    The main ones i watch are Shabazz, Advanced knife bro, cutlery lover, sometimes Birdshot, slicey dicey, epicsnugglebunny and sometimes Doctor frunkey.

    Absolutely dislike Skelton, Nutnfancy, and Apostlep.

    Indeed, based on views sir! 1 of my co workers videos got over 516k views last month alone. Which is why the revenue was as much as it was.

    I also never said sub count would be a direct correlation ...but generally you could bet on a youtuber with more subs in general is going to get more views more consistently (as long as their active)...as they have a bigger following.

    I can also confirm the check amount of $1,350 as I saw it was my own eyes, and I really dont have any reason to lie lol

    Thanks Mo2 for that listing. Nice job. Interesting list of characters at that.

    I've only seen a couple of his videos but Nero knives seems like he takes his reviews seriously. And I've only seen a handful of the channels you mention but I'll have to check more of them out.

    Only 75% of the channels? Where do you find all the time for that? (my main complaint with these review is how long they all seem to take, but I guess that's what the playback speed button is for).

    Right on!

    No, I get that. I wasn't calling you a liar or anything, more elaborating on it that you can't really go by just one metric. 9000 subs and 500k+ views is really impressive and a bit weird. Care to share the channel? I'm curious what kind of videos/market his audience is. Almost 1500 bucks is nothing to sneeze at for sure, especially if you can manage that part time with a YT channel. It's definitely possible to make money with it, but it depends on audience, reach, views, types of ads and a couple of factors. (Consistency is also a big key and staying true to a certain genre and not jumping all over the place with content.)

    I generate between $40 -50 dollars a month with ad revenue. Once upon a time I had some random spinner video get 5 million views, that generated $5k. So $1k per million views.

    Certain categories on YouTube have much higher payouts because of the companies that pay YouTube for ads. I think cooking, makeup and children's toys are some of the better ones.

    Knife and gun channels are possibly the lowest payouts, assuming they don't demonitize all your vids anyway. Which is why so many set up Patreon accounts.

    Even if you borrow every knife you use for a video, you can expect to spend between $500-$1000 on shipping costs per year.

    So put on make up and cook some children toys! Triple multiplier! Right? RIGHT? :p:D Did you look into maybe making new "surprise" videos, maybe not necessarily live to keep it easy, where you pick a random person to send you a knife you wouldn't buy/check out and you give some spontaneous thoughts like you did with BHQ, I know they are a bit far away these days to just swing by, but it could be fun to do a "I review/check out viewer knives" Maybe every other week or once a month?
