There are more opportunities than ever for content creators. With the rise of the internet, anyone with a phone and an internet connection can create content and share it with the world.
Platforms like TikTok and YouTube, content creators can now make a living from their work. This is a great opportunity for people who want to earn money from home or for those who want to travel and see the world while working.
However, as more and more people join the platforms, more creativity is usually needed to stand out from the crowd and grab people’s attention. In this blog post, we’ll look at how Malawians are becoming successful content creators and how you can potentially start making money from your own creativity today.
ICT Tac is growing rapidly in Malawi and the rest of Africa with a young user base passionate about creativity, music and dance. Over the past year, we’ve seen an increase in the number of people creating content on TikTok and other social media platforms.
One of Malawi’s biggest designers is Caitlyn Mwenifumbo, who now has over a million followers on Instagram. Caitlyn started making videos in her bedroom and now she travels the world, sharing her creativity with her fans.
Since Caitlyn, there have been many more young creatives in Malawi who have followed in her footsteps and created unique and engaging content that is shared and watched by millions of people around the world.
People can earn money online with content by partnering with brands, selling products, or through fan donations. Patreon is another great platform for content creators to make money by creating exclusive content for their subscribers, who pay a monthly fee.
You can also sell products such as e-books, Classes, or merchandise on your website or through platforms such as Etsy. And if you have a large following on social media, you can also ask your fans to support you with donations. Once you have 800 followers on TikTok, you can then go “Live” and fans can send you virtual gifts that you can convert to cash. This is one of the easiest ways for TikTok creators to earn money.
Youtube is also growing rapidly in Africa with more people watching videos than ever before. And like TikTok, Youtube offers content creators the opportunity to earn money. You can become a “Youtuber” by creating and uploading videos to the platform and then monetizing your channel with advertisements.
You’ll need to have at least 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 watch hours in the last 12 months to qualify. But once you are, then you can join the YouTube Partner Program and can start making money from your videos!
No matter where you are in the world, if you have an internet connection and a phone, you can start creating content and making money today. There’s never been a better time to be a content creator! So what are you waiting for? Start sharing your creativity with the world today!
