Here in Ghana, let’s just say we slack. YouTubers have sprung up in Ghana these past few weeks and although people are grumbling, most of them have great content we can wait to see grow over time.
Once your YouTube grows, you can definitely make some money out of it and these YouTubers, from as young as 8, are currently the highest earning YouTubers in the world!
1. Ryan’s World
Earnings: $26 million
It’s almost unbelievable that an 8-year-old is the highest-paid YouTuber in the world. He started by making videos purely of himself opening toys and playing with them. While this sounds rather hard to watch, he managed to gain millions of views on each of his videos. Ryan’s video “Huge Eggs Suprise” got 1.9 billion views. His videos have a huge impact on the toy industry and advertisers for toy companies are willing to splurge on this young YouTuber. Ryan now creates animation videos for kids that should keep his subscribers and income rolling in for a few more years.
2. Dude Perfect
Earnings: $20 million
Dude Perfect is not only one perfect dude. They’re actually a group of 5 high school friends with the Cotton twins, Cory and Coby as the core of the team. Unlike the channel above, Dude Perfect focuses mainly on sports. They got their fan base from their great sense of humor. They have other sources of income such as their mobile app called Dude Perfect and pretty much all their YouTube videos are sponsored. However, they still make most of their money off YouTube ads.
Earnings: $18 million
Nastya is the second-highest-paid child YouTuber in the world. But unlike Ryan’s World, Nastya’s YouTube is about her own life instead of toy reviews. Videos include day trips to the beach, birthday parties, Halloween costumes, and all sorts of things along those lines. Nastya wouldn’t be so well-known if it wasn’t for her father, a well humored Russian American father. The two make the perfect YouTube vlog duo.
4. Jeffree Star
Earnings: $17 million
While Jeffree makes bank from YouTube, he also has many different sources where he earns income. For example, he’s a singer-songwriter, model, and DJ. There’s not much he isn’t good at, and that goes for makeup as well. Jeffree’s YouTube channel is all things makeup. There are tutorials, brand reviews, and funny challenge videos. He’s basically a beauty guru. With that being true, he has even started his own makeup line, Jeffree Star Cosmetics, which has really lifted off.
5. DanTDM (Daniel Middleton)
Earnings: $16.5 million
Who said gaming was a waste of time? After all, the (previous) richest man on YouTube has made a fortune off Minecraft videos. And we can see why. Since Dan already has an establishment, advertisers are willing to pay (a lot) more to have their ads on his videos. And with his average view per video sitting at 4.84 million, YouTube isn’t just a side job. DanTDM does, however, have other sources of income like YouTube sponsorships, and merchandise.
If this doesn’t inspire you to start your YouTube channel, we don’t know what else will!
