YouTube debuts Creator Hub to organize creator resources

YouTube Creator Hub

Teased at VidCon last month, YouTube has launched their YouTube Creator Hub, a one-stop-shop for support information and production resources targeted towards all creators.

The Creator Hub outlines benefits that creators receive at different subscriber levels: graphite, opal, bronze, and silver.

Not a ton is changing, but here’s what you need to know.

Graphite: 0 to 1,000 subscribers
– Email support for all creators. YouTube touts 1 business day response times to emails from all monetization-enabled creators.

Opal: 1,000 to 10,000 subscribers
– Eligible to attend Creator Day sessions. Creator Days are events hosted in local Google offices throughout the world, allowing local creators to network and workshop.
– Eligible to attend YouTube Space events and workshops.
– Eligible to attend local meetups hosted by ‘YouTube Ambassadors,’ a new offering we don’t have much information on yet.

Bronze: 10,000 to 100,000 subscribers
– Eligible to join the channel consultation program. Get connected with a YouTube partner manager for personalized advice and support, contingent on availability.
– Eligible to enter for a spot in the YouTube NextUp program, a week-long boot camp with top creators and free production gear.
– Production access at YouTube Spaces. Shoot videos, use premium soundstages, host your own events, and more.
