I want to know how I can attract sponsors for my YT channel. It's a channel in a specific home related niche.

Some Data:
  • Audience is mostly from America, Canada and UK in the age group 25-34.
  • It's in a specific home related niche. Almost all the other channels in this niche have sponsors for almost every video.
  • My intention is to have 20-30 seconds long brand mentions within the video.
My questions:
  • Is there a specific number of subscribers or view count (avg. view/video) you should reach before sponsors take you seriously? Or is it random?
  • Is it better to contact probable sponsors directly or should I try to get myself into an influencer management agency?
  • How much I can get/charge per 1000 YT views for a video. Would be happy to see some data on this.
  • As I build my channel and subscriber base, how can I make my brand more valuable for future sponsors?
  • As a side note, I am looking for ways to connect better with my audience. Is there any guide or book on how to be real (not kidding) and make your viewers trust you? I think my content is of good quality (provides value and entertainment), but I want them to connect with me on a personal level as well.
Looking for any useful input from people familiar with YT.

It's random. There are plenty of micro influencers with under 1,000 subscribers that work with brands, but they're often either paid a small sum or are paid through the form of free products. Just like with ads on a website, sometimes it's better to hold off until you're getting "x" number of views each day so you can get paid more.

I remember back in 2013 when the first influencer marketing platform was developed for YouTube- they required 5,000 subscribers to become a member.

Influencer management agencies only take on large channels. After all, they get paid a % of each brand deal, so it's not worth their time conversing with brands for $20.
How much I can get/charge per 1000 YT views for a video. Would be happy to see some data on this.
This is difficult to answer because of all the factors involved. A brand partnership where you promote a $1,000 table would be easier to charge more money for, as only a sale or two would need to be made for the brand to be profitable.

Maybe try running an niche-specific AdWords campaign, figuring out the average cost per view (CPV) and then charging a bit less than the average CPV?
As I build my channel and subscriber base, how can I make my brand more valuable for future sponsors?
Make sure you create content that attracts the ideal target audience of brands you'd like to work with. Also, make sure your videos are brand-friendly (no swear-filled rants, lol).
As a side note, I am looking for ways to connect better with my audience. Is there any guide or book on how to be real (not kidding) and make your viewers trust you?

Do you ever give your opinions on things in your videos? Doing so can help humanize your videos a bit more. Instead of just saying "here's this table, it's brown" you would chime in with an opinion like "the brown looks nice, but I wonder what white would look like" etc.

There used to be a website for Youtubers to post submit their channel to different offers.

Like a shoutcart for YouTubers, high end sponsors.

I am not sure if I can find it but i'll try tomorrow.
