Use this YouTube Money Calculator to see your potential to earn money on YouTube, purely from ads.
Now you’ve seen your number, imagine how much the most liked YouTube videos must be earning. I estimate it to be around £31,000 per day.
Of course, the really exciting news is that, depending on your niche, your potential to make money on YouTube could be as much as x10 times higher than the calculator estimates, due to the affiliate and brand sponsorship opportunities.
How much money per million views on YouTube?
This is a frequently asked question, but to calculate it we do have to use estimated figures. This will differ depending on your location.
If the average CPM (cost per 1000 views) in the US is $6-8, we can use a $7 figure to begin our calculations.
Taking the figure as a million views per year, it averages as 2,739 views per day.
This means that we would earn $6,998 per year from 1 million YouTube views.
The median salary in America is currently 92,800 USD. This means that to earn that figure purely from YouTube views, you’d need to manage 13.2 million views a year!
The reality is that if you were getting this many views you’d far exceed that figure, as the most lucrative forms of YouTube revenue are sponsorships and affiliate income.
