The Hollywood Strikes Are a Wake-Up Call That Creators Are Bigger Than Social Media

About This Report
The Hollywood strikes are revealing the full power of creators. They’re accelerating the diversification of platforms and revenue streams, and they will lead to more TV-like content and creator-owned media. Here’s how marketers, social platforms, and media companies should respond.
Table of Contents

Many marketers, social platforms, and media companies talk a big game when it comes to their creator strategies. But only some fully grasp or take advantage of creators’ influence beyond brand sponsorships on social media. Now the ripple effect of the Hollywood strikes on the creator economy will force more companies to walk the talk.

Key Question: How should marketers, social platforms, and media companies adjust their strategies as the power of the creator economy grows?

KEY STAT: Spending on sponsored social media content in the US will grow roughly 3.5 times faster in 2023 than social ad spending will—and it will remain ahead through 2025.
