The world is minting money over the web, and you are probably doing nothing but buffering videos. Do not worry, and waste no more time just uploading useless videos, but earn grands and grands out of it with effective uploading. For innocent internet users who are still unaware of what I'm talking about, this will blow your mind! Now, just upload a video that catches the eye of thousands of YouTube visitors, and they will pay you. Don't believe me? Well, try it out yourself. However, before being a ninja, better know the basics of how to earn money with YouTube.

Now, if you think I'm not serious, you should check this one out. When the search giant is getting millions and millions of hits everyday, it would definitely want to reward its users with the help of various perks. That's where one can make easy money online with YouTube's feature of uploading their videos. These videos may vary from movie clips to your customized home-made videos, provided they get enough hits. Apart from that, there are many ways by which you get paid for just watching videos. Isn't that all exciting? Let's take a whack of how this is done.

Process Of Uploading and Earning

Have you heard of Pay Per Click advertising? If you haven't, let me tell you that when a large number of people visit video hosting sites such as YouTube, they tend to browse through a number of videos, and click on each. The more the number of clicks, the more you mint money. In other words, each time some user clicks on your video, you earn. So, after an eternity of wandering throughout the web to find easy ways of making cash online, why wouldn't you want to try out this one too? You surely will. So, grab a good quality video camera, and think of the most creative ideas of making a video that targets a huge number of audience. An interesting, terrific, and, in many cases, an intellectual video clip is bound to attract the attention of the countless number of users who are regular visitors of this site.

How to Upload a Video

For uploading, just sign up for free on this site, and set a unique username and password for yourself. Go through the tutorials to learn the basics. Watch videos that have more than a million views, and analyze as to why they have such a large number of hits.

After successfully learning about every teeny-weeny option, it's time to upload your video. First things first, read the FAQ on the website, and ensure that you hold total rights of uploading a personal video. Make sure that the people or places featured in your video have no problems regarding the upload, and you are also giving non-exclusive rights. Non-exclusive rights means you have no problem if a third party wants to promote, use, or link to your video on their site or media.

Secondly, you video should be of appropriate length. If a video is too long or too short, chances of it getting qualified will be lesser. Approximately 5-7 minutes is the ideal length for any video.

Thirdly, upload your own videos. Most of the time, people upload trailers and clips of an upcoming movie (bound to get infinite hits) under the impression that they will surely get some perks and advantages of it. However, this is not the case. The video should be your own, and should abide by all the rules and regulations of the website.

Lastly, refrain from uploading videos associated with nudity, erotica, violence, or content that is just too controversial. A video that is suitable to all kinds of audiences is most preferred by the authorities.

Tips on Earning

Uploading a video and earning out of it may sound very easy, but there is a lot of technicality behind it. You cannot just forget your video after uploading, and sit idle waiting for the corresponding authorities to transfer money into your account. Instead, after uploading your video, you need to go to the homepage of the site, and register to become a partner under programs. For that, you need to have a decent portfolio, and should be a regular visitor as well as user of the website. One of the most lucrative methods is internet advertising. When you are successfully registered as a partner, ads associated with the content of your video will start flickering on all sides of your video. Hence, whatever the website gets from those ads, it will share a particular amount with you. It's interesting, ain't it? On an average, where an original video clip can fetch you up to approximately USD 400, a short-length movie can help you make cool USD 2000.

Okay, while this is all about uploading videos and making easy bucks, there are many external sites on the web who do offer you money for just sitting and watching these videos. The pay-ups aren't that attractive ($0.03 per view), but what the heck? Who wouldn't want to exploit this opportunity of being lazy and get paid? Think of it, when an individual or a company uploads a video on a particular website, they do want millions and millions of hits, which will eventually fetch them money. Hence, the more hits they will get, the more remuneration they'll make, a part of which is paid to you for contributing to the traffic. This is some innovative way, don't you think so?

Remember this anonymous quote, earning money isn't difficult at all. The most difficult thing is to find out ways to earn money! Once you know the interesting ways to make money with the help of the web, you will feel that the world is full of easy money-making ways. People are literally earning wonders out of uploading their videos, which has not only made them popular, but has also given them a chance to interact with global audience. Who knew that a trio of Steve Chen, Chad Hurley, and Jawed Karim (founders of YouTube) could totally transform the way people have broadcast themselves on the web till date?
