1000 Youtube Subscribers and Approved for the Youtube Partner Program!
24 months has been full of milestones. I have been paying myself for one full quarter, I've reached 1000 email subscribers, I passed 1000 Youtube subscribers, I passed 4000 public watch hours of my content, and I've finally been approved to be apart of the Youtube Partner Program.
What is the Youtube Partner Program?
For those who don't know there are quite a few ways to make money on Youtube. You can do affiliate marketing, brand sponsorships, sell services, and place ads on your videos.
Unfortunately, you can't start out making money with all of these ways. You have to first put out content that people are looking for (like what we're taught in the Online Entrepreneur Certification) and you have to be persistent enough that your channel grows. After you have more than 1000 subscribers and 4000 public watch hours, you can submit your channel for review.
Once Youtube reviews your channel and decides it's suitable for their partner program, you can monetize with ads.
Just 2 hours ago, I recieved a message from youtube saying:
Your channel Tiffany Domena, has passed the 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 public watch hours (in the last 12 months) requirement of the YouTube Partner Program.
Your channel is not monetizing yet. Go to the Monetization section of YouTube Studio to check next steps.

Then one hour ago, I recieved another message that says:
Congratulations -- your YouTube channel, Tiffany Domena, has been accepted into the YouTube Partner Program and is now able to monetize on YouTube!
To get you started, check out the YouTube Creator Hub so you can stay connected to the YouTube team and other Creators like you.
We also recommend reviewing the YouTube Help Center to learn more about monetizing on YouTube, including:
- What kind of content you can monetize
- Different ways you can monetize on YouTube
- How to monetize specific videos
- Monetization icon guide
As with everything related to YouTube, use your common sense, don’t abuse the site, and be respectful of others when choosing what content to monetize.
We’re looking forward to working with you!

How much can you make with ads?
The amount you make with ads depends on the topics that your videos are about. Some people make hundreds and some people make 10s of thousands. Of course the high end are the anomalies, but if you plan it right, it's reasonable to expect to make a couple thousand per month with Youtube ads. Topics that attract a buying audience tend to make more than channels that don't. Nursery rhymes and channels that entertain people who don't buy, don't make much money with ads.
The cool thing is this can be one revenue stream in addition to affiliate income, products, services, brand deals, and other options. It can really be awesome!
How long did it take me to Meet this Milestone?
I started my Youtube channel somewhere around March last year (2019). I did a post here sharing how I was scared, but I was going to do it anyway.
I started out by binge publishing content. Over time, I got to see what content was in the highest demand, and I kept publishing more of that.
Now, I plan to go thru the links Youtube sent me and start monetizing my content.
I want to give a special thanks to BenjisDad, Kyle, Carson, Jay, and all those who have supported me within this amazing community. Your support helped me to reach this goal.
