The Sidemen channel is run by a group of seven British YouTubers with a net worth of £45 million. The group have built up a huge following uploading commentary clips, vlogs and challenges. Considering how large the group is, it’s interesting to see how much each member is worth.
3 Main Income Sources:
- Sponsorship deals – big brands are keen to advertise with the Sidemen due to their large audience. The group’s fans are mostly aged 15-25 and based in the UK, they haven’t cracked America yet! Depending on the type of promotion, the group could easily make six figures for an advertising deal. Anything less and it’s not worth it for them.
- YouTube ads – these are the ads that appear before videos and can be a big earner if your viewing figures are in the millions. According to Socialblade.com, the Sidemen’s YouTube channel earns between £189,500 to £3 million per year.
- Merchandise sales – the clothing range is another cash cow for the boys and earns them about £2 million per year.
All of the revenue generated is shared equally among the group. Outside of the Sidemen channel, each member has their own personal YouTube channels to make extra income. Some of them have set up businesses and report profits to the Companies House in the UK. Based on this financial data, we calculated the net worth of each member.
