The Detail Geek Net Worth – $700,000
The Detail Geek is a YouTube channel created by a guy named Mitch who is from Regina, Saskatchewan in Canada. He has generated an estimated net worth of $700,000 from the channel. His intention for starting the channel is for owners of automobiles who share the same passion for the art and beauty of cars that he does. He believes that detailing and paint reconditioning are not just an advanced skill but a true art form that is understood and practiced by a select few. His content is mainly just him doing all kinds of detailing and transforming dirty vehicles and nasty carpets into looking like they are new again.
How Much Money Does The Detail Geek Earn On YouTube?
The channel has over 2.5 million subscribers as of 2020 and has accumulated over 250 million views so far. It is able to get an average of 480,000 views per day from different sources. This should generate an estimated revenue of $2,400 per day ($880,000 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.
