Work with a partner manager to help grow your channel

The YouTube Partnerships team exists to help you get the most out of your YouTube channel. Whether you’re looking to learn strategies for growing your subscriber base, connecting with like-minded creators, or just want to chat with someone knowledgeable at YouTube — we’d like to get in touch! 

What is a partner manager? 

A partner manager’s job is to help creators unlock their potential. YouTube has partner managers who are waiting to help you grow your channel and take it to the next level. You can think of a partner manager as your own personal YouTube expert — there for you every step of the way.

These are just a few of the ways a partner manager can help you succeed on YouTube:

  • One-on-one support: Partner managers meet with you regularly on a one-on-one basis to talk about topics like crafting personal channel goals, channel optimization strategies, and answering any questions you may have about running a successful YouTube channel. 
  • Exclusive invitation to creator events and workshops: With a partner manager, you can expect ongoing invitations to connect with like-minded creators at YouTube-sponsored events and educational workshops. 
  • First look at new creator programs and offerings: Be one of the first to know about new creator programs, like access to new YouTube features or taking part in experimental pilot programs.
