YouTube Partner Programme: Join Us!

You are producing your own content on YouTube. You have built up a decent audience. What next? Well, how about following in the footsteps of Hot For Words and Panacea81 and signing up for the YouTube Partner Programme?


Since January 2008, YouTube users in the UK have been able to apply for partner status, which – once awarded – qualifies them for a share in the revenues generated by advertising laid against their videos. As you have probably noticed, we have developed a number of new advertising formats in the year-and-a-half since the programme was launched and partners can pick and choose which they would like to see appear against their content.


If you are still not sure about applying, maybe these bullet points from the YouTube Partnership Team will change your mind:

• As the No.1 video site on the Internet and the No.2 search engine in the world, YouTube will break new boundaries for your video content and open new frontiers for your brand, whatever that may be. With millions of unique viewers each month, this represents potentially enormous exposure for you and your work.

• You will have the opportunity of generating revenue from your videos through different types of ads, such as InVideo ads and banner ads.

• You will have unique tools available only to partners like the "Partner Interactive Banner" which will make your channel unique as well as access to various tools that YouTube offers to protect copyright holders.

• Through our unique Analytics tool you will be able to create content that will enhance the targeting of viewers and advertisers, by analysing general demographics of your audience, your competitors and much more.

• Finally, YouTube tries to offer the best viewing experience to its viewers and users, and you can now upload your videos in HD quality, using a 16:9 aspect ratio.


Remember: In order to qualify for the YouTube Partner Programme, you must meet some minimum criteria, chief among which are owning the copyright and distribution rights for all audio and video content that you upload. That said, head here to apply. If this has inspired you to create an account on YouTube and lay the groundwork for your new show, head here. And if you’re still not sold on the idea of joining the programme, you can browse the list of individuals, organisations and businesses that have already taken the plunge here.


We look forward to welcoming you onboard. Have fun,


Jamie and The YouTube UK Partnerships Team

Don't see the point in the partner programme.

TheHonestGuys said...

The Partner program is a great idea. We tried ourselves to get it but we're unsuccessful.. :(

Saying that we encourage people to have a go themselves..and good luck.,

I'm a psychic, and I feel a connection to someone, I just don't know who yet, but it's powerful, if you feel it, too, reading this, it's probably you, click my name, actually don't, what you find might scare you. I desperately wanted to find out who it is, although you shouldn't click my name, it might scare you.

Here's an idea. We'll apply for partnership if you actually stop saying 'no' for unorginial content. www.youtube.com/user/fellonthedoorproject apparently doesn't have 'original content' yet everything he makes his original.

DurhamBoyz said...

can i become partners

yuwie2008 said...

Not sure about this!

KGBLikeMe said...

No thanks. But I would like the original channel design to be restored.

locksleynet said...

I think it's a great idea. Like the new channels and also like the idea of the partner program. YouTube is an amazing platform for people that enjoy making and watching all sorts of videos. I welcome the ideas that the YouTube team have in store for us all :-)

I was thinking about becoming partner but when I click apply it says, "Thank you for your interest. Based on an automated review of your account, it is unlikely that you will qualify for the YouTube Partner Programme.." If I applied would I get it? I'd really like to become one, not for the money in Ad's because I don't mind about getting money youtube can keep it. I just want to have a banner and somewhere for the people that have helped me in the side of my channel. Youtube please let me know if I should apply because I don't want to wait 2 months before I can apply again.

TheBorzoi said...

I've applied before and was told that I don't have enough viewership, yet there are partnered channels with no subscribers and very little views.

If you expect people to apply to become partners, you need to treat everyone equally and not pick favourites.

You also need to be more specific with the required amount of subscribers/views.

I have writen to youtube, no reponse I have flagged videos, no response,.

lareinetammy said...

davekm43 said...

That right they've even ignored this so far. It's been 20hrs

davekm43 said...

24hrs still no response

dctcool said...

Why was EvilBrainProductions suspended? the guy never uploaded anything that wasn't his own work nor did he ever have any videos taken down in the past OR have any content that would be deemed a TOS violation? in fact he should have been made partner on the UK front ages ago. please guys can you sort this out there's a theory he may have been a victim of false flagging
