The most popular artists have VEVO accounts on YouTube, and you should, too. Ever wondered how to Get a VEVO Channel for Your Music?

VEVO is one of the most popular companies in the world of music, operated by Sony Music Entertainment, Universal Music Group, and Abu Dhabi Media. By creating a VEVO music account on YouTube and branding the VEVO logo on your videos, you are exposed to millions of viewers as a serious and respectable artist.

 


VEVO vs Youtube

So you’re planning to release an upcoming music video and are unsure if you should utilize a personal YouTube channel or create a Vevo channel to distribute your video more “officially”?

One of the main advantages of having your music video on Vevo is that it has a higher payout than YouTube channels that monetize their videos. Also; YouTube is unlimited in terms of the type of video content on the platform. Vevo, on the other hand, is only intended for music content.

Your video will be placed on a VEVO branded artist YouTube channel. With your music video being a part of VEVO’s catalog, it has the potential to be placed on its YouTube featured playlists to get more exposure i.e. Vevo playlists.

Having a VEVO branded YouTube channel will also add some verification that you or your artist is on the same level as mainstream artists. Video content lives on the Vevo YouTube channel, Apple TV, Samsung TV, and every Vevo outlet.

We can also help you request for Youtube Official Artist Verification whereby your official youtube channel, Autogenerated Youtube Music channel, and Vevo Channel will be merged.
