YouTube launches new Creators Site
James R | On 15, Oct 2017
YouTube has launched a new, revamped Creators Site to provide support to those looking to create content for the web.
The original Creator Hub launched just over a year ago and was a first step in bringing together the site’s creator-facing programs, news and information. Now YouTube has given its resource a new lick of paint. The upgrade was a result of working with creators, as well as looking at how they were using the original hub to optimise the site to better support their user journeys.
The result offers more up-to-date information in a refreshed design, which highlights the latest news on the YouTube Twitter feed, new updates on the Creators blog, and detailed information about YouTube’s Partner Management program, so that creators understand how to get the support they need. An interactive widget also indexes content from the YouTube Help Center and makes it available across the Creators Site.
To celebrate the launch of the new Creators Site, YouTube is releasing Master Class – a new series of videos from the Creator Academy. The series is designed to help creators grow their audience by learning about an important range of topics, from analysing and growing your channel to building a business.
YouTube announces new creator tools and benefits
27th June 2016
YouTube has launched a new set of creator tools and benefits for those who publish videos on these ite.
The site has made a whole wave of announcements at VidCon this year, including a new line-up of original titles for YouTube Red. YouTube is backing it up, though, with the tools to help vloggers and filmmakers to take advantage of them.
“Think of it this way: more than a thousand creators cross the 1,000 subscribers mark every single day. Crazy, right?” says
Sebastien Missoffe, VP, YouTube Operations. “And while each of you is driving your own success, we do our best at YouTube to support and celebrate your talent and self-expression with new tools, support options, workshops, production access at the Spaces, in-person events, Play Button awards, and the list goes on.”
YouTube has also announced an update on the improvements to Content ID that were promised back in April. YouTube said it was developing a new solution that will allow videos to earn revenue while a Content ID claim is being disputed. These are now undergoing live tests before rolling out to all partners in the coming months.
“We’ve also observed – as have many of you – that a “strike” isn’t always the best indication of an abusive channel. For example, a new creator might inadvertently get a strike because they are still learning the rules of engagement for YouTube. In fact, most channels that get a strike will never get another one,” adds Missoffe. “The “one size fits all” approach – where all users are handled in the same way as bad actors – is not the most effective way to handle these issues. That’s why soon we’ll be adjusting how penalties are applied when a creator receives a strike on their account.”
YouTube has also introduced one-on-one support, so that every creator who has joined the Partner Program will get answers via email from a real person.
A redesigned Creator Hub is also now available in 23 languages and will lets users learn the tricks of the trade and the tools to grow their channel.
As part of that hub, YouTube has also launched YouTube for Creators, a multi-level benefits program that gets users the benefits to grow their channel. In addition to celebrating subscriber milestones, YouTube will now offer new levels of benefits at 0, 1,000 and 10,000 subscribers.
