How much money can I make with the Ad Revenue Share program?

The ad revenue on your videos varies and depends on different factors such as the competition for advertising in the countries your content is displayed in and how much advertisers are paying for every 1000 views of their ads.

This means the price per 1000 views for the ads will vary according to the geo/adspot/device and competition, plus how many times this ad will be displayed on your video page. This makes it nearly impossible to predict an average rate per 1000 views based on advertising.

While revenue from ads is a nice bonus, don't forget that your main focus should be getting eyes on your brand and attracting new fans to your official website where you keep 100% of the money generated.
