How Much Does A YouTuber With 200,000 Subscribers Make?

UPDATE 8/4/2017: I currently have 240,000 subscribers. I make ~$12,000 per month. $3,000 comes from YouTube ad revenue and $9,000 comes from selling this digital marketing course. If you want to learn how to create your own infotainment YouTube channel you can get my course here: HowToYouTube.com


A couple months ago I went public with how much I made from my YouTube channel:

I make roughly $11,000 per month. About 65% of it comes from the affiliate cut I get from selling this online course.

About 30% comes from YouTube Ad Revenue:

And about 5% comes from other sponsorships, affiliates and partnerships like the one I have with WayUp where they pay me $0.75 for each user I get to sign up for their website.

I also get perks:

  • I attended a coding bootcamp in exchange for videos. They provided housing
  • I get free premium accounts to several platforms like Wix, Shopify, etc.
  • I've sold 3 condos in the Philippines with this video. I earned a 2% commission from each sale so I roughly made $7,500 from that video.



I'd like to address 2 FAQs:

Question: There's no way you're making that amount! I know YouTubers with way more subscribers and they only make a fraction of that! You're lying!

Answer: While it is true that more views and subscribers does generally mean more money, there are 2 things that are often misunderstood when it comes to making money off YouTube.  (1) Views are worth a different amount depending on the industry. Since I'm in the education industry my views are worth a lot more than views in the entertainment industry. The ads played on my channel are more expensive therefore YouTube pays me more money. (2) Since I'm helping someone with their career it makes sense for me to sell something that helps them with their career. The easiest thing to sell is education because if people can see themselves making money from the knowledge (e.g. college, coding bootcamps) then it's easy to convince them why it's worth the cost.

Question: That's really interesting Matt. I'm thinking about starting a channel myself. Would it be cool if we could jump on a call so I can ask you a few questions?

Answer: I just released a course on how to make a successful infotainment channel:HowToYouTube.com. In the course, I give my best advice and layout strong paradigm shifts in how you will go about creating a channel. There is a 30-day money back guarantee so you have nothing to lose!

Its lifetime earning is now $13,597.

 

Udemy also help instructors to promote their courses.

How to make a course on Udemy?

Let’s start with the production. You have to prepare your video or presentation that you will use as a tool to teach your students. Prepare it as soon as you can because making a video will eat so most of your time. You can use everything you already have to minimize expenses just like what Nick did. Using his wife’s dslr and web camera he was able to record and produce videos and finished his course in a month. .

When marketing your book, try giving it out for free to as many people as you can. The goal is to get at least 1,000 reviews so that the Udemy algorithm will start promoting your course. This strategy can also be done on Amazon.

How to be UDemy Affiliate

An affiliate is someone who sells courses on Udemy to get a commission. Anyone can start selling Udemy courses as long as they own their own website and have a little bit of traffic. To start, just grab an affiliate link from Udemy!

Udemy gives a 40% affiliate cut to their affiliates. Pick a niche, get some traffic by writing blogs or review in that niche, then put affiliate links to courses in that niche. You can model after Nick Loper’s blog here.

How To Prepare For A Coding Bootcamp

If you are planning to take a coding bootcamp, there are things you should consider before your first day at camp. If you enrolled on a Web Development bootcamp then you can apply these tips.

  1.     Go to FreeCodeCamp.com and do everything until advance algorithm & scripting.

FreeCodeCamp is an open source community that can help you to learn code. There’s no need to do advance algorithm and scripting on this community in order to be ready for bootcamp. But if you have more time, then do it. That will make you more ready for bootcamp. With FreeCodeCamp you can learn skills like JavaScript.

  1.       Get additional practice with html/css by creating a personal portfolio, and cloning websites that you like

After learning on FreeCodeCamp you can try making your own good projects and put it on your portfolio. This can help you practice what you’ve learned and easily apply it on bootcamp. You can also try to clone a website you like.

  1. Take an online AngularJS course. I like Teamtreehouse's course much more than codeschool or codecademy.

After learning and applying JavaScript, HTML and CSS, take an online AngularJS course. One of the good online AngularJS courses is Teamtreehouse. You can learn web design and coding from more than 1000 videos on this course. Here's an affiliate link to Team Treehouse: http://engineeredtruth.com/TTH

  1. You don't need to learn bootstrap

You don’t really need to learn bootstrap before attending bootcamp but it will be helpful for you to easily make a responsive website.

  1. You should absolutely learn code before going to a bootcamp to get the most out of it.

Before attending a bootcamp, it is important that you already know the basics because if you don’t it will be hard for you to learn advanced skills. Learning the basics while on the bootcamp will only eat your time that will result to learning few skills and waste of money and time.

Breakdown of How I Make $10k/month from YouTube

I recently launched my course on how to be a YouTuber. You can find it at http://howtoyoutube.com/ . In this course I will discuss on how I do things on my YouTube. In order to do this, I have to breakdown my sources of income to show you how and why I do things. I created most of my videos to earn money and half of it is to help you with your career.

This is how much money, YouTube ad revenue is giving me. I earned $33,070.87 for the past year with just the YouTube itself.

And the year prior, from May 1, 2015 to May 1, 2016 I got $14, 006.65 from YouTube’s ad revenue.

And I earned $2,961.66 from ad revenue on my very first year which is from July 4, 2013 to July 4, 2014.

2015 to 2016 is also the year I’m having doubts on my channel. For me to solve this and continue to earn money, I do a lot of experiment on my YouTube channel. I sell digital marketing course called Indemandcareer where Seth, a business and entrepreneur coach help students to get a job on digital marketing and earn $60K / year. We both sell it for $97 per month and split it 50/50 where we both get $45 and clickbank gets $7. In the beginning we earned $300 a week from selling this course and after a few months we started earning thousands of dollars. Not only our profit increases but also we started receiving emails from students that they got a job after taking the course. I interviewed most of them, some of it are already posted on my YouTube channel and some are still haven’t published yet.

So, if you’re planning to make your YouTube channel, you’ve probably earn good money through selling someone’s online courses or your own course. I don’t mind selling someone’s course like Seth’s Indemandcareer. We both share expertise, he makes the course using his 5 years of experience in digital marketing and I promote it to my audience on my YouTube channel.

Kudzai learned about this course through Matt's video and he immediately signed up for  the course.

2 Ways To Get Experience Before Getting A Job

Free education is abundant, all over the internet. It's the desire to learn that's scarce.  – Naval Ravikant, Cofounder and CEO of Angelist

Soon college graduates will be asking this question: How am I supposed to get a work experience if nobody wants to hire me without experience?

You shouldn't worry anymore because here are some of the ways to get experience before getting a job.

Learn On Your Own
Internet is playing a very important role in our lives especially in education. It provides us instant information by means of articles, images, and videos posted on different platforms like YouTube. With YouTube, you can learn almost everything. Let's say you are struggling with Math, patrickJMT a youtube channel will teach you techniques and the easiest way to solve math problems. He’ll help you better understand different equations whether it’s calculus or trigonometry. You can also learn hands-on skills like welding from weldingtipsandtricks. Many of us find it more easy to understand things by watching it rather than by just reading on it.

Apply on websites that cater to college students and new grads
It may be hard for you to get a call despite sending a lot of emails to companies who are looking for new applicants. There’s usual websites where you can find jobs like indeed.com and LinkedIn but these sites may not be suited for you especially if you're a college student or new graduate. You have to realize that you are competing with different applicants with more experience than you. But you don't have to worry because there are site like WayUp.com who specifically cater to people like you. With WayUp, you can build you own profile where you can put all your information and achievements where over 12,000 employers can browse it.

Copywriting – What is it and How to get into it?

Copywriting is a growing industry that many haven’t heard of because it’s not taught in schools. Copywriting has a lot of opportunities to work from home, and opportunities to make a lot of money. Charlie Price has been a copywriter for over 3 years now and runs a facebook group called Traffic and Copy (10,000+ members) where he shares information and tips on how to be a copywriter.

What is Copywriting?
Many of you might be confused of what copywriting is. Some thinks it's a process where someone copies someone else’s written content online or think that it's the same as copyright. Copywriting is a process of writing a content which purpose is to advertise or market a certain product. This is usually appeared on social media accounts, brochure, billboards, websites, emails and advertisements on tv. The content what copywriters do is called Copy. It is a short message with a goal of getting the reader's attention to take an action. The action might be to purchase or engage
with a product, service or company.

Which type of copywriter do you want to become?
If you want to work at an agency, you will be working with different clients. Some of these clients are in need of someone to handle their social media accounts. So basically, you will be copywriting products that they want to sell on social media.
If you want to have a part-time job then go as freelance copywriter. Freelancers write for anyone they choose and want to. Some businesses hire freelancers when there is no in-house writers or they are in need of more writers to do load of works for a certain period of time. The good thing about this is you can explore and get experiences writing for different companies and products.

How big the Copywriting industry is?
There are thousands of advertising agencies where they hire a lot of copy writers for their clients. Their clients are from big and small company who wanted their market to be bought and make a mark on a specific platform. You can also find copywriting jobs by finding companies who are in need of individual copywriter. You can easily find a job because of the internet businesses growing nowadays. Companies need to compete with others in order for their product to be on top.

Do I need a degree to do this?
No. There are copywriters with college degrees and high school graduates. But if you have a degree in English it will be an advantage for you. According to Charlie, a Math degree will also help you with writing. Probably because you will be paying attention on the number of words you
are allowed to write for a certain content. Because copies are usually short but with a direct message to get the reader's attention.

How to start in this career?
You either start freelancing or being an apprentice. You can find copywriter freelance jobs on websites like elance and upwork. Being an apprentice for a copywriter will also help you build your skills and name. You can also find facebook groups to join like Traffic and Copy. It has been more than 10,000 members. This kind of facebook groups will help you learn more about this career, find jobs and find people who are also in the same career. Charlie started his career by sending cold emails to different companies who needed improvement on their copywriting. He suggested to keep it short, light and conversational.

How much do copywriters make?
Salary depends on different factors. This depends on where and who you are working for, if it is a big or small company. You also need to consider your learning and experience. The more experience you got the bigger the digits are. Charlie also shared that being a copywriter allows him to travel on different countries.
