How Much Money TheBajanCanadian Earns On YouTube
TheBajanCanadian YouTube channel has over 5.8 million subscribers and has amassed over 1.8 billion views since 2010. The channel gets around 270,000 hits every day across its videos and this will generate revenues of around $500 per day ($180,000 a year) from the ads that run 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.
Mitch has a clothing line called posh life clothing which will put more money into his bank account.
