They have 11 Million views on their YouTube channel and they don’t run any ads on the videos. As a YouTuber myself, I can tell that it is extremely rare. If they did, they could have already collected $200,000 - $250,000. Walking away from that much cash is a serious display of someone’s motivations. I asked him in a comment about that and he said that he didn’t want to bother people with ads while they watched his videos because he hates it when he is watching a video and gets hit with ads. What an awesome example of putting others before profits. Say what you will about them, but I think this company is amazing.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
While it is true that Phil doesn't run ads on his videos, your estimates of $200-250K are completely inaccurate. It is well established and documented that per million views, people earn about $500-$2,500 depending on the time of year, and ad buys going on.
Anyone can verify this in many ways, perhaps most easily by searching "how much I make on YouTube." So,11 million views are equal to around $16,500 if you want to do an average of $1,500. The number one reason why people don't run advertisements because it would be off-putting to viewers, it is probably not worth the small amount of money compared to other opportunities. I really like Phil and his videos, but I can't let that one slide.
