    I've been seeing some channels with their verification under 100k subs, I'm wondering what method they used for this one. And I'll also be interested in some sort of service that provides instant verification, I've heard of a service for instagram, there's an insider that will get you instantly verified, regardless of the followers. I hope there's something like this for YouTube as well.

    Maybe you guys know of some methods? Or maybe you have to email them and provide some proof? I'd be willing to fake some proof to get verified. :)

    Is it music channels you are seeing verified?

    Music artists can get their channels verified with way less than 100k subs through their new artist program they expanded a lot more in the second half of 2018. You just need to have music distributed to YouTube Music in their required format, and then you submit a request to their artist email support. Takes like 3-6 months for them to complete the verification but that's how it's happening for artists right now.

    For general verification AFAIK they are still pretty strict about keeping it above 100k subs before you can apply. Though I know they do have certain channels in the 10k to 100k sub range that test out new features for YouTube's engineering team so maybe they are getting it as like an extra perk for beta testing new features.

    If you have an account with 100k subs already, you can create 5-10 accounts more (safe), and get them verified. with any sub amount.
    Some marketers are selling this as a service. It is safe, if the seller not scams you.

    If you are a public figure, tv figure, often in news, you have other social profiles, just show it, along with your ID.
    If you want to fake it, then proceed with this public figure stuff.

    hello. I am really working hard for a long time now to get verified on Instagram. as far as I know it comes down to a lot of expensive press coverage. I have maxed out everything I feel except that. I have done a little but anyways I was wondering if there was any trick to it that I could learn here. the above info sounds interesting but what about ig? Thank you

    note: I am new musician but have shown up in the knowledge graph and claimed it on google.

    Different online resources point to strong brand credibility for one to be verified with under 100k subscribers. The general rule on their support site tells us that 100k subs should be one of the requirements but if one has credible content, it may be bypassed.
