In a fairly short amount of time, YouTube has monopolized the digital VOD industry, that even the big giants who were playing the TV game have thrown their hands in the air, as a sign of surrender. In today’s world, if you can’t beat them, partner with them. That’s why these old media giants have also come to take the advantages YouTube provides by creating their own channels on the platform to reach a much wider audience on an even lower budget.
YouTube has taken over brilliantly- combining entertainment and education on a single platform has been the bedrock of its success. It’s like a hub of videos, varieties that covers every area of audio-visual content. It has created the biggest opportunity that the previous TV giants did not. Giving opportunities to professionals and regular folks alike, to be able to create contents and enrich the lives of consumers. And it is some of these immensely valuable contents creators we will be looking at in this article.
