YouTube instantly has become livelihood of many people and there are some people who have made fortunes just from it, for example, Piwdipie who’s net worth is estimated to be $20 million as of January.
But from past years declined has been noted in YouTube earnings and do you know why.
Yes, you guessed it right “Adblocker” but we can’t just accuse people who use adblockers as sometimes advertisement really annoys us and plays and when it is not required.
To make up to this YouTube has come with 3 new ways by which YouTubers can earn more money.
YouTube as a Netflix
With the new feature, it has become mini Netflix.
Since the launch of the new feature, YouTubers can earn from paid membership which will be a collection of exclusive videos, content, members-only emoji and badges, and other services for $4.99 monthly and YouTube will charge 30% of the membership also.
Who knows it will be a success or not but there are some people who follow their YouTubers religiously and may pay for the subscription for the exclusive services.
But there is one limitation in it as YouTube has made an eligibility criterion for the paid subscription which is 100,000 subscribers, which means you need to be popular before you make some extra bucks.
Though, they have also mentioned that the eligibility criteria may change in future. So, don’t worry folks have patience.
