YouTube Partner? Sure Thing!
On Friday, Jun 24, 2011 at 10:34 AM I received an email from YouTube. The heading, as you can see above read – “Your video has been submitted for revenue sharing“.
I was more surprised than anyone else to receive this letter and immediately became suspicious thinking it must be a scam of some sort. So I read the entire email through and through and checked out all the links on the page. They all were legit YouTube.com links.
Which video was eligible for revenue sharing? My video that I mentioned in this post: “A Favor To Ask: Help Me Blog For & Road Trip With Mobilicity CEO Dave Dobbin”. The video, as mentioned in that post and located at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DAByWNK6z7g, is an attempt to get myself on a 15 day roadtrip with Mobilicity CEO Dave Dobbin as the official CEO Blogger. It is because of you folks and my friends on Twitter that YouTube noticed this video and asked me if I would like to apply for revenue sharing.
I did not expect this to happen but if YouTube wants to offer me a chance to make some money from my video – and the ads that YouTube is putting in it anyway – wouldn’t I be a fool not to accept the offer? I wonder what will come of this but I wanted to thank everyone who reads this blog and has spread word of my Mobilicity CEO Blogger contest entry video and “Liked” it – I have 23 Likes and 3 Dislikes (can’t please everyone all the time!). This might be where I start making that awesome-cool ‘Internet money’ I keep hearing so much about…but I very highly doubt it. My video still only has 242 views. I wonder what YouTube’s analytics tell it about my video that makes it considered ‘viral’. Will I ever know?
Here’s some more info on my video as it stands today in terms of the “Insight”. I hope YouTube doesn’t get pissed off that I am sharing this info…I don’t see why they would as it is info which is for my benefit…although now that I am looking at the image below I am thinking maybe I should set my Privacy settings for the stats to Private (They’re public now for some reason). Then again, why do I care? I just want to win the contest! But I digress…
I hope you are all having a fantastic weekend!
