Maybe you've seen the video below?
But did you know that the 2 minute video had made the DeVore family 150 grand – $100,000 from YouTube – in 18 short months?
Within 4 days of posting “David after Dentist” on YouTube, the video had received over 3 million views. As of mid-2010, more than 64 million people have seen it and 94 thousand people have left comments.
With traffic like that comes money — money that can change everything.
Posting this crazy little video on YouTube has changed their lives completely. David's dad quit his real estate job to market t-shirts and stickers featuring their son's now famous post-dental surgery lines, “Is this real life?” and “Is this going to be forever?“.
What I love about their online store is a comment near the bottom of the page…
When the video went viral we quickly learned a new word, MONITIZATION. Its the cool, new hip word for making money off the Internet. Profiting has become such a dirty word.
Granted, they spelled monetization incorrectly, but what the heck… they sure picked up and ran with the concept!!
So, got any ideas for a cool YouTube videos? It could make you rich! 🙂
