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 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.

How do I know the emails I am receiving are really from YouTube?
We know that you might get a lot of people contacting you about your channel. Here's how you can check that an email is actually from the YouTube team:
Check the email domain: Make sure that the email is from an @google.com, @youtube.com or @partnerships.withyoutube.com email address. Emails from any other domains that claim to be from YouTube or Google are likely to be fake.
Check the links: Make sure that the URL of any links or forms included in the email end with youtube.com, withgoogle.com, withyoutube.com or youtube.force.com.
