Build A YouTube Channel (Without Making Videos)

Today, I am going to show you how you can build a large channel on YouTube without having to buy a camcorder, lighting or video editing equipment. 

You see this channel in the screenshot below.  

Reddit Jar was started Mar 17th, 2019. As of April 26th, 2020 it has had almost 70 million views and it has gained 115,000 subscribers.

It is an AskReddit channel. Their videos consist of content taken from AskReddit threads.

The videos start with a robotic voice reading off the threads question. After that, the robotic voice reads off some of the best responses to the question. Words appear on the screen as the voice reads along.

  • How you can start a similar channel

    For the the two channels above, every one of those videos has been outsourced. That means the owners of those channels pays someone to make the videos for them. 

    All they have to do is upload them and make money from them.

    You can create a similar channel using outsourced videos. Several people on Fiverr can make these types of videos for you. 

    Just go to Fiverr.com and search for Reddit and you will see several people offering video creation services.

    The best price I found is 10 videos for $30.  Each video will be 12 minutes long. That means you can load your channel with $100 videos for $300.

    If one or two of those 100 videos goes viral, your channel could become a great part-time or full-time income.

    He charges $2 for each thumbnail, but I wouldn’t pay that. If you are familiar with photoshop you can hire someone to make one thumbnail for you and you can reedit it for every video. You will save a lot of money doing it that way.

    Evolving to grow the channel

    Most AskReddit channels just post Reddit videos, but you could evolve your channel to the point where you post real on the street interviews or some other humorous content that could help you diversify the content a bit.

    Success is not guaranteed

    No YouTube channel is guaranteed to succeed. You have to rely on YouTube to recommend your videos. That is the key to YouTube success. If your videos don’t get recommended then your channel won’t take off.

    Even though buying videos from Fiverr.com and uploading them is simple, their is a risk that you won’t make your money back. Keep that in mind before you decide to start a channel like this.
