How Much Money Does AsapScience Earn On YouTube?

AsapScience channel has over 6 million subscribers as of late 2016 and has accumulated over 700 million video views. A video is uploaded once a week on Wednesdays. The channel averages about 500,000 video views every day and grows by around 1,000 subscribers per day. This will translate to revenues of about $750 per day ($270,000 a year).

A YouTube channel can generate earnings from around 60% of the video views it gets on average. They will get paid around $2-$5 per 1000 views if they get most of their traffic from developed countries with high ad inventory. Advertisers are usually charged if you watch 30 seconds of the ad or to completion, whichever is shorter.

AsapScience has a direct advertiser at the end of majority of its videos. These ones usually pay more since the channel doesn’t split the money with Google. The creators also sell various books and merchandise like T-Shirts to fans so this creates an additional substantial amount of revenue.
