What Is a Content Creator?


While content creators have been around as long as we’ve been sharing stories and creating entertainment, the term itself is relatively new. The term emerged during the surge in digital media’s popularity over the last few decades.

The number of social media users now stands at 4.2 billion, with the average person spending almost 7 hours per day online. This explosion has created new opportunities for creators of all types to join the digital world.

But with an ever greater number of creators entering the dailyry day, it is becoming increasingly challenging for new participants to make a name for themselves.

Let’s look at what a content creator is, the types of content they can produce, and what aspiring entrants to this field need to know if they hope to succeed.

What Is a Content Creator?

A 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.

The term “content” is extremely broad and covers articles, features, blogs, social media posts, videos, newsletters, emails, etc.

Content creators are looking to entertain and grow their audiences before eventually monetizing this reach. Content creators can make money in myriad different ways, including:

Ad revenue
Brand sponsorships
Affiliate marketing
Online courses
Content Creator Types

There are two types of digital content creators — individual creators and those working within a company.

While individual content creators have become a new subset of celebrities, professional content creators are now an increasingly important part of audience development strategies.

Individual Creators

The 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.

The 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.

However, 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 content.

The 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.

The 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 “non-commoditized skills”.

The 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.

Individual 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.

But 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 themselves.

Content Publisher

Businesses also employ content creators to write blogs, articles, adverts and manage their social media presence as part of their wider digital marketing strategy.

These 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.

These content creators will either focus on B2B or B2C content marketing operations depending on the company’s target market.

Regardless of whether we’re 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.

One 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.

We’ve 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.

Let’s take a closer look at what it takes to succeed and how to create great content that will drive organic traffic.
