TikTok has quickly become a popular platform for influencers to make a fast profit, but there’s a new group of wealthy children who are making substantial money off the app – and many of them are under the age of 10.
While many of us toil away in our 9-5 office jobs, a new generation of kid influencers is making hundreds of thousands of dollars for just one post.
Sixth-highest-earning YouTube star in 2021
Anastasia Radzinskaya, a seven-year-old YouTube superstar, has a totally different existence. Anastasia, the social media phenomenon, is rated seventh on Forbes’ list of the richest YouTubers for 2020, with revenues of $18.5 million.
According to The Sun, the Russian teen uses TikTok and Instagram to post videos of her own music and activities with her father. Nastya, as she is known to her fans, is reported to have made $28 million last year from her films about her family vacations, best pals, and responsibility teachings.
With 250 million subscribers, she is the most popular kid YouTuber on the planet. She’s also the winner of eight YouTube Awards and has 428,000 Instagram followers. She is also the first and only YouTube kid celebrity to receive four Diamond Play Buttons. Nastya is predicted to make 265 times the Russian average wage of $165,030 each month, according to experts at money.co.uk.
Nastya is the sixth-highest-earning YouTube celebrity in the world for 2021, according to Forbes‘ newest ranking of the platform’s ten wealthiest content producers. She is the only woman on the list, and she has been for the past three years.
Nastya raked in a whopping $28 million last year
Nastya was diagnosed with cerebral palsy (which proved out to be a misdiagnosis) when she was born in January 2014, and doctors informed her parents that she would never be able to talk.
Her mother Anna ran a wedding business at the time, earning roughly 300,000 Russian Rubles ($3,993) each month, while her father Sergey ran a construction firm that was somewhat more successful but far less reliable.
Her parents both left their businesses in 2015 to start the Like Nastya YouTube channel, surviving on their savings until it became successful. They created the channel to help Anastasia cope with her diagnosis and to urge her to speak, walk, and enjoy herself.
The number of people who watched her videos expanded dramatically over time. Her audience expanded to 107 million subscribers over seven platforms in only one year.
