Alex Zaccaria, co-founder and CEO of Linktree, shares: "It is impossible to imagine our online ecosystem without creators. Without them, it simply would not exist and their influence and prominence is growing by the day. Our team's mission is to develop products and integrations for creators that evolve with them and make their lives easier. The feedback we are driving as a business enables that process and demonstrates why we built this business in the first place – for our creators. For many creators, finding ways to monetize their passions has been a challenge we are more determined than ever to solve."
Eric Jacks, Chief Strategy Officer, Collab, Inc. who partnered with Linktree on this research, says: "68% of part-time creators make less than 1K. This vital research underscores how difficult it can be to be a creator, and just how important it is for creators to find partners, platforms, and services that streamline monetization opportunities. Linktree does just this, acting as a gateway to other revenue streams that contribute to monthly income and makes the creators job a little easier."
Creators can use Linktree to streamline their online identity, and to showcase and personalize their profile in the following ways:
Request links, Support Me links, and Affiliate links, all designed to streamline monetization.
