Emma Chamberlain, Her Generation’s Social Media Super Star

You just have to be born in the right decade.

The perfect year.

It helps to be young and attractive. Especially now where opportunities on the Internet are expanding for young women around the world. A new world where a girl can have millions of followers on Instagram or YouTube and if she is clever, which she most likely is, she can make millions of dollars.

The same girl born in 1950, few, except for her neighbors and ice cream soda shop co-workers would ever know who she is.

She probably would not make a million dollars in a lifetime.

Timing is everything.

It’s a good thing that Emma Chamberlain was born in 2001.

Exceptional timing.

Good for her and great for her fans. She has over 8.4 million subscribers.

Yes, you figured her age correctly. She’s only 18. Here is the best part of being born in the time period of Vloggers, Bloggers, Social Media Influencers and YouTubers.

Symbolic Kardashian disciples.

She is able to get an average of 3.5 million views per day from different sources. This should generate an estimated revenue of around $14,000 per day ($5 million a year) from the ads that appear on the videos.

Oh, that is not counting endorsement deals. She makes more money there as well.

And you know what? It gets better. Much.

We will pose a question for you to answer. More like a riddle. Ready?

What occupation allows you to be on summer vacation all of the time?

Thaaaaaaaaaaaat’s right folks. You guessed it.

Emma’s job. She’s 18, we’ve gleaned not going to school with that crazy busy schedule and making a good living, traveling, eating the most delicious foods and hanging out with her friends.

That lifestyle allows you to look like a Surfer Girl even though Emma admits that she has never surfed.

Wait.

Didn’t Andre Agassi with long flowing hair say that Image Is Everything back in the 1980’s?

Could you deal with a life like that?

Much of the appeal of creative and dynamic personalities like Emma is that they have an exceptional pulse on what viewers, especially female teens, want.

She won the 2018 Streamy Award for Breakout Creator.

In April 2019, she launched a weekly podcast, Stupid Genius.

In July 2019, Time Magazine included her on its fifth annual list of The 25 Most Influential People On The Internet, writing that “Chamberlain pioneered an approach to vlogging that shook up YouTube’s unofficial style guide.”

Our electronic star uploaded the first video to her YouTube channel on June 2, 2017. She posted videos almost daily during the summer of 2017. Despite her frequent upload schedule, she had just 50 subscribers after her first twenty videos.

On July 27, 2017, she posted a video titled We All Owe The Dollar Store An Apology. It became the first video of hers to go viral, and in August her channel rapidly gained subscribers, increasing from 4,000 on August 1 to 150,000 on August 30.

Now get this.

Her channel then continued to gain approximately 100,000 new subscribers monthly until June 2018.

Incredible.

In March 2018, Ms. Chamberlain began an association with the shopping app Dote.

Emma is in great financial company.

As reported by techcrunch.com, “While consumers are increasingly turning to Amazon to buy everything from home goods to electronics, a newly launched app called Dote believes there’s an opportunity to compete with the e-commerce giant’s fashion business.

Dote users download the free app, then they are asked to select their favorite brands to be notified about sales and offers. Users are shown curated trends, though there’s also a social component where they can show friends what they’re buying.”

Sounds intriguing.

Dote’s views itself as a mobile shopping app that curates from brands like Sephora, Victoria’s Secret and Gap in what the company calls a virtual mall.

As we know, at the mall, you can always be doted on.

More good things began to happen.

During 2018, Dote sent her to Austin, Texas, to the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, and to Fiji with numerous other female YouTubers.

In July 2018, Dote released a clothing line designed by Chamberlain, Low Key / High Key by Emma. Because of controversies related to Dote, Ms. Chamberlain cut ties with them in late 2018.

It was time to move on.

In June 2018, Emma moved from the San Francisco Bay Area to Los Angeles.

There she formed The Sister Squad with fellow teenage YouTubers James Charles and the comedy duo The Dolan Twins.

The four uploaded simultaneous videos on their respective YouTube channels on June 19, August 28, October 31, and December 25, 2018, and were featured prominently in YouTube Rewind 2018, with Chamberlain’s face at the center of the YouTube Rewind 2018 thumbnail.

Drum roll please.

The Sister Squad was nominated for a 2019 YouTube Ensemble Shorty Award.

Emma can now add the title of World Traveler to her resume. She attended Paris Fashion Week complete with a wall of photographers snapping her picture.

You could go on forever about the accomplishments of Emma Chamberlain and the astounding aspect to this is that she is only 18, making millions and just getting starting.

Did we say that already? Well, it does bear repeating.

She is truly inspiring. Are people talking about her? Even adult people? Of course.

The team at marieclaire.com gush about Emma, “She has become one of the most popular new stars on the Internet by, essentially, talking about her bacne. She’s unapologetically forthcoming about every aspect of herself, deeply skeptical, and self-deprecatingly honest.

For a generation that’s grown up filtering photos and curating content, Chamberlain is a much-needed antidote to the pressure to be perfect.”

All you have to do is look at her YouTube videos. So many of them are very creative and cutting edge. She’s all over the electronic map.

One warning though. Be prepared to hear colorful language. You understand?

Okay, another question.

Can you really be happy at any age if you don’t have to do traditional work, can eat anything you want, can buy everything you desire, have no one to tell you what to do and must continually come up with new and fresh ideas to keep minor minds melded?

Oh, we left at least one other benefit out.

She doesn’t have to cook. Unless she wants to. Why? Cuz she knows you wanna watch.

For how long can she do this?

We don’t know, but you know what? For however long it lasts?

We want to come along for the Emma ride.
