OpenSlate, which describes its services as delivering “actionable information about the value of online video to advertisers,” recently put together an infographic analyzing the top 1,000 YouTube channels.
Some of the findings are mind-blowing, like the fact that over one million YouTubers run ads on their content. To put it another way, YouTube writes checks to more than one million people monthly. That’s more than the U.S. television industry employs.
The highest-performing 1,000 make an cool six figures a year. According to OpenSlate, the average net profit for the top 1,000 channels is $23,000 a month for an average annual payout of $276,000.
Laut OpenSlate haben die Top1000 YouTube-Channels in den letzten 30 Tagen 87 Millionen Interaktionen (Kommentare, Ratings, etc.) hervorgerufen.
