The Kats Family is a new channel started by popular YouTuber FouseyTube whose real name is Yousef Erakat. He has an estimated net worth of $4 million. He got famous by doing prank videos and motivational videos. He then later ventured into vlogging his personal life in his other YouTube channel which is successful. His latest challenge is to try out family vlogging. He moved into his parents’ house in New Jersey. There he gets to film his brother, his sister in law and his two young nephews. They all do vlogs, challenges and skits.
How Much Money Does The Kats Family Earn On YouTube?
The channel has over 600,000 subscribers as of late 2017 and has accumulated over 15 million views so far. In a day, it gets an average of 200,000 views from different sources. This should generate an estimated revenue of around $360 per day ($130,000 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.
