Here's my current situation: I have a completely automated Reddit TTS YouTube channel. The backend of the channel took about 3-4 months of development and handles every aspect of video creation right down to generating my own clickbait thumbnail. Basically, this channel will continue to render and upload new content so long as the machine the videos render off of is functional. My channel, in my opinion, is consistent with or better than the top Reddit TTS channels currently creating content. I plan to keep this channel active until the Reddit servers themselves go down whether I actually make any money off the channel or not. However, that doesn't mean that I'm not looking to profit at all. My questions are: Do I have any chance at all of monetizing this channel through the YouTube Partnership Program? I know some of the big channels are still currently monetized but I suspect they are very old accounts that pass the monetization check years ago. Do I have any chance at all of monetizing this channel through affiliate links and company partnerships? I understand that many companies don't have much desire to work with a channel that has no personality and as a result, I'm not sure if my channel would be a good fit for the higher value affiliates. Are there any other methods of monetization I'm unfamiliar with that could help bring some profit to the channel? Also, I recently spent some time developing the interface of the project to allow for me to spin up more channels super quickly. I've been looking into re-uploading as of recent and have currently built out enough tooling and functionality to be able to start a new automated YouTube channel that mirrors a target channel in about 20 minutes (Which is basically all spent getting API credentials). While the overall process is done, I still need to work on 'masking' the videos to avoid copyright claims, strikes and content ID detection which will take quite a bit more testing. My questions for this are: Is YouTube reuploading worth it? I suspect the answer is no if the person has to do the work themselves, but since it's automated, would it be worth it to just give it a bunch of different niches to target and see what sticks? Would re-uploading as a method to achieve monetization for the channel work? I've been toying around with the idea of 'farming' monetized channels by re-uploading content and then when monetization is achieved switch over to uploading Reddit TTS content I'm not too knowledgeable in this space so I greatly appreciate the help and guidance you guys can provide me with! Thank you!
