How Much Money Does Shmee150 Earn On YouTube?
The channel has over 880,000 subscribers as of late 2016 and has accumulated over 330 million views so far. It gets an average of 250,000 views per day. This should generate an estimated revenue of around $450 per day ($170,000 a year) from ads.
YouTubers get paid between $2 – $5 per 1000 monetized views after YouTube takes its cut. Monetized views range from 40% – 60% of the total views. All these are influenced by different factors like device played on, location of the viewer, ad inventory, how many ads there are on a video, how many people skip the ads, ad engagement etc. There is also a program known as Google Preferred where deep pocketed companies can target ads on the top 5% most popular content. The ad rates here are higher than normal.
Shmee150 makes extra income through sponsorship deals from companies like Huawei. Before YouTube, he used to own an online electronic and retail business that developed into a London high street shop. He sold the business and went to become a ski instructor. After this he worked in the technology team of an Investment Consultancy in London.
