youtube money program
Even if you have only a single hit on YouTube, you might be able to make money from its Partner Program.

Making money off your YouTube videos—even a single hit—just got easier.

The Google-owned company announced Thursday, in an official blog post, that the qualifications for monetizing videos on YouTube have expanded.

Before, in order to make money in the Partner program, interested video-uploaders had to go through an application process as well as meet a variety of qualifications, including production of regular, higher-quality content. There are roughly 30,000 YouTubers in the Partner Program.

Now, YouTubers can choose to monetize a single video, which then grants them access to the Partner Program and all the helpful resources that come from it. More information on the process can be found here—and users can monetize their videos by visiting the account monetization page here. The process is certainly simpler but takes more than a simple click.

The changes went into effect  this week in the following countries: Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Japan, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

“Every day, creative individuals turn to YouTube to share their talents, lessons and opinions with the world,” wrote an official YouTube spokesperson to the Daily Dot in an email. “For many, what started as a hobby has become a career. Giving more eligible creators the opportunity to join the YouTube Partner Program will allow even more people to benefit from programs and resources to be successful in this journey.”
