Many fellow forum members are having less than 1000 subscribers and/or less than 4000 hours watch time on their channels, meaning that by the new YouTube Partner Program (YPP) requirements, they will be automatically kicked out of the program on 20th of February 2018. While it is frustrating to know that the nice side feature of creating with receiving something in return with real money, on YouTube will no longer be available, first thing to do is DON'T PANIC. Don't go for sub4sub services, ask for subscribers random strangers, walk around on a crowded square holding a banner with your channel name, begging for help or similar desperate measures. Even if you don't reach the payment thresholds don't delete your YouTube and AdSense accounts in a protest or frustration. Welcome to pre-2012 YouTube, where only selected few channels had access to the YouTube's Partner Program. The rest were uploading videos mostly for the fun of it, but some of creators were still able to monetize their videos with earnings going to their AdSense accounts. Here are several methods: The easiest and fastest, yet still free and which still stays inside your Google Account method is to create a blog on blogger.com (or blogspot.com). It takes only a few minutes to set up everything and once done you can write articles and embed your videos on them. Setting the monetizaton of the blog is as easy as setting the monetization of YouTube account (still inside Google) and you will start earning as soon as people start visiting your blog. As a nice side features, your videos are still on YouTube and every view and subscriber gained from the blog will go towards reaching the new YPP thresholds, which makes it a win-win situation for you. If you don't know what to write as blogger articles, just copy a paste your video description. Put links to your blog on your YouTube channel and put link to your YouTube channel (or subscribe box) on your blog, so people will know it's the same entity. Another still free method to monetize your videos is to embed them on another free blog platform like wordpress.com - there is free lifetime membership option, it is just slightly harder to set up, maintain and embed your videos and set-up the monetization, since it's not inside your Google account anymore, but it's still not hard either. You hate blogs? No problem. There are many free hosting websites like 000webhost.com (first thing that popped in Google). Create a website there and embed your videos and set monetization for the site. While this is hard to do and set-up (you will need some HTML knowledge), you still will be able to monetize your videos. Once you start getting visitors and views to your video pages (hosted outside YouTube) you will start getting ad impressions, meaning that you will get closer and closer to your payment threshold and to the requirements to get back to YPP.

I just want to help the disappointed by YouTube people and tell them that being kicked out of YPP is not the end of their YouTube journey.
