While chatting with David Dobrik on a recent episode of his “VIEWS” podcast, Addison Rae revealed how much money that TikTok stars actually make by posting on the app. Prepare yourselves, people, because the number is seriously shocking!
“What is the most somebody on the app has gotten paid for one TikTok?” the YouTube star asked, to which the influencer replied, “That I’m aware of… $90,000.”
Addison then went on to explain that she wasn’t the person who made that much, and then David clarified that TikTok stars won’t make money off all their videos, but just the ones that are fully branded. After their discussion, the brunette beauty asked David the same question about YouTube stars.
“What’s the most you’ve seen someone getting paid on YouTube?” she wondered. The Vlog Squad founder replied, “For a 30-second plug… it’s like $500,000 for an integration on YouTube.”
As fans know, this conversation came days after Rolling Stone, reported that the most followed TikTok star, Charli D’Amelio, can reportedly get up to $40,000 for one promotional post. Users on the widely popular app can get paid to help market up and coming artists who don’t have the backing of a major music label. One music manager told the publication that the video sharing app “gives little artists a chance.”
When it comes to getting the most followed people on the app to use a song in their videos, sometimes there’s a pretty hefty fee involved. Some digital marketers revealed to the publication that Charli will sometimes charge $25,000 for a post, but it’s usually as high as $30,000 to $40,000, especially since she’s the most followed person on the app with over 62 million followers.
As for other TikTok stars, Addison — who has racked up over 44 million followers — reportedly charges $20,000, while Chase Hudson, with over 21 million followers, will get anywhere from $2,000 to $10,000 for a post. Others, like JustMaiko, costs between $10,000 to $15,000, while Ondreaz and Tony Lopez with their 17 million followers get $2,500 to $5,000 for one post. Even Cowboy Cale, with over 2.6 million subscribers, can get anywhere from $2,500 to $3,500.
