How can one make money on YouTube?

I understand that by posting videos on YouTube a person can generate a monetary benefit, depending on the number of "views" that the video receives.

How does this work?

Please provide a link for information, if possible.

    To make money in Youtube, you need a viral video with a lot of views.. the option to monetize your video will be there when you signed up to your Youtube accounts.

    The simplest way is you get the traffic from YouTube and send it to affiliate programs. You could be getting paid per leads, or per sales, very quickly.

    And then, you can also make money by becoming Youtube partner. Once you became their partner, they will put ads in your video (you see the ads before a video is played? or the one in the bottom of the video? that's Youtube ads). You will make money when people see your videos! And the best thing is it's recurring.. you upload it one time, and you get the commission the rest of your life.

    If you are an internet marketer, you can also simply put your website link or products link to your Youtube video and it will help you generate traffics to your site! :)

    First you need to be a trusted member for a month on youtube.

    E.g. No copyright strikes/infringements.

    Then when you set up monetization to your paypal account.

    You could also get into a partnership if your videos are good enough.

    Partnerships require you to upload a certain amount/quality of video every month I think.

    If you get more view, you get more money.

    Hope this helps.

    Much like the guy above this comment, you must have a certain number of video views and subscribers,

    then you must verify you account and apply for a YouTube partnership. All you have to do then is start uploading and receiving your monthly payment from YouTube.
