This blog post is actually just something I am creating for me.
A resource to go back to – and add to as I find new brands that many creators are working with.
Brands that regularly works with YouTube creators
Some brands are almost impossible to get a sponsorship or relationship with, unless you are a giga creator with millions of subscribers. I am trying to make my list more geared towards smaller creators, with brands i see working with small creators already.

Brands I think you should stay away from.
I am not going to make a list of actual brands here – I’d be opening my self up to a lot of hate or anger from brands. Instead I am going to make categories to stay away from:
- Crypto & NFT
- Diets & Pills
And then I am unsure about taking sponsorships from VPN’s mostly because I don’t really know if they are all legit? – but time will tell, and if i ever get approached for a VPN sponsorship i have to know transparency about how they operate.
Doing a sponsorship on YouTube without being a sellout
In my opinion there is a fine line between doing a sponsored message integration and being a sell-out
Here are some steps you can take in order to – not seem as a sellout.
- Make the sponsorship integration 100% clear, that it is sponsored.
- Consider the sponsorship a “partnership” between you and the brand.
- Don’t make partnerships with brands you wouldn’t use anyway
- Be transparent with your audience.
