Hello good people of BHW, I run a YouTube channel with over 100,000 subscribers and nearly 60 million total views. In the past, I made good money with YouTube, as YouTube's monetization used to pay very well. My videos are still getting a good amount of views, however recently I haven't been making nearly as much from ads. What was once as high as $17,000 a month has now been reduced to around $1,000 per month. This is due to a variety of reasons. For one, there was an ad boycott where advertisers pulled there ads due to being afraid of them appearing on controversial content. Secondly, YouTube is becoming more strict about the videos you can monetize to keep the advertisers happy. I still get a great amount of traffic from YouTube, and my channel is in the paranormal / mysterious niche. I started a Patreon but it has so far been insignificant. I obviously need to find new ways to make money on YouTube, as the traffic is there, but the dollars are not. I was wondering if anyone has any ideas in terms of diversifying revenue streams on YouTube? Should I reach out to brands to make custom advertisements on my channel. The struggle with that is that I don't know of many brands that want to advertise on my channel's niche. If you have any ideas about how I can make more money with my YouTube channel, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance!
