Creators like Zoe Sugg, Alfie Deyes, Tyler Oakley, and PewDiePie all owe the start of their careers to their once-unknown YouTube channels. Now, they make a living off of creating videos, and they get paid a ton of money for content.
PewDiePie - $12 Million
PewDiePie is one of the most subscribed channels that isn't managed by YouTube itself. He got his start by streaming gameplay walkthroughs and highlight reels, but he stands out for his weird sense of humor. He makes between $43K and $694K a month, with a staggering net worth of $12 million.
