How much do youtubers make money [ Real example]

Whenever you search for ways of making money online, one of the most frequently mentioned techniques is non-other than the site that’s considered an endless source of entertainment – YouTube. 

However, before getting started with YouTube, the most important question people have in mind is how much do YouTubers make or what’s an average YouTuber earning?

So today we are going this question for all of you who are seeking to make a career out of YouTube or just looking for a passive income:

How much do YouTubers make money online?

If you have read any other post about how to make money on YouTube or How much do YouTubers make money online then you know that nobody clears states how much exactly you can earn through the site and there is a strong reason for it.

There are many ways using which you can earn money through YouTube but the easiest and the most used way of them all is none other than Google Adsense.

The problem, however, is, that the income of Google Adsense is very unstable and it’s hard to forecast how much you may earn per thousand views and on top of that you cannot be sure how many people will watch your video which makes the whole guessing process harder.

But why is it so hard guess a YouTuber earning?

When you include Adsense on your video to make money on YouTube, the service shows ads to your viewer prior to your videos and you earn money for every ad which is shown which is known as YouTuber earning.

These ads are of two kinds in nature dubbed as CPC and CPM Ads. If you are not familiar with the term it means some ads pay on the basis of Clicks and others on the basis of views.

For example, all the ads you see on TV are based on views. They are intended to make you aware of a company’s product or service and there are similar ads on YouTube too.  So whenever someone watches them you get paid.

Then there are CPC ads which are seen only online where you are paid when someone clicks on the ad shown on your blog and similarly there are ads shown before your video where you are paid when someone clicks on the link the ad intends to promote.

Since each one of these ads pays differently and you cannot predict how many people will click on the ads, you can never know for sure how much will be a YouTuber earning.

The good thing, however, is that because there are so many people using YouTube, through studies and experience of people who are working to make money on YouTube, you can actually predict a Windows of how much you can earn.

This window is not accurate but it can give you an idea of how much you can earn per thousand views and by using it you can guess how much money you can earn from YouTube from a number of views you estimate you’ll get.

For Indian channels who are receiving views from India, only this window or average RPM (Revenue Per Mile or Earning per thousand impressions ) is somewhere between $2 to $5 per thousand views.

It means if your video gets 100k views you can somewhere from $200-$500. Of course, it’s a broad window but considering how many factors play a role in deciding your income, it’s the best estimate.

But if your target audience is mainly from countries like USA and UK then your income may be double for the same number of view because the ads show in that country give more revenue to Youtube and you will get more commission for the same.

If you are looking to invest some money and want to decide whether or not you’ll be able to recover you should calculate things using the lower scale.

For example, if you want to buy a camera or spend money on ads and you expect your video to get 100k views, except to earn $200 from it and make your budget accordingly.

Though even after reading so much, many people feel confused how much they may earn if they become a successful YouTuber,
