Elvis The Alien Net Worth – $100,000
Elvis The Alien is YouTube channel created by an American YouTuber known as Elvis Horton. He has an estimated net worth of $100,000. He started out by making gaming videos, however, he soon realized that those videos weren’t getting that many views so he switched to doing commentary styled videos. He later joined a podcast called ‘Hot Wet Soup’ with BionicPIG and Zaptie. The podcast was later closed due to feud with Zaptie.
How Much Money Does Elvis The Alien Earn On YouTube?
The channel has over 700,000 subscribers as of 2018 and has accumulated over 80 million views so far. It is able to get an average of 120,000 views per day from different sources. This should generate an estimated revenue of around $220 per day ($80,000 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. The cost of an ad view is based on an auction between advertisers based on views. Advertisers have to bid a minimum of $0.01 per view.
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.
Elvis makes extra income through selling merchandise through his website.
