Decoder: 5 Ways To Monetize A YouTube Channel In Botswana

Although Botswana-based YouTubers do not have access to the YouTube Partner Program (YPP), which allows them to take advantage of the platform's revenue split program, content creators can still monetise their YouTube content in several other ways.

On today's episode of Decoder, we will be looking at some of these methods and how creators can take advantage of them.

Affiliate Marketing

Partner with companies and promote their products or services in your videos. You can include affiliate links in your video descriptions. You earn a commission for each sale generated through your affiliate links. Choose products or services that are relevant to your content and audience.

Sponsored Content

Collaborate with brands and create sponsored content. Companies may pay you to feature their products or services in your videos. Ensure that your sponsorships align with your channel’s niche and resonate with your viewers.

Merchandise and Merch Stores

Create your own merchandise, such as t-shirts, mugs, or other branded items, and promote them to your audience. You can set up an online store, using platforms like Teespring or Printful, and link to it in your video descriptions.

Patreon and Crowdfunding

Platforms like Patreon allow your viewers to support you by pledging a monthly subscription in exchange for exclusive content, perks, or access. You can offer behind-the-scenes content, early access, or personalized interactions with your top supporters.

Online Courses

Do you post tutorials and how-to videos on YouTube? If your audience loves them, why not build a video course around your channel’s niche? Walk your viewers through the finer points of starting an online business, investing in stocks, fixing cars – anything at all.

But before you start building a course, make sure your audience wants one. They should care about the topic while also believing your lessons will solve a problem in their lives.

Start building your course by writing down the questions people always ask you, plus the answers. That will give you a rough content outline that you can turn into chapters, lessons, and quizzes.
