How to Start Your UGC Better than Me

🙋🏻‍♀️ Hi Pals!
There are so much up and down in these two months. I just started my new student job and at the same time starting new side hustle, UGC, while my medical school also taking lot of my time and energy.
I found UGC for the first time on TikTok and start immediately from that. Not only that, but I thought, I’m going to make it and get that easy money in a month. Oh, how naive I was. Starting UGC and get that one paid deal is for short-term.
That’s where I realized, I needed to learn several new skills, I never consider before. Now, I have more knowledge and I want you to start your UGC journey better than me.

That’s where I realized, I needed to learn several new skills, I never consider before. Now, I have more knowledge and I want you to start your UGC journey better than me.
These are things I’d do if I can go back again:
 👀 Know What Good UGC Contents Look Like
  • I’d learn how Paid-Ad vs. Organic contents look like. For Paid Ad contents, I will follow Savannah on Twitter and watch all TikTok video in her Twitter Media.
  • I’ll also make an account for TikTok Ads Creative Center and look for the best performance Ads in my country.
📱 Understand The Culture on TikTok, Instagram, and Pinterest
  • Learn that if you are not familiar with TikTok, you need to learn how to build a community on TikTok and their powerful algorithm.
  • Making TikTok contents, is not the same with making multiple clips for Instagram Reels.
  • Learning that Pinterest is a powerful search engine for brands
🤝 Build Relationship with Brands and Find A Long-Term Client
  1. I’d follow brands I love on TikTok, Instagram, and Twitter
  2. Then I’d make a content for that particular brand and offer it on Instagram DM or their Marketing/PR Email, so I can get their email or phone number for further discussion
  3. And if they like my work and asked me to send them my portfolio and rates, I’ll discuss the agreement and deal with the terms
📚 Having Book Lists to Help Me Grow on This UGC Journey
  • Reading books acquired to be a good UGC creator can increase your income because you learn how to be a consultant for your clients, rather than just making contents without really knowing the impact your contents have on their customers.
  • Here are some book lists you need to read.
🫂 Joining an Established Community Outside Social Media
  • Now, we have a discord group for European UGC Creators.
  • Creators from all European countries can connect, have a webinar and biweekly meeting in English or their language. Or just talk all around UGC.
  • If you want to join the community, here’s the link to the discord group.
