How did Lance Stewart Make His Money & Wealth?
Born on June 20, 1996 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Lance Stewart was raised in the city of Franklinville, New Jersey, to which he moved to with his family as a young child. Of Italian and Irish descent, not much else has been revealed about his childhood, much to the dismay of fan. Interested in making videos as a young teen, he eventually turned it into something bigger when his older sister, Sabrina Stewart, introduced him to Vine in 2013; he was seventeen years old at the time.
Creating an account for himself on the video-sharing platform, Stewart began recording a number of six-second clips, which he later posted onto his page. With his natural talent for shooting videos, it didn’t take long for him to have accumulated thousands of loops. Although his fame continued to climb steadily from there, it wasn’t until he posted the Vine It’s My Money and i Need It Now, that he became an overnight star. A viral sensation, it quickly received more than 800K revenues and 900K likes on Vine.
Continuing to build his online presence, Stewart eventually started to collaborate with fellow Vine stars, for greater exposure. At one point, he teamed up with Marcus Johns to create the clip, I’m a Wizard- a huge success, it racked up thousands of views in just a few day’s time. By the time Vine closed in January 2017, the celebrity had over 6 million fans- making him one of the top users in the community. With the audience that he had, it’s highly likely that he was also approached by brands for various endorsement opportunities.
In addition to Vine, he’s also become hugely success on Youtube. Since the first launched his channel back in February 2014, Stewart has accumulated over 3.4 subscribers and more than 672 million total views across his videos. Assuming that he’s capitalized his popularity through Google’s partnership program, he would earn a set amount for displaying ads on his content. On average, the site pays its users upwards of $5 per 1,000 monetized views.
Given that 40% of his total views are monetized by Youtube, he would have earned at least $530,000 from ad revenue alone. To date, his most popular video, I Cut My Finger Off! Real Life Fruit Ninja Gone Wrong! has received over 14.7 million views. A few of his other top hits include We Shot a Porn Video?!?, My Girlfriend Shows Her Nipples on Camera!?!, The Ouija Board Challenge *Do Not Attempt*, and I Got the Surgery…They Had to Amputate My Hand?!?. Combined, these titles have been streamed more than 34 million times.
Judging from statistics provided by Socialblade, Stewart’s Youtube channel has been growing at a rate of 3K to 5K subscribers per day. From July 2016 to July 2017, his follower count has jumped from approximately 632K to 3.34 million- that’s an increase of over 2.7 million! As far as his videos are concerned, they receive anywhere from 1 to 2 million views on a daily basis.
In 2015, it was announced that UTA- the Hollywood talent agency, had signed Stewart on as one of their new clients; others that joined the roster at the same time include Skyy John, and Rahat Hossain, both of whom have millions of subscribers on Youtube. In the past, the company has also represented the likes of Flula Borg, Toby Turner, among others.
With over 4.8 million followers on Instagram, Stewart is also a popular celebrity on the photo/video-sharing app. A regular user on the platform, his posts easily gain hundreds of thousands of likes and views each. A social media influencer- that is, someone with a wide audience, it wouldn’t surprise us to know if he had teamed up with companies for sponsorship deals, in a similar fashion as with Vine. As you probably already know, it’s not uncommon for brands to pay celebrities thousands of dollars for a mention or product promotion.
Like many celebrities, Stewart has even launched his own merchandise shop on the web. Appropriately called Lance210, fans are able to purchase an array of items from clothing (e.g. tank tops, shorts, yoga pants, hoodies) to various accessories (e.g. caps, pop sockets, fidget spinners, towels). In fact just recently, a summer collection consisting of logo tanks, and shorts was released through the store. Want to take a look at the selection for yourself? You can do so at lance210.com.
In terms of public appearances, he attended an event at the House of Blues Sunset Strip in West Hollywood, California in June 14, 2014.
To sum up, it’s clear that Stewart earned most of his $2.5 million fortune from his success as a social media star. Not only did he make a name for himself on Vine, but he’s since also reached millions on fans on Instagram and Youtube, the latter of which is most probably his greatest source of income. Will his wealth continue to grow over the next few years? Our guess is yes.
