This is not a method without investment !
Basically, we will need to make a song and get Youtube Content ID.
After we have a song with Content ID, you will add that song to your videos and earn profit from it. Your videos i mean they are not MVs, they are just normal videos and you will add your song as BGM, outro or intro.


What to do:

First, we need a song. You have some options like ask your friend, hire freelancer or make your own music.

How to make your own music? There are a lot of website you can make an Instrumental like thisthis or just search “make music online”. Its very easy and fun to make your own Instrumental.

Second, after you had a song. You need to submit it to a Music network, which has a service likely called “YouTube Content ID Program”. You will have to pay some fee (base on network) to join or/and proccess this service.

There are a lot of Music Network like that. Example: Distrokid, Tunecore, CDBaby, Repost… or you can find a lot of them in Google, Social Media or Youtube. Some are very easy to join, some are hard. Be careful not to join a scam Music Network.

Those are all music networks

After you get a song with Content ID, you can test by upload video with your music

For example, like this is ok.

Third, which is also very important that most of people dont know. To earn profit from your Content ID, you must upload your videos (with content ID) in a channel with at least 1000 subscribers and 4000 watch hours or your video need at least 10000 views. If you upload your videos in a channel which doesnt fit requirement, all the profit will not come to you.
