More than 90 percent of my online-videos have been seen via YouTube, but I haven’t yet seen revenue from the YouTube Partnership program (and when I do receive my first check, I’m not able to disclose the amount).
I am allowed to discuss my earnings on other sites. I’ve made more than $2500.00 on Revver, and more than $4,000.oo on Metacafe. Here’s the Nalts Revver channel, and here’s the Nalts Metacafe channel.
Metacafe has delivered on its promise to help provide a secondary (if not primary) income to select amateurs, with the leader being Kipkay, who has earned more than $75,000 on Metacafe to date. With this one video (turning a flashlight into a laser pointer) he’s made more than I have via ad revenue.
The folks at Metacafe have been extremely patient as we’ve slowly rolled out a new series called “Metacafe Unflitered,” which features Metacafe artists that have profited on the site. I co-host a series with Angela Calman from MediaMogirl. Angela and I met while she was doing a story about Metacafe, and then collaborated on a series of news reports where I played a dysfunctional weather guy. My favorite is when I got struck by lightening.
To date, we’ve shot several episodes of MetacafeUnfiltered, and plan to feature some of the top successful artists that have turned a hobby into a profession. Here’s the first episode featuring Brandon Mcconnell, aka SpacePainting. The California artist (see SpacePainting.com) has earned more than $20K on Metacafe, and his online fame has increased his sales and bookings.
We’re soon featuring Magic Roy, who has turned his love for magic into more than $15,000 of Metacafe Rewards income, and also boosted his magic career. Got a favorite Metacafe Producer (preferably a popular one) you’d like to learn about? Post below or comment on Metacafe’s blog.
