In a discussion with Capital Campus, she shared afew ways Kenyan youth grappling with unemployment can hustle their way to a better bank account with YouTube.  Here are three steps anyone can take to make a living off of YouTube:

1.Create a YouTube channel

Much like other channels online, creating an interesting channel that delivers unique content is essential in increasing subscriptions for Joanna’s account. Consistency and creativity is also fundamental to the success of the channel. Joanna began her channel in late 2016, and began posting religiously in January. Now, about 9 months later, the beauty enthusiast now commands over 5,000 subscribers.

2.Monetize Your Channel

This process is very technical and often confuses many YouTubers. First, enable monetization on your channel, as you upload videos online. The basics of it all is that one can monitize their channel by creating an AdSense account and linking it to their YouTube channel. This will make it easier to keep track of the earnings one makes from YouTube advertisements.One should remain realistics as Joanna pointed out,  ” it is difficult to predict the payment one can receive from YouTube.”
