If becoming a content creator, whether as a full-time or part-time gig, has ever been a dream of yours, now is a perfect time to join the social media game and start making a living from your content.
Influencer marketing and content creation have blown up over the past few years, making it one of the most lucrative industries at the moment. And since the social media giants like Instagram and Facebook have noticed the growing profitability of online content, they’ve created programs to help creators make money with their content. So if you have cool content ideas you want to put into the world and earn income with, here’s a quick rundown on popular creator programs you need to know about:
1. Tiktok’s Creator Fund
If you’re new to content creation, Tiktok is the perfect playground with its practical algorithm that pushes videos, even with zero views, in front of millions of people. To join this program, you need at least 10,000 followers. But you’d be surprised at how fast you can grow a following by posting consistently!
2. Instagram’s Reels Play Bonus Program
This creator’s program is invite-only, but creators receive earnings based on the performance of their reel and the number of videos they create. If you’re invited, you’ll receive a pop-up notification in your professional dashboard. I recently made $102 for posting about five reels.
3. Facebook’s Reels Bonus Program
Created to compete against Instagram’s creator program, Meta’s Reels Bonus program is a similar concept to all the rest. You need at least 10,000 followers, 5 videos, and 600,000 minutes of viewership in the past 60 days to be a part of the program. And according to Meta, they’re investing big in their creator fund, so get in where you fit in, alright?
If you have a passion for something, or you just want to share pieces of your life online, this is the time when you can truly make a living just from living, and with no cap! So what do you all think?
