Ku6: High Visitor Count But Low Revenues
Ku6 generated less than 4% of Youku’s revenues since it pivoted to a user-generated content model. Although it would appear Ku6 is disappearing from the public life, they still enjoy 250 million unique visitors per month. The reason behind their low revenue comes from shedding off brand advertising, which resulted in RMB 120 million in revenues per year. Due to the costly copyrighted content to support, through brand advertising, Ku6 have opted for a performance based ad system.
