Revver shares $1 million with videographers
Video-sharing company splits revenue with video creators pays out $1 million over the past year.
Revver, a video-sharing site trudging along in YouTube's shadow, announced Wednesday that the company paid $1 million to videographers over the past year.
Los Angeles-based Revver, among the first Web sites to share advertising revenue with video creators, paid the money to 25,000 people, the company said in a press release.
Because Revver splits ad money with creators, 50-50, Nick Gonzalez at TechCrunchfigured that the company makes around $2 million to $2.5 million from advertisers.
He also suggested that the figure could be lower if Revver pays more to high-end video makers.
