FaZe Banks Net Worth – $3 Million
FaZe Banks is a YouTube channel run by an American gamer whose real name is Ricky Banks. He has an estimated net worth of $3 million. He is the Chief Operating Officer of the famous Call of Duty gaming group called FaZe Clan plus he is one of the owners. He joined the group while living in Miami Florida. His content is mainly doing vlog videos together with his girlfriend Alissa Violet and other FaZe Clan members.
How Much Money Does FaZe Banks Earn On YouTube?
The channel has over 4.8 million subscribers as of 2019 and has accumulated over 450 million views so far. It is able to get an average of 600,000 views per day from different sources. This should generate an estimated revenue of around $2,4000 per day ($66,000 a year) from the 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.
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.
Ricky has made more income through his professional gaming team the Faze Clan and merchandise sales.
