EXPOSING HOW MUCH SNAPCHAT SPOTLIGHT, YOUTUBE SHORTS, TIKTOK CREATOR FUND, IG REELS HAS PAID ME

Hey guys, it's your girl Jenny and your favorite dog Ollie! Welcome back to our channel. Today, I want to talk about exactly how much money each platform pays me for a certain number of views. You may have heard about the TikTok Creator Fund, Instagram Reels, and YouTube Shorts, and I tested them all out to see which one is worth it and how much money I made. I've got all the receipts, so let's dive in!

Snapchat Spotlight

Let's start with Snapchat Spotlight. Starting from November 2020, Snapchat started paying creators a crazy amount of money for not that many views. People were getting paid six figures just for reposting their TikTok content. So, I decided to give it a try. I spent a week reposting my TikToks on Snapchat Spotlight, which was quite time-consuming because you can only post every five to ten minutes. But it was worth it.

One of the TikToks I reposted was from 2019, where I drew a tattoo of my mom. It received about 240,000 views on Snapchat Spotlight, and they paid me a total of 17,617.60forthatsingleTikTok.Keepinmindthatthisvideodidntevenhaveamillionviews.Iwasamazedbyhowmuchmoneytheyweregivingforrelativelyfewerviews.However,ittookafewmonthsforthemoneytotransferintomyaccount,andIdidntreceiveanynotificationsorpaymentforanothervideowith400,000views.Overall,Imade17,617.60 for that single TikTok. Keep in mind that this video didn't even have a million views. I was amazed by how much money they were giving for relatively fewer views. However, it took a few months for the money to transfer into my account, and I didn't receive any notifications or payment for another video with 400,000 views. Overall, I made 17,617.60 from Snapchat Spotlight.

YouTube Shorts

Moving on to YouTube Shorts. One of my YouTube Shorts videos received 3.5 million views, which is a significant number of views on YouTube. For those 3.5 million views, I made 114.51.ItsdefinitelynotalotcomparedtowhatImadeonSnapchatSpotlight.ItsworthmentioningthatYouTubeShortsdoesntcollectmuchadrevenue,especiallyifthevideocontainsmusic.However,Ididnoticethatvideoswithoutmusic,likevoiceovers,canstillgenerateadrevenue.My3.5millionviewsvideocollectedaround114.51. It's definitely not a lot compared to what I made on Snapchat Spotlight. It's worth mentioning that YouTube Shorts doesn't collect much ad revenue, especially if the video contains music. However, I did notice that videos without music, like voiceovers, can still generate ad revenue. My 3.5 million views video collected around 15 in ad revenue. So, for YouTube Shorts, I made $114.51 from 3.5 million views.

TikTok Creator Fund

Let's talk about the TikTok Creator Fund. Initially, I had some issues with the creator fund when I first joined it in 2020 or 2021. My views dropped significantly as soon as I joined the fund, so I removed myself from it. However, I rejoined a few months ago after hearing that things had improved. Currently, I have around 16.3 million likes on TikTok, and I've been making TikToks for a couple of years. From the TikTok Creator Fund, I've made a total of $116.14. It's definitely not something I can make a living off, but I'm grateful to be getting paid for what I love to do.

Instagram Reels

Lastly, let's discuss Instagram Reels. Instagram has not given me any money or views from Reels, so I can confidently say that I have made zero dollars on Instagram Reels. However, I was invited to their monetization program a couple of months ago, but I haven't seen any bonuses or payments yet. If I do, I'll definitely share it with you all.

And that's how much each platform has paid me for a certain number of views. I'm happy to answer any questions you may have, so feel free to reach out to me through Instagram DMs or email. I love chatting with all of you in the comments section. You're all my internet besties. Thank you so much for watching, and I'll see you next time!
