David Dobrik on YouTube

If you don't know who David Dobrik, He is a YouTuber personality. He found early success on the video-sharing platform Vine, before starting his vlog on his YouTube channel in 2015.

David Dobrik found early success on YouTube and has become a success story having a Net Worth of $30 Million. But most of it doesn't even come from YouTube, he has a successful Merchandise business which makes him at least $250,000 to $1 Million every month and has worked with big brands such as EA Sports, Seat Geek, Honey etc. with all that he recently bought a $9.5 Million mansion, previous he owned a $2.5 Million Meditrian style home.

If you ever watch his vlogs closely all his videos are 4:20 seconds, David told about this on an interview that he doesn't like long forms of video and found them boring and the other you will notice is that every vlog has copyrighted music in it even the intro of vlogs starts with Love You When I’m Drunk by Mika (Playlist of songs he uses). This is the main reason why David Dobrik’s most of the earning doesn't come from YouTube, He told in an interview that in a month he used to earn 350,000 just from 60 Million views but now after YouTube got strict with copyright rules, he barely earns $2000 with 300 Million+ views.

Unfortunately, David stopped vlogging because of the going virus as his content requires him to go out of the house with his friends, He switched to Tik Tok where he gained over 20 Million followers in just a few months and he still uploads his Podcasts “Views”. Since his absence on Youtube days, there are many YouTubers such as Logan Paul & Alex Warren who are trying to copy David’s vlogging style like making short forms of video.

I think even if there are million people copying David, He would still be number one because of his sweet personality and his lovely friends or the vlog squad.

Hope you liked the article ;)
