YouTube is not only the largest online video community but a whole world in its own. Being the second most visited website on the internet, YouTube garners around 1.9 billion login-in users per month. We all know how easy it is to earn money online these days but earning on a website, where five billion videos are being watched on a daily basis, sure seems like a big deal.
For a fact, the most subscribed Youtuber with 96 million subscribers, PewDiePie earns close to 1 million dollars per month. Not only this but these YouTubers are considered more or less like celebrities.
Despite all of this, an average YouTuber can make only about $0.5-2 per 1 thousand views. This makes it clear that YouTube isn’t that much of an easy deal -and of course, no magic is at work here. You have to put enough hard work and creativity to make it big.
Let’s dig it out more and learn how YouTube pays these Vloggers.
