In my eyes, there are two kinds of people. Those who actively use TikTok and those who are too embarrassed to tell. I’m exaggerating of course for the humor, but TikTok has seen explosive growth across the world. The social media platform was a massive escape from reality during the lockdown, so it’s no wonder it was a winner. But if you live in Ireland and love the creative side of TikTok, the Creator Fund is not yet available for you.
What is the TikTok Creator Fund?
The people who create content are the lifeblood of social media platforms. This is the simple reason why TikTok encourages people to go live in order to continue to have followers. It is also integrated into the foundations of the Tiktok Creator Fund.
TikTok launched the Creator Fund to reimburse content creators based on the number of views and authenticity of those views as well as the level of engagement with the content. Basically, the better the quality, the more money makers can earn.
The Creator Fund total varies daily and is based on the number of videos posted by TikTokers on that day. For the next three years, the new social media giant has pledged £ 231million in funding.
Who is eligible for the TikTok Creators Fund?
Much like going live, the Creator Fund is for those who have done enough to show they are serious. At the moment, you must be a designer based in the US, UK, France, Germany, Spain, or Italy. You must be over 18 and have at least 10,000 subscribers. Your videos will need to have generated at least 100,000 views in the last 30 days, and you cannot have broken TikTok guidelines to get to where you are now.
Can I join the Creator Fund in Ireland?
I’m afraid not. Despite the fact that TikTok invests heavily in its Irish offices, we are not allowed to join the Creator Fund. Even if your account meets all the conditions, you must be based in France, Germany, Spain or Italy to benefit from the European Fund. The fund has proven to be popular in Europe, with tens of thousands of creators already registered. More than half of all eligible creators signed up.
Will the Creator Fund be launched in Ireland?
I’m sure, but who knows when. As TikTok said to themselves, “The Creator Fund is still in its infancy, and we are continually exploring new ways to improve the experience of our designer community and the way creators are rewarded.” This means that they are still trying to determine the markets in which he currently lives.
The TikTok Creator Fund is a great idea, but Ireland is a relatively small market. For now, keep creating content and hopefully your time will come.
