How to make money with Youtube, Metacafe and Dailymotion
1. Metacafe - This is a great way to generate a steady stream of passive income for yourself. You can make videos on subjects you are passionate and knowledgeable about and reap the rewards by simply getting as many people as possible to view your videos. When uploading the video, make sure you check the "Yes, I want to submit my video to Producer Rewards". You are entitled to earn up to $5 for each 1000 views of your video, and you will receive your first payout of $100 once you reach the 20,000-view threshold. However, videos containing pornography and obscene language are automatically disqualified. In addition, your content has to be original and unique. You can't just try to profit from others' works, especially if they are copyrighted. If you already have a firm grasp of what people in general are looking for on video-sharing sites, you should be able to get quite a decent amount of views for your vids.
2. Dailymotion - You can simply join the Publishers Network and start to integrate videos to your blogs or websites. You will get a share of the revenue generated from the ads shown on the Dailymotion videos that you have shared on your sites. It's a pretty easy method to make some quick bucks out of blogging, but do not just post a random vid on your blog and expect people to view it. You can help to promote the video by expressing your views and opinions about the video itself or just post a blog entry that is appropriate and relevant to what is in the video. If you can't, at least make an effort to give a brief description of what it is all about.
3. Youtube - You need to have an Adsense account before you can opt to monetise your videos on Youtube. However, it can be hard to make money on Youtube, given the fact that most people tend not to show much interest in the ads being displayed alongside your vids as they are usually more concerned about the actual content of the vid itself. It's pay per click, which means you might not get a single cent even if your vids get an average of 1000 views per day. If you are lucky, you might get a few clicks here and there from viewers who accidentally clicked on the ad in a bid to close it. That being said, it's still worth a try.
