How Shaun Attwood makes money
Let’s get the obvious one out of the way: advertisements in his video content. On YouTube, the average CPM — the amount of money paid per 1,000 views — is $2. This varies based on several factors, and Google keeps 45% of the revenue generated, so it can be hard to sustain yourself from this alone. Regardless, Shaun Attwood is a big draw for viewers and will easily earn hundreds of thousands of dollars per month this way.
Shaun Attwood Content and brand deals
In addition to advertising revenue, he offers memberships to his channel that offer varying perks. £1.99, £4.99, and £6.99 tiers are all available as monthly fees, and in return members can receive exclusive access to loyalty badges, custom emojis, a community Discord, and live streams. Each month he gifts revenue from his streams to a variety of charity organizations, an example is a $133,169 donation to the Blue Cross Foundation for money generated in January 2021.
Another of his revenue streams is a standard one among content creators, and that’s brand deals. Sponsorships with the likes of Arkade, Mountain Dew, and Legendary Pictures pay him to advertise products (and even movies in some cases).
Affiliate campaigns are common among brand deals and he has his fair share of links in his YouTube video descriptions that he earns a commission on. He also has his own G FUEL flavor and collection of shakers, energy drinks, and powder tubs — he even earns a commission from this business partnership, too.
As has become evident, Shaun Attwood has been business-minded throughout his lengthy career in an attempt to create multiple revenue streams that operate independently from the turbulent world of content creation. We’ll be sure to keep this article updated as and when he expands into new areas of business.
