How Much Money Does Matt D’Avella Earn On YouTube?
The channel has over 900,000 subscribers as of 2018 and has accumulated over 100 million views so far. It is able to get an average of 330,000 views per day from different sources. However, Matt does not make any money from his YouTube since he keeps his channel ad free. He does get support from fans through his Patreon account. Currently he has over 900 patrons who donate a minimum of $4 per month. This should add up to a minimum of $3,600 per month.
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.
