Questions About Working on YouTube: Q&A for Creators

Always dreamed of a career on YouTube? From signing up to monetization, our article will help you understand the questions that aspiring creators ask most often. We won’t go into all the intricacies, we’ll just say that anyone can get started on YouTube if they’re passionate about what they want to talk about. So let’s see what you’ll need.

YouTube’s Most Frequently Asked Questions

1. How to start a YouTube channel?

First, create an account on the platform using your email or phone number. Then go to “Create Channel” and follow the signup instructions. Pick a unique channel name, and don’t forget to customize basic features such as description, profile picture, and banner.

2. What are the requirements for monetizing a YouTube channel?

In order to become a member of the Partner Program, you must have a good reputation on YouTube, comply with the guidelines regarding monetization of content and live in the country or region where the program operates.

To access fan-funding, certain YouTube Shopping features, and other options, the channel must have:

500 subscribers, 3 public videos in the last 90 days, and (one of two) 3,000 valid hours of viewing time in the last 12 months or 3 million Shorts views in the last 90 days.

Additional benefits, including ad revenue sharing and YouTube Premium, become available when a creator gains:

1,000 subscribers, and (one of two things) 4,000 valid hours of public video views in the last 12 months or 10 million valid views of public Shorts in the last 90 days.

3) How to get an audience on YouTube?

The best minds from all over the world are pondering over this question 🙂 In fact, there won’t and can’t be a simple answer here, because you need to study the platform and understand the logic of its work. Research keywords, learn from your competitors to make catchy titles, tags and descriptions. Pay special attention to the visuals: you only have one shot at engaging the viewer, and you need to use it to the fullest. 

MAKE QUALITY CONTENT. That’s the baseline. 

Be sure to heavily interact with your audience, provoke comments (but don’t provoke users), socialize, organize contests and polls, and DO promote your videos through all social media platforms and collaborations with other creators.  

4) Other ways to make money on YouTube.

Aside from directly monetizing videos, one of the best ways to make money both was and still is advertising. However, before you can count on money from sponsors, you will have to work hard: a big brand is unlikely to notice a channel with 1,000 subscribers. 

Super Chat and Super Stickers

During streaming, viewers can promote their comments to the top of the chat via donations, or just send you Super Stickers for money. So don’t forget to stream regularly 🙂 

YouTube Shopping

If you’re gonna make unboxing and product review videos, you can tag them right in the video and then the viewer will have the option to go to the manufacturer’s or store’s website. If the item is purchased, you’ll receive a reward.  


Members subscribe to your channel for a separate monthly fee. You’ll have to offer them exclusive content, or any other incentive to keep members happy and you’ll get donations every month.  

YouTube BrandConnect

BrandConnect uses Google technology to understand your audience, match you with great brands, and help drive results with campaign management. We show you your options, you decide which brands you work with,” the YouTube website says.

Super Thanks

This is a way for the viewer to thank the creator for their work and leave them a donation. You’ll see if someone sent it to you when the most colorful “Thank you!” or applause emoji shows up in your comment section.  

5) How to create interesting content?

We’re pretty sure that to do that, you have to be madly in love with what you’re making videos about. This has been shown to work almost 100% of the time. If you love tech and know how to talk about it in an interesting way – don’t look at the competition, do the best reviews you can. Do you like movies or TV shows? Go ahead, tell us something we’ve never heard before. 

Interviews, streams, tutorials, experimenting with topics – just pick something that makes your eyes sparkle and your heart beat faster. The rest will come in the process.  

Keep learning, follow trends (or better yet, create them), use good equipment, and create only the best videos!

6) How to avoid bans and other troubles?

To do this, study the platform’s guidelines closely. It’s pretty clear on all the restrictions, stop words, and so on. Yes, sometimes the system makes mistakes, but sometimes you might find yourself using one extra word, which can cause a video to be downgraded.  

Avoid copyright infringement, using unreliable content sources, and violating the platform’s community guidelines and you’ll be fine.


You can learn more about all of this directly in YouTube’s FAQ, which is constantly being updated. We just want to point you in the right direction and tell you that the platform has changed the lives of thousands of people around the world, and you can be a part of that miracle!  

Good luck!
