Washington, Jan 9 (ANI): Video sharing website YouTube has always been seen as a recreational site, but now it has been revealed that it has helped some people earn a six-figure salary off it.

Michael Buckley, 33, is one such person who says that he has been able to earn his six-figure through the site.

Uh, I do well, CBS News quoted him as saying.

I make over six figures a year, he said.

His high-energy, two-minute show What the Buck, a play on his last name, is the product of a 2,000 dollars camera, a pair of work-lights and a 6 dollars backdrop. The show averages 200,000 hits an episode.

I just wanted to create my own vehicle and I did, he stated.

Last year, YouTube invited its most popular, most-watched contributors to partner with them by adding banner ads to the bottom of video clips.

For every one thousand hits, advertisers pay 15 to 20 dollars. It’’s a fraction the cost of TV commercials, and they reach a more targeted audience.

Buckley’’s show ranks number eight on the Web site, and he believes that the Internet is the only way he could have made it big.

I do believe so, Buckley said.

I do believe that the Internet was my route to any sort of success, he added. (ANI)
