How to Make Money on YouTube WITHOUT Making Videos Yourself From Scratch


okay so as you can see it's about 1.4 to
1.1 million views per day so let's just
go on the low end
1.1 million views and we multiply that
by 365 days per year
and we multiply that by just
0.1 of a cent per view that gives us
almost just a bit over 400 000 per year
we divide that by 12 and that's about 33
000 usd a month which actually is very 
very close to what it says here
between thirteen thousand to two hundred
and thirteen thousand per month
hi everyone in today's video i will show
you how to make
thirty thousand dollars per month by
simply re-uploading
youtube videos i'm also including
complete step-by-step instructions so
make sure you watch this video all the
way through to the end and by the end of
this video you will know
what you need to do to start making
money on youtube without
creating your own videos from scratch hi
everyone my name is greg kononenko if
you're new to my channel i publish
regular videos dedicated to making money
affiliate marketing blogging and traffic
generations so make sure to subscribe
just below this video
and this way you'll get notified
whenever i post my next video thank you
so much and let's get into it
alright so first of all as always i want
to show you
the concept so that you understand the
big picture and how this actually works
then i'm going to break it down step by
step for you give you every single step
or exactly how to implement this method
every day hundreds of millions of people
jump onto youtube
and they type in keywords such as
meditation music for example and
you can see that this kind of videos
meditation music videos
they get a lot of views you can see this
one here 233 million views
20 million views 12 million views this
is a live stream with 5 000 people
watching this right now 7.5 million
3 million views etc so there is huge
for these kind of videos and there are
lots of different related keywords that
actually put in so for example they
might put in meditation music
sleep meditation music for anxiety
meditation music for kids etc
now this is sort of one niche for the
meditation music stuff
there are also relaxation music
okay so a lot of people are looking for
relaxation music relaxation music for
sleep for example
and once they type this in and they see
all of these videos a lot of them will
go ahead and view this
and if we open any of these videos
here in an incognito window you can see
that there is an ad that plays before i
get to see the video
now the owner of this channel so the
person who runs the soothing relaxation
will get paid every time somebody
watches this ad
okay so this is called youtube adsense
or youtube ad revenue and this is how a
lot of these channels make really really
good money from adsense
this here is an example of my personal
earnings with adsense so
over the last 365 days i have made
56 400 us dollars
from youtube ads revenue that's just
from people watching my videos
and um these ads being shown passively
my videos now as you know youtube is
actually my side project
i don't do youtube full-time i've got
other projects that i do
but this is a very very nice amount of
money that youtube just pays me because
people continually watch my content i
only make about five to six videos
per month on average so i don't make
very many videos
so how much do these channels earn well
let's take a look at this channel in a
bit more detail this soothing relaxation
channel and what we can do is take this
code kind of from their url so their
link or their nickname on youtube and we
can head over to
this website that's called socialblade
for socialblade you can actually run so
you can go into this youtube section and
enter youtube username so we just go
like this and enter it in
and that will give us all of their stats
so you can check pretty much anyone's
any channel stats on socialblade and we
can see here that this channel
gets anywhere from 2 to three
million views per day i mean this is
insane two to three million views per
and this particular channel actually
makes anywhere from 26
to 426 000
per year just from people watching the
on their videos and their relaxation and
their meditation videos
i mean this is really really good money
26 grand you can see that the range here
huge between 26 to 426
per month okay that's per month and
uh per year that's anywhere from 300 to
5 million of course this is a massive
massive range
but this is just because social blade
when they do their calculations they
take into account
from the lowest known payout to the
creator to the highest okay so on the
low end
it's about 26 grand a month you know
maybe it's even even a tiny bit lower
but still we're looking at well over 10
grand a month that this channel is most
likely making
now let's take a look at exactly how
they make their videos so let's open up
these 233 million views video
and if we look at it there is
nobody is on camera so there is no one
that actually is
in the video it's just images and
some of them are images some of them are
videos just like that which you can see
here on the screen
okay and if we go into the description
and scroll all the way to the bottom we
can see here that
it actually says that footage and photos
are licensed from
videoblocks now if we go over to
and we open this up you will see that
this is basically a website where you
can get access to
royalty free videos alright so it says
here royalty free
video for creators and you can buy all
of this footage
and you can use it in your videos
storyblocks is a service where you have
to pay a monthly subscription fee but
i'm going to show you
that there are other ways that you can
actually download these videos in these
footage and that is from pexel's video
so you can go to
and choose videos at the top and then we
can start entering our for example
alright so here you can see that if i
type in nature
we get 10.5 000 different videos and if
we preview this video
it's beautiful footage of just forest
and you know there are 10.5
000 of different videos that you can use
pack sales is actually free so you can
all of these videos in your relaxation
videos and you can stitch them all
and you don't have to pay anything you
can even see right here if you scroll
it says free to use now guys i know that
i'm going to get a lot of questions
these kind of videos that are produced
from royalty free content
are allowed to be monetized and look at
this youtube officially
they updated this recently and they've
made it very very clear that yes
you can as long as you've got the right
license okay so for example
here we can see that guidelines for
content you created
it says here that you need to follow
youtube community guidelines and make
sure that you own
all the necessary rights to commercially
use all the visuals created
more specifically just below they're
clarifying it further and it says
can i monetize my video if okay and then
it says i use
royalty-free or creative common comments
and it says yes you can you can monetize
relative free or creative commons
if the license agreement grants you
rights to use it commercially
so as long as you get the
content with proper rights that allows
you to use it on youtube
then you can get monetized and so let's
go back to the search here for and check if the license
allows us to use it or not
so let's open up for example this video
here a beautiful video of
you know stars and mountains and if we
open up this info
here we can see that it's free to use
and no attribution is required so the
license allows us 100
allows us to use it any way we want if
we click this link to learn more about
the license you can see that it's
creative commons
okay so creative commons images giving
credit to the photographer
is not required but appreciated so this
is a creative commons license
and if we go back here to youtube
guidelines it says
creative commons content you can
monetize creative commons content so
there are no problems
at all the next point i would like to
clarify is this one here it contains
music from the youtube audio library
it says you can monetize music from the
youtube audio library so you can
actually go
into the youtube audio library and you
download and reuse the the music that
youtube provides you with
now inside the audio library you will
find thousands and thousands of tracks
that you can use so here we can go by
genre and we can choose ambient which is
the relaxation style and then we choose
apply and you will see
that there are tons and tons of images
that you can use so here i've got
100 per per page and there are many many
many many many
many dozens of pages of different
relaxation tracks
that you can use to overlay on top of
these free videos
so there is no cost for anything if you
want to follow this method
and start reposting re-uploading these
videos onto youtube to create your own
relaxation and meditation channel okay
so let's go through this step-by-step
and i'm going to show you how you can do
this so first of all you want to create
youtube channel so you can just google
that if you don't have a youtube channel
click this first result create youtube
channel and go through all of the
to sign into google and then to actually
create your youtube channel when it
comes to
choosing your youtube channel name it's
a good idea to
put in something into the channel name
that actually
specifies what your channel is about so
you will notice that the most popular
channels here
have got the words relaxation for
example in them it says soothing
relaxing music nova relaxing music sleep
tube for example as well which also
makes it very clear that this is a
relaxing channel so the best thing to do
is to go into youtube and type in the
searches that are related to your niche
whether you go for meditation or
relaxation or some nature videos
and have a look at what kind of names
others have chosen and then give your
channel a similar name so instead of
just naming it for example greg
you might want to name it something like
relax with greg
or meditate with greg or a similar name
that way
it's better for seo so your search
engine optimization within youtube
because your channel name contains a
clue what the
the channel is about and also it's
easier for other people to remember when
they visually scan the different
channels they'll know that your channel
is a dedicated
meditation channel or relaxation channel
step two in the process
is to find some keywords on which you
can make videos
and to do that we can use google keyword
planner tools so you can just google for
that it's completely free to use
and once you're inside google keyword
planner tool
you will need to choose this option
start with keywords so here we can enter
some starting keywords as an example i'm
going to start with relaxation videos
and relaxation music
four locations here make sure that
you've got at least united states and
india selected you can also enter uh
other large countries but this is
usually enough for me to start working
that's where majority of the viewers on
youtube are and if we click get results
that will give us the some of the other
keyword ideas that we can go for all
right so here we've got a bunch of
keywords we've got meditation music
sleep music coming music soft music
relaxing piano music and other ideas
that you would have never thought of
now you've got ideas for how you can
title different videos so whenever you
create and upload a new video
you can give it a slightly different
title because you now know that people
are searching for that here on youtube
so you can create a video on
relaxing piano music then your next
video can be titled relaxing sleep music
your next video can be titled relaxing
spa music etc and you will notice that
that's what the other channels are doing
and you can also get some ideas for
keywords from them as well just by
browsing their videos
you can see that this particular video
is targeting the keyword calming piano
this video is targeting the keyword
beautiful instrumental music so people
will be
entering that into google they will be
saying beautiful
instrumental music see it's actually
coming up as a suggested
keyword so beautiful instrumental music
you can even further break it down by
saying beautiful instrumental music for
beautiful instrumental music violence
beautiful instrumental music for
so you can create videos that have these
in their title and in their description
to increase the chances that your video
is going to get recommended in the
youtube search results
for example if we enter one of them
beautiful instrumental music violin into
youtube search you can see that video
number two that comes up
is from a small channel this is this
channel has only got 14.2
000 subscribers and they made this video
one year ago so
probably when they made this video i
would say that they had almost no
and they're still managing to rank so
that means that there is plenty of
opportunity for
anyone really to start a brand new
channel and to start making money on
youtube by doing this
okay step three is to actually create
the videos so
let's do this step by step first of all
head over to
and then you will want to enter a search
that is related to
the video idea that you're trying to
produce so you can type in things like
waterfalls okay so let's just type in
waterfalls for example
and we will see everything that comes up
just make sure that at the top you
videos like that and then you will get
all of the different
videos that you can use so after that
you'll need to download
several videos so let's download a
couple here okay so here at the bottom
we can see that it is free to use always
make sure that you check
and the license actually allows you to
use it
and some of them may require attribution
so just kind of be aware of this because
if they want attribution you will need
make sure that you mention that in the
uh in your video
that um you're giving attribution to the
now once you've found a video that you
like okay we can see that this one is
about 30 seconds long
we want to download this so here at the
top just go free download
and we can save this as something like
waterfalls one
okay so that's going to be our first
video that we're gonna use so you can
download a bunch of these videos
then we can go and download for example
some nature videos as well so i'm just
going to click download here
and i'm going to call it nature1 and
then you can download a bunch of nature
then you can head over to youtube audio
library and download
some tracks that sound relaxing and
sound like you want to include them so
for example this whispering dream
i can listen to this and if i like it
and i think that this will work for the
i can download this so just click
download i can call it something like
relax music one so let's hit save and
you can do this to a bunch
of these tracks you'll want to make your
video about the same length as the other
videos here on the front page so you can
see that these videos here
are anywhere from seven minutes to three
hours or two and a half hours
so download enough music to fill that up
you can do all of your editing
afterwards in a free
software called hitfilm express just
type that into google
and get the free version of hitfilm
express once you're inside heat film
express click this button here new
and set up your project don't worry
about the duration you can always cut it
shorter afterwards and for frame rate
you want to set at least
30 you can even go with 60 but 30 works
pretty well
make sure that your width and height is
as set as
1920 by 1080 that will give you the
ratio that youtube likes
and then we can click ok hit film
express is pretty easy to use you can of
course watch tutorials there are tons of
tutorials on youtube that are completely
free and the software is free so it's
awesome but basically you need to drop
all of your
clips and music into media and then you
just need to arrange them into a
timeline i'm going to show you quickly
how to do this so you choose media here
on the left hand side so i've got my
files here the nature file waterfalls
file and relaxation music
you should of course if you're trying to
create a longer video you should have a
bunch of them but
just for the to save you time i'm going
to do this with just these three
so now that they're here i can arrange
them into the timeline so i'm going to
this first one let's start with the
waterfall for example and i'm going to
drop it here
into the timeline where it says video 1
and audio one
it's telling me that the project
settings are different from the clip
settings i want to
it says do you want to change the edit
the sequences settings to match the clip
i'm going to say no because i want to
keep it in 1920 and 30 fps
this clip is probably recorded in 60 fps
but we don't need that now i'm going to
do it with the second video okay so i'm
just going to place it right after
and we've got our two
videos one after another now i'm going
to take the music now you can see that
this one here actually has got some
audio attached already so i want to
disconnect it and i want to delete the
audio because we're going to have our
own audio on this to do that you can
right click
and then you can choose this option
unlink and now i can choose
just the audio part and i can hit delete
on my keyboard and
it's gone now let's take this relaxation
and we can put it here and you can
adjust the
length of it to match the length of your
video of course
we're going to have a very short video
of like a minute but you need to build
up your video by inserting more clips
and adding more music this is how
you can do that just using hitfilm
express software
that's it our video is ready to go so
i'm just gonna play this to you it
actually sounds really good and looks
really good i'm gonna take the
headphones and put them next to the mic
here so you can hear how it goes
all right so you can see let me pause
you can see that it's transitioning you
can hear the music it looks beautiful
looks really really good
so now that it's completed within heat
film express we can export it into an
mp4 file to do that you need to choose
your timeline and then go into file and
hit export and here you can give it a
name i'm just going to call it project
mp4 is the preset that you want and hit
save and this will now go ahead and it
will export
your project you can see that we've now
got a file that's one minute and seven
seconds long
but you should of course create a longer
one by using more
audio tracks and more video files the
next step is to create a thumbnail
your video needs to have an attractive
thumbnail and the best way to come up
with an idea
for a thumbnail is to have a look at
other people's thumbnails and see which
thumbnails seem to attract a lot of
for example someone might not want to
see this
guaranteed sleep in 12 minutes but they
might want to watch
some videos about the ocean or some
videos about
nature so these kind of thumbnails seem
to be working quite well for the
relaxation niche so you can do that by
using a software called canva once
you're inside canva it's free to sign up
there is
just use the free plan that you don't
need the professional plan
type in youtube and you can create
youtube thumbnail it will come
with default settings and default size
for it once you've got this open you can
go to photos and
click search and just type in something
like nature and that'll bring up a bunch
of cool
images that you can use once again those
are completely free just make sure that
you're choosing an image that says free
and not pro like this one is a pro image
so you need to actually pay a dollar for
it but there are a lot of free images
that you can use
so something like this one actually
looks super relaxing to me so i can just
drag and drop it here
and this can be the thumbnail you can
play around and find other images you
also upload your own images if you
or other downl free sites once this is
ready just simply click download and
then download it as a png
image from here go ahead and upload your
and you will need to make sure that you
write good description
and you also write a good title so if
you are going for the keyword that says
relaxing spa music for example okay or
relaxing jazz
or music to sleep or relaxing nature
you have to make sure that when you're
uploading when you're actually creating
a video you're entering that
into the title as well as into the first
three lines of the description so you'll
notice that this video for example is
probably going for
amazing nature scenery that's probably
one of the key words that it's targeting
and it's they've got that in the title
three hours of amazing nature scenery
they also have that in the description
enjoy three hours of a major image
amazing nature scenery and they also
have got it further down in the
description again says thank you for
by taking you on a journey with amazing
nature scenery and relaxing music okay
so they're
mentioning it several times in the title
and in the description and in fact
if you use an extension and it's called
vidiq it's a free extension it shows you
the tags on this video
they also gave it in in a tag they've
entered amazing amazing nature scenery
so i know that they're targeting this
particular keyword with this video
if you do want to use the same extension
you can get it it's vidiq just type in
vidiq free and you can get a free
for your browser that extension will
show you these video tags that i can see
on the right hand side here
so here is a quick summary guys you will
need to create videos on the different
that we discussed and i showed you how
to get those keywords you will need to
create videos and different keywords
because this way you're going to
maximize the chance that
your video will come up when somebody is
searching for it on youtube
so put those keywords into the title and
into the description
put that keyword so each video needs to
target a different keyword you might
make a video
on relaxation nature videos on amazing
nature scenery
on relaxing piano music etc
you will need to need to make anywhere
from 50 to 100 videos to really get
i'm not going to lie to you and say that
you you can make five videos and you're
going to become rich it just doesn't
happen on youtube
it did not happen to me it has not
happened to anybody
else i know and i know a lot of
youtubers who are successful
it takes work you need to make you need
to commit to it and you need to make
a lot of videos generally takes between
50 and 100 videos before you can find
but don't forget that you don't need to
make your own videos here you can just
reuse other people's videos and reuse
other people's music okay and you can if
you can commit to it you can make a
per day or video every couple of days or
maybe one video per week and you can get
there within
a few months you can generally start
getting good traction on your channel
once you have got 4 000 watch hours and
you can get that
through youtube analytics once you have
got 4 000 watch hours
which is not a lot believe me it happens
quickly you can apply for monetization
and once you've got your channel
monetized you can start showing those
ads and start making that revenue and if
