Roman Atwood is one of the most successful YouTube stars. He joined the video site in 2009, amassing millions of subscribers in the process. In 2013, he leveraged his fame and popularity to create a brand new YouTube channel which has now grown to be more popular than the first.
Roman Bernard Atwood was born on May 28, 1983 in Millersport Ohio. His love for making videos started way back in high school. In 2006, he produced a series of DVDs called “The Nerd Herd” which he sold at the Warped Tour – a traveling rock festival.
The prank channel is rarely updated but still gets millions of views owing to the ‘evergreen’ nature of the videos. It has accumulated more than 9.9 million subscribers.
Here’s a funny one about ‘flashing’ children.
According to Socialblade, this channel still gets an average of 360,000 video views daily. His subscribers also grow by roughly 5,000 a day. Those numbers are mind blowing considering he has not posted a video on this channel for nearly a year.
On his second channel – RomanAtwoodVlogs, he almost religiously posts a new video everyday. Fans and subscribers have in the process rewarded him with over 2 billion video views in total.
Here he is announcing they’re having a baby.
This channel recently overtook his first in subscriber count and currently stands at 10.2 million.
The daily video views are quite impressive. Social blade puts the figure at 5.2 million daily views across all videos. Above that, he gets about 20,000 new subscribers each and every day.
How Much Does Rowan Atwood Make on YouTube
Based on the known figures i.e. the video views, it is quite easy to estimate the amount of money Rowan makes from his two channels.
His total average daily video views is 5.5 million.
Most of his videos on the bigger channel are longer than 10 minutes, which translates to a higher revenue per thousand views (CPM). A study of various YouTuber’s earnings has put this figure at between $2 and $4. (Videos shorter than 5 minutes generally have a CPM of below $2).
However, for various reasons, not all YouTube views are monetizable. It can be because the user has installed ad-blocking plugins, or is viewing on unsupported devices, or there was simply no ad to serve. On average, about 60% of YouTube views are monetized.
That lowers Rowan Atwood’s monetized views to 3.3 million daily. Assuming he makes $3 for every 1000 views, his daily income from direct YouTube/Adsense ads is $9,900. We can adjust that to $10,000.
That puts his monthly income from this source at $300,000. Around $200,000 after tax deductions.
Calculating the net worth of web properties is not a exact science, but generally, the monthly income is multiplied by 20. With that logic, Rowan’s YouTube channels are worth $4 million.
However, like many YouTube stars, Rowan Atwood has other sources of income.
He has created a pretty successful merchandize business under the brand name ‘Smile More‘. He sells things like backpacks, T-shirts, notebooks, bracelets etc. For obvious reasons, it would be difficult to get his sales numbers, but from what we’ve learnt from other YouTubers, a merchandize business is usually just as big or bigger than the channels themselves.
We can therefore estimate that his merchandize business is worth the same $4 million his channels are. Therefore…
