Online Celebrity Jake Paul’s net worth is an estimated $2.5 million dollars. This celebrity’s net worth is mostly attributed to his success on various social media platforms including Vine, Instagram, and YouTube. This young superstar has a combined following of over ten million followers on different media platforms and runs his own business, Team 10. Jake Paul first got started in the social media business when he begun posting silly, yet entertaining 6-second videos to the discontinued video platform Vine. He quickly gained an audience who loved his quirky humor and outright hilarious short videos. As the years went on Jake Paul had amassed over five million fans on the platform. Jake realized that he could make money off of the 6-second videos he was creating and jumped on the opportunity. All sorts of brands looked to Jake Paul to be a social influence and promote their products to his large audience. Jake quickly picked up many brand deals ranging from $20,000 on the low end to over $100,000 on the high end. All Jake had to do was work with the brand, negotiate a deal that was fitting for both parties, and produce an eye-catching video for the brand. Jake did this for awhile earning hundreds of thousands of dollars off of the videos he posted on Vine. Jake soon realized that he couldn’t put all of his eggs into one basket and he needed to redirect his social media following to other sites such as Instagram and YouTube. After transitioning to other social networks, Vine was shutdown and Jake Paul no longer made 6-second videos for the site. Instead, he garnered massive following on Instagram and YouTube.
Jake Paul’s net worth is not only a few million dollars, it’s also growing the fastest that it ever has been. The online celebrity has had almost double the success on other social media platforms as he had on Vine. His Instagram page now tops over 10 million followers and his YouTube channel has over 5.5 million subscribers. So how does Jake Paul earn his money now? Good question, the celebrity continues to work with brands wanting social media influence, a chunk of his income also comes from YouTube ad revenue, selling merchandise to his following, and his business Team 10. Jake Paul’s YouTube channel is the 4th fastest growing YouTube channel of all time. He is gaining roughly a million new subscribers and 200 million new views each month. These numbers add up to a very nice income for the celebrity and his YouTube ad revenue is an estimated $300,000-$600,000 per month. These figures are not guesses, and actually are a product of a CPM (how much the YouTuber makes per 1000 video views) of $1.5 to $3. This is typically the numbers that most YouTube stars report earning in ad revenue from running advertisements on their channels. Jake Paul has already amassed around a billion views on all of his channels combined, so the celebrity has made $1.5-$3 million dollars off of YouTube let alone.
Sure this may seem like the bulk of the Jake Paul’s net worth, but he actually might earn more from selling his merchandise to his fans. In every YouTube video that Jake uploads to his channel he makes sure to shout out his clothing brand. Analysts speculate that the star earns hundreds of thousands of dollars per month by doing this. Every day over seven million different people watch his videos and even if a fraction of this number buy his merchandise, Jake is still making a ton of money from it. He also seems to be partnered with a T-Shirt company called FanJoy that creates merchandise for several YouTube celebrities. Lastly, Jake Paul started his own business called Team 10 last year, and was able to pitch the idea to investors and generate over $1 million dollars in start-up capital. The business curates social media influencer followings and works with them to create company profits. People speculate that the business model is one in which Jake Paul’s company receives a cut from these social media influencer’s incomes. So the people within Team 10 most likely sign a contract with the company and the company benefits from them by taking a cut of their merchandise sales or ad revenue. Team 10 is growing at a rapid rate and has expanded by bringing in new members to the team of social media influencers. Jake Paul’s net worth will continue to rise and the star will probably become one of Hollywood’s biggest hits yet.
