Subscribers On YouTube

Do you want to make money on YouTube? You need subscribers—lots of them. And you can’t just buy them either; there are some rules about that. But if you’re willing to put the work in and follow those guidelines, then here’s how many subscribers you’ll need for each tier of monetization.

How Many Subscribers Do You Need to Make Money on YouTube?

So, for starters, in order to make any money at all on YouTube, you’ll need a total view count of about 30,000 hours within the past 12 months.

That’s pretty much impossible if you’re just starting out, and it’s why most people resort to buying views for their videos. But the guidelines are very clear on this, so YouTube made it impossible to game this system.

So, what does that mean? Well, you can’t just buy views for your videos and then quit your job because you’re making tons of money off YouTube. It’s just not possible unless you’ve got thousands upon thousands of real human beings watching your videos.

But while YouTube is against buying views, they are not against buying subscribers. And that’s why you’ll need 1,000 subscribers to be able to get AdSense revenue sharing on YouTube.

A thousand subscribers may seem like a lot for someone just getting started out. However, it’s actually not too bad compared to having hundreds of thousands of views.

So, if you’ve got 1,000 subscribers and your videos are getting about 100-500 thousand total views, then you’ll be making ad revenue off your YouTube channel.

How Much Money Will You Make?

There are no solid numbers on how much money you can expect to make per subscriber. But according to this article, you’ll be making about $2 per 1,000 views.

So, if you’ve got 100,000-500,000 total views on your videos, then you’re probably going to be making about $200-$1,000 per video. Of course, these are not the kind of numbers that will replace a full-time income. However, they’ll be enough to keep you afloat and allow you to grow.

Tiers of Monetization

Now let’s look at the next tier of monetization. You need 10k total views on your videos for this level of monetization using AdSense revenue sharing. But if you’re making about $2 per 1,000 views, then that 100k is really only bringing you $200.

The next tier for monetization is 10,000 total views or 10,000 subscribers. At this level of viewership, you’ll actually be making $2 per 1,000 views too. So, your revenue is actually doubled compared to the previous tier.

In order to get enough subscribers to make it to the final tier, you’ll need 100k total views or 10k subscribers. You might be wondering why these numbers are so close together, and that’s because YouTube is actually paying better per subscriber at this level.

At this point, you’re making $4 per 1,000 views, which means your total view count is now worth $400. It’s a slight increase of $100, but it can make a big difference for some people. It also shows that YouTube is more interested in providing you with ad revenue per subscriber at this level.

The next step up from there is 1 million total views or 100k subscribers. At this point, your total view count is worth $4,000. You just have to be making that much money if you want to move up a level in the monetization process.

The highest tier of monetization on YouTube is 5 million total views or 1 million subscribers. At this point, your total video view count is worth $20,000 for each new financial quarter. And you are now making $8 per 1,000 views.

In Conclusion

It’s true that you can make more money eventually by having lots and lots of subscribers eventually. However, the numbers aren’t as good as they used to be since YouTube is now paying out less per view. But it’s still possible to make a living just off your YouTube videos if you’ve got enough subscribers.

The numbers presented in this article are all according to the guidelines from YouTube’s monetization page, though. So, you should read up on them before you go around buying AdSense shares for your videos.

There may be a chance that these numbers will change in the future, but for now, they’re pretty accurate.

YouTube es una gran forma de ganar dinero si tienes la cantidad adecuada de suscriptores para tus vídeos. Puedes monetizar con los ingresos compartidos de AdSense, pero no es posible si no tienes 1.000 seguidores o 100.000 visitas por vídeo de media.
