Digital music is one of the most popular formats to monetize, but it also has some tricky business realities.
In the digital music business, digital artists can’t make a living if they’re paid for streaming, because Spotify pays artists for every song they stream.
The same applies to digital videos, which also can’t be made a living unless you’re compensated for the ads they generate.
But there’s a growing community of musicians who want to earn money from their work through YouTube and other platforms.
Digital music streaming platforms are growing in popularity, but they also face the challenge of maintaining a sustainable revenue stream in the face of rising competition from streaming platforms like Spotify.
Here’s how to make money from your YouTube videos.
Step 1: Create a YouTube channelThe first step to getting started is creating a YouTube page for your YouTube channel.
Here are some things you should look out for:• Your channel name and the channel name in your YouTube search results.• What genres and styles of music your videos will have.• Which songs you want to be featured on your channel, such as hip-hop, rap, and electronic.• Whether you want your videos to be available in a variety of formats, such, for free, paid or in a paid version.• The type of music that you want featured.• Your YouTube channel title and description.• If you want an artist to be included on your YouTube playlist, which should be the case.• How you want the music to be shared and monetized.• Any advertising you want.
Step 2: Create your videoIn addition to creating a channel, you can also set up a video for your channel.
You should create a video that’s more than a few minutes long, and it should feature the best of your music.
YouTube will then automatically embed your video into your YouTube page.
Here are some tips for creating your YouTube video:• You should be aware of your audience.
YouTube is an interactive platform, so YouTube will ask you to create a different video each time you add a new user to your channel (which is an optional step).• You can create videos with music or video clips, but you should avoid clips that have more than 2 seconds of music or more than 4 seconds of video.• You may need to add your name to your video.
It can be used as a tag or as a name for the video.
For example, “YouTube Video of Mihai R. Pouzakis.”• You need to be creative.
You don’t want to just add a title and the video title and be done with it.
You need a name that describes the video, so you can easily identify the person in the video who created it.
Step 3: Link to your YouTube accountNow that you’ve created a YouTube video for yourself, you’ll want to link it to your account on YouTube.
YouTube allows you to do this by selecting “Link to YouTube” in the upper right-hand corner of the YouTube dashboard, as shown below.• From here, you should choose a link that has the word “LINK” at the end of it.• This will take you to the YouTube page where you can create and upload a video.
Step 4: Create and upload your videoNow that your YouTube YouTube video has been linked to your page, you will be able to upload your YouTube stream to YouTube.
You’ll want your video to include a title, description, and your YouTube username.
Step 5: Tag your videoIf you want a user to be able see your YouTube streams, you need to tag your video with the word, “LIKELY.”
If your video is tagged, it will appear in the “Like” box when users watch it.
Step 6: Upload the videoOnce your video has a YouTube link, you’re ready to upload it.
First, select the “Upload” button at the top of the “YouTube” page, as seen below.
