About www.mytipglass.com
 
www.mytipglass.com was created by Attorney WILLIS EVERETT SMITH, ESQ of KINGWOOD, TEXAS who is the owner and CEO of the site, as well as its first video contributor. It's Logo and Name were Trademarked and Copywrited in November of 2009 at the United States Patent And Trademark Office in Washington D.C. with all rights reserved. The Marks also enjoy International Trademark protections. 

The website was created to allow people, both video contributors and non-contributor viewers in a social video setting to view video(s) that have been uploaded into the website wherein the video contributors' may receive a contribution or "TIP" from the viewer or other contributors after watching their video. The video contributors are paid by PAYPAL which is the sole payment processor.

The site was created to allow the full expression of gratitude in a monetary sense to the video contributor for the hard work, entertainment value, information and sacrifice that it took them to create, find, and edit videos. Videos for the most part  take a long time to make, can cost money, and expose people to positive or negative criticism or accolades from third parties with nothing else to show for it. The millions and millions of views that the vast majority or videos receive from the various video websites on the internet likely made money for the video site OWNER through increased advertisement  revenue, views, and back links. Even if a video on the site received very few views the NUMBER OF VIDEOS viewed on these websites still increased the site's popularity and earned its owner money in the long run. It is a well known fact that many videos on the Internet received millions and millions of views, but for the most part the video's contributor received nothing in return. Why? Well, the link between the two was always seen in a commercial, product, or service sense…i.e. if someone were selling something or had a service to offer then they could make a video about it and place it on YOUTUBE or wherever and try and sell it. However, what if the person were not selling anything or they were not in a business, but were just giving "advice", or they were "displaying their talent", or explaining a "how- to-do something" or they made you "laugh" or "cry" or were "cute and cuddly" or were "inventive" or "made you think" or "gave you words of inspiration that moved you", or displayed great "poetry" or "rhyme" or "recreated a movie or show in their own way" or they "sang a song in a different language that you thought was not possible", or made a "Rap Opera" that was entertaining or anything else that you thought was worthy of a small TIP. This website was created for all those situations and countless others that people have created or will create in the future that may have some TIP value to someone out there. Instead of people having to sell something or partner with someone or get a commission or store something, here they can just sell THEMSELVES, their talent, their expression, their individuality, their needs, their expertise, and their interest. They may not receive anything in return or they may receive something…but at least they have a shot at receiving something without having to receive millions of video views in the process because of this website and will likely do a better job or make a better video because of it. This website was also created to help to encourage people to make better more entertaining, educational, or instructional videos by them realizing that the videos that they are making can earn them money if it is produced with care, is entertaining, is original and has a purpose.

Unlike other video platforms that cater to large companies or run advertisements on the videos before you can watch the video, or showcase popular entertainers as the focus, www.mytipglass.com has a PEOPLE to PEOPLE focus wherein each person is given their own video channel to market their videos separately or in bulk with a TIPGLASS LOGO BUTTON displayed on each video to receive TIPS. So, unlike YouTube, no one has to compete with a popular artist for face time if they are doing a cover of that artist's song just because the artist may have more views on other video websites. The www.mytipglass.com LINKS can be placed on your FACEBOOK video links area, MYSPACE video links area, YouTube video discriptions areas (See our FAQ for instructions),BLOGS, and by providing the links in any EMAIL service for anyone to see, click-on and make a TIP. The location of the MYTIPGLASS video can also be easily marketed on or over an existing YOUTUBE, YAHOO, METACAFE , OR HULU video by simply placing an IN VIDEO TEXT overlay announcement of where the video can be viewed on the www.mytipglass.com link to their video location, or wherever links can be placed. The www.mytipglass.com  website is very different from the other video websites because the video contributors on this website will not likely just leave their videos PARKED and UNATTENDED because the marketing and appearance of their videos may effect their TIPS. In addition, because members don't need their own videos to participate in the site, they can actually search the internet to find or prospect for possible video's that are FREE to use so long as they are not Copyright or Trademark protected.  Members on this site are more likely to revisit the site and refer the site to friends or family and send them their links. These folks are more likely to be their first line of TIPPERS. The members here are also more likely to market their links all over the Internet in order to increase their TIPS…this is encouraged.

In addition, video contributor members on this site will more than likely visit other TIPGLASS video contributor's videos to see what other TIPGLASSERS are doing to try and make money, and they may even TIP these members as well. Parents can also set up an account and use their PayPal information in order to enable their children or grandchildren to up-load their videos on their pages and receive TIPS.  Also, the site has various Video Display categories for TIPS that are unique to the internet and are themselves a revolution in video display technology. These categories include "MEDICAL REQUEST", "RECENTLY DIVORCE", "KIDS", "WEIRD", etc. Finally, the www.mytipglass.com video website truly addresses a fundamental GAP that has been in existence on video websites since the dawn of the internet, and specifically video viewing…that is that most video websites are famous for getting people a lot of views and even making some people famous. But what about making people, especially the ones who DON'T have one million views, some money? What good is fame without fortune?….you can't spend fame. The video contributors on www.mytipglass.com will likely market their video links from www.mytipglass.com in the hopes of duplicating their viewer popularity and fame from the other video websites like YOUTUBE, YAHOO, ETC., with a goal to receive a close to equal amount of TIPS. Finally, video contributors can easily keep track of their TIPS through PAYPAL because they will receive notification of the TIP amount once they are TIPPED by PayPal.
