CEO and founder of Freedom! (George Vanous)

110% revenue share for all YouTubers

Freedom! pays 110% revenue share to all YouTubers (10% more than what YouTube pays) for all your videos about games we publish, even if your channel is not monetized.

How does it work? Watch the video to the right

What games? See the games!

Free Steam games for Freedom! partners

Yes, Freedom! pays 110% revenue share to all YouTubers, but if you are a Freedom! partner you also get Steam games they publish for free and Freedom! pays you 110% revenue share for all your videos about them!

How does it work? Watch the video to the right

What games? See the games!

Convert your videos to monetized blogs

If your channel is not monetized (not in the YPP) or if it is monetized, Freedom! can convert your videos to monetized blogs to get more views and add incremental revenue for you.

How does it work? OVOB: one video, one blog

How much can I earn? Watch the video to the right

Who is eligible? All Freedom! partners

When can I start? Right now

Weekly payments

Freedom! pays you every 7 days instead of monthly.

YouTube itself pays only monthly!

7-year Freedom! Scholarship

Freedom! pays full-time salaries to deserving creators so they can quit the jobs they don’t love and become full-time creators overnight.

Meet the first recipient of the Freedom! Scholarship and hear his story in the video to the right.

Freedom! cannot give this scholarship to every creator, only those who #nevergiveup and who have raw talent that just needs full-time focus to grow into something amazing.

Better Content ID with Aegis

Freedom! built Aegis from the ground up to protect your original music and videos.

Aegis has features Content ID does not have, such as detailed revenue reports per asset and claim labels (Content ID has only basic revenue reports and asset labels, not claim labels).

Just give us permission, then we find all copies of your videos or music everywhere on YouTube (including channels in a Managed CMS) and monetize them for you.

Early payments

Freedom! pays EARLIER than YouTube itself.

We factor the YouTube receivable so your YouTube Analytics BECOMES your bank account balance showing how much money you can withdraw at any time, even daily.

Instant payments

Instantly withdraw the money you see in your YouTube Analytics estimated revenue at any time, even multiple times a day!


Three YouTube staff give dedicated support to Freedom! to help us keep your channel safe.

If your channel gets hacked, ypp-suspended or demonetized, there is no “wait 30 days” for a review. We escalate issues right away to our dedicated YouTube team so they get fixed in days instead of weeks or months.

The video How to NOT GET HACKED on YouTube shows how we reinstate hacked channels. The same goes for terminated channels, ypp-suspended channels, and demonetized channels that we reinstate usually in a few days by sharing context with our YouTube team if it really was a mistake by YouTube’s automated algorithms or human reviews.

Bottom line: Our team and YouTube help keep your channel safe.

Our team resolves not only strikes, but also copyright claims for you as best we can that otherwise redirect 100% of your revenue away to somebody else!

We educate you on best practices to avoid copyright claims and strikes. For those we cannot resolve for you, we explain the issues and work with you to fix them.

CEO spoke at YouTube Summit 2020 about Freedom!

YouTube invited George to speak to over 100 YouTube staff and MCN executives on Nov 18, 2020.

He presented Freedom! and how we help creators grow at the YouTube Enterprise Summit 2020 for EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa).

See the full YouTube speech by George.

CEO talks to you

Our CEO has an open door policy, meaning any Freedom! partner is welcome to talk to him directly.

And our CEO talks to you on The George Show every week.

First Steam MCN + YouTube MCN

Freedom! Games + Freedom! = First Steam MCN

  • Steam = YouTube
  • Game developers = YouTubers
  • Freedom! Games = Freedom!

See Freedom! Games on Steam

Early access to Steam games

All Freedom! partners get new Steam games published by Freedom! Games before everyone else in the world.

You can:

  1. Play new games without buying them (Freedom! buys them for you)
  2. Create videos and live streams before anyone else

Dreamscaper launched on Aug 14, 2020 and we gave 500 Freedom! partners fully-paid copies of the game 1 week before launch so they could create videos covering this anticipated Steam game with 85,000 wishlists before every other creator!

Dreamscaper is published by Freedom! Games, the game publishing division of Freedom!

Front page of Google

Freedom! gets videos on the Google front page using OVOB (one video, one blog):

  • Heavily customized WordPress platform
  • Combines WordPress + YouTube
  • Adds compelling text and screenshots (what YouTube is missing) together with video

See examples of our partners’ videos on the Google front page.

Get sponsored

Freedom! sponsors you with condenser microphones, ring lights, Steam games, Minecraft servers and cash.

3D virtual sets (your branding and webcam)

Get your own 3D virtual set to make special videos, free for our partners. MSI got their own 3D set created by Freedom! for promoting their new gaming laptops.

How to use it ➜

Major record label deals

Freedom! has contracts with all the major record labels (Sony, Warner, Atlantic, Interscope and more) so we can get you new pre-approved tracks every week from professional artists for your channels. You can also make custom requests for any track or artist you like at any time!

If it plays on the radio, Spotify or iTunes, we can likely get the permission to monetize for you.

Better FX (foreign exchange) rates

If you receive non-USD in the end, we pay you more money than your bank (or AdSense) does.


We give you better FX rates when converting YouTube’s USD to non-USD than any single YouTuber can get because we negotiated wholesale FX rates from the millions of dollars we pay creators like you each month.

Bottom line: You get more cash in your local currency when Freedom! pays you by Freedom! Bank Transfer than if YouTube pays you, given the same USD payout.

Email [email protected] to help choose the best option for you based on your country and currency.

Note: This “better FX” only works if you get paid by bank transfer (direct deposit), not PayPal or Payoneer. PayPal and Payoneer have much worse FX rates, so we strongly recommend switching to Freedom! Bank Transfer if you receive non-USD in the end.

Tax reduction strategies

Did you know Dubai legally charges 0% income tax on all your worldwide income, both personal and business? This is the law in Dubai. The government chose to make its money from fixed fees and a 5% VAT instead of a percentage of your income. What a refreshing idea!

We help you relocate to live and work in Dubai, and I (George) am the first guinea pig, now happily living in Dubai for two years. Two other YouTubers have already relocated to Dubai, and you can be next 🙂

There are also professional video production spaces right here, subsidized by the government. We help you get unlimited access to them if you have 10,000 subscribers or more on your YouTube channel.

No income tax, a community of creators, and free professional sound stages with equipment and lighting.

Learn more about “Why Dubai?”

Note: You get more benefit if you live in a country that does not tax your worldwide income. For more info about taxation as it applies specifically to you, see here and here.

Custom games (built free for you)

Let us build YOUR game.

We launched our first polished mobile game on Android and iOS in Dec 2019: The Clot Thickens.

Earn a revenue share if you promote our game!

We can build your game
in the same quality and polish as The Clot Thickens but in your vision.

  • We build it (our cost)
  • You market it to your audience (your cost)
  • We split the profits (only the game revenue, not your YouTube revenue or other revenue)

Our Studio Head, Dave Fracchia, was a Professor in the School of Computing Science for 7 years before joining industry as Vice President of Technology at Mainframe / Rainmaker for 10 years, then with Radical (an Activision company) for 7 years where he lead teams building AAA titles like Prototype and Prototype 2, as well as indie titles outside Activision.

So he knows a thing or two about making games 🙂
