Apart from that, World Bank has also slashed global growth rate for year 2016. Therefore, a tip for those who are surviving solely on Adsense, look into things like Influencer Marketing. Being on YouTube means that you have a certain power of influence over your fans. There are companies out there that help YouTubers pitch for advertisements and these jobs can be really rewarding for both YouTubers and Advertisers. It's Win Win.
In Malaysia, I recommend a great upcoming Influencer Market Platform called SushiVid. Their Website is http://www.sushivid.com
It's a simple platform where you can register your YouTube account to and the platform will be able to draw your YouTube Statistics for potential advertisers similar to websites such as VidStats and SocialBlade.
Malaysia is a fast growing country for the YouTube community with countless of opportunities flying around. Do stay strong and cruise through 2016 with confidence.
