We came across ClipFlip today. It is an app you install on either your iPhone or on your Android phone. Once registered with ClipFlip and Paypal you basically just film something useful on your phone and upload it to the ClipFlip servers using the app. They then watch your video and decide if they want your video and how much they are willing to pay for it. Your video will be then posted on the various ClipFlip channels on the internet. Such as YouTube and Vimeo.
This all sounds too good to be true. I guess they get a lot of rubbish videos from people just trying to get money. Have a read of their terms and conditions which contains various rules about what you can’t post. But if inspiration isn’t your thing then they have listed a load of starter topics to get you going.
