We all know YouTubers can earn a lot of money but lots of views doesn’t always equal cash.
To try and find out how many views are needed to make big bucks and how those views can be turned into money, Business Insider spoke to several YouTube stars who have different levels of fame.
Natalie Barbu 100,000 views – between $500 to $1,000 (£384-£769)
This YouTuber started her channel when she was in high school.
After eight years of posting about fashion, beauty and her life, she has 257,000 subscribers.
She also has more than 20,000 videos with over 100,000 views.
She told Business Insider that she can earn between $500 and $1,000 for this type of video depending on how many ads she includes and is aware that advertisers pay more for informative business-related content.
Austen Alexander one million views – $40,000 (£30,763)
Austen Alexander is one of four YouTube influencers that Buisness Insider spoke to who can garner one million views for a single video.
Enabling every ad option has helped his earnings.
He can earn around $40,000 if he includes things like banner, preroll and midroll ads.
Videos over 10 minutes is another method to fit more adverts in.
People who use less adverts will earn less money but are less likely to alienate subscribers.
Shelby Church claimed that a video with one million views can earn her between $2,000 and $5,000 (£1,536-£3,842)
Paul Kousky 150million views – $97,000 (£74,593)
This YouTuber is famous for his Nerf gun experise.
He has over 10.9 million subscribers and earns most of his YouTube money from ads on his channel PDK films.
His highest earning video went viral and got 150million views, which is sure to continue to grow.
So far he has earned $97,000 from this.
He would have earned more if more of the views came from the US as money from adverts can be more or less depending on what country people are viewing them in.
