Rumble is a Video Platform where you can watch videos, exchange videos, host videos, earn money on your Videos, Rumble videos and invite new users.

I heard about Rumble from some network marketers on Webtalk who had used this Video tool for a while. Some of them had made quite a lot of money too just for uploading videos about their cats and dogs and travels. They told me ” You just have to start using Rumble – It is an awesome platform”.

However, I am a bit skeptic to unknown tools I never heard about before. Maybe you are too?

I started doing some research about it to find out more. And it is my research I share with you today. I am sure I am not the only one with questions about Rumble.

I hope this review will serve you well and that your questions about Rumble will be answered.

Final Discussion

I am myself a You Tube user and new Rumble user. However, I think Rumble is a great alternative or addition to You Tube and Vimeo. It is definitely a platform I want to put in my marketing toolbox and use. A place for content creators to reach a different audience, distributors and syndicates. It is also a great way to increase your traffic and earn money while doing it.

As I mentioned above it does not cost a lot for the basic monetization package, but for a small business it can be a huge investment to make.

I personally know many marketers and brands who have started using this platform because they have a referral program and it is easier to start making money with Rumble.

I think the chances to earn on your videos depends on the content, value and quality you can give your audience. Making a good description of the video will also help you succeed on this platform.

Should you use this platform for your Videos? My answer to that is Why not? Whether you choose to use it as an addition to other platforms or Just use this one is up to you.

  1. Thank you for your review on Rumble. I came across this service the other day and I just have to find out what is it all about. This is interesting! Do you think that Rumble is better than YouTube or Twitch? I love the fact that it is free to create an account and earn some money from it. I have to say that I am in love with the Speed! I am going to check it out and give it a try.

      Hi Nuttanee! You Tube is clearly the biggest platform. But for newbies it can be hard to get enough views and subscribers to start earning on their videos. I use Rumble in addition to You Tube. I have no experience with twitch. I do not use that platform. However it is a small cost to be a publisher. But it is easy to upload and publish. The speed is great. The only way to know how it works for you is to try it out. 

  2. Hey Hilde. Very interesting article. To be fair I’m just starting my adventure with online business and posts like this are extremely useful. I read before a bit about Rumble platform and to be fair opinions were quite mixed. Thank you for your detailed review, its seems as a good starting point to earn money online.

      Hi there! Thank you for your thoughts! As a newbie it is a great way to start earning on your videos. You Tube is of course the biggest platform, but it will take a while before you can monetize. I think rumble is an exciting platform and have a different audience than You Tube. You can also win prizes in Rumble battles.

  3. Hi, thank you for sharing this article, I have not heard of Rumble, sounds great actually, I am a copywriter and I am sure I can help others out by writing descriptions. Could you tell me a little more as to how this process works. I am definitely interested. Looking forward to some more great content.

      Hi Jean! Thank yo for the question. Yes you create an account. It is free. Then you can start watching videos and rumble the videos. You can earn $5 for every approved description. You click on the Write article in the navigation menu to find videos who wants help.

      It will pop up a write article button below the video if they need help. If the button is green with a dollar sign on it it means you will get paid if approved. Watch the video and write a description. Minimum 500 words. (affiliate disclaimers, links, imagery links other article links and description). 

      Submit your content and then you will see all the contributors if there are any oyhers and the status of your submitted content. Then you just need to wait to see if you get approved. Once approved your $5 will appear in your transactions area. 

      I hope this gave you some more clarity! Great Question. Thank you!

  4. Hi, Thanks for the brief, as you have mentioned regarding the description content. can we add affiliate links related to content (offcourse bridge page) in the description area. Is there any policy of Rumble for restriction of pramoting affiliate link into description?

    1. Author

      Hi Atul! Yes it is possible to add links to your promotional products in the description as far as I know as long as you write a disclaimer before the link. I have done that. It is a good rule to have a disclaimer in the description to make people aware that if they click through and make an offer you will make a small commission from it without any extra costs for them. It can also be smart to add a earning disclaimer on programs you promote about making money.
