Perhaps you need some convincing yet still? Ok, let’s try to jam a few things into your brain from a NewYorkTimes article today. I’ll pull out the points that need to stick in your head.
But most of YouTubeâ€™s licensing deals have been done quietly. It says it has firmed up more than 1,000 partnerships with content owners ranging from the Sundance Channel to small independent video producers.
Are you hearing what they are saying here? Small independent video producers are/could be you. Case in point, they specifically mention AskTheBuilder.com, a home-improvement site built by Tim Carter. ATB isn’t a giant media company. ATB isn’t a huge corporation. ATB is Tim doing videos out of his home that help people.
Advertisers want that.
â€œWe are creating channels on YouTube for each of these content owners,â€ said Jordan Hoffner, the head of premium and information content partnerships. â€œThose who do deals with us will have an opportunity for monetization.â€
Let me translate this for you. “Video is the future and those who produce videos will make a crap-load of money.”
