How to Make Money From Your Videos Using YouTube
February 28, 2007 by Gaman
Vishen of MindValleyLabs has a post up where he shares how he discovered a way to make quick bucks using YouTube.
His method is not new but it’s nice to see someone documented it in a way like what Vishen did.
It’ll work better if you have an existing list of contacts to email to where you can jump start the promotion of your video. If you blog is already popular, your existing readers could boost your video popularity as well. This will cause your video’s popularity on YouTube to go up faster.
Once it becomes one of the top watched videos of the day, more and more people will start watching it.
You can include your site URL on YouTube page showing the video and more often than not, some viewers will end up visiting your blog.
They are pretty targeted bunch and since your video has done the job of preselling your products or services, monetizing this traffic would not be too hard.
Vishen claims that they are making 76 cents for every person who watched their YouTube video. That’s pretty good when you compare with how much you earn per click on average from AdSense.
