You Won’t Believe How Much the Most Famous YouTubers Earn Per Minute
In today’s gig economy and entrepreneurial culture, people are less inclined to work a traditional 9-to-5 desk job. With the advent of social media, even underage kids can earn huge amounts of money by just doing what they know best. How? You must have heard of the video streaming giant, YouTube, where anyone can become an internet celebrity.
The video-sharing platform has become an avenue for people to make a living and at the same time, reach a lot of their supporters. Unlike what used to be the norm, you can earn serious dough when you’re a YouTuber.
Since YouTube’s launch in 2005, it has given birth to a lot of stars whose talents transcended the site. It didn’t just make certain names popular throughout the years, but also made them millionaires – some of whom are too young to even enroll in college.
It’s no wonder why there are more and more people trying their luck at becoming the next YouTube sensation, much like Justin Bieber, Shawn Mendes, and Alessia Cara who first found fame on the site. If you’ve been thinking about dipping your toes in the world of YouTube fame and fortune, take a look at these stars for inspiration.
Kids and kids-at-heart who were once addicted to the sandbox video game Minecraft would know who PewDiePie, or Felix Kjellberg in real life, is.
He is a game commentator who would simply play the game, entertain his viewers with funny commentary, give out clues and tips, and react to how his character fared. Last year, his earnings ballooned to $15.5 million, and that’s not only from video games.
PewDiePie has ventured into commenting on memes and everything viral you can find online. While he seems to be on top of his YouTube game, he is no stranger to controversy.
He constantly found himself in hot waters after eyebrow-raising remarks that significantly affected his subscriber count. Despite this, he still makes a whopping $3,319.71 per minute!
Judging from the name of the channel, you already got a hint that Ryan reviews toys. This might not sound interesting to us, but to this 8-year-old’s 21.5 million subscribers, Ryan Kaji is nothing less than a star.
To add to the fact that he is so young, last year, he earned an eponymous $22 million from reviewing and showing off his toys with his family. As per how much he rakes in per minute, it’s a whopping $5,204.92.
Makeup fanatics out there are familiar with Jeffree Star, or Jeffree Steininger in real life. Those who have followed him since his MySpace heyday know him so well.
He currently has 15.9 million subscribers, with whom he shares his makeup tutorials and controversial reviews of various makeup brands. He went home with $18 million last year, which equals $10,077.99 a minute.
Dude Perfect earned a whopping $20 million last year, which was divided between five friends: twins Coby and Cory Cotton, Cody Jones, Garrett Hilbert, and Tyler Toney. They are former high school basketball players who make a total of $85,026.78 per minute from recording sports tricks.
