Fred Sponsors Youtube videos - you should too.
Youtube would not be where it is today without the millions of fans visiting the site each day to watch their favourite creators make videos that entertain and inspire.
The platform has become a hotbed of creativity over the past decade. For many successful content makers it has become their jobs, their careers, their lives.
In the early days, Youtube supported their creators with a share of advertising revenue from each video. That system worked great - until thousands of creators had advertising removed from their videos without warning.
This is where sponsors step in - both individuals supporting the channel and advertisers. These methods of supporting creators are far more reliable at supporting your favourite creators. It’s why so many Youtubers are selling sponsorships and plugging their Patreon pages so much. Without these things, we would be broke.
If you are reading this page, chances are you enjoy my work. Thank you! It’s fans like you that keep me making videos. But I need your help if I am able to keep making videos. With enough support from the community and advertisers I can spend less time at my day job and more time creating the videos you love.
Patrons in the Middle Ages
This is Frederick III, Elector of Saxony. He lived in the 16th century, when wealthy nobleman supported many of the greatest artists we know today, like Leonardo da Vinci, Michaelangelo and William Shakespeare. They all enjoyed the support of patrons throughout their careers. Without it, many of the greatest pieces of art we enjoy today simply wouldn’t exist.
The same is true today. Without your support, most content we know and love on the internet would not exist.
This is where you come in. Next year I am producing a series of educational videos for Youtube, all about life’s biggest questions nobody has asked, and nobody has answered. It can’t be done without your help. In order to produce this content and keep paying rent, I am seeking donations and sponsors. With your support I can focus on making the best possible educational videos to inspire and entertain you, instead of pulling pints behind a bar.
Any donation big or small is greatly appreciated. There is a button below if you would like to donate, and a form as well if you are interested in sponsoring a video or doing a collaboration.
