    Just some conversation! There has been a trend from famous youtubers lately. The whole "YouTube is facing a full-scale advertising boycott" as a smaller channel owner this scares me a bit. I haven't even began my career in youtube and now it could be on its way out? What's your thoughts? :eek:

    Don't depend on google for commissions they pay low anyway. Offer your own service/product/anything that pays better

    These titles are getting annoying and add zero to the thread section! This week I've seen SEO is dead, IG sucks, Google is dead and now this BS.

    None of these platforms are over or dead, they are adjusting thanks to IM spammers and noobs, it's only logical they adapt to this and if you can't keep up or being innovative IM is not your thing!

    Although a few companys stopped some million-dollar-worth advertising there's nothing over. There are new companies who'll spend their money on youtube. Just try to get in contact with your fans over other channels like facebook and twitter and maybe even your own website and you're kind of independent of youtube. But I don't think Youtube is "over" or things like that, Google won't let it come that far as soon as there money is in danger.

    I thought it was just me getting irritated by all those IM dead posts!

    And the pathetic thing is that most of those knuckleheads are not even into IM

    These companies will be back, youtube is way too big for them to leave permanently. Youtube is not dead and never will be, this is getting boring now

    LOL Yeah right, Youtube is dead. There's always a new "this thing is dead" post every few days.

    There are a ton of ways to make money from Youtube videos besides their ad network. Here are a few:

    - Put your product in the video description
    - Put affiliate products in the desc
    - Sell links in your desc
    - Make the video about something you're selling
    - Use overlay links to direct traffic
    - Sell your youtube traffic
    - Get subscribers and build your channel
    - Establish a brand

    I really don't get why people limit themselves so easily. You gotta get creative and actually work to make money, it's not just "post video, get money" and really never will be.

    What's happening on YT is actually very bad. Those advertisers leaving is a big deal. Now YT is removing ads from channels that aren't 'mainstream' enough and the content of YT is taking a huge hit for it. Many people who made their income there can no longer do it. Some of my favorite channels are now shutting down. Lack of imagination on their part? Probably but I don't blame them. They're not marketers.

    For instance, I watch a lot of UFO/ET (Esoteric) videos. Some of those channels are some of the top channels on YT. Now YT is talking about shifting to becoming more like a Netflix type site even more than they already were going in that direction. If you're affected by this update, I'd say go get some third-party sponsorship. YouTube isn't dead of course but it's becoming much different from an income point of view.
