Not so Posh

Vic­to­ria Beck­ham axes flop Youtube chan­nel

Edmonton Sun - - SHOWBIZ -

Vic­to­ria Beck­ham has ap­par­ently axed her youtube chan­nel af­ter the ven­ture failed to take off — mak­ing just $31-per-day.

The star launched the chan­nel in april, show­cas­ing her lux­ury life in­clud­ing can­did footage of her fa­mous fam­ily and the in­ner work­ings of her fash­ion la­bel.

How­ever, it suf­fered a slow start, and the for­mer spice Girls singer has ap­par­ently walked away from the project af­ter in­cur­ring five-fig­ure losses due to pro­duc­tion costs, with the chan­nel earn­ing the star just $31 each day.

While her page boasted 109,000 sub­scribers, an in­sider told bri­tain’s Daily Mail news­pa­per it just wasn’t fea­si­ble for beck­ham — aka Posh spice — to carry on work­ing on the clips, and is in­stead turn­ing her fo­cus to her other busi­nesses — which they also claimed have suf­fered a “hor­ren­dous” year fi­nan­cially.

“The youtube chan­nel has been im­pos­si­ble to mon­e­tize, and it was very time­con­sum­ing so the de­ci­sion was that it would be pulled,” they ex­plained.

Open­ing up when she first an­nounced her foray into youtube, Vic­to­ria ex­plained to Harper’s Bazaar: “This is con­tent that I am go­ing to own — and it can be what­ever I want it to be.”
