In a world where we’re all trying to work out where and how we’ll make a living in the future, many wonder if YouTube is a solution. It can be, but you have to be in the top 100 channels.
The top 1,000 channels also average $23,000 in monthly ad revenue….
But how much actual income for the artist is there? Â Not as much as you’d hope.
Â Well, the top YouTube videoÂ ever,Â Gangnam StyleÂ (I know, I know) has over one billion views and counting (somewhere around 1.6 billion as of today) and generated about $870,000 dollars for Psy and his record label. While that is more than a quarter of a million dollars, itâ€™s maybe not as much as one might think would be earned for aÂ billionÂ views.
