Got Myself A HD Camera For YT Whats the best way to bank?

I want to get on YouTube so I got myself a $800 camera and need some help. I want to show my face and not make videos where I share screen.

Problem is I don't want YT money for views so what's the best way I can sell myself to earn? I was thinking about buying amazon products and reviewing them but then again… Amazon only pays that 6% and you don't get to build a list while you send them buying customers.

Is there a better way? I'm trying to think out the box here but would love for you…
