A tool for good or bad? YouTube Ads

Today’s email:

Your YouTube account StallarSkateSnow might be eligible to earn revenue from the playbacks of your videos.

Making money from your videos is easy. Here’s how it works: First sign into your YouTube account. 

If your account is enabled, we may place ads next to the videos you submit for monetization. You will earn a share of the revenue from the ads as long as you meet the program requirements.

Thanks and good luck!

Huh? So this is why we are stuck with those annoying commercials before we can watch our selected video, and that’s why I have to keep clicking the little red X on the pop-ups that obstruct our view!

So is this a tool for better or worse?

I would say it’s for worse since you don’t know what type of ads will be featured in your video. You may not agree with the company that has millions to spend on bugging your viewers. As a small business I think it’s better to keep things clean and simple for our small audience. They will appreciate this from us!

So what do you think? Is YouTube helping businesses succeed through advertisements and getting the word out, or just another annoying pop-up we have to click out of?
