Monetize YouTube Videos on Facebook
What is SociVids?
SociVids is a WordPress Video Marketing plugin to monetize YouTube videos. You can add any 3rd party graphic, Optin Forms, JVZoo buy buttons, or even PayPal buy buttons right into your videos. And the best and innovative part is, that you can post your optimized videos right inside Facebook’s Newsfeed, Apps or on any Facebook group or Fanpage.
What’s so special about SociVids?
By using SociVids you don’t have to try to convince your visitors to leave Facebook and go to your marketing pages (squeeze page, bridge page, sales page) first to show them your CTA or optin form. Now they can perform your wanted actions right inside Facebook’s Newsfeed or inside Facebook (FanPages, Apps/Tabs, Groups).
And Facebook will reward you for letting your ad clickers stay on Facebook with lower ad costs!
What kind of monetization tools can you add?
- Add Video Caption and Thumbnail. Over scribe these standard settings from YouTube with your own as they appear on Facebook!
- Clickable Lower Third Images or Images below the video. You can use the built-in library of lower thirds or add your own. Redirect your viewers to any URL you want (if they click on your lower third/image below the video).
- Opt-in Forms as overlay over your video. SociVids has an API integration and can be used with AWeber, GetResponse and MailChimp. (It doesn’t support other ESPs or raw HTML code opt-in forms but saves emails to CSV file.) After opt-in you can redirect your subscribers to any URL you want. You can add your own subscribe button if you want or use the library of buttons.
- PayPal order buy button. Show your PayPal order button inside the video (upper left or right) or below your video.
- JVZoo order buy button. This time as overlay centered on or at the bottom of your video (with cancel/exit text below the video).
- Countdown timer. Set your time and the timer shows below your video.
For all the options, you can set the time when you want to start showing them.
You can also combine options and use one, two, three or all four of them.
After you save your setting, you can either use the embed code to place your video on any website/blog you want. Or you can use the new created link for posting on Facebook.
However, you need an SSL certificate on your site in order to post to Facebook.
Usually, you have to pay for an SSL certificate, but several hosting companies such has HostGator or GoDaddy will give you a free one (and install the certificate) if you use their hosting services. Or use CloufFlare where you can use a shared SSL certificate for free. (For more info how to setup a free SSL and properly protected and fast loading website with CloudFlare, check out my review about Cloud Defender)
You don’t have to replace the embed code if you make changes/edit your settings afterward.
SociVids has these other features…
- Easy Dashboard interface. So even a complete newbie can now easily monetize videos.
- Stats and Tracking. Watch how often your videos are seen and how many optins you got.
- Facebook TOS Compliant.
Are there any shortcomings?
This product has originally been released as a web-based solution.
Unfortunately, some ‘bad apple’ users have abused the SociVids platform and used it to post some very inappropriate content to Facebook. Because of this Facebook naturally needed to take action to protect their users and has blocked video posts from Socivids server.
Therefore the creator has changed the product into a WordPress plugin.
(Note: you need an SSL certificate to use this tool on Facebook)
Although I like the web based concept more, I still think it’s a great tool for Facebook and Video Marketers.
Unfortunately, you can only use SociVids only with the 3 major Autoresponders (AWeber, GetResponse and MailChimp). However, the software keeps a .csv file for all your email subscriptions. Hence you can use the system without the Autoresponder integration.
Furthermore, I miss the (common) feature that you can set an end time (especially for your lower thirds). Now you can only set your start time when the Lower Third, Graphic, Optin Form or Order Buttons will occur.
Also, I would prefer the option that the JVZoo buy button could be placed below the video instead of inside the video.
Overall, these are just minor items, and maybe will be solved with future releases. No show stoppers at all.
Anyway, I still find the software useful. And I will especially use it in combination with advertising on Facebook on desktops and right-hand-side ads (no mobile ads of course).
Why should you buy SociVids?
With SociVids, you’ll be (finally!) able to monetize YouTube right inside Facebook. This software will save you time and money in 2 ways.
You don’t need to pay money and spend your time to try to convince people to leave Facebook and go to your own marketing web pages (squeeze pages etc.). And Facebook supports their advertisers, who keep their visitors on Facebook, with lower ad costs!
Hence, a great feature and must have tool for any Facebook Advertiser/Marketer.

There is other software on the market that can add CTAs or add opt-in forms as overlays to YouTube videos and that you can embed on your website/blog (like Social Mobi Videos). However, these tools can’t play your video right inside Facebook’s Newsfeed.
