How Much Money Do YouTube Reviewers Make?

If you're a YouTuber, your average revenue will vary depending on the cost per thousand (CPM) of your video ads. However, it's important to remember that many people don't just rely on their channels' ad revenue to make a living. Take for example, a YouTuber who has dozens of videos reviewing training classes and skin care products. His channel has garnered 119,000 views for his review of the Sydney Cummings training program and 41,000 views for his trial of rosacea solutions.

Recently, he reviewed Apple Fitness Plus classes after the service debuted in December and that video has more than 4,000 views. Many of these YouTube stars will also be well-known enough to market products to their fan base. Any review channel of this size will often make a lot of money from affiliate marketing, even if they are only tied to Amazon, and their comparatively low advertising payout rates of 1 to 10% for affiliates. Other types of channels, such as review channels, gaming channels, and business-related channels have it easier.

For example, if your videos review a popular type of product and you link to an affiliate sales page for that product, you might start earning money that way. If it's a review channel, for example, you could focus on reviewing products that attract ads with a higher cost per click (CPC). At the top of the top-earning list is Ryan's World (formerly Ryan ToysReview), an adorable elementary school boy who posts a new toy review video every day. For example, you can create videos with reviews of a popular product and then add links to the sales page of that affiliate product.

Review videos are some of the most searched videos on YouTube and offer a lucrative way to monetize your audience. The idea is to hire someone to do research, write a script and be a broadcaster (although Murf works for this, here is my full review of Murf) and create videos consistently with a team of people.
