As at November 27th 2017 my Huntsman Spider Jumps video
was up to roughly 750,000 views on Youtube.
My video clip appears in TV shows like America's Funniest Home Videos,
and has also appeared in Australia, Holland and Japan, and probably
Reddit.com boosted my views by 25,000
per day in the first 2 weeks of trending. Reddit is a source for
what's new and popular on the web. Users like you provide all of
the content and decide, through voting, what's good and what's junk.
Links that receive community approval bubble up towards #1, so the
front page is constantly in motion and (hopefully) filled with fresh
and interesting links.
As soon as the video started trending the
Video Licensing companies started scrambling over one another to
contact me and sign me up for a video licensing agreement. Some
of those companies included: Jukin
Media (who own Fail

Jukin Media (among other companies)
suddenly noticed my video trending
First of all I recieved a $250 sweetener
to upon signing up with Jukin Media. It was agred that I would recieve
60% of all future licencing fees. That money is paid directly into
my Paypal account.
I have linked my PayPal account to my regular bank so I can choose
to leave the money in PayPal or transfer any or all of it as I wish.
I like to leave some of the money in PayPal because it is gaining
acceptance globally and even locally to a lesser degree.
Enabling comments is a great way to engage with your audience however
Internet Trolls are also a consideration. I chose to disable comments
because of some vexatious comments.
