If you are thinking that you can earn money on YouTube only through Ads then you are very wrong, there are many ways on YouTube by which you can earn money, even without 1000 subscribers and 4000 hours of Watch time.
I am listing here some of the ways to earn money on YouTube:
Super Chat, Super Sticker, and Super Thanks
You don't need Monetization for Affiliate marketing and Sponsorship.
This is the most basic way to earn through YouTube, you only need 1000 subscribers, 4000 hours of Watch time, 0 Active Community Guidelines, and 2 Factor Authentication. But sadly the earning from Ads in India is very less and that's why we need other ways too.
2. Affiliate Marketing:
Affiliate marketing is a very simple way to earn money and not only through YouTube, you can earn through other platforms like Instagram, Facebook, and Website. For this, I have a full video uploaded on our YouTube channel, you can watch it and get detailed steps for Affiliate marketing.
Well, Sponsorship is the main way by which you can earn most of the money on YouTube, more than through Ads. But getting Sponsorship is not much easy. For this, you have to do a lot of work. However, there is no minimum requirement of Subscribers for this but as per my experience you should have at least 2K subscribers, and then only you can get Sponsorship, and in starting brands don't reach out to you directly for sponsorship, you should reach to brands with the email or any other contact details of Brands.
Membership or Join feature is a feature provided by YouTube so that Creators can earn more, and not only Creators but also YouTube 😜 as 30% of earnings through any member is kept by YouTube but for this feature, you should have monetization on.
5. Super Chat, Super Stickers, and Super Thanks:
For Super Chat and Super Stickers you need Monetization On and for Super Thanks also you need Monetization On and over that you need attention from YouTube, well this feature is rolling out to Creators and the work is in progress so it depends that whether you get this feature or not.
6. Products Feature:
This feature is also in the rolling out process and slowly YouTube is giving this to Creators. With this feature, products in the Video are shown to Viewers with buying links and YouTube gives a commission on that product to Creator.
