What You Need Monetize Videos – Computer
Obviously, for this method, you need a computer. Because the steps outlined in the next chapter rely on Windows Movie Maker, a free program from Microsoft, your computer should ideally run under Windows 7, Windows 8 or 8.1, or Windows 10. If your computer is running under MacOS X, Linux or older versions of Windows, you will not be able to run Windows Movie Maker. There are, however, other free alternatives out there for your operating system.
You don’t need an extremely fast computer to follow this method. Any computer – laptop or desktop – released within the last five or six years should be able to output the videos we’re going to create.
As I mentioned earlier, for this method we are going to use Windows Movie Maker. In addition, you will need a graphics editor to create the images containing the quotes. While you can obviously create great pictures with a paid program such as Photoshop, you can achieve very similar results with a free program such as Paint.net (not to be confused with the dreadful Paint program built into Windows) or GIMP, which are both available under a wide variety of operating systems.
Since you are going to upload videos to YouTube, you obviously need a YouTube account. Both brand new and aged accounts are perfectly suitable for this method. If you already have a YouTube account, you may want to create a new channel dedicated to your quotes videos. You can find more information about creating a YouTube channel over here:
And… That’s It! See? I wasn’t lying when I said you could create videos without spending a dime!
