We all know the traditional way of earning money on YouTube is through AdSense, where YouTube will pay qualifying creators a portion of the money they earn through having advertisers show ads at the beginning, middle or end of their videos. But now, there are a few other ways to earn on YouTube and monetize your platform even further.
