I've been seeing a lot of YouTubers complain about their Adsense check being smaller than usual because YouTube isn't monetizing videos.

Some folks are even thinking about leaving the platform altogether.

As a content creator (and viewer), I think YouTube shouldn't be any creator's only source of income.

  • Sell your own products and services
  • Affiliate links
  • Sponsored videos
  • Use the YouTube platform to book offline opportunities
