    Hey everyone, normally I don't ask for advice, as I've been doing this for a while. But one of my projects has me completely stumped.

    I created a gadget that 1,000,000 youtube users have installed on their comp. I gave it away as a free DL with the anticipation that I would be able to monetize it later, and put it in my back pocket.

    But I can't for the life of me figure out a good way to monetize this little bastard. I have the ability to send notifications to all users simaltaneously, as well as a forced view of my Youtube channel.

    I am not familiar with Youtube or any monetization techniques. Anyone got any good ideas? I might be willing to JV with someone if the idea is good. Thanks.

    The notifications go to their e-mail inbox or to their youtube account inbox?

    Send them free CPA offers depending upon the niche you're in and also consider their demographics. If your videos are consistently getting 1 million views, you can apply for YT's partnership program which pays $2 or $3 for every 1000 views which equals 2k for every video watched. You can also send them to your website to increase your traffic and sales too. :D

    Yes, i'd like to know this too.
