Video Monetization Space Should Heat Up with in the Mix

Clearly there are a ton of companies that are trying to monetize your video for you. While they’re at it, they hope to take a piece of that transaction and keep themselves in the black.
Google New Logo For YouTube :)Proper video licensing and video monetization is no easy prospect. Take a look at the excerpt from the post below on Youtube’s attempt to monetize over a billion videos that are streamed EVERY DAY! It’s not easy, even for almighty Google.
And that brings me to and their desire to jump into the video money making machine. With their self proclaimed title as The Official Licensor of online video, is plans to provide content owners with the ability to sell, buy and rent their copyrighted video content.
And I’m attempting to get hired by Vidli to become their next Social Media Person. Should you find this post interesting perhaps you could take 37 seconds or so, and help Vidli hire James D Kirk (that’s me, BTW πŸ˜‰ )

Partner content at the heart of YouTube monetization strategy

This means the vast majority of videos on YouTube have absolutely no advertising at all, because the company is only comfortable serving advertising against what it calls partner content. According to the partnerships qualifications and FAQ, people or organisations applying to be a YouTube partner they must meet the following requirements:

  • You create original videos suitable for online streaming.
  • You own or have express permission to use and monetise all audio and video content that you upload – no exceptions.
  • You regularly upload videos that are viewed by thousands of YouTube users.

How Could Monetize a Video of Blue Footed Boobies?

Just a quickie post today before I get to brave the elements (and worse, holiday shoppers!) During my morning reading routine I came across this way too cute video of an actual mating dance between two Blue Footed Boobies. It is possibly the most bizarre and cutest thing I’ve seen in quite some time. Betting it will be for you as well. If you aren’t able to see the video, here’s the link to the Blue Footed Booby Mating Dance on YouTube.

Now, if plumdiggity, instead of just posting that video up on Youtube, had used, The Official Video Licensor, they might have been able to make some money.
I’m not sure how many views it will take, but if nearly 40,000 people are interested in the video content you create, you can bet some of them are going to be willing to pay to see it.
And this is where Vidli comes in. The company is nearing its launch and has opened up beta invitation sign ups. They are also looking for a Social Media Person to bring on board. As such they’ve concocted a unique contest for folks like me to garner support from great folks like you. If you can take 37 seconds or less and click through to sign up for a FREE beta invitation, you’d be doing me the HUGEST favor.
You won’t regret it. Honest. And think of all those adorable little blue footed boobies just waiting for your love and affection! πŸ˜‰

Who's Your True Blue Booby,

Tonight after some holiday shopping to pick up materials for making some AWESOME gifts for Mom, Sister, and Niece (pics to post before too long. And don’t worry, my family doesn’t read my blogs πŸ™ ), I decided to whip up a Twitter Archive.
I’d been following @Andrea_r‘s conversation about the Twitter Digest plugin and got interested in the concept of archiving my tweets so I could access them past the 7 days or so that Twitter allows you access.
A couple of days ago, Ron (@WPMUguru) posted up a fix to the Twitter Digest plugin allowing it to operate correctly on WPMU:

Andrea was looking for a Twitter digest plugin so that she could start making a permanent backup of her tweets because the twitter API only provides access to the last 3200 tweets. The plugin she asked me to look at was Twitter Digest by Tim Beck. The reason she asked me to look at it was that it the option page did not save the settings in WordPress MU.

Rock and roll! So, I decided to add a new subdmain to the WPMU install and hook things up. Now you if you hit you can marvel πŸ˜‰ at the wonder.
Basically, there’s the WPMU subdomain with the P2 Theme running the look and feel. I’ve got Twitter Digest (v. 1.8.3b the MU enhanced version) grabbing the tweets every morning early and posting to the site.
Finally I also installed Photo Dropper so I can go back to the site every few days and add some nice visual stuff.
And that’s what drove this post, especially its title. As I continue to earn your trust and eventually your support in my pursuit of the Social Media Gig with I was messing over at my twitter repository site and decided to post up a test from the front page (as per P2 theme). I did a search on Flickr for blue footed boobies and found that lovely little rascal you see above.
Have to say, they are really strange, yes? But adorable nonetheless!
Hey, thanks for taking the time to check out this post. And if you are feeling rather altruistic today, why not take about 37 seconds or so and sign up for the FREE beta invite for the new video monetization service that will be launching early next year. I’m buying drinks for everyone that’s helped me get the gig (if, of course I get the gig!)
Seriously though, thank you for your time. You have my sincere gratitude! Have a wonderful weekend.
