Tristan Jass Net Worth – $500,000
Tristan Jass is a young YouTuber and basketball point guard based in Wisconsin, United States. He has an estimated net worth of $500,000. His content is mainly basketball videos whereby he showcases his skills like trick shots, casual scrimmages and many more. His inspiration to start the channel was when an Instagram video of him sending his high school teacher sprawling with a well timed cross went viral. It was covered by major sports outlets like ESPN, The Bleacher Report and SBNation. Jass wanted to retain the audience.
Jass had to forgo a college basketball sponsorship so that he could be a content creator. This is because it would mean he had to shut down his accounts since at the time NCCA forbade student competitors from profiting off their own names, images and athletic abilities. He had been working to get a basketball scholarship ever since he was young. His social media popularity blew up right at the time when he got a couple of Division 1 offers. He chose a YouTube career instead.
How Much Money Does Tristan Jass Earn On YouTube?
The channel has over 2 million subscribers as of 2020 and has accumulated over 200 million views so far. It is able to get an average of 150,000 views per day from different sources. This should generate an estimated revenue of $750 per day ($270,000 a year) from the ads that appear on the videos.
YouTubers get paid $2 – $7 per 1000 monetized views after YouTube takes its cut. Monetized views range from 40% – 80% of the total views. All these are influenced by several factors like device played on, time of the year, the location of the viewer, ad inventory, how many ads there are on a video, how many people skip the ads, type of advertisement, ad engagement, type of content etc. The cost of an ad view is based on an auction between advertisers based on views. Advertisers have to bid a minimum of $0.01 per view.
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.
Tristan makes extra income through sponsorship deals from giant brands like Footlocker, SeatGeek, Sour Patch Kids etc.
