    I have a channel that I'm ready to sign up with a network. Here are the offers I'm getting. I really don't understand what would be best.
    I currently get about $2.40 per 1000 /cpm on my own (averaged last year)
    Machinima's offering $2.50 per 1000 views
    Big Frame offers me 80% and they take 20%
    Full Screen is offering me 90% & they take 10%

    Wouldn't it be better to sign with Machinima since they are offering me more then I make rather than the other two who are offering percentages? Or do the other 2 offer much better ads and I will be making more? I can't seem to get a straight answer from anybody. Everything seems shady.

    I have a channel partnered with Machinima right now and like them but I wanna get the best deal for my other channel

    The thing is, you never really know what Big Frame and Full Screen will give you. I would just go with Machinima.

    No, I would not go with Machinima or any Network that puts a cap (like $2.50 CPM) on your earnings. Sure, you're only making $2.40 right now but CPM are going to continue increasing and I'm sure you'll be making more than $2.50 within the next 6 months. Also, part of the job of the Network is to sell Additional advertising, hence cranking that CPM up right away for you. So if you go with Big Frame or Fullscreen it is possible you'll be making more than $2.50 right away.

    As you probably already know from your from your other channel partnered with Machinima, you'll probably be a nobody to them because they already have thousands of channels signed to them. At least with Fullscreen and Big Frame they are a little smaller and I suspect the support you receive from them might be a little better. I'd probably go with the 90/10 split.

    Check how long you are locked in for with each network. That is the most important thing in my mind.
    Do you mind me asking what is your daily views?
