I was thinking when I can do so I want to put a series of animated cartoons or web comics up on these sites- can I make money by doing so? If so, how can I make money doing this?

@JGoldman10,
It's not impossible but it is rather difficult, as you need to do some marketing, at least in the beginning, in order to develop a following. Generally, this involves social media engagement, e. g. garnering followers on Twitter and fans on Facebook, and presenting links, etc. to them. Too much presentation of links can be offputting to most people, and I'm afraid there's no magic formula for when it tips over from being not enough to too much. Furthermore, most people need to see something about 7 or so times before they will make a purchase, so that can mean a carpeting type of campaign. They are hard to do right, without sliding into spam territory.

Someone just told me:

If your channel has enough subscribers you can become a youtube partner and you will get paid for your views. I believe this is the easiest way to make money off of videos online. Most people say you need between 250 - 500 subscribers.
