A MONEY-MAKING pro has revealed how you could earn $500 per day by creating simple videos and posting them online.
YouTuber Journey With The Hintons explained a side hustle that involves picking simple motivational videos without doing any filming, writing, or speaking.
The savvy businesswoman, whose name is Monique, pointed out just how popular the inspiring videos are, and just how easy it is to get involved.
“These videos are getting millions of views, and are making $300 to $500 dollars or more a day,” Monique said in the video.
“It’s going to be a super easy method. You will not need a camera, you will not have to show your face, you will not have to use your voice.”
People make tons of money on YouTube by earning ad revenue from their videos.
Monique used the analytics website Social Blade to check just how much popular channels are earning.
While she said it’s not completely accurate, the website still gives you a good indication of how profitable some of these videos can be.
Monique found an incredibly easy way to profit from this by piecing together content from free-to-use websites.
For the footage, she said you just get free stock videos from pexels.com.
“First question a lot of people have: ‘Am I gonna get a copyright strike?’ No, you are not,” the YouTuber said.
As a free-to-use website, Pexels offers tons of great photos and videos that you can grab without any cost.
The only stipulation is you cannot sell printed images and claim they are your own work.
After searching for motivational clips in the search bar, the video pro downloaded a ton of different options to piece together her unique project.
For the background music in the motivational video, Monique suggested getting a free 30-day trial with Epidemic Sound.
“I’m telling you guys to use this while it is free because this gives you a chance to test it out,” she said.
Epidemic Sound has great, cinematic-level music that will increase the emotional quality of your motivational video, according to the YouTuber.
“So we almost have all the ingredients we need for this masterpiece,” she said.
“The last thing we need is the person who’s gonna be talking, and we know it’s not us.”
For your motivational speeches, the YouTuber said you can actually get free-to-use audio at the Internet Archive.
All you have to do is use keywords like “positive affirmations” to track down public domain clips that will work as your script, Monique said.
She found tons of great options in the Community Audio section, and after downloading a clip she was ready to piece together the video.
Monique said that she uses the Final Cut Pro software on her Mac to build her masterpiece.
First, she just dragged and dropped all the video clips from Pexels until she got around 10 minutes of footage.
Then, she put in the music from Epidemic Sound and adjusted the volume to her liking.
Finally, she tackled the motivational audio by cutting up the speech so that all the elements flow well together.
“So once you get your videos in the order you want them to flow, once you shorten them to a good amount of time, and you take the audio of the person speaking, you should have something like this,” she said.
Monique showed off about a minute of her creation which looked perfectly professional after just minutes of putting together free-to-use files that anyone can grab.
However, she added that arguably the most important part of the project is naming your video similarly to other creators who are performing well on YouTube.
“You want to use something similar so you can draw from the people who have been watching their videos,” Monique said.
“So you have to keep in mind what are people searching for, and how can I get them here. That’s what you always want to be thinking.”
She also noted that you need a minimum of 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 hours watched to be eligible to make money off your masterpieces.
This comes as a man well into his 70s found a post-retirement side hustle that’s making him up to $3,000 a month.
