Make money by sharing videos

The Internet has created new opportunities to make money---not just professionals, but amateurs as well. All you need to be successful with Metacafe is a little bit of Web savvy and a funny video. Learn how you can make money on Metacafe.

Step 1

Visit Metacafe's website (see Resources below for link). Scroll down to the bottom of the Metacafe home page and click on the link that says "Content Partners" under the heading "Work With Us." You will need to fill out a basic questionnaire (name, website, email address). The Metacafe team will respond to you with an email to help you set up your content partner account.

Step 2

Begin uploading videos to the site. The videos that perform the best are user-created and usually humorous. Developing a niche is a good way to ensure a loyal following. Metacafe pays its partners $5.00 per 1,000 page views. The more interesting your videos are, the more money they can make.

Step 3

Market the videos you have uploaded to Metacafe. One of the best ways to do this is by having a blog that links to your Metacafe videos. Use Web forums to help spread the word. The goal is to increase visitors to your videos and keep them coming back for more. You will receive an email statement showing visitors to your videos and a monthly payment through PayPal.
