Why Collaboration Works

The reason collaboration works is very simple. When you share your audience with channels similar to yours you both grow. It’s that easy. At first, it might not be by a lot. But even 1 more engaged subscriber can make a difference. As you continue to collaborate, your engaged subscriber base continues to grow. As you start to collaborate with larger audiences, you’ll go from gaining 1 or two subs per collab to 5, 10, 20, 100, etc.

How to Collaborate With Other YouTubers

To collaborate with other YouTubers you’ll first want to register with our collab service “SideKick Collab.” Doing this is super simple, and free! Just log in with your Youtube account and bam! You’re set up! Next, you’re going to want to click your name in the top right corner, then click collab to start the process! Adjust our awesome collab search engine to match the criteria you want, and start contacting people. Just click the “collab” button under the name of the user you want to collab with.

Before you contact someone you should have an idea of what you’d like out of the collaboration. Make sure to watch a few of the person’s videos, and figure out what sort of collab might work best for your channels. Ask yourself questions like: will it be long distance? What style of videos do they make? How does that compare to mine? What would my audience enjoy? Keep in mind there are no definite answers to these questions, and they’re just a starting point to help you figure out how you want to make your collaboration.
