KidBehindACamera Net Worth – $4.5 Million
Michael Green aka Pickleboy is the cameraman and the mastermind behind the popular YouTube channel The Angry Grandpa Show. He is the son of Angry Grandpa and Tin. His other siblings are Charles, Jennifer and Kim. He runs his own channel called KidBehindACamera which is basically his vlogging channel together with other random content he posts. He started filming back in 2007 but his first channel got terminated due to violation of terms of service. He got back with the now really popular TheAngryGrandpaShow which eventually led to his current channel.
How Much Money Does KidBehindACamera Earn On YouTube?
The channel has over 2.3 million subscribers as of 2019 and has accumulated over 1.1 billion views so far. New vlogs are uploaded everyday onto it. In a day, it gets an average of 400,000 views across all its videos cumulatively. This should generate an average of $1,600 per day ($600,000 a year) from ads.
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 longer the viewers watch their videos, the more money they earn.
Michael makes extra income through selling of merchandise through their website. He also took over the TheAngryGrandPaShow channel after the passing of Angry Grandpa.
