If you’re a content producer, you’ve certainly wondered how individuals make money on TikTok, how much they can make, and how the platform pays. Let us discuss monetization!
Since its global debut in 2017, the social media behemoth has been a popular commodity. But is it possible to generate money on TikTok? Is TikTok paying you? Yes! As its popularity grew, it evolved from a place to view movies like Arnold Schwarzenegger chasing a miniature pony to a potential money stream for many content providers.
How many views and followers do you need on TikTok to generate money?
The hurdle to earning money directly from TikTok was substantially higher before December 2021. To monetize your account, you had to be at least 18 years old (which is still the case! ), have at least 10,000 followers, and have had at least 100,000 video views in the previous 30 days.
You might be able to apply for the TikTok Creator Fund if you meet those requirements. It’s not as simple as saying “1,000 views Equals $X” because the payment-per-view data have never been made available to the public. Once you’ve signed up for the Creator Fund, you can earn roughly two to three cents for every 1,000 views.
Payments, however, vary according on the quantity and reliability of views, the degree of interaction with the videos, and whether or not the content complies with TikTok’s Community Guidelines and Terms of Service.
For a period, the Creator Fund served as the primary passive revenue stream for well-known TikTok content creators. Then along came Creator Next.
