Mark Rober puts a lot of time and attention into making great videos. This effort is no longer just a hobby as Mark Rober is now a full-time YouTuber.
After working as an engineer at Nasa and Apple, Mark Rober is convinced that making videos is the most challenging career he has ever had. So why is he working so hard, and how is he making money?
In this interview, Mark Rober discusses how he makes money by making great videos on YouTube. Mark Talks through the sponsorships he has had over the past four years and the ad revenue he can generate from Youtube and Facebook views.
Although Mark is excellent at what he does, he still doesn't see running his youtube channel as a full-time job. He has purposely not built a big team and still insists on doing much of the creative work.
Mark is not obsessed with scaling every element of his channel. He is publishing one video every month or two and plans to keep it that way.
Mark sees adding a team, a book deal, and more revenue-generating activities would lead to burnout.
He also spends time publishing to platforms like Instagram and TikTok even though they are not revenue-generating platforms for Mark's content. (at the time of recording, Mark was not making revenue on TikTok).
This video was filmed before Mark released his recent online engineering course, which has also helped him generate revenue without increasing his one video per month.
