How Many Subs Do You Need to make $1,000 on YouTube?


– Here’s the key to making
money on YouTube, guys. The size of your audience
does not determine how much money you actually
make here on YouTube. It doesn’t, YouTube doesn’t
pay you for subscribers. But let’s say that you had
around 3,000 subscribers, how much money could you earn from that? Well here at this channel, Video Creators, when this had only 3,000 subscribers, it was generating about $10,000 a month. However, a friend of mine has
over a million subscribers and that person is literally only making a few hundred dollars a month. What I wanna do in this
video is share with you some stories about creators who have relatively small subscriber counts and are literally earning millions of dollars a year on YouTube. And I’m gonna talk to guys
about how you can do the same as long as you do what they do. That’s coming up. Hey guys, welcome to Video Creators. My name is Tim Schmoyer
and here we are all about helping you guys grow
your YouTube audience. You can spread a message
that reaches people and changes their lives. And the only way you can
make that sustainable is to earn enough money
so you can form a team and all the equipment,
everything you need to do to grow and really reach people
and change their lives. Unfortunately, there is
a common misconception among creators on YouTube, that once you get to a
certain audience size and subscriber level, that the money just somehow
just appears and it doesn’t. In fact, I work with
one creator who had over 6 million subscribers on YouTube and their channel was earning less than this channel was with, at that time, around 150,000 subscribers. But on the other hand, I know a creator who has only
a few thousand subscribers and they are earning
over $2 million a year. Yes, $2 million a year,
how did that even happen? Well, in his case, he’s
actually an insurance agent and he talks about different
insurance plans in his videos. And whenever one of his
videos leads to a sale, he gets compensated for
that leading up to over $2 million in revenue with only
a few thousand subscribers. But you’re probably
not an insurance agent. I know I’m not, so how
does that work for us? Well, the general principal is
still the same and it’s this, do not leave your monetization
strategy in YouTube’s hands. Just don’t do it, especially
if you’re banking on AdSense, like that’s a system you don’t control and it’s the best way to make the least amount of money on YouTube. And it’s stressful, too,
going from month to month trying to keep your views up because if your next videos
don’t perform as well, then you’re gonna earn
less the next month. It’s just not the kinda life I wanna live. Let’s do some simple math
that I think that you’ll agree that there’s a much better way to do this. Let’s just assume maybe you make $2 per 1,000 views through AdSense. Some channels make a lot more,
some channels do a lot less, but for the sake for our example, we’ll just say $2 per 1,000 views. And let’s say that you have a $30 product that you’d like to sell. And each time you pitch that product naturally as a part of your content, you convert about 1% of
your audience into a sale. 1% of 1,000 views is 10 sales
at 10 sales at $30 each, that’s $300 for 1,000 views
for the same 1,000 views that YouTube would
otherwise pay you $2 for. And actually, that is
my math for my $30 ebook called 30 Days to a
Better YouTube Channel, which you can find a link down below if you’re interested in checking it out. If you do that kinda math on your channel, you can earn a full
time income much sooner, much more quickly than you could if you’re just doing AdSense
and brand deals alone because now we’re actually
taking about the potential to do over a thousand dollars per video if you have a few thousand engaged, loyal fans there on your channel. This isn’t just something
that works on my channel, this can absolutely work for you, too. In fact, just a few weeks ago, I got an email from Jenny
Champion who wrote and said this. “Hi Tim, I’m Jenny. “I just had to message you! “I finally started making videos “and on my third one, “I sold a $99 diet-plan
with only 143 views. “I instantly thought of you “and your 1% conversion on your $30 ebook “when you first started. “This is amazing!” Yes and that’s exactly how this works. Here she is with only three videos and 143 views and she already made $99. With this type of approach, you don’t even need to wait for YouTube to enable monetization on your channel. You can just dive in and start making money on
your channel right away because you have not only a plan to deliver good value to your audience, but you also have a plan of how to capture good value from your audience. That could be maybe with
channel memberships, with Patreon, digital products, maybe you’re gonna sell some
kind of online community or events and meetups or
maybe an online course or something else. You need to know exactly what value you’re providing through your channel. You need to know exactly who wants that value that you’re providing and then you need to sell 10X that value in a format people are willing to pay for just by naturally integrating
that into your content. And that really seems to be the skill that a lot of creators
kinda get nervous about. It’s like I don’t wanna sell, I don’t wanna feel sleazy or too pushy or I don’t want like, you know, I get it. We’re gonna talk more about
that in future videos, but let me maybe give
you an example right now maybe what that could look like. I have a 50 minute training
here on YouTube called How to 150X Your YouTube
Income With a Business Plan and it is a step by step
process you need to follow in order to get the kinda earnings that some of these other
creators are making on YouTube. So, to answer our question,
how many subscribers you need in order to make $1,000
a month on YouTube? Well, not very many. In fact, I think you could do it with less than 1,000 subscribers with a business plan
wrapped around your content. So click this video and I’ll see you guys
over in the next one.

  1. Mini-testimonial. A few weeks ago, I launched my first paid course (intro price of $49.00). I did only little 10 second shoutouts at the very end of a few videos and I already sold 3 courses (I haven't even sent an email about it yet to my list). It took about 2000 views (and again the shoutouts were at the very end) to get 3 sales. In terms of adsense, that would only have made me about $4. I'm just getting started but I can already see the potential.

  2. You just explained how to use youtube to sell a product other than your videos, not how to make more money making youtube videos.

  3. I guess i first need to break the wall of 60 subs. Really do my best, but right now it looks like my way on youtube is dead ended. because it looks like i need to sell my bike in a few weeks…

  4. This strategy works in a veryyyyyyyyy few scenarios, you need to take a lot of factor into account, don't generalise this bullshit !!!

  5. Hi, guys, I am a gamer who has just started a gaming channel and could do with some support so if you like what you see maybe please drop me a sub . Thank you and God bless. THE JOE COBRA YOUTUBE CHANNEL
