    Question short clips site, what to sell to your viewers?

    I'm launching a site with short funny clips for the viewers to view. But I can't think of what sort of advertisement to put on the site. Any ideas?

    lots of banners, sky scrappers, rectangle advertisments, words underlined, adsense, and several affiliate links.

    put the free psp free xbox 360 ps cpc ads and you'll get a ton.

    Of course those are only speculations and he's not guaranteeing you will get a TON of $$. If you have a LOT of visitors movie sites do well but you have to be accepted into the decent networks as affiliate promotions do not always do well or they may only work for a month or two. YOu should have your own dedicated server if you plan on this site growing..

    That works but normally with video sites you eat so much bandwidth just starting it's almost impossible to start on a shared account that provides enough . Another thing to remember is that he said small clips he didn't say how many he may have over 1gb of video clips this is a PAIN transfering them to a new host. If he could get a reseller account someplace it would be a nice starting point but he needs to plan for the future too.

    Yeah for video sites I recommend you have money to start out for a dedicated server and lots ads once you can get a steady stream of visitors you can start making a steady stream of income . If you have money to invest these sites are easy to become a success . I tried to start one a while ago with like $200 I bought the dedicated server and ads but than when next month came I could barely afford the dedicated server and no ads so it was a failure and I just lost money .
