Anyone fancy a YouTube style service that pays you cold hard cash for your video blogging/short film making/general videosmithery skills?
We thought you might and are sure you will be delighted to learn about Revver, a video uploading site that shares ad-revenue with the video creators:
To use Revver, content creators simply upload a video on Revver.com. Revver then matches each video with an ad, and our proprietary tracking technology tracks the video wherever it is viewed. Revver was the first to extend its network across not one, but three platforms — broadband, broadcast and mobile. Any ad revenue made when the video is viewed on one of these platforms is then split 50/50 with the content creator and Revver.
Revenue opportunities are not limited to content creators. We also share revenues with the syndicator who distributes the video. A Revver user who shares a “Revverized” video earns 20 percent of the ad revenue just by sharing the video with other Revver members.
Sound like your thing? Fancy getting paid to be the next Ze Frank, Ask a Ninja or LonelyGirl15? A bit of a no brainer surely, though it is worth mentioning that Revver are not the first to attempt to attract users with this model.
Could YouTube add something similar to its service? It seems unlikely that it will ever need to; sites that opt for the reward route however could end up attracting enough users to have the big YT looking over its shoulder before long.
