Historically, most people earned money online by drafting articles and selling them for an upfront fee, however times have changed and many people are now resorting to recording video clips and uploading them to various sites, such as youtube in a bid to create some additional cash online.
There are many advantages to uploading video as opposed to writing articles, such as;
You need a minimal amount of equipment
Creating video footage to upload to youtube and other such sites requires you to have one piece of equipment on you, and that is a video camera, pocket camcorder or a cell phone with video capture features all of which are very small and transportable. Writing an article requires the use of a computer, laptop or notebook, all of which are much larger and not so easy to use in tight spaces.
It doesnt require any specific skills
Capturing video footage doesnt require any intellect and it is something that anybody and everybody can do. If you are a practical person as opposed to an intellectual person, taking video footage is going to be easier, and likely to be more of a money maker, than writing articles. Writing an article requires some talent with words and a specific level of intellect to write something that is accurate and comprehensive.
Capturing a video is far quicker, leaving you more time to do more of the things you want to do. Writing articles takes a long time, during which you may have recorded several video clips to upload to Youtube.
You can do it anywhere
You can easily capture video footage where ever you are and whatever you are doing, which means there are endless opportunities to create content. The same cannot be said about drafting an article.
You dont need to do any research
Capturing video footage doesnt require any preparation or research and whilst you have to optimise the link when you upload the footage, there isnt a great deal of SEO you can actually do with it. For a successful article you need to spend hours on keyword research, general research and time on optimising your page for SEO.
The above is just a few of the advantages to using video footage in order to generate some online cash, and if you sit back and think about it for a few moments I am sure you will come up with many more.
As you can see, there are loads of advantages to using video footage to earn some cash online and the next thing you need to know is how to create viral youtube video clips in order to get the views you need to generate some serious cash.
