ChrisFix Net Worth – $1.6 Million
ChrisFix is an automotive YouTube channel run by an American guy named Chris from New Jersey. He has an estimated net worth of $1.6 million. The channel’s content is generally all about teaching anyone how to fix their car with easy to follow, step-by-step “how to” style videos. These videos go into detail so beginners can follow along. There are also plenty of “top tips” in each video so even experts can learn something new. The goal is for the viewer to save money, know the job is getting done properly, and feel great after they fix their own car.
How Much Money Does ChrisFix Earn On YouTube?
The channel has over 6 million subscribers as of 2019 growing by 3,000 new subs daily and has accumulated over 800 million views so far. New videos are uploaded every week onto the platform. It is able to get an average of 650,000 views per day from various sources and this should generate an estimated revenue of around $2,600 per day ($950,000 a year) from the ads that run on the videos.
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.
Chris gets extra income through the selling of merchandise such as key chains, bumper stickers, hats etc. He also gets money from affiliate sales (commissions earned from the sale of a product) through the product links he posts in the video description.
