I want to share with you how much Youtube paid me for a video that has 150K views.
For those of you that are curious about monetization on YouTube, I’m going to show you the behind the scenes segment and also my other YouTube channel.
Right now, you’re at the Backstage Income website, and on my Backstage Income YouTube Channel at this time of recording has about 4K subscribers, and the views are not enormous.
I have another channel about investing – Traders Fly.
This channel, at the moment, has about 132K subscribers. These two channels are in two different spaces. And because they’re in two different spaces, the payment and the payouts going to be different.
Let’s say as something regarding business YouTube may payout something like $10 CPM.
Whereas in the investing space and trading, you might get a little bit more. Instead of $10 CPM, you might be getting something like $16 CPM. You have this different range.
Let’s say you’re doing paper crafts or you’re doing anything paper cards related. You might only get $3 CPM. It’s essential to realize and recognize that if you’re starting a YouTube channel, you need to think about things like a business.
And that’s ultimately the big picture concept that I want to share with you in this video.
Profit from my Video that has 150K Views
If you look at my video over here the Traders Fly channel, you can see there are 132K subscribers at the moment. And this video had 151K views since almost the beginning of 2017.
My Backstage Income channel has a handful of subscribers. Not anything big compared to the other channel.
When you look behind the scenes, this is how it looks.
This is the video: What is a stock?
That’s the thumbnail when you look at the total lifetime view since uploaded this video made a $1,623. Pretty good result with a 12-minute video that we go in on paper and talk about what it is stock and how you profit.
If you can do these types of videos that get some action but also are in the industry space that is you could say profitable or generate a high CPM, then you can make quite a bit of cash from those types of videos.
I will say not every video is going to turn out to be like that. If you start taking a look at some other videos that I have, they’re not as good. Here are a couple of other videos when I search for what is a stock.
You could see here’s another one that I made way back when from 2012, this one has many more views, and we could talk about that one another day.
The revenue that you’re driving from these starts to get bigger exponentially. I have two videos in probably the top 10 or 12 that rank me for what is the stock. And you could keep making these same videos to keep evolving them and making them better.
That’s what I want you to think about as you look to your channel and growing things and continuing to evolve things. Every single one of these videos, they’re going to continue to grow and evolve for you in the future.
Making Money from Courses & Books
But remember, it’s not just about making money from the video itself. It’s about creating a business. And if you look at some of the courses here that I have, there are tons of courses there beyond making money off of youtube.

These courses generate money when people buy a product or service. And the same thing with some of the books here that I have as well.
Think beyond just YouTube if you’re starting a YouTube channel. It’s about creating a business, a business plan around YouTube.
