    Hey guys,

    Was thinking of having a website where advertisers pay to have their website advertised as a link in a publishers YouTube account description box.

    Publishers advertise their accounts on my website and then advertisers browse and choose the accounts they would like to advertise in.

    Kind of like sponsored tweets or RevTwt but for YouTube.

    Advertisers would be charged per click via tracking link supplied by my website which would be given to publisher to put in description box.

    I think it would give better reach to advertisers as YouTube videos would get more unique visits than Twitter accounts. Also YT'ers can't change their account usernames as they can with Twitter accounts.

    It also rewards the smarter YT marketers than the average Joe Soap. YT'ers that can optimise their videos to be found in YouTube search etc. and who can use good annotation copy will stand to make a lot more money and probably provide better traffic for the advertisers.



    I thought of this idea when I saw so many YouTube videos that are outranking mine (but I'm still making money :p) for certain keywords and thought man, imagine if I could just get them to advertise my site for me.

    Any opinions?

    You can contact the youtube video owners and buy some advertising yourself, you also can target google ppc ads on their page. No one is going to pay ppc for a youtube description, hell most won't even pay per action, ITS 90% SPAM

    Yeah I know I can contact them directly but that is like saying a CPA advertiser can get their own leads.

    And Google PPC ads don't allow "call to action" (very powerful!) and people already ignore them because they know they are just ads.

    The idea I have is different, whereby the viewers aren't really aware that the video uploader is a publisher even though I would, by law, have to disclose that it is in fact an ad, like asking the advertiser to put the word "ad" or "spon" after the ad copy.
