Rise to Stardom
Lincoln Markham, alongside his father Daniel, launched their channel 'What's Inside?' in the year 2008. The son and father duo completed a second grade science project and posted the project’s ‘What’s inside’ videos on their channel that, till then, consisted of mostly their family's home videos. After some time, their channel began to generate revenue. This made Markham and his father realize that something on their channel was being viewed a considerable number of times. They investigated and found that the views were coming from their “What’s Inside?” videos. The son and father then decided to remove the family videos from their channel, and with that, the ‘What's Inside?’ channel was born.
Lincoln Markham and his father then began posting videos every week and the channel took off. In April 2015, they hit 1k subscribers. A week later, the subscriber count doubled. In December that year, their channel successfully earned a million subscribers. Currently, it has over 6 million followers and billions of views.
