How to monetize TikTok to earn money with your videos

The main way to monetize your TikTok account is through the tools provided by the platform. For example, in some countries, users can access the TikTok Creators Fund. What is it?

It's a payment system that rewards users who create quality content that generates views. Similar to other services, such as YouTube, TikTok pays its users directly. They can collect the profits they have earned from their account.

As we will see below, there are more ways to generate income with TikTok. However, this is the main and the only one specifically aimed at content creators.

How to join the TikTok Creators Fund to make money

As we have seen in the previous section, the TikTok Creators Fund, which will probably soon become the Creativity Program, is the easiest way to monetize the content you upload to the platform. But how to access it?

To access the TikTok Creators Fund, you must meet the following requirements:

  • Be a resident of one of the following countries: United States, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Spain or Italy.
  • Be over 18 years of age.
  • Have at least 10,000 followers.

Therefore, it is necessary to have over 10,000 followers if you want to access the TikTok program to monetize content. However, keep in mind that this is not the only way to earn money with your account. Read on to discover other ways.

How to earn coins with live streaming on TikTok

Besides the Creators Fund, there are other ways to earn money on TikTok. The first one we will learn about involves earning coins in live broadcasts. First, to make a live stream with your device, you must fulfill a single requirement: to have more than one thousand followers. If you do, start a live broadcast by explaining something or doing an activity.

If people like the content you offer, they can buy coins with real money and send them to you as a gift. These coins will be accumulated in a virtual wallet in TikTok, and when they reach a certain amount, they can be exchanged for real money.

How to earn money promoting brands on TikTok

In addition to the money you can make from live streaming, partnerships with brands are often very profitable for content creators. Once you get some relevance on the platform, brands will come to you to promote products or test their services.

  • Have posted three videos in the last 30 days on the TikTok profile you want to register on the platform.
  • Have more than 1000 accumulated views in the past 30 days.
  • Comply with TikTok rules.

If you meet the requirements, all you have to do is register. On the website, you will see a QR code you must scan with your phone. It is essential to have TikTok installed.

How to earn money with TikTok Bonus, TikTok Rewards, or referrals

TikTok offers rewards to those who invite their friends to use the platform. It works just like any other referral program: if someone you recommend the platform to signs up, then you get a reward.

Sometimes, these rewards are gift cards for certain e-commerce platforms, so they are equivalent to real money. To access this program, tap on the gift icon in your profile and follow the prompts. For example, in Spain, where the program is called TikTok Bonus, the only requirement is that you are over 18 years old; in many other countries, it is known as TikTok Rewards, being the same referral program, accessible from the gift icon on your profile page.

How much money you can earn with TikTok

There is no standard fee or fixed amount of money you can earn per month on TikTok. If you create quality content that attracts many users and generates thousands of views, you will open more ways to monetize your content.

Even if you can't access the Creators Fund, you can collaborate with brands in your sector or accept contracts to promote products within a specific niche. The key lies in making the most of the platform and publishing content that interests your community.

How much does TikTok pay in the USA?

The platform does not disclose the TikTok Creators Fund fees, but they are estimated to be between 1 and 4 USD cents per 1,000 views. In other words, in the best-case scenario, a user who achieves 1 million views will earn 40 USD for their content.
