Loading your YouTube Videos

After connecting your YouTube Account to HashtagLicensing, we automatically sync and retrieve all of your videos and make them available under the videos page.

Here you see a list of all your videos. We indicate the status of your video by making them Red or Green. Red means, that you haven't timestamped this video successfully yet.
Green means it's timestamped successfully!

Timestamp your YouTube Videos

The foundation of a great YouTube Channel is a clean, up-to-date list of videos combined with any documented timestamps and the corresponding rights for any music or clips used.

You can create as many timestamps as you'd like, but one requirement is that you timestamp the whole video!
Meaning that even if a video is created by you and solely you, you still need to document this.

Using timestamps to document the video, we can show YouTube how exactly your video is build-up.

Adding a License

HashtagLicensing's smart licenses, allow you to add any license or proof you've received in the past.
By clicking the "Plus Button" to the right of the license selector you can upload a custom license.

This can be useful if you already have an agreement with your content submitter and don't want them to sign an agreement again.

Content Agreement Form

With HashtagLicensing, you don't have to set-up any contracts!
We've made a form that allows your client to fill-in all their personal information.
With this information, we create a contract, which will be e-signed by both parties.

We're soon expanding this feature, by allowing your client to upload their clips.

By putting this link in your YouTube Bio, Video description or your Website you can allow anyone to send in content at any moment. Further solidifying the bond with your clients.

See an example of this content submission form here:

Signing a submitted contract

After a client has filled in a content submission form, you can sign the contract with your account signature. By doing so, you successfully create an agreement between both parties, which is legally binding. This makes it easy for us to use these documents to show YouTube you're eligible for monetization.

Getting Monetized

After you've successfully documented all of your content, you'll have to contact HashtagNetwork.
We'll then check your content submission and contracts after it's been viewed by us, we'll send it over to YouTube. YouTube will then forward your documentation to the YouTube Partner Program Verification team. And they will decide if you get monetized or not.
