What is Video Tipping?
If you watch a lot of viral content and you are someone who can spot great, compelling and entertaining videos; Video Tipping may be for you. A Video Tipper is someone who can spot these videos from the original filmer; typically found on social media e.g. YouTube, Twitter, Instagram etc.
Who can tip?
Anyone can become a Video Tipper, whether you’re an existing member or new to Newsflare! (You need to have a PayPal account).
How do you tip?
Once you’ve found the original video, copy the URL link of the video and submit a video tip to Newsflare for review. You should see a little blue box in the bottom right-hand corner to submit the URL. You will then earn money for every video tip that is approved.
What kind of videos are Newsflare looking for?
- Anything with a unique or interesting action
- Extreme weather – tornadoes, floods, lightning, huge storms, massive hail, huge waves, etc
- News footage – footage of any newsworthy event that is interesting
- Cute pets, kids, families
- Dashcam – learner drivers, road rage, crashes
- Fails – falls, slips, and crashes
- Animal videos – unusual animals, animal attacks, unusual animal behaviour, wildlife rescues
How much can you make?
This varies and depends on how many videos tip and how many go on to sell. There aren’t any limits to the amount you can tip, however, we do recommend around 20 videos to begin with. Don’t feel like you have a massive commitment to us – yo put in as many or little hours as you like! Newsflare will pay you for every tip that is approved, makes it onto the Newsflare platform and for every tip that makes its’ first sale.
We pay £0.50 for every tip that passes checks and is a video that we think has potential to sell. Our newsdesk researchers will attempt to make contact with the filmer of that video.
We pay another £3.50 when the filmer of the video agrees for us to license the video on their behalf and it gets uploaded to Newsflare.
When the video sells, we pay you £6 for its first sale.
