Advice on how to build the following:

Rubens believes appealing content is the answer. Content should be entertaining and engaging ‘to make a person come back for more.’ Keeping similar content and not confusing the audience with different videos always works in favour of a content creator. He implies to not give up and put in hard work to succeed.

How a huge following helps an individual or a brand?

Numbers matter, as Ruben weens. If fewer people are watching your content, there are fewer chances of you getting discovered. Good things will fall into one’s lap when more people are watching the content. The enormous following generates opportunities and paves the way for money. He believes 100,000 people watching the videos leads to exposure than 100 people viewing it. Large social media following allures money and opportunities.

How to monetize the audience?

Ruben considers three ways to monetize the audience.

  • Selling Merchandise: Selling your products and profiting from them is the easiest way. Creating the products when purchased using advanced booking or on-demand services.
  • Advertisement: Another way of earning money is through advertisement by signing a deal with an artist for a song promotion. It works by uploading a lip-syncing video of the artist’s song and get paid for it.
  • Brands: Promoting brands on your platform is the easiest way to monetize. When promotions are done rights, brands offer a lot of money to showcase their products and services.
