How Much Money Does McSkillet Earn On YouTube?
McSkillet has over 880k subscribers as of late 2017 and has accumulated over 200 million views since starting out in February 2014. In a day, the videos in the channel average around 60,000 views and this in turn generates an estimated revenue of around $110 per day ($40,000 a year) in just YouTube ads.
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.
McSkillet also has some CS:GO sponsorship which complement his YouTube income very well.
