How many times have you seen a YouTube video and just had to buy a product or a service related to the video? Ok, never. But still, if you want to spend your hard earned cash in these times of looming recession, now you can do it directly from YouTube. (via Mashable)
This is actually a pretty big deal for independent artist and media companies who now have a chance to turn a profit from music downloads and DVD sales. Before this new integration, publishers were pushing fans to another site — where they had to fill out all of their info — and lost many potential buyers who weren’t in the mood or didn’t have the time. This new YouTube program will lead to a new stream of profitability for web creators and I accept the challenge of finding a way to tap into it.
