How Much Money do Viral Music Videos Make?

By in Music Promotion Tips on April 3, 2013

Ever wondered how much money a viral music hit makes – and where that revenue comes from? Here’s an infographic by FanDistro, a company who we recently reviewed here on The Musician’s Guide, that explores behind the scenes of viral music. What I find particularly interesting about this infographic is how there’s seemingly no correlation between how viral a music video went and how much it earned from digital download revenue. It’s also interesting to see the breakdown of Gangnam Style’s reported earnings from commercial deals, digital downloads, streams, and YouTube ad revenue.
