Make Money from Your Videos

Scott Kirsner at CinemaTech has been compiling a list of Web sites that enable video producers to get paid for their work.

Some of these will be familiar to you (Revver, Atom Entertainment), others less so (I hadn’t previously heard of Panjea). Some are geared to short-form content, and others will support selling a full-length feature. Some generate revenue through advertising, and others through paid rentals or downloads. I’ve tried to explain which sites demand exclusive rights to your content; all the rest are looser, allowing you to sell your stuff in multiple marketplaces. YouTube, though wildly popular, isn’t on the list, since it’s more of a platform for gaining exposure than making money.

  1. Thank you for providing this list. Imagine teaching, instruction or basic “how to” videos – that can help you make money by bringing in a nice quasi-residual income without too much time or effort. Brilliant.
