YouTube is a huge platform that has made a lot of people millionaires. It takes a lot of time, money and effort to make it big on YouTube.
You have to buy a camera, lighting, video editing software a green screen and other equipment. After that you have to shoot videos until you get them just right. Then you have to edit them and upload them. After all that time and money spent you might not make any money.
Today, I am going to show you how you can make money on YouTube without having to buy a camcorder, lighting or video editing equipment.

Profile of the RankingThe World YouTube Channel
Below is another data channel that has picked up over 107,000 subscribers and 18 million views in one year. It was actually started before the channel I mentioned above.
How you can start a similar channel
You can outsource data videos just like that and post them on your own channel. Basically you will pay someone to make the videos for you, then you upload and make money from them.
For lower prices you usually have to provide the data. For higher priced videos they will gather the data for your video.
At those prices you can load your YouTube channel with dozens of videos on many different topics for a low cost.
If one or two of those videos goes viral your channel could grow to become a great part-time or full-time income just from uploading videos.
Success is not guaranteed
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 and you’ll lose the money you spent on videos.
The best thing you can do for a channel like this is pick interesting topics or topics related to recent events like political and celebrity stuff. Stuff like that will get watched from start to finish.
Another thing you need to do is get great thumbnails created. Great thumbnails get higher click through rates (CTRs).
I have heard watch time and thumbnail CTR are huge factors in whether a video get recommended or not. Make sure you pay attention to them.
Start your channel with outsourced content.
Have a budget for how much you plan to spend on content each month.
Eventually if the channel takes off incorporate your own content in the mix or launch a second channel.
Also try to incorporate product sales of shirts, hoodies or jackets so you can make even more revenue from the channel.
