    Has anybody here been with both networks?
    Curse gives you 90 percent but Maker only gives you 70 percent. But I hear Maker pays you more for their ads.
    So which company would you end up making more money with?

    You ask a question like this every week...

    You won't know till you join and check your analytics. It's different for everyone.

    If your channel is about gaming then obviously curse.

    Grow your channel more and try to get 80/20 rate. If I had to decide between the two I would suggest Maker.

    The difference is.. Curse has a standard CPM. And lot's of other networks have different CPM's based on the ads they sell.
    I get a CPM of 12$ sometimes, because my network sells the ad space to targeted advertisers.

    So that's what you wanna look at, percentages don't mean THAT much.
    Also 40% is going to YouTube, a percentage to your network, and your video could get lots of mobile views which don't really count (well they do, but long story short.. they don't)

    So check what CPM they deliver, and how their contact is with advertisers.

    Good luck

    Curse is paying me about 20% of what Machinima used to.

    I plan on changing Networks.

    Curse if you are in a gaming niche.

    But honestly I don't recommend joining networks unless you are a huge youtuber. Networks often give people false promises about how they will help you (Provide 24/7 customer support... etc) but they actually don't because they devote most of those resources to bigger youtubers since they guarantee more revenue. They also give you "Free/No copyright" music/sound effects to use when you can simply find these resources yourself online. In your case, curse is simply taking 10% of your revenue and does nothing to help you. However, you might want to compare CPM because it might be higher than other networks if you really intend to join one.
