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?
And on a similar note, as great as the advertising revenue on YouTube is, video creators can often earn even more money (and free gear, prizes, and more) by working with brands to feature their products in your videos. If your channel’s audience is very interested in streetwear clothing, fashion products, or tech devices for example, why not connect with a company that makes those kinds of products and see if they’ll pay you to feature their brand’s products?
There are a few useful tools that allow you to do just that, and for free. Check out the two below companies that help video creators find potential collaborators, as well as brands that may be interested in paying you to promote their products. We are not endorsed by either of these companies and the below language is directly from their websites. As always, do your homework before you jump onboard to make sure any company you may work with will be a good partner, and never hesitate to reach out to us if we can help or if you’d like advice.
