How Much Money Does Shmee150 Earn On YouTube?
The channel has over 2.4 million subscribers as of 2021 and has accumulated over 900 million views so far. It gets an average of 300,000 views per day. This should generate an estimated revenue of around $2,400 per day ($880,000 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.
Shmee150 makes extra income through sponsorship deals from companies like Huawei. Before YouTube, he used to own an online electronic and retail business that developed into a London high street shop. He sold the business and went to become a ski instructor. After this he worked in the technology team of an Investment Consultancy in London.
