how much money do youtubers really make
brands, adsense, merch, concerts, tour, patreon, books … there is so much value in online video, and we had a hard time converting dollars effectively . Many YouTubers can support themselves, some even illustrate, but most can only supplement their other projects and jobs with their YouTube-related revenue. It may be that creators will have to spend more in subscription style content for higher budget projects.
But SciShow and Crash Course are secured here on the YouTube platform. Both were designed with these systems in mind and found a path to sustainability through advertisers and our patreon patrons
