Are you a master tie-knotter? Rubik’s cube solver? Expert kisser? Want to share your expertise with the world via Web video — and earn fame and fortune? TVWeek’s Daisy Whitney tells you how to turn your know-how into cash flow in her latest “New Media Minute,” where she outlines the recent boom in the how-to category of online video.
Ms. Whitney forecasts a how-to gold rush based on the launch of a few heavy-hitter how-to sites, including Howcast.com, WonderHowTo.com, MonkeySee.com, and more. Some sites will pay experts to post their videos on a commission basis, while others aggregate from free sharing sites. With 5% of how-to search queries going to video sites, now may be the best time to get on board.
For the lowdown on becoming a self-styled expert and a list of the top 10 how-to sites, check out Daisy Whitney’s “New Media Minute” on TVWeek.com.
