The local YouTube scene in Malta, from our perspective, is huge, with locals tuning in to watch their favourite YouTubers religiously.
Although from the Maltese creator’s perspective, the motivation is lacking; even with local YouTubers such as Stella Cini and Grandayy blowing up the scene. This is partly due to the fact that Malta is one of the very few countries in the world in which YouTube monetization through Google ads is not supported.
For the people that are fascinated by the extremely strong Youtube community or are looking to join the creator’s movement, Google are sending over four representatives to Malta that are going to be giving talks on how to maximise your Youtube reach and create exciting, inspiring content.
The event will be held on Friday 16th March between 4pm and 7pm at the University of Malta on Valletta Campus. MEP Francis Zammit Dimech will be hosting the event.
There will also be an Italian YouTuber (unnamed) who will be giving a talk of ‘How to make it on YouTube’ after Fabian Borg (founder of the local YouTube community) will give a few details of what is to come.
Following the success story from the Italian YouTubers , a representative from YouTube will be offering brief training and tips on how to make the most out of YouTube, addressing beginners to creators who are curious to open a channel which will act as a business.
Experts from Google & YouTube will also be answering questions put forward by the audience.
Gadgets will be covering the event so keep an eye on our website and Facebook for our event coverage.
