Ca-ching! Cash in on the Online Video Boom

One of the big success stories of the Internet era is online video. Video clips are booming and sites like YouTube enjoy phenomenal levels of traffic.  I love looking at video clips on the Internet and eagerly clicking on the latest ‘must-watch’ video.

I watch everything from the latest movie trailers to my favourite music videos online.  During the course of watching these video clips I often catch various promotional clips as well. This is a fast-growing area of the advertising industry and many businesses are enjoying the traffic and profits generated from promotional videos.

So How Can You Cash In?

There is a lot of money to be made in the world of online video.  This is a diverse area with many different revenue streams.  If you are looking for a new way to make money from the Internet then the online video boom could be right for you.

Get Your Creative Juices Flowing

The Internet offers some great opportunities for those looking for a more creative career path.  The great thing about online video is that it offers you a chance to make your name in the business.  You don’t have to belong to a big name studio to make it big with online video.  All you have to do is create a few good videos and then start promoting your services.

I got started in online video 12 months ago.  It has been hard work but I have built up a good client list.  My career in online video began by accident really.  Some of my friends were involved in organising a charity ball.  I had some experience creating amateur videos with local theatre groups.  My friends asked me to help them make a video to promote the charity ball and we uploaded it to the Internet.

The video proved to be a big hit and generated a lot of interest.  Several people got into contact with me and asked for help with their promotional videos as well.  I soon realised that I could make a living out of promotional videos and started looking for ways to promote my work.  There are some fantastic video marketplace websites online that let you promote your videos and also get in touch with potential clients.  After a slow start I began to build up a solid list of paying clients and my career in online video took off.

There has never been a better time to get creative online.  You could cash in on the online video boom and start a new and exciting career in this diverse genre.
