How Much Money Does Marshmello Earn On YouTube?
The channel has over 5 million subscribers as of mid-2017 and has accumulated over 700 million views so far. It is able to get an average of 2.4 million views per day from different sources. This should generate an estimated revenue of around $4,400 per day ($1.6 million a year) from the ads that appear 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.
Marshmello makes most of his income through performing in front of crowds, selling music and music royalties. He makes around $2 – $10 million a year from this.
