    Hey youtubers,

    as you know a lot of people are doing reviews, unboxings and stuff like those on YouTube and they usually promote the company or shop which give them the product to review, so i would like to know where do they get those shops to work with ? Do you already need to have popular youtube channel or ?

    You need to obviously have a popular channel with good quality subscribers. Companies won't waste their times with small timers - what some people do is go to their local stores to get their latest high end products to do a review and then return it. Happens a lot with cameras, phones and tablets :)

    You use My Likes, or you can simply sign up for a network that is known to promote stuff like that. Sometimes you get lucky, other times you don't. As for popularity, yes that helps a lot but ultimately most networks will let smaller channels sign up for the offer and earn some cash from it. Hawken and Battle Star Galatica come to mind for some of the promotionals than run through Machinima and pay partners to link to it.

    Yes, My Likes is a very good network for doing video promotions like unboxing etc.

    This is what they say about samples:

    Get a viewership, and start with cheap products, then link to those review videos when approaching companies with more expensive products. It's almost like you're doing marketing....

    Are you looking to do reviews...or get free stuff as the thread title is subconsciously implying?

    If you have a lot of subscribers in a niche. You could ask online stores in your niche if you can review their products and you will say in your video to buy it from there store.
