Have you ever thought about making money with videos, but do not have enough knowledge and/or equipment to create them at a professional level? Then you might be interested in the method of third-party videos monetization that I will explain in this post.
What will you learn here?
Is it not illegal to use videos created by others?
The short answer is that normally yes, however, in this case you will be able to use them 100% legally.
To give you a more detailed answer, you must take into account what the copyright laws say. If you create a video, no one else has the right to use it on his website. In the same way, you can not use other people’s videos.
However, there is one exception – when the author agrees with this. Then he can upload his videos to some of the online video platforms that allows anyone to embed these videos on their website. For example, to YouTube.
Dailymotion – a good YouTube alternative
Maybe now you will wonder how it is possible. Well, I think you have seen some videos on YouTube, Dailymotion or another online video platform. Have you noticed that from time to time appear ads? Thanks to them, online video platforms make money.
Normally, a portion of their income goes to the video’s author. But in case of Dailymotion, the income is shared between the author and the person who has shown the video on his blog.
How much will you earn?
It all depends on your traffic. The more visitors your blog has, the more videos they will see. The more videos they will see, the more money you will make.
