How to Make Money With a Video Blog

by Contributor

Video blogs are not only fun, but potentially profitable, and you need not have top-of-the-line equipment or extensive expertise. Simply keep a few principles in view and you can quickly begin making money with a video blog.


Get a Webcam with great audio and video playback, if you want repeat visitors. Some people posting video blogs actually use a video camera but this is not necessary to make money. A video camera would just give you better picture and sound.


Post your videos. Signing up with Google Adsense is easy to do and also can be extremely profitable. The way it works is that Google shows ads when people are watching your video. The more clicks and views your video blog receives, the more money you can make. However, if you are having a hard time getting users to visit your site, you might want one that brings traffic to you. One example is YouTube. Millions search YouTube, so if you have a great video blog, there is a chance you can gain subscribers.


Update regularly. One of the quickest ways to lose viewers and money is to update only infrequently. If you update monthly, you might notice you are receiving less traffic. Try to maintain a regular update schedule and post it so users know when to check back. Some of the users might even post your link elsewhere, bringing your blog more views and moving it up the search engine rankings.
