Entamoty talks about content creator's revenue

Entamoty said he has managed many content creators and is appalled by the figures they mention they receive as revenue when they grant interviews. He added that the percentage of digital creators who make real money is small and says that most of these creators mention outlandish revenue to get better brand deals when they contact them.

"Some of my colleagues get on the radio and TV to claim that they receive $5,000 from content creation. This is a huge lie. I manage the monetization of many content creators, and most of them do not receive that much. It is good when they mention these figures in public because when a brand approaches them with a deal, it will be a very good one," he said.
"In the digital space, only 5% of digital content creators make real money," he added.
