With Jellysmack’s international expansion well underway, hundreds of creators around the world have been able to join the company’s fast-growing roster of digital video talent. And in February 2022, Jellysmack proudly entered a new leading market to skyrocket that growth even further. India is the latest country to launch the Jellysmack Creator Program, partnering with 22 of the top Indian creators to help amplify their social media success across multiple platforms.
The expansion into this key market is led by former Google and Dentsu executive, Vipasha Joshi. As Jellysmack’s new country manager for India, Joshi will combine her years of industry expertise with Jellysmack’s cutting-edge technology. The goal is to identify the highest-potential Indian creators talent and build an internal team to support the company’s primary objective of regional growth.
“The creator potential in India is limitless,” explains Joshi. “The interest and demand for video content is skyrocketing, and by signing some of the top YouTubers in India and taking them multi-platform, Jellysmack is paving the way for even more creator growth. With content in Hindi and English, we’re tapping into new markets and are able to help creators reach more fans than ever before. I’m thrilled to be a part of Jellysmack’s international expansion and lead the charge here in India.”
India joins Brazil, Australia, the UK, and seven other countries as the 11th to launch the Jellysmack Creator Program.
India is a priority market for the company for several reasons. The country’s creator economy experienced unprecedented growth over the last several years due to the pandemic’s stay-at-home orders. The region also boasts the largest global user base for Snapchat, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube, according to The Times of India.
In addition, with over 19,000 local dialects, India offers a unique opportunity for creators to repurpose top performing content into other languages. With an audience of 400 million and counting consuming video content, it’s no wonder that India is a market with significant creator monetization upside.
Jellysmack x Top Indian Creators
Jellysmack has partnered with top YouTubers in India to help them find success on traditional social platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat, as well as expand onto some of the country’s popular homegrown apps. As with all creators partnered with Jellysmack, the company will tap into its proprietary AI technology to help edit, optimize, and distribute their video content across social platforms to grow their communities and increase their earnings.
In addition to the Creator Program, Jellysmack is also extending its YouTube Catalog Licensing offering to Indian creators. Jellysmack offers upfront capital to qualified creators to license their past YouTube videos for a set period of time. Rather than dealing with the risky business of monetization, creators receive a guaranteed lump sum payment that is not a loan and never needs to be paid back. Creators can use the cash however they’d like, whether it’s to fund more content creation, launch a new business venture, or take a much-deserved vacation.
The creator revolution in India is expanding rapidly and shows no signs of slowing down. And with Jellysmack’s launch, featuring 22 of the best content creators in India across food, comedy, travel, and more genres, it’s only going to get bigger. Let’s meet the country’s latest additions to the Jellysmack Creator Program. Jellysmack is helping them grow their followings on Facebook.
