VanossGaming Net Worth: $15 Million
Vanoss Gaming is by far the most hilarious YouTube gaming channel from my opinion. The channel was created by a Canadian guy called Evan Fong back in 2011 and together with his friends they produces the funniest gaming videos. He made his estimated net worth of around $15 million just from playing games and posting them online.
Evan dropped out of college while pursuing a degree in Economics to concentrate on gaming, a choice that his parents were not happy about at the start. The name Vanoss comes from VANOS, a variable valve timing system produced by German automobile company BMW. His channel has the format of Vanoss and his group friends chatting laughing and cracking jokes over gameplay.
VanossGaming channel features a wide variety of games with some of the best being from Grand Theft Auto V and Call Of Duty Zombies.
How Much Money Does VanossGaming Earn On YouTube?
VanossGaming YouTube Channel has over 23 million subscribers as of early 2018 and has accumulated over 9 billion views so far. Around 4-6 videos are uploaded in a week. Most videos hit 5 million views within the first week. The channel averages 7 million views every day from different sources. It grows by an average of 8,000 subscribers every day.This makes an average of $13,000 per day ($4.6 million a year) just from YouTube advertising. He does sell some of his merchandise to loyal fans through his website.
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.
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.
Vanoss makes extra income through sponsorship deals from companies willing to pay thousands of dollars for product exposure. He has worked with companies like Monster Legends, Best Fiends, Ubisoft, EA, The Division etc
