There for you with answers
Contributors have direct relationships with YouTube and advanced insights on many topics—from how to use new features, to how to grow a channel. They share their knowledge in discussion forums, including the official YouTube Help Communities. In addition, Video Contributors create their own educational videos, and answer questions in the comments below help videos.
The people who make YouTube better
“I like helping other YouTubers and at the same time learning more about YouTube.”
“I like to understand how things work and it makes me happy to share that information with others.”
“The most rewarding aspect of the program is assisting others with difficult tasks, especially those they can't easily navigate on their own.”
“My favorite thing is helping users fix problems that they can't solve through the typical available steps.”
“Being a Contributor, we are in a unique position to interact 1-on-1 with users on a global platform, from all walks of life, each with their own perspectives and ideas.”
