    Hi,

    I am thinking of doing a youtube give away but finding it hard to find any real info about do's and dont. What I am after is increasing my subscriber base

    I am looking to do is a give away and ask people to subscribe for a chance to win when I reach a set number of subscribers (which I will also tell people so they know what my target will be)

    What I have found out so far is :
    1.Be Clear about what your giving away
    2.let people know the rules
    3.let people know if the giveaway is open internationally or not
    4.that its nothing to do with youtube in anyway

    Are there any guide lines I should be following, do or donts. Can I ask people to subscribe to my channel for a chance to win a prize ?

    Many thanks in advance

    Are you monetizing your views (adsense)? They don't allow partners or monetized videos to do this, just so you know.

    Hi, Yes my channel is monetized, however if I did the give away video I would not monetize that.

    How are some youtube channels doing giveaways

    Thanks
