How does MrBeast make his money?

MrBeast’s income from YouTube is based on the amount of views he is receiving on a daily basis. His channel has more than 17 million subscribers and it has earned more than 2.5 billion views thus far.

The daily views are around 8.5 million, which earns MrBeast about $30,000 per day due to the ads that run during the videos.

The way YouTube payments work is the video poster can make anywhere from $2-$5 per 1,000 monetized views once YouTube takes its cut.

Monetized views are usually between 40%-60% of the total amount of views. Influences to these amounts include viewer location, device watched on, ad inventory, how many ads skips, how many ads on a video, ad engagement, and other factors.

Ad view costs are derived by an auction between advertisers based on the number of views. They must bid a $0.01 minimum per view.

Another program involved in ad sales is Google Preferred. With this program, the more wealthy brands can aim to get ads on the top 5% most popular videos. They are willing to pay higher ad rates.

YouTube Red viewers also help video hosts get paid more because they are opting to watch videos without ads while paying a monthly fee. In these cases, the YouTuber is paid by the amount of time someone spends on their video.

The longer the video is watched, the more money that is earned.

MrBeast gets additional income from video sponsors who wound up paying tens of thousands to him. He has promoted products such as CSGO, Quidd, Tik Tok, Lotto, and more.

Even though MrBeast has a strong presence now, he started from very humble beginnings. He remembers making a dollar a day on his channel.

He didn’t even have a microphone when he started out. Back then his strategy was to reinvest every check he received from YouTube back into his streaming business.

As his monthly income increased, so did the amount of money he worked with on his videos for the month.

Even though he gives a lot of his money away, it’s not completely out of pocket for him. His channel earns him so much money now that he doesn’t feel depleted by giving away his sponsorship cash from brand deals.

MrBeast’s videos usually showcase big stunts. He commonly uploads his gaming experiences and makes videos on giving thousands of dollars to Twitch streamers, several of these videos are now sponsored.

In the past he would donate without a sponsor. In January 2017 MrBeast made a full day video of himself counting to 100,000. It took him 40 hours, but he sped up some parts to keep it less than 24 hours.

It turns out he missed various numbers (50,282, 50,295, 81,933, and 99,913) and he triple counted 24,219.

A month later there was a second video created where he counted to 200,000 (Road to a Mil) but then he had to speed that one up as well because the fifty-five hours it took to do the counting surpassed the upload limit on YouTube.

MrBeast has also attempted to break glass with 100 megaphones, watched paint dry for an hour, as well as unsuccessfully tried to spin a fidget spinner for a full day.

Favorite Quotes from MrBeast

“If you want the special secret, if you want to know where it all came from – my parents aren’t that rich, I’m only 20 years old, every dollar I’ve ever made came from YouTube, and YouTube just pays better than you think.”

“There’s a big misconception that controversy and negativity is the only way to get clicks, because that’s how it is in the media, for the most part, they don’t want good stories, they just want bad things, but I think on YouTube, it’s different, and people just haven’t realized it: positivity is just as clickbait as negativity.”
