    I posted not too long ago asking for opinions whether I should switch to TGN or stay a YouTube Partner. I get about 150K views a month, currently have 31,388 subscribers and 2.14 million video views total. My channel is a year and half old and I WAS making around $500 a month with YouTube. Recently my rate has been dropping. I went from making $20 a day to making $5.00 a day!! I'm getting more views and my subscribers are getting higher. I don't understand why it's dropping so much. I have heard that the 4th quarter is the best paying because of the holidays and all so was that the reason why I was getting paid higher than I do now? I was going to stay a YouTube partner, but now that my rate is dropping I'm thinking about changing again. I was offered a partnership with TGN and just recently accepted into a Machinima Partnership. YouTube seemed more beneficial, but with the rate dropping I'm not sure anymore. What are your thoughts? YouTube? TGN? Machinima? Also, if I switch, will I still get YouTube Earnings with a new partnership? Currently when I'm paid I get YouTube earnings and then Adsense Earnings at the same time. Will this go away? Any help is appreciated! Thank you!
    P.S. I'm a makeup and hair styling channel.

    Can't advice you on the other questions, but the reason why you get much higher CPM on q4, is because advertising budget for most companies, as well as contracts are done on yearly basis, meaning at q4 you get the most companies with plenty of leftover budget to stuff around, and in q1 many of ad contracts for new year are yet to be signed. I think you won't have much better result atm, no matter which of those 3 partnerships you choose, as they have similar advertisers base.

    TGN pays horrible, and Machinima will rip you off blindly. Pick the most productive (for you) of the 2 greater evils...
