Let’s be honest, there is a lot of work and money that goes into creating exciting and unique YouTube videos. Just getting the equipment is an endless shopping list that might cost an arm and a leg and it’s far from guaranteed that you’ll make your money back with your first few videos. Not only do you need a decent camera, microphone, props and video editing software. which will easily set you back a couple of hundred big ones, you will also need to invest your time in creating content that will stand out from the rest. We’re talking storyboards, resources, set up, and producing the content itself which could take longer than the average working week.
With YouTube ad revenue crashing, there is very little reason to create content on YouTube at all, if your goal is to make money. The only way to successfully monetize your content is through sponsorship, touring, and merchandise. This is a long process and sucks the joy out of creating content for YouTube. YouTube should be fun and engaging, not a business strategy. However, what if we told you, you can make money, connect with your subscribers and still have fun making videos?
Spotlit is a social media platform that allows your subscribers or “fans”, as we like to call them, to pay a monthly subscription fee to see your content. This can range from posting pictures, videos, live streams, or even blogs. It works like any other social media platform but with fewer restrictions, meaning you can post anything you want!
