Jvloggers general discussion thread

Long time lurker first time posting.

Really disappointed with Chris Broad. His latest video is a blatant advert for TC.

 

 

At first I thought "Well he's just helping out a mate no big deal" but it seems he's fully on board the scam. Oh well another one to unsub from. Such a shame he must be making good money already why scam people?

I agree. The possibilities I can think of are:

- visa sponsorship

- outsourcing product deal management and having TC seek out further product placements for a cut of the revenue

- networking/ shoulder rubbing/ clique bragging rights?

 

A bit of a legal expert here: MCNs cannot sponsor you...especially if youre paying them more than what you're earning yourself.

Hi sorry if this is a bit off topic. Does Breaker Japan count as an MCN and if so, does that mean it doesn’t sponsor the visas of its influencers? I’m doing a bit of research into Breaker and this seems to be the best thread to ask about them. If it’s the wrong thread to ask I’ll take the topic elsewhere.

From what I can tell Breaker is an MCN but that's just my general/ non-specialised opinion.

My assumption is that the YTers who sign to MCNs in countries not of their origin self-sponsor their visas, which is possible under the 'artist' category for Japan. You need to prove a bunch of stuff (like yearly income of 3m yen), so I guess signing with an MCN will boost their chances of applying for/ renewing their visa since MCNs bring in sponsorship deals.

Thank you, that’s helpful to know! I had been under the impression that MCNs could help someone get a work visa. I’m actually surprised a vlogger/streamer can get an artist visa. So do Breaker get their money from the companies who want to promote through them, rather than the influencers themselves? Sorry if this is a stupid question.

I don't know the intricacies of MCN business models, but from what I do know, many take a cut of the influencer's fee. E.g. company Y is paying influencer to promote their product, MCN takes 20% of what company Y pays the influencer. IDK if MCNs will take a percentage of a YTer's general ad revenue from their videos as well.

oh hey another TC learn plug at the beginning.

this one was better than Okano's bc I liked Shiori more. It's also more informative bc Shiori did actually give some space saving tips.

can I get a general opinion from this thread?

my concern with making a TC thread is that there's quite a few big(ish) jvloggers in TC and that's what most the discussion here has been about, so this one might just end up becoming inactive.

Tokyo Creative involves quite a few Jvloggers, so it seems like this is the perfect place for that discussion. If we want to discuss other jvlogger stuff and TC at the same time then I guess we could make another thread, but there’s no other Jvlogger tea right now except for TC so I don’t really see the point atm.

I think that individual J-Vloggers (Abroad in Japan, Joey/Aki, Sharla) should have their own threads but TC can be discussed here and if it becomes character centric then we can transfer the conversation over there. As other problem YouTubers arise, we can make their own forums.

Hi everyone, new member here. 

I was just about to make a comment re: Mr. CEO prior to catching up with comments, but if others agree he needs his own thread I'd be fine with that. 

But imo Tokyo Creative as a whole can stay here.

Yeah, I agree with the above! Mr. Ceo can get out of here with his own thread, but Tokyo Creative does include lots of people so makes sense to talk about them here
