People are now selling their YouTube channels that are generating profit.
Would you buy a YouTube channel earning $500-$2000 per month ?
And I ask this as a serious question because a wave is likely to come soon.
My answer and thoughts on the matter:
I might buy a YouTube channel of a user who's successful and fueled by their own image/self-focused videos. As long as I also received ownership of commercial rights to User's videos, it's an easy flip and if they continue to grow in any way, you can likely re-sell the footage to other networks like Break.com/webuyvideos and if popular enough, possibly a TMZ. I'd make sure I got all the videos original files sent to me on a Hard Drive as well.
What I would Not buy and a forewarning to some Warriors........... Channels that have content obviously impossible for the seller to have commercial rights. To get that channel shut down, all it takes is 1 warning / flag from a user. If a media company, which owns footage contacts YouTube, not even a guess of if you're going down.. YOU WILL GO DOWN. Also, I see no greater value beyond what's earned on YouTube.
Without saying too much, would love to hear others opinons.
