We earn revenue by running a 5-second pre-roll video ad in front of all videos. This is how we ensure that the platform will continue to be up and running so creators like you can freely upload videos.
We do not pay content creators for the videos they upload but we have an entire e-commerce store behind Brighteon.com, which will be launched at BrighteonStore.com. If you choose, you can opt in to the affiliate program for that online store, and you can earn a good percentage on all sales from your viewers. We have a massive new warehouse and fulfillment center in Texas that manufactures the products and fills the orders for that entire system.
We also encourage our creators to work with their own sponsors or sponsor networks. You can do live reads, sponsor plugs. That way, you get paid directly and do not need to worry about providing a percentage to REAL.video because we will not be asking for any cut.
