How to calculate YouTube income?

According to Upwork, To determine what you will earn based on a particular YouTube video, you will need to know your revenue per 1,000 impressions, or RPM, as well as how many views your video has received. With this information, the calculator will multiply your RPM by the number of views, and then divide that figure by 1,000.

Here’s another simple online tool that calculates an estimate of how much money you can earn from your YouTube channel.

  • Drag the sliders to choose your numbers:
  • Input the number of daily views (for a single video or a YouTube channel)
  • Choose the expected range for the CPM (cost per thousand views)
