How Much Money Does Jaclyn Hill Make On Her YouTube Channel?
The beauty channel has over 6.3 million subscribers as of 2019 and has accumulated over 550 million views since it was started back in September 2010. In a day the videos in the channel get an average of 200,000 views. This should generate an estimated revenue of around $800 per day ($300,000 per year) just from YouTube ads.
YouTubers get paid between $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.
Jaclyn Hill is able to add more income through sales of a highlighter named Champagne Pop, which is a collaboration together with Becca Cosmetics.
