Welcome to Creators.co - your platform to write about the topics you’re passionate about with an engaged community and an audience of millions.
Creators is the result of our mission to turn fans into influencers, which began in 2014 when we launched the Creators program on Movie Pilot. Since then, our Creator community has grown into one of the biggest and most engaged in the world. Think of Creators.co as your launchpad; write about the topics you love, and we'll help you reach the right audience and build your own network of engaged fans around your content.
What is Creators.co about?
Creators.co is the publishing platform where all content originates. You can write about anything on Creators - from lifestyle to technology to architecture - the platform is yours to mould. We also promote any relevant, well-written articles over to our sister websites: Movie Pilot, Now Loading, and Champions. If you write an amazing article that doesn’t fit within those publications, we have a home for your content on creators.co, where we promote the best articles by passionate fans around any topic you want to delve into. You can also create your own hashtag pages and contribute to any topic or community you're interested in - like #nutrition or #animation, for example.
How do I connect with the community?
How can I start my own hashtag page?
Simply #hashtag the word or topic you want to create a page around in your next post! For more info on hashtag pages, check out this post right here, which will explain (it's much more simple than you think!)
Why are some of my articles edited?
When you see that your article has been edited, it usually means we've selected it to be promoted on one of our websites and/or social media pages. These articles are seen by a large audience, and we have certain editorial standards, formats and SEO requirements to meet when it comes to the content we feature on our sites. If you're not interested in the promotion though - you can always opt out of optimisation in your settings. Be warned though- that unless your article is 100% perfect and doesn't require the slightest change, we probably won't be able to promote it if you don't allow us to make some cosmetic changes.
Where will my articles be published?
Your articles will first be published on your profile page on creators.co. That doesn’t mean they can’t be also featured on Movie Pilot, Now Loading, Champions, the Creators homepage and/or our social pages. Everything begins from creators.co and launches on a journey from there based on the topic, quality and relevancy of each article.
Can I post my content directly to your websites?
Creators.co is an open-posting platform where you can write about the topics you love, and publish directly to your profile. Whether it was written by a Creator or a member of the in-house team, every post on Movie Pilot, Now Loading, and Champions was first published on Creators.co. Each website gets filled with relevant curated content from Creators.co.
Each day the Movie Pilot home page has a particular topic or theme, and we look for Creator content based on that topic. The Creators.co homepage operates a little differently- it houses the latest Creator-made content each day, and showcases a wide range of topics. If you write about #music, for example, and we consider it to be a well-written, thoughtful piece, although this wouldn’t fit on Movie Pilot (TV and movies), it would certainly have a home on the creators.co homepage.
How do I get promoted on your other websites and social media pages?
The same way you do right now - post awesome articles, and we will take care of the rest! We read each and every Creator article that comes through, and have dedicated teams on hand to curate them to the right place. Your only job is to write and publish great content, and we’ll take care of transporting it where it belongs.
What happens if my article is not promoted?
Your article will still be available on your profile and on the latest page of creators.co. We’re always on hand to give feedback if you’re wanting to know why your article was not promoted - we have the Creators Academy course (free and self-paced!) for you to learn the fundamentals to really hone your skills and become a successful online writer.
What is unique about creators.co?
We're passionate about building communities around topics fans truly care about, so we've launched writing programs, and added more ways for you to connect and share with other Creators on the platform (such as on Creators Chat!). We’ve also launched the Verified Creators Program, to reward our most successful Creators with a revenue share for their work. We're constantly working on updates to grow and develop the platform based on your welcome feedback. We want to make sure we have the best creative environment possible to help you reach your personal writing goals.
What content will be promoted on Creators.co?
Creators.co is the place you can go wild with creative freedom! Our homepage is also curated content from our Creators - it is here that you have the autonomy to write about whatever topic you have a passion for, and if it’s a great piece, we’ll find a place for it on the Creators home page. On the creators.co homepage, our only pre-requisite is quality and passion.
What’s the difference between writing on Creators.co and any other blogging website?
With Creators you can leverage the reach of Movie Pilot’s massive network of over 30 million monthly viewers, and the growing audiences behind Now Loading and Champions. You will still have your own dedicated profile page, but you also have the potential to reach millions of fans. We have one of the most passionate, active and engaged communities you’ll find on the world wide web, so you will no doubt find others who share the same interests as you!
