Do I have to join a YouTube Multi-Channel Network?
While it may seem like a lot of creators have partnered their YouTube channels with a MCN, answer is very clear. Most of successful and top YouTubers are in partnership with MCN, meaning they’re associated with a network.
This is a decision that you have to make as a creator, with the future of your channel and its goals being kept in mind. Start by figuring out what you want to accomplish with your YouTube channel in the short and long term. Look at the required contract term, as many YouTube networks may require you to partner for a specific length of time. Generally, it’s best to avoid long term contract lengths.
I’ve heard few bad things about YouTube MCNs. Are they a scam?
Multi-Channel Networks are not in business to scam their partners. They really do want their partnered channels to grow and earn more money. The more their partners earn, the more revenue for the MCN. The goal is a win-win situation for the creator and the network. So, how come people have had bad experiences?
Reason why creators may be un-satified with their MCN is because of their expectations. Joining a Network doesn’t mean that you will get easy or guaranteed results. Even though the Multi-Channel Network will provide you with services, opportunities, and assistance, you still have to put in consistent, hard work to build your YouTube channel’s brand. If you’re interested in a specific MCN, don’t expect them to be a guaranteed way to grow your channel, but as a way to make the process easier.
