Aphmau Net Worth – $7 Million
Jess is the young lady who runs the YouTube channel popularly referred to as Aphmau. She has an estimated net worth of $7 million. She is a gamer who mainly does Minecraft videos but has done other games like Pixelmon, The Sims 3, Spore etc. She started out with a Minecraft Tekkit series and a Saints Row the Third Series. She is from Houston Texas. She is currently married with two kids, Joseph and Julia.
Jess had the idea to start the channel with her three friends and her husband after she saw other YouTubers making a career out of it. They created Challenge Accepted Inc in August 13, 2012 but later other partners left leaving only Jess and Dom. The channel was renamed to Aphmau Gaming. She also owns a business called BluJay Studios which has hired more people to help in creating more videos.
How Much Money Does Aphmau Earn On YouTube?
Aphmau has over 5 million subscribers as of 2020 and has accumulated over 3.4 billion views since starting out back in 2012. Jess uploads multiple videos on her channel everyday and the channel is able to get an average of 1.7 million hits per day plus grows at around 1500 subscribers daily. This should in turn generate an estimated revenue of between $8,500 per day ($3.1 million a year) from 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, 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.
Jess earns extra income from selling merchandise on her website and doing sponsored posts on her social media accounts.
