Money really is one of the biggest motivators, and Blip.tv is sure to motivate their creators to improve upon their content and promotions with the announcement that they will be paying $10 to $15 per 1,000 views. Joshua Cohen of Tubefilter News reported that Blip sent out a holiday greeting last week to their network of producers to let them know that a nice new payout system is in order.

According to Cohen, Blip is promising their content creators “$10 per 1,000 views, with some shows making as much as %15 per thousand views.” Those of you that aren’t sharing revenue for online video content may have no idea whether $10 to $15 is big payout or not, but Blip’s VP of Sales Evan Gotlib told Tubefilter that, “All the evidence I have is anecdotal, but show creators keep telling us we’re offering the best CPMs and revenue shares on the web.” So all you web video creators out there, if you’re not posting on Blip.tv you better get on that boat!

Cohen writes that video uploaders at Blip need to turn all three of the site’s advertising posts, which include pre-roll, overlay, and post-roll, to the “on” position if they want to make the most of Blip’s advertising action.

I think that handing over a piece of the revenue to creators is one of the best ways for video companies to ensure that great content is coming in, as well as that the creators are doing all they can to bring as much traffic as possible to the site, be it by advertising on Twitter and Facebook, creating fun contests or by other means. By offering such great CPMs, content creators have even more motivation to create high-quality, original content that people want to watch so that they can maximize their views and their revenue.

Blip.tv has been showing steady growth throughout 2010 and things are only looking up for them in 2011. I think the new CPMs will only inspire creators to work even harder and take the online video site to whole news levels. What do you think of Blip’s promise to content creators? Do you think it will result in a boost in engaging material, and an overall boost for Blip.tv in 2011?
