TikTok has become a phenomenon and is growing more and more. And, indeed, as the title of our article says, TikTok pays some of its users for making videos and uploading them to this social network.

If you are thinking of spreading your content so that this platform starts paying you to get a recurring income, I’ll tell you everything here.

TikTok Creator Fund

TikTok has created a program called Creator Fund that currently has millions of dollars that they want to allocate to reward those users who create content frequently and spend time on their TikTok profile.

In this way, TikTok benefits economically all those who have a professional account and repeatedly post videos that subsequently obtain a high number of views.

With this program, TikTok seeks to motivate its platform’s influencers to continue generating valuable content for their audience. But they also want to attract new users to start using and publishing their own content on TikTok.
