How To Fix Demonetization For Reused Content By JackersEdit
For GMV editors who's been declined from YouTube's Partnership Program.
"There is more you should know..."
If you received this feedback from YouTube in your Creator Studio monetization page, you’re given two options
Send a video appeal explaining what your channel does and how you edit your videos, then hope a YouTube reviewer accepts you into the YYP within 14 days.
Delete all the videos you took from other creators with minimal to no edits, and wait 30 days before reapplying.
Option 2 almost never works for GMV editors! So assuming you actually spent hours editing your GMVs and transforming them into something unique, deleting those videos and waiting the 30 days before reapplying often leads to a rejection by the reviewer.
Because the reviewer will look for specific things to mark you on, and it’s these points from the “don’t examples” that they will categorize your channel to.
Tip: Avoid mentioning in your video appeal and channel/video descriptions of any keywords written in the “don’t” section.
eg. promotion & permission
This leaves you with Option 1
MAKE A VIDEO
Your appeal video must address keywords written in the “do” section.
Do not use a voice bot to read off a script. This will give the impression to the reviewer that your channel is one of those being mass created by bots, trying to make quick money off the ad revenues.
Keep the video appeal short and simple.
WHAT TO DO
- Talk about what your channel does as a whole
- Why you chose doing GMVs
- The editing programs you use
- How you got the clips and songs
- What separates your work from others
- The steps you took to make your videos
- Show your workstation
- The process of uploading to YouTube
Speak with confidence! It's not what you say, but how you say it, that will make the reviewer believe in you.
It is essential that you show your face on camera as you talk to the reviewer.
This is the biggest driving force for anyone to trust you.
High quality audio matters. Your voice must be easy to listen to and you shouldn’t sound like you’re reading off any scripts, that will make you appear disingenuous.
Camera quality isn’t as important, but what is more important is lighting.
Make sure you are clearly seen and that there aren’t any harsh shadows on your face.
The best way to make yourself standout and pop, is by having blue and white lights shining in front of you and one backlight shining behind you in the background.
Your other social media accounts can either work for you or against you!
If your Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and any other social media accounts are inactive with no sign of recent activities, then it's best not having them linked in your channel page, because you don't have any social proof from your followers that you are a real person outside of YouTube.
However if the reviewer sees your followers engaging with your posts from your other social medias, then you'll be one step closer to getting approved for monetization.
If you have a website with your channel name as the domain name, then that's another point for you to get monetized. This gives you a professional appearance as supposed to an amateur with no credibility.
"Wish you the best!"
