Collaborations are probably THE fastest way to grow your YouTube channel and get an entirely new influx of new subscribers. But they do require work and simply going up to another creator and asking for some cross-promotion will probably not get you the results you want. Amy is in the hotseat and together we all discuss how we do our best collaborations, how we connect with channels larger than us, and ideas for how you can do effective collaborations on your channel.

This Episode’s Sponsor

famebitThanks to FameBit for sponsoring this very first episode!

You’ll need a minimum of 5,000 YouTube subscribers to join and then you can browse a large marketplace of brands who are looking to sponsor channels like yours on YouTube.

Find a deal that fits your channel and audience, submit a proposal, work out the deal, make the video, and once it’s approved you’re paid with 24 hours.
