startTime durationTime text
00:00:00 00:00:05 nowadays upwards of 75 of kids want to
00:00:02 00:00:07 become youtubers so i'm gonna ask 100
00:00:05 00:00:09 online video creators how much they make
00:00:07 00:00:10 to see if youtube is truly a viable
00:00:09 00:00:12 career option to start things off i
00:00:10 00:00:14 booked a flight to orlando florida this
00:00:12 00:00:16 is where one of the largest meetups for
00:00:14 00:00:19 financial youtubers takes place and as a
00:00:16 00:00:21 side hustle financial youtuber i think
00:00:19 00:00:23 that means i'm supposed to go right so i
00:00:21 00:00:25 got up at 4am and made it to the airport
00:00:23 00:00:27 with my friend ethan who happens to be
00:00:25 00:00:29 the first youtuber i ask i usually do
00:00:27 00:00:31 about 200 a month with about 10 to 15
00:00:29 00:00:33 000 views per month let's see the
00:00:31 00:00:36 lifetime revenue come on bro damn that's
00:00:33 00:00:38 not bad for 5k subs by next year that'll
00:00:36 00:00:40 be at let's say like what 40 50 easily
00:00:38 00:00:42 becoming a youtuber has been a dream of
00:00:40 00:00:43 mine ever since i was 12 years old for
00:00:42 00:00:46 years and years i made cringy videos
00:00:43 00:00:48 getting 30 to 40 views each and it was
00:00:46 00:00:50 until multiple channels and years down
00:00:48 00:00:52 the line where i started to see success
00:00:50 00:00:54 i made a video titled i sold candy at
00:00:52 00:00:56 school for one week and it absolutely
00:00:54 00:00:58 blew up gaining over 1 million views and
00:00:56 00:00:59 from that point on i was making a few
00:00:58 00:01:01 thousand dollars every month from
00:00:59 00:01:04 youtube and now flash forward to the
00:01:01 00:01:06 month of august 2022 you guys can see i
00:01:04 00:01:08 just had my first 10 000 month from
00:01:06 00:01:10 youtube adsense that's pretty freaking
00:01:08 00:01:13 crazy so to get a deeper look i made it
00:01:10 00:01:14 to orlando and interviewed people with a
00:01:13 00:01:16 banana so today we're at fincon with
00:01:14 00:01:18 what used to be a banana the top of this
00:01:16 00:01:19 will do since sadly i broke off but
00:01:18 00:01:22 we're gonna ask some youtubers how to
00:01:19 00:01:24 get rich oh what's up hi erica how are
00:01:22 00:01:26 you doing erica kohlberg is a financial
00:01:24 00:01:28 youtuber and tiktoker best known for
00:01:26 00:01:30 this strength she has no idea i know
00:01:28 00:01:32 watch this i met her along with a lot of
00:01:30 00:01:34 other tiktok friends on this trip i
00:01:32 00:01:36 gotta ask you right away how much money
00:01:34 00:01:38 do you make a lot how much money do i
00:01:36 00:01:40 make yes um quarter meal what do you do
00:01:38 00:01:42 for a living i'm a content creator you
00:01:40 00:01:44 make tiktoks i do i make tiktoks
00:01:42 00:01:46 i'm on youtube and instagram as well
00:01:44 00:01:48 joseph vogue what's up dude i love you
00:01:46 00:01:50 so how much money do you make a lot more
00:01:48 00:01:53 than i want to disclose to the irs what
00:01:50 00:01:54 do you do for a living ex equity analyst
00:01:53 00:01:56 spent a lot of time learning
00:01:54 00:01:58 professional investing and giving that
00:01:56 00:02:00 advice and now i'm a youtuber i think
00:01:58 00:02:02 the first month i made all of about
00:02:00 00:02:04 thirty dollars last month i made about
00:02:02 00:02:06 thirty five thousand dollars i quickly
00:02:04 00:02:08 learned at fincon that these people make
00:02:06 00:02:10 a lot of money but it doesn't always
00:02:08 00:02:13 come from where you think it would about
00:02:10 00:02:14 90 is sponsorships affiliates so
00:02:13 00:02:17 everything like youtube tiktok all
00:02:14 00:02:19 that it was like 10k probably 80 of it
00:02:17 00:02:21 from brand deals as a short form content
00:02:19 00:02:23 creator you typically aren't gonna make
00:02:21 00:02:25 anything significant from google adsense
00:02:23 00:02:27 but if you can find creative ways to
00:02:25 00:02:29 monetize your audience it can be very
00:02:27 00:02:30 lucrative i've been doing content for
00:02:29 00:02:32 about five six years since people have
00:02:30 00:02:34 known me about two years how much money
00:02:32 00:02:35 do you make from doing that about 250
00:02:34 00:02:37 000 a year and can you break that down
00:02:35 00:02:39 for me is that adsense sponsorships or
00:02:37 00:02:41 like selling products what are you doing
00:02:39 00:02:43 mostly people finding me through social
00:02:41 00:02:44 media and signing up for a service or
00:02:43 00:02:46 buying a product on the other hand i
00:02:44 00:02:49 have a friend who runs a youtube shorts
00:02:46 00:02:50 channel with over 600 000 subscribers
00:02:49 00:02:53 and despite getting millions of views
00:02:50 00:02:56 his ad revenue is non-existent in the
00:02:53 00:02:59 last month from adsense i've made 46
00:02:56 00:03:01 dollars no way 41 million views but also
00:02:59 00:03:03 i have all my videos ads turned off why
00:03:01 00:03:06 is that um because a lot of my videos
00:03:03 00:03:08 get demonetized just because uh susan i
00:03:06 00:03:10 made one dollar yesterday what about
00:03:08 00:03:12 that big peak right there i posted a
00:03:10 00:03:14 long form video that day and i made six
00:03:12 00:03:16 dollars bro that's crazy and you're
00:03:14 00:03:18 getting crazy views but just no adsense
00:03:16 00:03:20 revenue have you found any other ways to
00:03:18 00:03:23 make money i just made my own e-commerce
00:03:20 00:03:26 shop and i sell a product and i was able
00:03:23 00:03:28 to do 70 000 in gross year to date so
00:03:26 00:03:30 the year is not over but it's projected
00:03:28 00:03:32 around 100 120 000. i get to keep about
00:03:30 00:03:34 half but i also do have sponsorships so
00:03:32 00:03:36 i would say my yearly income is more
00:03:34 00:03:38 around like 80. the truth is if you're
00:03:36 00:03:40 not family friendly or you don't make
00:03:38 00:03:42 long form content social media platforms
00:03:40 00:03:43 can decide to essentially pay you
00:03:42 00:03:45 nothing but what if you do follow the
00:03:43 00:03:47 rules how many subscribers do you need
00:03:45 00:03:50 to make youtube a full-time job last
00:03:47 00:03:52 month i made 10 500 in cash how much of
00:03:50 00:03:55 that is from adsense can you pull that
00:03:52 00:03:57 up for me so it was about 5 100 in
00:03:55 00:03:59 adsense and then the rest came from
00:03:57 00:04:01 affiliate marketing for the most part
00:03:59 00:04:03 and a little bit from sponsorships at 30
00:04:01 00:04:05 000 subscribers my friend jake is making
00:04:03 00:04:07 a full-time living from youtube and as
00:04:05 00:04:09 this video progresses i'm going to tok
00:04:07 00:04:11 to larger and larger youtubers until we
00:04:09 00:04:13 tok to someone with over 1 million
00:04:11 00:04:15 subscribers so i can't even imagine the
00:04:13 00:04:17 numbers we're about to see what's like a
00:04:15 00:04:19 sponsor you've worked with a sponsor
00:04:17 00:04:21 that i work with regularly is epidemic
00:04:19 00:04:23 sound they're a music and sound effect
00:04:21 00:04:26 platform for creators all over the world
00:04:23 00:04:27 me and jake both use epidemic and funny
00:04:26 00:04:29 enough they're actually sponsoring
00:04:27 00:04:33 today's video epidemic sound has a huge
00:04:29 00:04:34 library of over 35 000 songs 90 000
00:04:33 00:04:36 sound effects and new stuff is
00:04:34 00:04:38 constantly being added every week i
00:04:36 00:04:40 personally chose the personal plan which
00:04:38 00:04:42 gives me access to sound effects like
00:04:40 00:04:45 this guy getting hit by a car
00:04:42 00:04:47 well maybe that's too dark or this puppy
00:04:45 00:04:48 barking that's not even the real mark
00:04:47 00:04:50 they are my go-to source for songs like
00:04:48 00:04:51 you heard in this video and the best
00:04:50 00:04:53 part about it is you can't get
00:04:51 00:04:55 demonetized for using their music you
00:04:53 00:04:58 can still earn income on all your videos
00:04:55 00:04:59 literally myself and a lot of my youtube
00:04:58 00:05:00 friends use epidemic sound so if you

00:05:14 00:05:18 much do you make with 300 000
00:05:16 00:05:21 subscribers i mean i got like a thousand
00:05:18 00:05:22 people on payroll so it's not much next
00:05:21 00:05:25 we're gonna tok to a fitness youtuber
00:05:22 00:05:27 with over 700 000 subscribers getting
00:05:25 00:05:29 like a million views every video i can't
00:05:27 00:05:31 imagine they're not making a bunch of
00:05:29 00:05:33 money how much money you making bro oh
00:05:31 00:05:34 okay oh damn that was bad i knew we were
00:05:33 00:05:35 gonna tok about money but you just
00:05:34 00:05:37 jumped right into it let's start with
00:05:35 00:05:39 like what are some youtube videos that
00:05:37 00:05:41 have like made a lot of money for you i
00:05:39 00:05:43 think my highest earning youtube video
00:05:41 00:05:47 is my training like cristiano for a week
00:05:43 00:05:49 and that pulled in 5.4 million views it
00:05:47 00:05:52 pulled in 29
00:05:49 00:05:53 308 dollars bro that's someone's year's
00:05:52 00:05:55 salary off of one youtube video and how
00:05:53 00:05:57 long did it take you to make it just
00:05:55 00:05:58 like a week and then maybe an extra few
00:05:57 00:06:01 days for editing personally my highest
00:05:58 00:06:04 earning video made 28
00:06:01 00:06:06 162 and i put it together in three days
00:06:04 00:06:08 the thing about youtube is the money you
00:06:06 00:06:10 make has nothing to do with time but in
00:06:08 00:06:12 the value you provide to the audience
00:06:10 00:06:14 last year i had one video i did it right
00:06:12 00:06:16 along with a 19 year old detailer it's
00:06:14 00:06:20 one of my most popular videos with three
00:06:16 00:06:22 million views and it made 17 000 off it
00:06:20 00:06:24 but just like youtube can be amazing
00:06:22 00:06:26 when videos are doing well it can pay
00:06:24 00:06:28 very bad when videos aren't i learned
00:06:26 00:06:30 this lesson the hard way everybody when
00:06:28 00:06:32 they first start youtube they start
00:06:30 00:06:35 seeing that youtube money you think it's
00:06:32 00:06:38 gonna just go pow like this he doesn't
00:06:35 00:06:40 do that man and just like any job
00:06:38 00:06:42 there's a slow season and the busy
00:06:40 00:06:44 season for youtube why do you think
00:06:42 00:06:46 vlogmas exists december is literally the
00:06:44 00:06:48 best month to upload a youtube video
00:06:46 00:06:49 with ad rates through the roof sponsors
00:06:48 00:06:51 come knocking at the door like it's
00:06:49 00:06:53 nothing and it seems like the money
00:06:51 00:06:55 train is never gonna end
00:06:53 00:06:57 until january hits you ever realize how
00:06:55 00:06:59 youtubers always seem to take breaks in
00:06:57 00:07:01 january because the pay that month is
00:06:59 00:07:03 trash at least in comparison still love
00:07:01 00:07:05 you susan but because i'm curious i want
00:07:03 00:07:08 to see what the pay looks like for a 500
00:07:05 00:07:09 and 600 000 subscriber youtube channel

00:07:12 00:07:17 total that month was 10.1 million views

00:07:19 00:07:23 in youtube adsense oh yeah starting
00:07:21 00:07:26 october to december it could go from
