Who is Logan Paul and what does he do?
Logan Alexander Paul is an American YouTube personality and actor, who was born on April 1, 1995, and rose to fame after uploading videos to his YouTube channel. Although Paul started out on Vine where he gained many followers, he didn’t actually make it big until after joining YouTube.
He registered his first channel on October 18, 2013, and called it, “TheOfficialLoganPaul”, where he began posting videos regularly. On August 9, 2015, Paul created “the Logan Paul Vlogs channel”, which is his most subscribed to channel. In fact, the channel had 4.7 billion views and more than 20 million subscribers, on November 9, 2019, placing Paul among the top 130 most subscribed to channels and ranking him as the 50th most subscribed to channel in the U.S.
How does Logan Paul make money?
Paul’s revenue actually comes from a variety of sources. Although he earns most of his income from monetizing on video platforms, he also makes money by sponsoring content for brands he partners with. This actually started when he was on Vine when brands took notice of the huge following he gained by making videos of himself doing foolish things and performing physical stunts. Some of his brand partners were Ritz, Virgin Mobile, Pepsi, and HBO.
While Paul continues to sponsor product brands, he also sells his own sportswear and accessories under the name “Maverick by Logan Paul,” and made a pretty penny starring in television shows and movies. In addition, the famous Youtuber creates content for Facebook and Instagram, which brings in some big bucks too. Now Paul has taken a new leap right into the ring of fighting, which is also going well for the internet star.

After Vine finally reached its end, Paul started focusing on his You-Tube channel, which has seen an even bigger growth than most YouTubers as it is now one of the platforms most-viewed single person channels with more than 4.7 billion views.
Paul used his Youtube fame to reach other avenues and has starred in television shows making his acting debut in the short film Rainbow Man in 2014, then appeared on the shows King Bachelor’s Pad, Stitchers, Foursome, the hit show “Law & Order: SVU”, and even starred in the movie “The Thinning.” And the famous YouTuber didn’t stop there; he has also released some of his own music, although he creates songs that are more for fun and not as serious releases.
