But can you blame the vloggers? If someone is foolish enough to pay me to vacation, I will accept with no shame. I don't have to give them any respect for such life choices but I'll tip my hat with friendly gratitude.Vloggers receive donations from their followers---while they are live in the parks
I would guess many are friends with CMs and other insiders who get wind of when soft openings or other previews might be happening. Invites too, like you said. Know the right people.Where do these vloggers get their information from? They seem to know an awful lot of where and when to be. Occasionally yeah they might get invites.
From my standpoint...they’re doing fine in Orlando (where you don’t strike it rich...minimum wage megaopolis)...good deal for them.What you should take into account is that the Trackers aren't just getting views on their latest videos, but also their vast back catalog. If you search youtube for say 'Cowfish' or 'Halloween Horror Nights', you generally find the Trackers in the first few recommendations. I'd guess this helps get their old videos viewed a lot and in fairness they do a decent job for the average person who doesn't know them and wants some family friendly advice on certain restaurants or special events.
That seems like a pretty good deal to me to...you know...not have to actually produce anything that’s sold/necessary/vital...The $2 to $4 per thousand would be after YouTube's cut.
Not much “insider” info thereI would guess many are friends with CMs and other insiders who get wind of when soft openings or other previews might be happening. Invites too, like you said. Know the right people.
You are massively out of touch if you think 125K a year "isn't much".That's not how write offs work. They can deduct 10k in income per year as write offs.
YouTube also takes 45%. So by your numbers they're making about 145k pre YouTube cut, or $80,000. Then taxes of around 30% takes that down to $56,000.
Even at $1,250 per day, after YouTubes cut, taxes, etc they're probably pulling in 125k-160k which really isn't that much. I can't even imagine living my life in front of a camera filming 5 days a week, day and night and on the computer editing videos. But to each their own.
Speaking more generally, remember that one of the draws that vloggers and other social media personalities use is the perception that they're living the high life
Disney has frequent "media" events and the vloggers are usually invited. They also get many "press release" type emails regarding everything from room specials coming to new items coming to shops and online.Where do these vloggers get their information from? They seem to know an awful lot of where and when to be. Occasionally yeah they might get invites.
What street in the US do you live on? Rodeo Drive of Beverly Hills?on a normal day on the streets of the US? Not as much
Where?Yes. For the average American 125K a year is a lot.
Ummm...different strokes for different folks.What street in the US do you live on? Rodeo Drive of Beverly Hills?
If $125k is an annual income that makes one feel deprived or pinched in the wallet, then they really need to stop and reevaluate their life choices and expenditures.
Of course there are laws about filming strangers for profit media. Why do you see blurred faces on TV shows? You have to get legal consent before releasing footage of that individual for your show.Maybe you can back that up with a law? Or, are you saying they have no moral right ?
