AVOD stands for "Advertising Video On Demand" and is a growing trend in the digital media industry. It refers to an online video platform that serves both video content and ads to viewers. Content creators get paid through advertising revenue, allowing them to produce more engaging content without relying on subscription fees, sponsorships or other forms of payment. AVOD platforms offer a great way for smaller companies and independent creators to monetize their content without having to make large upfront investments. This makes it possible for them to reach a wider audience while still earning money from their work.
