Filipino celebrities don’t twit or plurk because they have a better option, and that is the Celebrity KText. A fan subscribes to their favorite celebrity via their mobile phone. For each message a celebrity sends to a subscriber, the subscriber is billed Php2.50. Imagine how profitable this is to a celebrity.
I’ve heard that Kris Aquino has at least 33000 KText subscribers. That means that every time Kris Aquino sends a KText message, all those 33000 subscribers will receive it and will be billed Php2.50 each. Of course, Kris Aquino will not get 100% of that Php 2.50. Just imagine that Kris Aquino only gets 10% of that Php 2.50. That’s Php 0.25 for each subscriber. With 33000 subscribers, she’s putting Php8250 on her wallet for every update.
Imagine if she sends 3 KText updates per day. That’s the maximum KText message per day allowed to them. How much will she earn in a month? That’s 3 messages x Php 0.25 x 33000 subscriber x 30 days = Php 742000. Wow! That’s a lot of money. And we are still using a conservative 10% commission. Imagine if it’s more than that.
Kaya minsan, gusto ko na rin mag-artista. LOL! Can’t we have a Blogger KText? Send MACUHA.COM ON TO 2366. May magsubscribe kaya? LOL!
