YouTube looks to merch and memberships to make creators more money

Because ads aren't the only way YouTubers can earn cash.



Edgar Alvarez

YouTube

YouTube is having a busy day at VidCon 2018. Aside from launching Premieres, a feature that lets creators hype prerecorded videos with a public landing page, the company is also announcing new ways for them to make more money. For starters, channels with more than 100,000 subscribers will now have access to Memberships, which will allow viewers to pay a monthly fee of $4.99 to get exclusive access to badges, emoji, livestreams, members-only videos and shoutouts, among other perks. This is exactly what YouTube was already doing with Sponsorships, though that was available only to a select group of YouTubers. If you're a creator but don't meet the 100,000-subscriber threshold, YouTube says it hopes to bring Channel Memberships to more people in the coming months.

In addition to that, YouTube has teamed up with Teespring on a merchandise shopping tool that will let creators sell custom gear via a built-in hub on their channel. As pictured above, YouTubers can choose from over 20 merch items to offer to their audience, including tees, hoodies and accessories including pillows. Like with Premieres and Channel Memberships, YouTube's merchandise shop won't be available to everyone: It's just for US-based channels with more than 10,000 subscribers, though the company did say that it plans to bring it to more creators "soon," along with other merchandising partners.

Jacob Cockle - BBC News
Mark McGregor writes: “Huge congratulations to Duncan Leatherdale and Dave Green, who have been nominated for a prestigious British Journalism Award for their Shorthand production about Jacob Cockle, the adventurer and photographer who died when he was sucked into a whirlpool trying to get the perfect shot. The story of his short but remarkable life was known to few outside of his friends and family, before this longform feature brought it to a mass audience. Dealing with universal topics - the power of grief, the thrill of living and the precariousness of life - the feature took millions of readers on an emotional journey. They witnessed Jacob’s paradoxical struggle: to give his life meaning, he threw himself into activities that were increasingly more likely to end it. Jacob’s journey took him – and our readers - across the globe, spawning many extraordinary photographs that were used to illustrate this visually compelling piece of journalism.

NHS denied treatment for migrants who can't afford upfront charges | Society | The Guardian
Data sourced by the Guardian under the Freedom of Information Act found that across 84 of England’s 148 acute hospital trusts, 2,279 patients were charged upfront between October 2017 and June 2018. Of these, 341 patients across 61 trusts did not proceed with their intended treatments or appointments after being told to pay. The true figure across all trusts is certain to be higher, given that 64 trusts did not supply figures.

How BBC Interactive Content Works Across AMP, Apps, And The Web — Smashing Magazine
While the canonical and AMP versions look the same, they are actually two different endpoints with different behavior:

The canonical version scrolls you to your chosen country when you submit the form.
The AMP version doesn’t scroll you, as you cannot scroll the parent page from within an AMP iframe.
The AMP version shows a cropped iframe with a ‘Show More’ button, depending on viewport size and scroll position. This is a feature of AMP.
