you get 5000 view and 100 likes and some comments
We are the first to recognize that this could be a blow to some of our smaller or brand new creators, but let’s just take a step back to look at the big picture. There is an increasing number of abuse coming from people on YouTube who are gaming the system, stealing people’s content, and profiting from it. Ultimately, this new rule has been put in place to combat that, and we stand with YouTube in thinking that it will help.
If you currently have less than 5,000 lifetime views, fear not. First off, the amount of ad revenue generated from 5,000 views is not really worth worrying about. Secondly, this is a good opportunity to focus on making quality content that you truly love. A challenge we see a lot of smaller or new content creators facing is that they see YouTube as a place to “get rich quick” – then when that doesn’t come they get discouraged or quit. This is why we stress over and over to make content that you love, do this for the right reasons, and growth (and the money that comes with it) will eventually follow.
It’s also worth noting that until further notice, we will be unable to accept channels with less than 5,000 lifetime views into the Fullscreen Creator Network. We’re currently working on additional tools and solutions for smaller channels to help hit that 5,000 view mark. We’ll be sure to update along the way.
