The Author’s Motivations

  • A Newsletter Subscription (free)
  • A bookstore that sells health books he’s endorsed either through his own books (as is the case with this book)
  • He also has a YouTube channel with over 2 million subscribers. Of whom, I am one. He has great information. It could be because his recommendations validate my approach to health and wellness.
  • His YouTube channel is a gateway into one of his other monetized platforms- Patreon.
  • He has, as of this writing, over five thousand Patrons on this site. On the low end of the Patreon subscription model ($5/month), he makes over $25K in monthly subscriptions. He has two other subscription plans- $12 and $20 per month. I’ll err on the conservative side, but he definitely has subscribers paying the higher monthly price for more access to Dr. Berry.
  • Dr. Berry is also prolific on YouTube. He has over 200 videos with about 20 of them having over 1 million views. Assuming a rate of $3–5 for every 1,000 views, I’d roughly estimate that Dr. Berry has earned about $100,000 for his top 20 videos.
