YouTube is Demonetising my Channel

Ahh… YouTube…

As of Feb 20, 2018, my YouTube channel will be ineligible to earn money.

YouTube Partner Program (YPP) announced new rules for channel monetization. Eligible channels need to have at least 1,000 subscribers and 240,000 of watched minutes in the past 12 months.

My channel does not qualify for the new rules because I only have about 500 subscribers and around 150,000 of watched minutes. That means I will have to work harder to grow my audience.

So what’s my pay cut?
My YouTube channels currently makes around $100 per year. It’s a tiny amount that I can survive without. However, once I reach the minimum requirement for YPP eligibility, my income will at least double.

I estimate that it will take me at least a year to grow my channel in order to get enough subscribers and watched minutes.

If you would like to support me, feel free to subscribe to my YouTube channel. If you do subscribe, please let me know in the comment section below. That would be so helpful.

My videos have improved this year as I invested in a good camera, mic and a tripod for my video shoots.
