YouTube is a great place to make money doing what you love. Except that it’s too much work and little pay. We think you can do much better by having your own video website.
1. Increase Your Ad Revenues
Having your video website will help you multiply your revenues. Instead of just earning money for video views, you will start earning money from both ads on your YouTube videos PLUS Google Adsense (or other provider’s) advertisements on your website! Each website design comes with several locations for placing ads throughout the website.
Vidmy also offers video loading ads that allow you to show ads before videos play on your website, thus further increasing your ad revenues.
2. Increase Your Video Views
On YouTube you in competitions with hundreds of other channels that are trying to attract viewers with their catchy titles and video thumbnails which appear right next to your videos while they are playing. This means that while you are earning money from YouTube as people view your videos, you also lose money as YouTube suggest videos from your competing channels rather show your videos only.
If you have your YouTube channel, making your fans watch your videos on your website will ensure that keep watching your videos only without being distracted with videos from your competitors.
3. Your Unique Branding
In addition of not having control of what videos are shown to your users, you also have almost no means to brand your YouTube page in a way that is unique and distinguishes you from all the other pages other than one banner image.
Having your own website allows you to stand out from the crowd and express your own brand, using your own design and even your own custom domain name (ex: www.my-channel-name.com). It also allows you to create your own static customization pages to showcase any content you want to present to your users.
4. Build a Fans Email List
Having your own website on Vidmy allows you to build a community of followers who can sign up to your website in order to vote and submit videos for publishing on your website. This allows you to build an email list of your loyal fans giving you direct contact with them that you can’t get from YouTube or Facebook.
