Although it’s not quite as popular as YouTube (yet), you may be surprised just how many benefits Humix has for your site over other massive video platforms. In fact, here are 6 reasons why Humix is better than YouTube — and is only getting better.
- Higher Earning Potential
I was shocked to learn that only about 0.25% of all YouTube channels actually earn revenue!
This happens for a lot of reasons (more on that below), but mainly because it can be very difficult to even pass the initial requirements to become eligible to monetize your work.
Humix is completely different, and offers more earning potential for users than even a giant like YouTube, minus many of the difficult restrictions and requirements. This is because the platform allows you to enable Humix to display your videos (and displays other videos) on your and other publishers’ sites, meaning you don’t need to have a video following or even any videos of your own to start earning revenue!
- Instant Reach
For most publishers, the process of starting a new YouTube channel can take months before you’re even eligible to receive a penny of your income (recent data shows it can take up to 22 months of consistent video creation before your channel can gain 1,000 followers, the baseline requirement for YouTube to release your revenue). If you’re new to video creation or aren’t that comfortable navigating around a complex video platform with ever-changing trends, updates, and rules, choosing to use YouTube can seem like an absolute headache and waste of time.
Humix, on the other hand, affords users instant reach when they upload videos to the network and begins inserting your videos into other sites with relevant content. This indexing process starts as soon as you upload a video onto Humix. You don’t even need a following (more on that in a minute) for your video to be placed into dozens of highly-trafficked, popular sites with countless readers seeing your video in the site!
- Simpler, Easier Requirements
YouTube requires several requirements for creators before they can ever collect their hard-earned revenue, not least of which are building 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 valid public watch hours.
Opinions vary on how long it takes to attract 1,000 subscribers; some creators can meet this requirement in less than a year, while others can work hard for 2 years and still not have enough subscribers. It all depends. Regardless, that’s a long time to wait without getting paid, constantly creating and publishing videos for months at a time.
- Using Flickify
Ezoic publishers can use Flickify, Ezoic’s article-to-video converter, to transform your stockpile or written articles and quickly turn them into revenue-earning videos after you upload them on Humix.
With YouTube (and every other video sharing platform), your success on the platform relies solely on getting more subscribers, followers, and views so you can get paid for your work. All this takes years of video creation expertise, expensive equipment, and video editing software know-how in order to consistently produce quality content.
Now, publishers can simply pair Flickify with Humix and upload their articles-turned-videos directly into Humix. This feature is exclusively available to Ezoic publishers, making it a no-brainer for publishers to use. Instead of learning how to be a master of written and video content creation, you can focus on writing great content and just using Flickify to create high-quality videos for you.
- You Don’t Need to Create Videos to Earn Money
On YouTube, if you don’t create your own content, you don’t earn money. That’s just how the platform works. Even if you wanted to share someone else’s great video you found and put it on your site, you’ll earn no referral revenue (although I’m sure that creator would be grateful you promoted their video for free!).
Humix allows creators to earn money without ever even creating or uploading a single video.
How? By turning on the “Engage: Display Network Videos” feature, which allows your site to display other high-quality Humix videos while sending you earnings from that video revenue. This means your site can automatically display relevant videos (adding videos of any kind to your site has a high correlation with increased site engagement), and thus provide you video content revenue without you ever creating any videos yourself.
- Your Videos Earn Money
Like we’ve said, video creators on YouTube need to spend months or years building up at least 1,000 subscribers and rack up over 4,000 valid public hours of watch time before you ever see your first paycheck (an achievement less than 1% of YouTube channels have accomplished).
This means unless you’ve accomplished something 99% of YouTube channels haven’t, you won’t even be eligible to receive any revenue.
Humix is different. Since the platform is still growing wildly and gaining huge traction, there is simply more potential and opportunity on Humix.
