Business Advice Video:

Every single day on YouTube. And the best part is you don’t have to create any videos. Make sure you like this video save it and share with a friend. Now here’s how it’s done. First, go to YouTube dot com and search a highly requested keyword like funny animal videos. Once the videos come up go to filters. Select Creative Commons. This will filter all the videos that have the Creative Commons license which means you have permission to use. Next, find a video that has tons of views like this one. That’s 14 million views. Next, right-click on the video and select Copy Link. Next, go to Google and select YouTube Downloader then select an option that works for you. Next, just paste the link you copied and click download. Next, go to and create an account then upload your video. Rumble has a revenue-sharing program so you’ll get pay-per-view after you post a video. Rinse and repeat and post as many videos as you want. For more tips like this, you know what to do.

Matt Reaction: 

Okay so here’s the basic idea, take publicly available content off YouTube, put it on a different platform, and wait for 1 million people to watch it and get paid. Do you see the problems with that? 

First of all, I don’t know how many people are using Rumble but I can’t imagine it’s a ton. Second of all, that whole process seems like it would take about 5 minutes, if it really only takes five minutes and you could throw it up there and make 150 bucks a day, why isn’t this guy doing it times a million? Right and making $150,000 a day if it’s that easy and it really pays. These kinds of ideas don’t make any sense. They don’t scale at all. I’m sure you can go through, find videos, copy them, put them on another platform, but that’s where it ends. Nobody’s watching those videos on that other platform. And that other platform has no incentive to pay you unless people are watching cause they wanna run ads against it and share some of that ad revenue with you. If this was as easy to do as this guy is saying, he’d be doing it himself or people would be doing it and so many people do it so quickly that it would be completely saturated. Which is, I’m sure, exactly where this is. 

This is not a way to make $150 a day, it’s a way to make a dollar fifty a month if you’re lucky. If you put up a thousand videos and you wait and a few people watch them eventually and they eventually get to enough where the payout is actually something they send you, you’re gonna get a buck or two maybe. And I would say not. I wouldn’t even count on that like. These ideas just don’t make any sense. Just ask yourself simply common sense-wise, right, if it was that easy to do why would this guy be telling me about it? Why wouldn’t he just be doing it himself? Why would you stop at $150 a day? Why wouldn’t you go until you literally couldn’t make any more money? Why didn’t squeeze it out, squeeze out any more money out of it? And if everyone could do it then why wouldn’t everyone do it and be doing it and be making all kinds of money? And if you think “well everyone probably is making a lot of money except me. I’m the last one in”, I promise you you’re not the last one in. No one else is doing this, no one else is making money with this –  this idea is ridiculous. 

If you wanna make money by creating videos and only available from you that has your unique spin on it. Get viewers, build an audience, build a reason for people to come and watch your stuff. Just copying and pasting other people’s stuff is not the way to get anywhere. And this guy suggesting that it is and it’s easy and you can make hundred and fifty bucks a day I think are all just lies, essentially to get you to visit his other stuff so he can sell you something.
