WhispersRed ASMR is a popular ASMR YouTuber from London, England whose real name is Emma Smith. She has an estimated net worth of $700,000. Autonomous sensory meridian response is a tingling sensation that typically begins on the scalp and moves down the back of the neck and upper spine. Emma started out back in 2013 before ASMR became a thing thanks to inspiration by fellow YouTuber GentleWhispering. She has since grown tremendously and has been featured on mainstream news channels such as BBC, ABC News, Al Jazeera, Daily Mail, The Mirror etc.
How Much Money Does WhispersRed ASMR Earn On YouTube?
The channel has over 900,000 subscribers as of 2020 and has accumulated over 280 million views so far. It is able to get an average of 160,000 views per day from different sources. This should generate an estimated revenue of $800 per day ($300,000 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.
Emma makes extra income through sales of her book Unwind Your Mind.
