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 systemâ€™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.
