YouTube launched YouTube Partner Program in India. This program will enable all original video content creators to become a content partner with YouTube and monetize their work on YouTube through advertising. The program will be open to all Indian content creators who make original, high-quality videos on a regular basis and use YouTube to distribute their content online.

The program is YouTube’s way of sharing advertising revenue with its most popular and successful video creators. Once a video creator has been accepted to the Partner Program, ads start appearing overlaid or next to their videos. YouTube then splits the revenue generated by those ads with the partner, with the majority of the share going to the Partner. “YouTube has been a great platform for Indian content as demonstrated by the successes of the Indian Premier League and our Bollywood studio partners. Today we are opening up that very same platform to all media companies and original video content creators in India to help them monetize their content on YouTube platform,” says David Macdonald, Head of YouTube Content Operations, Asia Pacific.

The partner program has a strong community of over 20,000 content creators across the globe, with hundreds of partners making more than $100,000 per year and thousands of partners make more than $1,000 per month.
