    Yes there are rules, you can't advertise your own product. Even products that exist, can't be advertised.

    I have done youtube affilate marketing in the past, and this is my experience:

    Yes, you can promote products with youtube. Your video shouldn't be one big advertisement though, you need to provide value in your niche. In the description box, you can have a link to your product. I recommend using an URL shortener.

    As a rule of thumb you need to ask yourself: Is this video spammy? If you cannot answer yes honestly to this question, then create a new one. The last thing you want is to spam the youtube community.

    If you provide value, I don't see any reason why you shouldn't be able to promote products.
