How Much Money Does Andrew Huang Earn On YouTube?
The channel has over 1.7 million subscribers as of 2019 and has accumulated over 250 million views so far. It is able to get an average of 150,000 views per day from different sources. This should result in an estimated revenue of around $600 per day ($220,000 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. 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.
Andrew makes extra income through song writing, selling music on iTunes, streaming income from Spotify & Apple Music and income from Patreon where fans contribute a certain amount monthly to support his work. The Patreon income currently stands at $1,400 per month.
