Bloggers and influencers can make money from their content. Not so long ago Forbes published an article, in which he calculated the annual earnings of the most popular TikTokers in the world. It turned out that being a TikToker is even more profitable than running Starbucks, McDonald’s, and even an oil company.
Sisters Charlie and Dixie D’Amelio are estimated to have earned $17.5 million and $10 million for 2021, while Starbucks chief Kevin Johnson earned $14.7 million for 2021 and McDonald’s CEO Chris Kempczynski only $10 million. 10.8 million
Addison Rae is a TikTok diva and actress who earned $8.5 million in 2021. And that’s more than Walter Jelinek, CEO of the world’s largest chain of warehouses, Costco Wholesale Corp.
Of course, TikTokers are still a long way from Tim Cook, who was able to earn 99 million last year, but even the above figures and the fact that young people can boast of such income due to their popularity on the social network is surprising.
