How To Become A YouTube Partner
Becoming A YouTube Partner
How do you become a YouTube partner? Well that is quite easy and it does take a small amount of commitment to achieve this goal and quite frankly if you can't be bothered to upload some quality videos that are targeted towards a specific niche then do not proceed to learn any more here. If you are thinking of become a YouTube partner, then do please read on, because I never thought I'd get there, but I did and it took me 1 year and a couple of months to become a YouTube partner.
So what is required to become a partner with the Internets 2nd largest search engine? Well there are some factors that seem quite obvious, but they are essential for becoming a partner and the first one is Original videos - Without original videos you'd have no chance of ever getting approved for this partnership. The videos must be content that you created and actually own, so if you've previously sold it to some other company then you no longer own it, so you can't use it.
One of the key factors that I've always tried to stick with is to create every video that is actually being searched upon around the Internet, so I do a bit of Internet research on what could be popular based on keywords and keyword phrases and when starting out I'd do a few video series which seemed to be quite popular as I linked them together as a play-list in my YouTube account.
Getting accepted as a YouTube partner is about having lots of video views, so you should make your insights for your videos available and you should take steps to increase your channel views as well as your video views and then try and get more subscribers to your YouTube channel, this is achieved by interacting with the YouTube community more than anything else and you should really target the niche that your channel is about, for instance mine is about fantasy art and art in general, so I would interact more with other artists on YouTube and leave feedback and comment on others videos too.
YouTube has set things up quite well for specialist groups on just about every topic, so search out groups that you can join and add a few of your videos too and comment on others videos there too as well as others channel pages. Don't rely on people to just comment on yours as they find you, no instead be actively participating in the wider YouTube community but always within your set niche.
Friendships with other YouTube users will create a network, because they might recommend your videos to their subscribers or even share your videos around a bit, so it is in your best interests and theirs to be a friendly Tuber.
In a previous Hubpage I talked about optimizing your YouTube videos because that is very important to get found on YouTube, because the more views that I get to my YouTube videos are gained by one of two top ways, by Search within YouTube and also by Related videos, which if you tag your videos correctly then they'll appear on others video pages too, which is a nice side effect of effective tagging with the correct keywords.
So in conclusion the best ways to become a YouTube partner are:
- Original video content you created and own.
- Get traffic to your videos and channel page
- Increase subscribers too
- Create a mix of videos, reviews, tutorials and even the odd crazy video.
- Be a good Tuber and embrace other YouTubers.
- Promote your channel page link.
- Treat it like a business website.
- Have fun.
Becoming a YouTube partner can be quite lucrative if you have a good few high traffic videos that relate to top dollar ads well and are very relevant to your videos. Again it's all about experimentation with the Partner program, especially with video content and titles and descriptions to maximize your chances of making any money.
