How Much Money Alex Aiono Earns On YouTube?
The channel has over 5 million subscribers as of mid-2017 growing by 9000 new subs daily and has accumulated over 600 million views so far. It is able to generate an average of 1.1 million views per day from different sources. This should generate an estimated amount of around $2,000 per day ($730,000 a year) from the advertisements that run on the videos.
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 several factors like device played on, the 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. Apart from ads, YouTubers also generate extra from YouTube Red viewers who pay a monthly fee to view premium content on YouTube plus watch videos without ads. Here they get paid based on watch time on their videos. The long the viewers watch their videos, the more money they earn.
Alex makes extra income from music sales and touring.
