Erika Kullberg, an   attorney   with more than 21 million followers on social media, wants everyone to know how much social media sites really pay.

Kullberg regularly creates personal finance content for YouTube, Instagram, and TikTok and helps get people what they're owed, like $1,000 if they're   bumped   from a flight. One of Kullberg's videos   addresses   how she paid off more than $225,000 in student loans in less than two years.   Another   is about her decision to quit a $250,000 job in corporate law.

"YouTube is by far the highest paying social media platform for me," Kullberg told   Entrepreneur .

In a   video   posted to her accounts on Thursday, and   earlier   on her website, Kullberg disclosed that she has two million subscribers on YouTube and her videos on the platform have received around 273 million views.

A   48-second   YouTube video Kullberg uploaded in December 2022 that received 4.1 million views made her $106.85. A   longer   12-minute YouTube video with fewer views (3.8 million) posted three years ago gave her a more substantial payout of $45,000 — for just one video.

Most of the money — $44,900 out of $45,000 — came from watch page ads.

Kullberg's total earnings from YouTube for the last five years (before taxes and not including brand sponsorships) was more than $353,000.

Other platforms pay less. The bulk of Kullberg's following comes from TikTok, where she has 9.2 million followers and 542 million views. There, she has made $5,756 since she began posting two years ago.

Facebook has paid Kullberg nearly four times as much in the same time frame. She has a following of 4.5 million on the platform and made $20,251 over about two years.

"It's actually not much extra work to monetize on different platforms," Kullberg told   Entrepreneur.   "I'm using the same short videos and posting them across TikTok, YouTube Shorts, Instagram, and Facebook."

Kullberg has 5.3 million followers on Instagram but makes $0 from the platform because Instagram doesn't  pay   creators  directly anymore.

Being a social media influencer is  the  dream job for Gen Z, with 57% stating in a  recent report  that they would be an influencer if given the chance.

I only made half of what she made practising commercial law - but that was about a quarter of a century ago.

I have friends who are making money on some of these sites. The best by far seems to be YouTube as there are several different ways to make money there.

From what I've seen, the main reason to go on the other sites its to get followers-- but YouTube is the best single site for earning money.

But then there's no reason for me to even think about it, since I can't open YouTube, Facebook or Instagram anyway.  I'm happy enough completely retired anyway.

For many of the more intelligent younger folk who are still working, these social media sites can represent an opportunity to greatly supplement their income.

(Or in some cases an opportunity to eventually quit their "day job" altogether and greatly increase their income-- while doing something they enjoy).

While I can probably open all those things I don't which contributes to my happy retirement, lol

I'm happy to say that both my kids are in very successful careers, but who knows, maybe my grandchildren, who are still young kids, might one day have some fun with these new concepts (if they're lucky enough to survive school shootings, since they're in America).

Pretty good, but my health is deteriorating, so it isn't perfect.

The only one that I miss is YouTube for the music and movies.  Although there are alternatives here like bilibili and yukou they're not as comprehensive.

I'm always skeptical about whatever the media claims is how much a celebrity earns or someone's net worth.  There is a lot of puffery.

It really works. This young lady makes enough on YouTube that she can groom pets for free.
