How to make money in video editing

Hi

I am not a professional but semi-professional video editor. Do you think there is any money to be made providing that kind of services.

I have seen sites like fiverr and freelancer, but they seem to be very "cheap". Considering that video editing can be a tedious job.

Can anyone suggest a decent paying gig resource?

    Check with odesk.com there you can find value of your work. But you will have to prove your self by taking different tests.

    I think a niche exists around what you want to do. Build a site around your service, and also join freelance sites too. You could probably create an information product about your video editing expertise and make money from this.

    Money to be made? I don't know if you can make a full-time living editing videos. Maybe you can, maybe you can't. You might be able to find an answer by consulting the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Outlook Handbook. As a point of reference, I'm defining "full time living" as grossing upwards of $2000 a month and more. What you can do is check out your competition in the "Gigs" and "Services" section of Craigslist to see how the pro's and semi-pro's market their service. I'd also recommend going to Odesk and Freelancer to find out how strong the demand is for a video editor. Depending on the job title, the Occupational Outlook Handbook might be a pretty good government resource to reference when you're trying to ascertain the demand for a certain occupation.

    Do you have a demo reel of previous editing gigs? Create a site featuring your work and update your Elance and Freelance.com portfolios. Also look at Mandy.com for job listings in the TV/film biz.

    Video editing is EXTREMELY important. I work in the radio industry and we have video editor on staff for all of our WEBSITE video and TV commercial production. I'm sure you can set-up a freelance business locally and make some pretty decent dough editing for local businesses and entrepreneurs.

    Do you shoot video too? That would be a great ADD-ON. Also, you could host it and make some money on an up-charge.
