Gamers Nexus Net Worth – $1.5 Million
Gamers Nexus is a tech YouTube channel and brand created by a guy named Stephen Burke. He has an estimated net worth of $1.5 million. His content generally includes things like PC hardware reviews, game benchmarks, component analysis, product reviews, news reactions and much more. He uploads an average of 5 videos a week on a regular basis. Aside from YouTube, Stephen also runs his own website where he does various hardware publications.
How Much Money Does Gamers Nexus Earn On YouTube?
The channel has over 2 million subscribers as of 2020 and has accumulated over 350 million views so far. It is able to get an average of 400,000 views per day from different sources. This should generate an estimated revenue of $2,000 per day ($720,000 a year) from the ads that appear on the videos.
YouTubers get paid $2 – $7 per 1000 monetized views after YouTube takes its cut. Monetized views range from 40% – 80% of the total views. All these are influenced by several factors like device played on, time of the year, the location of the viewer, ad inventory, how many ads there are on a video, how many people skip the ads, type of advertisement, ad engagement, type of content 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.
Gamers Nexus makes extra income through the website where they publish a number of news articles. They also have Patreon supporters who support them with a monthly contribution and sell merchandise through their website.
