How To Monetize Video Views For Your Small Businesses

How To Monetize Video Views For Your Small Businesses

1. Include a Call To Action

Always include a call to action at the end of every video. For example, “Go to to get your free training on how to start a blog.” Giving away a free ebook, training video or helpful information in return for a prospects’ email info can be a great way to build your database and increase your sales. If you’re not giving away free stuff in your videos, you’re missing out on a lot of new business.

2. AdSense

If you’re signed up with Google AdSense and host your videos on YouTube, you can monetize your videos with Google’s Ads. Expect to earn anywhere from $1 to $5 per 1,000 views

3. Get A Sponsor

If you’re running a web TV show using video, you can get sponsorships for your videos and use the sponsorship money to grow your business and your brand.

iPhone Video Hero Review – How To Shoot Videos Like A Pro

Okay so I recently found this AWESOME training program on how to shoot videos like a pro – just using an iPhone. Well, since I have an iPhone and use it to shoot most of my videos, I thought I’d try it out.

I was blown away!!

iPhone Video Hero is the bomb. I’ve never studied videography myself so when it comes to what mic to use or how to properly light a video, I was friggin’ clueless. This training program showed me EVERYTHING I needed to know about how to shoot videos professionally (or semi-professionally). Now, to be honest, I do not want to be a professional videographer at all.

But video marketing is huge now and it’s already become a huge source of traffic, leads and sales for me so I just thought I’d invest in my knowledge a litle bit and learn more to make my videos really shine. iPhone Video Hero definitely helped!

Anyways, I recorded this screen capture video inside the iPhone Video Hero product so that you can see for yourself what it’s like. Check it out below!
