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.
Here's what you can do instead of relying only on the Adsense check:
Sell your own products and services
Use the YouTube platform to book offline opportunities
