How to Make Money on YouTube Without Making Videos | Side Hustle

Did you know it’s possible to make money online by creating videos without showing your face? This practice isn’t new. Thousands of content creators around the world earn money through YouTube’s AdSense. This happens because YouTube charges advertisers to use its space among the platform’s content, and YouTube in turn passes a portion of these fees to creators as an incentive.

Today, with the AI revolution, it’s become possible to create educational and even intriguing videos on various topics without the creator having to appear on camera. You’ve probably seen channels like this, with just images, or fun animations and a voiceover.

But what I want to introduce today is an even easier way to produce content, even if you know nothing about Artificial Intelligences, video editing, content production, or if you don’t have expensive professional equipment to create these videos.

Meet Matt Par

Matt Par, a 23-year-old YouTuber, already earns over six figures a month creating content for YouTube. This is possible because he has over 12 channels, and only on one of them does he show his face. The others are what he calls niche channels. Channels where he reuses content from other channels, modifies it so it’s not identical, and uploads it back to YouTube.


To make money from YouTube with the AdSense program, you need a minimum of 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 hours of viewing on your videos. However, there is a faster way to profit from your videos.

The Step-by-Step Method

The first thing you need to know is that you should modify the videos before reusing them. You can also take the idea of each video and create your own, with free stock images, like Pixabay.

Choosing the Niche

To start your channel, you’ll obviously need to choose a name. And for that, you’ll need to choose a niche, or in other words, a topic your channel will cover. Some good niche ideas and examples of channels are:

  • Tech Niche (Tech Zone)

  • Meditation Niche (Meditation Relax Music)

  • Psychology Niche (Brainy Dose)

These are just a few examples of large channels with topics that go viral easily. But you’re free to choose a niche that represents you more or that you have more affinity with.

Finding Videos to Use

You can find videos to use on your channel in two main ways:

Searching for your niche theme on YouTube and choosing the videos with the most views, and changing them a bit. Or you can choose free videos from stock footage sites, as mentioned at the beginning of the article. Choosing viral videos can be a good strategy as it indicates they were successful.

Earning More with Affiliate Links

In addition to ads (YouTube AdSense), you can also earn more money by recommending products and services in your videos, and placing the links in the description of each video. These products or services should be related to the topic of your video. When people click on your link and eventually buy something on that site, you earn a commission. Sites like ClickBank and Amazon have these types of products and services. For example, you could make a top 10 tech products video and put the links to all of them in your description.

Making Your Videos Popular

To get a lot of views, your videos need to be easy to find and interesting to watch. Use a free tool like VidIQ to help you choose good titles and write descriptions according to what people are searching for. Also, having an attractive thumbnail for your video is very important.

Adding Ads to Your Videos

Once your channel is popular, you can start making money from ads. If your video is longer than 10 minutes, you can put more ads in it. This means more money for you. All the process is made it on YouTube Partner Program.

Tips for Success

  • Editing Your Videos: Make sure your videos follow the fair use rule. You can edit them with free tools like OpenShot.

  • How Often to Post: Try to post a new video every day. This keeps your channel active and can help you make more money.

  • Creating Good Thumbnails: Use tools like Canva to make eye-catching thumbnails. This helps more people choose to watch your videos.

Making money on YouTube without creating your own videos is possible. Follow these steps, use your creativity to change the videos a bit, and keep an eye on what works best. It takes some effort and learning, but it can be a fun and rewarding way to earn money online.
