Surely readers you may not have noticed this, but did you know YouTube’s Partner Program is great way to earn and develop an online presence via Google-owned video-streaming. Ateeya makes a living from it.



Well guess what YouTube just announced that its expanding the eligibility into this  program across twenty countries that it’s available in, essientially it’s not just those with the super popular videos who are invited to join the scheme. Everyone can now join that is of course if you live in the following countries!

Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom and the United States.

“We’re excited to provide more creators with the opportunity to become partners and have access to programs and YT 220x151 Now everyone can make money from their videos, as YouTube opens its Partner Program to allresources to help them be successful on YouTube,” said YouTube in the announcement. “These programs will be tailored to partners based on their specific needs. We also recognize that custom thumbnails and banners are sought-after features by many creators. We are working on making these and other features available to more newly-made partners over time, like we have done with long uploads and monetization.”

So, it hasn’t entirely opened its doors yet…certain customizations are still being reserved for those with one foot firmly in the ‘popular creator’ camp for the time-being.

Previously, the program was only open to producers of the most popular video content, who could gain additional privileges and choose to run advertising on their videos in return for a share of the spoils. But now it’s open to anyone who’s up for making some dollars from their finely crafted videos. Now you can create those cute videos of your pets singing and earn some money while at it? Cool stuff!
