Iowa-born Nick Overton, more popularly known by his alias ImMarksman is currently one of the YouTubers making headlines in the gaming niche.
The 30 years old who turned a year older on June 10 is famous for his YouTube gaming content. In the early days, it was mostly based around the Call of Duty video game franchise. He has in recent years expanded his catalog to include Top 10 and Mario Kart videos.
So far he has been a sensation in the entertainment gaming world. He reached an estimated net worth of $1.2 million in 2020.
How Did ImMarksman Become Rich?
Nick Overton was born on the 10th of June, 1991 in Des Moines, Iowa. As a kid, he was very fascinated by video games. He already knew how to play them by the time he was 4!
He got his first gaming console, a Nintendo 64 as a Christmas gift when he was 6. He played all sorts of games on it with his dad and siblings. Games like Starfox and Super Mario Bros.
By the time he was 12, he had upgraded to gaming on an Xbox. It began to affect his studies in school. So his dad decided to put a stop to it. The 12-year-old came home one day only to discover that his dad had sold his Xbox. It was a heartbreaking moment for Overton but the deed had already been done. There would be no more video games in the house.
For two years, Overton was back to being the normal kid who took part in sports and other regular activities. He eventually grew sick of it all and decided to find a way back into the world of gaming.
He got a school permit which he used to get a part-time job at a grocery store. By pooling his earnings together, he was able to get an Xbox 360.
As you would expect, his dad was quite unhappy seeing him again with video games at home. So he told Overton that if he was going to continue spending his time playing games, he had better find a way to monetize it.
ImMarksman would take those words seriously.
He took part in online gaming competitions and would win some money here and there. When he lost, he would practice getting better.
Overton went to the University of Iowa where he studied journalism. While his mates enjoyed drinking and partying activities, Overton would spend his time gaming. On the side, he also worked for Justin.TV which is today the social media app Twitch.
Nick Overton opened his YouTube Channel in April 2010. On the 18th of November 2010, he uploaded his first YouTube video which was a search and destroy match on the Call of Duty Black Ops video game. He won the match 18-3 kickstarting his YouTube career.
His first uploaded video
In 2013, he graduated from the university and got a job as the CEO of a streaming company called StreamUp. During his free time, ImMarksman would upload videos to his YouTube channel.
Eventually, Overton’s contract with StreamUp ran out. He decided not to renew it, choosing instead to focus on creating content for his rising online brand. Already he was raking in more than his StreamUp salary from YouTube. Now he didn’t have to answer to any boss. It was just him, his video console, and his drive to make it in the gaming world.
But the success didn’t come easy.
At least once a week, he would wake up at 3 am while everyone was asleep and make detailed videos on game walkthroughs and game updates. According to him, this is one of the things that gets more eyeballs to his channel.
On other days, he wakes up around 9 am to answer emails and chat with teammates. Yes, he is part of a big team. They work together and practice the gameplay used for the videos. It isn’t about playing for fun anymore. It’s all work now.
When ImMarksman finishes with this correspondence, he goes to work on his videos and streams live by 7 pm to his viewers.
His schedule as a professional gamer doesn’t leave much time for socializing. He has made a lot of friends online though. He frequently works with other YouTubers such as Wildcat.
Overton is not even among the top 100 earners in the YouTube gaming niche yet but he has gotten to a level where the career pays him well. Recently he got a job with the gaming company, Counter Logic Gaming to play Fortnite. The job includes a nice salary and even a 401k.
