A Bite-Sized Intro to the Creator Economy
The Rise and Rise of the Creator Economy
You’ve stumbled upon this word before, the Creator Economy. In fact, 99.9% of us, as we’re scrolling through, or even reading this article, we are already part of the creator economy. A report by Forbes recently revealed that there are over 50 million creators in the thriving industry that is worth over $100 Billion. As we dive into the new year, it’s high time we embrace the creator economy.
So how are we involved in it? Take a quick look at this overall picture that showcases how three main aspects interact together in the creator economy.
Creators aren’t new, but their economy is. The Covid-19 pandemic also played a major part in accelerating the creator economy. Over the past decade, more and more people are forgoing conventional occupations, choosing instead to make a living by streaming their interests and hobbies through online video or digital portals.
When the pandemic hit, businesses were shut down to curb the spread. This included TV and movie studios, as well as theatres and auditoriums. Many viewers resorted to online as their main source of entertainment. Although creator content pales in comparison to professionally produced entertainment, they remain highly appealing due to their accessibility and authenticity.
Creating the Creator: From Personal Hobby to Career
Content creators - many of whom already worked independently from home - had the edge as they continued to churn out videos. Many Creators often start out as hobbyists, highlighting their passion and interest for fun to a small select audience. The parallel rise and success of digital system networks have allowed more creators to find ways to monetize their content, combining their passion alongside a savvy mix of commerce and entertainment.
The creator economy is also getting a boost from new and upcoming digital network systems that help creators run their business more efficiently. The creator economy is notoriously competitive. Many creators face challenges from a variety of reasons including poor monetization options; or even burnout from trying to keep up with the demand. Many of such platforms are also primarily designed for non-Asian creators, which could lead to issues such as localization and lack of support.
