Susan Wojcicki Reveals YouTube Paid Out $3 Billion To Music Industry Last Year

  • Post category:Other

Susan Wojcicki’s latest quarterly blog post made one thing very clear: YouTube really, really wants the music industry to like it.

YouTube’s CEO usually uses her blog posts to update the platform’s creators about what’s going on behind the scenes. But as 2020 marks YouTube’s 15th anniversary, she wanted to use this quarter’s to “address the entire YouTube community to reflect briefly on the past, and lay out our vision for the year ahead.”

While Wojcicki’s top point was about showing appreciation for creators (YouTube is launching its third annual #LoveNotes campaign), her second note was about YouTube’s intent to tango with the music industry.

YouTube and music artists, producers, and labels have been in a symbiotic relationship for years. On the plus-for-YouTube side, music videos draw massive view counts–sometimes, after a while, stretching into the billions–and all those views contribute to the billions YouTube makes in ad revenue each year. On the plus-for-music-industry side, YouTube provides a distribution platform, a cut of ad revenue, and the ability to copyright claim/monetize videos that use artists’ songs without permission.

Wojciki specifically highlighted that moneymaking potential, saying YouTube “offers twin engines for revenue with advertising and subscribers.” She revealed that in 2019 alone, YouTube paid out more than $3 billion to the music industry “from ads and subscriptions.”

Ad revenue, presumably, came from videos artists uploaded as well as videos claimed via Content ID. “Subscriptions” likely means income from the $9.99-per-month YouTube Music. Like Spotify, it pays out a specific amount to artists based on the number of times their songs are streamed.

For comparison, YouTube itself made $15.15 billion in ad revenue last year–meaning the entire music industry made 20% of that.

Wojcicki also leaned on the popularity of Justin Bieber and Billie Eilish, both of whom were discovered after uploading their music to YouTube. They “have built massive global audiences by directly connecting and engaging with fans on YouTube,” she wrote. She additionally credited YouTube for giving pop band OK Go a viral platform to publish their imaginative music videos, and said last year’s top song, “Old Town Road,” “became a YouTube phenomenon” before going on to be the longest-leading single on the Billboard Hot 100. (Signs indicate momentum for the song was mostly built on TikTok, where it became a meme.)

YouTube’s end goal here is to “partner with the music industry to grow revenue, break new artists and promote music,” Wojcicki concluded.

That’s a bit vague, but there is one potential concrete reason YouTube might want to remind the music industry, right now, how much money and exposure it generates. And that reason is: original content.

Last year, YouTube backed down from its plan to compete with Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, and all impending newcomers by making its original productions free to watch (rather than accessible solely through $11.99-per-month YouTube Premium). In the wake of that decision, it announced that music-focused originals were one of its key areas, along with educational series like Retro Tech and Age of AI. It made good on that announcement by producing a swath of originals featuring Colombian pop artist MalumaColdplayJohnny Cash, and producer Mark Ronson.

Then it reportedly invested more than $20 million in the 10-episode Justin Bieber: Seasons. The price tag makes the show YouTube’s most expensive original ever–and it’s an investment that seems to be paying off. Seasons (which is still airing) swiftly became YouTube’s most viewed original to date, in terms of views earned within the first week of a series premiere; its 11-minute first episode earned 32.56 million views in seven days (now up to 59 million), topping Liza on Demand (25.4 million) and Cobra Kai (21 million).

While YouTube hasn’t yet announced its content slate for 2020, there’s a good chance the platform will want to continue building on that Bieber momentum by making more music originals–so it doesn’t hurt to tout that $3 billion contribution.

Brat Brings In TikTok Star Dixie D’Amelio To Front New Series ‘Attaway General’

  • Post category:Other

Gen Z-focused digital studio Brat has snagged Dixie D’Amelio for its next web series.

The 18-year-old TikTok luminary will star in new scripted series Attaway General, about a group of teens who volunteer together at a local hospital. As its title suggests, the series is set in Attaway, the same fictional town in which Brat’s flagship web series Chicken Girls takes place.

D’Amelio has more than 10 million followers on TikTok, and an additional 2 million on Instagram. She, her sister Charli, and their parents Heidi and Marc (all of whom also have sizeable TikTok followings) recently signed with UTA for representation across all areas.

She isn’t the only TikTokker set to star in Attaway General. It will also feature Griffin Johnson (3.2 million followers), Eric Montanez (2.6 million), Gabby Morrison (2.3 million), Diego Martir (2.1 million), Madi Monroe (1.2 million), and Lauren Kettering (1.1 million). Camille Stochitch and Alexander Berman will direct, per The Hollywood Reporter.

@dixiedameliohello♬ some things abt me – chismusic

Attaway General is one of two new shows Brat will introduce during its spring 2020 slate. The second new show is Stage Fright, starring YouTubers Sophie Michelle (774K subscribers), Tahani Anderson (46.6K), and Pressley Hosbach (25.4K), as well as actor Skyler Guthrie. Their characters will come together in mystery-solving mode after disaster strikes a high school musical.

Brat is also bringing back two mainstay shows–Mani and the aforementioned Chicken Girls–for their fifth and sixth seasons, respectively. With the push from these new shows and seasons rolling out, Brat expects to hit one billion total views by March, cofounder Rob Fishman told THR.

Attaway General, Stage Fright, and new seasons will all air on Brat’s YouTube channel, Brat TV (3.7 million subscribers), as well as on distribution platforms like Amazon Prime, Roku, and Tubi.

It’s worth noting viewers could soon see Brat-produced offerings on other platforms and channels. Last July, the studio teamed with MGM Television to develop YA programming. Brat and MGM were pretty mum on the partnership until last month, when they announced they’d brought in longtime AwesomenessTV producer Jina Jones to run studio development for their shared projects.

Jake Paul Launches ‘The Financial Freedom Movement,’ A $19.99/Month Program For Kids To Become Influencers

  • Post category:Other

Jake Paul is bringing back Edfluence.

Sort of.

This past weekend, the YouTuber (whose channel boasts 19 million subscribers and between 25 and 50 million views per month) held a splashy Los Angeles launch for the Financial Freedom Movement (FFM), his new platform designed to teach kids how to establish an online presence–and monetize it.

Access to FFM costs $19.99 per month, and Paul told Variety there’s no set curriculum. But on its website, FFM promises to dole out “Jake Paul’s personal experience, rituals and secret formula” and offer access to “cutting edge mentorship, coaching, and training from multiple millionaires, expert trainers and thought leaders on how to achieve financial freedom using social media and the internet.” It also says members will get weekly video coaching calls with Paul “and guest expert trainers, influencers and thought leaders hand-selected by Jake himself.”

Some of the guests listed include Dan Fleyshman (founder of Who’s Your Daddy energy drinks; his FFM-listed qualification is “spent over $60M on influencer marketing”), Billy Gene (“ads have been seen over 600M times”), and Cole A. Hatter (“sold over $150M; expert on sales & real estate”).

FFM’s website also advertises the $19.99 price as a discount from $40, hinting at a possible future price increase, and says the first 10,000 “movement makers” to join receive “insane bonuses.”

FFM sounds a whole lot like Edfluence, the project Paul quietly launched in early 2018. Similar to FFM, it was meant to teach Paul’s primarily young audience members how to “change the world,” “make a dent in the universe,” and earn cold hard cash by becoming YouTubers just like him. Those interested could purchase a set of starter videos for $7; the full program cost an additional $57. (Its website appears to have been shut down a couple of weeks ago.)

With FFM, Paul has brought in a business partner–GenZ Holdings Inc., which bills itself as “a collection of high-visibility consumer brands and media properties designed for the Millennial and GenZ demographics”– and tweaked the messaging a bit. In social media posts teasing the launch, he lamented how “our education system is worthless,” and is “teaching kids 0 real life skills for them to secure there own future” (sic). During the intro event–held at Hollywood Sports Park in southeast L.A. County–he explained to the audience of around 50 teen and tween fans that he was disinterested in traditional school. He dropped out of high school after 11th grade and finished his diploma online.

“I just got the answers from a cheat site and put it in and didn’t have to do any work,” he said, noting that he thinks other unenthusiastic students probably do the same thing.

FFM is supposed to be the answer for those unenthusiastic students because apparent experts are teaching them skills they’re actually interested in. “Why are kids sitting in ‘film’ class learning from a teacher who has never even made a film??” Paul wrote in promo posts. “I was the kid in class who was the smartest but wouldn’t apply myself because I thought it was so stupid to be sitting there.”

Signs put up at the launch event echoed Paul’s sentiments: “I learned the periodic table but not how to do my taxes. Not awesome!” “Pi = 3.14 but how do I start a renters lease” (sic). “School sucks start a YouTube channel today.”

Kids at the launch had a meet-and-greet with Paul (and influencer friends of his, according to Variety, although none were named), were able to buy FFM merch, and were showered with dollar bills fired from “cash cannons.”

FFM’s website does caution that the platform is not for people “looking for a magic pill to success” because “there isn’t one.” It’s also not for people “who want a ‘get rich quick’ plan” because “this is about long term wealth and freedom.” And it’s also not for “people who believe education requires massive debt and countless years of outdated education taught by people who don’t have the results you want.”

Asked at the launch whether FFM’s marketing sends a dangerous message to young fans, Paul said he doesn’t necessarily expect FFM subscribers to drop out of school like he did. To parents, he added, “I would say why would you ever stop your kid from learning anything that is going to make he or she smarter? That sounds terrible.”

TV in Numbers: All the Stats and Facts You Need

  • Post category:Netflix

It should come as no real surprise that people around the world spend a staggering amount of time in front of their electronics. Be it smartphones, tablets, laptops, or TVs. In the digital age that we’re currently in, we really don’t have a choice, for the most part. We need our devices for communication, for work, and, of course, for entertainment.

The latter, entertainment, is what we’re here to talk about!

Spotify has its annual wrap-up and YouTube has Rewind, but what are the numbers on watching TV? That’s what we want to know. In this article, we reveal just some of the incredible facts and statistics surrounding TV shows and watching them!

How long do people in America watch TV?

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ 2015 American Time Use Survey (BLS ATUS), Americans spend roughly 2 hours and 47 minutes watching TV on an average day. That’s about 1/8 of the day and is, by far, the longest period of time dedicated to leisure.

But take note, that was in 2015. Before the booming popularity of streaming platforms. Further still, that doesn’t necessarily differentiate if they were watching TV shows or movies.

In recent times, I’d imagine that time period to be much longer! How many times have you lost track of time in the evenings telling yourself “just one more episode and then I’ll go to bed?” More times than you’d like to admit, I’m sure!

2015 is around about the time Netflix’s shares shot up. And 2016 saw that change reflected in the time spent watching TV. The New York Times reports that Nielsen’s data shows Americans watch 5 hours and 4 minutes of TV every day. Almost double what it was the year before!

Who watches TV the most?

In another study by the BLS for the 2013 to 2017 period, viewers older than 65 spent the most amount of time watching TV at around 4 hours and 14 minutes, while viewers aged 25-34 spent just 2 hours and 4 minutes watching. It makes sense, considering the former age group are likely retirees while the latter is still employed.

On that note, unemployed viewers spend an average of 3 hours and 49 minutes watching TV. While those who are employed, whether part-time or full time, spend just 2 hours and 8 minutes watching.

When do Americans watch TV?

The same BLS survey tells us that on average, people spend more time watching TV during the fall and winter seasons (around October through to March). We’re just speculating here, but it might have to do with those months having prime “Netflix and chill” weather. You know, with just enough chill in their air to snuggle with someone under the blankets.

On any given day, however, there’s a reason why shows fight for that primetime TV spot. Between 8 pm and 9 pm is the most popular time, with just under 60% of people watching TV on both weekdays and weekends and holidays. At 7 pm to 8 pm, roughly 50% of people are watching TV while about 55% are still watching at 9 pm to 10 pm.

How many TV households are there in America?

In the 2019-2020 TV season, Statista reports that there are a whopping 120.6 million TV households in America.

However, that’s still the smaller percentage as more and more people are moving to online streaming services.

Unsurprisingly, an average of 35% of adults aged 55 or older prefer watching pay-TV as opposed to the 7% of viewers aged 25 to 34, and the meager 1% who are younger than 25.

What TV programs are people still watching, then?

The Nielsen 2019 report on tops in the TV industry shows that in terms of single US telecasts, the Super Bowl LIII garnered the most viewers at 98.82 million viewers. Outside of sports, the only other shows that ranked within the top 10 were the Oscars (30.5 million) and the retrospective special episode of The Big Bang Theory that aired after its series finale (24.7 million).

Sunday night football was the most popular regularly scheduled program of the year, with an average of almost 20 million viewers. Other series’ that are within the top 10 ranks are CBS’ The Big Bang Theory, NCIS, Young Sheldon, and FBI, along with HBO Prime’s Game of Thrones and NBC’s This Is Us.

It seems that CBS had a very successful 2019 TV season!

How many subscribers to Netflix?

Statista also reports that in the third quarter of 2019, Netflix hit the 158 million subscriber mark worldwide. That’s excluding the roughly 5.5 million that were still on their free trial!

Another report from Tech Jury states that in December 2018, 60% of American adults had at least one person with a paid Netflix subscription in their household. Imagine the volume – and revenue! – now that it’s available in 190 countries.

Most Netflix-streamed show in 2019?

Apart from acquired shows, Netflix releases a constant slew of original content.

In 2018, they released one thousand original titles, which was more than three times what they produced the year before. In 2018, The Hollywood Reporter revealed that users had spent 52 billion minutes streaming The Office and 32.6 billion minutes watching Friends. Adding up to about 99,103 years and 61,983 years, respectively. That’s insane!

Just last October, Netflix revealed its top TV series up to September of 2019. Although they didn’t include the shows they acquired from elsewhere in said report. Stranger Things topped the list this year, with 64 million viewers!

What are the statistics on Hulu?

Though not nearly as much as Netflix, Hulu is also slowly starting to grow its customer base as well.

In May 2019, the platform revealed that it had increased by 12% so far, with their subscriber count up to 28 million so far.

While The Handmaid’s Tale had the most-watched premiere episode in 2018, Hulu has yet to reveal what its top TV shows were for 2019!

And as a bit of bonus information, it’s interesting to note as well that just one day after the launch of Disney+, it gained a staggering 10 million subscribers! Given all of these statistics, it’s no wonder that binge-watching TV shows have become so much a part of everyone’s daily lives. Guess it makes us feel a little less guilty knowing so many others around the world spend the same amount of time watching TV!

Returning: After Life

  • Post category:Netflix

Season 2 of After Life is coming to Netflix on April 24.

In the darkly comic series Ricky Gervais stars as a local journalist and widower deeply mourning the death of his wife. The series also features Kerry Godliman, Tom Basden, Tony Way, David Bradley, Ashley Jensen, Mandeep Dhillon and Penelope Wilton.

“I have never had a reaction like this before,” Gervais said after the first series. “It’s been insane. And heartwarming. But now I have to make sure the second season is even better so I’ll probably have to work much harder than usual. Annoying really.”
