Meta Updates Its Monetization Program For Reels Creators To Ensure Top Stars Get Paid Well

Meta is making some changes to its monetization program for Reels Creators, the company confirmed today.

The goal is to ensure its platforms’ top stars are paid well, based on their performances and the type of content that clicks with the masses. This would be in opposition to the number of ads that are aligned with the posts they create.

The company first unveiled its Reels ads program in the year 2022 and now, it hopes to expand that to thousands more as the firm carries on developing some great models. They feel it’s to ensure the app’s top stars are getting their due credit and hence would give them more purpose of setting out great content for Reels on these apps.

As revealed by Meta today through one of its blog posts, they mentioned how tests for Facebook Reels’ Ads began in 2022 as they hoped it would be a great way for creators to earn more funds.

By making and sharing some engaging reels with the public, they hope to now reward them further not solely from ads played across such content. Now, it’s designed to ensure creators would be paid well for engaging content while they work on optimizing ad experiences for all kinds of people and advertisers.

This new update will help in addressing the inequities across the system as creators have zero input in the way ads are put forward across their posts. So Meta feels the emphasis now would be on generating engaging content and its top quality instead of on the right kind of Reels that would maximize advertising potential across the board.

The company also outlined in detail how it hopes this would work out. At the start, we’re saying hello to payouts in this test that would be determined by the great number of plays conducted. And the better such reels are, the more a creator can make money. And with time, they even hope to add some more great signals into such payments.

This seems to be a very similar approach taken on by arch-rival firm YouTube in terms of making creator payments from a mix of ad revenue for Reels as compared to making payments depending on what campaigns are on display.

Meta also hopes that more creators would now be able to join the bandwagon for monetization as invites would start going out to creators by the end of this week.

After they are added to this test, the company says its creators need to fulfill the whole onboarding process that entails terms and use acceptance with the right payment details.

From there, they would need to produce engaging Reels so they could earn more. Those who wish to confirm if they are a part of this program need to visit the Professional Dashboard and then resort to the section for Monetization Tools. And in case you are a part of it, you’ll see the feature for Ads on Reels pop up and you can select it.
