But that’s about to change because in this post I’ve combined a list of YouTube video ideas with actual titles that you can copy and paste to help you post your next YouTube video.

Just as the name suggests, these YouTube content ideas are simple to create and edit. You don’t need to spend hours creating or editing. The reason I love these video ideas is that they have the ability to gain massive subscribers with minimal effort. And that they are highly dependent on a person’s reaction/ personality.

They are: Prank Videos, listicle videos & video combinations.

Now let’s get into the titles of these YouTube video ideas in each section.

Prank Videos.

These video ideas are super easy to film as you just place hidden cameras and wait for the reaction of people around. And when it’s time to edit, all you have to do is cut out the fluff, add in funny gifs and voila, you have a video ready in 2 hours.

Popular YouTube Video Idea Titles

10.  Moving Vlogs.

If you’re moving into another city or into your dorm in uni or into another apartment, then be sure to pick up your camera and film the entire process.

According to Google trends, this type of video idea has an all time high throughout the year.

And the best part about these types of YouTube videos is that you can create a series out of your entire moving process.

All you have to do is create a playlist once you’re done with your moving series and it will generate your YouTube channel a ton of subscribers and views months after you published your videos.

The only problem with these types of videos is that they have a timeline. You can’t move all the time so you can’t create moving vlogs every month unless you’re a moving company.

11. House Tours.

People absolutely love house tours, whether it’s empty house tours or furnished house tours. You can always check Google trends to see the best season to post this kind of content to get the most traction.

12. Day In The Life Vlogs.

These YouTube videos ideas are famous for getting thousands of videos views. But if you’re just starting out on YouTube, this type of content idea should not be in your content calendar as you do not have subscribers who are genuinely interested in your life. But if you are famous outside of YouTube, then this can be the gamechanger for your YouTube channel.

People absolutely love these videos. And over the years, the interest of these YouTube videos has remained constant. So if you’re the person who does the grocery shopping in your house, then you should consider showing a grocery shopping experience.

If you’re uncomfortable with filming yourself shopping, you can try another closely related video idea called grocery haul.

In these types of videos, if you spend more, you get more views. If you spend an unbelievably low amount of money and show that you survive on that, you’ll also gain a ton of views.

These are more of sit down videos but they involve eating food and talking about interesting topics. Over the past two years, these types of videos have really gained a ton of traction. 

And if you’re a vlogger, you might want to put this YouTube video idea in your content calendar.

There are different types of mukbang videos like ASMR, spicy food, seafood, and fast food.

You can always create a twist to it and include the cooking experience before the actual Mukbang if you’re the one who makes the food.

16.  Reaction Videos.

Now these video ideas are amazing because they show people’s reaction to their own content or to other people’s content. And the best part about having these types of videos is that you’ll be able to put ads on the videos unlike the other compilation videos.
