how to make money from youtube shorts

YouTube Shorts is a relatively new feature on the YouTube platform that allows users to create short-form videos that are 60 seconds or less.

Here are some ways to make money from YouTube Shorts:

  1. Ad revenue: Like traditional YouTube videos, Shorts are also eligible for ad revenue. If your Shorts receive a high number of views and engagement, you can earn money from the ads that are displayed before or during your video.

  2. Brand deals: As your Shorts gain popularity, you may receive sponsorship or brand deals. Brands may approach you to feature their product or service in your Shorts, and you can charge them for it.

  3. Affiliate marketing: You can also include affiliate links in your Shorts' descriptions or within the video itself. When someone clicks on the link and makes a purchase, you can earn a commission.

  4. Merchandise: You can create and sell merchandise related to your Shorts, such as T-shirts or stickers, and earn money from the sales.

  5. Donations: If your viewers enjoy your content, they may choose to donate to your channel. You can set up a tip jar or donation link to accept donations from your viewers.
