Exploring With Josh Net Worth – $800,000
Josh is the guy who runs the channel Exploring With Josh. He is half Ukrainian and half French Canadian. His content is mainly him visiting various places all over the world and in some places you never thought existed. Josh dropped out of college to do YouTube and he just had $3,000 in his bank account. The gamble worked out pretty well since he was able to gain a million subscribers in just a year and didn’t have to go back to college.
The first videos on his first YouTube account were Breakdance videos. He did these when he was 17 and still in high school. His current channel was started in 2014.
How Much Money Exploring With Josh Makes On YouTube?
The channel has over 4 million subscribers growing by 1,500 new subs daily as of 2019 and has accumulated over 400 million views so far. In a day, the channel gets an average of 200,000 views. This should result in an estimated revenue of around $800 per day ($300,000 a year) from ads that run on 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.
Josh gets extra income through the selling of merchandise on his website.
