    Hey guys,

    My channel has been averaging 1-5 million views in the last few months, but recently exploded with so awesome traffic (currently over 15 M views per month). The channel is partnered so it's making money from ads but not as much as I want it to. I figure with 15 M views per month the channel has to be able to make more $ than it is. The niche is pranks. Looking for someone to help with CPA offers or suggest something that people watching prank videos would buy.

    Thanks

    Use direct advertisers/sponsors, you can contact directly to any business/site related to your niche

    As Kriwil stated get with that amount of viewers you should have no issues whatsoever in getting advertisers/sponsors. If I were in your position I would begin to build a brand name around those pranks. Then begin to put that on t shirts hats and everything else you can imagine. Get a fiverr gig make a logo make a little intro vid and plaster that logo on t shirts and pitch them at the beginning or end of every episode. Offer a few t shirt giveaways and get people to want to buy them. If you G you will find some white label drop shippers that will do the majority of the work for you. Good luck!

    Despite ads looking like the only meaningful solution adding description links to music or CPA products seems to work wonders for keepsake.

    The real money comes with proper targeting, but you can always direct traffic to a fanpage rather than direct linking.

    You should really consider cross linking through different social media. Just add annotations on your videos about your Snapchat (where you could also upload pranks), Instagram, Twitter, Facebook. You've already got YouTube sorted so people will follow Facebook and Twitter. Eventually Instagram. Once you've got a brand established, just monetize using merchandise + CPA + shout outs and what not.

    To monetize videos on Youtube you are supposed to be the copyright holder of the content unless the content belongs in the public domain. If and when Youtube finds out that you are making money from content which you do not own the rights to, they will remove the advertising on that content, they will give your account a strike, and if you get enough strikes they will close down your account and you will permanently lose your channel and all the uploaded content on it.

    Just saying.

    i would go to amazon partners aff program and generate a "prank store" that i can pimp on each video, telling them "the stuff from this prank can be found here"
    ppl that loves pranks will find interest in such products, if not, you still drop your amazon cookies...

    Just get direct sponsors, advertise their brand in the video.

    This is what I was going to write too. You can also try dropshipping from other places as well. Additionally, I think some well designed Teespring campaign might fit your audience nicely too, so it might be worth exploring. Record an outro promoting your shop and add it at the end of each video.

    Keep in mind that if you are really reuploading other people's videos, sooner or later the big G will catch you and delete your account, so I guess you should treat this as a churn and burn enterprise and you should try to cram as much monetization into it while it lasts.
