    As most of the members here, my goal is to make money online - but wasn't always easy, in fact, this IM world is a bitc# and you must find a way to rule her if you want to make some $$$.

    Disclaimer: English is not my primary language so you will find a lot of mistakes, hopefully, you will get the point.

    I don't have any skill / I don't have any idea how to make money online

    This is the most common thing i hear on the forum, everyone is looking for ideas.

    I was in the same situation like you a few years ago, struggling and reading the forum all day but without taking action. This kind of behavior won't lead you anywhere - so i needed to do something - without skills.

    So I started a Youtube Channel.

    I uploaded a bunch whole of crap, all kind of videos, from games reviews to funny videos or health advice etc, any kind of videos i could find or make.

    PS: This is not some sort of cleaver work, i was a CHINESE WORKER (no offense for any Chinese fellows) for almost one year.


    In one year i made 6338 videos.

    And this is what i get from them:

    [​IMG]

    This is just 1 video - of course, a good one

    This is how Views look like:

    [​IMG]

    Is not awesome, but it brings me around 2k to 4k/ month.

    In my country this is more than decent so I will take that anytime.

    How I create this videos?

    Lately, i made some "Dresses/prom dresses" videos so I will be related to them.

    I find a website/page like this:

    http://www.seventeen.com/prom/prom-style/g216/places-to-find-cheap-prom-dresses/


    You will see that you have there all the things you need (you need to press next):
    • Pictures
    • Text
    You will need a software to create videos from pictures - i use Camtasia.

    I just create the videos, from the pictures (3 seconds per picture) and maybe a text (title) as an overlay.

    Music from Youtube - royalty free.


    How I promote / SEO for videos.

    I don't. I just use TubeBuddy as a plugin in Firefox to check what keywords is should use, title etc.


    And i create Playlists - most of the traffic comes from playlists in my case.

    Videos lengths - between 20 secs to 5 mins. Really depends.

    ---------------------

    I know - this method is not a smart one - I have worked like 6 hours per day to make this revenue

    My point - if you think you can't do money online or you don't have any skill you can always try youtube.

    And... some of us don't have the inspiration to create things like websites or other related things but we are HARD WORKERS.


    Have fun.

    Nice man! Your efforts are truly not fruitless. You earn 2-4k/month after just 1 year?

    Thats like 17 Videos a day every day for the whole year roughly. Just did some rough math. Seems unlikely, but who knows.

    Wow thats impressive! I want to start youtube too, but more for my personal brand. I will also try to promote my business with youtube videos but I do not know how to work everything out and what programs I should use. Would you recommend premiere pro or final cut pro?

    I think mostly with youtube/google adsense.

    Which means running ads on the accounts and thats it and if he has any affiliate links, he'll probably put them in the description too to get some affiliate sales.

    What do the videos look like? In that example, do you just have a video showing some dresses, with text overlay saying stuff like "much wow, excellent yellow dress"
    then in the description how many sentences do you do on average, and do you backlink to the site?

    Cheers.
