Benjy David Fish, also known as Benjyfishy is a popular gaming YouTuber from the United Kingdom. He is reported to be worth $1.2 million. His primary content consists of gameplay videos of the renowned battle royale game Fortnite.
He is also one of the top Fortnite World Cup players, having won $450,000 in prize money so far. His prowess as a professional player has led him to abandon traditional schooling in favour of homeschooling.
The channel currently has over 2 million subscribers and has received over 150 million views. It receives an average of 330,000 views each day from various sources. The advertising that appear on the videos are expected to generate an estimated $1,600 per day ($580,000 per year).
YouTubers get paid $2 – $7 every 1000 monetized views. The percentage of monetized views ranges from 40% to 80% of total views. All of this is determined by a variety of elements such as the device used, the time of year, the viewer’s location, ad inventory, the number of advertising on a video, how many people skip the advertisements, the style of commercial, ad engagement, the type of content, and so on. The price of an ad view is determined by an auction between advertisers based on the number of views. Advertisers must bid at least $0.01 each view.
There is also a program called Google Preferred, which allows large corporations to tailor ads to the top 5% of most popular content. The ad rates are greater than usual here.
Aside from commercials, YouTubers earn money via YouTube Red subscribers, who pay a monthly fee to view premium material on YouTube as well as watch videos without commercials. They are compensated according to the amount of time people spend watching their videos. The more time their viewers spend watching their videos, the more money they earn.
Benjyfishy has over 1.4 million followers on the platform and has received over 15 million views. He averages 20,000 views every stream, with the peak viewership reaching 83,000. Streamers make the majority of their money through advertisements, subscribers, contributions, and bits. Benjyfishy has an estimated 3,800 customers from whom he earns a minimum of $2.5 a month they subscribe.
Officially, Twitch Partners and Affiliates earn 50% of the overall subscription amount, thus the streamer would receive roughly $2.50 for the $4.99 tier. Twitch has been known to increase this amount for famous streamers in order to entice them to stay on the site, with some being upgraded to anywhere from 60% to 100% of the monthly price.
