How Much Money Does MrSuicideSheep Earn On YouTube?

The channel has over 6.3 million subscribers as of early 2017 and has accumulated over 2.4 billion views so far. It is able to get an average of 3 million views per day from various sources. This should generate an estimated revenue of around $4,500 per day ($1.65 million a year) from the ads that run on the videos.

YouTubers get paid between $2 – $5 per 1,000 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.

    Wrong answer. He barely makes anything from Youtube, because he doesn’t upload his songs/tracks. Those tunes belong to the record labels on which they are released and hence claimed by them as soon as Suicidesheep uploads them. Therefore, the revenue goes to the original owners of the songs.

      That as may be but there is still a revenue to be had through Google’s Monetization programme. (See Google’s Terms) for having a Targeted Audience for their Ads

      How certain are you that this occurs systematically on his channel? It might be considered ‘savvy’ by labels to waive any DMCA claim on ad revenue for the sake of the exposure their artists gets – which pays off on other channels that are monetised by the artist/label.

      In a 2014 Reddit AMA, MrSuicideSheep stated that he made a full-time living from the channel. Things will only have improved since then, as his audience has grown. Even the most conservative end of SocialBlade’s current estimate range puts the channel at $200K+/year (with the top end north of $3M/year) – not that it’s gospel.

      We’re living in an age of new revenue models – of music channels like MrSuicideSheep, MajesticCasual, Trap Nation and myriad ‘Let’s Play’ channels. Many labels/publishers understand the value and let it slide, knowing they’ll see the yield downstream in increased monetised music stream plays and purchases (or purchases in the case of video games).
