Who is Ashtyn Sommer?
Born on June 24, 1994 in Burnsville, Minnesota, USA, Ashtyn Sommer Joslyn is a YouTube personality, best known as part of the couples channel Ashtyn&Jon which she co-hosts with her boyfriend Jon McNamee. They have over 200,000 subscribers on their channel that uploads about a few videos a week.
The Wealth of Ashtyn Sommer
As of mid 2020, Ashtyn Sommer’s net worth is estimated to be over $500,000 earned through a successful online career. Apart from her income on YouTube, she also earns income through an Only Fans channel where she sells videos and photos to monthly subscribers.
She also earns through opportunities from other online social media platforms.
Early life and online beginnings
Ashtyn first met Jon during high school when they both went to the same school. At that time, they still had several relationships but remained friends all the way through. They started dating around senior year when they found out they were both single. After graduating from high school, the couple decided to create a YouTube channel as a hobby. They also sought it out as a potential means of earning income as it has become a successful avenue for many people.
YouTube is an online video sharing platform and one of the most popular websites on the internet. It allows users to upload videos to share with the public. They may then be able to earn income through Google’s advertising revenue, provided they meet all the requirements. Like many YouTube channels, they uploaded videos together. Ashtyn&Jon started out more as a comment channel where they watch other popular videos and then comment on these videos. Reaction videos have become a niche on YouTube and are very popular as many find it appealing to see how others react to a similar video.
Rise to fame
The pair decided to upload videos the other day and while they don’t necessarily stick to the schedule, their consistent uploads eventually built up a steady following. As their channel grew in popularity, they drew the ire of several viewers who felt this rising trend was from comment channels decreasing other channels on YouTube. Comment content creators essentially don’t create original content alongside their comments, so it takes less effort to upload regularly. Comment channel critics claim that these channels are getting views intended for the original video, which took a lot of time and effort.
With the criticism mounting, the couple decided to change gears and start making other types of videos. They set up their main channel as a videoblog (vlog) type of channel where they showed some of their daily activities and occasionally some travel videos. To support some of their comment channel supporters, they’ve created a second channel where they almost exclusively upload those kinds of videos.
In recent months, Ashtyn&Jon has started making videos who are on trend among many other YouTubers.
They often make prank videos where they often make fun of each other. The jokes sometimes go extreme and some viewers wonder if they are making legitimate content or if it is largely made up. They also make challenge videos, question and answer videos, and story videos where they often talk about their past, such as how they met. These videos are usually created depending on the demand of their subscribers. Some of the most popular videos often feature public displays of affection or clickbaity titles. Many people also like Ashtyn doing fashion shows and trying on bikinis or other form-fitting clothes for videos.
They also streamed some of their reaction videos, first on Twitch before later moving Stream labs. However, they have temporarily taken a break from comments. They’ve also set up a Patreon account so some of their followers can donate directly to support them. Patreon has become a popular platform for YouTube content creators to earn extra income due to the ever-changing policies of the website, which has led to lower revenues for some.
Only Fans and Patreon
Aside from their couple’s channel, Sommer has gained a lot of attention due to her attractive qualities.
She is not shy about showing off her body and posting sensual photos when necessary. Her Instagram account is full of these photos and to take advantage of it, she created an Only Fans bill. The website allows content creators to post a monthly subscription service for exclusive content. Paid subscribers can access photos and videos that are not publicly available. This is very popular among content creators who are not afraid to show more.
Only Fans is known as a site that is very popular among sex workers and those willing to send nude photos. Those who are not comfortable posting that kind of content can post sexy pictures that look like glamor models.
The website has been a way for content creators to monetize their fan base directly and sometimes it gives users exclusive access to their favorite creators.
Aside from their couple’s Patreon, she also established a solo cartridge account that works the same as Only Fans. This kind of work has led many people to question the status of her relationship with Jon, but it seems that everything she’s posted was also made with his permission.
Although Ashtyn and Jon have been together since high school, they are not married yet and won’t be getting married anytime soon. They had a child sometime after graduation and they try their best not to keep her involved in their online work. She occasionally posts a few pictures of their daughter on social media.
