 7. Creating a Youtube Channel 

The most common but a little bit stressful way of making money is by creating a YouTube Channel

Examples of niches you can go for based on your interest on YouTube are

* Vlogs

Vlogs or vlogging involves regularly recording and publishing videos of your everyday life. If you have a large audience on YouTube, this can be a very easy way to create YouTube content because you can broadcast yourself unedited and connect with your followers on personal grounds.

*Tech Videos

I watch a lot of technology videos because of the different equipment that are coming out rapidly and how educative they can be, especially when the publisher is well grounded in the tech space.

These days, it is not just me. Millions of people go on YouTube to watch reviews about the latest phone or learn about a phone they plan to buy.

If you’re a Techy person, then Tech videos are definitely the niche for you.


Whether it is cooking, do-it-yourself tasks like laundry, carpentry, doing makeup, fixing cars, teaching techy stuff like website design, etc., there are always people who want to learn how to do stuff by watching videos and you could make money off them by providing the needed content.

*Product Reviews

I’m one of those people who like to watch a video on an item that I’m thinking about purchasing to see how it worked for someone else. Being a Product Reviewer can get you free items from companies who need their products put out there for promotional purposes and some good cash to follow it.


This is the most popular niche of all on YouTube . Nobody likes to be worried and moody and this is why many people like to engage in some fun activity like watching comedy videos on YouTube.

If you are funny, know how to prepare comedy skits. 

Youtube allows their users to monetize their channel after reaching the requirements for it (1000 subs and 4000 hrs watch time)
