I get this question ALL.THE.TIME.
YouTube partner ‘verification’ is different from the blue verified checkmark on Twitter or Facebook.
This is a way YouTube verifies that you are a real human and not a spambot. This quick verification process also allows you to use some of YouTube’s more advanced features like uploading your own custom YouTube Thumbnail for your videos (which can help more folks click on your videos). 😉
Here’s how you get partner ‘Verified’ on YouTube in 2 minutes:
STEP 1: Go into your Creator Studio on your YouTube Account...
STEP 2: Click into Channel> Status and Features
Then hit that blue 'Verify' button to start the process.
STEP 3: Verify you are a human (via text or phone call):
STEP 4: Type in the Code Google sends you via text or voicemail
STEP 5: Woo hoo! You did it!
STEP 6: Now your Channel Settings should look like this!
Congrats your account is now verified and you can take advantage of some new awesome features from YouTube.
Now that you're verified want to know how to get your 1st 100 subscribers? I show you how here (for free).
See you on social,
