YouTube Shorts Creators Could Soon Be In Business Through Ad Revenue

YouTube Shorts Creators Could Soon Be In Business Through Ad Revenue ...

YouTube has announced that YouTubers who create short films on the platform may now qualify for the YouTube Partner Program and thus earn ad revenue.

Shorts-focused artists may apply to the YouTube Partner Program starting in early 2023, by meeting a requirement of at least 1,000 subscribers and 10 million Shorts views over 90 days. These new partners will benefit from all the options available, including advertising on long-form and fan funding.

YouTube Short creators will retain 45 percent of the revenue owed to them from the overall amount allocated to them. The revenue share remains the same, whether or not they use music.

YouTube will add new levels of the YouTube Partner Program with lower requirements, including earlier access to Fan Funding features like Super Thanks, Super Chat, Super Stickers, and Channel Memberships in 2023.

This is good news for new YouTubers, especially those who prefer short TikTok-like videos to long-form video content. Perhaps this will speed up TikTok's growth and make YouTube a stronger competitor.
