5 Surprising Ways to Make YouTube Videos Without Talking Or Showing Your Face
With number 4 and 5 I made $2000 for 4 hours of work a month
Sounds like a scam? I thought so too. That’s because numerous YouTube gurus tell you how to earn ten thousands without making videos.
You won’t. Most likely.
But these tips might lead to a valuable side income. I’ve earned over $2000 in total this way. For as little as 4 hours of work per month. There’s a catch though. I’ll tell you upfront.
It’s hard to get in
What’s most frustrating about YouTube as a platform to make money on? Without a doubt, it’s the partner program's requirement. 4000 watch hours within 12 months and 1000 subscribers, this is the base requirement to even be considered for the YouTube Partner Program. Then, your channel will get reviewed by YouTube. If you made it that far, you can finally monetize your content.
To be honest, that hurdle seems unattainable at first. And for many, it is. Because it takes time and patience. For me, getting my first channel monetized took about a year. A year of regularly uploading content 3–4 times a week, that is.
It pays off, literally
From then on, my videos made money through ads. After a year of uploading, I already had a decent follower base and view count. This meant earning about $150–200 per month. It’s not much by any standard. But it’s just the beginning. And it is not bad for the time I put into the content creation itself. Around 4 hours per month. I usually create multiple videos in 1–2 hours a couple of days each month.
Let’s take a look at 5 ways to do that.
