One of the most successful that i follow is Robert Himler - http://www.youtube.com/roberthimler

He has made alot of money from his videos and mass following, the numbers speak for themselves!

That's impressive.   :thumbsup:

Mind you, he's got a bit to learn from NM2255, our resident specialist in shaky stationary shots of random exhaust pipes.  :doh:

only the big channels earn good money, I know Shmee150 gets paid in excess of $50k a year.
Is that all?? For all that work??

Thats only a rough estimate from what he told me a while ago, for all we know he could be earning close to $100k a year.

Again, is that all?

For the amount of work involved to get those kind of numbers for views, I thought the returns would be worth while.

Himler makes money from razzi. He owns it. YouTube doesn't make him any decent money.

Just stumbled across this post from Allen Wong on Reddit and thought I'd share. Reaffirms what I've always believed about Robert, but probably more so Amy as Rob would more about the cars rather than the wealth until she came along.

Quote
Rob has rich parents and his cars have PA dealer plates on them (i.e. owned by his father's car dealership). I know this because his residence is in FL (i.e. when he gets a license plate, it's a FL plate). The house he lives in is paid for by his parents. His own parents live in a 5,000+ sq ft house and father owned a lime green Gallardo. That's how rich his parents are.
Razzi barely makes $5,000 a year.

I know this, because I co-own Razzi. He makes his money from YouTube and selling his eBook (which I don't recommend). But even that money is barely enough to buy all the cars. If you haven't noticed, he never buys new cars. They are always used, high mileage, and old. And you'll notice that he always sells them within a year or so.

I'm "done with Razzi" in the sense that I don't want anything to do with it. But I'm still under contract with them, because they still haven't paid me for my work. All I got paid was $500, and that was the $500 I invested into the company. In other words, I was tricked into coding the app for them for free. And it was an app that took months to code.

Allen Wong is a self-made app millionaire that owns the Azure blue Aventador you've probably seen on YouTube.

Might be all true but IMHO bad form on Allen's part
