How much money does Lester make?
Lester says in the above video that he earns “well over $200 per day” from his online business, so we’re talking at least $6000 per month overall.
However, as per the screenshots shown at the beginning of that video, it looks like Lester earned $7,462 from Facebook marketing in May – up 24% from the previous month – and another $1,436 from YouTube ads the same month.
So, for that month at least, he probably earned closer to $10,000.
In a February 2020 video Lester showed how he earns money on Facebook via in-stream video ads:
In a May 2020 video, Lester showed that he earned $1287 in YouTube ad revenue the previous month:
He had 175k video views for the month, and 20-22k subscribers to his channel.
So his average income from YouTube ads in April and May works out to $1,341 per month.
