How Much Money Does Dyrus Earn On YouTube?
The channel has over 800,000 subscribers as of 2018 and has accumulated over 260 million views so far. It is able to get an average 60,000 views per day from different sources. This should generate an estimated revenue of around $110 per day ($40,000 a year) from ads that appear 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.
Dyrus makes extra income from his Twitch account through donations, ad revenue and subscribers who pay a monthly fee. Currently he averages around 1,500 subscribers whereby he gets around $3 per sub every month.
