Linus Tech Tips is one of the foremost popular technology channels on YouTube. it’s everything from unboxing videos to gadget reviews, to actual tech tips. The channel is one among three under the Linus Media Group, a corporation founded and headed by Linus Sebastian.
Linus founded the corporation in January 2013 after experiencing some success on YouTube. Two new channels were created within the process; Techquickie (1.1m+ subscribers) and ChannelSuperFun (40k+ subscribers).
The media company also owns and runs a successful tech forum, LinusTechTips.com.
How Much Does Linus Tech Tips Make on YouTube
Unlike many YouTubers, Linus Sebastian has converted his hobby/passion into a true business and not just a source of income. He has partners, staff, an office and has actively tried to diversify.
In 2015, Linus Media Group moved from a residential address in Vancouver into a billboard office space. Linus and his partners established a sales division to supplement the direct YouTube/Adsense income. As a result, most of his videos now have a sponsor.
SocialBlade says his daily views are as below
LinusTechTip – 1,100100
Techquickie – 180,000
ChannelSuperfun – 50,000
His average daily views is 1.3million
His videos are mostly under 10 minutes long, translating to a coffee payout of between $1 and $3 for every 1000 views (CPM).
However, not every view is monetized. counting on the category, that figure may go right down to about 50%. within the tech category, users are generally more aware of ad-blocking tools and hence this low percentage.
That puts Linus Sebastian’s monetized views to about 0.65 million…. Let’s just say 700,000 views daily.
If we give him the very best CPM of $3, that might translate to $2100 each day. That’s $63,000 a month. Because he also runs advertisers’ messages inside the video (not suffering from adblockers) and shares Amazon affiliate links, Linus potentially doubles this figure. that might put his earnings at $126,000 a month.
There are many unknowns, so let’s just say $100,000 a month.
That looks sort of a lot of cash , but remember he’s running a corporation that must pay salaries plus other overhead costs. After expenses, let’s provides it a really generous profit of fifty . meaning Linus Media Group makes a profit $50,000 a month.
To calculate its worth, we’ll multiply this number by 20 (applies to most web properties). That puts its value at $1 million.
Obviously, because it’s a corporation (a tech company for this case), the valuation isn’t always supported assets and liabilities. There’s usually tons of consideration on future potential for growth. That explains why a loss-making begin is often sold for over a billion dollars.
That, plus also the multiple unknowns in terms of what they really charge independent advertisers, we will range Linus Media Group net worth at between $1 and $3.
The company had 4 co-founders, whose ownership which there’s unknown.
Linus seems to be the most partner, so we’ll assume he got the lion’s share. Let’s say 50%.
Using all this information, we will have a rough estimate on Linus Sebastian’s net worth. Therefore…
Linus Tech Tips net worth is $1.5 million
