Google AdSense Video Units
When it comes to creating online video I feel pretty comfortable writing, producing, directing or tackling any creative problem that comes my way. I’ve produced all kinds of things for traditional TV from underwater shots to air to air helicopter shots. I’ve worked with thousands of extras, big name celebrities and nightmare directors and I always enjoy a good challenge but when it comes to Google AdSense and their new Video Units I feel like I’m going to the dentist.
I’m a creative person. I like things to be fun and amusing. I find the user interface of Google AdSense to be cumbersome and uninviting.
I’m really excited about Google’s new Video Units but when I visit their blog
I can barley pay attention to the video and I really want to know how to make the most out of Google AdSense and Google AdSense Video Units. I don't want to pay some pyramid marketing evangelist to teach me how to use Google AdSense and Google AdSense Video Units. I want it to be as easy as uploading a video to Revver or searching and downloading a video podcast from iTunes.
Is it just me or do any of you other creative people out there feel like you just want to run away when you log in to Google AdSense and try to figure out how to make money using their tools?
That said, I’m looking for an easy way to get the most out of Google AdSense Video Units and I’m hoping that by blogging about it an easy way will come to me.
I've forced myself to watch the above How To video several times and I understand what I need to do to make this happen but I'm just not motivated to do it and I can't really put my finger on why that is.
