How to Use Copyrighted Music on Youtube @getlickd

Download Music for YouTube videos – Looking to use chart music in your YouTube videos without getting stung with copyright issues? Asking yourself – How to Use Copyrighted Music on Youtube Legally? Then LICKD might a a solution for you. LICKD helps you license popular songs that maybe in the charts of trending and put then into your videos for a small fee without any major issues from the YouTube Bots.

TRY LICKd – https://lickd.grsm.io/alanspicer5715
Lickd is a digital platform helping YouTube content creators legally use the music they love. We provide commercial music from real labels for licensing in YouTube videos without the fear of a Creator losing their ad revenue to a Copyright Claim.
How can I legally use copyrighted music on YouTube? – When you get a third party content claim YouTube suggest you do one of the following:

  • Acknowledge it. If you don’t mind the ads, you don’t have to do anything.
  • Remove or swap the music. *
  • Share revenue. If you’re a partner you can share revenues for song covers.
  • Dispute the claim if you believe you have the right to use the music.

* In 2019, YouTube added new features to make it easier for creators to resolve the claims. In particular, YouTube configured their post claim tools – Add or Replace a Song, Remove a Song, and Trimming – to automatically release claims on some of the cases.
The best option is to secure the permission of the copyright owner to use their music on YouTube and to have the owner retract the claim. This may be free (as with Creative Commons or Public Domain music) or you may need to pay a licensing fee.
Getting the permission (or the license) may be easy or hard depending on what kind of music you’d like to use.
If you are after a popular commercial song this usually involves getting in touch with the publisher and working out a deal. As you can imagine, the licensing fees in this case may be quite substantial.

How To Increase Your CPM Adsense Earnings

How to increase your adsense cpm ads rate and earn more money on YouTube – YouTube adverts can earn you a little extra money on the side, but did you know it can be affected by what you talk about, how many adverts you show and what niche you are in?!

How To Improve YouTube CPM Rate and Make More Money on YouTube Adsense

1 – Evaluate your existing videos – Dive into your channel analytics and look at what currently gets you your best CPM (cost per thousand views). This will help you understand what topics on youtube channel make you the best money and attract the best adverts. You can then double down on those topics, making more of them to boost overall CPM income.
2 – Make Longer Videos – You can boost your video CPM by adding more adverts into longer videos. Videos over 10 minutes long on YouTube can have adverts at the start, the end and as many as you want in the middle called “mid-rolls”. These can help multiply the money you can make from a single video. Imagine you get $5 per 1000 views for 1 advert and you add 4 more, that is 5x$5 so $25 per 1000 views, a huge jump in CPM rate.

3 – Difference Niches Have Different CPM Rates – This is a lesson I learnt myself the hard way. You could have an entertainment channel with a broad audience getting millions of views but if your niche is not advertiser friendly, or is too broad it might have a hugely negative effect on the overall CPM of your content. However, if you target set niches you can boost your income. Business, Money, Entrepreneurship, Real Estate and other “high end” niches attract higher paid adverts and therefore higher CPMs. Kids content, pranks, jokes, etc offer a wider reach but normally means easier to buy ads against as there are so many people making that content and less valuable transactions connected to it.
4 – Stop Swearing! – Yes this myth is true! YouTube will listen and transcribe your content and there is statistics that show your channel and video income can and will be negatively affected by cussing/swearing. When advertisers select what channel “buckets” they want to spend money on, you swearing might make you “less desirable” vs someone who has identical content with more family friendly language in their videos.
5 – Make Money Blogging – If you have your content why not blog those videos onto a website and link that to adsense to maximise the income. I have 500ish videos on my channel and over time I have been slowly adding them to my website blog. This can help build search traffic, drive more people to the video and your channel but also gives you a chance to serve more adverts to the viewers. This means not only can you get in-video adverts but banner ads as well.

How To Make Money on YouTube without Adsense (7 EASY Ways to Passive Income)

Make money online without YouTube adverts – How much money can YouTubers earn without adsense? There are many ways you can make money online via YouTube and that doesn’t need to be the partnership program. I use these methods to work full time as a consultant within the YouTube space but these can be used for your business too.

0:37 – Make Money Online with Product Reviews – Find something you have in your home or you was going to buy anyway wand review it in a video. Sign up for the Amazon Affiliate program and add the link to the product into your video or social media caption/post. The more videos/posts you have the more links people can find and has a 7-28 days cookie to track user behaviour and sales.
1:22 – Make Passive Income Online with Affiliate Marketing (Reviewing Services) – This is like reviewing a product but more of a direct company connection rather than a product on Amazon. I have connections with Rev for Subtitles, PlaceIt for YouTube Graphics, TubeBuddy for YouTube Ranking and others but when you click on my links I am given credit and will make a small fee. You can do the same for almost ANY business these days.
2:20 – Make Money Online with Livestream Donations – YouTube offered Superchat donations to all its YouTube Partnership Program members but you can also do this without being YouTube Monetized. You can accept donations via Venmo, Paypal.me links and integrations with software such as Streamlabs or Streamlabs by OBS.
3:03 – Make Money Online with Patreon Crowdfunding – Patreon is a crowd funding membership site that allows you to offer perks and benefits for members to donate to you monthly. This is like YouTube Memberships but with a 3rd party website that doesn’t take a large slice of the income, and doesn’t need 30K+ subs for a normal creator to setup.
4:25 – Make Money Online with Digital Downloads – If you have the skill to make something you can resell this could be a great way to pour some time into doing and then set a reasonable price to make a rolling passive income. For example eBooks, template packs, graphic works or in my case maybe a YouTube Branding Starter Kit. Other creators take this a step further and make online courses and mentor programs for a monthly fee for example Roberto Blake – https://www.YouTube.com/RobertoBlake2
5:37 – Generate Business Leads with YouTube – if you can create content that set you up as an expert in your niche you can then leverage that for business leads, sales and maybe ongoing income. I make a large percentage of my personal income from this method and can help grow a business with a stable foundation.
6:58 – Make Money on YouTube with Merchandise – TShirts, Hoodies, Teddy Bears, mugs and more – all through fulfillment providers like TeeSpring or SpreadShirt – https://www.AlanSpicer.com/shop
