    • Advertising revenue: A share of revenue generated from ads displayed before, during, or after your videos.
    • YouTube Premium: A portion of subscription fees earned when Premium members watch your content.
    • Channel memberships: Offer exclusive perks to paying members for monthly recurring revenue.
    • Super Chat, Super Stickers, and Super Thanks: Allow viewers to tip you during live streams and premieres.
