How to become a YouTube Partner?


I have a few videos up on YouTube that have tens of thousands of hits. I’m not greedy or anything, but I figure if anyone is going to make money off of my videos, I should get a piece of the pie. What do I need to do to become a YouTube Partner and monetize my videos?

YouTube has a “Creator Hub” that can help show you the way. To get to it, go to YouTube and look at the very bottom of the page for a link to “Creators and Partners.” If you meet the criteria (a mix of requirements for original content, views, etc.) you can go to “monetization” in your account settings and opt in. It will tell you if you are not eligible.
