 One excellent way to make money online is by creating unique and quality video content on YouTube. Think about the last time you scrolled through Facebook and how many videos you see on your timeline in a single day. 

A stunning revelation is that people love watching and engaging with quality video content on social media. This is why Instagram stands out as one of the fastest-growing social networks.

Founded in 2005, YouTube is the most popular video-publishing site on the internet today. According to the 2018 YouTube statistics published by Ominicore, over 5 billion videos are watched worldwide daily. 

Furthermore, YouTube has active monthly users of over 2 billion, making it the second most popular social network after Facebook.

YouTube is a really excellent way to make money, and when done right, it can be a very lucrative business idea. In this post, we look to share some essential strategies for doubling or tripling your income by creating video content and monetizing them on YouTube.

Ways To Make Money on YouTube in Cameroon

Here's how to make passive income on Youtube and get paid per view:

  1. Monetize your videos for Ads on YouTube
  2. Sell your own products or service
  3. Sell and market affiliate products on YouTube.

  4. Get sponsorships for your video content.
Let's elaborate on those points above.

1. Monetize your videos for Ads on YouTube

Youtube monetization works based on the platform provided by Google, called Google Adsense. It is Google Adsense, which pays you for your published videos and not YouTube.

First, your channel must have at least 4,000 hours of watch time within the previous year to qualify for monetization and a minimum of 1,000 subscribers. This policy went into effect at the beginning of 2018 and is another way for YouTube to prioritize watch time.

Four steps to enable monetization on YouTube

Once your channel has achieved the total number of required YouTube hours and subscribers, you are ready to make money on your videos.

  1. Click on My Channel in the drop-down after clicking on your icon in the top right corner.
  2. From this screen, click on YouTube Studio.
  3. On the bottom, left-hand side of your screen, click the option for Creator Studio Classic.
  4. Once you're in the Creator Studio, click on Channel > Status and Features. Finally, in the box that says monetization, click Enable.

After you have enabled 'monetization' on your YouTube channel, your videos can be approved. To earn the revenue generated from these ads, you must associate a Google AdSense account with your YouTube account.

2. Sell your own products or service

Learn what your viewers need and sell them something of value. If you want to make 100 percent of the revenue and fully control the money coming in? To do this, you need to sell your own products or service.

For example, let's say you create a mini online training program that you sell for $250. If you can convert just one viewer in every 1,000 views to your $250 video course, you'll have made $0.25 per view…more than 59-times what you would make with YouTube ads.

You can sell your products on popular e-commerce platforms like Amazon, Shopify, or Aliexpress. These platforms provide an online store for you to sell your products. By mentioning or linking your products in your videos, you can direct traffic to your e-commerce spot on any platform and make some extra cash.

3. Sell & market affiliate products on YouTube

Affiliate marketing means selling products in exchange for a commission. Hundreds of thousands of companies offer attractive deals to affiliate marketers who promote their products, including huge companies like Amazon and eBay and smaller companies.

Affiliate marketing is a hugely popular way to make money online from home. Instead of relying on static blogs to drive people to affiliate links, try creating a lively YouTube channel and using it as the primary catalyst for driving traffic and generating sales for affiliate websites.

The top 2 affiliate marketing programs in Cameroon today include:

To make money from YouTube as an affiliate marketer, review affiliate products such as mobile phones, laptops, and cars, or create ""how to use this product"" tutorials.

 Don't forget to link to your products in your YouTube descriptions – make sure you're using your affiliate link or won't get credit for sales.

4. Get sponsorships for your video contents

If you study some of the most successful YouTubers, you'll notice the sponsorships and advertisements they have in their video recordings. Lots of companies nowadays provide support to YouTube channels for direct advertising.

The great thing about sponsorships is that you don't have to give YouTube a cut. To reach for support, you might need to work on a detailed proposal about what you can provide. Make sure you know well about your audience and the brand you are approaching.

In most cases, the revenue you generate from sponsorships is substantially more than YouTube ad revenue. If you want to get a brand deal and become an influencer on YouTube, you must put yourself out there to be discovered.

Steps to getting a brand deal or sponsorship:

  • Find brands and campaigns that match your audience.
  • Pitch your creative ideas and present the proposal to the brand within their parameters (product review, 30-60 shoutout, etc.)
  • If accepted, you are hired and will begin collaboration with the brand to produce the project.
  • Build out content and seek brand approval.
  • Get Paid.


It doesn't happen overnight! YouTube is a great way to make extra income for your business, but it isn't easy. To make a noticeable amount of money, you'll need to attract thousands of viewers to each video. You'll need to build trust for your channel by creating consistent, quality content that entertains, informs, and delights.

Making money on YouTube doesn't have to depend on advertising, and it certainly doesn't mean being held back by new YouTube advertiser policies. The good thing is that you can combine two or more ways of making money on YouTube to boost your monthly earnings.

However, ensure your video contents are of good quality for your target audience. If you have extra money to spend on equipment, opt for an excellent digital camera to do the job instead of using your phone camera.
