Hey there, content creators! I've got some super exciting news that's going to make your heart race with joy. Brace yourselves, because YouTube just made a big move by lowering the eligibility criteria for its YouTube Partnership Program (YPP). This means that it's now even easier for you to start monetizing your channel and accessing a range of incredible features.
So, what are the new requirements? Well, it's simple. You now need to have at least 500 subscribers and 3 valid public uploads in the last 90 days. Additionally, you must have either 3,000 valid public watch hours on long-form content over the past year or 3 million valid public watch views in the last 90 days. Sounds achievable, right?
With these lowered eligibility criteria, you'll open the doors to a whole new world of opportunities. Imagine being able to promote your own products using YouTube Shopping, and gaining access to fan funding features like "Super Thanks," "Super Chat," and "Super Stickers." Not to mention, you'll also have the chance to offer channel memberships, which allows your viewers to become paid members and enjoy exclusive perks.
But that's not all! You'll also gain access to YouTube Creator Support, a valuable resource that can provide guidance and assistance as you navigate your YouTube journey. This level of support can be a game-changer, especially for those of you who are just starting out.
Now, I know what you're thinking. When will this fantastic opportunity be available in India? While YouTube is introducing this new level of YPP, it will be initially rolling it out to creators in the U.S., U.K., Canada, Taiwan, and South Korea over the coming weeks. But fear not, YouTube plans on introducing this new level of YPP across all countries where YPP is available. While I don't have an exact date for you my fellow Indians, keep an eye out for the announcement, and be sure to sign up for email notifications. This way, you'll be among the first to know when you can apply.
It's important to note that as your channel grows and you meet the higher eligibility requirements, which are 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 valid watch hours in the past year or 10 million valid public shorts views in the last 90 days, you'll unlock even more incredible opportunities. This includes earning through YouTube advertising and premium subscriptions without having to go through the full re-application process.
So, it's time to grab this opportunity with both hands. Head over to YouTube Studio, navigate to earn, and apply whenever you get early access, or go to https://studio.youtube.com/channel/UC/monetization to apply or track your progress toward eligibility!
Remember, success on YouTube is all about perseverance, dedication, and creating content that resonates with your audience. With the lowered eligibility criteria, YouTube is making it easier for you to turn your passion into a thriving career.
