    Guys,

    A friend of mine is the mastermind behind this viral video:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=goubYt8AiXU

    And on May 24th its gonna be on Tosh.0

    But now he calls me up and tells me he wants to monetize it. But adding YouTube ads can take as long as 2 weeks!

    What can I do to speed this up? I'm linking it to my adsense account now...
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    You should have posted this in the youtube section so you'll get more response from other members.

    As for the highest rated comment:

    "I'm pregnant and due soon, looking up birthing vids, haha...you guys are such dorks"

    I'd say offer something related to that niche. Birthing, child toys, food, etc.

    awesome creative vid..if you want to monitize it right away sign up to some affiliates and look for pregnancy related products and put the link on the video.

    Why dont you try the usual techniques like cut the video at the most important time and tell them that you can watch this video at yoursite.com where you either put a content locker thing and adsense ads etc.,

    Very simple idea.

    I wouldn't try to target the 'pregnancy' market like some people suggested. Instead I'd cater to the wider audience with either simple email submits or some sort of short form sign ups. Most of the people viewing the video will be there for fun. Not many pregnant women will see it. All you have to do is put an annotation on your video with your URL and a short call to action and another URL in the description. Once it shows on Tosh.0 you will get another few million so you should be able to make a good amount. Good luck.

    It says up to two weeks, but all my youtube videos get added pretty quickly, like a couple of days. Of course I have a bunch so I don't know if that helps.

    You could add in some annotations for email/zip submits.

    Use linkbucks. Link a bunch of link bucks accounts together like 15, and then put the linkbucks link in the description. People will click, each time they click you get paid for as many ads as they can sit there and click through. They never end up anywhere, but who cares you get paid.

    Looks like you guys were right. The ads are already up and it made $1.50 in an hour. Currently I have adsense running an ad on the right side, but is there a venue to sell adspace on the video itself? As a pop up, or one of those advertisements that come up before a video?

    No way it will take 2 weeks, I think they just say that to cover themselves you'll definitely have ads up before the 24th.

    I think they mean in the description perhaps? Like link to an offer.

    Honestly, I'd say keep it clean and simple. Ads are enough. Tosh.0 is awesome, I WILL be watching that episode for sure so I hope to see your video.

    Since it will be going even bigger (hopefully), dont do anything risky or too spammy so it can continue to get more and more viral.

    Best wishes :)

    btw, can I get free tosh tickets?
