Wanna know how much money you can make on your YouTube channel if you can just build up your fan base?
Interested to find out just how many subscribers you’ll need in 2019 to really get the cash rollin’ on in?
If you want to know everything there is to know about how monetization and subscriber numbers fit together then you’ve come to the right place.
So what are we waiting for?
Let’s jump straight into it.
In 2019, do all Youtubers with a million or more subscribers have advertisers and brands beating down the door?
Are these oh-so-lucky folks with their huge audience numbers constantly being offered wads of cash by advertisers hoping to cash in on their influence?
The answer may surprise you.
The number of subscribers you have will most certainly attract you some wanted attention from businesses and brands.
However, sponsorship and advertising deals are today reserved for those YouTubers who not only have a huge number of subscribers but who also have an extremely active and engaged audience.
The fact is that nowadays the number of subscribers is far less important than the level of engagement you’re getting on your content.
That means that in addition to growing your subscriber numbers, you also need to focus on the likes, views and comments you’re getting.
In 2019, more and more businesses are looking to work with micro YouTubers, creators with smaller audiences that are highly active and engaged.
If you want to earn a lot of money, it’s far better to have a smaller number of subscribers that are highly active.
Quality it seems, in 2019, counts far more than quantity.
So how do you get engagement?
By making great content and by talking to and engaging with your audience fully.
In order to achieve this, you need to know your audience well and give them what they want.
Ideally, you want to put out a video that is so good (it could be entertaining, funny or useful) that the number of views you get actually exceeds the number of subscribers you have.
This is important because it tells businesses and big brands that you are making the kind of content that people want to see and engage with.
Asking your audience questions (as well as replying to every single comment you get on your videos) will help you to increase your engagement levels and ultimately to attract more opportunities for monetization.
You have probably figured out by now that all depends on the monetisation strategies you put into place.
If you have a million subscribers, but you’re only getting 100, 1000 or even 10,000 views per video, advertisers are going to think twice about wanting to work with you.
However, if you have a million active and engaged subscribers, plenty of video views as well as on a ton of comments, you could easily pull in a seven-figure salary.
With Google AdSense, every time 1000 people watch your video you get paid about a dollar. But that’s the starting rate, the lowest possible.
It can go up to around 7 dollars. That should give you some idea of the type of range you’re looking at so that you can begin to calculate your potential earnings.
So when you are just starting out, if you can bag a million views per month that’s $1,000 a month in your pocket, just from google adsense.
