RocketJump (Freddie Wong) Net Worth – $2 Million
RocketJump is a weird hybrid studio/production company that strives to bring its viewers fun genuine entertainment ranging from TV shows, feature films, short films, live streams, tutorials or anything in between. It was created by Freddie Wong, an American filmmaker, musician, special effects artist and competitive gamer. He has an estimated net worth of $2 million. Most of his videos are tributes to video games like Portal, Battlefield 3 and Mario Bros.
Freddie runs three other channels named Rocket Jump 2 which contains behind the scene videos, a podcast called Story Break and RocketJump Film School which teaches fans how to become professional filmmakers. In 2015, RockeyJump partnered with Hulu to make a behind the scenes documentary series titled RocketJump: The Show.
How Much Money Does RocketJump Earn On YouTube?
The channel has over 7.8 million subscribers as of late 2017 and has accumulated over 1.5 billion views so far. It is able to get an average of 440,000 views per day from different sources. This should generate an estimated revenue of around $800 per day ($300,000 a year) from the ads that appear on the videos.
YouTubers get paid between $2 – $5 per 1000 monetized views after YouTube takes its cut. Monetized views range from 40% – 60% of the total views. All these are influenced by several factors like device played on, the location of the viewer, ad inventory, how many ads there are on a video, how many people skip the ads, ad engagement etc.
There is also a program known as Google Preferred where deep-pocketed companies can target ads on the top 5% most popular content. The ad rates here are higher than normal. Apart from ads, YouTubers also generate extra from YouTube Red viewers who pay a monthly fee to view premium content on YouTube plus watch videos without ads. Here they get paid based on watch time on their videos. The longer the viewers watch their videos, the more money they earn.
