The first step in using YouTube's Private messaging system is to find a YouTuber's email address. Then, you can message them with a message of up to 1500 characters. If the user doesn't have an email address, you can also use the public chat option. This method will give you the best chance of reaching out to the individual.
Private messages on YouTube
The recent deprecation of YouTube's Private messages feature may not come as a shock, but the reason behind it seems a little odd. In the past, YouTube has had trouble with children using the feature to communicate with their parents without their consent. The company has also faced complaints over inappropriate content, child predators, and regulatory issues. As a result, it has banned commenting on videos featuring minors.
Before we dive into the advantages of sending private messages to YouTube subscribers, it's important to know how to access this feature. First, you need to access YouTube from a computer. Next, use the search bar to type the name of the channel you wish to send a message to. When you're in the list of results, look for the "private messages" option.
Messages on YouTube can be viewed by the recipients on the Messages tab, which is available to YouTube users on Creator Studio. The messages can be deleted, but it's important to keep in mind that deleting them will remove their copy from the recipient's profile. Unlike in the commenting system of Google+, YouTube users cannot send more than one private message to the same person. However, if you want to send multiple private messages to one person, you can also use the commenting system on Google+.
After September 18, the YouTube private messages feature will no longer be available. After that date, subscribers will only be able to send comments or private messages to each other through their email address. The company is currently working on making the process more convenient for subscribers. However, until that time, it's still possible to send private messages to your favorite YouTubers for personal and business reasons.
Finding a user's email address
If you want to know who the owner of a particular YouTube channel is, you can find their email address using the search bar at the top of the homepage. If you want to make business enquiries, you can also find their email address in the About section of their profile. The process is easy and can be done without having to pay a single cent.
If you are able to find the user's email address, you can get in touch with them via their social media profiles or email. If you are unable to find their profile, you can find their email address in the description of their videos. For mobile users, you can use their email address to contact them.
A YouTube channel owner may have provided their email address in the 'About' or 'Details' section of their profile. This means that they will be able to receive your subscriptions from the email address listed in the account. In some cases, the user may also have a LinkedIn account, which will provide their email address to subscribers.
BeenVerified is another good option for finding a user's email address on YouTube. It combines data from several sources, including social media accounts, to produce comprehensive reports. The search engine also lets you see which videos the user has watched, liked and uploaded. It only takes a few minutes to produce an exhaustive report.
Once you've found the user's account, you can now search for the email address that they used to sign into their YouTube account. Alternatively, you can use their username and password in a web browser to find their email address.
Using the public chat option
One way to communicate with the owner of a YouTube channel is to use the public chat option. Unlike private messages, public messages can be read by everyone. To do this, go to the channel's home page and click on the Community tab. In the Community tab, you can also leave a comment on a published post or search for a particular video.
Using the public chat option on YouTube does not give you access to a chat participant's Friends list or channels. However, this does not mean that you can't communicate with another YouTuber. The platform also has a commenting system that lets you privately message multiple contacts.
Another way to communicate with a YouTube channel owner is to find his or her email address. Most YouTubers are active on at least one social network, and most of these platforms offer private messaging options. You can find a YouTuber's social profile by looking at the video description or about section.
If you're using the web version of YouTube, you can also use this method to pm a friend. The recipient must have the settings for notifications turned on. Once you've added the person, you can share the video with them privately. The only thing to keep in mind is that some parents might want to prevent you from using messaging apps on their children's computers.
YouTube hasn't completely removed the private chat option, but it has made it difficult to communicate with the creators. Even if this option isn't working as intended, you can still send a message to them via the 'About' section of your channel.
Reaching out to a YouTuber by email
Reaching out to a YouTuber by e-mail can be a challenge. Most do not have a dedicated email address on their channel. Instead, they have social media accounts linked to their channel. You can send them tweets or direct messages using these accounts. Alternatively, you can request to become a part of their network on LinkedIn.
While some YouTubers have a private messaging feature on their channel, it is not recommended to do so. It is far safer to use the email address they provide in their social profiles. The only caveat here is that you may have to wait until you see a response from the YouTuber before you send a private message. Alternatively, you may be able to contact a YouTuber through their personal website or their email address.
Before sending a message, make sure you know your target audience and identify the right influencers with similar audiences. If you have trouble with this step, you can always use a free customer avatar creator to narrow down your list. Moreover, keep in mind that Google categorizes Youtube viewers and shares the data with YouTube channels for free. Ask your influencer for their audience statistics. This will help you target the right YouTuber for your marketing campaign.
After you've figured out which channel you'd like to contact, you can move on to the next step. Most YouTubers provide their contact details on their channel. If you're unsure if they allow business emails, you can visit the channel's homepage and click the "View Email Address" link.
Using a third-party
If you want to reach the YouTube team without having to go through the process of sending an email, using a third-party to PM YouTube may be your best bet. While this method isn't perfect, it has some advantages. For one thing, it automatically adds a timestamp to the URL of the video. It also saves time because you don't have to worry about sending emails multiple times.
