The majority of YouTubers have NO idea what a YouTube partnership is.
A YouTube partnership is a program where you partner up with YouTube and you gain some very powerful benefits.
Benefits of YouTube Partnership:
YouTube will process your videos in a higher resolution and will serve them reliably.
YouTube will give you access to a much more detailed Insight tool. With the use of the Insight analytics tool, you can optimize your existing and upcoming videos to reach a larger audience.
YouTube will help your protect your content more. This means you have the ability to brand your channel with exclusive options only partners have access to.
YouTube will give the opportunity to have revenue sharing. This means that Google will overlay your video with ads and banners that will generate you a small profit each time someone clicks.
You must NOT have any copyright issues. You own the rights to everything you upload, they make NO exceptions.
You upload videos often that are each viewed thousands of times.
Tips on Partnership Program:
You can apply for the YouTube Partnership program. But before you apply, make sure that your account meets the qualifications. I highly recommend that you wait for YouTube to offer you the partnership program because your chances of being approved would be higher. Not everyone gets accepted to be a YouTube partner so to ensure your partnership, apply with a high upload view count and a high number of subscribers.
The YouTube insight tool is an extremely powerful tool to use to optimize your videos. It shows you the video's statistics by days, months, or years. It also shows you how people get to your video, who is watching your videos, where the hot spots are in the video, and where your viewers are from. This tool can help you figure out what to do to get people to your video if used correctly.
Annotations are text bubbles that YouTube lets you overlay your video with after it's uploaded. It's a great way to have interactive commentary in your videos. You can set up annotations to be links to other YouTube videos, channels or search results. Also, you can invite people to add their own annotations to your own videos. People have made interactive games with the use of annotations. You should make sure they don't bring attention away from important points in videos though. To avoid that, you can control when and where they pop up in your video along with the bubble type and color.
Other cool YouTube Secrets:
• Comment search allows you to search YouTube for people's comments.
• Insight for audience lets you find out what keywords certain audiences are searching.
• Caption Tube lets you add captions and subtitles as an overlay to your video.
