    Hi there,

    I have a Youtube channel with about 250k views and 300+ subscribers.

    I was just wondering if you guys have any suggestions regarding monetization. I'm sure I could maybe throw around some affiliate links. But not sure if I should have them link to my website, or directly to the affiliate URL, etc. But my main concern is trying to figure out what type of niche to choose for the affiliate links. The channel revolves around police incidents. It feels like there would be nothing that is fitting. But I guess then I would just pick something random?

    Aside from promoting your affiliate links, products or sites, have you considered monetizing your videos with AdSense?

    lol probably has multiple accounts for trolling :p I do already have Adsense being utilized. It only generates about a $1 a day though.. at most maybe a few dollars. I'm thiinking about just going with the affiliate links, but it's hard to decide what type of affiliate program to go with.

    The simplest way to make money through YouTube involves partnering directly with YouTube and effectively splitting the money that is made off of ads.

    I'm already a partner :p But just as an example, the last 7 days I've only gotten 14,000 views, 30,000 minutes watched, and $10. I just figure maybe it's not a lot of traffic, but with that much I might atleast be able to generate a sale here and there. Maybe I'll try out the Web Hosting affiliate programs as I know they can usually pay $100 per sale. It's just weird for me trying to find a niche since the videos are all about police incidents.
