Hey everyone, i've recently made a YouTube gaming channel and had some questions about monetizing and networks. My Biggest question is do you have to monetize through YouTube before you can join a network? or can you join a network and not go through YouTube? i know they take like 40% or something and if you join a network like freedom they take another 40 so your left with like 20%. just seeing if rather then doing both i can just do the one and retain even a 60/40 setup if that makes sense. also what is a good time to join a network?, i've recently made my YouTube channel and made a lot of changes since my first video, i've got 41 videos up so far with 50 subs to date, i've only been at it for a month and a half and am actively apart of many gaming communities. just curious to know when a good time to start would be if there is one.
