How It Should Have Ended Net Worth – $6.5 Million
How It Should Have Ended is a popular YouTube channel created by Daniel Baxter and Tommy Watson back in 2005 when they returned home from the movies and laughingly discussed various alternate endings. Daniel proposed the idea of making short, parody animations of new ending to some of their favorite movies. Tina Alexander previously worked with Daniel on some live action short films and joined the team soon after the completion of the first animation, How Matrix Revolutions Should Have Ended.
The content on the channel is mainly animated parody alternate endings to major motion pictures in cartoon form with the aim of making people laugh.
How Much Money Does How It Should Have Ended Make On YouTube?
The channel has over 10.5 million subscribers as of 2020 and has accumulated over 3 billion views so far. It is able to get an average of 1.2 million views per day from different sources. This should generate an estimated revenue of around $6,000 per day ($2 million 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, 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.
The team make extra income through selling merchandise through their website.
