How Much Money Does LilyPichu Earn On YouTube?
The channel has over 1.2 million subscribers as of mid-2017 and has accumulated over 170 million views so far. It is able to get an average of 200,000 views per day from different sources. This should generate an estimated revenue of around $360 per day ($130,000 a year) from the ads that appear as the video plays.
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 longer the viewers watch their videos, the more money they earn.
Lily makes extra income through her Twitch channel where she streams multiple times a week. Here she is paid through donations, paying subscribers and ads that appear during the streams.
