How to Earn Money from YouTube Views

On a forum I stumbled upon an analysis asked a simple question. How much can I make from YouTube Videos?
Some videos achieve 25,000-100,0 00 views while others have close to 300,000 subscribers. Unless you are a Kardashian, a famous musician, comic or celebrity the obvious answer is not much.
The simple truth is very few people earn any decent income from the business. You need a huge amount of traffic and subscribers to make any decent money.
Other challenges include acquiring proper video equipment, lighting, stage management, scripts and time.
Don’t get discouraged because some average Joe's are also cashing in big. Here is how to actually make money from YouTube.
