How to Make Money on YouTube

In the past year, presidential parodies and clever online-only ads became viral sensations; "annoying" but lovable fruits and unassuming Alabamans transformed uncomfortable situations into triumphant social memes; and talented partners have drawn huge audiences with channels that showed people how to crochet flowers, apply the perfect lipstick -- and sometimes just how to have fun.
YouTube currently has more than 15,000 partners worldwide -- many of whom are making enough money doing what they love to buy a new house, or even make a career out of their videos. In fact, the number of partners making over $1,000 a month is up 300 percent since the beginning of 2010 and YouTube now has hundreds of partners making six figures a year. (See last month's column on how to become a YouTube partner.)
One of the partners making six figures a year is Michael Buckley, writer, producer, and star of entertainment news show "What the Buck?" For Buckley's backstory, read "YouTube Videos Pull In Real Money" by Brian Stelter, which appeared Dec. 10, 2008, in The New York Times. One of his recent videos is "OMG! LADY GAGA KILLED OSAMA?!!!! - A "Superstar" Dance For Our Troops! :-)."
