Kara and Nate Net Worth – $600,000
Kara and Nate is a YouTube channel run by an American couple from Nashville. They have generated net worth of $600,000 from the channel. Their content is basically them filming their experience traveling to 100 countries by 2020. It all started with an idea to take 1 year off before their lives got too serious and they thought doing daily vlogs would be a fun way to document it. They left their home with just 2 carry on bags in January 10th 2016 and halfway through they knew they didn’t want to stop traveling the world anytime soon.
During their travels, they usually wake up at around 8am work on their computers editing videos, writing and other stuff then after lunch they start filming their adventures.
How Much Money Do Kara and Nate Earn On YouTube?
The channel has over 1.8 million subscribers as of 2020 and has accumulated over 280 million views so far. It is able to get an average of 380,000 views per day from different sources. This should generate an estimated revenue of around $1,900 per day ($700,000 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.
YouTube makes up around 30% of Kara and Nate’s income. They make more income through their Patreon account ($2,500 a month), course sales ($5,300 a month), affiliate income ($4,000 a month) and sponsored content ($1,000 a month).
