirate is switched on! Good stuff!

  21. [..YouTube..] one slightly concerning thing I saw was the notice next to the videos while the monetization option is being approved:

    “Important note: If your video is not approved for revenue sharing, it may be removed from YouTube.”

    I presume this will eliminate spammy videos (which would be ineffective for adsense monetization anyway).

  22. [..YouTube..] one slightly concerning thing I saw was the notice next to the videos while the monetization option is being approved:

    “Important note: If your video is not approved for revenue sharing, it may be removed from YouTube.”

    I presume this will eliminate spammy videos (which would be ineffective for adsense monetization anyway).

  23. [..YouTube..] no problem,
    i explained a little bit quick, but im sure people will be able to figure it out.
    I’m sure you’ll make a nice video soon showing exactly how
    :-)
    Enjoy the good weather down under! (It’s freezing spring here in the UK)

  24. [..YouTube..] ok thanks for thre answer

  25. [..YouTube..] I am so new to all this stuff. Thank You for the information.

  26. [..YouTube..] YouTube Partner Program is not available to my country.How can I be a one?I’m in Sri Lanka and you told that “everyone” now can be a youtube partner???

  27. [..YouTube..] YouTube Partner Program is not available to my country.How can I be a one?I’m in Sri Lanka and you told that “everyone” now can be a youtube partner???

  28. [..YouTube..] I think it is great that partnership has been extended to all content creators. If a person has taken the time to create content to share with others, I see no problem giving them an opportunity to earn revenue. It is a great incentive for them to continue to make more content. As you know, creating content can become addictive and can result in better content as the content creators finds their groove. I don’t see how it will hurt anyone.

    Thanks for the video. Great information.

  29. [..YouTube..] sorry for my bad english..:)…..i hate the ideea that everybody will have a thumbnail…is wrong …..all videos will look great but when you clik it wou will discover bad videos…i hope you understand:)

  30. [..YouTube..] Maybe this is what many people needed to get more involved with their videos. In fact, this new is pretty excited to me. Thanks Gildeon for explaining the subject so easily.

  31. [..YouTube..] The big winners from this change will be the mammoth Google Inc.. Every time you click on an ad, Google charges advertisers on a bided Pay Per Click basis. A small portion of that take (they won’t disclose how little) Google gives to it’s Adsense partners. Being an Adsense Partner is like getting the odd crumbs from the Google banquet table. Of course crumbs are better than nothing :D

  32. [..YouTube..] Sorry for the stupid question, but I already have monetization option for my account, how to move to partner program?

  33. [..YouTube..] Thanks Gideon for keeping me informed:)

  34. [..YouTube..] Thanks Gideon
    I’ll be looking at my highest watched vids to see what they can earn!
    Cheers
    Ant

  35. [..YouTube..] Great video, great information.

  36. [..YouTube..] Without “unique” thumbnails, or a “larger” number of thumbnail choices, Partner Is a bust :(
    Vimeo gives you a choice of about 10 pics, but fails in other aspects, Vimeo needs reconstructive surgery..j/s

  37. [..YouTube..] Thanks Gideon.
    Great that people now have the option to monetize if they want. Me personally I prefer to keep my videos ad free so won;t be taking youtube up on their offer. :)

  38. [..YouTube..] i think youtube did a good job by my opinion but well see down the line if this is good or bad

  39. [..YouTube..] Who are the losers? Viewers, who now will have to put up with ads on lots more videos.

    This is a very disappointing development in my opinion. YouTube was a great original idea, but like every great idea that becomes focused on revenue and loses sight of its origins (eBay, anyone?), they’re just crapping all over themselves now.

  40. [..YouTube..] I think it’s great it gives us chance to maybe become a success financially by taking our talents toYouTube Beach. =D …but seriously I think it’s a win win. Great informative videos by the way I subbed a few weeks ago.

  41. [..YouTube..] Great video. I really dont like how yt did this, ya I think it’s great that every body can be a partner but it kinda ruins the whole experience! Those original youtubers did all that work for nothing. But if yt keeps it this way i think they should make it so we have custom branding! Is app reviews considered copy right material?!?

  42. [..YouTube..] DO YOU THINK WE WILL GET PAID FOR WATCHING YOUTUBE VIDEOS FOR CERTAIN HOURS PER DAY ? INSTAED OF WATCHING TV, GET PAID FOR VIDEO VIEWING AND RATEING VIDEOS AND SENDING FEEDBACK TO YOUTUBE

  43. [..YouTube..] all it is is a rebranding and slight modification to the monetization program…

    it’s not truly partnership until the “new partners” are able to use the branding options….

    the only way to get branding options in the here and now is to become a network partner…

  44. Gideon Shalwick

    my latest vid about the YouTube Partner announcement… what do you think?

  45. [..YouTube..] Am I not able to do this because I post matched third party content? I post good quality HD drum covers and It’d be so awesome to make some money off of the effort I put in. I have around 37,000 total views from my videos added together but am not sure if the music on my channel would make getting a partnership a problem. Could you please help? :O

  46. [..YouTube..] great vid only thing youtube needs to do now is fix adsense. for example i was monetizing my videos on a old channel and someone decided to click the ads which i done got in trouble for and got band from adsense or something instead of the person clicking getting in trouble i had to make a whole new channel cuz of it and a new adsense account but this will help a lot of people out just saying

  47. [..YouTube..] Hey Gideon, great video, but you forgot to mention that the partner program is ONLY available in 20 countries, so not everyone can benefit :(

  48. [..YouTube..] It’s so bad I agree I can’t bea partner :(

  49. [..YouTube..] lol at the ending message

  50. [..YouTube..] screw that the cool thing of being a partner was the banner and thumbnail, if no I don’t need it

  51. [..YouTube..] I don’t have the option of monetizing my videos (YET) in my settings !

  52. [..YouTube..] Hey Gideon, …. proverbially YT made me a “full” partner 2 weeks before they dropped the bar!

    Worth noting monetisation was being made available to non-partners with good view counts some time ago …

    Where did you get the sweet outro?

    Chris

  53. [..YouTube..] Yes very cool, it seems to be the next logical progression for YouTube ..
    Things have been changing rapidly and I can’t wait to see whats next .

  54. [..YouTube..] I have been a partner for a year now and it is not that easy to upload videos you can monetize, the copyright issue gets in them even when you are not using copyrighted material. I have a video with only iLife music and I got a copyright strike, I claimed I had the right to use the copyright free material but the strike was not lifted by the company acussing me. And YouTube does nothing, the partner support just ignored my enquiry and sent me a lot of links that didn’t help the way I was told.

  55. [..YouTube..] Now YouTube is becoming commercialized,with adding the Adsense ads. Its like when Cable TV first came out there was hardly any commercials now they are like the big 3 network stations with 3 to 4 minutes of ads… But there is value as long as YouTube is free to get your message past on… Thanks for the info
    Reg B.

  56. [..YouTube..] i am so glad i subscribed to you :) you really help me out

  57. [..YouTube..] how to get the benefits that the old youtube partners have ??

  58. [..YouTube..] I’m from Croatia.. Can I do this? :)

  59. [..YouTube..] I was really disappointed, the only things I really wanted was the branding and thumbnails since I’m under 18 and can’t make a adsense account anyways :/

  60. [..YouTube..] Love the outro Gideon!

  61. [..YouTube..] I think this is pointless. The part of the partner program I was looking forward to was the thumbnails and the banner. I could already advertise my videos before without being a partner so it didn’t change that at all. This just as bad as trying to add google+ to youtube :/

  62. [..YouTube..] So say I download a video from another site that isn’t on youtube yet but it goes viral, will I still make the money even though it’s not mine? I don’t know…

  63. [..YouTube..] I get a TON of traffic daily to my YouTube videos under my account “guitarmadeez”. I have almost all my videos “monetized” but here’s my problem…
    The YouTube monetization ads are nowhere near relevant to my “guitar niche”. No wonder no one clicks them!
    How can I get guitar ads as my overlay ads? And how can I increase the CPC on them? Do you know anything about this? This could be the makings of a great Gideon Shalwick video ;)

  64. [..YouTube..] Yeah sorry, I should have mentioned that. It’s not available for all countries just yet. Only to users in Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Czech Republic, Colombia, France, French Guiana, Germany, Guadeloupe, India, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Martinique, Mayotte, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Philippines, Poland, Reunion, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom, and the United States

  65. [..YouTube..] Only these countries are open at the moment: Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Czech Republic, Colombia, France, French Guiana, Germany, Guadeloupe, India, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Martinique, Mayotte, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Philippines, Poland, Reunion, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom, and the United States. I think it’s just a matter of time before they open it up.

  66. [..YouTube..] Yeah that is a great point! Providing incentive for people to create more (and better) content. Because it’s those people who create great content on a consistent basis who will win the game in the long run!

  67. [..YouTube..] No probs! Yeah it will be interesting to see how everyone reacts to this… in terms of great content creation and sending YouTube even more traffic, making them even more valuable!

  68. [..YouTube..] Doesn’t YouTube share the income 50% with partners?

  69. [..YouTube..] Ah… to become a “real” partner, you need to show that you can consistently offer great content, and get a healthy (thousands) amount of views and interaction on your videos.

  70. [..YouTube..] No probs Annabel! Grab me on Skype or something so we can catch up for a coffee in Mooloolaba! I notice you’re doing talks at the library – cool stuff!

  71. [..YouTube..] Hehehe – yeah that is not a bad strategy… although I would not give up my day job if I were you, unless you’re getting millions of views :)

  72. [..YouTube..] Yeah I am STILL waiting for the perfect solution. I have ALL the specs it would take to provide a perfect solution… now to find someone who can implement it for me, so that I can promote the heck out of it!

  73. [..YouTube..] Yeah, ads are not appropriate for everyone. It’s nice that you now have a choice of turning them off. I think (in some cases) non-partners did not have that option.

  74. [..YouTube..] Yeah… keeping a close eye on this for sure!

  75. [..YouTube..] Yeah I agree that the viewers will “lose out” a little. Although, if you look at the amazing service YouTube is providing (free video hosting and access to a HUGE audience), it’s a small price to pay. Of course I would also prefer if they did NOT have ads, but how else do you think they can monetize their site so that they can stay in business?

  76. [..YouTube..] Thanks for subbing! Yeah I think you will need quite a lot of views to have this as a financial success. It’s very possible though, if you do it right. Of course I teach other, much more effective, ways of monetizing what you do with video inside my Rapid Video Blogging report. Just google my report to find it :)

  77. [..YouTube..] LOL! Now there is a cool idea! I think this kind of thing is already kinda happening… like, they are almost like fake views, except untraceable. Of course my preference is that something like this do NOT happen on YouTube.

  78. [..YouTube..] Yeah it’s a pitty they have not fully opened it up (yet). But I can only imagine what massive a job it is to do something like this in the first place…

  79. [..YouTube..] Hmm… yeah it may be more challenging for you. But have you tried?

  80. [..YouTube..] Yeah I think a lot of other folks are in the same boat who lost their Adsense accounts and cant get it back. Kinda restricting :(

  81. [..YouTube..] You mean the outro? I gave my video editor to have some fun with it :)

  82. [..YouTube..] Is there any good website you suggest with nice intro/outro music that can be used in the video without copyright issues?

  83. [..YouTube..] Gideon, right now I’m looking at this page, where there’s an ad over in the right column above the “related videos”. However, there’s also an ad plastered into the video player. That’s the one that I find intrusive and offensive. YouTube doesn’t have to incorporate the ads into the video player to monetize.

  84. [..YouTube..] its not a partnership, but just letting them put ads on your website. The official youtube partnership is the true one where you get the banner and such.

  85. [..YouTube..] Lol, yes, another of my little experiments. I had my book printed so it’s fun to get it out to local people that way. Would be fun to get together sometime, will keep you posted when I’m down that way or let me know if you’re near Noosa:)

  86. [..YouTube..] Hmmm… you may not be in the right country?

  87. [..YouTube..] ah you become “real” partner! congrats Chris! Yeah I noticed a lot of people thought they were partner after getting an invite to monetize one or more of their vids that got enough views. But wasn’t this ONLY for those vids that got enough views?

  88. [..YouTube..] Oh there are some AMAZINGLY cool stuff coming up… you just wait! Eg TrueView has just gone live. I may create a little video about that soon…

  89. [..YouTube..] I basically purchase any royalty free music (or other stock images or footages) and keep the receipts and licenses as proof in case YouTube asks. The iLife music may not be royalty free… but that would seem a little silly!

  90. [..YouTube..] Yeah… I guess there is a balance. But I am sure YouTube is aware of that balance… (I hope!)

  91. [..YouTube..] No probs! Thanks for being such a cool subscriber who leaves comments!

  92. [..YouTube..] I think you need “enough” views and big enough audience. Unfortch YouTube does not reveal that exact information…

  93. [..YouTube..] Hmm… nope – looks like Croatia is not listed in one of the 20 countries – sorry, I should have clarified that!

  94. [..YouTube..] That is a bit of a pain – but perhaps an update will come soon for everyone!

  95. [..YouTube..] Yup – the thumbnail and banner thing seems to be a recurring comment here :)

  96. [..YouTube..] Uhm… if it’s not yours, I recommend you do NOT upload it. Only upload content that you own :)

  97. [..YouTube..] I was getting “monetisation” emails on vids that only had 3 or 400 hundred views in the early days, then after about 6 of those emails they enabled it for the whole channel … I applied for Partner program about 2 months ago once I hit 100k views. Amazing how excited one can get about a thumbnail upload button ;)

  98. [..YouTube..] Do you add plenty of text related to your video inside your description area? Also are you optimizing your title and tags? Those are very important. Google “how to get more views on youtube” and my video will show up on the first page that shows you how to optimize that.

  99. [..YouTube..] Yeah, I wonder how they will distinguish between the two different levels now… have not seen any more info on that from YouTube!

  100. [..YouTube..] My video editor tells me Audio Jungle?

  101. [..YouTube..] I have Monetized my Youtube account tonight and there was no problems at that, but I have noticed it hasn’t asked my to link to an Adsense account or create an Adsense account.
    what happens next regarding Adsense

  102. [..YouTube..] Oh, yes, iLife music it is royalty free, it says so in the Apple terms of use, you can use it for work you are commissioned to do and so, but some nasty people are using some of the iLifeTunes, adding a bit of remix at the beginning and at the end of it, letting the main part of the tune remaining as it is in iLife, and copyrighting it. Then, when you use that original iLife tune, the same one they used and remixed and copyrighted, they claim it is their music and YT believes then, not you.

  103. [..YouTube..] I read they are working on having the other features “unlocked” as your channel grows. Just like the longer upload ability that you get after a while. The banners and custom thumbnails and content network advertising would be future account upgrades I would guess.

  104. [..YouTube..] i’ll check that out, thanks!:)

  105. [..YouTube..] Hey Gideon, Thanks for the quick reply! Yeah I have been adding tags just like you said. I go up to the YouTube search bar and begin to type my keywords in and use the ones that YouTube automatically finishes. I’ve heard that too many tags can look bag? I’ve been using 3-5 tags or phrases separated by commas. How many do you use usually? I really don’t think that it has to do with my tags, titles and descriptions though… they all have a ton of guitar stuff in them. Any other thoughts? Thanks!

  106. [..YouTube..] thanks for the reply and yeah i did nothing wrong for it to happen to me i had a art channel that i had to remake plus a channel like this one i am on right now where i promote fellow youtubers to eventually make partner by making a video on someones channel and link viewers to them so they can get views and subs i hope thats my goal for this channel anyway

  107. [..YouTube..] thanks for the reply and yeah i did nothing wrong for it to happen to me i had a art channel that i had to remake plus a channel like this one i am on right now where i promote fellow youtubers to eventually make partner by making a video on someones channel and link viewers to them so they can get views and subs i hope thats my goal for this channel anyway

  108. [..YouTube..] ohh..too bad!

  109. [..YouTube..] What did you mean?I can’t earn nothing with my YouTube account?

  110. Hi Orlaquirke- I’ve used 3 resources for my audio. My intro audio is from shockwave-sound and my outro audio is from Garage Band (Mac software). I have also downloaded but have not yet used audio from DigitalJuice. Once you purchase the music, the license allows you to reuse their music on DVDs and websites without royalties. -Ron

  111. thankyou so much, i’ll keep that in mind
    

  112. If it weren’t for the contract I would have definitely signed up for partnership. But on a less serious note, the puppies really cracked me up. Good job!

  113. I Just want to clear few things. Still not everyone can join the Program since it is not open everywhere yet . I have many videos and views but can’t join the program coz i am living in Thailand.

  115. deezybabyish

    Hello there Gideon. I’m from Macedonia. I’m not a popular guy on youtube don’t have much views and subscribers… but I really want to be a partner on youtube. But I can’t. It’s not available in my country.When it’s going to be available in my country please leave a message or something. And I’m asking you if you could help me out how can I be more popular. Please PM me. Thanks a lot. Cheers, Gideon.

  116. Finally I can earn from my 70+ vids
    But you still need to get people to watch them first
    I’m looking at Powtoon.com to create funny animated video that I hope will get traffic and monetisation
    Cheers Gideon!

  117. Another Con:

    Unfortunately I see a decrease in CPM over the last weeks.
    I am not sure wether or not it is related to the bigger amount of publishers.

  118. sockmonkeymatt

    cons are all because it is not really a partnership

  119. I love the fact that Youtube is giving us another great way to make cash! Thanks for another great video Gideon, always great advice and info.

  120. MyFunnyBrianShow

    If I get to be a real partner someday, I am going to buy Epic Mickey 2!

  121. hey how do you make the intro? can u make a tutorial about that?
    other thing i think you could look more profesional if you use a shirt with your brand or logo

  122. AeroMuncher2k

    all i want is a banner :(…

  123. ZombieTube4u

    how do you create an adsense account please reply i subbed

  124. danielbezden

    My concern about becoming a partner is that when I embed video to my site (the studio kitchen com) I don’t want ads running ahead of my video. I don’t mind if they run on my Youtube channel but not where they are embedded.

    Do you know if they will run in both scenarios?

  125. Lauren

    Hi,

    I really love your videos. The info provided was really helpful. On a slightly unrelated note, I was wondering how you achieved this video quality? I’m looking to ramp up the quality of my videos and I love the white background and how crisp you look (and shine free!). Would love to get some tips from you on how to create similar looking videos. Please feel free to email me or reply directly in this thread. Thanks so much!

    -Lauren

  126. thank u ^^

  127. You have a really cool channel.
    I have a question: are you using adobe after effects for all your text on your videos? what software are you using and would you do a video on how you do everything. I think people would really like to know that.

    You are so right, there is no real benefit to anyone to become a partner if you don’t get the perks. All it gets is more scrutiny and I think the advertisers are getting screwed.

    I love your channel. I think it is one of the most organized, most professional channels out there. It has me, for the first time, clicking on the banner of a channel and leaving a comment. Give us some insights into how we can become a legit partner of Youtube.

    Will they just spring it on us one day? I have nearly 30k views so far and I would like to know what I have to do? What are the real parameters? When can I get the “real deal?”

    Great job. Tell us how you do your videos?
    John

  128. The main thing I want to know is when can I design and choose my own thumbnail? You guys have such an advantage with that option? Why does youtube stick it to everyone else by prohibiting us from doing that?

  129. pavanpkc

  131. Matthew

    Gideon. Your thumbnails are great on the videos. Do you discuss anywhere how I can do that? Customized YouTube thumbnails?

  132. Matthew

    Your thumbnails play buttons are cool Gideon. You made customized ones on YouTube player. Do you discuss anywhere how we can do that?

  133. Why cant I partnership? I get a registration error…?

  134. Shovelware

    Why cant I partnership? I get a registration error…?

  135. ThePhantomalien

    THX SO MUCH

  136. projectsparetime

    the most important is the ability to select a good thumbnail so people can watch, otherwise we are all stagnating and not moving forward. Do you know there is a feature ‘store’ that is now showing on one of my channels.. i could not get to put anything there to sell.

  137. exesm3k3eu

    Well maybe in your country you can for the rest of us it’s not like that I don’t even have that many oftions in settings, this sucks!!!

  143. Izz Kusanagi

    sadly i can’t, it says that youtube patner wont supporting my country.

  144. HnRblog2

    We are trying to get a partnership, I think we can since are videos are monotized (but we are not getting paid) so we need to get an Adsence account. Once we have the Adsence account how will the money be coming in exactly? That part confuses us.

  145. MMOEarth

    For me it says that this feature is not available to my country, what can i do about it? Is this partnership really limited thru countries?

  146. AdamKloszFilms

    You said if you don’t get many views you’ll only be getting a couple of dollars a month, how much is not many views?

  147. AdamKloszFilms

    Mine doesn’t come up with enable my account, how do i fix it?

  148. Lets face it, they should have either mentioned that a) Only the monetization part is working right now or b) that by becoming a “partner” you will just be a money cow.
    I couldn’t care less about their money. They can keep it.
    The only thing I was interested in was to be able to give me videos thumbnails & to give my channel some flair… If they plan to “upgrade to the ‘old’ partner’s” level, they should have implemented that first. OR should have called it “ad partner”. A “Partner” is defined.

    ok thx

  151. NationalSkaters

    Hey im a youtube partner if i upload a video would i get views or do i have to promote my videos cause im confuse

  152. TheAlbinoPlatypus

    Fuck monetization, I’ve had that since May. Just recently my channel had a small explosion of subscribers and views so I applied last night for partnership. I got excited the next day (today) when I received an email that I had been accepted! Now I realize I didn’t get anything I actually wanted from this. Damn it YouTube!

  153. ViktorPacino

    Hello Gideon Shalwick, please reply this comment!!!
    The thing is that I have monetized my only video in my channel and I became a partner. But I don´t want to make money with AdSense account. The only thing that I want is to have a banner for my channel and a watch page channel icon. That´s it! I repeat: I don´t want to make money. Now these “appearance settings” will be applied soon or they will not be applied at all? Please reply! I would really, really, really appreciate it!!!

  154. GideonShalwick

    Hey Viktor – I heard a rumor that YouTube will soon make the thumbnail option available to all users. But I dont know when they will make this possible for everyone. The only way at the moment is become a “full” partner.

  155. wokzilla

    yayyyyyyy…do u know when

  156. GideonShalwick

    nope sorry… perhaps they will release more info some time soon.

  157. ViktorPacino

    Hey Gideon, my YouTube Partnership Program (the FULL one) wont show up. I did everything but It does not appear. I want the application.

  172. Kristi Mara

    man it is different to me i don’t know where to active please help :( :(

  173. Macsterreloaded

    would like youtube to add banner to the new youtube partners

  174. Wesley5714

    I only see youtube being the ONLY people benefiting from this. On this standard I’m a youtube ” partner ” but because I’m not a GREEDY BASTARD I don’t monetize my videos. I have no interest in it. No I didn’t sing up all they said is your now a youtube partner in a e-mail they sent me. And I’d wish they didn’t I get no benefits for this outside of monetizing my videos which is useless to me.

  175. bossfilsproductions

    since this was made monts ago can you now do some of the cons like make your own youtube thumnail

  176. michale mcfalfy

    check out my videos pleasei dont have a lot but if any one could please watch them i would be very happy thanks

  178. AnimeMeish

    So what will it take for me to make at least 5 to 10 bucks a month

  179. Legotioned

    The thumbnails are available for everyone now, but I’m really waiting for the branding options! Do you know if the rumors, that say that you should have more views and subscribers to get these branding options, are true, or if it is just a matter of time untill they enable these options for everyone? Please answer this question!

  180. GideonShalwick

    Sorry but I don’t know… I guess we just have to wait and see!

  181. Brenty108

    Are you a partner?

  182. GideonShalwick

    yup

  183. Maria Morlino

    Hi loved your video! Was wondering how I can monetize all of my videos. I have 80+ videos and youtube has only accepted two. Also do you really need an adsense account to be paid? I read their description but not clear to me.Please let me know. I am a vocalist trying to get more views on my videos. Thanks!

  184. munchycraft122

    I only want to become a partner for the banner and thumbnails, useless

  185. mermaid2502dolphin

  187. bokeflo

    Interesting, I was wondering why Youtube kept showing me a link to apply to become a partner.
    Thanks for the info.

  188. John Ay

    do you earn money ?

  189. Paul Grout

    Hi Gideon, if we become Youtube partners are there options to stop the short ads appearing on the videos?

  190. tutubefun

    THAT is the dummest thing youtube invented. Why can I upload a darn banner!!! or thumbnail. WOW.

  191. funkyguigui101

    BTW to everybody, I’m a partner and I can choose my own custom thumbnails. You just have to go to the video manager, and then you go to your video and under the
    pre-chosen thumbnails you should see “custom thumbnail” written. Hope this helps.

  192. funkyguigui101

  193. myshoppinggenieleads

    Hi did you join the new 2012 partnership program available to everybody? If so when does Youtube actually give the thumbnail options?

  194. MrBallentine24

    Thanks 4 the info

  195. funkyguigui101

  196. I have a branded channel but without the banner …

  227. dresdensvo

    How many views before the choice to monitze happens?
    I dont have a web site so adsense sends me back to the utube dead end.

  228. Royalkillcamz

    on question 3, how do you fill in the url thing?

  229. Wookie Pack

    Are you an ‘old school partner’?

  230. Wookie Pack

    No. You get a view if someone watches your video for 10 secs i believe. You make money when the viewer(s) buy what the ad advertises. You make about 15% of how much is spent,

    So if they buy something for $100 because of the ad on your video, You get $15. I think it’s $15. I might be wrong…

    Hope that this helped.

  231. Mario Zdravkovski

    If you desire to get more cash, you should go and google Pudgy Paycheck Secret. That can help you get the money you deserve.

  232. alop tiwari

    Partner Program tel me in HINDI also.
