Chris and Queen is a YouTube channel run by a couple named Chris Sails & Queen Naija. They have an estimated net worth of $600,000. Their content is mainly doing vlog videos, challenges, pranks, story times and others. Chris grew up in Michigan and he met Queen at a high school basketball game. They have dated each other since April 2013 and currently have a son together. However, in 2017 the two separated after Chris got caught cheating plus they had a lot of disagreements over many things. Chris currently runs this channel as his personal channel.
How Much Money Does Chris and Queen Earn On YouTube?
The channel has over 3 million subscribers as of 2018 and has accumulated over 450 million views since starting out back in late 2016. It is able to get an average of 550,000 views per day from different sources. This should generate an estimated revenue of around $1,000 per day ($360,000 a year) from the ads that show up 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.
Chris and Queen make extra income in other ventures outside YouTube while Queen has her own separate YouTube channel.
