So you've seen all these ads and campaigns, and you want to get in on the action. You're not alone! It's easy to see how much money is being spent on UGC creators right now, and why it's so exciting. If you want to know why and how you can start as a UGC creator right now, keep on reading.
If you're not familiar with UGC (user-generated content), it's basically anything that's posted on social media that was created by a user and not the company itself. It can be everything from photos, videos, and even reviews.
Ready to start your own UGC creator career? You're in luck: I'll tell you how.
First, decide which region you'd like to focus on. In the US, UK, Australia, and New Zealand, there are plenty of opportunities for content creators to make money from their creativity! Being a pioneer UGC creator in Asia and the Philippines, I take it as a challenge and a big opportunity!
Next up: figure out what niche you want to go into. Do you love beauty products? Looking for new hobbies? Or maybe you enjoy sharing recipes with friends on social media? There are plenty of options out there for UGC creators, so find one that speaks to you!
Now that you've got an idea of what kind of content you want to create and how much time you can dedicate to it each week or month (or however often), it's time to reach out to brands! Make sure they know what type of content they're looking for and how much they're willing to pay for it. If they're just looking for organic UGCs (content created by users), then set up a meeting with them so they can see what your style looks like and get comfortable with working with someone new before sending any money over.
Let me reiterate -- here's why you should start today:
1. It's easy! All you need is a phone and some creativity!
2. There are tons of brands looking for UGC creators—and they're willing to pay for it!
3. You can make money without leaving your house or spending any money on equipment or software!
