In this report, Triller explores the state of the relationship economy today and where it’s headed in 2023. You’ll get a bird’s eye view of how brands work with creators, what drives creator content, platform and partnership decisions, and how creator platforms are serving them. We also take a look into the impact of generative AI on businesses and creators and its impact on the creator economy as a whole. Lastly, with the threat of a ban on TikTok, we take a deep dive on the implications to creators and the opportunities on the horizon.
According to The Information’s Q1 Report for 2023, investment in creator economy startups has dropped, from $180 million invested in Q4 2022 in the U.S. versus ~$500 million invested in the space each quarter since Q1 2021.
Although brands have reduced their overall advertising budgets, including influencer marketing budgets, and venture capital is increasingly conservative about investing in this sector, the creator economy remains a healthy $100 billion-plus market and the number of people becoming creators continues to soar, but with new motives and incentives. In fact, a recent report by Insider Intelligence said that the Gen Z and Millennial generations of creators aspire to be business owners and look to generate income from their content.
In 2023, we will continue to see a shift in the creator economy as influencers seek financial and creative independence. The Triller AI Creator Platform and affiliate network are specifically designed to help achieve that goal. The Triller AI Creator Platform is a combination of sophisticated AI tools giving creators the ability to connect intimately with fans, distribute content across multiple channels, and access a variety of revenue streams – such as affiliate partnerships, premium content subscription and brand sponsorships. Through this platform, Triller will accelerate the shift toward a more empowered and independent creator economy.
