    I cant use vines
    I cant use instagram pics
    I cant use twitter pics
    I cant use footage from news/TV/other websites like Liveleak/WSHH
    I cant bee too controversial/politically incorrect

    Basically you can only use a handful of wikipedia royalty free SHITTY pictures, generic royalty free music... and thats about it. You are in contant psychical PAIN paranoid about Google deciding you deserve a ban because you used something that should fall under "fair use" but they decide it doesn't, or you talk about X subject and get banned, ruining your chances to monetize with AdSense ever again.

    Because of this, I haven't made a single video yet. If I was good looking (ideally a girl) I wouldn't need to work a day in my life. A beauty channel and you are SET. If I had some sort of special talent, I would also profit on it. I just dont want to show my face and voice to make money, so im left with little options.

    Please HELP, im incredibly broke and even 100USD a month would be great for me in this situation.

    I've thought about making one of these channels with stolen content but not monetizing it with Adsense and setting clickable links in the video with affiliate links and what not, but im sure this is not legal as well and they will get busted. I dont know what to do to be honest.

    Create authority or MNS (micro niche sites). Authority sites will make more money in the long run if you you are lucky enough, create good content, and do the correct SEO. MNS are better for "churn and burn" and will make you a few dollars a day, so you will need many of them for it to be profitable.

    I've been bored to tears by attractive people, and see pages of talented channels with mediocre/very little attention. Since those are the two factors you're upset about, I feel the need to state they are NOT the case. There's no avoiding the golden rule as old as time: it's not easy to become famous and rich since consistent hardwork is the ONLY way. Wealthy people have resources for a headstart, but it doesn't mean they're entertaining & helpful. Develop a talent, carry yourself confidently and dress/act unique, and keep uploading videos of the profession you do. Animators have shit tons of talent but since it takes weeks to animate a simple clip & youtube favors daily uploads, they're on the shit end of the stick. Do your research; I know it seems unfair out there but less people take action than you think. Don't be one of those people. Starting is easy, pushing through the doubt is where 99% of people quit.

    What the hell can upload daily that doesn't involve your face? the few that aren't showing face are the ones that got the gameplay market cornered, and it definitely requires using voice. I dont want to use my face and voice because im not cut for that.

    I said I dont want to become famous, I just want the money. Even 700 USD a month would be a great goal for me, so I dont necessarly want to be rich (of course I want to, but not at the expense of being famous).

    Also I dont have a profesion, im unemployed, my country has one of the biggest unemployment rates in what we call 1st world.

    When you say "I've been bored to tears by attractive people, and see pages of talented channels with mediocre/very little attention.", you say YOU. Their main audience (tweens) love it. For f*** sakes, Pew and the rest of these guys could be dropping daily vids forever and still get millions of views, they'll never get bored of watching that s***, and even if they do, new generations of tweens come to consume their content.

    That's the problem, those guys make millions by being famous and your goal is a few hundred USD a month. Because of your goal you don't need to bother so much... honestly all you need is to learn how to code, or make graphics sell a few a month and your set. Or create a website, monetize it, spam the internet to gain some visitors and you are set.

    There are plenty such methods on BHW if you look a bit. I took 1, coded a quick bot, bypassed all the securities of a site that I was spamming and made 300$ in a month with few mins a day and that was with a really slow version of the bot and after that I didn't have any time to upscale this because I found way more profitable ways to profit with my skills.

    So you don't really need to be 'attractive', you just need to create a specialty for yourself by gaining a simple skill and then either use it to create a business, or to get work.

    You could learn how to use autotune to improve your voice if you don't think its good enough for a video. The program can be torrented, and there are some how to guides on youtube on using.

    So. fu**ing untrue. Countless people have become rich and famous without consistent hardwork. Through luck, connections, or as a courtesy to OP plain looks.

    I think what funkybunker may be trying to say is that consistent handwork is the only way to consistently become rich, not the only way. Sure people get rich and famous all the time with what some may dub, "not very much work", but in a world of 7 billion+ people (just take a moment to appreciate how f****** big that number is) it really isn't that hard for rare exceptions to be quite common when you look for them. You sure as hell shouldn't be relying on dumb luck to be one of these rare and (for lack of a better word) blessed people, you should follow the established method of working your a** off so you can take advantage of any rare opportunities that come your way and survive if any don't.

    Unless you really are one of the fucking unlucky 0.1% of people who are just going to be screwed over in life no matter what (freak accident, truly one in a million situation, etc.), hard work will bring you success at some point. This why it is so critically important that any aspiring IMer get it through his f****** thick skull to expect working his a** of every day to be a necessary part of success, not just an unfortunate fall back if things go s*****.


    (also sorry about the childish censoring of swears this forum forces me to use, but hey one f*** made it through xD)

    What do you mean "to bother so much"? Playing games and getting money seems way easier than learning how to code which takes ages if you want to be good at it, same goes for "making graphics".
    Creating a website falls under the same problem... content that doesn't go against the ridiculous AdSense policies. Everything that I think could lead to a decent amount of visitors breaks the AdSense policies. I wish I had a similar site than Perez Hilton, im an expert at talking sh*t about people specially famous ones, but I would get my *ss destroyed by Google and my account canceled for life if I did the same.

    No offense OP but all I see in your post is "I can't".

    I used to have a similar mindset back then and I missed out on so many opportunities..

    How about in-game commentary? Tons of people who play games and make money without having to show their faces.

    Try to think positive OP. I'm sure you'll be able to get past those barriers with that mindset. :)

    He'd need to be an animator to do that, or hire one which seems out of the picture with his current income. You could torrent ToonBoom or Adobe Flash and practice animation yourself of course.

    Like every market in existence, never go by what you enjoy first. If you're doing it for money, you have to do what gets you paid. If stupid videos get you paid then that's the job you take. This doesn't mean don't follow your passion but money rarely comes from doing things you love. I could be wrong but not so far.

    To the user who said hard work = success is untrue, you NEVER count the dumb-luck exceptions. Hard & smart work is the rule; the one that works 99% of the time. People getting lucky don't know how they got rich, so they can never re-create it. You can't just wait for the day everyone knows your name because you heard it happened to some other guy. He's not you.

    Basically Daveman...you want to be able to do 10 minutes of work a day and from the sounds of it you want it completely automated...then cash in almost a grand a month US for this effort...

    All you have mentioned is that you can not think past any blackhat niches, you do not want to talk into a microphone, be seen on camera at all or actually produce any type of real, useful or interesting video content. Because of all this stuff that you "Cant" or "Wont" do...it means you have not created a single video...

    My best advice is to forget about making videos or money from Youtube all together. It is not right for you and you are probably never going to succeed at it. For that matter, you should probably forget about doing anything internet related because you have completely the wrong attitude to be successful. This is because you want an easy way to make money and there is no easy way to make money on the internet...You even said it yourself, "Playing Games and Making Money seems easier than learning how to code"....If that is what you want to do, then go do that...since you should easily be able to start playing a game next week and in a few more weeks have a pile of money in your pocket...should be simple, easy and not take to long at all...since it takes so long to do anything else....

    As a side note...I showed 3 people last month how to make money on Youtube and the internet from their passion or interests(sewing, mobile games and sightseeing). They are all making at least some ($50-$600 a month already) money...one of them shows their face and talks, another does not show face but talks and the third does not talk or show their face....The thing is, they are putting in between 20-40+ hours a week but since it is something they have an interest in, the time is not an issue but the extra money is a great thing.

    I'd be very interested to know how to do that, I can't PM you but I was thinking of starting a YT account from my passion and using some tricks to jump start it.

    You can use and monetize anything as long as you have PERMISSION. So GO and ask!

    Stop giving a fuck what anyone else thinks. What is more important? Money in your pocket or the fact that your neighbor thinks you talk to yourself? hell, go and tell him you run a Youtube channel. That will make you accountable and make you work hard.

    Just coz you don't like your voice does not mean no one else in the world will. Look at KSIolajidebt- guy is weird and has an annoying voice but he's made it work for himself. Go look up Sadowick- guy has a monotonous voice but it works for him. Stop saying Can't !! Go try something at least. Unless you swing the bat you can't hit a home run. you my friend, are reluctant to even pick up the bat. Change this mindset.

    If you can afford, get a cam that can be fixed on your helmet. Take your Bike (Bi-cycle!) get to the busy traffic area, catch live or sometimes if lucky, you may get some interesting action on road that automatically records on your cam. Upload on youtube and make money! Few people are already doing this stuff with good results.. search on youtube for more ideas!!
