The channel’s content is generally all about teaching anyone how to fix their car with easy to follow, step-by-step “how to” style videos. These videos go into detail so beginners can follow along. There are also plenty of “top tips” in each video so even experts can learn something new. The goal is for the viewer to save money, know the job is getting done properly, and feel great after they fix their own car.
How Much Money Does ChrisFix Earn On YouTube?
The channel has over 1.7 million subscribers as of early 2017 growing by 2,700 new subs daily and has accumulated over 250 million views so far. New videos are uploaded every week onto the platform. It is able to get an average of 430,000 views per day from various sources and this should generate an estimated revenue of around $650 per day ($240,000 a year) from the ads that run on the videos.
YouTubers get paid between $2 – $5 per 1000 monetized views after YouTube takes its cut. Monetized views range from 40% – 60% of the total views. All these are influenced by different factors like device played on, location of the viewer, ad inventory, season, topic, how many ads have been played on a video, ad watch time, ad engagement etc. to come up with the figure to be paid out.
Chris gets extra income through the selling of merchandise such as key chains, bumper stickers, hats etc. He also gets money from affiliate sales (commissions earned from the sale of a product) through the product links he posts in the video description.
