“YouTube is the most popular nanny in the world,” said Eyal Baumel, head of Yoola, a company specializing in digital media and marketing on YouTube. This statement was confirmed by recently published data from the Pew Research Center, which show that 81% of parents allow their children under the age of 11 to watch YouTube. As a result, content intended for children is becoming more popular and watched, and their authors – richer.

PewDiePie is number one in Europe, which is also the world’s leading YouTuber with 106 million subscribers to its channel.

Anastasia Radzinskaya’s monthly income is estimated at $ 7.73 million, followed by YouTuber A4 with monthly revenue of over $ 5 million. The third is a gamer jacksepticeye who earns about $ 1 million a month and has 24.7 million followers.
