Hey Animation Lovers?
One of the topics that is running through my mind these days is that 'Is it possible to make money by creating animated web shows for Internet?'
It is widely known now that more and more people are watching videos on Web. There are 24 hours of videos being uploaded on You Tube every minute. There are people in this world who do nothing else but make videos for You Tube, their videos get millions of views and they make pot loads of money. Interestingly these people are not some big shot production companies but independent creative people like you and me.
So after having seen lots of such videos and getting inspired, I decide to dip my feet in the world of web shows. I created a You Tube Channel about a year back and started posting animated videos. My channel even got selected as a You Tube partner but one year down the road I am far from making any money from my videos. Most views that any of my video has garnered is roughly 2000. I have four videos that have got more then 1000 views and overall views that my channel has recieved in one year is 11,000. My You Tube Partnership has generated all of 3 US dollars in one year. These are not the figures which encourage me to quit my Day job.
So I am often left wondering that what does it take to get thousands if not millions of views? Is my Content not good enough? Should I do some marketing etc etc.
Is their anybody in these forums who has wisdom about Videos for Internet? Please feel free to discuss. Oh and if you wanna take a look at my content here's the link to my You Tube Channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/LongyTV?feature=mhee
Looking forward for your views..:)
