Are you wondering how much money people on TikTok actually earn? Well, here’s exactly what the app pays its creators per view.
Since TikTok blew up in 2019, there has been a steep increase in the number of people who want to make videos on the app as their full-time career.
Everyone wants to be a TikTok star like Addison Rae or Charli D’Amelio, but how much does TikTok actually pay you through it’s Creator Fund? Let’s find out.
How much does TikTok pay per view?
- 2-4 cents per thousand views.
TikTok has not officially announced how much it pays its creators, and the specific amount differs from person to person.
However, influencers who use TikTok’s recently launched Creator Fund have reported that TikTok pays them between 2 and 4 cents per thousand views.
To put that into perspective, that means that if your video got 500,000 views, you would only make $20, which certainly doesn’t seem like much at all unless you’re consistently getting millions of views.
So how do TikTok creators make their money?
How do TikTok stars make their money?
If you only get paid 2 to 4 cents per 1,000 views, then how do TikTok stars earn so much money?
Some of TikTok’s biggest creators like Charli D’Amelio and Addison Rae often get up to 60 million views on their videos, and they post daily. So, even their measly 2 to 4 cents per video would add up to a hefty sum annually.
However, most of their income actually comes from sponsored posts, product placement, and merchandise, not ad revenue.
When creators gain a large following on the app, brands will pay for them to advertise their product in their videos, known as an “integration”.
Integrations usually start when a creator has around 10,000 followers, and the more followers you have, the more you’ll get paid by brands.
Can you make TikTok a career?
The question everyone wants to know is can you actually make TikTok your full-time career? And the answer to that really depends on how much you’re willing to work for it.
If you’re dedicated, consistent with your videos and are getting a significant number of followers and views, then it certainly is possible to make TikTok your job.
However, you wouldn’t be able to survive off the Creator Fund alone.
The only way to truly make enough money on TikTok is through integrations, and the only way to get integrations is to have a lot of followers who interact with your videos.
