Abroad In Japan – $500,000


Abroad In Japan is a YouTube channel created by a sarcastic British guy called Chris Broad. He has an estimated net worth of $500,000.  He moved to Japan to work as a teacher under the Jet Programme back in August 2012. He mainly documents his experiences of his life in Japan and puts his dying hobby of film making to good use. His videos take the form of a mini-documentary and try to make Japan accessible to everyone by giving advice to travelers visiting the country or folks looking to move to Japan. He also posts a number of videos for those who  are curious about the more bizarre and unique aspects of Japanese culture.

How Much Money Does Abroad In Japan Earn On YouTube?

The channel has over 1.8 million subscribers as of 2020 and has accumulated over 230 million views so far. It is able to get an average of 180,000 views per day from different sources. This should generate an estimated revenue of around $900 per day ($330,000 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.

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.

Chris Broad makes extra income through his Patreon account where he has over 2,600 people who support him every month with a small amount of money that is as little as $1.
