How did Trevor Moran Make His Money & Wealth?
Born on September 30, 1998 in Poway, California, Trevor Moran is the son of Tim and Nicole Moran. Growing up, he loved to sing, as music played a large role in his life. In 2008, when he was ten years old, he made his first step into the social media world by creating his own Youtube channel. Shortly afterwards, he began uploading videos of himself dancing to various hit songs at Apple stores, clips that soon went viral on the web, garnering him thousands of subscribers.
Having said that, it wasn’t until he was featured on Fox’s hit competition series, The X Factor in 2012 that he first gained widespread attention. Trying his hand out at the show, Moran performed a rendition of Sexy and I Know It by LMFAO during the auditions; it later netted him four votes from the judges’ panel which successfully sent him into the next round. At just thirteen years old, the California native was one of the youngest contestants there at the try outs.
From there however, things didn’t go as smoothly as he’d hoped- prior to taking the stage during the live auditions in San Francisco, he passed out. Although the cause was unclear at the time, Moran has since revealed that the culprit might have been an energy drink that he had consumed moments prior (e.g. too much caffiene). Despite putting his best efforts into the competition, the teen was eventually eliminated during The X Factor‘s Boot Camp Stage.
In spite of the setback, Moran continued forwards with his music areer. In 2013, he came out with his debut single titled, Someone; he later followed up with another track called, The Dark Side that December. The following year, the singer released two additional records titled, Echo and XIAT.
On December 9, 2014, his debut extended play dubbed XIATwas released through the Gotham Alpha label. Released as a digital download, it contained five titles- all written based on his own personal experiences in life including XIAT, Now or Never, Slay, and Echo. Since then, the lead single has received over 1.4 million views on Vevo. Praised by fans, it topped the US Heatseekers chart and settled at number 17 on the US Independent Albums Chart.
Continuing with his burgeoning career as a recording artist, Moran later released the singles, I Wanna Fly, Let’s Roll, and Steal the Show in 2015, the first two of which were taken from his second EP. The extended play titled, Alive, was independently released on January 22, 2016. Released through iTunes, much like his earlier effort, it boasted five songs including Let’s Roll, Got Me Feelin’ Like, I Wanna Fly, Alive, and Cold. Another chart topper, it peaked at number one on the Top Heatseekers Chart and number 10 on the Top Independent Albums Chart, surpassing that of his previous EP.
On top of what he’s earned from his music, Moran has another stream of revenue- Youtube. Since he first created his channel in 2008, it has amassed over 1.3 million subscribers and has received more than 72 million video views. Known for posting various music videos and vlogs, his most popular upload to date, Exposiing the X Factor has since been viewed over 3.2 million times. Some of his top videos include Apple Store Dance to Check it Out!!, Someone – Trevor Moran, How to Sing, and Ghost Hunting with Shawn Dawnson.
Assuming that he’s part of the Google partnership program, he’d be able to earn upwards of a few dollars per 1,000 monetized views by displaying ads on his videos. Seeing as how he has accumulated over 72.8 million total views, he would have made at least $50,000 through his Youtube channel to date.
Going by the statistics provided by Socialblade, it would appear that his Youtube channel has been growing at a steady rate since early 2014. Not only does he gain a few hundred new subscribers a day, but he also receives anywhere from 30K to 80K video views on a daily basis. Considering this rapid growth, it wouldn’t be surprising for his earnings from Google to increase further in the next few years.
