with one upload!
What does this service do?
OurVideoSite distributes your keyword-laden video to the top video hosting and social networking sites to increase the Search Engine Optimization of your product or service. OurVideoSite will then host your content for playback on your site with NO ADS. You can sell your product or service right from this site by adding a PayPal button - sales go right to you. And, you can make $$ by referring other people to this site.
How much does this service cost?
It's free to register. You get a free credit to "try before you buy", which entitles you to a free distribution of your video to the top video hosting and social networking sites AND to 30 days of ad free hosting and live Embed Codes on OurVideoSite. After that, one credit currently costs $1.
What happens after 30 days?
Your video has been distributed to your accounts on the top video hosting and social networking sites. Your video will stay there, because those sites are ad-supported. OurVideoSite has no ads. Your video IS the ad. After 30 days, your video will become inactive on OurVideoSite, unless you either click to reactivate for another 30 days (free) or apply another credit for one year of ad-free hosting.
Why are there no ads on OurVideoSite?
Ads are annoying and intrusive. Sitting thru a 30 second pre-roll ad just to watch a 2 minute video is obnoxious. OurVideoSite is geared towards people selling a product or service who don't want other people's ads pre-rolled, rolled-over, or post-rolled over their content. Simple, high quality, easy and inexpensive. It makes for a more enjoyable User experience.
Why can't I do this for free?
Your time is valuable. You can upload your video one site at a time to all the different sites, and then host your video on your own site. OurVideoSite will just save you tons of time and aggravation: one easy upload, instant distribution, ad-free hosting and more.
What's a 2 x 25% commission referral?
This is the OurVideoSite internal marketing plan. We would like to split the profits with you rather than anyone else. You receive 25% of the profit from business done by someone you refer to OurVideoSite. You receive 25% of the profit from people they refer to OurVideoSite.
Why not just call it a 50% referral commission?
Because it has the potential to be a lot more than that. Let's say you refer a key person in an organization, for instance, the owner of a real estate agency (your 1st level referral). You receive 25% of the profit from the paid videos that she creates to help sell her real estate. You will make a lot more money when she has all of her agents using OurVideoSite (your 2nd level referrals). Month after month, as long as they are using the service, you are being paid.
Is this MLM?
There is no sign up fee, no product to buy, no inventory to keep, no phone calls or meetings to attend, and no perpetually pestering people. You do, however, make passive residual income for referring the right kind of people. The right kind of people are those in business, looking for a quick, easy and inexpensive system to improve their competitive advantage using video on the web. So is this MLM? You decide.
How much do I make?
Full disclosure: It is best for you to make many people aware of this service. Since it's a two level commission structure, it is true that the more people you refer, and the more people they refer, the more commission credit you will receive. You receive a 25% referral commission whether it's from someone you directly referred or from someone they referred. One credit currently costs $1.
What is the "Silent Referral"?
You can receive paid referral commissions without saying a word to anyone! Let's say a new User to OurVideoSite is looking at one of your videos when they decide to click "Sign Up". They automatically become associated with your account. You receive 25% of the business done by them, and you receive 25% of the profit from people they refer to OurVideoSite. Or, if a new User is simply looking at your OurVideoSite User Profile when they decide to Sign Up, your accounts will become permanently associated. Best of all, if you are using OurVideoSite Embed Codes to host your video on your own site, and a new User clicks thru and signs up, your accounts will become permanently associated without any additional work on your part.
What if I personally have no active videos on OurVideoSite - how do I make money?
Create a free account on OurVideoSite. A new User to OurVideoSite would need to be on your User Profile page as they click "Sign Up" for your accounts to be associated together for your 2 x 25% commission structure to become active. You literally need not ever spend one penny on our service, and you can make perpetual passive residual income. However, it does require a little more initial work as compared to having an inventory of videos active on OurVideoSite, or by hosting your video on your site using OurVideoSite Embed Codes, where random referrals are just more likely.
What are "Embed Codes"?
There are no ads on OurVideoSite. If you would like your video to play on your site with no advertisements, just place your video's Embed Codes into your web site. You can find your Embed Codes under your video's "Edit and other options". OurVideoSite will host your video and take care of all the bandwidth requirements for you. If you don't know how incorporate Embed Codes into your site, ask the person who maintains your web site to do it for you. If that's too much of a hassle, contact us at Support at OurVideoSite dot com about having us host your web site for free.
Free web hosting?
Sure, assuming you are using the video distribution and hosting services, we can host your site. The complexity of your site will determine how many active videos will be needed to maintain your free website hosting. A smaller business, like a Bed-and-Breakfast, would require less active videos per month than would a medium size business, like a small town Real Estate agency.
Why not use the Embed Codes from YouTube or some other site?
Almost all other video hosting sites offer free embed codes. If you don't mind the ad-supported model, the perpetual annoying advertisements for your competition's products on your video, then go for it and use their free codes. Using OurVideoSite, your video IS the message, without other distractions, without other ads. Also, OurVideoSite presents your video in the "source resolution", which means the best possible quality is presented to your audience. Lastly, using OurVideoSite Embed Codes to host your video on your site gives you more opportunities for Silent Referrals.
How does the PayPal option work?
This option is the gateway to your own personal QVC-style 24x7 active sales site on the web. On the "Edit and other options" page of your video, there is a section where you can enter the Paypal sales code for your item. You create that code by visiting PayPal. Log in to your PayPal account, click on "Merchant Services", and then create a "Buy Now" button. That item's PayPal code, once active on OurVideoSite, immediately allows sales for your item. Payment goes directly to you; OurVideoSite never has access to your PayPal account. There is no cost to you for this service from OurVideoSite; PayPal will charge you their normal PayPal fees.
How does this help with my Search Engine Optimization (SEO)?
SEO is an ever-changing algorithm. Nobody can guarantee results. But, it seems reasonable: multiple instances of high quality content across the web is a good thing. Having the key words associated with your video on the top video hosting and social networking sites is a good step in the right direction. Especially in niche markets, your content will be extremely relevant to those searching for it.
What are good "key words"?
Key words are used in determining Search Engine Optimization (SEO). Good key words are any words or phrases your customers might use in a Google search. This is how they find your product or service. Prior to distributing your video to the top video hosting and social networking sites, you should include anything you think is relevant in your video's description and tags to help increase your SEO.
Why have map coordinates?
If you are selling real estate, or promoting a travel destination, the answer to that question should be pretty obvious. For a generic answer, consider that Google Earth may map you if it knows where you are, but will certainly not map you if it doesn't.
Charities are taken care of for free?
Yes. Legitimate 501(c)(3) and other charitable organizations are allowed to promote their good works with as many videos as they wish. Distribution and monthly hosting are free. A real benefit to the charity is that PayPal contributions can be made directly to the charity when the charity simply adds a PayPal button to their videos. Of course, charities may also refer for-profit ventures and receive the same 2 x 25% referral commission. So, using OurVideoSite, charities can quickly and easily distribute their messages across the web, and receive direct and indirect financial contributions.
What are some specific application examples?
- Real Estate sales and rentals. Imagine your clients doing a full walk-thru of your listing while you are asleep. They can send you a deposit via PayPal if they are ready to buy. Wouldn't that be a nice email to wake up to? Likewise, if they are not interested in that property, they won't bother you. They will self-select the properties in which they are interested. Here are some good examples:
- Travel Destinations. If a picture is worth a thousand words, a video is worth a thousand pictures. Inspire your client with videos. OurVideoSite has lots of examples of Travel Destination videos showing Real People having Real Fun. Just click on the Browse page and explore!
- Differentiate your business! Here's how a local Dentist stands out on the web:
Hornell, NY Dentist uses video to educate patients:
- Company contests. For instance, a Cruise Line can hold a contest asking their clients for their best cruise videos. Prizes are awarded as the Cruise Line sees fit (free trip, upgrades, onboard credits, etc). The company now has a library of User-generated content to help in a web-wide marketing campaign. Company-appropriate key words are inserted before the videos are distributed. For zero production costs and $1 per video distribution and hosting, any brand name company can increase their online presence and SEO quickly and legitimately. This is not spoofing the search engines, this is generating multiple site instances of high quality content. OurVideoSite will be happy to set up a special sub section of the site for this type of campaign. Contact us at Support at OurVideoSite dot com with your requests.
- Hotel room differentiation. Hotels all look the same in words, and pretty similar in pictures. Some hotels are more expensive than others. Would people have an easier time deciding on one hotel brand over another if they could see what the room looks like, and hear it described? How about the room(s) with a view? What about the qualities of the surrounding area? A video walk thru is more appealing than those distorted mute fisheye lens views you sometimes get. Bill Marriott, for instance, could invite all 3,000 of his properties to use the OurVideoSite service to promote the benefits of each Marriott property in a keyword-laden video. This video would be unique to the property, produced in a manner only possible by the team on the ground. Mr. Marriott is the referring party, and can donate his 2 x 25% commission to any of the environmental conservation projects or other green initiatives in which he is heavily involved. The individual property invests a really small amount of money to keep their videos embedded on Marriott.com, as well as all across the internet. It's win/win.
