In this tutorial, I’m going to show you how you can earn with YouTube revenues making affirmation or motivational videos. There are a couple of channels that are doing this and these affirmation videos get lots of views every time as you can see.
These videos get lots of views because people love hearing affirmation words or motivational videos at least once a day. These are the kind of videos that get people going in life, get people moving forward just in case they’re having a difficult time, or maybe they’re going through a lot in their life.
So I’m going to be showing you how you can make these videos very easily in less than 30 minutes and I’m going to show you how to do that step by step.
So usually what you want to do is to get an idea of how these people are doing these videos, you want to get inspiration on how they’re going about their videos. What you can do is just open one video and what you will notice is a slow-moving video showing sometimes someone working out and a voice-over of someone talking in the background and giving a motivational message.
Additionally, you will hear some background music usually added to make the message go deep.
So we’re going to start by downloading the videos, you can find these kinds of videos in websites like Pixels or Pixabay. The type of videos you want to download are someone exercising or someone hiking.
You can also download video of people who look depressed of sad. These are the types of video that these channels use.
Step 2. Download the background music
The next thing that we want to do is to download the audio sound, remember these videos have some kind of background audio, Ambience calm type of music. So you’re going to head over to YouTube’s audio library. YouTube has a large library of these kinds of copyright-free music that you can use.

Step 3. Write the video script
Once you have downloaded the video and the background music, you now need to write a script for the video. Go to chat.openai.com and sign in. You can use Chat GPT to write a motivational or affirmational script with a very simple prompt.

Step 4. Put everything together
Once you have your script written, you now need to combine and put everything together, that is the videos, background music the script and a voice-over.
