The video blogging culture seems to be at its peak, and these kids are making a serious name for themselves on YouTube. The key to YouTube popularity is that any video these kids upload will get shared and amass record views.
Most of the income for YouTube stars is generated from advertisements, sponsored videos, and affiliate products. There are different views and opinions about the average CPM for YouTube videos, but I went with $3 CPM to estimate how much these little entrepreneurs are earning.
Here is a little math:
1000 video views = $3 to $6
10,000 views = $30 to $60
100,000 views = $300 to $600
1 million views = $3000 to $6000
These kids hundreds of thousands of views per month, so you can imagine what the income is for each of these video empire entrepreneurs.
