    Somewhere around $1 to $3 fixed. I also heard that the longer you are with them the more money you make and depends on channel size.

    i think their standard offer is $2.50 as I have some friends who have that deal. My other friend makes $6 per 1000 with them tho. They will definitely up the offer if u have a popular channel.

    2.5-6 is a great deal!
    I know it probably varies but does anybody know the average amount Maker Studios pays per thousand views?

    it's usually around 2.5-3.5, except this fixed CPM is bad if you eventually get popular.

    Yea, but some contracts are not too long (like 1 year) so you can change after that.

    If you're partnered through these high paying Networks will you get in trouble if you buy a bunch of views?

    Don't think so, they just won't count them.

    I know the real answer to this as I am partner with them but I can't say what it actually is.

    I don't think anyone makes $6 per 1000 views... Youtube partners like Raywilliamjohnson and smosh only get $2.50 per 1000. Unless there's something I'm missing because I swear I saw that on youtube faq sheet of how much partners make unless they give raises...

    Well.. depends... If you can get your video high on the search list with a view bot, more people will see the video then you will get more views.

    Yes, there are a few that make $6 per 1000. Smosh gets waaaay more than $2.50. Not sure what Ray gets.

    Smosh and RWJ make more money because they are with networks. I know RWJ is with Maker Studios so the network gets the best paying ads to put on their videos.

    I've heard rumors that it's around $1-5 per 1k views.

    Not sure though.
