How Can I Make Money With Network4Musicians?
If you have a Network4Musicians account then just login and create a new article (just like this one), or add or upload a video from YouTube, or even record a LIVE video right on the Network 4 Musicians. Then just add your Google Adsense or Chitika account and you'll get paid a percentage of ad revenue for the ads on all of the content that you added or created (make it great and share it often to get more revenue!).
How Much You Can Make?
The actual amount you will make is almost impossible to calculate or even approximate due to the many factors involved: the variety of ads and ad networks, the number of articles/videos you create, how much they are promoted/viewed, etc. etc.. Now although the amount is flexible and somewhat ambiguous you can go here to and scroll to the bottom to see what bloggers report as earnings (each Network4Musicians article or video your create is formatted like a blog — so you should see similar stats for each article/video that you create or post).
Plus your content will exist on Network4Musicians for, well, forever hopefully. It's kind of like moonlighting as a music journalist, or video music teacher/gear reviewer, with the potential of a life-time of royalties on everything you create — including recordings of your performances.)
Getting More Views (Hits) Means More Income
Writing articles, or creating videos from scratch, can be quite simple. Just find an interesting topic and off you go, and sometimes this content is easily searchable.
But if you want to create great content
that draws in people from doing organic searches on Google, Bing, and the rest; then you can should read about Search Engine Optimization and make sure the principles apply to your: title, article content, description, and tags.
Your articles will be scoured by the search engines regardless, and Network4Musician members and users will find your articles easily on most pages of the site.
Setting Up Your Ad Share (getting paid for your views/work)
After you write and optimize your article you need to add your Google Adsense and/or your Chitika username to Network4Musicians.com.
Do this by logging in to Network4Musicians and clicking on the Home link from the Network4Musicians bar at the top of the page. Then from the Control Center
scroll down the page and find the Monetization
panel the click on the Ad Share
You'll see a pop up like the one below: just enter your Adsense Publisher ID and/or you Chitika username and click save.
Now all of your articles and videos will circulate ads with your publisher ID or username (the rotation percentage is also variable (from 75% and up), but can go up to and stay at 100% for contests!). This can easily be an additional income source (or even a primary source of income if your inclined to music journalism or viral video creation) if you can create great, original, high quality, content that is optimized for both users and search engines — and promoting your articles doesn't hurt either (share them with everyone you can!).
Creating And Adding Articles and Videos
Creating a new article is simple: just click create and start filling in the relevant information.
You can create a new video by recording LIVE
video directly on your (Flash enabled) device, but you can also select any videos from YouTube that you have uploaded (uploading directly will also be implemented well before the launch).
Why not add all your cool old YouTube how-to, gear reviews, techniques, and other music related videos (start getting paid for YouTube videos without having to get 15,000 views every quarter as a YouTube partner!) and add old, but relevant and reworked, papers and articles that your wrote years ago — or any interesting things or epiphanies that musicians need, or would want, to know about: music in general, the music business, music promotion, technology to help musicians, recording, performing, etc.
