The YouTuber Dream

We all love watching videos online, but what makes YouTubers so popular? Audiences love to keep it real, which means online personalities are more relatable than celebrities and media companies. Youtubers have mastered the art of maintaining a good relationship with their fans and collaborating with other creators in the community.

Brands and corporations have noticed how influential YouTubers are, giving them sponsorships and ad revenue to gain relevance among viewers. Some channels have even branched into making their own shows, podcasts, and merch! There are 1.8 billion users on the platform, and thousands of Aussie channels that generate millions in revenue every year. The numbers continue to go up, proving that you can make a living by just being yourself.
