Digital filmmaking has opened up, allowing filmmakers to produce and distribute their content, and participate in the digital marketplace. There are plenty of options for creators to choose from when putting their films online and selling direct to fans. Adding to the growing list of options, there are two new players on the block - Amazon and Dailymotion.

 

These two market giants have opened up their doors for everyone to submit content. I’ll highlight for you some advantages of putting your movie onto Amazon or Dailymotion, as well as how to capitalize within their vast marketplaces.

 

AVOD - Revenues

Amazon - Will pay you 55% of the net advertising revenues. 

Dailymotion - Will pay you 70%, but that depends mainly on these 2 factors:  

1) the number of ads played on your videos

2) the revenue generated by the ads played on your videos. This is determined by the average CPM (cost per thousand impressions) that your videos receive.

Theses two factors can vary from channel to channel, country of viewership, type of content, etc.
