Wild Wonderfull Off-Grid Net Worth – $700,000
Wild Wonderful Off-Grid is a YouTube channel created and run by a couple by the names Erin and Josh Myers. They have an estimated net worth of $700,000. Together with their three children, they built their dream house from the ground up in a forested mountain region of West Virginia. Initially, they lived near the city their entire lives but one day they decided to sell everything and move into an RV on a 73 acres land. They established a working farm and built an off-the-grid A-frame house. They documented the whole process together with what they are up to as a family trying to achieve a self-reliant life.
The couple run a second channel by the name “Wild Wonderful After Show” where they document their family life outside the build.
How Much Money Does Wild Wonderful Off-Grid Earn On YouTube?
The channel has over 900,000 subscribers as of 2021 and has accumulated over 170 million views so far. It is able to get an average of 150,000 views per day from different sources. This should generate an estimated revenue of $1,200 per day ($440,000 a year) from the ads that appear on the videos.
YouTube content creators based in the US, UK, Canada and Australia generally get paid $2 – $12 per 1000 monetized views after YouTube takes its cut. Monetized views usually range from 40% – 80% of the total views. All these are influenced by several factors like the 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.
The couple makes extra income from their second channel. They also work with various brands to sponsor their videos. Some of them include brands such as Honey, Simpli Safe, Square Space, Skillshare etc. Merchandise sales is also another source of income.
