Most importantly, never ask this question (How much do youtubers make) to YouTuber! Their answer in most cases would be that they would either earn nothing or cents! But let’s actually take a look at all of this and this article will show you real numbers on how, with what tools and how much you can generate in real-time, so let’s get started! Of course, it all depends on the visitors – the more visitors the channel has, the more money YouTube gives us. It’s also important from which countries visitors come from, but we’ll talk about it later.
Let’s Start !
So here’s a general statistic on how much money can earn the owner of channel per visitors:
- The 1,000,000 visitors from the American continent (America, Canada) are worth $ 1,000.
- 1,000,000 visitors from Western Europe and the European Union (France, Italy, Germany, Spain, the Netherlands) Are about 800 Euros .
- 1 million visitors from Eastern Europe (Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, Georgia, Turkey, Azerbaijan, Armenia) Approximately $ 450-500.
- 1,000,000 Visitors From Asia (Pakistan, India) About $ 350 – $ 400.
Google pays 68% of money earning by advertisements to the channel owner! Google pays two kinds of activity – clicking and watching a video ad!
Let’s dive into this issue now and answer the question of how to make money on YouTube! Once you turn monetization on the channel, you’ll be able to earn some money!
Everyone knows that the YouTube platform has been in ownership of Google since October 9, 2006! So Google offers the following types of ads on our channel:
- Commercial View.
- Advertisement at the beginning of the video.
- Advertisement during the video.
- Advertisement in the upper right corner.
In addition, we will explain what each of them means:
Commercial View is special ads that appear on our channel and we can’t miss them. They usually appear at the beginning of the video and there is no ‘Skip’ button for them.
As for Advertisement at the beginning of the video, this is the most common advertising tool for YouTube. Perhaps each of us has seen an ad like this, but the benefit of such an ad for the audience is that we have to watch it for a maximum of 5 seconds. If we aren’t interested in advertising, we can skip it. It is worth mentioning that if we do not watch the ad (we click the skip button), in such case it does not pay any cent to the channel owner.
If the viewer watched the ad for more than half the time..
Then Google will pay the owner of the channel, whether or not the viewer pressed the skip button (after watching the half of the video). The third type of advertisement is ads that are within the video. The owner of the channel adds these ads and determines their number. In this case, only one restriction applies – the video should be longer than 10 minutes, otherwise, YouTube will not allow you to use this type of ad.
As for the last option, this is the square advertising place upper right side of the display, where the ads appear constantly, but it depends on us if we introduce information given in the ad or not. So we can already talk for what Google pays for!
For what Google pays for!
Google pays for two things – visitors and clicks!
If you are a channel owner, in the end, you will not get much from your visitors ! The most important is the clicks by the visitors, which is where the biggest money is made! That’s why YouTubers often say to click on ads and to subscribe to their channel. Why? 1 click is more than 1000 visitors!
Yes, Google will pay you a few cents per 1,000 visitors, and you can earn even a few dollars in one ad click! That is why content is the most important! which subject matter does your channel has should also be taken into consideration. For example, financial thematic channels generate about 5 times more revenue than the entertainment channels. But it is noteworthy that entertainment channels always have more viewers and subscribers than “financiers”.
In this article, I would also like to tell you about the general statistics on making money in different periods of time. All this will probably be some guide and motivation for every beginner YouTuber.
However, this is not all!
Very few people actually talk about how much money YouTubers can make by passing the YouTube platform directly! From people who are contacting them and ask to make special videos about their products! It has become so widespread that established as a separate direction that is called “Influencer Marketing”. Believe me, most YouTubers earn a lot more money by this than YouTube pays them. Most importantly, besides influencing, there are many ways to earn: Affiliate Link, Donation, Merchandising. We will talk about all of this on our site in detail.
