How Much Money Does SmashBits Animations Earn On YouTube?
The channel has over 450,000 subscribers as of mid-2017 and has accumulated over 50 million views so far. In a day, it gets an average of 240,000 views from different sources. This should generate an estimated revenue of around $430 per day ($160,000 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 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.
