How Much Money Do The Slow Mo Guys Earn On YouTube?
The Slow Mo Guys channel has over 13 million subscribers as of 2020 and has accumulated over 2 billion views since August 2010. In a day the channel will get around 600,000 views across its various videos. This in turn generates an average revenue of around $2,400 per day ($1.2 million a year) from the ads that run on the videos.
YouTubers get paid between $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.
The Slow Mo Guys make more money by selling T-Shirts from their website. They also get sponsorship deals from a number of companies such as Ubisoft, GoGurt, Lenovo and many more. These pay thousands of dollars for a mention in the videos.
