How Much A YouTuber Can Make?

It depends on various factors, a YouTuber can make 100 dollars per month and another may generate 100 dollars per day.

The very first thing which makes a huge difference is the niche of your video content and here are the top 10 YouTube niches:
  1. Gaming (live gaming videos and hacks)
  2. Lifehacks (solution based videos)
  3. Celebrity gossip (viral stories)
  4. News
  5. Top 10 lists
  6. Compilations of people’s fails (funny videos)
  7. Food reviews and kitchen hacks
  8. Product unwrapping/reviews
  9. How to guides
  10. Animal activities
  11. Spoof
  12. Pranks
As these are the top ranked niches for making money on YouTube, you have to choose your best niche and the topic on which you can create at least 3 videos per week and join the list of richest youtubers.

Your subscribers will need you to upload new videos on relative topics and thus YouTube ranks you above the trending videos, keyword-based rankings and more pages like related videos as you can see in the sidebar (below the video on mobile) at the sidebar.

Why these are the top niches?

Because there are two main factors that contribute to your final YouTube earnings and these are:
  1. CPC: Cost per click
  2. CPM: Cost per thousand impressions
For most of the videos, CPC contributes to the final earnings and there is much difference between CPM and CPC earnings.

In simple words, CPC is when someone clicks on the ads running on your videos and CPM is when you earn after completing 1000 video-views.

So, if your videos are engaging and people tend to come to your videos on Youtube more than often, you are most likely to generate much revenue from CPM ads that run on your Youtube videos.

On the other hands, if you are targeting CPC-based keywords and talking about a business, you may get more clicks on ads and the CPC ads will contribute to your final earnings that is the best way to make huge money on YouTube.

How much do YouTubers really make?

An average YouTuber with 1 million+ subscribers is capable of earning $5,000 per month. However, there are many professional YouTubers with less than 100K subscribers who are still earning more than $1k per month with sponsored content and brand mentions.

There's no magic formula to earn $5k+ from YouTube every month, it depends on various factors such as your videos engagement, the number of ads running on your videos, events and also the locations of your viewers and your selected niche.

Usually, people search about how much money do YouTubers make and who is the biggest YouTuber, but, some of you also ask about how much do small Youtubers make? and our answer is simple:

So, if you ask the same questions again, the answer is the small Youtubers make more than $100 every month.

How much do YouTubers make per view

If you ask me how much does youtube pay per view then I will say "It depends" on CPM (cost per mile) or RPM (revenue per mile). For example: If you are earning $10 CPM then your per view earnings will be $0.01. Yes, you are earning 1 penny per view.

However, there will be some clicks and long-video-ad views and for that, your earning may get lower or higher. So, in an actual state, we can't say how much does a YouTuber makes per view.
