I have only sold one outright. I did it to avoid the copyright. It sold for $10 and when it only got 1000 views, I thought I had chosen well. The third party views came it at 158,000 more and I realized I had lost considerable money.
But the point of the video was to promote a cancer fundraiser so my main objective was to get views, not make a profit. Either way, this supports the notion that video management is your best option.
@DavidMcNab Yes that could be: looking for frogs and things. It was a funny scenery to watch.
Yes In my opinion video management is the best option. I had one video on limited distribution, but it didn't do so well.
Hi everyone. They closed my discussion without me receiving an answer. I have looked and looked at previous posts and cannot find out HOW LONG it takes to receive third party earnings. From September 2015- April 2016 I was loving Rumble but now, not so much! I am not getting my third party earnings on videos that did go (very) modestly viral, but enough for some extra money!!
Third party payouts for me were Sept 2, 16 and 23. These were for February, March and April. I saw the views jump on the counter several weeks before payout. I expect one soon for videos uploaded in May. I think it will be each month on average for videos that are 6 months old. I'm not sure though, because it has not been completely regular.
I think the average is about $2 per thousand views. I've made a lot more each month on third party payouts than Rumble and YouTube combined.
That's OK. Happy to help. That's my one suggestion for Rumble: explain the earnings so that the creators aren't left guessing. Once you reach 6 or 7 months, the pattern becomes more obvious but people are impatient before that point.
