One of the most influential websites on Web 2.0 right now is Youtube. Not only is it a great place for people to watch and share videos, but companies can also utilize the site to market their products and even earn some revenue.
Through the Youtube partners program, thousands of youtube members actually make money off of their uploaded videos. Google, as the parent company of Youtube, issues a cheque every month to member’s whose videos or channel reach a certain threshold in terms of subscribers and/ or video views.
Through the use of socialblade.com, it is possible to get a rough estimate of the analytical data behind the success of top youtube accounts. For example, freddiew, a very popular member, is estimated to make between $800 – $7,000 per day based on the number of his video views and subscribers.
If you or your company can generate interesting videos on a weekly basis and gather a large enough subscriber base, youtube videos could potentially be another source of revenue.
