The ones with subscribers in the millions can make a partial living off of the YouTube ad revenue (although I believe it has dropped of late). The real money is when you have enough subs (again >1,000,000) that you start getting sponsorship offers and can sell channel merchandise.Really? I would have assumed it's a decent paying job.
That.His channel used to be good when he first got his 2018 GT. In fact he was one of the first on Youtube to get one and we have basically identical cars. Seems like a good dude but he definitely got more click-baity as time went on. Sucks that happened to him though. He mentioned he got laid off from his real job because of COVID, so I don't blame him for trying to maximize his YT earnings.
He used to genuinely love his eco boost and was very humble. Time and pseudo fame changes people.That.
I used to watch his channel back in 18 when he first got his. It was rather entertaining watching him go from an Eco to a fully loaded 18 GT.
Sadly, his channel went downhill (imho) when he started getting too click-baity. Lost a subscriber...
You're right. Well said.I think we are being a little harsh on him. He really came along way from a Stock Ecoboost to the 18 and then the Shelby. He earned his sponserships and I appreciate some of the insider reviews he did on the GT PP 2, the Shelby and other Ford products before they hit the street.
He knows what he is doing when he did all those mods, posted the drag races and disclosed his mods and beat just about all the competition. Hell, even his wife ran 10’s in that green beast.
I like the idea that after it broke, he had it towed to his speed shop guy and did not do any whining about what Ford did or didn’t do, etc.
I sorry to see his ride blow but I been there before.Some guys use the car for what it’s meant for, some show it and others daily drive.
Personally I hope Ford Racing increases his advertising revenue to offset his new engine.
Yep, he's not getting rich from you tube. Their is a money calculator which you put your Daily views in and it calculates your monthly and yearly profits. Now when you get into the Million views Daily margin and above you are now making some $$$. Plus the guy is funny and having fun while breaking stuff. Like me when I was young and dumbYou're right. Well said.
I cant tell if you are joking or not but I'm pretty sure you don't make a whole lot from YouTube alone everyone always complains about getting demonetized and the crap ad revenue.He has 100k+ Subs.. you realize how much money he makes right?
I agree. At a million views you total income is $40k but I am sure you have to pay something to do it. I would never try to make a living off of a media site.I cant tell if you are joking or not but I'm pretty sure you don't make a whole lot from YouTube alone everyone always complains about getting demonetized and the crap ad revenue.
It seems like to make good money you basically need to get sponsored and just become a shill or start your own company or something like that.
If you look again, it's 10,000,000 views for $40,000, not 1,000,000.I would never do it for the money. I thing the big you tubers have sponsors for sure

yeah, like pewdiepie (who got famous making video game videos mostly), he makes ~11million a year; roughly 21k per video. Of course hes at like 102 million subscribers, so he is a very extreme case; but you can definitely make a living from it with way less subscribersThe ones with subscribers in the millions can make a partial living off of the YouTube ad revenue (although I believe it has dropped of late).

In my daughter's case, she parlayed it into a networking opportunity at various YouTube/Google functions, made a lot of science industry contacts, tossed in a PhD in Genetics from Stanford, and now makes a very nice living doing video production for science based companies (and occasionally companies such as Red Bull). She still does her YouTube stuff and has a Patreon account, but it's a small fraction of her income.
