The social media app TikTok is popular not just with Generation Z, but has become a viral new trend among celebrities, influencers, and older generations. With dance videos, hilarious (and sometimes dangerous) challenges, lip-syncing, and more, it's easy to lose track of time and scroll for hours through these short videos.
Similar to YouTube and Instagram, TikTok has even produced viral stars. One of the biggest stars that spawned from TikTok is Charli D'Amelio; the 16-year-old is the most-followed person on the social media app, boasting almost 110 million followers.
So, just how much does Charli make on one of her videos?
After the Connecticut native's career skyrocketed, the teen and her sister, Dixie D'Amelio, have gone on to partner with several businesses, including Dunkin Donuts and Hollister, launch her own line of ring lights, and much more.
Basically, she's killing the TikTok influencer game. Keep reading to find out more about Charli's net worth.
How much does Charli D'Amelio make per TikTok video? What is her net worth?
With her large social following, the teen queen reportedly gets paid an estimated $50,000 per post. Fresh Student Living took a closer look at Charli's earnings potential and predicted that she could become a billionaire by 2033. That would make Charli 28 years old.
We wouldn't be too shocked if Charli became a billionaire under the age of 30. She is constantly partnering with brands and created her own merch too. However, it has been reported that Charli's current net worth is $8 million.
So, how did Charli D'Amelio get so famous?
Well, even Charli is surprised by her fame. Starting her channel in June 2019, she instantly began amassing a crazy amount of followers. So, what is her secret?
“I wish I could give everyone an explanation as to what happened, but I have no idea,” she explained to MEL. “I’m just doing what I do every day and posting it, I guess. It’s very insane to me, as it is for everyone else watching.”
As others are looking to copy her "secret" formula, TikTok expert Alessandro Bogliari spoke with Distractify about how the young teen's popularity grew so fast.
"With Charlie, she became this image of the perfect TikTok girl dancing... It was trending because everyone was commenting, ‘I don’t understand the hype.’ Then they went from [watching] her videos and to then making fun of themselves saying ‘now I get it,’" she explained.
Adding, "She was a bit lucky because people create trends and funny memes about something. ... She was good about being consistent, but she didn’t really work on that, it just happened. That’s what happens on TikTok."
Additionally, Charli became a member of the Hype House (though she and her sister left the group in 2020), which helped grow her following.
The Hype House features a number of fellow TikTok stars, including Addison Rae, Chase Hudson aka LilHuddy, Ryland Storms, Connor Yates, and more, that lived together in L.A. and regularly collaborate and create videos with one another. Following the success of the social media collective, other TikTok groups started popping up, hoping to once again catch Charli's lightning in a bottle.
But for the teen, it just simply struck.
