In addition to that, they also announced the launch of the YouTube Partner Program, which allows content creators in Pakistan to monetise their original works. The revenue generated will be split, with a majority share going to the creator. Moreover, YouTube provides video creators with resources and opportunity to improve their skills and build larger audiences.
