Would getting a partnership help with a small channel?

Title pretty much says it all, Would getting partnered get more attention to a small channel and see more views from it? Or would it be mostly just saying you are partnered with a network. I know trying to grow on YouTube starting out is the hardest thing, but I have heard that getting partnered does help out with getting views and subscribers. But who knows they could have been lying, so does anyone know if it would help?
