The ABCs of how to be successful on YouTube: Alliance, Branding, Collaboration and more!

Success on YouTube is typically not a solo event. It takes other people watching, commenting and supporting each other.

Thanks to YouTube, regular people are re-inventing themselves and creating alliances, building businesses and brands while collaborating with others. Collabs are a good way to support and promote each other.

Even though monetization has been extended to more channels, channels should still strive for full partnership. There are branding options available only to partnered channels such as the banner, the branding box where you can put direct links to websites. But I think the most important partner feature is being able to create your own video thumbnail! Thumbnails can help draw viewers to your video when it shows up in the recommended video box.

The Brilliant Collaboration Video!
