First, you need to create an account with us. This involves providing us with basic information like your email and name. We take your privacy very seriously and don’t share this information with others.
After sign up, we also have you register with Google’s advertising program, AdSense.
As you know, we split advertisement revenue 50-50 with you. This is all done through Google. All the advertisements that will be placed throughout your tutorials come directly from Google. Google splits the ad revenue and handles all your financial information. They send us half, and they send you half. This costs you nothing, and involves no obligation. We never see or handle your financial information in the process. All finances are handled by one of the largest companies in the United States, Google, Inc!
After you create an account, write an interesting tutorial (preferably with pictures documenting each step), and submit it for approval. We’ll read your tutorial, make sure it’s up to our quality standards, and approve it. Once approved, your tutorial will have its very own page on TutorialTub.com. You can submit as many tutorials as you like!
Once live, each of your tutorials will have Google advertisements unobtrusively placed within. These ads are “pay per click.” That is, if someone finds your tutorial and clicks on one of the ads, you get paid.
You will be able to check your earnings from your Google AdSense account (that you create during sign up) anytime you wish.

This is handled by Google. All the ad revenue from this website is sent directly to Google. They split it, send you half, and send us half. We never touch your portion, nor see your financial information.

You will need to “link” your AdSense account with our website (we walk you through this during sign up). This allows you to receive a 50% share of the revenue your tutorials generate. Note that revenue will only be split for tutorials on this website. Your funds from other websites won’t be touched.
