YouTube’s popularity has grown tremendously and so has its profits. Google saw great potential from that site and so it bought it out for over a billion dollars a while back. Now as a regular internet surfer you can have a piece of that pie indirectly. If you offer YouTube videos on your blog then you can actually make a good amount of money from it.
You may think that you have to download YouTube videos and upload them to your server(s) and use up your bandwidth, but you really don’t have to. Instead, you will be using YouTube’s bandwidth and that’s it.
First thing is first, go to AdBrite.com and sign up for a publisher’s account. You will be profiting from the AdBrite’s publisher program. They payout after every 30-60 days so, if you are serious about making money from videos then you should continue this for three months.
AdBrite doesn’t host the videos on their servers, instead they allow you to link from a destination on the web. Your video, in flv format, is then is played on AdBrite’s flv player with the advertisements. With AdBrite’s video player the ads show up for few seconds before the video begins to play and then disappears. If you have a site which has a huge amount of video audiences then you will see significant earnings, because they don’t pay you as much as AdSense. So, if you get little traffic then you won’t see much, because they don’t pay for views, AdBrite pays when the ads are clicked on. I wrote a previous post on AdBrite’s InVideo for those who are new to this blog.
Go to the page of the YouTube video that you want to display and copy the first link that is displayed on the right side of the video.
Go to KeepVid.com and paste that link, which you just copied, to the box and press “Download”.
A download link should show up below after you hit the “Download” button. Copy the link of where it says “Download Link”; do not download the video, just copy the location of the link to your clipboard.
Then go AdBrite.com and log-in to your account and click on “Publisher” (purple), then below that click on “InVideo” (blue), then click on “Add Video” (red).
Now on the Add Video page enter the information that they ask. Make sure you add the keywords in the advertisement field that relates to the video you chose and press “Save and Get Code”.
Now this is the hardest part….waiting. It takes about 10-20 minutes for the video to work after you embed the video on your page and publish it. It may work in the preview field after you have submitted the code, but it won’t work on other sites until 10 minutes or so have passed. Therefore, before you publish the page with the video, wait at least 10 minutes or so.
Now that you know this money making method with YouTube, try it out with other video sites such as DailyMotion.com or Break.com.
