Last night, around 8:30PM CTD I've received a call from my buddy and he asked me if I was watching the MTV movie awards. Well I wasn't since I went outside for a 3 mile run and was doing some sprints and pushups. Anyway, he told me about Bruno (Sacha Baron Cohen - Borat) landing on Eminem's face. Well I immediately thought about monetizing this and went to YouTube to try to find a video. Well, I found one right off the bat. Of course it has been recorded with a digital camera but the quality was good enough though. So I went to TubeGrip.com and saved the video on my computer, renamed it and within a couple of minutes I had the video up. I also put up a little annotation that said - Free Ringtones at www.example.com. A minute or two later my video was processed and 4 or 5 minutes later it was already removed due to Viacom copyright issues. Well I logged in to my CPA account and I already had over 300 hits to my affiliate link and 3 conversions at $13 a piece. So I knew there was something to it. Then I did it again and my video was taken down after a couple of minutes again but I made a couple of more conversions. So after that I had a 3 minute brainstorming session and had to quickly come up with a way of keeping my video up there for a longer time. So basically what I decided to do is put a big annotation across the whole screen so the video can still be viewed but not as well as normally. That allowed my video to survive online for 18 hours before my account was temporarily banned. Anyway I took a screen shot of my video after it was taken down, inside the annotations interface. If you look at the screen shot if you will see what I'm talking about. By the way, I've received over 14,000 hits to my website and had 185 conversions at $13. So if you do the math that is $2,405.00 at around 1.3% conversion rate which is pretty good for YouTube traffic. If you have any questions please post it on here. Also, if you follow the news (or in my case your buddy does ) you will realize that there are constant celebrity related news that you can monetize in this or a similar way. Btw, the Google news are wonderful for this kind of stuff.
