MKBHD Salary & Annual Earnings in 2018

At the moment, Marques gets around 25 million monthly views on his videos. The number is growing and is likely to continue doing so, but that’s the case so far. At those numbers, he is estimated to make somewhere between $8,000 and $127,000 from YouTube’s ad program. Per month, of course.
Most YouTubers would lean towards the lower bracket for various reasons, but Brownlee is probably closer to the upper one. He stated it himself that he wasn’t affected by the YouTube ‘apocalypse’, which cut the earnings of most YouTubers by a significant amount. This is thanks to his content, which is always family-friendly and covers a niche that is very much in-demand on the site (and thus, with advertisers).

This is a hard question to answer because most of MKBHD’s videos are getting lots of daily views. So to get an accurate estimate would be very hard. However, there is a measurement that we can use. At the moment, Marques’ videos have a total of 947,417,665 views combined, and there are 1027 of them. After some quick math, we can see that, on average, he gets just under 1 million views per video. This means that he makes around $2,000 per video.
