How to monetize my youtubevideo?

26 replies
Hi Warriors,

My youtubechannel gets 1800 uv/Day. It's about the Need for Speed Game.
I tried Cpa offers(xbox360 offers, ), clickbankoffers, amazonlinks, but barely get a conversion. Now i'm trying a product from Marketbay.

Maybe it's the position of the ad, the colour, bad traffic?
What do I wrong? Somebody who can help me?

You can look it up on youtube. Search for "need for speed undercover" and i'm in the top 5 position with the name 'IGNGameVids'
(I can't post the link at this moment)


Regards,
Steven

      email submit offers are mostly for the usa market.
      And out of the 1800/day there are only 200 usa visitors.
      Maybe, are there any offers(game related) who cover whole of Europe?

        You can find offers for UK too. I think ppl are too lazy to fill out long surveys or buy anything. (via your youtube ad) :S
        I suggest you to try US email submit offers ~2-3 days, maybe it will work.

        (sorry for my english Oo)


        Good luck stev!


        Edit: I think ppl who are search NFS videos, won't download poor 2D games or join to browser games. Try find an NFS related offer here: offervault.com

          Thanks for your answer typoo999 .(my english is way far from good :-) )

          In my opinion the problem with cpa offers is: Most of them are limited to 1 country. And my traffic is coming from almost every country in Europe).
          So if I choose UK for instance, 80% of my traffic can't do anything with the offer.

            Then you should try international offers, search some of them via offervault.com
            (Free Lotto, Browser games, etc.)
            Maybe they will conv.

            Good luck!

    Hey.

    Actually in tat case as you saying, if you want to monetize all viewer from all countries. dn you must go for affiliate product in stead of CPA offer. and if you wanna use only CPA offer dn there is an offer named I think "GAMEFLY" (I am not sure) and for CPA Network try AZOOGLEADS they have good offers even you can try blam ads too but they do not have high payout gaming offers but they do have international offers but payout is low.

    Try to think of what else gamers do online besides game and watch videos about gaming.

    Then rotate a couple different offers trying to find the niche that suits your traffic best.

      set up a blog with adsense and affiliate offers and all the rest of your videos... get people to your site and get them to look at lots and lots of pages and become interactive.

      give them game tips and stuff like that as well as email and zip sub offers.

    Create a product out of it if you have spare change 2000 views a day can make you a few hundred a day. If you know a lot about the game set up a landing page and sell a cheat/ strategy guide?

    As others have suggested, try rotating a few offers until you can find a good converter.

    Also, maybe try adding a geo rotator so you can send the various countries to specific offers.

    Hello Steven,
    You can surely point them to a website that has CPA adds (surveys). I actually make good money from that, and it seems you have a great start

    Leverage click-able annotations on your videos to lead to another video that explains more of what a person needs to do to get... X... or whatever.

    You NEED to give them a reason to head to another site, or sign up for an email list.

    I have been working on ways to monetize my channel too.

    http://www.youtube.com/xboxcheater. I have 2k subscribers, and 3k views per day.

    I am currently testing CPA offers, but those are hit and miss.

    I would also recommend using Tube Toolbox to gather more friends and subscribers etc.

    Group up with other video content producers in your niche. Also helps increase exposure and gain more subscribers.

    I will also put a link to another thread in here when I find it. It's a guy who ran a CPA offer test on YouTube, and did really well.

    EDIT: Here is the link: http://www.warriorforum.com/ad-netwo...nt-worked.html


    I don't know if you can see the annotation, but it is a CTA to go to another video where I explain to the viewers that they can get free stuff by spreading my videos around, and visiting my site.

    Hope that helps!

    You Tube video campaigns can personally brand you as an expert on topics that are more fully explored in companion ezine articles that you publish simultaneously. This is a coordinated effort that is designed to drive You Tube visitors to your ezine articles for further information. At the same time, ezine article readers are being driven to your You Tube videos for a more intimate and personal review of your topic.
    I encourage my clients to introduce people to their topics and ideas at the same time that they introduce themselves as go-to leaders that people interested in these topics and ideas will want to consult and work with. At the heart of this strategy is developing your approach to a topic by coordinating a distinct campaign to share particular insight or information through your own unique and personal perspective.

        The software isn't as important as the format. Here is an article that will help you:

        File formats : Getting Started - YouTube Help

        YouTube accepts pretty much any format, but they do have preferences.

        Whatever software you feel most comfortable with is what you should stick with.

        YouTube does tend to chomp it up a bit so don't worry if you produce a big file. (usually h.264l, and MP4 format)

    We have a special gateway code for content locking the youtube videos, and if you have the core files you can encode them & host them too.
