But over the years, he cracked the YouTube Algorithm and over time gained millions of subscribers.
Mr Beast Net Worth as of 2020
The current net worth of Mr. Beast is $4M. The main source of his earnings is the YouTube Partnership Program, Affiliate Marketing, Sponsors and such. It is estimated that his monthly earnings are around $230k – $250k.
Born on May 7, 1998, he was raised in eastern North Carolina in the city of Greenville and graduated at the age of 16. He was raised by his mother and lived with his brother. He dropped out of college after just 2 weeks as he wanted to pursue his career on YouTube. This decision was supported by his mother who wanted to see him happy.
Back in February 2012, Mr. Beast posted his first video. But it wasn’t till 2015 that he gained some attention. The main attention grabber for his channel was the gameplay that he was constantly posting.
He gained viewers and subscribers but still, that wasn’t enough for him. After some years of gameplay posting, he involved a lot of money in his videos. The first pinnacle video was “The worst intros on YouTube”. By mid-2016, he had reached the 30,000 subscribers mark.
The big show started after this when he started posting donations such as “Giving A Random Homeless Man $10,000”. Later he revealed that Quidd (an app) was sponsoring such projects. Even though he was only a frontman, these types of videos gained him nationwide recognition.
After some time of donation videos, he had been successful in generating traffic of millions on his channel. But now he started posting random videos such as Building mansion using cardboard boxes, reading the entire dictionary in one sitting, and one of his most recent, surprising my girlfriend with 100,000 roses.
The technique turned out to be odd yet practical. His channel is not even niche specified, but the videos he posts are eye-catching for the viewers. He made videos out of the box and they always turn out to be interesting for the subscribers.
The randomization of his channel proved fruitful for his career on this platform. Once he had been recognized by a decent size of a community, he didn’t stop making donation videos.
Mr. Beast was nominated in the 11th Shorty Awards for the title of the best vlogger of the year. But unfortunately for his fans, he did not win.
The Past 5-Year Journey
When summarizing his journey over the past 5 years, we can start with the “worst intros” series started in 2015, because that was the first time, he started to gain attention.
This was followed by the count to 100,000 he did right after college as he was bored and knew that such a thing was the first of its kind and would surely go viral. He realized that everyday content can be presented in such a way that it provides audience retention.
The next similar project was spinning a fidget spinner for 24 hours straight. The next milestone for Mr. Beast was the 1M subscriber mark in November 2017. By the end of 2018, he had donated $-1M as a result of his donation videos. This earned him the title of the Biggest Philanthropist on YouTube.
This fact has to be taken into consideration that this huge sum was possible only due to brand deals that funded the videos. In November 2019, Jimmy Donaldson was accused of giving fake giveaways as a critic spotted fake bills in his video.
To this, he replied that this was to abridge the risk of people claiming the money and that he exchanged them with original cheques. In mid-2019, Mr. Beast officially announced on Instagram that he was dating Maddy Spidell.
Till now he has been posting weird and outlandish stunts which are earning him millions of views. At the moment he has 30.7 million subscribers, 692 videos and a total of approximately 4.7 Billion views. Jimmy Donaldson has proved that you can do a lot for others while benefiting yourself as well. He has pulled off a substantially healthy trend of donative challenges that help to improve the financial conditions of those in need in a jiffy and the most unexpected ways.
He has made it clear that consistency and hard work pays off but you just need to have the right amount of passion and just a little conviction to pull it off.
