How to Get Sponsored as a Vlogger (Part I)
October 23, 2020
One thing that most vloggers desire to know when they first begin vlogging is how they can make money from their new hobby. While it is completely possible to monetize as a vlogger, you do have to get sponsored before you will see a steady income.
How Many Subscribers Do You Need to Get a Sponsor?
Many folks focus on the number of subscribers their vlog has. While this can be a vital measurement of how well-liked your vlog is, this is not the only metric that businesses will use when they are seeking to sponsor a vlogger. It’s way better to pay attention to the amount of views that your videos get on a frequent basis.
While you can have plenty of subscribers without them really viewing all your videos, it’s also conceivable to have a lot of views from folks who aren’t subscribers. Since companies want their items to be in front of as many folks as possible, they tend to be way more interested in the number of views you have.
It is not unheard of for vloggers to only have 99 subscribers, but since they have millions of views, they are able to obtain a sponsorship from a company. While it is very critical to pay attention to the number of subscribers that you have, it’s just as crucial, and possibly even more so, to take into consideration the number of views that your videos are receiving.
Another factor that will come into play when you’re trying to get a sponsor is what niche you are in. General vloggers who speak about their lives will want to have more views than a vlogger who is talking about a more specific subject.
For instance, vloggers who talk about Japanese culture might not have a huge number of views or be able to get as many folks as a general lifestyle vlogger. But, since they have a particular set group of folks who are watching their videos, they might not need as many subscribers or views to get a sponsor.
