    Note: What I meant by “faceless” is that, I am not showing my face or using my voice to create the videos. I hire voice over artists to do the Voiceover, the videos on my channels are more or less similar to the videos on channels like BrightSide, BodyHub.


    I am using 2 youtube channels for this journey, here are some stats about those channels:


    Channel 1

    • Niche - Health & Wellness

    • Subscribers - 20,000+ (28-Sep-2019)

    • Number of Videos: 69 (28-Sep-2019)

    • Current Adsense earnings per month - $350 - $400 (CPM $2)

    Channel 2

    • Niche - Motivation (Repurposed, previous niche: Survival)

    • Subscribers - 2800+ (28-Sep-2019)

    • Number of Videos: 0 (i removed all my previous videos) (28-Sep-2019)

    • Current Adsense earnings per month - $0 (not monetized yet, waiting to hit 4k hours for review)

    So these are my current standings. The main focus of this journey will be Channel 1, for Channel 2 here are my plans:


    • Create and upload 30 videos, and wait till it gets reviewed and hopefully, approved for monetization. After that, I will be constantly adding videos.

    More about Channel 1…


    This channel started as a side project at the beginning of 2018. I just created and uploaded 10 videos, and just let it be there. Some of those videos started gaining 100k+ views and gained 1000+ subscribers in a relatively short time.


    So I applied for monetization and after about a month I was approved. Since then I have been uploading videos here and there and earnings kept increasing steadily. I couldn’t consistently work on my channel as I was involved in other projects. But now I see a lot of potential in this and hopefully hit bigger targets like $10k/month in the long term.


    Affiliate Earnings: This is not my main focus and I don’t count affiliate earning in this journey. I usually make around $150 - $200 from a Clickbank product I promoted in one of my videos.


    My Plan For Channel 1 (from Octorber 2019 to end of December 2019)


    I have planned to consistently upload 1 video every day for the next 3 months. And afterwards, depending on the earnings, I will hand over the job to a VA hired from Philipines.


    I am using a strategy that has worked for me several times in the past. I have explained about this below under the title. “The Process”


    Content: I get content from websites by googling the topic and I rewrite them, do some adjustments to make it sound like a video script and handover that to the Voice Over artist.


    The Costs


    The main costs are the amount I pay for VoiceOver. I usually pay $10 per 1000 words or per script. And hire the Voice over guy from Fiverr.


    NOTE: Yes, it is super cheap! Most VO gigs on Fiverr charges $5 for 100 words! So I don’t buy any of those gigs, I just post a “Request” and find good talented VO artist who is willing to do the job 10 times cheaper!. You can try this yourself and you will be surprised at the response you will get from the sellers. Thank me later. (Ask and you shall receive :))


    Channel 1:


    Voice Over for 30 scripts every month: 30*10= $300/month

    100 PBN embeds (optional): $50


    Do PBN embeds help get more views on youtube? I don't know, but I “believe” that It helps rank videos in Youtube search. I guess youtube’s search algorithm is somewhat similar to Google’s. This is all theory though.


    Channel 2:


    Voice Over for 30 scripts: 30*10= $300

    100 PBN embeds (optional): $50


    Software I use: Content Samurai, I already have the annual plan so no costs there for the moment.



    THE PROCESS


    STEP 1: Set Up a List of Competitors



    STEP 2: Choose a Popular Topic from Competitor's Popular Videos (eg: chia seeds benefits)



    STEP 3: Research the Topic and Find a 'Popular' Sub Topic (eg: chia seeds benefits for weight loss)



    STEP 4: Create a Better Video That is 6 - 8 Mins Long, Make it More Engaging


    Note: Why 6 to 8 mins? Because most videos of my competitors are not more than 4 minutes long. So when I create a better and engaging video that is 6 to 8 mins long, I will get better watch time!.


    Here is why, say the viewers on average watch 50% of my competitor's 4 min long video, that is just 2 minutes, but when viewers watch 50% of MY 6 - 8 mins long video, it will be 3 to 4 Mins!


    Youtube LOVES HIGH CTR + HIGH WATCH TIME, its no secret. So by creating longer videos + clickbaity thumbnails I have a higher chance of getting youtube love :)

    STEP 5: KWs in title with a mild clickbait (eg: Chia seeds for weight loss: Each Chia Seeds for 30 days and THIS will Happen to your body)

    - Write a good, keyword-rich description

    - Get tags from similar videos that have 1M+ views

    - Get Tags from Youtube Auto Suggestions

    - Get High Volume Tags from VidIQ

    I am not used to typing this long (I am a lazy ass), I created this thread to keep myself accountable. If you have questions, please do ask and I will try my best to answer. But be warned, I am no expert!


    HITTING THE TARGET

    Hitting the target of $2000/month will mark the end of this journey and the beginning of another :)

    I expect to hit it in 3-6 month time. But 90% of predictions about the future are wrong and this is no exception to that fact. There are so many variables in play so it might take longer, but I have no idea of giving up.

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

    If you think I need to tweak something in my “PROCESS” or have any advice/ideas, please do let me know.

    UPDATES: I will be updating this thread every Thursday.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    THANKS FOR READING THIS FAR... Here’s a fun fact:


    The channel BrightSide, which is not more than 2 years old, has 30 million subs and receives 178 Million views per month (vidIQ data), let's assume they get $1-$2 CPM from Adsense, that means they make between $178,000 to $356,000 per month!!


    Not bad for 2 years of hard work and 2900+ videos.

    Very interesting and well thought out plan. Good luck for your journey.

    You said that you will get a VO for the script but what will be the visual content? Will you be using animation? whiteboard? or plain slideshow video?

    Sounds solid. Never paid much attention to monetizing Youtube but I've added it to my list of potential revenue streams. Thanks for sharing and good luck.

    That's exactly what I've been wanting to do, but I don't think I have enough money to put out enough videos until I get monetised. I'll follow your journey for more valuable info.
    What's your profit?
