Here’s some good news for content creators who use Instagram Reels…
Instagram is working on an update that will allow creators earn for posting Reels. (How about that for 30-seconds of literally anything!)
This model in development is similar to that of Snapchat’s Spotlight feature which offers payouts to the top-performing Spotlights per day.
Snapchat seems to have had a lot of success with this incentive and it’s evident in the 120+ million monthly users Snapchat currently has.
How Bonuses will work
Similar to Snapchat’s Spotlight clips, the ‘Bonuses’ incentive will be focused on Reels – which are short-form video clips.
The program would enable users to earn bonuses once they share Reels. From the outlook, creators will have to reach bonus thresholds in order to claim their earning.
