Enter the average views per video, the average earnings per 1000 views (CPM), and the total cost of video production ($) into the calculator to determine the YouTube Profit. 

YouTube Profit Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the YouTube Profit. 

Py = AV/1000 * CPM – TCP 

  • Where Py is the YouTube Profit ($)
  • AV is the average views per video 
  • CPM is the average earnings per 1000 views (CPM) 
  • TCP is the total cost of video production ($) 

How to Calculate YouTube Profit?

The following example problems outline how to calculate YouTube Profit.

Example Problem #1

  1. First, determine the average views per video. In this example, the average views per video is given as 100000 .
  2. Next, determine the average earnings per 1000 views (CPM). For this problem, the average earnings per 1000 views (CPM) is given as  3 .
  3. Next, determine the total cost of video production ($). In this case, the total cost of video production ($) is found to be 100.
  4. Finally, calculate the YouTube Profit using the formula above: 

Py = AV/1000 * CPM – TCP 

Inserting the values from above yields: 

Py = 100000/1000 * 3 – 100  = 200.00 ($)


Example Problem #2

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

average views per video = 50000

average earnings per 1000 views (CPM) = 6

total cost of video production ($) = 150

Entering these values and solving gives:

Py = 50,000/1000 * 6 – 150  = 150 ($)
