Hello everyone!

I am happy to announce that I am now into my second week here working at the FanBox offices in my new role as your President!

I cannot thank you all enough for your support throughout this entire period, and I have some very exciting things to introduce to you all in the very near future!

It has been extremely rewarding for me to be able to work alongside all of the employees here at FanBox that make our community as great as it is, and I know that with all of your input and their dedication to providing everyone with the best quality product possible, that we are going to see some amazing things coming over the course of the next 6 months and beyond.

So with that said, let’s get down to business!

 

As you may or may not know, FanBox recently designed an extremely simple way for its users to earn through their photos and blog posts by allowing all FanBoxers to earn when people view their blog posts and photos in their homepage feeds within the first 24 hours of publishing them.

 

To refresh your memory, this simple way to earning has been broken down into 3 simple steps that applies to your blog posts, your photos and, NOW your videos as well. Those steps include:


1.  Post QUALITY items DAILY 

2.  Build a LARGE fan base 

3.  Build a LOYAL fan base 

 

While this simple way of earning applies exactly the same way to videos as it does with photos and blogs, the way that we earn from videos is slightly different than how we earn from the rest of our content.

Let me explain:

 

With our photos and blog posts, we earn for the first 24 hours of publishing simply by having our content viewed on other people’s newsfeeds.

With videos, we still earn for only the first 24 hours of publishing, but we only earn when someone actually clicks and views that video. People can click on that video directly from your profile page and/or they can click on that video from their news feed as well.

Just to say that again - 

You earn from videos for the first 24 hours that you have published them:

1) When your friends and fans view your video in their feed and click on that video
 

2) When your friends and fans view your video on your profile and click on that video

 

Why the change?

 

Well as you probably already know, the way the newsfeed works makes it very easy for users to fully view photos and most blog posts, but because videos need to be played to be fully appreciated, it only makes sense that the way that you earn from videos is dependent upon other users actually clicking on and watching the videos that you post to your wall.

 

So now that you know how you earn from posting videos, let’s discuss how you actually get those videos posted onto your profiles so that you can start racking up the earnings!

 

Step 1: Go To The Top Of Your Profile Page or Home Page And Click On “Add Photos/Video”

Product Launch: Earn With Videos

 

Step 2: Click on the “Add a Video” link

Product Launch: Earn With Videos

 

Step 3: Choose your favorite Vimeo or YouTube video and copy and paste the link into the status update box.

 

Product Launch: Earn With Videos

 

Step 4: Click on the “Post” button and your video will go live on your profile page and to all of the newsfeeds of your friends and fans as well.

 

Product Launch: Earn With Videos

 

 

Now that you know how to add videos to your profile and how you can earn from those videos, let’s quickly go over a few reminders on exactly what you need to do to achieve long term success here:

1)      1) Always post quality content – This is especially true for videos, because you actually need your fans and friends to spend their time watching your videos in order for you to earn from it. If you don’t provide them with quality content to watch, then they won’t click on your videos and you won’t earn from your efforts.

2)      2) Share content daily – You only earn directly from your content for the first 24 hours, so to ensure that you are earning daily from your videos you should make sure to post high-quality videos as often as possible. Always remember though that quality is more important than quantity!

3)      3) Don’t spam others – The ability for people to post videos to other users walls will soon be completely removed due to a number of users trying to take advantage of the system by “hijacking” other people’s newsfeeds. This kind of behavior is not only considered spam, it is against everything that we stand for here at FanBox. We are supposed to be working with each other to achieve a unified success – not take advantage of other people’s success for our own personal gains.

 

Please think before you act so that we can preserve the integrity of our community at all times.

 

Can everyone earn with videos? 

Yes! As long as they are posting high-quality videos daily that their friends and fans click on and share with others, then they can earn.

 

Will most of the video earnings go to Power Users? 

Yes, almost all of it.

By becoming a Power User, your earnings from videos will go up 10, 20 or even as much as 100 times.

Just pay close attention to who is earning a lot from their videos, or even their content in general, and you will see that they are all Power Users.

 

How can I become a Power User? 

Go here to learn how, or speak with your free Success Coach.

 

What else is on the way? 

A lot!

As JC has mentioned to you over the past several months, the FanBox employees have tons of amazing new features to provide everyone in the coming months that I have been able to provide my input on as well.

In addition to that, I have a large list of priorities that all of you have given to me throughout the past several months during the Presidential campaign, and I am working hard with everyone here to make as many of those priorities a reality as soon as possible!

Remember that all of your ideas and thoughts are what help shape this amazing community, and I implore you all to continue to be active FanBox citizens through sharing your opinions with myself, your Success Coaches and with each other.

Together we can achieve anything and you should feel proud to invite your friends, family and even strangers into our community so that we can spread our mission across the globe.

 

Thank you all, and I hope to see a lot more amazing videos on your profiles very soon!

Yes, we all needed to heard that exactly and officially what we should do with that videos. But now as almost everyone did this spamming way, will we all get expelled from Fanbox? I know that the rules are strict but they were not clearly set for videosharing so most people misunderstood.
Thank yoou a lot for your great efforts to complete this useful post for us. I wish you good luck and success in your President role. :-)

Thank you Kveto

Not to worry, no one will be expelled for posting videos on other people's walls, but the ability to do that will not be around for much longer.

I hope that since I am able to write much more detailed information for everyone from now on, that everyone will know the proper ways to use the site so that things like that do not continue happening.

For now though, everyone should enjoy this new way to earn and look forward to some more great announcements very soon!

What about people who want to share a video with a certain friend? A while back, one of my friends had me take a took at one of her blogs dealing with her personal experience of singing in a church choir. That blog was not getting very many views, so I politely obliged. I told her that maybe it would be better if it had a video in it and posted a link to a video of people singing in a choir in the comment section, on her wall, and on my wall. She added the video to her blog, and that particular blog has been performing much better. I think there should be an opt-in or opt-out feature in regards to sharing videos on walls. If people don't want videos being posted on their walls, or a certain user posting videos to them, we should be able to do that. If someone is okay with other Fanboxers posting video content on their walls, we should be able to leave it the way it is.

We could even have more of a video content filter. If a person doesn't like, say Beyonce Knowles, and does not want to have video content dealing with her posted on their wall, perhapsFanbox could develop some filters that users can personalize. That user could then adjust the filters to not allow or block anything to do with Beyonce from being posted on their wall. True, the easiest way would be for them to just not click on anything that says Beyonce on it, but sometimes content can be misleading. You click on something and you don't realize it's something you personally find offensive until you are halfway through it.

Anyway, it was just an idea. (This post has nothing to do with my personal opinions of Beyonce. I just used her name as a example to illustrate my opt-in/opt-out and content filter idea suggestions. Thank you.)

Kristin, do you know that you can choose who can post on your profile page? http://prntscr.com/1t9n0v
If you want to allow videos to be posted on your profile by other you have to
go in to the Account Settings and change it. If you are talking about filters for video content, I guess there must be used a system of tagging, the same as we have for choosing which kind of ads we want to see.

Hi brian ......first of all congratulation on being the new president
,secondly , its great to see the new way of earning from sharing the video....and its good to see that we earn when we play ,....as in the home page the video quickly moves down while we play to them and now when we can go and play while visiting the friends and fans profile it is really an good thing .


Also as we earn when we post the video on out own wall, this thing will reduce the people posting the links on our walls .and hence the walls will be more clear and will be clean of the unwanted material.

Thank you and have a nice day :)
