    Hey everyone!

    Youtube pretty much says that you need 100k followers in order to get verified.

    I'm still on 30k subs and that little (v/) icon would really help on my advertising through comment positioning (organic traffic babyy).

    I was just wondering if there are any alternate ways of getting your Youtube channel verified (and therefore earning that sweet checkmark badge).


    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    1) I read somewhere that you could just ask your MCN and they would be able to hook you up eventually, but Curse Union for Gamers (my network) made a tutorial on verifying channels and it's basically focused on asking Youtube for it :(

    Do you guys know of any other Network that would be more helpful in this scenario?

    2) A guy with 5k subs told me he got it by simply linking his channel to his website. Any confirmation on that?

    3) Someone here on BHW should create a MCN only focused on verifying channels and selling this service. Just an idea lol

    Any help is appreciated ;)

    So a friend of mine got a gaming-related channel which was verified by the MCN at only about 50k, so it's definitely possible (~8 months ago). However the MCN was invite only (they approached you if they wanted you in their network).
    Tbh, it's kinda easy to get into Curse, guess you need a MCN that focusses on quality channels and is therefore able to offer better features/support if you want that little icon.
