We have loads of partners across Europe that are taking advantage of the YouTube Partner Program, and becoming highly successful on YouTube. We've asked some of these partners to share their experience on YouTube and within the program, and shed light on how to best utilize the platform. This month featured partner is Woozybmx, please read on for their story and best practices!
Please tell us a bit about yourself. What is your name, your channel name? Where are you from, your fanbase?
Hello my name is Dominik Wrobel. I am an action sports filmmaker and I own and operate the online Bmx video magazine woozybmx.com & the associated channel: youtube.com/woozybmx. The channel features Bmx videos from all over the world.
Please tell us how it all started. How and when did you start creating videos? When did you decide to be active on YouTube and become a partner? What was your first video on YouTube?
When I was in school, me and my friends started filming each other riding bikes. I always edited that footage into little videos. That was about 10 years ago. Back then, we published our videos on VHS tapes. Things kind of progressed naturally and over the years I had the opportunity to film & ride with some of the best Bmx riders in the world, using great camera equipment and travelling a lot. I am really thankful to the people that helped me out and worked with me in the last couple of years. YouTube has been a huge part of this the last couple of years, too. Putting my work online and working with YouTube was a no-brainer.
