Surely you already know the concept thanks to other platforms like Twitch . But now subscriptions are coming to TikTok , so you can support your favorite content creators or monetize your account if you’ve already reached a sizeable number of followers.
Thus, the company’s own TikTok account has confirmed through a video that subscriptions are now available for those who want to offer something additional to their most loyal followers . This is an important change for a platform that until now was totally free for users, although it will still be free in most cases.
HOW MUCH DO TIKTOK SUBSCRIPTIONS COST?
As recently published, TikTok subscriptions would work in a similar way to Twitch. That is, for a price that would start from 5 dollars per month , we could support our favorite content creators to continue creating content.
But the reality is that according to the official information that TikTok has published, it does not make anything clear about the price that these subscriptions could have. The only thing it tells us is that those people who become subscribers to a channel will be able to have additional benefits, from new stickers to the possibility that the debates are only for subscribers so that a more united community is created.
So even if you decide you don’t want to pay to support your favorite TikToker, you’ll still be able to watch their content . You won’t be able to access this extra content, but if you want to enjoy the videos it publishes, you can do so without further complications.
REQUIREMENTS TO HAVE SUBSCRIBERS ON TIKTOK
Not everyone with a TikTok account will be able to count on paying subscribers. To prevent anyone from trying to use this social network to take money from us in unethical ways, the social network has imposed a series of minimum requirements to start applying this new function.
Thus, to have subscribers it is essential that you are at least 18 years old. This is an issue that is especially important in a social network frequented by many minors, for whom the temptation to earn money by “taking it” from other users can be very strong. You also need to have a minimum number of followers. Thus, accounts with less than 1000 followers will not be able to offer subscription programs , so you will first have to earn a community for free.
OTHER WAYS TO MONETIZE YOUR TIKTOK ACCOUNT
If you’re not sold on the idea of offering subscriptions, you’ll be interested to know that this isn’t the only way to make money on TikTok. The social network also has a fund of at least 1 billion dollars that is used to encourage creators to continue creating interesting content. Of course, it is important that we bear in mind that we must have at least 10,000 followers to access this fund.
And if you do not have a large number of followers, it is also possible that you can earn money thanks to the social network. For example, you can find a sponsor who will pay you some money in exchange for mentioning them in your videos. It is true that it is much easier to achieve it when you have many followers, but it is all about moving and trying. And if you have a business or offer a service, you can also use your TikTok account to advertise yourself, so that even if it is secondary, you would be earning money with your videos.
In general, if you want to make money thanks to TikTok, you need to first do some previous work to create a community .
