Ten Second Songs Net Worth – $400,000
Ten Second Songs is a music YouTube channel created by a guy named Anthony Vincent. He is known for doing covers of various songs in different styles. Before YouTube, he used Fiverr (a site where free lancers get paid $5 – $500 to do any task) to get paid by people who wanted a song in a different style. He opened YouTube with the purpose of promoting these services but the channel ended up getting very popular.
Anthony is from New York. He used to work at Home Depot before getting famous online.
How Much Money Does Ten Second Songs Earn On YouTube?
The channel has over 3.5 million subscribers as of 2019 and has accumulated over 200 million views so far. It is able to get an average of 160,000 views per day from different sources. This should result in an estimated revenue of around $650 per day ($240,000 a year) from the ads that run on the videos.
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.
Anthony also makes extra income through his Patreon account. Here people support him with a monthly amount and he may give some form of reward. Currently he makes around $200 a month.
