YouTube Partner Manager overview

The YouTube Partner Manager team exists to help you get the most out of your YouTube channel. Our invitation-only programme supports creators in various ways. Creators who are looking to learn growth strategies, connect with like-minded creators or chat with someone knowledgeable at YouTube will benefit.

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 to succeed on YouTube:

  • One-to-one support: Partner Managers meet with you regularly on a one-to-one basis. You can talk about crafting personal channel goals or channel optimisation strategies, and ask any questions that you may have about running a successful YouTube channel.
  • Exclusive invitations 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 invitation-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
