This is the next post in our popular Make Money On YouTube series where we talk about all the different ways you can monetize and earn money with YouTube videos.
This recipe will focus on Halloween videos, specifically Halloween music videos that you can easily make and monetize. Keep reading!
Why make Halloween videos?
Many people around October will turn to YouTube to find the perfect music background for various activities related to Halloween.
Or they may simply be in the mood for some spooky Halloween music.
This is where your videos will help them to get the background music ambiance they want. At the same time this will help you to make a bit of money.
Despite the abundance of great music streaming services, YouTube is one of the top choices when it comes to music, so the audience is truly immense.
How can you make money with Halloween videos on YouTube?
There are two ways you can make money with Halloween videos and it depends on your target audience:
1. Monetize your videos with YouTube’s Partner Program
Here we will target the people who come to YouTube to listen to Halloween music.
This is how it works:
You make Halloween music videos, people listen to the music in your videos, you get paid through the ads that appear in the videos.
In order to monetize your videos you must join YouTube Partner program first.
Once you are accepted into the program YouTube will start placing the ads in qualifying videos. You get paid when your viewers watch the ads.

To sum it up quickly, you will need 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 watch hours, in order to be considered.
2. Earn money through TunePocket affiliate program
If you’re not a YouTube partner yet, there is still a way you can earn. You just need to target a different audience.
Instead of making the videos for people who come to YouTube to simply listen to Halloween music, you target other creators. That is, people who make videos or podcasts.
First of all, join TunePocket affiliate program. It’s super fast to join, all you need is to fill a quick form and you’re in.
Then, make the same Halloween music videos but add a simple message:
“If you want to use this music in your videos, sign up for TunePocket and get unlimited access to great Halloween music”.
Use your affiliate link to direct YouTubers to TunePocket. If they sign up for any of our royalty free music plans, you will be paid a referral commission.
PRO TIP: Use this approach as the stepping stone to get 1,000 subs and 4,000 watch hours for the Partner program.
Why Halloween music videos are great for monetization?
The more people watch the ads in your videos, the more you earn. It’s that simple.
You can make any kinds of videos that comply with YouTube advertisement guidelines but if you want to earn more, focus on longer videos that allow YouTube to place ads not only at the beginning but also in the middle of the video.
To take advantage of the extra ads, you must make sure people watch your videos to the end.
What videos fit these requirements?
Yup, you guessed it right – the music videos!
And when we make videos around October, Halloween music videos will get a massive search traffic boost.
How to easily make Halloween music videos?
To make a basic Halloween music video you will need:
1. Halloween stock video footage, preferably a loop, so you can easily extend it to the desired length. Alternatively, use Halloween themed stock photos and animate them to look like a slideshow.
Can I use any music?
If you browse the Web, there are plenty of free Halloween tunes around.
However, when you monetize, pay close attention to the fine print. Often free music is not available for commercial use (and monetizing your channel is commercial use).
As a rule of thumb, if you want to monetize your video, it is recommended to properly license any music you use.
What if I don’t clear my music for commercial use?
The most likely outcome is getting a copyright claim on your video.
When you get the claim, YouTube will disable monetization on the claimed video. Ouch.. that’s not what you want, right?
What music works best for Halloween videos?
Halloween music ranges from fun and spooky, quirky whimsical tunes, to creepy horror soundtracks.
Here are some examples from our extensive collection of royalty free Halloween music.
