Super Best Friends Play is a gaming YouTube channel started by three gamers from the United States. Matt is the originator and who also streams all sorts of other games on his Twitch channel. Pat, the gingerman baby who tagged along for the ride and likes to play RPG games. Woolie is an FGC diehard who fought Daigo and lived. He has his own separate YouTube channel.
How Much Money Does Super Best Friends Play Earn?
The channel has over 680,000 subscribers as of mid-2017 and has accumulated over 520 million views so far. It is able to get an average of 270,000 views per day from different sources. This should generate an estimated revenue of around $500 per day ($180,000 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.
