YouTube Is a video platform own by google. Millions of people visits YouTube all the time to find interesting music and entertainment videos themselves. In these videos, YouTube place ad on them and when audience clicks on the ad you make some amount of money, when accumulated you get paid directly to you desired account
Music distribution is a process music get distributed to music listeners or your fans by your record label usually your third party business partners, but today its now Digital music distribution stores and companies where artist can directly upload their music on digital music distribution sites directly to their fans and keep 100% of their income such Digital music distribution stores are Apple music, Spotify, deezer, amazon music, YouTube music, Pandora, tidal, iTunes music, yandex, google play, etc.
For example In Nigeria and some other, its not easy to access or to upload your music directly to those music stores but Digital music distribution companies help you place your songs there with a certain commission, help you collect the royalties, then you make money and sent to your account
This is when a customer pay a subscription to listen to you music and when the subscription finish they subscriber again and then you make more money. This is what music distribution stores are doing, they help you collect the royalties and send to you and they make their commission; if you can do it yourself is all good and you keep 100% of all your money.
These are some of the new income source for musicians to make money. Make money today by getting your music out to music store directly or with a music distribution companies and make money from you music today.
