How can I get started?
First of all, you must to have an Email account not just any E-mail account, you have to have a Google e-mail account which is popularly called “Gmail”.

BELOW ARE WAYS YOU CAN MONETIZE YOUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL
1. Google AdSense
As we all know, Google which is one of the biggest search engines owns both AdSense and YouTube making it the first thing to consider using when you setup your channel. Google uses AdSense to display ads on your website which lets you earn when people clicks on it. Same goes for YouTube. For a website with a decent amount of traffic (viewers) Google will display ads on your website but with YouTube, you have to get up to 1,000 subscribers or 4,000 views for ads to display on your channel. Trust me with the right video and proper SEO you can get those even in a week.
Make descent videos and captions that will capture the interest of your viewers.
After making a video (by then you must have created your YouTube channel), use captivating captions such as “Omg see how this mixture transformed my skin”
“If you watch this video you’ll never remain the same,”
2. Affiliate Marketing
This is another great way of making money on YouTube.
I would say making money from affiliate marketing on YouTube does not work with every niche and few niches that work well with affiliate marketing includes technology, fitness, fashion, health etc. As simple as you making a video of yourself talk in front of a camera and putting an affiliate link of let’s say the microphone you using or even the shirt you wearing to your viewers can purchase them if they are interested in it.
This requires you to know in-depth of whatsoever you into. For example, if you into the technology niche, you have got to know much about the item you making a video on and state how it has helped you.
HOW IT WORKS
The first thing you should do is signup for good affiliate programs such as Amazon Associates, CJ, JVZoo etc. then make a video of the item you want to talk about and then put your affiliate links to the product on your description so when your viewers watch the video and want to purchase the item they can easily do so using the link you have provided.
And when each product is purchased by your viewers, you’ll be paid or credited instantly.
3. Your Own Product
As a newbie, you may not want to venture into this very quickly as it takes time, experience and lots of hard work to be about to create your own product that works so it’s best to stick to AdSense and Affiliate Marketing.
With that said the amount of money you can earn when selling your own product cannot be compared to any other. AdSense pay a fraction of what they get from advertisers and the maximum affiliate marketing can generate is 4-5% of the money sold on any item but when it comes to owning your own product which can be as simple as writing an EBook and selling it online you make 100% of the profit.
No matter whether you a newbie or not you should consider creating your own product.
4. Use Brand Sponsorship
Brand Sponsorship is growing on YouTube as big brands are searching for YouTubers to help them market their products through advertising to their subscribers and they pay huge amount of money for that.
Not every can get a sponsorship deal on YouTube but for that to happen you must be an influencer with lots of subscribers and views to be able to land a sponsorship deal.
Forn you to get a brand sponsorship form big brands you have to make innovative, and informational videos, which will in return fetch you huge subscribers and more views and trust me when this happens, brands will start contacting you for advertisement and sponsorships.
