Small YouTuber Zone Facebook Group
This group is a zone where small YouTube creators from all over the world can connect and interact with other like-minded people. Inside you can ask for or give advice, talk about anything YouTube related and most importantly make new friends! It’s also a great way to find other YouTubers to collab with.
YTtalk is a free forum that is home to an awesome community of YouTube creators, big and small, who share helpful tips and tricks, support, collaborations and other opportunities and much more! You can ask questions about growing a channel, buy/sell services such as YouTube intros and channel art and ask for reviews and criticism on your latest video. There is always plenty of stuff going on over there and it’s definitely worth it to check it out!
Helpful Tools & Software
TubeBuddy is a free browser extension which equips you with loads of awesome tools directly into your YouTube account. Once you install TubeBuddy, just open up YouTube and all of the features will be there and ready to use. It has a range of helpful tools including the tag explorer, search rank tracking, best time to publish, video topic planner and SO MUCH MORE!
There is a free version but also multiple paid options with more features. I personally use the paid ‘STAR’ version which honestly, I could not live without!
FullscreenFullscreen is a multi-channel network that I have been apart of since early in my YouTube journey. They take a split of your YouTube adsense revenue and in return provide you with an abundance of features to help you grow your channel and make even more money back. Some of the features I love include a free subscription to Epidemic Sound (a huge royalty free music library), Gleam fan contests, creator forums and now they even offer a free TubeBuddy ‘STAR’ account! The amount of value they provide is insane! However, joining an MCN is not for everyone. If you’re unsure get in touch and I’ll do my best to answer any questions or concerns you may have.
Sidekick Collab is a free website that allows small Youtubers to easily find and collaborate with other similar creators.

They also have loads of helpful articles about growing a YouTube channel on their website for you to learn from for free!
