Hi, I’m Stephen founder of free yoga TV and I’m so glad that you have decided to become a contributing teacher with us. If you’ve received an email from uson youtube, it means that you are already doing exactly what we believe in. And, we would just like to help to keep spreading yoga to as many people as possible. If you are watching this for the first time and you would like to become a Free Yoga TV contributor then send us a link to one of your classes and we would love to take a look.
Here’s how it works. With us you will get a teacher membership and you’ll be able to log in and uploaded and embed your YouTube class to our search engine on Free Yoga TV. As such you will be able to keep any and all monetization on your videos that comes to you. But, just to allow it to spread to our thousands of followers at free yoga TV and on top of that, as long as you give us your paypal email address, then we will send you a portion of anything that comes in on our google advertising at Free Yoga TV
Now, here’s the part where it’s exciting. We also accept donations at free yoga TV and have a premium membership status with monthly donations. So, if you’d like to become a part of our donations, all we ask is that you upload a second video that is unlisted and does not have any ads. These videos will only be available to our premium members and you will also receive a portion all of the donations that come into Free Yoga TV
Now, the more activity on your videos the larger percentage of donations that you will receive So, the more shares, the more comments, reviews and the more friends that you let know about your video and free yoga TV, the larger percentage of the donations that you receive.
If you had any further questions please do not hesitate to contact us and we look forward to working with you to continue to bring you know that to as many people as we possibly can. As always Namaste, peace be with you.
Stephen Beitler, founder
I use music in my class to which I don’t own the rights, can I still be a Free Yoga teacher?
YES! But, unfortunately you will not be able to be a part of the premium membership, as you will automatically have ads on your video. But, your class will still be searchable through our database for all of our members and you will still receive a portion of our revenue from ads!
How do I upload a second unlisted video with no ads?
This can seem confusing because youtube will not allow you to upload the same video twice, but there are a few options:
1. Upload the video on a second YouTube account
2. Convert the video to a different file type
3. Add a few frames at the beginning or the end of the video/ perhaps the FreeYoga logo 🙂
4. Send us an email with your teacher name, the name of the video you wish to have with no ads and we will do it for you!
– This last option may take up to a few weeks and requires you to sign a release form so that we can use your image, since you will not be choosing to upload it yourself, and it will become part of the FreeYoga database. You can request we remove your class at any time and we will oblige, but be sad to see you go.
Okay, I am ready to add my classes to the FreeYoga database! … How do I do that?
