Just a quick YouTube search and you will find thousands of sponsored videos. A perfect example of corporate sponsorship on You Tube is the new fad “Little Black Bag”, which is a monthly subscription for approx $50 per month and in return you are sent several items in a black box once per month. All of the items will still have the price tag to make it appear that you are getting a bargain. Think again!
After watching a video from one of my favorite YouTube channels and a little research, I discovered that many of the items she received that month… that supposedly cost $10, $20, $30 – actually cost as little as $1.60 a piece. So, you pay $50 per month on items that only cost them maybe $5 TOTAL!
The YouTube videos are almost ALWAYS sponsored and posted for monetary gain. In these troubling economic times, spend your hard-earned money wisely.
