Each year TIME Magazine comes out with a list of the world’s most influential people and, in more recent years, they’ve began to run a second, separate list each year marking the most influential people on the web. Because the internet has become such a big part of everyone’s lives it is important to know who the biggest influencers online are.
Last year, Joy Cho was named among the internet’s biggest influencers. Cho, who is a graphic designer out of Los Angeles, has been able to reach millions of people through her blog and social media channels. In fact, she’s got millions of subscribers worldwide. How has all of this popularity on the internet impacted Joy Cho’s net worth?
About Joy Cho
Before jumping straight into her finances, you should know that Cho is a hard-working individual. She launched “Oh Joy,” her graphic design studio, in 2005. The brand now includes product lines, lifestyle videos and regularly updated blogs on design, fashion and food.
The design company and blog are only a portion of Cho’s career though. A significant portion of Cho’s time is spent on social media and YouTube, interacting with followers (and earning cash). Because she has so many followers she is able to reach a large amount of people, which is why she was named one of the most influential people on the internet last year. It is also the reason she’s able to use her social media accounts and YouTube as another source of income.
Not all her work is online though. Her first love was always (and still is) graphic design. Her work is oftentimes featured in design and fashion magazines worldwide, including publications like “InStyle” and “Good Housekeeping.” She also features her own design ideas on her blog and YouTube channel for subscribers.
In addition to her work on Oh Joy and her various social media outlets, Cho has also authored three books and provided design consultations for hundreds of business around the world. She’s also put her name on a few product lines at retail stores like Target. So, what has all this hard work done for Joy Cho’s net worth?
Joy Cho’s Net Worth
According to The Squander, Joy Cho’s net worth lands somewhere between $5 million and $7 million. While all of her success started with her blog, Cho has been able to diversify her income, which has led to great financial success.
In addition to the blog, Cho has also authored three books (mentioned above) and, obviously, has her own graphic design company. After becoming popular on the internet Cho was able to begin earning income from her social media accounts (she has millions of followers around the world). She’s also gained popularity on YouTube so she’s able to earn money from that revenue stream as well.
You won’t likely see Cho or her wealth disappear any time soon. In fact, be prepared to see a lot of her in the future. Her and her team are constantly working on new, creative designs to share with the world.
