Available for youtube shorts creators
I’m sure when you start creating content, the questions that comes to your mind are how you can make a living out of it? Is it worthy of being a creator? Can I also monetise my content? From what all sources I can earn?
Well there are endless questions, but each question has an answer, and we will be answering all your questions in the days to come, but for now I have an exciting news for you about YouTube Shorts Fund .
As one the earliest & most popular creator platforms, YouTube has helped launch the careers of many YouTube celebrities like PewDiePie, Lilly Singh, Carry Minati, Technical Guruji & Bhuvan Bam. YouTube has always been one of the early starters and have paved a path for creator monetisation through AdSense and has added features like tipping and channel memberships to help creators earn cash for their content.
Now YouTube is supporting short-form video creators with the YouTube Shorts Fund. Announced in May 2021, the $100 million fund is for creators generating content on YouTube Shorts, and this fund will be available for the creators till the end of 2022.
Creators who are eligible for the YouTube Shorts Fund are paid out bonuses between $100 and $10,000 each month, depending on the performance of their YouTube Shorts videos. Eligibility refreshes each month, and performance-based pay is determined by factors like views and audience location.
Eligibility for the YouTube Shorts Fund:
Meet YouTube’s YouTube Shorts performance criteria in the preceding month.
Be at least 13 years old, or the age of majority in your country.
Be a resident of an eligible country.
Have uploaded an original YouTube Short in the last 180 days.
Have an active Adsense connected account to claim the shorts bonus
Create original content: channels uploading content with watermarks or logos from third-party social media platforms are not eligible. Reused, non-original content also won’t be counted toward Shorts performance.
Apply to the YouTube Shorts Fund:
YouTube reaches out to thousands of creators each month who are developing YouTube Shorts on the platform who meet the performance criteria and the said creators can claim the bonus, and creators cannot apply for the YouTube Shorts Fund directly.
