Are You A Creator Yet?
You write posts on places like Medium, Hive or even LinkedIN but do you think of yourself as a creator?
If not, why not?
When are you going to start?
We’re entering an exciting time to be a creator. Never before has the opportunities for creators been greater. Never before have creators had as much control over what they do as now.
If you haven’t thought of yourself as a creative, you might take a look at some of those who are creatives:
- video channel (Tiktok, YouTube)
At one time to publish a video, record music, write articles, sell art and serve a broad audience it was almost impossible. Some required expensive equipment to even create. Now, with an internet connect and something as simple as a smartphone you can get started creating and finding your audience.
In the past, powerful gatekeepers decided who was able to create and reach a large audience. Those times are gone with a range of opportunities the internet has brought. The control you have over those opportunities and the return you receive are starting to overtake many of those opportunities and to your favour.
Here are some of the ways you can get paid:
- ebooks and books,
- affiliate commissions,
- paid communities
- creating their own physical products
- licensing deals,
- public speaking,
- NFTs, and more.
As creators build their audience and even communities around their product niches, consumers are willing to pay a lot more to support their favourite creator.
As a creator, your potential market is virtually unlimited. There are over 7billion souls on this planet and an ever increasing number connected to the net. You don't have to reach them all to generate a good income. Build 1,000 responsive fans or 100 super fans who evangelize your work, you'll have a strong base to work on.
As you dive deeper into your creative field, your skills and how you think will gain proficiency and expertise. As you build your tribe, you'll find yourself reaching out to learn and share with other like-minded creators. The network you build will become the your superpower to growth and opportunities.
Publishing online is an opportunity engine and it’s yours to drive. If you’re creating content on Hive, you already have experienced the power to earn through your own creative efforts. Now think about how you can spread that out, how many streams of income you can create.
Make the world your oyster and be a creator.
