I have peiced together the following incredibly simple method of making money using YouTube videos but here's the disclaimer or caveat. I haven't actually tried it myself ss im not very technical with YouTube. I have seen a video which explains how to download videos from YouTube but I don't know if it is actually possible or if indeed it is possible to add affiliate links to YouTube videos.
1. Download creative commons videos from YouTube. Find the videos usibg creative commons search engine and download them using a Firefox add on.
2. Upload video back to YouTube under your own account. Add affiliate links to Amazon using bitly short URLs.
3. Post your copy of the video on related Facebook groups.
