The channel gets an average of 5.2 million hits every day across its videos which results into a daily revenue of $21,000 ($7.7 million a year) from YouTube advertisements.
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.
Mark makes even more money through merchandise sales such as T-Shirts under the brand known as Cloak. He also get sponsors on some of his videos from a number of companies such as Best Fiends, Dirty Bomb, Robot Entertainment, Guns Of Icaru etc who pay thousands of dollars to have their products featured.
