I have been considering the possibility of creating videos and posting them at various video sites like youtube and revver for some time. After hearing about the mom that posted a short less than minute video of her small son making a funny face after she sneezed and was able to fund her sons entire college fund from the revenue generated from that one video I am sold on the idea.
As with many cell phone apps that are free to download these videos generate their income from the ads that run on the videos. Every time someone watches the videos a add is either running at the bottom during the video or you must watch the ad before watching the video.
I wonder how many of you have funny or stupid videos that they could post to these video sites and make a ton of money. Realistically few people make much more than a few $1 but if you get lucky and it become popular you could hit the jackpot.
Just because it is not easy or common for most videos to get thousands or millions of hits doesn’t mean you shouldn’t post them and try. There are more people doing this than you think and some make a full time living on their video income.
In any case it’s worth a shot. Next time your see something funny or unusual record it and post it to a video site, you never know.
