We’re excited to announce today that Channel Pages has reached 10,000+ channels and over 1 Billion views per month across all those channels.

In just six short months since it launched, Channel Pages has grown to the #1 opt-in marketplace for YouTube channels to find other channels for growth collaborations, as well as for advertisers to find channels for integrated sponsorships and branded content.

We even ate our own dog food and used Channel Pages ourselves to produce videos about collaborations and advertising.

Here are a couple other stats that excite us as we think about how much Channel Pages impacts the lives of video creators and advertisers every day:

  • Since we launched, over 700 advertisers have created an offer or reached out to a channel via Channel Pages (this includes many huge Fortune 500 brands and their agencies)
  • Over 300 new channel-to-channel collaboration offers are posted each week
  • Several independent professionals/agencies with brand relationships have sprung up to create a business on top of Channel Pages (combining their brand relationships with the sourcing ability of Channel Pages)

We’re working non-stop to make the experience even more valuable for everyone, and as with any marketplace, the more people that are using it, the more valuable it is for everyone else..so please tell your friends! And if you are a brand looking to work with amazing video creators to get in front of their fan audiences, please post an offer : )

Thanks again for all your support,
Team FanBridge & Channel Pages

It’s inescapable how beneficial collaborative projects on YouTube are for a channel’s growth, but with a crowded jungle of channels out there, where does one even start to make that collaboration happen?

Since its September 2013 launch, FanBridge’s Channel Pages has aimed to help YouTubers cut through the noise and find relevant channels to start such collaborations and help grow their audiences. And as Channel Pages grows, a need to neatly organize all these opportunities around these vastly talented creators led to Offers Hub. Offers Hub is a marketplace on Channel Pages where collaborative projects can be posted and applied to by all those in the network.

For YouTubers with a collaborative project in mind, Channel Pages has built out a marketplace where these opportunities can be posted for other channels to find. Simply fill out the details of your offer – from a simple Recommended Channels swap to creating original content together – and the details of whom your ideal collaborator is. Once you submit your offer, you’ll be listed in a hub with a network of thousands of other video creators.

Don’t have an idea for a YouTube collaboration? Offers Hub is also a great destination to find a collaboration partner and project. Simply log in to your profile and visit the hub to see all that’s available for you. And if you find something of interest, you are only one click away from applying.

And if you are a business looking to sponsor a YouTube channel, you can also post to the Offers Hub. Simply go to the Search page and select the Post an Offer button on the right. Continuing as a guest will allow you to post to the marketplace without needing a Channel Pages profile. As an advertiser, you can tap into the Channel Pages network of experienced video creators with established audiences that coincide with the market you are trying to reach.

All that’s needed to post and apply to Offers Hub is a Channel Pages profile, created by a single YouTube authorization. A profile is automatically configured out of your statistics, meaning all the important application requirements are completely verifiable by YouTube’s API.

Have an idea for a project or want to see what’s out there? Visit the Offers Hub today.

Don’t yet have a profile, set one up in just 2 minutes or less!

If you’ve built up an audience on Tumblr, then you can easily convert them to a mailing list audience using the FanBridge signup forms. Best of all, these forms can appear in different way, and a combination of these options can easily be put into different parts of your blog. See below for how we used the splash page, embeddable form, and the interstitial all in one place.


1. Splash
 Page

Using a signup form as a splash page essentially inserts it over your page upon an initial visit by a new fan and will prompt each new visitor to join your list only once a year after subscribing. To embed this form, we simply pasted the splash page code above the closing </body> tag.

2. Embeddable Signup Form

Embedding a form in your site is easy and can greatly assist your database and list outreach efforts. In our example, we pasted the embed code in our aside just below the </header> tag.

3. Interstitial

Using the FanBridge interstitial, you can prompt visitors to sign up for your list as they navigate between pages on your site.  It just takes one click to display your form without having your fans navigate away from your Tumblr. In our example, we used it as an extra page that uses the interstitial URL as a redirect.

See all these options in further detail in the video above.
