with the average person spending almost 7 hours per

for creators of all types to join the digital world.
with an ever greater number of creators entering the
dailyry day, it is becoming increasingly challenging

Is a Content Creator?
content creator is anyone who creates any kind of
content for an audience to consume. The term is now
most commonly used to refer to creators of content
for digital channels, such as websites, social media,
and video platforms.
term content is extremely broad and covers
articles, features, blogs, social media posts, videos,
newsletters, emails, etc.
creators are looking to entertain and grow their audiences
before eventually monetizing this reach. Content creators
can make money in myriad different ways, including:
Content Creator Types
are two types of digital content creators individual
creators and those working within a company.
individual content creators have become a new subset
of celebrities, professional content creators are
now an increasingly important part of audience development
first type of digital content creator is what most
denizens of the digital landscape are familiar with
the individual creator. The individual creator,
or influencer, is most prevalent across social media
platforms such as Instagram, Snapchat, YouTube, Twitch,
etc, and spawned the birth of what has been dubbed
the creator economy.
creator economy, according to Influencers Club with
research from Linktree, refers to more than 200 million
independent creators, consisting of community management,
content creation, management, and operations, as well
as on- and off-platform monetization solutions. These
creators are spread across fields as diverse as writing,
NFT-making, gaming, and streaming.
a Forbes report believes that the number of actual
creators in the creator economy might be much smaller,
at about 50 million, indicating that a small number
of creators are catering to a very large demand for
meteoric rise of the digital content creator, in fact,
has given rise to the phenomenon called the passion
economy. According to the World Economic Forum, the
passion economy is the large-scale rise of creators
driven to monetize their passions. It believes that
this content creator-led passion economy will be the
future of work.
Linktree research estimates that in 2022, there were
500 million passion economy users, defined as individuals
who use digital platforms in some form to monetize
value of influencer marketing worldwide surged from
just $6.5 billion in 2019 to $16.4 billion in 2022,
with a forecast to hit $24.1 billion by 2025.
influencers, by and large, can be viewed as focusing
on business-to-consumer (B2C) content marketing as
they look to build followings that can later be monetized.
not every content creator is a social media influencer.
Social media managers, for example, may create content
on behalf of brands, but may not be counted as influencers
also employ content creators to write blogs, articles,
adverts and manage their social media presence as
part of their wider digital marketing strategy.
creators focus on creating content that improves their
companies digital presence and boosts visitor
numbers to pages geared toward selling products or
services. For example, companies looking to build
a profile within a specific niche could choose to
regularly publish relevant industry news.
content creators will either focus on B2B or B2C content
marketing operations depending on the companys
of whether were talking about individual or
company content creators, however, the goal for both
remains the same create entertaining or educational
material that engages an individual or a business
while attracting enough organic traffic to make the
content creation process financially viable for creators.
of the most effective ways to ensure this is to follow
the content pillar strategy, which not only makes
content more easily accessible to users, but makes
it more easily discoverable by search engines.
delved deeper into this concept in our Publisher SEO
course, which has a decided module on content pillar
and strategy development. Check it out to understand
how and why this strategy works for content creators.
