How to buy a YouTube Channel
Well if you’re not interested in growing a YouTube Channel from scratch and you have money to spend, buying a YouTube Channel might not be such a bad idea for you.
However, I’ll give you tips on how to buy a YouTube Channel to avoid scams and hijacking.
Step #1: Once you see a YouTube Channel in your Niche that you wish to buy, the first thing you should do is to determine the worth of the Channel, this helps you estimate how much you’ll bid.
If you don’t know how to see a YouTube Channels Earnings, here’s an article on how to do so in 2022.
Let’s say the channel makes $500 – $1000 per month, then your should be aiming to buy the Channel for $10,000.
I don’t think any creator who earns $500 -$1000 per month would not agree to sell his YouTube Channel for $10,000. If you have $10,000 then proceed to step 2.
Step #2: Contact the Creator and present your offer, then you’ll know whether he or she wishes to sell the account, if yes, then you guys can proceed.
Step #3: As a buyer, never make payments without escrow services, the best online escrow service I know is escrow.com. This will guarantee that you’ll be the owner of the Channel before the creator receives payment.
Tip: If the creator doesn’t know how to transfer ownership of his YouTube account, it means that he never sold an account before and he needs to read this resource.
Tip 2: Never buy from Online Marketplaces as they are often full of accounts that were hijacked and are loosing subscribers.
