If we take in consideration the average YouTube pay rate that’s $0.005 per view, a YouTuber can make around $5 per 1,000 views. For an example, if your channel is getting about 100,000 views per month, you will get around $500 per month of income. Scaling it to 1,000,000 (million) views per month, you would get $5000 per month. A very decent income, am I right?
