Everything seems to be turning towards video. Just take a look at YouTube and the hundreds of thousands of videos on various websites.  There is a range of websites offering ‘How-To’ videos that provide video enthusiasts with an opportunity to make money by producing these videos.

How_to_Hydrofoil_Geno_Yau.gifThere is a need for these companies to produce quality videos in order for them to generate advertising revenue.  Research is showing that if you don’t have video on your website you’re losing viewers or clicks. The great thing is, you don’t need to spend tens of thousands of dollars to produce video for the web. Yes, you can create a supplemental income by producing video content for these types of websites. . All that’s needed is a video camera with a microphone, some headphones, and a computer with some type of video editing software.


The next time you're on YouTube, click on ‘Community’ at the top of the page, this will lead you to a video contest page, where company’s like Chrysler, Wachovia, and other major companies have a need for video content.
This idea here is simple. These companies get a bunch of creative ideas, instead of hiring an ad agency.  Now, you may not win the contest, but this will help get your creative juices flowing and eventually lead you to creating some great videos.

Take a look at Current.com  - “Current is about what's going on in your world’   You won't find this  type of content  on any other news site or cable TV channel.  Current.com is the place to find and share stories and videos that are interesting to you. It connects to Current TV, a global cable and satellite TV network.”  On Current.com you will see a wide variety of topics you can produce video for.  If you’re lucky, and it makes TV, you get paid. With these viewer created ads you can make some decent money. Doing this kind of video production work may not make you rich, but it will keep your creative juices going.

To supplement your income or to make a good salary, check out sites like Expert Village, or Monkeysee.  Creating ‘how-to’ videos can pay up to $500 for a series of 1-3 minute video clips. Demand Media who owns expertvillage.com have also teamed up with Lance Armstrong to create livestrong.com. 

Then there is Turnhere.com that includes video content related to travel, business and promotional videos.  These videos pay a minimum of $225 a pop.  If you produce 2 a day, 5 times a week, you could generate close to a $100,000 a year!

Now, it’s not as easy as it sounds. It takes a special person to be motivated to complete all the work needed for these types of video productions.  This requires the ability to produce, write, shoot, and edit in order to produce a great video.  You can do it!  If you’re looking for a new career or just some extra money GeniusDV is here for you.
