Hi! I’m Kelly and I am an American who lived in Germany for 18 wonderful months. While I lived abroad before in Turkey and had done quite a bit of traveling beforehand, those 18 months in Germany definitely broadened my perspective of Germany, Europe, and even the US in so many different ways! I wanted to share my perceptions with you guys through YouTube so that maybe you can gain context to things you’ve heard about, or learn new information or a different perspective, or maybe this is everything you’ve heard before and further confirms your world view. No matter what the reason, I hope that you enjoy my videos! Don’t forget to subscribe to my channel and turn on notifications so that you always know when I’m posting new content 🙂

35 Thoughts to “Earning Money on YouTube – These are My Numbers”

  1. These are hands down the most supportive comments I’ve ever gotten on a video and I just want to thank you all!!

  2. Thanks so much for this video. You answered questions that I have wondered about for a long time. I love the fact that you are so honest and open about how things progressed as you made your videos.

  3. I didn't think that you could talk about add revenue on You tube. Very informative. Anyway Congrats and thank you for what you do.

  4. CDO

    This was very informative and interesting. Thank you.

  5. Great behind-the-scenes view on how you make money @ YouTube as content creator! High-5s from a Danish guy currently working out of Netherlands because my project a year ago in Germany wasn't long-term – and now looking at going back to Switzerland for some more IT work.
    In USA you have states and Federal. In Europe we have countries, partly covered by a pseudo union too many historic wars to count – as it boils down – too many reasons to not favor collaboration and web.
    Keep on U-tubing – and I will chime in when relevant. As US American girlfriend told me in late 1990+s (read: pre-web, pre YouTube) => G.E. = Go Europe = Great Experience.

  6. Keep being personal and I think you will do just fine.

  7. Thank you for the explanation. Good for you.

  8. Very informative, I'm actually surprised you made so much, I thought Youtube was only worth it for the "mega" creators. I pretty much only watch obscure stuff so I'm glad that the regular folks can make a few bucks too! I still think Patreon is the way to go for my favorites though. Keep up the good work, I'm glad you're making it! By the way, you should move back to Germany, I did after 5 years away and it's wunderschön to be back 😉

  9. Thx for sharing this info 👍

  10. Vielen Dank für das ehrliche Video. Ich mag Deinen Kanal und die Inhalte Deiner Videos. Du bist wirklich authentisch. Das gefällt mir. Weiter so!

  11. Interesting and honest! 👍🏻

  12. Thanks for the explanation of the system YouTube and the payment of the content makers works. Thank you for the honesty with which you reveal your payment.

  13. Love this woman. So good looking and the best english spelling i have ever heard in my life. I live in Germany and i understand every word she´s saying.
    Thanks for your transparency! 🙂

  14. thanks for sharing. 18k is before taxes, right? where do you have to pay taxes for this? in germany or in the U.S.? and is this a big difference?

  15. Do not forget that it is very nice to pronounce in English, so why don't you just look at the Germans 🙂 And the sauna video was very interesting, I would appeal to you in this case.It's worth a try 🙂

  16. Kelly, big respect for the transparency. You deserved every cent of that for your work and I also applaud your down-to-earth-realism when putting it all into context especially in regards to doing this full time.

    I hope you can and will continue doing the stuff you WANT to do. I am convinced, your success will be longer lived, and more enjoyable, when it is on your terms and not in the name of more viewers and more ad revenue.

    god speed!

  17. Hi Kelly! I hope you’re doing well! I really appreciated the information in this video. Although I don’t think I would ever become a YouTube, I love your channel! Have a great day! I can’t wait for your next video! 🙂

  18. Well, 18K US$ per anum isn't that much but getting 18K US$ for persuing a hobby is HUGE.
    Thanks to your video I get it why, e.g. MrBeast is capable of throwing money away.

  19. I don’t think you are allowed to Talk about it

  20. You did a great job with this video! Thank you and best wishes for your upcoming year.

  21. Thanks a lot for sharing your experiences with regards of earning money with YouTube…and thank you so much for your authenticy and honesty….I appreciate that!

  22. Thanks a lot for these insights!
    Always wondered what kinds of customizations YTs would have in terms of placing ads and ad types, how much these could pay off…
    And certainly laughing at the revenue Germans would bring compared to other countries! :'-D

  23. Thank you for posting what you really made on your You Tube channel for a year! Your the first person I've seen that actually showed the real numbers and didn't just allude to a certain amount or say so many digits before the period. I've been really curious about how much is really made by doing You Tube videos and how some can actually only do You Tube to provide their income. Thanks!

  24. While we watch you telling us how you make a lot of money with us you make a lot of money with us. 😀
    Es sei Dir gegönnt. Ich hätte nicht die Energie, so viel Zeit in einen Channel zu stecken, wie Du es tust. Viel Erfolg weiterhin!
    P.s. To be so transparent about earnings is strange but really outstanding. Thank you!

  25. I guess you still have to pay taxes over your payments?

  26. Thanks for giving me a wake up call! Now I know that even though I am interested in certain contents, I won't be irresponsible and watch it if the content is merely out of curiosity's sake. I like that you have been quite honest in the earnings you have received. Also, I like your videos and have subscribed right away because of the content. What you probably don't know is that my German husband actually showed me the video because it just popped up randomly on his suggestion page. He has never watched anything remotely close to Americans living in Germany. Something must have triggered to put your video on his suggestion page. In all honesty, this is really scary. Do you think there's still a rock unturned somewhere that I could hide myself in? Looking up…how to hide from G—–

  27. anybody already thinking of quitting your job? before doing so, keep in mind, that it's not the filming or editing which is the tough part. even finding a topic is nothing compared to …. PERSONALITY! the host of the show has to be somewhat catchy to make the YouTube thing work, just like Kelly is. and that's mostly something you either have or you don't.

  28. I hope you don't get demonetized talking about all of this! I always thought YouTubers are not allowed to talk about YouTube money?

  29. Haven't seen anybody do this, very cool. Never thought that someone with that amount of subscribers would make that much money. Crazy.

    btw, I love watching the Legal Eagle 😀

  30. I am very happy for you making a good buck of youtube..well done, girl..well done!!!

  31. I find it very enlightening to understand how this actually works. I wasn't aware. Thank you for being so open about this. You are probably the only one who would do this.

  32. This is a lot more money then I would have expected to be honest. It also showed me how some content creators are rather greedy. Thank you for this video.

  33. Kelly even you're employer can fire you and the chances of him doing are more than you tube blocking your channel

  34. Turn shit into money. 😂
