Do you want to make $1 million dollars from the comfort of your own home? Snapchats’ Spotlight is the new way for users to earn huge amounts of money solely by posting content and getting views.
Snapchats’ Spotlight came to fruition as an attempt to compensate for loosing users because of the rise of Tik Tok and Facebook Reels. This feature was introduced in November 2020 and users are able to upload short videos, watch content, and leave feedback including liking, commenting and sharing with friends. There is was a daily flow of over $1 million dollars being given out to creators of content that go viral.
As mentioned in my last blog, this is also a smart marketing move on Snapchat as everyone during 2020 was trapped in their homes due to COVID-19 and had ample amounts of time on their hands to create content, the money was a perfect incentive. If you break down this move by Snapchat, they wanted to draw more creators away from Tik Tok and bring back previous users that stopped using their application as much. In turn, they created a money incentive for the users with the best videos. As well, the principle of Spotlight is that there is a never ending cash flow, once you receive payment for one video, it makes you want to create more, which checks off Snapchats’ box of user retention. This new feature of Snapchat proved to work, as in the third quarter of 2020, Snapchat had 249 million global daily active users, whereas in the fourth quarter of 2020, they had over 265 million.
But does Snapchat actually pay you? Yes, that’s why users got so obsessed with this new feature. One of my personal friends began posting on Spotlight just when the application launched. He already had a significant following on Tik Tok but decided to hop on the Spotlight wave. He was just a regular teenage boy who was enrolled in college in Los Angeles. After uploaded similar science experiment videos for his Tik Tok to Snapchat, in two weeks he became one of the top performers on the platform and made over $3 million. He saw Spotlight’s opportunities and ran with them, he now has his own Snapchat show that he uploads three times a week and he’s living his best influencer life in LA. New York Times even wrote an article about his Spotlight success to encourage others to start posting on the app.
Snapchats’ Spotlight is a new way for average people to make ridiculous amounts of money by creating watchable content. The algorithms on Spotlight are ever-changing, but users say it’s easier to go viral on this app, than on Tik Tok. While Snapchats’ global daily users will continue to grow, get your content out today and who knows what Snapchat will pay!

Hello, you captured me right from your title. Easy read with a variety of images and data backing up your blog. Ive never used Snapchat but you definitely got my attention. I would love to see their books for Return on Investment and like the other reviews would love to meet someone who profited from this too.
I was intrigued by your title and was looking for information to see if you have to be in the U.S. to be paid or can you have a Canadian account and be paid. The fact you actually know someone that has made serious dollars doing posts on Snapchat is so exciting. My kids use Snapchat so I have an account just to see what they post. I would love to be able to learn more about Snapchat and I think it would be neat to posts funny videos of my grand-puppies. I do wonder if they have had success in gaining back customers.
