This new feature has multiple benefits that prove very useful for the YouTube creator. YouTube is giving creators this option to earn additional revenue and make the best out of their channels. This article will help you find out everything you need to know about the YouTube sponsorship button.
(What Is the YouTube Sponsor Button?)
The YouTube sponsorship button is only available to YouTube creators who meet the requirement.
YouTube started out by testing this feature with gaming channels which seems to have been highly successful due to the fact that YouTube has also extended this feature to non-gaming channels as well.
The sponsorship button allows fans of popular YouTube personalities to subscribe as channel members for a monthly fee of $5 giving them access to exclusive content put out by the creator they’re sponsoring.
One of the perks for the YouTube sponsors they can purchase public badges and Emoji. As a sponsor, the iconic badge will separate you from the rest in the commenting section. Aside from access to perks like exclusive content put out by the creator if it is available, sponsors get discounted rates on tickets to paid events, free training and even meeting your favorite YouTube creator in person.
HOW DO YOU GET THE YOUTUBE SPONSOR BUTTON ON YOUR CHANNEL?
If you are looking to attain sponsorship on YouTube, the safest way is to follow the YouTube guidelines.
This feature however has some minimum requirements before you can enable that sponsor button.
• Your channel must have at least 30,000 subscribers. Although some channels have less subscribers but have their sponsor button enabled. This is due to the fact that YouTube worked with them in their beta testing of this feature before introducing it to the mainstream.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF GETTING SPONSORED?
For starters, because it is a good investment. Once you enable your YouTube sponsorship button, it allows your followers to support your channel at a monthly fee of $5 which is a good source of passive income.
So aside from the money you might be making running affiliate products or google ads, you will also set up another stream of income through this new feature which will also help you turn in profits.
You will also gain the opportunity to create a community with your viewers. It will also give you an opportunity to connect deeper with your members through the perks and bonus material required of you to set up for your audience and as you interact with them on a deeper level, you will gain insight on what content is relevant to put on your channel which will also generate traffic to your channel.
Once the would-be members have followed these steps, they will be welcomed with an announcement of the completion of your transaction. And when they have become an active member, they will be charged
automatically at the start of the billing cycle and the money starts flowing to your account.
HOW MUCH DOES THE CREATOR GET PAID?
Once you have managed to get your channel sponsored how much you really stand to make is ultimately up to you and the content you put forth. What I can tell you however is how the numbers work.
According to YouTube, creators get 70% royalty for receiving the sponsorship. Which means from every membership payment you get from a sponsor, you stand to make $3.5 dollars, which is $35 from 10 sponsors, $350 from 100 sponsors and $3500 from 1000 sponsors and so on and so forth. Not a bad flow of passive income at all.
1000 sponsors =$3500 🙂
