How Much Does YouTube Pay for 1000 Views?

Keynote

After joining the YouTube Partner Program, you start earning money from ad views. According to your RPM, it is possible to earn $10- $30 for 1000 ad views.

Ad revenue is the primary way people make money on YouTube. To earn money this way, you must meet certain eligibility criteria like having a minimum of 500 subscribers and 3000 watch hours. When you do, each ad view on your video after monetization counts toward your overall income. As a YouTuber, it’s smart thinking to want to know how much YouTube will pay when you get up to 1000 views. I get it. It gives you something to look forward to or even helps you plan better.

Not to worry, you’ll find the answers to your question, “How much does YouTube pay for 1000 views?” in this post.

How Much Does YouTube Pay for 1000 Views?

Getting thousands of video views is great. It’s a sign that people are discovering your video and possibly find it useful. However, the number of video views you get does not directly translate to more earnings. In fact, you don’t get paid for video views on YouTube. Instead, YouTube only pays creators based on ad views.

Are you wondering what the difference is? Keep reading, I’ll explain in the sections that follow.

How Much Does YouTube Pay for 1000 Ad Views?

When you cross the YouTube eligibility threshold and turn on monetization for your videos, you can start expecting money calculated by the number of ad views you get.

A high video view count is impressive. It shows that more people are watching your content, and of course, it increases the chances of those people seeing the ads displayed on your videos. But what truly matters towards monetization are ad views.

Now let’s see how much you get for 1K, 5K, 10K, and 50K ad views.

1K Ad Views

From my findings, a YouTuber earns an average of $.018 per ad view. Some sources gave a stretch; between $.01 to $.03 which translates to $10 to $30 per 1000 ad views. This is also called RPM (revenue per mile). To calculate your revenue, use our Money Calculator tool.

RPM is the amount you get per 1K ad views after YouTube takes its cut. It varies across various niches because the CPM (cost per mille) also varies. CPM is the amount advertisers pay for 1K ad views.

We’ll talk about factors that influence your earnings later. For now, take this as a simple explanation of why we have a range for how much YouTube pays for 1K ad views rather than a specific figure.

5K Ad Views

With an average RPM of $10 to $30, as I mentioned above, you can expect around $50 to $300 for 5K ad views. However, the RPM I stated above is an estimate and it fluctuates. So, what we have here for 5K ad views might not correspond with what you get at the end of the day. For instance, I also found some sources that gave an estimate of $15 to $100 for 5K ad views based on their experience.

10K Ad Views

Still going by the $10 to $30 RPM, you can get between $100 to $300 for 10K ad views. Again, this is not fixed for every creator. Some YouTubers may earn lower or above the average depending on their CPM, which is also influenced by several factors.

50K Ad Views

If you’re getting up to 50K ad views, YouTube can pay you up to $1000. Creators with a lower CPM may earn around $150 for the same number of ad views.

What Are the Factors Affecting Your Income for 1K Views?

I’ve been talking about factors that influence your YouTube earnings. It’s time to discuss these factors so that you can fully understand why your earnings can fall anywhere (or even outside) the range we talked about for specific numbers of ad views.

1.    Audience

Firstly, the location of your audience matters. If you have viewers in countries with large economies like the U.S., advertisers pay more to reach that audience because of their higher purchasing power.

Secondly, other demographic information like the age, gender, and interest of your audience play a role in determining your YouTube payout for 1K ad views. Advertisers whose target audience aligns with your audience may pay more to reach your viewers.

2.    Niche

Your niche or YouTube category also plays a major role in your earnings for 1k ad views. Some niches like health, educational content, personal finance, and makeup have a higher CPM.

Another thing you should note is that CPM varies per video. You may create many videos in the same niche and notice that a particular style of video has a higher CPM than others. With this information, you can make your content more similar to the thriving video to maximize your earnings.

3.    Type of Ads

There are different types of ads on YouTube that can be displayed on your video, usually with varying CPM rates. For example, non-skippable ads often have higher CPM rates than skippable ads. So, based on the ad formats available, you’ll notice fluctuations in your CPM, which affects your net payout.

How Much Does YouTube Pay for 1000 Views – Examples

Let’s briefly discuss some YouTube channels and creators with at least 1k views and their projected earnings. It’s important to state that all earnings we discuss here are averages. Sometimes, the actual earnings can be less or more than the average we share here.

The purpose of this section is to give you an idea of YouTube earnings based on real creators so that you can see how it fluctuates due to certain factors we discussed above:

1.    Morgan Green

Morgan Green is a YouTuber whose monthly earnings are estimated at $75 to $1.2k (at a CPM rate of $0.25 to $4.00). Her channel has accrued over 8 million video views, with her daily views averaging almost 10k views daily. But even with that number of daily views, her daily earnings average $2 to $40.

This goes to show that video views have little or no effect on your earnings. It’s the ad views that count.

2.    Alex Wehrley

The former beauty pageant titleholder, Alex Wehrley, has created a space for herself on YouTube where she dishes out comedic content revolving around Midwest living and homeownership. She currently has 25.3k subscribers and over 4.9 million video views. Her daily averages for video views count and expected earnings are 2487 views and $0.62 to $10 respectively.

3.    Cathrin Manning

Cathrin is another upcoming YouTuber with a total of over 25 million video views. Daily, she gets an average of 9410 views and her estimated earnings are between $2 to $38 daily, using a CPM of $0.25 to $4.00.
