How Much Money Does Simon’s Cat Earn On YouTube?
The channel has over 4.3 million subscribers as of early 2017 and has accumulated over 870 million views so far. In a day, it gets an average of 350,000 views which should generate an estimated revenue of around $530 per day ($195,000 a year) from the ads 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 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 and biggest channels. The ad rates here are higher than the normal rates.
Simon makes extra income from the selling of merchandise on his site and book sales.
