How Much Money Does Sky Does Minecraft Earn On YouTube?
Sky Does Minecraft has over 11 million subscribers as of the late of 2017 and has accumulated over 3.5 billion video views over its lifetime making it among the biggest channels on YouTube. In a day, the channel gets an average of 350,000 views across its various videos and this should generate estimated revenues of around $630 a day ($230,000 a year) from the ads that run on the videos.
Sky makes more money through his vlog which has over 1.1 million subscribers as of early 2016. It generates views of around 100,000 per day which will generate earnings of around $150 per day.
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.
