Best Faceless Copy and Paste YouTube Channel Ideas

There are many faceless copy and paste YouTube automation channel ideas to choose from so have no fear, you're not going to be scratching your head for ideas!

In this article I will provide for you a list of the top YouTube channel ideas to choose from where you can simply copy and paste free content to make it your own. You won't need to go on camera with any of these types of channels.

These channels have been proven to be successful because of the high view count and subscriptions.

These channels can be built free of charge with free software to edit and you can also find the stock images/videos for free as well.

You do however need to be careful when you "repurpose" existing content in your own videos. There is a thing called "fair use" which I'll also talk about after this list of ideas so that you'll know how to play fair and avoid getting your channel banned on YouTube.

Sound good? Now here's some great channel ideas!

1. Affirmation Channel

Affirmation channels are a great idea for a faceless YouTube channel because of its simplicity and high demand. Affirmations are positive, empowering statements that people look for to help with motivation and mental well-being. 

These channels require minimal visual content so it would be easy to just copy and paste text in your videos with more focus on high-quality audio.

An example of a channel like this is Positive Affirmations.

2. Aviation/Airplane Channel

An aviation/airplaine channel draws a lot of interest due to the widespread fascination with aircraft and the aviation industry. It appeals to a wide audience from aviation enthusiasts to people interested in travel and also those that are tech-savvy.

You can find plenty of photos and stock video photos to copy and paste for your videos. You can use narration or just text on screen. Even animation can be used for a channel like this. If you have an interest in aviation, this is a great channel to explore for an automated channel. A great example is the 3 Minutes of Aviation Channel

3. Animal Channel

With an animal channel, its best to focus on either an animal facts channel, one that shows funny animal videos or an "inspiring animals" channel.

This is important because you want to stick to a particular theme. Someone watching funny animal videos might not care too much about "animal facts" so choose a lane and stay within it.

Many of these channels go viral and you don't have to focus on just dogs and cats, you could go broad with many different species but I would stick with one of the 3 different approaches I mentioned.

An example of one of these strategies is the Animal Facts channel

4. Animation Channel

You can use software like Animaker to create awesome looking animations for just about any type of animated video. Animation allows for limitless creativity, enabling you to craft unique content that can range from educational and informative to entertaining and whimsical. 

This type of content attracts a wide audience from children to adults. You can even repurpsose existing animations with new voiceovers and context, abiding by fair use policies of course. 

The Infographics Show is just one example of an animation channel you can create. The opportunities are endless when it comes to animations. 

5. Archaeology Channel

A faceless channel like this offers a wealth of content, from historical insights and archaeological findings to explorations of ancient cultures and sites. 

A channel like this can be presented through engaging graphics, animations, and stock footage, eliminating the need for an on-camera host.

With a voiceover, you can narrate captivating stories and facts, making complex subjects interesting to watch and learn.

Amazing Stock is a great example of an automated Archaeology channel

6. ASMR Channel

An ASMR channel (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response) is another great idea for an automated YouTube channel because of its focus on sound rather than visual elements.

ASMR appeals to a wide audience seeking relaxation, stress relief, and a unique sensory experience. While you don't need to go on camera, there may be some investment required if you are going to make your own sounds such as high-quality recording equipment and a camera. Although, your phone camera would likely suffice.

To see an example of an ASMR channel where the creator doesnt go on cam, check out ASMR Soap. The creator's hands are in the shot but not her face. You could do something similar.

7. Book Summaries Channel

A book summaries channel is where you would summarize an existing book that you have read. It's best to identify popular or trending books across different genres so that you can be assured to get traffic.

Creating an automated channel like this is going to require a lot more work than just copy and paste because it's going to require some thought from you and your opinions. However, you can use animation or whiteboard videos to copy and paste into your videos for visuals.
