David Dobrik is one of YouTube’s biggest stars at the moment, raking in millions of viewers, and with it, thousands in revenue. However, how much is he actually making?

David Dobrik has made a name for himself with his vlogs, and with those incredulous views comes insane advertising revenue. While it’s not the most lucrative way to make money off YouTube, ad revenue projections provide a nice floor to base a content creator’s income.

With everyone pondering, Logan Paul took a punt at how much the popular vlogger has been making off YouTube, and the figures are even bigger than most people could ever imagine.

How much does David Dobrik make off YouTube?

During his October 28 Impaulsive podcast, Logan Paul rattled off some figures about how much money Dobrik is making on YouTube through ad revenue alone. While it’s not the only source of income he has, it’s the easiest to calculate, as it all follows the same algorithm. 

“I just looked at his vlog channel, and he’s popping off like an average of 10 million views per blog, which I think makes him the most successful vlogger in the history of YouTube” Paul said. “I don’t think he’s in Google Preferred, but if he was, that could be $20,000-$40,000 per video.” 

Segment starts at 1:20.

Google Preferred’s system gives advertisers recommendations to access the most popular YouTube channels among young people. Usually, advertisers want their products placed on family-friendly content, but Dobrik doesn’t fit that bill.

While that results in a pretty hefty pay cut, the amount of money Dobrik is making per vlog is still extraordinary, going by Paul’s estimates. “My guess is, per video, that he’s making between $5,000-$20,000 just in ad revenue,” Paul said.

Dobrik makes on average around six videos a month, which can rake him up to $120,000 every month by Paul’s estimates. That’s disregarding directly-sponsored content reaching his 14 million strong subscriber base, which would be worth thousands more.

On top from the mega money Dobrik is making, Paul has nothing but praise for the vloggers’ content, being the first to highlight how much of a fan he is of his work.

“10 million plus views per vlog? That’s insane. At my peak, I was at eight million, but then again I was daily. His content is so good though man, I’m just glad he’s doing good.”

While the numbers Paul pulled up about Dobrik’s revenue from YouTube is just an estimate, it’s probably in the ballpark. If you combine that $120,000 of ads a month with his sponsors, merch, and other revenue streams, he will easily be making millions every year.

His audience is a dream for advertisers, who usually target impressionable young audiences to use their products. However, those people wouldn’t be watching if the content wasn’t up to scratch, so Dobrik has done something right to nail down the YouTube formula.

Charli D’Amelio under fire for complaining about 95 million followers

TikTok queen Charli D’Amelio is known for having the most followers out of any other creator on the viral video app — but it seems that reaching less than 100 million in a year isn’t quite cutting it for the social media star.

2020 has certainly been a wildly successful year for miss D’Amelio; she surpassed longtime TikTok queen Loren Gray in March, becoming the platform’s most popular content creator in the process.

However, her winstreak wasn’t over, by far: Charli skyrocketed from 41 million followers to 99 million by November, marking an unprecedented rise to fame for just about any influencer.

Despite being on the precipice of a TikTok record, it seems that Charli was hoping to score the coveted 100 million follower mark within a year of hitting one million. However, it seems that time has passed on, leaving her craving for more time.

She spoke about the situation during a YouTube video with makeup artist James Charles on November 16, where she appeared to jokingly complain about not reaching the coveted goal.

“I wish I had more time!” she exclaimed. “Imagine if I hit 100 mil a year after hitting a mil.”

“Was the 95 [million] not enough for you?” Charles joked.

“I was just saying like, even numbers,” Charli laughed, sticking out her tongue in the camera.

Dixie D’Amelio attempted to quickly end the video as if on cue, with Charli following suit, marking for a humorous end to a discussion that not many viewers found all too funny.

“It’s so stuck up to act like 95 million isn’t enough,” one commenter wrote of the conversation. “She should be happy, she has her whole life set for her.”

“She deserves to be humbled, I can’t stand her,” another chimed in.

“It’s very obviously a joke on James’s part, but still, she’s more famous at 16-17 than most people will ever be in their lifetimes,” another added. “And being a famous teen can inflate your ego something fierce.”

Charles has since spoken out about the situation and clarified that his question was, indeed, just a joke — but in spite of the obvious humor, Charli’s privileged position and follower comments are leaving more than a few critics a bit burnt.
