When trying to build your YouTube subscriber base, one of the most effective things you can do is collaborate with other YouTube channels. It’s a proven way to gain new followers and is a frequently recommended strategy by YouTube itself, yet YouTube has not provided any tools that are designed to help you find collaborators.
Collaborations can be a very effective way to introduce your channel to new viewers and give them a reason to subscribe to your channel. While searching for similar channels and sending them messages within YouTube may sometimes work, most channel owners don’t check their YouTube emails and notifications frequently. You may be able to track down more effective contact info by searching for their email address or Twitter handle, but wouldn’t it be helpful to know exactly what channels are already interested in collaborating with you?
