Creative Commons Video Marketing | What Is It? How Can I Use It To Make Money on YouTube? | CCBY3.0 Info
Find FREE money-making videos in YOUR niche in the YouTube Editor today! Here's what you need to do:
1. Go to your YouTube page and CLICK on CREATION TOOLS at the bottom of the column on the left side of the window.
2. CLICK on YOUTUBE EDITOR.
3. CLICK on the Creative Commons CC TAB to find millions of auto-attribution videos.
4. Enter your niche's keyword terms in the Search Box and hit your Return key.
5. Voila! Up will pop many keyword targeted videos in YOUR niche.
6. Drag a video into the YouTube Editor timeline and edit as you would like. (Be careful to look and listen carefully for any copyrighted logos, emblems, music, celebrity faces or people in the video who obviously did NOT give the video creator permission to use their likeness, logo, music, etc. Read up on copyright laws and Creative Commons attribution licensing to make sure you use these videos correctly).
7. Click on the TEXT TAB and drag a TITLE clip to the beginning and end of your video in the timeline. Change the size, font, and position of your title as you wish. Be sure to add an appropriate Call to Action in your Outro Clip so viewers will know what to do after watching, e.g., "For More Info, Click The Link Below." Then make sure you add the link to your website page in the Video Description Box below your video so viewers can find you.
8. Add a Keyword rich title for your video.
9. Click PUBLISH.
10. Fill out all your Description, Monetization, and Advanced settings information in the tabs below your video. If you want to share your video with the Public, then make sure you choose PUBLIC in the drop-down box, write a brief teaser for your video, and check the boxes so friends and/or the Public can also see it on G+, Facebook, and Twitter.
11. SAVE and PUBLISH your video description and settings info and you are done!
Once you are finished, pull up your video in YouTube and click the ABOUT TAB in the description, then click MORE so you can see your whole description. To the right of your description, you will now see YouTube's auto-attribution system at work, with a thumbnail and link to all the original video sources you used to create your remixed Creative Commons video. Click on these sources and you'll see both your source video and all the other videos that were created using that particular source video.
WARNING: Sometimes unscrupulous copyright thieves will add videos to the Editor that are NOT licensed under the Creative Commons attribution by 3.0 license, so make sure YOU backtrack to the ORIGINAL creator to verify whether the CREATOR licensed it under Creative Commons for the YouTube Video Editor auto-attribution program. Otherwise, both the video and/or you may get deleted and/or banned for copyright infringement.
At this point, I always click on the SOURCE VIDEO, check out their license, and look at their Channel to look for clues that this actually was the original creator. If so, they'll probably have tons of other CC videos they've licensed under Creative Commons and probably more in YOUR niche. If something looks fishy, I'll search in YouTube with similar keywords until I find THE original video and message the original creator and ask permission from them, explaining I found and edited my video using the YouTube Editor. That way, if they do object, you have evidence you tried to do the right thing by informing them of what had become of their video. If you ask permission nicely in that manner, they may still allow YOU to republish their video. If not, you have evidence you tried to do the right thing.
While that may deter you from using YouTube's Creative Commons videos, don't let it. There are sooooooo many great videos licensed this way for YOU to use properly, that the little extra "sourcing" work is nothing compared to the time, cost, expertise, and trouble of creating similar videos from scratch.
So now... go find some money-making Creative Commons CCBY3.0 videos in YOUR niche!
