The Try Guys Net Worth – $2 Million
The Try Guys is a popular YouTube channel that features multi-hyphenate personalities named Ned Fulmer, Keith Habersberger, Zach Kornfeld and Eugene Lee Yang who write, produce, direct, shoot and act in each episode. They have been able to generate an estimated net worth of $2 million from the platform. They first started out together under Buzzfeed Motion Pictures and grew massively in popularity. This helped them land a YouTube Red series in 2017 known as Squad Wars. They group left Buzzfeed in 2018 and started their own independent production company.
How Much Money Does The Try Guys Earn On YouTube?
The channel has over 7 million subscribers as of 2019 and has accumulated over 700 million views so far. It is able to get an average of 2 million views per day from different sources. This should generate an estimated revenue of around $8,000 per day ($3 million 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.
