Many users have a “comfort creator,” someone whose content they watch regularly and look forward to.
Whether your comfort creator is @miriamezagui, @cyrusveyssi, @patrickta, or someone else, these creators have found success by creating a safe space for their community through their content.
AI has become a hotly-contested topic on social media, with equally as many AI haters as AI lovers.
Because of this, it seems like creators have been feeling a little shy about embracing AI. However, increased pressures to create content that’s engaging for both customers and followers is pushing creators to start adopting AI.
26.2% of creators surveyed said they were in between using AI as a way to generate or inspire content creation, whereas 22.8% of users said they were very likely to use it.
While it seems like a lot, AI isn’t something you should be ashamed of or intimidated by. Caption writers, Chat GPT, and even platform-specific AI tools can help brainstorm new ideas and make content creation easier than ever.
For example, AI’s predictive capabilities can empower brands to foresee trends, behaviors, and outcomes.
Forbes named Gen Z the “pioneers of AI.” It’s just the beginning for what AI can do, and AI software and tool adoption will continue throughout the careers of the brave Gen Zers who are implementing it now.
Does the title matter?
For quite some time, there’s been a negative connotation surrounding the term “influencer,” with many not being comfortable identifying themselves as influencers. 35% of those surveyed said they thought negatively of influencers, believing influencers to be “unattainable”, “fake”, or “chasing fame.”
Brands and users alike are starting to use the word interchangeably with “creator.” For example, within the same group that thought negatively of the term influencer, 65% of people believe the term influencer to be “powerful”, “on trend”, and “stylish.”
We could say that creators want to be called creators, but influencers are called influencers because of… their influence! Both are doing their jobs.
Haters gonna hate.
Leave it behind.
Whether that be 3x a day or brand collab posts, it’s made making content less fun for creators.
Which is why we asked influencers and creators what type of content they liked to post most and we got an overwhelming number of people who liked static posts (81.8%) followed by short-form video (70.4%) and long-form video (15.3%).
So even though algorithms and brands are telling you when and what type of content to post, you are what knows best.
They follow you because they’re interested in what you’re interested in. Shopify reported that 69% of consumers trust influencers’ recommendations. TikTok Shop, TikTok’s native shopping feature, already has high user adoption and it’s because of creators sharing products they are using that it’s become such a success.
Relax, make the content you want, and the success will come with consistency!
When you start posting because you genuinely want to share about the products you use, what restaurants you’re frequenting, or tips or tricks related to your niche rather than because you have to then the views, follower count, and brand collabs will skyrocket.
We can't wait to see what you create.
