How Much Money Does Draegast Earn On YouTube?

The channel has over 1.5 million subscribers as of 2018 and has accumulated over 420 million views so far. New videos are uploaded onto it multiple times a day. It is able to get an average of 200,000 views per day. This should generate an estimated revenue of around $360 per day ($130,000 a year) from ads.

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.

Kenny makes extra income through selling of merchandise from his website. These include t-shirts and hoodies.
