Brand deals, adsense, merch, gigs, touring, patreon, books...there is so much value in online video, and we've had a really hard time converting it into dollars efficiently. Lots of YouTubers are able to support themselves, some even get rich, but most can only supplement their other projects and jobs with their YouTube related revenue. It may be that creators will need to move more into subscription-style content for higher budget endeavors.
But SciShow and Crash Course are safe and secure here on the YouTube platform. Both were designed with these systems in mind and have found a path to sustainability thanks to advertisers and our Patreon patrons.
Democracy only works when we vote. But voter laws are different in every state in America, so the process for registering to vote, checking your registration, voting absentee, early voting, finding your polling place, and what you need once you get there are different depending on where you live. But here we've simplified it. Just watch the video for your state and you'll have all the information you need.
One of our favorite things to do is take a complicated issue and tease out the knot a little bit. By avoiding politics and taking a larger, top-down view, we try to tell a complete story much faster than cable news can even talk about an isolated event.
