Who is Dude Perfect?
The creators behind the YouTube channel, Dude Perfect, are Garrett Hilbert, Cody Jones, Tyler Toney, Coby Cotton and Cory Cotton. They all deserve a great shout out for doing the unthinkable and igniting a creative spark that most individuals seem to lose entering adulthood. The best way to introduce a YouTube channel is to simply watch their videos.
Nonetheless, the most important question remains, how much money does Dude Perfect make on YouTube? And how did the group who make a living doing what every child dreams of doing, shenanigans, get to where they are today?
How Dude Perfect got popular?
Viral videos of their stunts and trick shots on YouTube got them pushed into the conversation of one of the most entertaining groups on the web. Although many people on YouTube may criticize that Dude Perfect uses camera angles to their advantage, Dude Perfect debunked the claims by stating that most of the time the stunts takes a lot of practice and is less so about camera angles. I guess making trick shots are a mixture of luck and a natural tendency to be able to make them seeing how often they do it in their videos. However, don't let that take away from the entertainment value that the group inherently offers to the general public from their wide range of entertaining personas.
How Dude Perfect makes money?
Dude Perfect makes money off selling merchandise and views from advertisers that display banners and adverts on their videos. In the advertising world, the revenue model for this is often called CPM (cost per thousand), which is an impression based model that is dependent on how many views a YouTube channel may generate. Often times, the CPM rate is around $1-6 depending on the industry and quality of the visitor traffic. In other words, Dude Perfect is making bank and living a lifestyle that people would dream of having.
Approximate annual pay & net worth
The group behind Dude Perfect have an estimated net worth of over $10 million. The annual salary they are known for having is around $1.5 million. Not bad for making a living off stunts and trick shots, am I right?
The idea for the channel originated on the campus of Texas A&M University. Garrett Hilbert, Cody Jones, Tyler Toney, Coby Cotton and Cory Cotton were all former high school basketball players and college roommates. We have the education system to thank for giving them the freedom to do as they please while academics lulled them to sleep to think about starting a YouTube channel in Dude Perfect.
