Just because of her huge popularity online, it is estimated that she earns quite a lot of money. She never disclosed her earnings online.

Probably she wants to keep it as a secret.

However, it’s quite inspiring to see how a teenage girl can build such a huge following online. I have just got to know about this amazing girl from Business Insider. Looking at her earning potential, I was surprised and you may too.

However, I found out that she started her journey at the age of 13. So it has been a long time now. As I learnt online, she graduated last year and lives with her parents in a quite northern California city.

How Much Money Does She Really Earn Online?

How bethany with fashionable dressesAs I said earlier, it’s not clear how much she actually earns from her YouTube videos. Because she doesn’t disclose it online and of course, it’s not what she does. So we can’t expect her talking about her earnings. But from a few sources familiar with YouTube advertising, it is estimated that she earns around $US 40,000 ($A45,615) a month.

Here is an article I posted already about how someone can make money from YouTube. Reading this article would help you understand how much she could earn.

Basically, YouTube shows advertisements on your videos as long as you are a member of YouTube partnership program. If your YouTube channel is highly popular, you can apply to be a member of this program. Google shares with you a portion of their advertising revenues generated from your videos.

Although YouTube doesn’t disclose how much it pays its publishers. But it is assumed that an average partner earns around $5 for every 1000 ad impressions.

So you can imagine how much money you can generate if your videos are viewed by millions of YouTube viewers every month.

Is She Really an Inspiration For Us?

Of course, it makes us think twice when we hear that an 18 year old teenage girl is earning such a huge amount of money which is more than the average income of most people in the world. It is definitely an inspiration for everyone who is trying to gain huge internet popularity.

What makes me think is how this little girl started doing it at the age of 13, recorded high quality HD videos and uploaded to YouTube. Just a few years ago, it was difficult to record HD quality videos and then edit it.

Really this girl was quite smart, I must say.

But was the girl really smart enough? Or some really smart people made these tools usable for really dumb people?

Who to give this credit for creating such awesome technologies that makes under-educated youngsters build their fortune online?

Who to give the credit for helping these youngsters enjoy stardom by just shopping and showing off what they bought with the money they don’t own.

I know that it is not easy to answer these questions.

But I must say that she was smart enough at her early ages. She knew what would work and what wouldn’t. I also can’t say that she is uneducated or under-educated. Because she is the person who has built such a large following that almost every internet marketer looks for.

And we can’t forget that it’s not easy to be successful on YouTube.

She Is a True Inspiration.
