YouTube’s Top Three Earners of 2018 Included A Seven-Year-Old Boy!
Social media is playing a huge part in our lives these days. We can’t live without it and yet, we also can’t live with it. As people across the globe are voicing their concerns on the wrong usage of social media platforms, it is time we remember Einstein. On the context of the atom bomb, he had once said that we can either eat the apple or throw it at someone to hurt them. Some people have eaten the apple and found it sweet, too. Influencers across the various platforms can make a huge amount of money from their fan following and the kind of content they post. Here are the top three earners from YouTube who earned in millions last year.
Dude Perfect — Est. $20 Million
It all started when a few high school basketball players got together at a friend’s backyard and did a trick shots video which got over 200,000 views on YouTube. The members of the group Dude Perfect are twins Coby and Cory Cotton, Garrett Hilbert, Cody Jones, and Tyler Toney. They were eventually called by the ESPN’s E:60 where Toney converted a shot in 3.9 seconds from the third floor. It went on to be a world record at that time. Over the years, the group got together and posted several videos of trick shots and stunts as well as videos of competitions where two team members were pitted against each other in a friendly way. To date, they have about 7 billion views. Their most popular video has to be their ping pong balls trick shots where they set up various obstacle courses and bounced around ping pong balls with a single objective — to shoot the ping pong balls into a cup. Sponsored by Oreo, the video got 175 million views.
Jake Paul — Est. $21.5 Million
2018 was a great year for Jake Paul, who had started out his career through the video-sharing network, Vine. His brother, Logan Paul, is also a well-known YouTuber. He had made investments to form his own company for teen entertainment. His popularity led to him being part of the Disney program Bizaardvark. He has been doing great with his merchandise business and has over 5.4 billion views so far!
Ryan’s ToysReview — Est. $22 Million
Ryan is just a seven-year-old boy who loves to buy toys. However, he has earned $22 million so far, all thanks to his new career as a toy reviewer on YouTube. All he has to do is play in front of the camera and be himself. He is a naturally funny and entertaining boy, and those exact traits helped him have over 18 million subscribers and close to 26 billion views. His Huge Eggs Surprise Toys Challenge video posted a few days back got a record-breaking 1.7 billion views, which made it the 39th most -watched YouTube video of all time. From 2016 to 2017, he was the eighth highest paid YouTuber, but last year, he jumped to the position of number one! And now he has his own line of toys that can be bought at Walmart, Target, and Amazon!
If you have a talent for making unique videos, you should try being a YouTuber, and if you’re lucky, you might earn in millions like these stars.
