Gonth Net Worth – $300,000
Daniel Gonthier is a gaming YouTuber from Cardiff, Wales, who mainly specializes in FIFA gaming videos. He has an estimated net worth of $300,000. He runs the channel called Gonth, previously known as Blackiegonth. Before YouTube, he used to work in Iceland in a job he hated. He started uploading FIFA videos in 2012 and has since gained a massive audience.
How Much Money Does Gonth Earn On YouTube?
The channel has over 1.7 million subscribers growing by 200 a day as of early 2017 and has accumulated over 340 million views since starting out. The channel’s videos cumulatively get an average of 50,000 views per day. This should result in an estimated revenue of around $90 per day ($33,000 a year) from ads that run 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.
