TikTok pays content creators $0.02 to $0.04 per 1000 views. The amount of money paid depends on the geographical location of the viewers and quality of the videos. If the views are from USA,TikTok will pay $0.04 per 1000 views. If the views originate from Africa,TikTok will pay as low as $0.02 per 1000 views.
As a TokToker, you should focus on content that attract viewers from USA and other European countries—that’s what will generate decent income. You should also ensure that viewers stick to your videos for long—the longer the video the better.
When you have high number of followers, say 1 million, you stand a chance of getting many opportunities to monetize your content. Apart from getting paid by TikTok,you can also share affiliate links within the videos and make money through affiliate marketing. You can also get invites to events to entertain the guests.
Another way of making money on TikTok is by collaborating with a brand. They will pay you each time you show their brand on your TikTok videos.
Though you’ll earn up to $0.04 per 1000 views, you can make more if you get sponsored content as well as get booked to entertain in events. But that will only happen if your videos get millions of views—you really need to stand out in order to get booked.
TikTok pays less than YouTube. On YouTube, you’ll earn $0.5 to $5 per 1000 views, which is a good income. But the content on YouTube is of high quality and more useful to the viewers.
