YouTube Stardom Business
If you become popular on YouTube you can earn a lot of money. Directly from YouTube if you’re really big, but also from side contracts YouTube stardom should fetch you. When you have a list of people who are trusting you, following you, or admiring you, you are able to sell them. The difficult part is standing out.
YouTube videos can be big business for top independent content creators. These are the YouTube stars who have huge online fanbases — even though most people have never heard of them.
A range of earnings estimates for each channel was provided by YouTube analytics company SocialBlade. Its estimates are placed within upper and lower limits, based on their daily views multiplied by a low cost-per-thousand impression advertising (CPM) rate of $US0.60 and a high rate of $US5. The range is wide to account for differences in the type of ad (including kinds of banner ads and pre-roll) and brand value. These estimates also assume that every video is monetized, which is not always the case.
PewDiePie, the biggest YouTube star with over 46 million subscribers? His journey to stardom started in his room with a humble webcam and simple let’s play video, which he does to this day.
Even though the let’s play market might be a bit too saturated now, there are still vast, unexplored seas filled with opportunities for anyone who dares to go after them.
