How much does a YouTuber earn?

These questions are asked a lot, so we decided to answer them.

But in a different way than any other website or channel that may share this information with you.

We studied and analyzed the profits of 149 different YouTube channels in various fields to learn more about the amount of profit.

Therefore, I promise that at the end of the topic, you will get a bird’s-eye view of what you can get if you decide to create a YouTube channel and profit from it.

All channel profits mentioned here are random samples chosen to represent each field

Wrong information about YouTube profits 

There is a wrong image that is always presented to followers in most videos that talk about this topic.

In the majority of the channels that we analyzed and determined their profits (certainly based on their videos), all methods of profit from YouTube to advertisements only.


There are actually many other sources of income, which rarely any YouTuber mentions his profits from, such as: 

  • Affiliate marketing 
  • Sponsored ads 
  • Paid subscriptions 
  • Donations (collected by some, especially gamers)
  • And others

All of these methods can make profits many times greater than what you get through video ads.

Another false piece of information is that content makers on YouTube profit from the number of subscriptions to the channel , but this is not true at all.

The number of subscribers is not directly profitable, but it helps in obtaining a lot of views and thus a lot of profits from advertisements or other methods.

Let’s get rid of this…

I know you want to know their profits from views.

This will become the focus of the conversation now.

So let’s first talk about…

Why does YouTube give them profits? 

  • YouTube is Google’s video network.
  • Google has its own advertising network called Google Ads .
  • Brand owners want to advertise their products, so they go to Google Ads
  • Google places ads on the content creator’s videos after he meets the conditions for the AdSense program .
  •  When people watch the videos of the content creator, YouTube gets a percentage and the YouTuber gets a percentage.

Now let’s move quickly to…

How much do they earn from YouTube? 

After studying and analyzing these channels, I discovered many factors that greatly affect the amount of profit.

These factors may make some people achieve $0.5 / 1000 views, others achieve $10 / 1000 views, and others achieve $26 / 1000 views 😲😳😲.

Don’t worry, I will put all these factors for you at the end of the topic.

But now part is statistics.

I will divide this part according to specialization, and in each part I will put the profits of some channels and tell you the average profits for each category (e-commerce – marketing – entertainment content – cooking content – and so on). 

The purpose of the breakdown is to help you know the average amount you can earn if you decide to start in this specialty.


The last channel on the list reached $11,400 in profits from one video (Arabic content).

So stay until the end of the topic because after that I will show you how to increase your profits

Let’s start now with…

YouTube channel profits (foreign content)

Surely you already know that the profits of foreign content are much greater than Arabic content.
This is mainly due to the presence of a foreign audience.
 Here you will find the earnings of the top 10 foreign YouTubers in 2020, according to the Cshlady

Column B, red:  number of subscribers to the channel
Green column:  estimated annual profits for the channel
The black column: the profits of one video on the channel

How much do they earn from YouTube for women’s and lifestyle content? 

Since many girls and women tend to create their own channels, perhaps we should start with them.

After analyzing dozens of channels in this specialty, we chose 4 examples for you.


1- Rawan Darwish Channel 
  •  She is considered one of the most famous Egyptian YouTubers in this field specifically.
  • The channel has more than 160 thousand subscribers.
  • The main content in the channel is directed directly to girls.
  • She made a group of videos about making money from the Internet  


Now to know the profits, observe this picture >>


Win Rawan Darwish's channel



If you are good at mathematics, you will know that from the image, the profit for 1000 views is 1.26 $


If we now look at this following picture >>>


You will now notice that the channel’s CPM is ( $2.84/1000 views ).

Through a very simple reverse process, we can find out the number of views of ads.


  • If $2.84 = 1000 views 
  • How many views do you get $93.25????!

Number of actual ad views = (93.25 * 1000) divided / 2.84

It will become clear to us that the number of views for the videos containing ads was not 73 thousand views as shown in the picture above.


32,834 views generated $93. 

Thus, every time you listen to a video, you can apply this method to know the number of actual views.

There are many reasons why the number of ad views is lower than the number of video views.

 The most important of these reasons are:

  • Some videos may not be ready for profit (copyright)
  • Some YouTubers add one or more videos per month without ads. If these videos get views, they increase the channel’s views but do not affect profits.

How much do they earn from YouTube for technical content? 

Technical content is one of the types of content that enjoys good popularity on the Internet, whether in blogs or YouTube channels.
We will now start with the small channels and then graduate to the channels with the largest number of subscribers.
11- Smile1cute
It is one of the small channels in the technical field, but despite that, it provides very good content.
Alia, the owner of the channel, is considered one of the most hardworking people who provides unique information, so I advise you to enter her channel and follow her.
  • The channel has about 6,000 subscribers so far 
  • 95% of the content is technical, explaining programs and how to work on them.
Now it’s time for profits >>>>>
The channel’s profits are not large due to the small number of views, but what matters to us is the CPM
($1.75/1000 views) which is a good rate for technical content.



12- Engineer Academy Channel 
Currently, the channel is considered one of the medium channels in terms of the number of subscribers (about 48 thousand subscribers), but when the earnings video was created, the total number of subscribers was 14 thousand subscribers.
Engineer Ahmed Qutb pointed out in the video (with statistics) that he achieves daily visits reaching a maximum of 5,000, and the profits for 4 consecutive months were as follows: 
  • 117.5 $ 
  • 91.37 $ 
  • 95 $
  • 117.66 $ 
If we now calculate the number of monthly views of the channel (5000 * 30 days) = 150 thousand monthly views.
So the channel’s CPM = 105 (average profits) / 150 ( about $0.70 / 1000 views  )
13- YouTube Network – Networks tube

It was supposed to start with these profits in order to motivate you to read the topic to the end
I decided to make it for those who will complete this part, and from it I also moved on to the most important part about…

The most important factors that increase YouTube profits 

Through our study of all these channels, in addition to many foreign channels, we noticed common factors in the videos with the most profits.
Some of these factors you already know and others you may not have heard about. In short, they are: 
  • Video duration : We noticed that in the highest CPM videos, they are often longer than 15 minutes.
  • Average viewing duration: It is very intuitive that the longer a person listens, the more advertisements will appear to him and, consequently, more profits, so always make sure to make your videos interesting.
  • Visitor countries:  This appears very clearly in foreign content due to the large number of advertisers in it.
  • Video field: You have certainly already noticed that e-commerce and profit content is one of the highest contents in terms of profits, unlike, for example, technical content that is lower in terms of profits.
  • Number of ads on the video: The more ads you add, the more likely those ads will appear, and thus your profits increase.
Now let us move to another important part that some people are also wondering about, and perhaps you are wondering too, which is…

Is there a website to find out the profits of YouTube channels? 

You have surely heard of many sites through which you can place the link to the channel and calculate the monthly or annual profits for each channel.
There is no site, no matter how accurate, that can calculate the profits of YouTube channels, except for only one site, which is (AdSense), which is actually responsible for the profits and distributes them.
All of these widespread sites give you an approximate view (it may be completely different from what the channel actually achieves).
 If you want to try any of them, these are the most popular sites: 
A final overview of YouTube profits 
As you learned from the profits of all of these channels above, the majority of content makers on YouTube earn between $0.5 and $10/1000 views on Arabic content.
Some of the foreign content creators we analyzed had a CPM of $26 per 1,000 views.
If we conclude from this the following…
  • YouTube is one of the best ways to make money online , but it requires a lot of effort.
  • The best type of content is content that you are an expert in, so know your passion and be creative with it.
  • In order to start earning money from YouTube, there are some conditions that your channel must fulfill in the beginning, which are (4000 hours of viewing your videos in addition to at least 1000 subscribers). 
  • Targeting foreign countries, or at least Arabs living in those countries, is the solution to increasing YouTube profits per 1,000 views.
Now tell us…
Will you create your channel and start submitting content on YouTube?
 Or were these profits not what I expected!!!!
