Practical example: A Youtuber who makes videos on the subject of “PC Hardware” is highly relevant for PC and hardware advertising. Since there is a lot of competition in this industry, he will probably make (relatively) a lot of money with the advertising that is played in front of his videos. (CPM = between € 5 to € 10)

(Views / 1000) x CPM (Value between 1 and 5) = revenue
