YouTube provides anyone with a decent enough channel the opportunity to make some money via the partnership program, and quite a few have gone on to make a living from creating videos.

Even if you’re not into video gaming, you may have heard about PewDiePie because of the fact that he has the most subscribers in YouTube’s history, with close to 42 million subs behind his name. With that many followers, it’s easy to imagine how much money he must be raking in every month.

Getting back on point, here is the list of YouTube’s top 10 earners. Note that the figures here are estimates, and are gross profits (still subjecti to YouTube’s 45% earnings cut along with other taxes and production costs). Also take into consideration that this ONLY represents the YouTube earnings figure and not what they make via other endorsements, sponsorships, and what not.

Without further ado, the top 10 sorted by 2015’s earnings (along with their respective subscription count).

  1. PewDiePie: $12 million, 41 million subscribers
  2. Smosh: $8.5 million, 21 million subscribers
  3. Fine Brothers: $8.5 million, 14 million subscribers
  4. Lindsey Stirling: $6 million, 7 million subscribers
  5. Rhett & Link: $4.5 million, 4 million subscribers
  6. KSI: $4.5 million, 11 million subscribers
  7. Michelle Phan: $3 million, 8 million subscribers
  8. Lilly Singh: $2.5 million, 7 million subscribers
  9. Roman Atwood: $2.5 million, 8 million subscribers
  10. Rosanna Pansino: $2.5 million, 5 million subscribers

Not bad at all! Getting to where these folks at definitely isn’t an overnight process, but if you’ve got that knack for creating fun videos (in your respective field of choice) and can work some Sony Vegas or Final Cut magic, then maybe you might be able to cash in on the YouTube Partneship program as well even if it’s not in the millions like these guys.
