The Creator Economy (full explanation)

When it comes to the creator economy, you may have unanswered questions about its meaning, growth, trends, startups, web3, metaverse, and the future. Spoiler alert: we cover all of this in the video below, plus more.

Problem: Being a Creator is Brutal 😖

There are thousands of people talking about the same subjects with new ‘experts’ emerging every day. You need new and unique ways to engage people to make sure they follow you and buy from you and not your competitor.

It's insanely difficult to monetize.

Regardless of the follower base size, monetization is a challenge for many creators. Fee events are typically tied to product launches that can take many months to create.

It's a lonely world for creators.

Our Mission is to Empower ALL Creators 🪄

What differentiates successful creators?

  1. Co-Creation - everyone contributes
  2. "Pay-to-collab" - find your true fans
  3. Revenue sharing - everyone has ownership

Winning creators are no longer solo. Collaboration with subscribers, writing scripts together, and getting live feedback during the process is the new norm for the most successful creators.

The best creators are migrating their most loyal fans off of social networks and onto their own websites, apps, and monetization platforms.
