How Much Money Does Annoying Orange Earn On YouTube
The main channel has over 10 million subscribers as of 2020 and has accumulated over 7 billion views so far. It is able to get an average of 2 million views per day from different sources. This should generate an estimated revenue of around $10,000 per day ($3.6 million a year) from the ads that appear on the videos.
The second challenge, The Annoying Orange Gaming, has over 3 million subscribers and has accumulated over 1.8 billion views so far. It gets an average of 600,000 views per day from different sources. This should generate an estimated revenue of around $3,000 per day ($1.1 million a year) from the ads.
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, they also generate extra from YouTube Red viewers who pay a monthly fee to view premium content on YouTube plus watch videos without ads.
