The world’s 2nd largest video hosting site Dailymotion announced that it has integrated Flattr and is making fan support available for all participants of its MotionMakers program.
To say that we’re excited about the partnership is an understatement. With over 100 million unique visitors clocking up 1.5 billion video views every month, and 20,000+ new videos uploaded every day we couldn’t have hope for a better partner to introduce Flattr to the masses.
If you’re a film maker then all you need is a Dailymotion MotionMaker account and a Flattr account. Connecting the two will display Flattr buttons next to your videos and when people click the button they make a small micropayment that goes to you. For those not familiar how Flattr works we’ve made a short video that explains all.
There are already many successful video projects and film makers who’ve used Flattr as an additional revenue source to fund their next projects. The deal with Dailymotion makes it much easier. Eating our own dog food I created a short tutorial how to get going on Dailymotion platform.
If you’re a MotionMaker on Dailymotion then drop us your URL, we’re happy to promote you in our blog and other channels.
