    Hi, I currently have a somewhat successful youtube channel but have been thinking of also starting my own website and instead of embedding my youtube videos on my website just hosting them myself. Now to start off and to keep hosting costs down I thought maybe I can put 10-20 videos on the new website than sign up with adsense, but a look at adsense's qualifying criteria of 2M+ video impressions quickly put an end to that dream..haha

    Now my question is are there any other companies like adsense that would be willing to provide video ads to such a new website with probably low to no traffic early on? Or maybe does anyone know of a company where the requirement is alot lower than 2M+ views/Month?

    I know I can make some money using banner ads and affiliate programs but I figured if I can get video ads the increase in revenue would be alot higher.

    FYI my videos are about DIY repairs around the house and I currently get about 9k views/day on youtube. I figure I can probably get 10% of that to visit my website if I push my website in my videos.. maybe alot more in the long run.


    Hope I made sense and any help is appreciated.
    thanks

    I'd really be interested in knowing how this goes... But! My advice would be to use your youtube videos and later on go with option to host them yourself.

    I don't see the benefit of hosting them yourself in the begining. Besides that your videos will get higher in google rankings and overall help you grow a bigger brand on youtube which you can slowly move to your website and when the time is right and make money, switch to your own solution.

    Pretty hard what you want to do with hosting the videos on your own, look at giantbomb.com, they had their own video hosting but changed it to YT because it is more beneficial for potential profit and now they have a backlog of so many videos that it would require a tone of servers and hard drive space. Put an annotation to a text article that has steps and pictures on how to repair that exact thing. The article on the site should have the YT video embedded. In this case people who find you first on YT will go to your site and those who find you on your site can go to YT.
