In case you still trying to figure out what to do with all those videos you’ve uploaded on youtube, the company has a feature that allows you to make money off of advertising revenue run on your videos on their site – as long as you own the videos and not copied from someone else. Here is what you need to do on youtube/Google to make extra couple thousands a month and how to leverage your awesomize.me pages to double that:
1) Come up with a catchy title for your Videos:
Once your videos start getting some traction, YouTube will send you an email with this subject line: “Apply for revenue sharing for your video“. Make sure to upload videos on regular basis and keep on distributing them to social media channels you are members of (Facebook, Google+, Twitter, LinkedIn,etc.)
2) Apply through YouTube’s Partner Program page
You’ll be able to turn on revenue sharing off advertising for all your videos, You will even be able to rent out your videos.
3) Create a Google AdSense Account
So, Google can send you the revenue to your bank account.
4) Once you’ve been approved by youtube as a partner and your Google AdSense account is set up, here is the tough part: Out of million of other videos on youtube, how do you make yours to stand out and to get more clickthorugh on your Ads run on your videos?
With some good tagging (assuming you know how) and sharing your videos with your network of online friends on other social media channels (depending on your quality friends), you might have some luck.
