How much does Rick Shiels make and how?
Rick Shiels makes a remarkable $52,000 per month on YouTube. He does this through:
➜ Ads that play on his highly popular podcast on YouTube (and as his audience is considered wealthy by advertisers, they pay way more than other channels that feature cat videos)
➜ A brand sponsorship deal with Lyle & Scott (he didn’t like working with Nike and their ‘ask your viewers to buy our gear’ model, so he ended that partnership)
Those two revenue streams are enough for him to keep funding his dream life.
Keep in mind that he has hired a full-time videographer, editor and assistant to bring the world this incredible content.
Rick Shiels’s audience really praises him for:
➜ Being a seriously good communicator during podcasts
➜ Truly knowing the inside lives of pro golfers
➜ Having a hungry work ethic and consistently showing up every week
And of course, bringing on some incredible guests while asking the right questions!
Creator Red Flags
Despite his fame, Rick Shiels isn’t without some controversy. These include:
➜ A beef with Brooks Koepka
➜ Another beef with Peter Finch
That said, he hasn’t really drawn much backlash, particularly with other influencers.
