    Hi guys, as you can see I'm not a regular poster but I've spent a lot of time reading a lot of threads here. I've been looking for a way to make a little money that doesn't require skills or a big budget, because I have neither.

    After some thinking, I've decided to give Youtube a try. I'm going to make videos using a software called Imagination, it's free and easy to use. The process of making a video is also pretty simple, I just download some pictures from Google Images related to the subject of the video and add music (I'm going to use royalty free music so there's no problem with copyright).

    Today I've uploaded the first video and enabled monetization. I'll keep this thread updated as I add more videos and hopefully I start making money! Wish me luck!

    sub'd. Make sure the images you use also must be copyrighted free otherwise strikes are possible.
    I am also looking to do same as you

    Unfortunately it's pretty much impossible to find royalty free pictures that are specific to this subject, so I'll have to take the risk with that. I'm not worried though, everyone uses copyrighted images on Youtube so I think strikes are rare. We'll see.

    I'm uploading generic lists of interesting things. I'm also thinking about making documentaries. At the moment there's still no traffic, but I've shared the videos on a few Facebook pages. Other than that, I'm relying on Youtube's tags and algorithms. Strangely enough, I've also uploaded the same videos on another site, vid.me (a fresh Youtube competitor) and I got 6 views in just a few minutes.

    Thanks. For now I haven't chosen any specific niche for my videos, I use a different subject for every video.

    So far today I've optimised the tags in my videos and I've created a blog on Blogger (linked to my Youtube account) where I'll post short articles with the videos embedded in them. My videos have 10 views on vid.me and only 1 on Youtube, despite the fact that there's a lot more people on Youtube. I don't know what to think about that, but I'll keep uploading my videos on vid.me too.

    So, you are going to use youtube ads? Isn't that going to take months / years before you start earning $50 per day?
    Anyway, I wish you good luck!

    It's going to take a while, probably not years but months, maybe. I don't expect to get rich quick. :)
    Today I woke up and checked the statistics on my blog and channel. Good news! During the night my articles were viewed by a few people and it looks like embedding the videos in them was a good idea, because the views for the videos have also increased. Today I'll upload at least 1 more article and a couple of videos.
    Yesterday I also created a Reddit account, and after waiting for a few weeks I'll use it to share my videos on some relevant channels.

    Hi, good luck on your interesting journey, I think of some social niche that can apply the technique like yours, thanks for the rockket ideas.
    + ABout the video maker: Your software is so easy to use but there may be many others can brings in inspiring effect for the clips
    + Content: it's much safer to use stock photo that has the right for commercial use than using some photo from google that we dont know exactly if it has the right for reuse. anyway, leaving a credit is a must.
    + Promote: earning free traffic from youtube similar video at the right sidebar is a cool approach to drive free traffic, just optimize the seo ( but not over optimize that can be flagged as spam ) the choosing the right keywords is the key i think so.

    Keep updating this journey, i like to see the real walks to success bro :D
