For creators to make more ๐Ÿ’ธ!

Hey, folks! ๐Ÿ‘‹

How's it going? We'd love to know your plans for Halloween. Got none? Well, grab one of these recommendations and read away.

But before that, let's quickly go through our weekly round up of creator economy updates.

In today's Going Solo

  • Friday advice: Julia Child on making an impact

  • Discover a new creator: How Danny Miranda became a top 1% creator

  • News that caught our eye: Kick's Creator Incentive Program

  • Stuff worth watching: Phyllo x Thousand Face Club's new podcast: #AsktheExpert

Julia Child on Making an Impact

Books were written, movies and documentaries were made on legendary writer, cook, and TV personality Julia Child. Known for introducing the French cuisine to the Americans โ€” Julia didnโ€™t start out as a cook. She dabbled in various professions, including fashion writing and reporting before she found her calling.

Something that she said about how one can influence people stayed with us. ๐Ÿ‘‡

Psst. for those interested (and havenโ€™t watched yet), Meryl Streep played Juliaโ€™s role in Julie & Julia, streaming on Netflix.

How Danny Miranda Became the Worldโ€™s Leading Podcaster

The host of The Danny Miranda Podcast was only 13 when he started creating content. His podcast has 200+ episodes and is in the top 1% global podcasts. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

His podcast has featured guests like David Perell, Gary Vee, Tej Dosa, Colin & Samir, etc. and apart from the podcast, he also writes a newsletter and is currently building a podcast for Lucky Trader.

We wrote a Twitter thread about his journey that you can check out. ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ

Kick Wants Its Creators to Make More Money

And why wouldn't they? ๐Ÿคท

Kick is back with its second season of Creator Incentive Program, where the chosen creators will be paid hourly for their streams. Tubefilter reports โ€œThe 33 creators included in the Programโ€™s first class averaged about 200 new paid subscribers and 1,500 new followers over 30 days.โ€

In an official announcement, Kick spoke about the importance of streamers and live content, and mentioned it'll be back with a phase 2 in November, 2023.

Kick's Creator Incentive Program has some pre-requisites for creators

  • 30-day average CCV: 126

  • Average subscriptions per month: 239 (gifted or direct)

  • Unique chatters per month: 337

  • Stream hours per month: 89

Find out more information here. ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ

For Kick streamers, this opportunity is ๐Ÿ”ฅ! It's how many streamers monetize their content on the platform. And we're quite curious to see how this pans out because it helps not just macro creators; but nano and micro creators too.
