TheStradman Net Worth – $2 Million
TheStradman is a YouTube channel created and run by guy named James. He has an estimated net worth of $2 million. His content is mainly doing vlog videos and super car videos. His dream car is a 2004 Ferrari Challenge Stradale, hence the screen name “Strad”man. He grew up in a middle class household and studied accounting at Oregon State then later worked as an accountant. He pursued YouTube after getting laid off from his job. He owns a 2006 Lamborghini Gallardo in Arancio Borealis.
James also travels alot and this is evident in his videos. He has been to countries like China, Turkey, Italy, Dubai etc doing vlogs and exploring the cars in the different countries.
How Much Money Does TheStradman Earn On YouTube?
The channel has over 3 million subscribers as of 2020 and has accumulated over 600 million views so far. In a day, it gets an average of 600,000 views from different sources. This should generate an estimated revenue of around $3,000 per day ($1.1 million a year) from the ads that appear on the videos.
YouTubers get paid between $2 – $7 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, 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.
James makes extra income through buying and selling cars at a profit.
