Pure Living For Life is a YouTube channel created by a young couple named Jesse & Alyssa in the Pacific Northwest. They quit their lives in the city, bought 5 acres of land in a remote part of the country then started an off grid homestead 100% from scratch. Their videos consist mainly of what happens in their day to day lives. They do this so as to help others that wish to do something similar.
How Much Money Does Pure Living For Life Earn On YouTube?
The channel has over 450,000 subscribers as of 2019 and has accumulated over 150 million views so far. In a day, it gets an average of 170,000 views from different sources. This should generate an estimated revenue of around $300 per day ($110,000 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. 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.
