TikTok is sharing up to 50% of ad revenue.

The more you know about content creation, the better you are.

Oh, hello. If you’re the kind of person who looks for signs from the universe, here’s one for you: despite warnings and whisperings of a recession, people are still consuming (clothing, food, and health care, in particular) like there’s no tomorrow. If you’re a business, there’s never been a better time to get creative about new products. If you’re a content creator (hey, that’s you!) sitting on an idea, there’s no better time to launch it. Even Brad Pitt is releasing a skincare brand into the world – just when you thought there were enough serums on the market. The point? All the signs are saying that this could be a magical time for you and your burgeoning brand. 

Time for *you* to enter the chat.
