Vlogging may not seem like the most professional career choice, but for the ones who have become most successful, it has changed their lives for the better. But, How do they make money?
Well, vloggers are approached by companies everyday to promote their products in their vlogs or on social media. They also earn revenue from google ads shown on youtube. Vloggers also get paid around $2.00 for every thousand views. So for Zoella, who gets around 1 million views per video, and posts once or twice a week, each video brings in about $2,000 dollars (plus any advertisements she is doing).
