In 2013 we saw a tremendous increase in YouTube creators using various forms of crowdfunding to financially support their channels. That will only increase in 2014 as Adsense revenue proves to support only two kinds of videos. Those who want to make a third kind of content will need more money than Adsense and provide. Other business models will develop as YouTube becomes the marketing and community side of larger revenue streams made off-site.
