How To Get Into YouTube Partnership Program ?


We all know how our attention span is getting shorter and shorter. We are no longer patient to read long text, we are no longer able to wait till the long introduction is finished to get the actual content.

If we can’t wait, we just Google and go to some other site which provides the meat directly. Keeping the fluff at bay!

With all these early evolution and internet still being in its infancy, Video content has gained a lot of credibility and viewership.

There are many people who are making their living by shooting videos. And no, these people are not Hollywood or Bollywood video makers! They are just like you and me. They are normal people like us. So I thought, if I’m normal too then why not try this!!

It’s comparatively easy to get YouTube Partnership these days. Earlier there were lot of restrictions like country, daily impressions etc. But now, as far I know original useful content is all it needs for one to get into YouTube’s Partnership program.
