In episode 181 of the weekly Hump Day Hangouts by Semantic Mastery, one viewer asked if there is a way around the new eligibility requirements for the YouTube Partner Program.
The exact question was:
Is there a way around the new YouTube eligibility requirements for the YouTube Partner Program? Which requires 4,000 watch hours in the previous 12 months AND 1,000 subscribers. I have some clients with low watch hours this has hurt. One thing is we cannot link back to the Website from the video using “”cards””.
