The New Creator Manifesto Podcast
A chat with Dan Runcie and Gina Bianchini on the future of the creator economy
I sat down with Dan Runcie (of Trapital) and Gina Bianchini, co-founder, and CEO of Mighty Networks, to talk about the creator economy survey that myself, Mighty and NonFiction released last year.
It was the largest survey of creators every published and in it, we identified some common struggles that creators are facing right now, alongside the solutions that are helping creators to find new models.
In this podcast, we covered all of this as well as the key trends creators should watch out for and what opportunities look like for the rest of 2022.
