The Ballinger Family is a family of five that posts its family vlogs on YouTube. The channel is run by Chris who is the father. Other members are Jessica, the mom, and three kids by the names Bailey, Jacob and Parker. Chris and Jessica started dating when they were in high school. Chris’ siblings are actually big internet personalities. His most famous sister is Collen Ballinger aka Miranda Sings and his other sister is Rachel Ballinger.
Before starting his YouTube channel, Chris used to make magic videos for a company for over 7 years but he eventually got laid off in 2014. That was when he decided to make his own videos full time.
How Much Money Does Ballinger Family Earn On YouTube?
The channel has over 1.5 million subscribers as of 2020 and has accumulated over 500 million views so far. It is able to get an average of 250,000 views per day. This should generate an estimated revenue of around $1,250 per day ($450,000 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.
