It's no secret that it's extremely difficult to monetize short-form, user-generated video on the Internet. YouTube is the obvious example of this reality.
While everyone is struggling to find answers to this supposed dilemna, the answer is really right before us: create long-form video and put it up online.
Why? People using the Internet have already let it be known through surveys and polls that they are more than willing to exchange watching ads for free content.
Oddly enough, it's just the opposite for short-form video, as viewers have no interest in watching ads in exchange for viewing short video content on the Internet.
