What It Takes To Run A Big Channel

YouTube’s biggest stars don’t always work alone. In fact, some of the biggest channels have whole production teams and operate like television shows.

Here are a few examples of channels that actually have whole teams of people behind the camera.

1. Rhett and Link

Rhett and Link host the Good Mythical Morning Show daily. With that high volume of videos being churned out, it’s no surprise that they have a whole crew that they work with.

Every day, they have a new sketch, new animations, two or more companion videos, and a fan giveaway. With that much on their plate, it certainly takes a village. The payoff of having one of the most watched YouTube shows is worth the effort.

2. Philip DeFranco

Philip DeFranco started with daily vlogging about whatever was on his mind. More recently, he has become one of the first and foremost YouTube news channels, focusing on internal YouTube affairs.

His daily report, aptly titled The Philip DeFranco Show, is not the result of one man’s efforts. Rather, he has a team of people who help him research and script episodes of his show.

3. Smosh

Smosh, at one time the largest channel on YouTube, was never just a two-man operation. With several channels to manage and projects to push forward, as well as frequent uploads, it helps to have not just one team, but several.

Upon the departure of former partner and co-creator Anthony Padilla, Smosh removed the curtains and introduced the entire crew in this video.

For a new YouTuber, seeing the volume of videos and productions larger channels can produce is a little discouraging. Keep in mind, though, that these channels are not one or two-person operations but rather whole teams of people. Who knows, they may even want to bring on a new personality in the future.
