5 Nigerian TikTok influencers you may start paying to watch
In what appeared to be the first of its kind, Chinese-owned video-sharing platform TikTok may have its Nigerian influencers charge subscription fees from their followers.
While the feature might not be available broadly anytime soon, TikTok has confirmed that already, it has begun testing support for paid subscriptions.
Sharing his opinion on the development, John Phillips, the General Manager at Zuora, an enterprise software company that creates and provides software for businesses to launch and manage their subscription-based services, stated this is a good development for TikTok and its influencers.
His words: “Subscriptions are a robust and stable business model which will enable content creators to start more intimate, long-term relationships with their audiences. If you want to work in the commercial arts today, your imagination should be wild and free, but your finances should be nice and boring. By exploring a paid subscription model TikTok is taking a step in the right direction towards making this a reality.”
