Michelle Phan’s Net Worth

Michelle Phan's net worth
Youtube was one of the first sites of its kind when it launched in 2005. Now many sites have tried copying it but none have been as successful and none pay out what Youtube does either. Many Youtube stars are making a ton of cash from their video views. Whether their channel is about makeup, gaming or simply a comedic station, Youtubers make bank. Some of them are even worth millions of dollars.

What about Youtube makeup artist Michelle Phan? Is she raking in the cash from her Youtube channel? What is Michelle Phan’s net worth and how did Youtube help her get there?

Michelle Phan’s Net Worth

Michelle Phan’s net worth is estimated to be about $50 million. Since she began taping her makeup tutorials in 2005 Phan has been bringing in a significant amount of money from Youtube as well as a number of other lucrative deals she was able to land because of her channel.

Phan was born on April 11, 1987 in Boston but lived most of her life in Tampa, Fla. She attended Ringling College of Art and Design and received an Honorary Doctorate in 2014. By then, however, Phan had already been posting about makeup tutorials and creating videos for nine years.

The 30-year-old Youtube star started out blogging on her own personal site which focused on talking about new/different makeup techniques. She also critiqued some of the makeup tutorial videos that existed on the web at the time. It wasn’t long until Phan got the vlogging bug herself though. After Buzzfeed shared  her video “How to Get Lady Gaga’s Eyes,” Phan went viral and was able to climb to over 1 million subscribers.

Since then Phan has become a Youtube advertising partner and has even launched her own multi-channel network called FAWN. Additionally, her Youtube channel was named on the “New Media Rockstars‘” Top 100 Channels at number 48.

Although each of Phan’s accomplishments on Youtube are no small feat, she didn’t get all her cash from the streaming site. What else has contributed to Michelle Phan’s net worth?

How Phan’s Youtube Career Built Wealth

Michelle Phan's net worthNot many 30-year-olds have a $50 million fortune they’re sitting on but Phan was able to manipulate Youtube to benefit her business ventures. After gathering a following Phan was able to start earning real money from Youtube.

Youtubers are able to pull in a lot of cash from their videos. You get pay $1.50 to $4 for every 1,000 views your video receives. Once you reach 1 million subscribers about 10 percent of your following will view a video when it is posted. So, essentially, Youtubers with 1 million subscribers will make $150 to $400 for every video they post. After a while, this adds up.

Another way many Youtubers, including Phan, make money is through other endorsements and deals. Phan was able to land deals with big name-brand makeup companies like L’Oreal and Lancôme. She’s also published her own book, launched her own music group and makeup subscription company.

It is fair to say that many Youtubers are doing well. Because of her ability to use Youtube and land awesome deals, Michelle Phan’s net worth is likely to continue to climb in the years to come.

What is Conor Maynard’s Net Worth?

Conor Maynard's net worth

Conor Maynard has become one of my favorite musicians to listen to in the mornings. It started out as seeing his videos on Facebook in the morning and giving them a listen to subscribing to his Youtube channel and giving his sweet, sweet voice a listen each morning.

Maynard isn’t what many people would consider a “mainstream” pop star, though you’ve probably listened to at least one of his cover songs. The 24-year-old singer has certainly made a name for himself on the web but what is Conor Maynard’s net worth and how much cash has he raked in from his online music career?

About Conor Maynard

Conor Maynard is not a United States citizen. He was born in Brighton, England on November 12, 1992. From a very young age Maynard and his parents realized that he was musically inclined. He always enjoyed singing other artist’s songs.

When he turned 14 years old Maynard decided to join the video streaming giant Youtube. His first Youtube video was of himself singing “Breathe” by Lee Carr. The rest is history. Since then he’s uploaded tons of cover songs like “Breathe.” He and his friend Anthony Melo pair up on songs from time to time as well. Maynard sings the lyrics while Melo covers and rap in the song. The pair work together perfectly.

After posting videos on Youtube consistently Maynard was finally “discovered.” Pop star Ne-Yo found Maynard on Youtube and reached out to him as a mentor. Shortly after partnering with Ne-Yo Maynard signed to EMI/Parlophone and Turn First management to become a fully-developed artist.

Now his Youtube videos get millions of views each but how much is he making? What is Conor Maynard’s net worth?

Conor Maynard’s Net Worth

Conor Maynard's net worthConor Maynard’s net worth is nothing exciting. The young star hasn’t stacked up much of the money he’s made from Youtube. Justin Bieber, who Maynard is often compared to, has a net worth of over $200 million. Maynard’s net worth sits at about $375,000. However, Maynard is continuing to grow as an artist and become more popular over time so there’s a chance his net worth could explode in the years to come.

For now though the bulk of Maynard’s overall net worth comes from the money he makes through advertising on Youtube. He’s got more than 4 million subscribers on his Youtube channel and, as his fan base grows, he continues to sell more tickets to shows and more singles. Most of Maynard’s singles have sold at least 100,000 copies each.

Conor Maynard doesn’t plan on slowing down any time soon either. This year he plans to continue his work on Youtube as well as perform at a number of live shows. In addition to his cover songs he is planning to release some music of his own in 2017 as well. Each of these will likely continue to contribute to the young man’s net worth.

Maynard is similar to many of the other Youtubers out there except he is still getting his start. Don’t be surprised if you see his name or his wealth rise in the next few years.

Make Artist Jaclyn Hill’s Net Worth May Surprise You

Jaclyn Hill's net worth

How-to and tutorial videos flood my social media timeline daily. It seems like everyone is interested in learning how to cook this, practice this makeup technique or make their own butter. What is even more surprising to me is the amount of cash people are pulling in from these types of videos.

Take makeup artist Jaclyn Hill, for instance. She has been able to make millions of dollars through her makeup tutorial videos and the makeup deals that followed. You’ve got to wonder how much money you can really make though. The 26-year-old makeup artist is a perfect example of vlogger success though.

So, what is Jaclyn Hill’s net worth and how did she get to be so successful from simple how-to videos?

Jaclyn Hill’s Net Worth

One thing separates Jaclyn Hill from other small-time vloggers out there: branding. She was able to make a name for herself, establish a following and land lucrative deals because of it. Her name on a product immediately makes it more valuable. The ability to do this led Jaclyn Hill’s net worth to climb to $1.5 million.

The major sources of Hill’s net worth are:

  • Youtube ads: Hill has 3.2 million Youtube subscribers, more than 260 million views and each of her videos gets about 330,000 clicks. These numbers average out to about $600 per day in Youtube ad revenue for Hill.
  • Makeup deal with Becca Cosmetics: The second part of Hill’s income comes from her deal with Becca Cosmetics. She and the makeup company partnered up on a highlighter set and it sold on at Sephora within hours.

Now that you know what Jaclyn Hill’s net worth is and where is comes from, how was she able to pull it all off?

How Did Jaclyn Hill Become So Successful?

Jaclyn Hill's net worthIn all honesty, Hill became successful because she started her career at a young age and was able to create a following for herself. She started her Youtube channel in 2011 at the age of 21. The focus of the channel was to share how-tos as a professional makeup artist and, as previously discussed, she was able to gain millions of subscribers.

Hill pulls in six figures a year from her Youtube channel alone. That isn’t even taking into consideration the extra cash flow from her husband, drummer Jon Hill, whom she’s been married to since she was 19, or the cash she is raking in from business deals.

Once her Youtube channel blew up, people began to recognize Jaclyn Hill’s name. The more recognizable the name, the more companies want it on their product. After her Youtube channel became so popular Becca Cosmetics jumped on the chance to have Hill’s name on their product. The highlighter palette the 26-year-old produced with the cosmetic company disappeared from the shelves of Sephora within hours of the launch.

The overly positive response to the Becca-Hill partnership has led Hill to even more business opportunities for the young woman moving forward. One thing is for sure though, Jaclyn Hill’s net worth won’t be going anywhere any time soon.

We all know someone who plays video games so much they could make a living doing so but how many people actually make a living that way?

Matthew Haag, better known as Optic Nadeshot, has been able to make a living playing his favorite game, “Call of Duty.” In fact, he’s become a millionaire! So, what is Optic Nadeshot’s net worth and how did he earn so much money just playing video games?

The 24-year-old gaming professional got into competitive gaming at just the right time. Although it is a relatively new concept, he was able to capitalize on it quickly. He began as a competitive amateur playing Halo 2 and, by the time he was 16, he was making his professional gaming debut playing Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. 

Since June 2010, Haag has been a member of Optic Gaming, a community for professional gamers. He took the captain seat of Optic Gaming for a year and during his active time in the community he focused on the Call of Duty games. Each COD game that has been released has been played (and conquered) by Nadeshot.

Just about every gamer out there has played “Call of Duty,” so how did Matt Haag become so successful?

Gamers have logged millions of hours playing the game, making Haag’s skills coveted. He pulls in revenue from his Youtube channel, which has practically 3 million subscribers, as well as cash prizes from competitions in which he participates in throughout the world.

Cash isn’t the only thing Nadeshot is raking in either. He is often times showered with gifts when he goes to gaming conferences. Some of his “perks” include cars and free hotel stays while he’s in the area. Many of the sponsoring companies offer the pro gamer VIP treatment.

Haag’s skills aren’t limited to gaming either. He’s also published a book called “OpTic Gaming: The Making of eSports Champions.” It has been relatively popular among gamers. He’s also moving on to bigger in better things in the years to come.

In 2015, Nadeshot stepped down from the President seat of OpTic Gaming and said that he is making a career change but he won’t be disappearing from the world of gaming. He hopes to become a full-time video game content creator and co-owner of OpTic Gaming. So, instead of playing against Nadeshot you may be playing a game created by the famed gamer in the years to come.
