Money Kicks is a YouTube channel run by a young guy by the name Rashed Saif Belhasa from Dubai. He is the son of Dubai construction billionaire Saif Ahmed Belhas. His content is mainly flaunting some of his expensive items he buys such as a Ferrari F12 Berlinetta, designer shoes, sneaker collections, a $30,000 Rolex, Yeezy inspired Cadillac Escalade and lots of other stuff.
How Much Money Does Money Kicks Make On YouTube?
The channel has over 800,000 subscribers as of mid-2017 and has accumulated over 50 million views so far. It is able to get an average of 150,000 views per day from different sources. This should generate an estimated revenue of around $270 per day ($100,000 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.
