How Much Money Does TechSource Earn On YouTube?
The channel has over 1.7 million subscribers as of 2018 growing by around 1,000 new subs daily and has accumulated over 350 million views so far. In day, it gets an average of 200,000 views from various sources. This should generate an estimated revenue of around $350 per day ($130,000 a year) from the ads that run 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.
TeachSource is also able to generate extra income through sponsored videos from different companies willing to pay thousands of dollars for product exposure. They have been sponsored by Gigabyte, Phanteks, Crucial, GetNice, LG, Dollar Shave Club, Audible and many others.
