How Much Money Does Variant Comics Make Online?
The channel has over 1.5 million subscribers as of 2018 and has accumulated over 240 million hits since 2012. In a day this channel is able to get an average of 180,000 views across its videos. This in turn generates estimated revenues of around $330 per day or around $120,000 a year all from advertisements on YouTube.
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.
