Charlie Chang is a popular Youtuber, entrepreneur and Real estate broker.
Charlie’s Youtube Channel has 300k subscribers and according to Social Blade, it grows with about 50k subscribers every month.
So how does he make money?
In a September 2020 video, he revealed his 5 sources of income that make him $35,000 per month.
Here are his income streams broken down:

Let’s take a closer look in his most profitable income sources.
Affiliate Marketing is a business model that allows creators, influencers, and bloggers to promote products for companies and earn a commission for each successful referral.
Charlie Chang is part of a bunch of affiliate programs such as: Robinhood, Webull, and Coinbase. which he continuously links to in his Youtube descriptions.
Since Charlie Chang has over 300K subscribers and gets 1.5m monthly views, he likely makes a pretty substantial amount from these 3 affiliate programs alone.
In a recent article about how much affiliate marketers earn, we concluded that the average affiliate marketer makes anywhere from $12.5 to $75 for every 1000 views.
If we lowball this and know from Social Blade that Charlie Chang has 1.5 million average views per month, this would amount to $18,750 in affiliate income per month.
Youtube Ad Revenue
In his video, Charlie reveals he has an RPM of $16 which is slightly higher than other financial Youtubers we’ve profiled such as Andrei Jikh and Nate O’Brien.
The video was posted back in September 2020 and he said he makes around $10k-$15k from Ad Revenue.
However, Charlie is growing fast and thus his earnings are increasing fast as well. We’ve concluded he currently makes about $24,000 per month in Youtube Ad Revenue.
Here’s how we calculated it:
Charlie has around 1.5m video views per month according to his social blade stats. If we multiply this by the RPM of $16 he says himself he has, that would mean he makes around $24,000 per month from Youtube Ad Revenue alone.
Charlie believes you should make your money work for you, which is why he invests a large chunk of his money in stocks and he reveals these investments on his youtube channel from time to time.
Charlie has his own course: Side Hustle Mastery which he links to in the description of his videos. He charges about $397 for this course.

How Much Money Does Charlie Chang Make?
We know that in September 2020, Charlie made about $35,000 in passive income as he revealed in his video.
However, he seemed to have left out income sources such as those from his company Core Capital Realty.
We also know his channel has grown quite a bit since and he was doing $10k – $15k in Youtube Ad Revenue back then, which is now likely closer to $24,000 per month as his monthly viewership has increased.
This would also have increased his affiliate earnings which we estimate to be around $18,750 per month.
That means Charlie Chang’s total income from Youtube alone would currently be around $42,750 per month.
