    The Importance Of A Creator’s Niche

    In 2021 alone, there were 1.21 billion monthly active users on Meta’s Instagram platform. That makes up over 28% of the world’s internet users. As of January 2022, there were over 1 billion monthly active users on TikTok. So, how do you set yourself apart as a Creator to grow an engaged authentic audience? 

    Being a Creator on social media means you must create digital content regularly. In 2022, we’ve seen Creators spend the majority of their time curating short-form video content and static image posts for platforms like Instagram and TikTok. Yet, there are a variety of factors that go into making an everyday social media user a true Creator.

    Finding what type of content you want to create is unique to each Creator, but should be geared to directly engage with an intended audience. To solidify yourself as a Creator in a specific niche, the goal should be to create an authentic relationship with others. Once that is done, metrics to track and grow are post impressions, likes, comments, and reshares. 

    We’ve looked at some of the amazing Creators in the Glewee Community and studied what they’ve been doing best over the past months to solidify their nice in the industry and expand their Creator Marketing efforts. The one similarity they share best: knowing their niche.

    If you’re a Creator starting out in the space, spend time learning about your own interests and what you like to post about. From there, further identify your niche and begin to create content that you enjoy and will resonate with your audience. Then, it’s all about consistency!
