      • Hi, and thank you for the information. This will be my first time trying it out. I don’t know how to implement this. All I have an idea that I would like to start on now, but I don’t know which it would fit on the list that you provided to make this happen. Could you please email me to my email below?

      • Can an youtube channel which has no videos showing face and no voice be monetized ?.
        I want to start a channel which only shows texts which give information about something.. pls say your suggestions..
        waiting for your reply..

        • I would recommend at least using human voice on your videos if you are creating videos without face. That would be a no problem.
          It would be tougher to get your video monetized with Adsense if you are not using human voice and no face. But there are other ways you can monetize videos.
          So, if you are thinking about monetizing with ads, at least use human voice in your faceless videos. Otherwise you can check out these other ways to make money from your YouTube videos.

  1. Heartful thanks. Amazing ideas indeed. You’ve answered all my questions. You’re such a great writer. Thank you again.

  2. This helped me a lot with ideas on which channel I wanna start, I might be starting a few by the look of things.

    • Yeah, you can monetize such videos for sure.
      There’s a YouTube channel named “Data is Beautiful” who creates such videos.
      Apart from YouTube partner program, there are other ways to monetize your YouTube videos, check this post.

      • Thanks for the reply! Yes Data is Beautiful is great and it is one of the channels that inspire me to get into this niche. My concern is as with any niche channels there may be some videos with similar topics. By know means am i looking to copy and I wouldn’t try to present anything that isn’t something i created however, I am wondering if youtube would allow monetization because cause the content is similar. A lot of these race bar channels have many video topics in common.

        • Hey Joe,
          It’s definitely possible to get monetized on this niche but there are uncertainties just like in other niches.
          Not trying to demotivate but there actually are many channels that are doing exactly this so you may have a hard time growing your channel on the same niche. So you may want to rethink about the niche or presenting data on a different way.

  3. Hi. Can you suggest what video topic ideas that can go viral on youtube? So we can make such video to post on our youtube channel.

    • Hello,
      I have recently published an article on getting video ideas on any niche that have a potential of getting better engagement. You can check it here.
      But instead of looking for topics that can go viral, I would suggest you to pick a niche and start working on that. I’d prefer a narrow topic rather than targeting a broad niche. You can achieve success on any topic if you create interesting unique and engaging content.

  4. Hi, great article.
    I want to create social commentary videos, where I show images and gifs to accompany my voice. Can you recommend a program that is user friendly and that will record my voice with changing images?
    Thank you

  5. My major problem when it comes to making a youtube channel is finding my major niche. It’s really very difficult to find our niche so I had to search online and I found your listings regarding youtube ideas. I have written two ideas from your listings (Podcast and Listicles) and would love to try both of them today. I will get back to you after working on both ideas and thank You for the information.

  6. Hey Dipendra,
    Great article but is it really a valid strategy to create travel videos and not show your face.
    I ask because I have never seen one that does not show it.
    Anyways the article is still great.
