Wengie’s Net Worth 2018 – $1 Million
How did Wengie Make Her Money & Wealth?
Born on January 9, 1986, in Guangzhou, China, Wengie launched her Youtube channel, Wengie (inspired by her Chinese name) in 2012. While she initially uploaded beauty-related videos, she later branched out to include fashion and DIY content. Incredibly popular, she became one of the fastest-growing stars on the site in 2016, having gained over 4 million subscribers in just a few years.
As of 2018, she has amassed over 10 million subscribers with more than 789 million views across her channel, making her the second most popular Youtuber from Australia. To date, her most popular video, DIY Edible School Supplies, uploaded in September 2016, has generated over 40 million hits.
With the fan base that she has, how much does she make on Youtube? According to sources, her primary channel receives upwards of 2 million views a day; this roughly translates to ~$3,500 of ad revenue per day. Doing the math, this works out to be a little over $1 million a year- and this is just from one of her Youtube channels!
Aside from her main account, she also has a secondary channel called WengieVlogs, which as its name implies, features her vlogs. Though not as popular as the former per se, it still has a decent following with over one million subscribers. Assuming that it’s also monetized, she would easily make over $100 a day from her vlogs.
Aside from her Youtube channels, what other sources of income does she have? For one thing, she’s also a singer with a couple of singles to her name. Last year, she released two songs, Baby Believe Me, and Oh I Do, the former of which reached number 6 on the Chinese record charts.
