How Creators Can Make More Money

Explore dozens of ways for creators like you to earn more.

Maximize Your Creator Earnings

There are dozens of ways for creators to earn more money, from paid memberships to brand deals, paid collabs, merchandise and more.

The best creator monetization model for you depends on your talents, social platform, industry, audience size, etc.

It also depends on your personal preferences -- what's enjoyable for you? You want something that's sustainable, so you don't burn out. For example, do you want to:

  • Partner with brands for deals and sponsorships
  • Provide exclusive content to premium members
  • Collaborate with other artists
  • Sell merchandise
  • Provide coaching and 1:1 sessions
  • And dozens of other opportunities

When starting out you may focus on one monetization method, but as you grow, you'll want to utilize multiple monetization methods. Not only does this keep things fresh to reduce burnout, but to also diversify your revenue streams.

The value of differentiation

One of the main challenges for creators is deciding what to do and where to focus. There are millions of other aspiring creators, so how do you stand out?

You must focus on what you're uniquely good at to differentiate. For example, you might be only above average (far from world class) at four skills, like teaching, an instrument, vocals, and composition. But when you combine those four skills you're world class at the combination of those skills.

Differentiate by combining multiple skills in unique ways.

Differentiate by pulling multiple skills together in creative ways, which technology and social networks are making easier now than ever before to find your audience.

At the end of the day, you will succeed when you find your unique set of skills you can combine to do something that 1) you enjoy, 2) you're good at and 3) the world is willing to pay for (e.g. you can make money from).
