Like other users have said, monetizing YouTube videos requires a marketable personality, the ability to occupy an unaddressed creative niche, and other given amenities like enough money for good-quality video equipment. I've contemplated making YouTube videos myself, but there are certain limits I impose on seeing too many aspects of my life as commodities to be separated and sold off to strangers on the Internet. I also lack the patience needed to generate actual fame. Too many YouTubers try to buy their followers in one way or another, or go about methods like sponsorships in a way that comes off as disingenuous. For those reasons, they often lose their fame as quickly as they acquired it.
