5 Steps to Becoming a YouTube Partner


Becoming a YouTube partner has never been easier. The benefits of doing this are such that it is well worth taking some time to find out how you can get this project off the ground.

How To Become A YouTube Partner

If you’re interesting in taking advantage of everything that becomes available to someone who is a YouTube partner, you really don’t need very much to get the ball rolling:

  • Views and subscribers.
  • Content that is going to engage and remain memorable.

That’s pretty much all you need to get going. Once you have these things, you can move on to the actual process of becoming a YouTube partner:

1. Your first 15 seconds are crucial.
This is the time in which you need to absolutely devastate the attention of the viewer. If you’re going to show someone how to make a meal, then you want to show them the meal itself first. After you’ve enticed, move right into a quick intro.

2. Consider the value of collaborations.
Collaborating with like-minded YouTube members can bring together your respective audiences. It can also make for a fantastic opportunity to work with people who are going to fire you up creatively.

3. Mind your SEO.
Search engine optimization is as crucial with a YouTube video, as it is with a blog post. Find out what your potential audience is searching for, and use those keywords in the title of your video. Make things even better by filling in the descriptions and tags for the video.

4. Look for meaningful, specialized content.
What do we mean? Videos can include contests, Q&A sessions, giveaways, tutorials, stories, or even interactive videos. Consider all of these options, and then determine for yourself if your audience would be interested in any of those things. Chances are, at least one or two of those things is going to be perfect for the kind of video you’re planning to create.

5. Become part of a network.
Even the most niche video imaginable has a network out there on YouTube. These networks provide formidable advertising potential, while giving you additional opportunities to find the users who are going to be genuinely interested in what you want to show them. Talk to network owners, and see if the whole concept is a good fit for you.

When you become a partner, you’re going to find yourself with the opportunity to earn more money, while also increasing the number of people connected by your content each day.
