Metaverse this … Metaverse that …
These days, it seems like everyone is talking about the Metaverse (myself, included). Today, I am back with a new topic for content creators.
Let’s clarify a few things before we move on. The Metaverse is often defined as “a multi-connected virtual universe built on the internet that could stimulate and enhance real-world experiences”. For a simpler definition, Facebook describes it as “a set of virtual spaces where you can create and explore with other people who aren’t in the same physical space as you”.
The rapid development of Metaverses brought to light the opportunities that came with it e.g. real estate rentals, immersive learning programs, and now … content creation. According to industry experts, the Metaverse is the future and could be worth trillions of dollars. Content creators are predicted to be the first to feel the effects of the Metaverse as it has the potential to “radically change content creation forever”.
Despite the fact that the term Metaverse has only recently become a buzzword, it was originally coined by Neal Stephenson in his 1992 science fiction novel “Snow Crash”, which depicted a next-generation internet powered by virtual reality.
Mark Zuckerberg is one of the main people responsible for the term’s resurgence over the past year as Facebook changed its name to Meta and announced the brand’s transition. However, Zuckerberg’s version of the Metaverse is not the most widely accepted one. Most people are hoping for a Metaverse that is decentralized and governed by the community rather than a single entity or brand.
The creator economy, along with the influencer marketing industry, is worth $104 billion and the impacts of the Metaverse opportunities could be huge. With the use of AR and VR technologies, creators take their digital marketing efforts to a whole new dimension and interact with their audiences in an immersive and interactive environment.
Picture this. Your favorite musician is hosting a virtual concert on the Metaverse and, you, from across the world, can participate without worrying about geographical limitations.
Creators can use social tokens to monetize their fame within the Metaverse. The newly founded opportunities are not for creators alone but their followers and fans too. With the Metaverse, fans would be able to support their idols in numerous ways.
We have already seen what content creators do with Web 2.0. With the rise of the Metaverse and Web 3.0, the opportunities for marketers, creators, and influencers in that virtual world are just as promising.
There are a number of challenges content creators may face in the virtual world.
The Metaverse is a new avenue for content creators to move their business there in search of increased profitability. As with TikTok at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, there is untapped potential to explore in the Metaverse and Web 3.0.
It is unlikely that engaging an audience on Instagram or in art museums will become irrelevant. Those methods will still be effective but the Metaverse will definitely be a significant part of the creators’ future.
