YouTube Partner Manager overview

The YouTube Partner Manager team exists to help you get the most out of your YouTube channel. Our invite-only programme supports creators who are looking to learn growth strategies, connect with like-minded creators or just want to chat with someone knowledgeable at YouTube.

What is a partner manager? 

A partner manager's job is to help creators unlock their potential. You can think of a partner manager as your own personal YouTube expert.

These are just a few of the ways that 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 optimisation strategies and answering any questions that 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 programmes and offerings: Be one of the first to know about new creator programmes, like access to new YouTube features or taking part in experimental pilot programmes.

Our Partner Management programme is an invite-only, limited-time privilege. We offer it for a six-month period to certain channels that meet our eligibility criteria. We determine partner eligibility according to channel size, channel activity and adherence to YouTube Community Guidelines. Learn more
