Using A PowerPoint Slideshow

Start by copying your article into a blank PowerPoint slide. You’ll have to break up sentences or phrases from the article by adding slides. You’ll need to determine how long you want the article to be. That’s important because you’ll use tools in PowerPoint to determine how long each slide stays on the screen. Read through the article to see if you want to take from it or add to it to make a good video. You can also experiment with changing the size, font, and color of the text. You can be creative by changing the background color and/or by adding borders. You can also add pictures and videos. Once you’re done, save the file and use the file menu in PowerPoint to save the slideshow on your computer as a movie.

Click on the new movie file that you saved from PowerPoint. Wait for YouTube to do it’s magic of turning your movie into a YouTube movie. While you’re waiting you can add a description and tags to your file. You can also choose to make the video public or private.

Connecting Adsense to Youtube Channel

There’re no guarantees about how much money you’ll make or that you’ll make any money by doing this. But in my experience, the videos do as well as the articles if not better. But a lot of that depends on the quality, relevance and SEO of the video. If people find your article helpful they make click on the ads that YouTube puts on your video and you’ll make money.
