Average Top Youtube Channel Earns $276,000 Per Year [Infographic]


Youtube allows thousands of people to make money every year, but just how much money? According to a new infographic, the average top 1000 Youtube channel nets $23,000 each month which comes out to $276,000 per year. That’s a pretty nice six figure income from making videos.

The infographic also dives into even more detail when it comes to views, subscribers, social interactions and more. For example, out of the top 1000 Youtube channels, they upload 30,000 videos each month combined which generate 11.3 Billion views across a total 462 Million subscribers.

Not surprisingly, the top category is music which accounts for 25% of the top 1000 channels with gaming a close second, followed by comedy and entertainment.

What we also see is just how big of an impact that having a social media presence outside of Youtube has on a channel’s success. Over time, large followings add up to more views when means more ad revenue.

Check out the infographic below and see just how big the top 1000 Youtube channels are. Chances are, you even watch a few of them.
