The democratization of the internet has allowed you to take your own initiative and pursue your passion without having to depend on companies or bosses to "approve" what you are creating. In this new attention economy, there is more and more competition in the creation of content and it is difficult for creatives to obtain the necessary resources to pursue their passion full time.
How much money can YouTubers make?
According to the study, conducted by Mathias Bärtl, a professor at Offenburg University of Applied Sciences in Germany, only 3.5% of people attempting to become YouTube stars make enough money to break above the poverty line in the United States. The poverty line is currently set at $12,140 per year for a single person in the US. This is based on the assumption that YouTube charges $1 per 1,000 views for an average YouTuber. The top 3% of creators, those with more than 1.4 million views, may only earn around $16,800 per year.
Has it become harder for new creators to achieve success on YouTube?
The study found that it has become harder for new creators to achieve success on YouTube as the platform adds 300 hours of video every minute and the biggest stars become more successful. The median views per video on YouTube plummeted to 89 in 2016, compared to 10,262 a decade earlier. At the same time, the top 3% of channels received 64% of all views in 2006, compared to 90% in 2016. This means that it is increasingly difficult for new creators to get noticed and build a following on the platform.
What is YouTube doing to help creators make more money?
A YouTube spokesperson stated that the company is working to help creators make more money, and that the number of channels earning more than $100,000 per year has increased by 40% year over year. Despite this, the vast majority of creators on YouTube still struggle to make a living from their content.
