How did BigNik Make His Money and Wealth?
Born on September 11, 1998, in Boca Raton, Florida, BigNik was diagnosed with a rare form of dwarfism as a young child, a condition that has left him blind in one eye. Growing up, he lived in Naperville, Illinois, for a few years before moving to California, where he attended Torrey Pines High School. As a young teen, he required several surgeries on his hips, legs, and ankles. In order to distract himself from the pain, he decided to make videos for Vine in 2013.
More successful than he had imagined, he had amassed more than 2.9 million followers by the time Vine closed down in 2017. During the few years that he was active on the platform, he collaborated with many fellow stars including Elizabeth Kosy, Gabs Erwin, Allicatt, and Jake Paul.
Not long after he joined Vine, BigNik had also launched his own YouTube channel. After the former shut down, he continued to make videos on the site, with a focus on vlogs. As of 2018, he has accumulated more than 983,000 subscribers with over 64 million lifetime views. Today, some of the most viewed uploads include We Need to Talk…(3.3 million views), The Truth About My Galaxy Eye (3.3 million views), and I Visited MY Old High School and Got Bullied (3.1 million views).
With the audience that he has on YouTube, chances are, he has been monetizing his channel. As you probably already know, many content creators have chosen to display ads on their videos in the recent years, in order to earn ad revenue. As a Google partner, users are able to earn some amount of income depending on the number of views; in general, this amount tends to range from $2 to $5 per one thousand views.
Given that this is the case for BigNik, and that a less than half of his total view count (ie. 64 million) have been monetized, he would have yielded earnings of $50,000 to $120,000 before the website’s cut. Naturally, as his following continues to grow, this figure is likely to increase as well.
Aside from YouTube, he can also be found on other platforms such as Instagram and Twitter.
