VK Donut: Cash for Content Creators, Exclusive Content for Followers

Thereís probably a community whose content you particularly enjoy seeing in your news feed. Now you can thank this communityís creative minds by supporting them monetarily through VK Donut: a tool for content monetization.

All you have to do is to set up a monthly subscription to the community, and its managers will give you special access, for example, to some exclusive content or a sneak peek at their upcoming projects. They could also give you the ability to leave comments or participate in private contests, special offers or meetups. Both sides win: fans get more content and opportunities, and creators earn money and develop their work.

How does VK Donut work?

It all happens within VK communities. Managers enable VK Donut, enter the minimum monthly subscription price and tell their prospective donors what treats await them. After this, a block with a Donate button will appear in the community. All you have to do is click it, enter the sum you want to donate and choose whether you want to pay by card or VK Pay.

And youíre all set! Now, every month youíll be sending money to the communityís content creator. Theyíre happy, and youíre happy!

When subscription-only content is added to a community you support, itíll also be sent to you in a private message from the VK Donut community. This way, thereís no chance that youíll miss any of the new, interesting content coming out.

If you want to learn more about how to enable this tool in your own community as well as set up and manage subscriptions, you can check out the VK Donut community.

What could content creators offer donors?

From favorite recipes to special content and advice on donorsí own creative works, the possibilities are endless. It also depends on the theme of the community, the minimum subscription price, and how much time and energy the creator has to devote to creating bonus content.

Here are a few ideas that content creators can take and use as inspiration.

Early access. Donors get their hands on new content before anyone else. Gudim is planning on doing this by giving his donors access to new drawings a day before he releases them for the rest of his followers.

Commenting ability. Only donors are able to comment on Duranís work. And who knows? Maybe the content creator himself will join in the conversation!

Bonus content. Are you interested to see how the artist or blogger creates their content? And what about finding out ďwhat the author actually meantĒ? Well, these are some things that content creators could offer their VK Donut donors. Chilik, for example, is going to show and explain some Easter eggs from his works.

Participation in creation. Let your donors choose the theme of your next artistic work or influence the fate of a character in your story. Why not give it a try?

Personal communication. You could arrange exclusive meetups for donors or hold discussions with them in comments or a separate chat. The poet tymanoff is ready to give his followers tips on their work and in the future, organize a closed chat where heíll announce main community events and might publish articles and courses.

Discounts, contests, sales. Through VK Donut, you can give away merch or concert tickets, and offer contest winners the opportunity to work alongside you on a new project. Businesses can easily set up secret sales by posting promo codes in donor-only posts.

Why is VK the best platform for supporting content creators?

When we treasure someone, we want to make their life better. Therefore, when selecting a platform to support creators, we need to take into account what's convenient for them. And in this regard, VK Donut is the ideal choice.

Lowest earning fees

Only 5%. No other platforms can offer content creators such a rate.

Income depends solely on the creator

The more interesting the perks are, the more often fans will choose to support the creator, which means more money as well. No other limits.

Universality

VK Donut is so flexible that it is suitable for any community. It doesnít matter how many members it has or what its theme is, whether itís a page with its own music, funny stories about animals, memes, or a collection of posts on business or blogging.

Right on VK

To set up VK Donut or become a donor, you donít need to leave VK. Your entire audience is already here, and itís just as easy for community managers to use the new tools as it is for your followers. Thanks to this, the total number of money transfers coming in might be noticeably higher on VK than on other platforms.

VK Donut brings together those who create content and those who enjoy it. And it proves once again that when developing the VK content platform, itís better when content creators and their audiences work together. Support your favorite community today so you can enjoy its content tomorrow!
