Are you a YouTuber?
Are you making money off YouTube?
Making money from YouTube is a topic that has received an incredible amount of hype over the years.
When it comes to generating YouTube income, we mean making enough money to earn you a living and probably fulfill your dream of working as a video producer, full-time.
YouTube is damn rich and attracts Billions of dollars in YouTube advertising revenue each year and so what piece of the pie do creators get?
Changes in YouTube requirements have compelled most content creators to enter into partnerships with Multi-Channel Networks (MCN) in order to quickly monetize their videos as well as avoid content ID problems.
After all, it’s the creators’ content that attracts advertisers to the site and so increases revenue.

YouTube Multi-Channel Networks
Multi-Channel Networks provide content creators with many services.
From linking them with brands and negotiating deals for them, offering production assistance to providing a support system for creating video content, marketing and distributing it, MCN YouTube definitely plays a major role in generating revenue for content creators.
In exchange, MCN partnership asks for compensation which may vary-some will ask to own the copyrights of the content creator, others ask for a negotiated percentage of the total revenue sharing generated from your content, while others may ask for the best YouTube collaborations with the creator’s artists.
While thousands of YouTubers are making enough MCN money to lure them into making a full-time career out of YouTube, there’s an overwhelming majority who see negligible revenue return.
However, it’s worth noting that realizing worthwhile weekly or monthly ad YouTube revenue share takes hundreds of thousands of views and millions of them to sustainably turn you into a full-time partner.
Typical Revenue Share Earned by YouTube Partners
YouTube has indicated that the Partner Program has over one million channels (up from 30,000 in 2011).
YouTube estimated that it takes home a 45/55 share of all the ad revenue. In short, YouTube takes a 45% slice of the total advertising revenue. Apparently, there are no official figures available to validate this.
With YouTube MCN contracts, video content creators should be prepared to deal with approval issues in the event that they violate any copyright agreements or publish material that is deemed racist, abusive, or sexually explicit.
Google may immediately take down this kind of content hence affecting their good standing if they continually break the law and their rules.
Of course, internet video consumption is fast growing in popularity and whoever plans to join a YouTube MCN should consult a legal attorney before entering into any sort of agreement with MCNs. Ensure you fully understand your commitment to the multi-channel network and the value they in return will add to your efforts.

Grounds in Which a Lawyer Can Help You Cancel the Contract
While the offers in a YouTube contract may seem attractive, there is a bitter truth attached to it: such contracts could also bind you for several years. You may feel there is no way out. However, the good news is that you can take help from me.
If you come across a situation when you just feel like breaking the contract, you can do so based on the following grounds:
- You find out that the company that you have signed the contract with has made a false statement within the contract so it can easily induce you for signing the contract.
- The contract comprises of one-sided, harsh terms.
These are only two terms that are commonly noticed and could be considered for the legal cancellation of the contract. Since every YouTube MCN case is different, it’s examined differently.
