    By enabling monetization on your YT channel perhaps?

    Should be an easy tutorial on Youtube.

    Try typing "enabling monetization on a YT channel." into the search bar on YT

    yeah i realize that much. any tips or details though? is it adsense? adsense has always been a pain and never worth it everytime i've use it in the way past (not youtube).

    Sign up with an affiliate network like Clickbank and choose
    a product in the niche that your video is about.
    Cloak the affiliate link with an URL shortener and then put
    the link in your Youtube description section at the top so that
    persons who view your video will click on the link. You
    can also put a call to action in the annotation section telling
    persons to click on the link in the description section.

    You could sell a link in the description to someone, put adsense on it or even sell the channel.... or try and monetize it yourself... it depends how many views per day it is getting now and comments etc.

    the views came completely organically. the video is actually content that has advertising for a certain on the way out social network that was never uploaded to youtube. its an interviewish kind of video with a rapper with a "viral" esque title.... I just focused the title on one of the events in the 5 minute long video.

    You could place ads over your own video, and link them back to a CPA offer, landing page, etc.

    Adsense would be probably most suitable in this case. You have more videos in channel?

    There is always several ways you can monetize. It really just depends on what you want to do. Are you serious about generating a business for yourself, or are you just looking for some extra pocket change. If you are looking for business, either offer them something free that you create and send them to an opt-in page to download your free pdf. Or you can to affiliate marketing, sell your own product directly and have them opt in - good buyer list. You could send them to a facebook page where you add value there - Almost the same as sending them to an opt-in page where you can add value except less intrusive and they can learn from you and the others. Anything that Adds value to them, is where you want to set your eyes on!

    yes i have more videos on the channel.

    and yeah... i'm trying to build this web idea that i have from the ground up, starting with social media. so i think i'm going to have a call to action to have them like a fb page.

    Link back to a landing page then fill up your autoresponder with CPA/affiliate offers, rinse and repeat...

    Question: How does it work with adsense.... Do they only allow one adsense account per person? Meaning, How do I set up monetization if I have multiple youtube accounts for different niches? Is it possible to set up one adsense account across multiple youtube accounts?

    Dude, 200K views have been and gone.
    The big question is... "what kind of views will you get on a regular basis going forward".
    You also have to think about the kind of people who will watching your video.
    Maybe you could sell adspace to other businesses targeting your traffic.
    This kind of thing.
    Good luck.
