As of August 2017, her Youtube channel has amassed well over 10.4 million subscribers- and counting! A multi-talented gal, she’s appeared on television severals times and has even released her own single, Need You Right Now back in 2014.

Where did the majority of this fortune come from? How many sources of income does she have? To answer these questions, let’s take a closer look at what she’s accomplished over the past few years.
Bethany Mota’s Net Worth 2017 – $2.5 Million
How did Bethany Mota Make Her Money & Wealth?
Born on November 7, 1995 in Merced County, California, Bethany Mota grew up with her older sister, Brittany (who also happens to be in a Youtuber) in Central Valley. Of Portugese and Mexican descent, she attended public school for a few years during her early childhood prior to being homeschooled. At one point during her early teens, she took up both acting and dance briefly.
In 2009, Bethany- like many other teens, decided to launch her own Youtube channel. Originally intended as a means of escaping the stress that she received from bullying, she eventually started to upload a number of haul videos, in which she shows off her various purchases to viewers on the site. Surprisingly popular, her subscriber count quickly began to climb with each additional upload. Before long, she had reached her first milestone- one million fans.
As haul videos grew more popular online, retailers started to use it for marketing. A Youtube star with a healthy audience, the 21-year-old has recovered a fair share of promotional offers; not only that, but she’s received many gift cards and free cosmetic items over the years. Having said that, the majority of her revenue comes from advertising.
Since the launch of her main channel Macbarbie07 in 2009, her following has well surpassed the 10 million mark; across her hundreds of videos, she has received over 942 million views as of August 2017. Considering her popularity, it’s a no-brainer that she’s been monetizing her content using Google’s partnership program. By displaying ads on one’s videos, the site pays its users upwards of $5/1,000 views on average. Assuming that Bethany receives at least $2 per 1,000 monetized views, then she would have already made ~$700,00 from her account so far.
In addition to her main channel, Bethany also has a secondary account- BethanysLife, in which she posts vlogs of various events from her life. While not as popular as Macbarbie07 pe se, it has managed to amass over 2.2 million subscribers with 72 million video views. Assuming that she’s also been monetizing this channel, it would have yielded her at least $50,000 so far.
In 2013, Bethany launched her own lines of accessories, perfume and clothing at Aeropostale, a retailer of casual apparel. A collection in which she retains full creative control, new items are announced directly on her social media accounts. How many 21 year old olds do you know have their own line of clothing?
As far as other endeavours go, she also went on a tour in 2014, in which she traveled across the country to meet her fans. That same year, Bethany also made her music debut with her debut single, Need You Right Now featuring Mike Tompkins. Although the song didn’t chart in the US, it did reach among the top 40 in Denmark. As of August 2017, its official music video has received over 4.1 million views on Youtube.
Regarding her music career, Bethany confirmed back in 2015 that a studio album was possibly in the works. Although there haven’t been any updates on said project since, she eventually did go on to release, Be Who You Wanna Be– an original song that she’d written, in 2015 via Youtube.
On television, the star took part in the 19th season of Dancing with the Stars in 2014, where she was paired up with professional dancer, Derek Hough. Although they managed to reach the finals, they ultimately ended up finishing in fourth place. As far as other TV appearances go, she’s also been featured in The View (2014), Live! With Kelly and Michael (2014), Project Runaway (2014), The Insider (2014), and Not Too Deep with Grace Helbig (2017), among others.
On June 13, 2017, Bethany published her memoir, Make Your Mind Up: My Guide to Finding Your Own Style, Life and Motavation!.
Currently it is estimated that the twenty something year old has a net worth of $2.5 million. Drawing from everything that’s been mentioned above, it would appear that most of this fortune came directly from the success of her Youtube channels. Having said that, it’s obvious that her income is also supplemented by what she makes from her various other endeavours (e.g. clothing line, TV appearances, tours, etc).
