YouTube is an awesome platform for promoting your content and bringing traffic to your platforms. You can direct and film awesome videos that you will be able to monetize itself. However, this might be a little problematic because you would usually need a good initial capital to to come up with the concept, write the script, produce the video and the audio, clean up everything and edit it into a final video before uploading it. And only then can you start building your marketing campaign in order to earn anything. Fortunately for you, there is a method you can use to make videos without huge initial investments. It is, however, not an absolute remedy and you shouldn’t overuse it.

Basically, what you have to do is to download existing videos from YouTube, put them together (but it should not in any case look like plagiarism), and then upload the videos back to YouTube under your own channel and monetize them. It is much easier than the standard way, you don’t have to spend a fortune but it still works as monetization. Just make sure you do not violate any copyright and don’t get in any trouble.
The first thing you need to do is to understand what you video is going to be about. Write a simple script to know what you are up to.The next and very important step is to find the right videos to use. Only use video and audio clips you have the rights to use. Find videos that match your topic and that will look great in your video remix. You will want like 3-5 of them. Then you will need to put your videos together and produce the narration. You can do this in the YouTube video editor as there is a separate track for audio. Render the final video and upload it to YouTube.
You are not able to use YouTube’s basic AdSense capabilities to monetize your videos in this case. There are a few programs that actually allow monetization of remixed videos and are proved not to be very effective. However, you can use your YouTube content to bring traffic to your site and convert it into money. Sometimes YouTube will ask you to provide more information about where you got your videos and might punish you for “stolen content”. So it’s better to use affiliate offers for this sort of video, rather than sending viewers directly to your store.
A great thing about YouTube is that you don’t necessarily have to produce content to monetize it. You can combine existing video clips and audio. Remixing existing clips will take up some creativity but will also put you in line with high-paid content producers. Just make sure you remix a lot and use content wisely. Don’t use videos or music you have no rights for. You have all the opportunities to use YouTube effectively so make the most out of it. Now that you monetized it you have the capital to produce your original content.
