Income as a Yotubers cannot be underestimated now. Thanks to one of these social media platforms, one can get tens of millions of US dollars in each year. Today many famous YouTubers are able to make their personal image a multimillion-dollar business. Now the Youtuber have found a new source of income outside of advertising revenue in their videos. Forbes recently released the highest paid list of YouTubers, based on their earnings from June 1, 2017, to June 1, 2018. Here are 10 Forbes’s richest Yotuber in the world:
- Jacksepticeye (16 million US dollars)
Streamer Irish video game, Sean “Jacksepticeye” McLoughlin is one of the first YouTubers to be part of the Disney-sponsored Revelmode network of PewDiePie. This made him get many followers. While Disney finally discarded Revelmode, McLoughlin finally entered to create an original program for Disney XD, a TV channel marketed for children and adolescents. McLoughlin also acts as a host and for a number of live broadcasts and tours to Europe and North America.
- PewDiePie (15.5 million US dollars)
In recent years, Felix “PewDiePie” Kjellberg, is the most successful YouTuber in the world. But the recent scandal accusing video-game commentators about racism and anti-Semitism has caused a slight decline in its sponsorship. However, like Logan Paul, PewDiePie managed to increase its overall income by around 3.5 million US dollars between June 2017 and June 2018. PewDiePie still has the most customers from every single account on YouTube with more than 92 million, but the YouTube channel that focuses on Bollywood, the T-Series, briefly took it off at the end of March.
- Logan Paul (US $ 14.5 million)
Vlogger Logan Paul is the fourth highest earning YouTuber last year. But his image fell after uploading a video of a corpse he had found in Japan’s Aokigahara forest, a location known for suicide. As a result, YouTube removed Paul from the Google Preferred program, which affected its advertising revenue. However, the channel continues to gather followers, and he continues to earn income from his personal merchandise and celebrity appearance. Despite scandals in Japan, Paul was able to increase his income by 2 million dollars a year. One of Paul’s most watched actions this year is a boxing match against the British KSI YouTuber held in London. The fight ended in a draw, and the internet stars are planning a rematch for next year.
