    Hello :)

    I have a pretty successful youtube channel with around 300,000 monthly views and currently 30,000 videos.
    I am not too pleased with the money it's making (I'm partnered with youtube) but I'm also not too unhappy...it's ok...

    Now, a guy from TGN is trying to recruit me to their network, saying that they have no lockdown and I can quit whenever I want.
    Iv'e been reading a lot about TGN and other networks and I have to admit that the more I read - the more confused I get.
    There are so many people saying so many contradicting stuff about those networks!

    So I thought to myself - why don't I just try TGN for a month and see if the money is better?
    I guess it's on a per case basis anyway...
    What interests me is the money only - I have absolutely no need in any privilege those networks can offer...


    My question to you is that:

    Is there any reason for me to refrain from doing that?
    Is it really as simple as the TGN guy says? I just partner with them and whenever I want I can just quit and go back to being a youtube partner?
    I have 30,000 videos so if it have to manually do ANYTHING for each on of my video in order to go back to youtube - that's gonna take months of work...

    Is there anything I should take into consideration?
    Anyone here ever partnered up with a 3rd party network and then got back to being a youtube partner?

    Please tell me if I'm just paranoid or I can easily and smoothly give TGN a try and quit if they don't improve my income...


    Thanks guys! You rock! :)

    I'm not sure about TGN but at o e point I was YouTube partner and at one point I was with a network. the YouTube partnership made me more money per view but the network promoted my channel and helped it grow. the most eyes from the network was less overall. I sold the account so I cannot tell you how easy it would be to switch back..

    The downtime from partnering and unpartnering with TGN is at least 2 months, so take that into consideration. The downtime comes from their support team for the most part, they take weeks to respond and weeks to take action. (Even people they hire find it hard to get quick response times)

    If all that interests you is money and you don't need things like protection from click-bombing etc, don't bother with networks. Just stay with adsense.

    Beware of networks such as Awesomenesstv who lock you up for a whole year before releasing you

    I would avoid TGN for now as they don't have the best payment cuts. I own an MCN (network) and to be honest you should be able to double your earnings if you choose the right one. Put simply, networks get premium ads which pay out much more, for example in december we were hitting a $14 cpm and this was even after google's 45% cut.

    Shoot me a PM with your channel and I can suggest the best MCN for you, not mine though unless you are a music/health focused channel (I assume not). There are some good ones out there though and they are often the smaller ones with high quality channels.
