Help us select October’s “On The Rise” partner

By Devon Storbeck and Christine Wang

YouTube Partner Support

On The Rise is a monthly program where we introduce four YouTube partners whose channels drive significant watch time but haven’t yet reached the 100,000 subscriber mark. Thanks to your help, we’ve identified four channels this month who are getting close to crossing that threshold. Our October nominees create engaging videos about their hobbies, which include origami, auto repairs, fishing, and extreme sports.

You can help these partners get even closer to reaching that 100,000 subscriber milestone. Check out their videos below, vote for your favorite here, and one of these candidates will have the opportunity to be featured across YouTube later this month. In addition to your votes, each channel will be evaluated on criteria such as viewer engagement and channel optimization techniques to decide which partner we’ll feature.

In past months, featured On The Rise partners like StanWinstonSchool and CookingAndCrafting have gained subscribers and seen their watch time grow due in large part to your support. This month’s poll will be open until October 10, 5 p.m. PT, so don’t forget to vote for your favorite channel. Check back to see which channel will be featured on October 30.

Thundermist Lures

If fishing is one of your hobbies, you’ll want to check out the Thundermist Lure Company's YouTube channel. Claudio, Ivo and Phil are professionals who have won fishing tournaments and are here to share their best fishing tips and tricks.

Riders Match

Kiteboarding, horse surfing, parkour, BMX--if you enjoy extreme sports, you’ll find a lot to love on this channel. These videos offer best-of sports coverage that’s bound to give you a thrill.

If you’re interested in participating or have suggestions for partners you think should be featured, you we encourage you to visit our On The Rise homepage. You can check out all of our past featured partners on the Featured Partners tab, or nominate a YouTube partner to be considered for the program on the Nominate tab. Feel free to submit nominations for your own channel, or for channels you follow that you think deserve more attention or could be the next YouTube sensation. We’ll continue to feature promising partners who drive YouTube watch time, have fewer than 100,000 subscribers, and produce engaging content on a regular basis.
