Rumble is an alternative online video platform for YouTube. I joined several months ago after I could no longer watch some scientific videos over on YouTube.
Once on it, I liked how easy it was to use and I did a few videos about alternative social media on the Rumble network on my Rumble Channel.
I began to make a few cents on Rumble and thought, I need to explore this one more for my fellow bloggers and businesses.

The YouTube Alternative
Several months ago YouTube came out with the following statement:
“YouTube will remove content alleging fraud or errors that changed the outcome of the U.S. presidential election starting today, according to a statement by the company.
The video-sharing platform said the move comes because of Tuesday’s safe-harbor deadline for the election when enough states certified their election results for the president-elect.”
Now, some people are upset by this further censorship by YouTube and are looking for other places to go to post videos.
Recently the CEO of Rumble was on Fox Business News. “By the end of Q1 2021, we were at 31.9 million average monthly users,” Pavlovski told FOX Business. “April is looking fairly consistent.”
That is up from Q1 2020 when the platform had an average monthly unique user rate of 1.2 million.
That’s a huge increase in monthly users on the Rumble video network!

What is Rumble – The Online Video Platform
Rumble is an online video platform. The online platform is a social media network like YouTube with Rumbles being voted and commented on.
Rumble has been around since October of 2013. But 2020 is when the network began to expand with all the censorship around the United States election and the Coronavirus.
It has been so busy over there that their forum for questions has been shut down. It was supposed to come back up this week but hasn’t as of yet. Like Parler, the user base has been exploding.
Updated Terms of Service for Rumble Video
Fast forward to June 25, 2021, and notice that Rumble updated their terms of services.
They claimed after strong demand from their community for more transparency around policies on what you can and cannot do on Rumble and met this demand by modernizing, changing, and updating their Terms & Conditions.
They added 9 new additional rules you can see there from the previous link in terms and conditions of Rumble.
Also note: You also agree that you will not harvest or collect information about users of the Forum or use such information for the purpose of transmitting or facilitating transmission of unsolicited bulk electronic e-mail or communications.
Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, you further agree that you will not knowingly solicit or collect personal information from a child 18 years old or younger.
Getting Started with Rumble – The Online Video Platform
Rumble is very easy to use if you have used YouTube in the past. If not, it still is pretty easy. I have made a video as an overview. This video was done on the desktop version.
The mobile version is somewhat different and the ability to make money comes from the mobile app too.
Your Rumble Channel ID
You can have your own company/blog channel ID. But you first have to have 10 subscribers to do so. It took me a few minutes one day to figure that one out.
So you can learn it quickly here 🙂
Be Sure to Add Descriptions on Your Videos
This is another mistake made that you can easily learn from. You can add links to your blog post and any other places you want people to go to after watching your Rumble video. The length of videos does not seem to matter on Rumble, it is more about the videos themselves.
I see a lot of funny animal videos that make money and they are no longer at all. Some are less than a minute! Maybe that is why YouTube has YouTube shorts now!
Yes, you can see what others make on the Rumble channel too! A little incentive for you to upload videos on the Rumble – Online Video Platform.You can add links to your blog post and any other places you want people to go to after watching your Rumble video. #rumblevideo Click To Tweet
Combining Rumble with YouTube and Other Video Channels
You may also share your videos on other video platforms if you choose. I did this for the Rumble video but not for my Parler videos. You have all kinds of licensing options to choose from once you upload your Rumble video.
If you choose to add YouTube be sure to post that video to YouTube first. Then when you upload it to Rumble it will ask for the YouTube video link.
Scheduling is another feature that Rumble offers so you don’t have to post it right NOW. (YouTube also allows you to schedule videos.)

Monetized Rumble Videos – How to Make Money with Rumble!
Yes, be patient with this one! See below for my Rumble video examples. It’s been a while days and monetization took several weeks. (They have since been monetized but not all are making money.)
With more people jumping from YouTube to Rumble I expect it may take longer.
Other Ways to Make Money on Rumble App
Now with the mobile app for Rumble, you can make money with the swipe key. Rumble users can make .25 cents per day (5 cents per video) for tagging them with the swipe. (Rumble will be updating their monetization for 2021 – see more below.)
Referrals to Rumble – The Online Video Platform
When you refer other people to rumble with your referral link you can earn dollars too. Just invite your friends, clients, and family to join the Rumble network. There are so many different videos that there is something for everyone.
Lottery on Rumble – The Online Video Platform
You can win via Battle Tickets through the Rumble app. I awoke one morning to receive an email that I had won $5.00 via a Battle Ticket on Rumble.
Another time I won $10.00 from the lottery. Entries into the lottery are by the swiping of videos.
On the Rumble app, you must watch a video for at least 9 seconds before swiping. Many of the funny animal videos are less than one minute and some are just under 30 seconds.
Of course, there are also lengthy videos on various topics throughout the Rumble network. Whether you use Rumble for business, blogging, or pleasure there really is something for everyone here.
What is the Rumble Camera?
You can now download the Rumble camera from the Google Play Store or Apple Apps. This camera app allows you to make money with videos that you film with your phone’s camera.
Other social media platforms don’t pay what you deserve, you lack visibility, transparency, and there are no useful tools that allow you to control distribution. Rumble’s camera app does all this for you.

Livestreaming Comes to Rumble Now
I know many fellow bloggers out there who love to use Livestream. Well, Rumble has started to offer live streaming now for paying customers!
Those that have the FREE Rumble App will also be able to soon.
What Are Rumble Rants?
Recently Rumble has introduced its live tipping feature, Rumble Rants, on all live streams.
“Now is the time to change the creator economy by tipping to your favorite creators on Rumble, instead of the competition,” Rumble said when announcing the feature. “Do it only for 1 reason; creators deserve more. Rumble will take a smaller fee than YouTube.”

You may have heard about Rumble’s paid subscriptions now. Creators on Rumble can use an integrated Locals button to set up paid communities.
Locals bills itself as a platform that allows independent creators to control their own destiny, grow communities and make money. All this while Rumble currently has 50 million monthly unique visits and 150,000 creators. (per Reclaim the Net.)
