    Youtube Partner (Current Employee)
    La Porte, TX

    ProsIts easy money if you love uploading videos, don't have to worry about hours, bosses, all that jazz you're your own boss and you set your own hours.

    ConsNot many cons the pay is good if you have a decent amount of views, its pretty much easy money if you like uploading videos.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Video Production

    Video Production (Current Employee)
    Freehold, NJ

    ProsMaking videos and then being offered monetization on your account was great, there was no effort involved as it wasn't a goal to be a personal job. It was offered to me based upon the success of my existing videos.

    ConsVery small amounts of communication between the sponsors and YouTube to you, and very heavily based on audience size and how much they watch. This is a very unstable form of income.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
