These channels hire employees, invest in gear, and structure themselves as corporations to optimize their financial situation. Some of these channels make substantial revenue, with some individuals making over $100,000 per video. As channels grow and reach larger audiences, it becomes essential for creators to become tax and business savvy to manage their finances effectively.

Instances of sudden follower growth or content takedowns can occur, and creators may face challenges with retroactive policy changes.
