How Much Money Does Alpha M Earn On YouTube?
The channel has over 5 million subscribers growing by an average of 2,000 new subs daily and has accumulated over 800 million views so far. Around 3 videos are uploaded every week. In a day the channel is able to get an average of 550,000 views per day which should result in an estimated revenue of around $2,200 per day ($800,000 a year) from advertisements.
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, 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.
Outside YouTube, Aaron works on selling his line of hair products called Pete & Pedro and clothing line M. Apparel. These are able to supplement their income.
