Farming for sili. Riding a kalabaw across farmland. Making a DIY alkansya from a long tube of bamboo and pouring some coins inside for an ipon challenge.
Everyday scenes from a countryside life, yes — but this enterprising creator has found a way to turn these videos into a high-paying gig as a content vlogger.
A resident of Nueva Ecija, content creator Macki Moto reveals in a video interview that after recently monetizing his YouTube videos, he made up to P48,500 from his uploaded content.
Now, his income can reach up to P50,000 a month.
You can earn money on YouTube when the platform places ads against your content. (However, you’ll need at least 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 hours of watched content, among other requirements.)
He doesn’t use expensive equipment, either.
“Unang gamit ko sa pang-vlog yung camera ko noon, yung cellphone ko,” said Macki. “Tapos nanghiram pa ako sa kaibigan ko ng stick para hindi nakakangawit gamitin habang hawak-hawak mo ang cellphone.”
His wife is the one who edits his videos. She is self-taught, revealed Macki in surprise.
Vlogging wouldn’t be his first career choice, Macki said. “Kung pagpipiliin ako sa ginagawa ko, ang pipiliin ko siguro is yung pagtatanim. Dito talaga ako masaya. Ito yung passion ko.”
But if you can make extra cash creating content out of your passion, why not?
