How To Monetize And Grow Your YouTube Channel

This Ultimate Guide on how to grow and monetize your YouTube channel was created through a series of interviews with inspiring YouTubers. Thank you Kraig, Michelle, Daniel, Rory, Justin and Ryan for participating. You’re awesome.

Every minute, more than 300 hours of video content is uploaded to YouTube. Since 2005, YouTube has been a place to create, upload and share.

Today, the platform has over one-billion users and is ranked second in the Alexa Top 50 List of Global Sites.

With almost 5 billion videos being watched on YouTube every single day, it has become a major source of income for many through affiliate marketing, AdSense, and sponsorships.

More Features For More Users

A note from the CEO on why we changed the way we charge for our service.

Over the past few years, we have invested heavily in developing awesome new features. Features like the ability to place remarketing pixels in your links, A/B testing, UTM support, language-based targeting, a reporting engine and Choice Pages (which we’re currently working hard to level up).
