Ways To Make Money On Youtube Without Making Videos?

  1. Compilation video: As the name says, we want to make one video by compiling or mixing multiple videos that are getting a lot of views or which are already viral.

Here is a step-by-step procedure:

  • Select a niche: In simple language, the niche is an interest that differs from person to person. Example Wildlife, Sports, Motivation, Business, Healthcare tips, Vines, etc

 But the question is how to select a niche? You can do it by just checking the past searches that you have done on Google and YouTube.

  • Select a top trending video in your niche (Only Creative Common License):

You can just find this video by searching for a particular keyword. But here is a twist, after a search result you can filter all results just by putting a filter of “Creative common Licence”. Using this you will get a video that has permission to reupload. (Make sure only select creative commons license video) otherwise, you can see a copyright strike on your channel.

  • Editing: After selecting a video you want to mix or compile the best and top videos of your niche.

With some SEO optimization and trending content, you will see an engagement on your channel and you can easily hit the mark of 1000 subscribers and 4000 Hours of Watch time which is the criteria of youtube Monetisation.

After downloading a video from Amazon or a product website you can just present this product by giving your voice-over and this process is 100% legal because you are using a product video for a promotion, so you will not see any copyright penalty.

If your audience gets influenced by your way of explanation, then they will buy a product from your Amazon affiliate link.
