YouTube Sponsorship is the way to grow your Channel and where brands will approach, or you have to find yourself to advertise their product on your Channel. Relying upon the sponsorship, you will get paid. Let’s look at the types now.
TYPES OF SPONSORSHIP
1.AFFILIATE SPONSORSHIP –
If you have a small YouTube channel, then this is the most straightforward option for getting your Channel started. Brands will give or provide you a link, and you have to specify or mention it on your YouTube video description.
Each time your viewers buy a product from that specific link, you will receive money.
There is one another way, where Brands will provide you a special /unique coupon code. Each time someone buys something using your code, they will get a discount on the product.
The Brand will supply you a certain sum of money based on the sales using your special coupon code.
Affiliate Sponsorship is the simplest way for small YouTube channels. They need to make a review Video and explain how the product can help in their daily life as well as why they need to buy the product.
Note: Affiliate sponsorship is not highly profitable. But, for the small YouTube channel, it is the best option.

The next best idea for your Small YouTube channel is Product Sponsorship. This way, Brands will send you a free product, and you need to do reviews and unboxing videos.
The best thing is that you can put your Affiliate sponsorship link on your YouTube video description to earn money.
In this way, some companies will give you money, and you can keep the product too. Some will provide you with money, but you have to return the product. The last one will let you keep the product, but you would not receive any money.
For example, if you have a photography channel, you can contact them and ask for lenses for upgrade and offer them for a review video on your YouTube channel. The more subscriber you have, the more chances you have to avail Product Sponsorship.
However, there are still chances for Small YouTube channel too. But remember, don’t expect expensive items in the starting period.
Start-up or small YouTube channels can go to Brand’s website, and look at their contact options or look for their Email. After that, they need to write an email mentioning their channel name, subscriber count, etc. If the brands are satisfied, they will contact you back.
Down the road, when your Channel you start growing, the more prominent companies will contact you directly. Sometimes, they will tell you to make giveaways
For ex- A smartphone company will contact you for a giveaway. They will send you six smartphones. You have to send 5 pieces to your subscribers, and you can keep the last one. In this case, some brands might even pay you extra.
Tips- Always mention channel description and mainly your Email on YouTube About section. The companies will reach you from there.

This is the best YouTube sponsorship, but you have to cross many milestones to achieve this. Paid sponsorships help you to earn money along with the channel growth too.
