How Do I Become A YouTube Partner?

So Adsense now comes to video, and the big question everyone wants to know now is…

How do I become a YouTube partner so I can earn the big bucks from the new Adsense video ads?


Well, guess what, it’s not going to be easy. Here’s what we know.

1. There are about 100 pre-selected partners already who have signed agreements with Google.

For now, the system’s scope, and its potential to deliver new revenue to Google, is limited, because only about 100 media companies that have created YouTube videos will be participating.

Google declined to give a full list of participants, but of those it listed, none were large media companies. They include Expert Village, a producer of how-to videos; Ford Models, a modeling agency; and Extreme Elements, which creates videos about extreme sports. Over time, Google expects to use AdSense to syndicate other types of content besides video, the company said.

2. Those partners were selected from the YouTube Partners page.

3. If you look at the partners, they have mostly high-quality, good video content in a targeted niche.

Summary: Becoming a YouTube partner takes one thing. You need to make high-quality, well-lit, good content solving videos. And you need to make a lot of them. Then, and only then will you be able to apply for a partner status and if accepted the big bucks will start rolling in.

Of course, the problem with this is that this is hard, hard work… to make those videos. So many will write this off not going to work.

Actual Amazon.com Reviews...

"Jim Kukral's new book pisses me off. And not because it's a lousy book, and reading it was a waste of time. His book pisses me off because in it, Jim interviews really, really, successful people who ARE living their dreams. And, I'm jealous. I want a turn, you know?" - Joel Libava

"I loved this short, informative, encouraging e-book. The stories of others who have been successful building a business around their lifestyle is a wake up call for me to get off my butt and do it! Thanks Jim for this book!" - Sienna

"I was having kind of a blah day, I read this book, now I feel like a million bucks and have renewed inspiration to go make a million bucks." - Eric Woodard

    Anti-Haters it not about hate, it’s all about Youtube(Google) slowly turning againt long term users and supporting big money (RIPFILMS) over little startups like (AtheneWins) as Athene says net neutrality has gone to the dogs.

    look at Google(Youtube) selling out Chinese people by telling on them to their government, The same Google(Double Click) that is tracking PayPal payments if YOU like it or not.

    Google(Youtube) souled their souls long ago.

    Ryan your deluding yourself you wont see any dirty Youtube money no matter how many Google Execs YouBlow.

    Making videos is a lot of fun. Finding a good place to show them is even better. I am not really wanting to be a partner, but found the article interesting to read.
