If you love spending time on YouTube, it’s nearly impossible to not encounter an Alex Gonzaga video.
Alex Gonzaga is on her way to becoming a local YouTube sensation. She currently has over 3.5 million subscribers and is the fourth most subscribed local vlogger on YouTube.
But how much does Alex really earn from videos?
Alex told ABS-CBN, “Here in the Philippines kasi, I get yung percentage ng ads na pumapasok sa akin… It can range to…mostly nagsi-six digits talaga siya.”
YouTube channel Pinas Archive said Alex earns an estimated amount of PHP350,000 monthly.
A popular website providing social media statistics, Social Blade, gives a whooping estimate of $58,000 or around PHP3,025,661.
Alex explained how she earns by posting videos on YouTube. She said, “We get a little percentage of the commercials na lumalabas sa YouTube namin.
“If you want to earn more, of course, you have to post more videos and you have to have more views so that nakakakuha ka ng commercials,” she added.
But more than earning big bucks, Alex is thankful she gets to do something she loves and share it with others.
Alex started vlogging in July 2017 but didn’t expect many would actually watch her.
She said, “ I didn’t expect talaga a lot more kasi nga feeling ko rin, during that time, na my network will not din renew me naman.”
“So parang sabi ko, sige, I’ll just do something na at least I’m doing it. I’m not earning a lot, that’s what I thought,” Alex said.
Alex’s funny antics on her vlogs had earned her a strong following and opened many doors. From endorsements, movies, shows, even producing a film, Alex is truly reaping in her new found success.
