Almost No One Is Making a Living on YouTube
 

 
One of the main attractions of YouTube is that anyone can become a star. There are no gatekeepers. No talent agents or television executives need to be won over. Stars can come from anywhere. And they do.

Forbes' recent list of the richest YouTubers is proof: It's filled with people who post clips about playing video games or kids playing with toys. The top spot went to Daniel Middleton, known as DanTDM. He's a 26-year-old British gamer - and he earned $16.5 million (approximately Rs. 100.7 crores) last year.

But a new study finds that the odds of striking it rich on Google-owned YouTube - or even making a modest living - are vanishingly small.

Reaching the top 3.5 percent of YouTube's most-viewed channels - hich means at least 1 million video views a month - is worth only about $12,000 (roughly Rs. 7.82 lakhs) to $16,000 (approximately Rs. 10.4 lakhs) a year in advertising revenue, according to Mathias Bartl, a professor at the Offenburg University of Applied Sciences in Germany, whose study is one of the first to probe YouTube data for clues about how it works for creators.

Bartl found that it's gotten harder for new creators to reach the top, as YouTube alone adds 300 hours of video every minute and the biggest stars become more successful. The median views per video has plummeted to 89 in 2016 from 10,262 a decade earlier. At the same time, YouTube's biggest channels are gobbling up more eyeballs. The top three percent of channels got 64 percent of all views in 2006. A decade later, the top channels took 90 percent.

YouTube did not immediately respond to a request to comment on the study.

What's happening on YouTube is occurring across the Internet, where creators are finding that long odds of success in the online world are not so different from IRL (Internet-speak for "in real life").

In fact, they might be worse.

Odds of becoming a famous YouTuber in 2018 about the same (or less) than becoming a famous rapper

Both jobs that lazy and stupid people want to do so they don't have to apply themselves, but then realize it's a lot more work to get on than they thought

i find that article a bit misleading

u CAN make a living off of Youtube

I guess they are only considering making millions. But many Youtubers can make around $50,000 to $100,000 annually just from videos alone. Idk, but that seems pretty good to me. i can easily get by with that sorta money in a year. Also that sorta job will allow you a LOT more free time, compared to a traditional type of job.

But yes, a lot of Youtubers get money from Youtube views, Patreon support, sponsored videos, live stream donations etc

So in the end yeah it can add up a LOT

Look at someone like Flossy Carter, he has a job and does Youtube as well. He doesnt have sponsored videos, but has over 700k subscribers. That sorta subscribers would easily pull in $5,000 a month

IMO, if u do Youtube and make at least $3,000 a month, then u should be able to make a living. Just think smart, live within YOUR means and use your extra free time WISELY.

The article did say that... OP just didn't put it...

Now, YouTube is taking steps that make it even harder for creators at the bottom. The company recently said channels need to reach 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 hours of watch time over the last 12 months before they can start to earn money from ads. YouTube said the change is aimed at discouraging videos with objectionable or offensive content and that it would "affect a significant number of channels."

Most people get donations from they subscribers and that can add up trust me


You got over 100k followers even if half of them only donate let's say 5 dollars you still good. Live shows I watch people get donation after donation and some people not cheap and will drop 20 or 40 dollars
