There’s lots of buzz about video being so hot and affiliates are trying to figure out how they can cash in on it. There is a site where you can create your own video community and generate revenue through Google Adsense and Revver called Magnify.net.
Magnify sites include several types of advertising messages:
- Text Links and Banner Ads Magnify shows contextual advertising messages in the margins of some pages.
- Integrated Advertising Some videos syndicated from third-party hosting services contain integrated advertising. (For example, videos hosted by Revver include an advertisement after the end of the video.)
- Video Pre-Roll A few Magnify sites are currently testing a pre-roll offering that plays a 10-30 second video advertisement before some video views.
Magnify.net provides upload, storage, and bandwidth free, and the revenue share on advertising is 50/50.
I recently met Steve Rosenbaum, CEO of Magnify Networks, and he gave a quick summary of Magnify.net. So I’ll let him explain…
It’s really simple – if you’re thinking about putting video on your Web site, and you’re thinking I need an uploader, I need a page, I need someplace to store video, I need a way to organize it and a way to deliver it, basically what Magnify has done is bundled together all of those products into one package. So anyone who has an existing Web site can build a channel using Magnify really quickly. Or if you don’t have your own Web site, you can use Magnify to build your own video channel. The idea is that it’s simple, it’s free, it’s fun, and we have a great community off developers, so there are always new templates and ways to explore the service. it’s been growing really nicely, so you should play with it.
I’ve been using Magnify for a while for the Affiliate Summit Video Channel, and just the other day I created Affiliate Tip TV on there. I literally created it in minutes.
Lots of features with this system, including the ability to include blog posts and a video upload for a video blog, widgets to promote your video channel, easily customized templates, integration of the popular video hosts like YouTube and MySpace, site statistics, and RSS feeds.
