JOURNALISTS LEARNED ABOUT ALEXEY MIKHAILOV’S INCOME DURING THE PANDEMIC
BY ANDREY KARPOV | 27 JULY 2020
“Despite the regime of self-isolation, many Russian stars of show business find ways to make good money,” says the Zvezdomania program.
The stars of Russian show business were forced to switch to new methods of making money due to the coronavirus pandemic. Artists work online, and they are paid impressive sums of money for this, as our editorial office has learned.
For example, a young Russian video blogger working on the TikTok platform, Alexei Mikhailov, has repeatedly been the host of school graduation events in 2020. Moreover, the events were held online. For one «remote» session, the blogger received an average of 34,000 rubles. If he could perform at the graduation personally, the star’s income could rise to 100 thousand rubles.
However, you can earn money thanks to advertising on social network, Alexey says.
“I confess that the prices for my advertising have increased dramatically during the spread of COVID-19. Now one video recommendation earns not 499 rubles, but all 1000” says Alexei Mikhailov.
And the young TikToker does not raise prices in vain, because at sixteen he no longer wants to live off his parents. This is probably the reason why Alexei started selling his things.
For example, the young video blogger received 21,578 rubles for convertible shorts, a T-shirt and a sweatshirt.
It is quite possible that this is an additional way of earning money by selling things which are unnecessary and neglected by the artist.
The Zvezdomania program will continue to follow the development of events.
