Welcome to the channel on today’s video, we are talking about paid promotion, um membership, adverts, sponsorships, uh patreon and buy me a coffee. Now i’ve been wanting to make this video for a little while now and more recently, i’ve noticed a few little comments on some of my videos or videos of mine that have been shared on other social media. That’S kind of made me make this video now so. Prima, we’re going to talk about is paid promotions that little paid promotion tab. You see in the bottom left hand, corner left right anyway in the bottom corner. You see that little tab. Now all the other stuff. I mentioned memberships patreon sponsorships all that stuff that’s a choice. That is something that you as a youtuber. If you’ve got a channel, if you’re making content that stuff, you can choose. Se vuoi farlo, the paid promotion bit is kind of not a choice. So before we go on, let’s go and have a look at what google say about paid promotion. So what does google say about paid promotions? Diamo un'occhiata. What do we mean when we talk about paid product placements and sponsorships and endorsements paid product placements? A piece of content that created for a third party in exchange for compensation or where that third party’s brand message or product is integrated directly into the content, brand message or product is integrated into the content. If you get sent anything from a third party it’s a product placement, you have to put that it’s a paid promotion regardless.
That is my interpretation of it. You might think slightly different to it. So this is a video not published yet and we go into it. On the little paid promotion, but you’ve got a tab. Dice, if you accept anything of value from a third party, to make your video. You must. Let us know, faremo, show viewers, a message that tells them your video contains paid promotion. If you accept anything of value, anything of value from a third party – tick that box so that’s, what google says now, if we look at what i’ve got on the bench here, this was sent to me by armor paid promotion. This was sent to me by maker fire pay promotion. This was sent to me by banggood paid promotion. This i bought myself not paid promotion. Hopefully you can understand, where i’m coming from with that, if someone sends you something, you have to disclose that it’s a pay promotion, because you’re being sent something from a company to promote either them or the product that they’re selling, so that so that one is the One you don’t really have a choice and if you see any and i’m not talking i’m, not talking about just the rc community, i watch more videos outside of the radio control hobby than i do within so i’m talking just in general about youtubers that don’t disclose. When they’re getting products to review other one in the past has been called dishonest or shilling, bangered or just getting paid to say, things are good in fact, i’m telling you that i’ve been given that product to review, which, in my eyes, i’m being honest, not dishonest, Channel memberships, the reason i’m, not a fan of channel memberships – is because i don’t know what the cost is it’s about like six dollars.
I don’t know what it is for me. You shouldn’t have to pay money to get extra stuff. In my eyes, i make the content for you. You watch the content that’s good enough for me. I don’t expect anyone to have to pay to sort of stand out against anyone else, who’s watching the stuff, so the membership side i’m not interested in it. The patreon as well same thing, i struggle enough just to get videos out, let alone have to put extra content on or do you like live streams for members or posts for members only and stuff like that? So not really something for me. Channel sponsorships i’ve been over the last, probabilmente 12 months more so in the last six months, i’ve had various companies contact me for sponsorships um, more recently, shadow legends or no thank you, um btob, quite a good one. I had a thought about that one, maybe in the future, if i can make it relevant, lots of other ones match match, make or match something um, i think that’s a dating app. They offered me 500. No, some of these sponsorship deals are worth. You know for some channels, thousands i mean i think for me. Maybe i could get five to seven hundred dollars for doing a 60 second advert, which is a lot of money just to do 60 seconds to promote someone. 500 is a lot, but what i want to do is get anything sort of that’s not really related to what i do.
I just don’t think it fits so if someone comes in with a sponsorship deal and i think it will work with the channel, i may do it in the future, but for now it’s, not something i’m interested in and product reviews. I get so many emails asking me to review stuff. A lot of it is relatively sort of low grade stuff and again i like to keep some cheaper stuff on the channel. I like to do some named brand stuff and i like to do some more expensive stuff as well, but what i don’t like doing is anything that’s more, for you know very, very young, kids or just stuff that isn’t gon na be any good. So i push probably 70 percent of that away as well, so we’ve done pay promotion, we’ve done memberships, we’ve done patreon we’ve done product reviews that leaves buy me. A coffee and adverts youtube adverts right. This is where i’m gon na rant a little bit as well. Adverts in your videos, this is a slight little bug: bear of mine for uh channels that i’ve watched and looked at comments before. If someone comments – Oh mio Dio, you’ve got so many adverts in this video or why have you got so many adverts or ads, spamming and stuff like that and the number one reply from um the content creator? Is it wasn’t me, it was youtube that added them or google now they’re, not lying youtube or google.
Whoever you want to look at that add the ads. Add the ads. They do quite often put a lot in there automatically. Some of my videos have been 10 to sort of 12 minuti di lunghezza. Sometimes i’ve had four mid roll ads in it, so you get one at the start, four in the middle one at the end, that’s six adverts in like a ten or eleven minute. Video is crazy, but saying youtube done it not me, although maybe true changing the amount of adverts in your video is just as easy or easier than quite a lot of the other stuff that you have to manually change as well. So let’s take this 14 and a half minute video let’s go to monetization, manage mid roll ads. You’Ll see one advert in that 14 minute video. I removed three from that one i think, and just put the one in so you so you get one at the start, one in the middle one at the end, and i think, for a 14 minute, video that’s pretty good, going that’s. How i do it it’s easy enough to do, go into monetization, remove the ads and put them where you like, or leave it up to youtube, E poi, when someone says, why have you got a hundred adverts in your video just tell them that youtube done it? Not you, if i’m watching a video and it’s kind of like a mediocre one and i get to you know maybe halfway through and then an advert comes on.
I just click off it and go elsewhere. So for me, i think if you put too many adverts in, you can actually push people to stop watching because they might have already watched three adverts and then the video is starting to get a little bit boring. Another advert comes up, they are gone. So my advice try not to spam adverts too much, then that leaves me with buy me a coffee. So the reason i do buy me a coffee, no pressure. You don’t have to join any you can join. You can join as a membership, but i don’t really offer anything extra and you can just buy me a coffee if you like the content. If you want to support the channel, you can buy me a coffee or you cannot buy me a coffee. It makes no difference. You don’t get treated any differently. If you buy me a coffee or if you don’t buy me one completely up to you. I drink lots i’d appreciate some coffee, but other than that, quindi questo è. How i do the channel. It is completely up to you um. If you’ve got your own channel, how you manage your channel, this isn’t me telling you what you should be doing, apart from the paid promotion bit that’s the only bit that really sort of bugs me with some of the channels out there, the rest of the stuff It’S completely up to you how you do it. This is how i do my channel, and hopefully that gives you a slightly better experience when you’re watching um the videos – and there might have been some stuff in this video that you didn’t realize that i did.
But i do anyways link below to buy me.
