Life Uncontained Net Worth – $500,000
Life Uncontained is a popular YouTube channel created and run by a couple from Florida, United States who go by the names Mackenzie and Spenser. They have an estimated net worth of $500,000. The couple moved from Florida to Texas on March 1, 2018 after selling their cars, home and quit their jobs. They are now concentrating on building their debt free shipping container home and be completely off the grid. They utilize solar for all of their power needs and built a rainwater catchment system to meet their water demands. They plan to be as self reliant as they possibly can. They converted an old barn into a solar storage closet, set up and are using their DIY solar system with Tesla batteries, set up off grid internet and they even made the foundation of their shipping container home. Their content is mainly about sharing their journey with as many people as possible.
How Much Money Does Life Uncontained Earn On YouTube?
The channel has over 1 million subscribers as of 2020 and has accumulated over 150 million views so far. It is able to get an average of 350,000 views per day from different sources. This should generate an estimated revenue of $1,700 per day ($620,000 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.
The couple make extra income through their Patreon account where loyal fans can support them with a monthly paid subscription.
