What would you do if YouTube deleted your channel?
What’s your next move?
Create a Twitter thread?
Contact YouTube support? (lmao good luck with that)
It’s uncomfortable to think about, but people get their YouTube channels deleted everyday…
If you follow the rules and you’re not posting any questionable stuff then hopefully you wont ever have to experience losing your channel.
But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be prepared…
Let me explain.
When you post your content on a site you don’t own – you’re taking a risk.
The risk is usually worth it because YouTube and these other sites will generally be able to give you the opportunity to reach a larger audience than you would on your own.
But you can only contact the audience you build on these platforms when the platforms allow you to. Here’s an example:
As you should know by now, YouTube does not send your new videos to all of your subscribers…
Whether your subscribers are notified or not depends on the YouTube algorithm (unless they turn on notifications – when that works).
Most YouTubers moan about this issue but they’re not willing to put in the work to find a solution.
But I’m not most YouTubers and I have the solution:
Build an email list.
With your email list, you can notify your audience of your uploads, updates or whatever they’re interested in.
And you can appear right in someone’s email inbox without asking permission from Daddy YouTube first.
But before you’re ready to build an email list – you should build a website.
A website is essential for anyone who wants to earn a living online…
You can use your website:
- To collect email addresses
- As a portfolio or résumé
- To sell your products
- To sell your services
Your website is your own piece of internet real estate that you control.
You should be buying up the domains for your name, brand and YouTube channel (so someone else doesn’t buy the domain to sell back to you at a ridiculously high price).
And then put these domains to work.
For example, I make much more money from taking people away from YouTube to my websites than anything I make with adsense.
THIS is the key to making a full-time income with a small YouTube channel.
And it all starts with a website.
The hosting service I use (I get my domains from here too) is: http://Krystal.co.uk
I can confidently recommend Krystal to you because their customer service team is GREAT (they are all from the UK and they speak English!).
And their hosting prices and services are better than any other host I have experienced…
