How I make $800+ per day with mobile video sites

Mobile video is an untapped market that can make you thousands per month. The mobile market is growing at a tremendous rate due to smartphones and tablet devices. But not many people are taking advantage at the fact that most video content out there are using flash, however mobile devices like the iPad and iPhone cannot view these video. So many people looking for video content on their phone are left in the dark.

There are a few ways you can build a website based on mobile videos. You can pick a niche such as funny videos, video game content, trailers etc. You can convert these videos yourself using Xilisoft or another converter and hosting the files yourself. But this way will cost you loads for storage fees and bandwidth.

Therefore I suggest you uploading videos to VidSkip.com or Videobam.com. Both of these sites will encode your videos to mobile format that works on hundreds of mobile devices such as iPhones, Blackberry, Android phones, Windows phones, etc.

Right now I am making thousands of dollars each month by making niche mobile video sites. I use ad networks like Jumptap, Admob, Tapit, Nexage, Smaato, & vDopia to monetize my traffic. I believe that it is truly an untapped market and many people can make hundreds if not thousands too.
Here are some stats of one of my websites to show you guys the potential of this niche:

    I use wordpress with a basic theme called iWPhone

    But any wordpress theme that is optimized for mobile should work.

    Since mobile is a pretty new niche, the best way is to use SEO to advertise the site. It isn't that big of a competitive landscape so basic SEO can go a long way. Also social media like twitter and facebook produce a lot of traffic.

    Targeting keywords such as: mobile "keyword", iphone "keyword", ipad "keyword" garners a lot of traffic without much competition.

    These results took me about a year to get. So it isn't an instant gold mine. You have to work for it and slowly build your traffic.

    Serious cash tusen, I did some testing back in October with Adfonics still a member there so I can go back and start campaigns again. I was using Peerfly and another of my own products to sell using Adfonics. Your results are impressive to say the least. Seems I should start using the WPMobile Pro themes for myself as well.

    Sounds VERY interesting. Do you register a .mobi for these when so many of the .coms might be taken, or does in not seem to matter much? Also, content - I realize they're video, but where do you pull them from originally?

    Thanks

    What's your eCPM at these ad networks?
    I really haven't heard about anybody making money with such method and this seems to be really good money.
    PS. Can I ask you some more questions on skype?
    Our eCPM are usuallt $.70-80 but January is a slow month so it is around $.40-50. However, we have 3 ads on each page. So in total per 1000 page views we can earn about $2

    Yes WPMobile Pro themes is also a very good theme to use for wordpress. I never tried Adfonics, I should look into it.

    I highly recommend using .com since no one really knows .mobi. Also the content can be from anywhere like youtube and other video hosts

    Maybe I don't get what your saying...

    YouTube and Vimeo videos show up fine on my iphone/ipad and use these embeds (javascript or raw html) on my own mobile sites.

    Unless you mean you want the video to play directly on the mobile site without opening in a new window?

    How mush do you spend on your ads in relation to how much you bring in?

    Thanks a lot!!

    Coming from the adult "biz" i have some pretty nice experiences with mobile websites.
    I still own a couple, and together they gather around 15k-20k visitors daily. I do have access to around 50k visitors (with mediabuys) but those are all focused on the adult biz.

    Would it be possible for you to PM me one of your sites so i can get an idea of what makes money in the mainstream area of the mobile side?

    We are currently setting up a new mainstream company, that develops and designs mobile websites for clients. If anyone is interested in something like that please feel free to ask for pricing structures in a PM (so i dont hijack this thread to much). We also do custom WP designs both for mobile and regular.

    Thanks for your answers!

    several questions please

    1. how many videos per page?
    2. do you change the description and titles?
    3. do you put one video per post or several
    4. Do you add original content?
    5. how do you monetize? mobile cpa, adsense, admob ads?
    6. for ranking do you get better results if you have keyword domain or it's ok with keywords in subdomains
    7. does it have to be on wordpress? what about simple html mobile site
    8. I understand that you use VidSkip.com and Videobam.com just for flash videos, as there is no problem embedding youtube videos
    9. would also like to see a sample site, yours or one you can recommend

    Thanks

      Sure, but obviously there is no motive here since he is freely sharing this info...

      That being said, I would also like to see his site! Care to share OP?

      What about copyright if using videos from Youtube etc? Admob definitely addresses this you cannot use copyright content and video is included as content?

    How much does it cost to get into a market like this, as far as start up costs?
    How long did it take for you to start seeing some money come in?
    And someone else asked but I'm curious on how much you spend on advertising and how much you profit from your campaigns?

    Got my attention.

    Read the article that masquerades as a "forum post" that is posted by a user with only 6 posts, probably copy-pasted from Ezine, doesn't say who they are or make any effort to relate to other forum members..

    Lost attention.

    Carry on...

    You can even monetize with CPA or content locking offers. Thanks for sharing your strategy with us. This looks promising with some of our own twists to the strategy.
