Unless you make it big — and chances are against you here — YouTube is a waste of time as a side hustle.

Being a “real” YouTuber that is. What do I mean by this?

Putting the “hustle” in side hustle

Imagine you’re a vlogger. You shoot hours of material every day. You have to redo takes all the time. Once you’re done filming, you need to edit. A-roll, B-roll, drone shots, external footage. Sometimes, you need to add in audio which means recording your voice for multiple takes. And then editing that as well.

This will eat up time quickly. It’s not unlikely for beginner YouTubers to spend a full-time job’s worth of hours on a channel that doesn’t earn any money and might never do.

Combine that with the fact that you need 1000 followers and 4000 hours of watch time within 12 months to even get into the YouTube Partner Program and start earning money… and a regular 9–5 suddenly sounds like a dream.

Be faceless instead

Instead of going through that hassle, be a faceless YouTuber.
