For this MMM to work, you will need an old youtube account (preferably over 6 months old), a Google AdSense account and some money to start.
You will need to know how to create a youtube channel and how to optimize your videos titles, descriptions and thumbnails. You will need to have a basic understanding of Google Adsense and how does it work and you will need to know how to promote a video on youtube. Keep in mind that all of these are explained below.
What you'll do:
Create a youtube channel using that old youtube account focusing on some niche that you know attracts a lot of views. For this example, we are going to use the "Car Crashes, Dash Cams and Security Cams" niche as we know it is something that a lot of people are interested in seeing on youtube.
Link your Youtube channel with Google Adsense so you can enable video monetization which will automatically make you a youtube partner. If you do not know how to do that just click here. Make sure you unlock the "custom thumbnails" feature as you will need it for this tutorial.
What you want to do next is to search the web for interesting "Dash Cam and Security Cam" footages showing car crashes, muggings, funny things caught on tape, you name it. Just find some videos that you know people will like to see.
As youtube pays people for the amount of views they get in their videos it is important that you find a really good niche.
Important Note: Do not download videos which have been recorded by a pedestrian or amateur videographers, only use videos captured by public cameras.
After building a nice collection of videos you want to start uploading them to your new youtube channel. The video length is entirely your choice. You can choose to upload singular footages of car crashings or to compile a small 2-5 minute montage with some videos on that subject.
Be sure to upload a maximum of two videos per day as you're trying to build a legit youtube channel and you don't want to be spammy.
Upload good eye-catching thumbnails for your videos and be sure to optimize the title and the description for better SEO results. You can learn more about how to optimize your youtube videos for views here.
This next step involves spending a small amount of money. Let's say that you already have 4 or 5 really good videos uploaded on your youtube channel. The next thing you want to do is to pick a potentially viral video an to promote that video by paying money to youtube. If you've never used youtube ads click here to learn how to do it.
Important Note: Do not narrow down to any particular audience or demographic as this will increase your ads cost. If your video is interesting people will respond to it and within a couple of days you will start to get reactions, subscribers and youtube will naturally begin to show your video as a suggestion to other people right next to other extremely popular videos.
In the meantime keep uploading good quality videos as frequently as you can.
Once your promoted video hits a good amount of views (around 50k to 100k) you can stop promoting it because from now on it will be able to grow naturally. What you need to do now is to choose another one of your videos and repeat the process.
Your channel will start to get thousands of subscribers and youtube will start featuring your channel in suggested channels. Each video you upload from this point (presuming it is a good quality interesting video) will get a lot of views (as you already have a lot of subscribers) so your Google Adsense earnings will skyrocket.
This is how you can start making money on YouTube right away. Keep in mind that despite it looking simple it all depends on how much effort you are able to put in. Nothing comes easy and at the end of the day what distinguishes those who succeed from those who don't is the "doing". Good luck with your journey.
Frequently Asked Questions
- Why do I need an "old" Youtube account?
The reason why it is better to use an old youtube account is because all the new accounts that want to apply for youtube monetization will have to go under review. If you end up choosing a niche like the example we used above (dash cams, security cams, etc) and youtube ends up reviewing one of your videos they will probably take them down because you're not the rightful owner of the rights to those videos.
- Does this method only work with "Dash Cam Footage" type of videos?
No, this method will work with any other niche you pick, however, keep in mind that choosing your niche correctly is by far the most important part of this method. If you DO NOT choose something that people want to see, then you WILL NOT succeed. It's all about giving people what they want.
- How much money will I have to spend for it to work?
We cannot estimate a certain amount because it all depends on many factors. Again, it all depends on the niche you choose and to how people respond to it.
- Can YouTube take down any of my videos?
It definitely can happen. If it does we recommend you delete that video, edit it and re-upload it.
- Where can I find an "Old" YouTube account?
There are a lot of websites selling old YouTube accounts across the web. A quick "buy old YouTube account" search on google can answer your question.
- What if I don't have any video editing experience?
If you do not know how to make a simple montage video using smaller videos there's two options. Either you can learn it (as it is a super simple thing to do) by watching videos on YouTube or you can "hire" someone to do it for you. There are a lot of websites like "Fiverr" or "Upwork" where you can hire freelance editors.
- Do you guarantee any results?
We do not guarantee any results using this or any other method available on our website. Making money online starts and depends entirely on YOU. Not methods. Not courses. Not Google. It's all about you.
