eefoof Pays You to Upload Your Videos
July 5, 2006 by Gaman
eefoof.com a new video sharing site promises to pay you by sharing a percentage of the site’s revenue depending on how many viewers a video clip attracts.
Analysts will want to know whether eefoof can sustain itself by cutting videographers in on revenues. But at a time when many video-sharing sites are looking for compelling content, the payment offer could give Eefoof an edge in attracting superior videos.
Eefoof’s offer goes like this: Once a month the company tallies the number of page views for each submission. The company then looks at overall traffic and calculates what percentage of the page views was generated by each submission. Ad revenue is divided accordingly.
“Once your account exceeds $25, we will send you a PayPal transfer,” the company wrote on its site. Specific percentages weren’t dislosed on the Eefoof Web site. Representatives from eefoof.com could not be reached for comment on Monday.
I think it’s still a long way to go before eefoof can really compete with YouTube. Somehow, I am skeptical how such revenue sharing model could cover hosting fees and still make money for the company.
