Jaiden Animations Net Worth – $600,000
Jaiden Animations is a YouTube channel run by a girl by the name Jaiden. She has an estimated net worth of $600,000. Her content is generally animations about her life, stories and experiences together with other random stuff. She does the animations alone.
Before Jaiden started YouTube she was in high school and she started animations while still in high school. She didn’t go to any class to learn the art but slowly by slowly she taught herself. Her father is a Caucasian while her mother is Japanese and they both grew up in Canada but currently living in United States. Her channel was created back in 2014. She uses a Cintiq 22HD drawing monitor to do her work.
How Much Money Does Jaiden Animations Earn?
The channel has over 4 million subscribers growing by an average of 3,000 new subs daily and has accumulated over 500 million views so far. It is able to get an average of 700,000 views per day from different sources. This should result in an estimated revenue of around $1,300 per day ($480,000 a year) from the 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. 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.
Jaiden makes extra cash through her Patreon account and selling of merchandise through her website.
