Gentle Whispering ASMR Net Worth – $1.3 Million
Maria is the lady who runs the channel GentleWhispering. She is also referred to as Gentle Whisperer. She has an estimated net worth of $1.3 million. Her channel’s content is basically just her whispering different things into a mic. This will send a euphoric wave of tingles down the spines of her views and this is referred to as ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response).
Maria emigrated from Russia to United States back in 2006 for a student exchange program then settled in Maryland. She started her YouTube channel in 2011
How Much Money Does Gentle Whispering ASMR Earn On YouTube?
The channel has over 1.9 million subscribers as of 2019 and has accumulated over 650 million views so far. It is able to get an average of 380,000 views per day from a wide variety of sources. This should generate an estimated revenue of around $1,500 per day ($550,000 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 long the viewers watch their videos, the more money they earn.
Gentle Whisperer makes extra income from her vlog channel. It is still relatively small as compared to her other channel.
