You can create videos about anything to make money on YouTube,
For example; Reviews, Technology, Funny and the list goes on.
Generally, Informative and educational content videos generate high revenue from AdSense.
And instead of it,
They also have good conversion rate in Affiliate programs like Amazon Associate, Flipkart Affiliate, Clickbank Affiliate, Snapdeals Affiliate, Webhosting Affiliate and the list goes on with unlimited options.
But, while your video content is related to non-educational, funny and something else,
Then your primary source of income would be only AdSense,
Which also doesn’t generate higher revenue until you have a large audience or lots of views.
Before continue to the main topic which is reaction videos,
Let me explain my words on the above two paragraphs with examples to make you better understand.
So, you can choose your niche and generate more revenue from your YouTube videos.
Why Informative and educational content videos generate high revenue?
Keep in mind, Your AdSense income comes directly from Advertisers,
Not the Google AdSense company.
Company doesn’t pay you,
They just share some amount of revenue which comes from their Advertisers.
- For displaying ads with AdSense for content, publishers receive 68% of the revenue recognized by Google in connection with the service.
- For AdSense for search, publishers receive 51% of the revenue recognized by Google.
These percentages are consistent, regardless of a publisher’s geographic location, and are not in any way averaged between publishers. [Source Information]
Advertisers uses Google Adwords platform to show ads on Google search page and AdSense publishers blog & videos.
In AdSense, There is three main term you need to know before getting started with it; the first one is CPC ( Cost Per Click ), the other one is RPM ( Revenue for Mile ) and the next one is CTR ( Click-through rate ) which all decide your final income from AdSense.
- Pay-per-click (PPC), also known as cost per click (CPC), is an internet advertising model used to direct traffic to websites, in which an advertiser pays a publisher (typically a website owner or a network of websites) when the ad is clicked.
- RPM ( Revenue for Mile ) which means, Revenue Per 1000 impressions. calculated by dividing your estimated earnings by the number of page views you received, then multiplying by 1000. For example, if you earned an estimated $0.15 from 25 page views, then your page RPM would equal ($0.15 / 25) * 1000, or $6.00.
- CTR ( Click-through rate ) is the ratio of users who click on a specific link to the number of total users who view a page, email, or advertisement. It is commonly used to measure the success of an online advertising campaign for a particular website as well as the effectiveness of email campaigns.
As I said, Your AdSense income comes directly from Advertisers.
And, If they are paying for something then they may get something in return eg. product sales and conversion etc.
Keep in mind, Nobody gives you money for free.
Now you may have question that how much they pay?
Well, It all depends on their needs and requirements.
They may pay $0.25 to $80 per click or more or $0.10 to $6 per thousand impressions or more.
Remember above these are the examples, not the exact value to make you better understand.
And, they may vary from conditions to conditions.
AdSense Earning Calculations for Informative and educational content videos
According to my survey,
You can get $1 to $86 or more per click and $1 to $6 or more per thousand impressions,
If you have informative or educational content videos.
Let me explain with an example;
I am assuming you have Mobile reviews content, CPC is $3, RPM is $5, Page CTR (Click through rate) of 10% and, you also get 1 Lac views.
So, your earning would be…
1st AdSense Earning = CPC * CTR (1,00,000*10/100) 1st AdSense Earning = 3 * 10,000 1st AdSense Earning = 30,000
That means, You will make $30,000 if you have 1 Lac views on your YouTube videos with CPC is $3 and Page CTR (Click through rate) is 10%.
But, this is not your final AdSense earning.
2nd AdSense Earning = RPM * (Views/ 1000) 2nd AdSense Earning = 5 * (1,00,000/1000) 2nd AdSense Earning = 5 * 100 2nd AdSense Earning = 500
That means you will make $500 if you have 1 Lac views on your YouTube videos with RPM is $5.
But, this is also not your final AdSense earning.
So, now let’s calculate your final AdSense earnings.
Final AdSense Earning = 1st AdSense Earning + 2nd AdSense Earning Final AdSense Earning = $30,000 + $500 Final AdSense Earning = $35,000
So your final AdSense earning would be $35,000, if you have 1 Lac views on your YouTube videos with CPC is $3, RPM is $5 and Page CTR (Click through rate) is 10%.
Also remember, these all are the assumptions values to make you better understand.
These values may vary conditions to conditions.
Affiliate Earning Calculations for Informative and educational content videos
Off course you can also earn extra income from your YouTube videos if you informative and educational content videos,
By simply putting your affiliate links on the videos descriptions.
Let me explain with an existing example which i have taken in AdSense earning,
Assuming you have mobile reviews contents and using Amazon associate program.
Generally, If someone purchase anything from Amazon with your affiliate link then you get 1% to 15% of that product.
The percentage depends on the product categories.
And In our case, If you have mobile-related content then you will get 10% to 15% as Amazon mentioned in their official page.
I am also assuming that you get 1 Lac views on your videos, 10% commission rate, 30% of people converted into sales and the mobile product amount is $15,000.
So, your Amazon affiliate earning would be…
Affiliate Earning = 10% commission of product * (1,00,000*30/100) Affiliate Earning = 1,500 * 30,000 Affiliate Earning = 4,50,00,000
So your final affiliate earning would be $4,50,00,000; If you have 1 Lac views on your videos, 10% commission rate, 30% of people converted into sales and the mobile product amount is $15,000.
Keep in mind, these are the assumptions values to make you better understand.
The product commission rates may different in different products and affiliate programs you are using.
Why Non-Educational and Funny Content Videos Doesn’t Generate High Revenue?
As I already said, Your AdSense income comes directly from Advertisers.
And, If they are paying for something then they may get something in return eg. product sales and conversion etc.
But, If your content niche is related to non-educational, funny or something else,
Then how the Advertiser will get their product sales or any type of conversion from those irrelevant viewers.
Just think about it,
Think like an Advertiser which wants to make sales something.
Keep in mind, When your content is related to non-educational, funny or something else,
Then AdSense also shows the irreverent Ads on your Videos and Blogs which has fairly low CPC and RPM.
Also, note that Google generates 70% income from these Advertisers.
So, to protect their Advertisers they show the irreverent Ads.
I hope you understand, What I want to say here.
Generally, AdSense irrelevant ads has $0.10 to $0.30 CPC and $0.10 to $0.50 RPM which is very low as compared to relevant AdSense Ads.
AdSense Earning Calculations for Non-Educational and Funny content videos
I have already mentioned that Non-educational or funny content videos has fairly low CPC and RPM.
Now let me explain with some examples how much you can earn money using these type of content videos.
Here I am assuming the same views that I have taken above which is 1 Lac, CPC is $0.20, RPM is $0.30 and CTR is 10%,
So now let’s calculate your total AdSense earning now according to these values.
1st AdSense Earning = CPC * (1,00,000*10/100) 1st AdSense Earning = 0.20 * 10,000 1st AdSense Earning = 2,000
That means you will make $2,000 with 1 Lac views having CPC $0.20 and CTR 10%.
But keep in mind, this is not a total AdSense earning.
2nd AdSense Earning = RPM * (Views/1000) 2nd AdSense Earning = RPM * (1,00,000/1000) 2nd AdSense Earning = 0.30 * 100 2nd AdSense Earning = 30
That means you will make $30 with 1 Lac views having RPM $0.30.
And also keep in mind, this is not a total AdSense earning.
So, now let’s calculate the total AdSense earning
Total AdSense Earning = 1st AdSense Earning + 2nd AdSense Earning Total AdSense Earning = 2,000 + 30 Total AdSense Earning = 2,030
That means you will make only $2,030 having CPC $0.20, RPM $0.30 and CTR 10% which is very low as compared to informative or educational content videos.
Affiliate Earning Calculations for Non-Educational and Funny content videos
Have you watched a Non-educational, funny or something else videos?
Did you checked their video descriptions?
I know, Your answer would be NO, then how you will make sales from it.
There is no objection that you can put any affiliate links on the videos descriptions.
But the question is who will click on these links and make purchase.
I can say, You may get some clicks.
But, It wouldn’t be converted to sales.
So, What do you think?
How much you can earn from it?
I leave this question for you.

How to Avoid Copyright Strike on YouTube Reaction Videos?
I can’t guaranty that the below tips will work for all videos clips.
Because after all it also depends on the original content creators.
But following the below tips,
You have a 90% chance to avoid the copyright strikes or issue and other other 10% depends on your luck.
- Use your Video clip size small and place it at the left corner. Using small size videos may help you to prevent copyright issue but this is not only one factor.
- You also need to change the video clip pitch (maybe by a few cents- high or low) then you may not get any copyright strike.
- Off course, the mentioned above trick may avoid the copyright issue but as you are not the original content owner so just give the whole credit to the video owner which is also another way to avoid copyright strike.
