Hi. I am a writer and artist. I am interested in web video monetization. I want to create animation and comics and showcase them online in web video form, with the intention of making money off of them.
I know a lot of independent comics and cartoon people showcase their work in web videos online and they make money off of that. I need to make some money.
I know for a fact on YouTube, you can earn at least $1/1,000 views per video, and on Dailymotion and Metacafe $5/1,000 views per video. I am not sure what the pay rate is for web video views on Vimeo, or on social media sites like Facebook and Twitter, and Instagram, etc.
I don't know if this is the MOST-watched INDEPENDENTLY animated web video online, on ANY web video site or on any social media site, or elsewhere, but I know this video generated 42+ million views on YouTube:
It has 48,730,143 views a of the time of this posting of this question,
The guy who made it earned $48,730 for it on YouTube, at least. Had it been on Dailymotion and Metacafe, with THAT many views, he would have earned at least 5 times that amount.
I am doing all this for research purposes.
I want to know what the MOST-watched independently animated video is anywhere online because I want to know how much money was made off of it.
Please help- thank you.
