Comprised of more than 200 million people worldwide and estimated to be worth $100+ billion, the creator economy is a new breed of small and medium-sized businesses. Not only do creators sell content, but also apparel, food, digital services, and more. 

But while content creators do everything a traditional business would do, they’re rarely treated as such. And for most, this business is a one-(wo)man show. 

Between trying to be taken seriously, efficiently overseeing every aspect of their business, and actually creating, many creators struggle to build sustainable careers. Others might lack the financial literacy or tools needed to successfully take their side gig to the next level. 

Fortunately, Creative Juice is changing all of that. The financial technology (fintech) startup provides banking and financial solutions to content creators. Creative Juice also funds creator businesses up to the tune of $2M. Check out the funding options here.

Creative Juice is a ‘one-stop-shop’ for creators running a business

Cofounded by Sima Gandhi and Ezra Cooperstein in 2021, Creative Juice is a fintech company that offers financial, business, and banking tools specifically designed for creators. This year, the company was featured on the Forbes Fintech 50 list and Fast Company’s Creator25 list.

Creative Juice provides creators with a full suite of business tools so they can keep track of crucial cash flow analytics, manage their revenue, invoice brands they’ve collaborated with, and more. The intuitive platform allows users to instantly access their earnings, partnership solutions, and investment opportunities via Juice Funds Refresh & Reserve

Simply put, Creative Juice is a one-stop shop for monetizing creators. They provide everything a content creator needs to successfully run and grow their business, including digital and physical debit cards, media kits to better connect with brands, team collaboration tools, Quickbooks integration to make tax time easier, and creator-centric reward programs. 

Creative Juice takes care of the business side of things, freeing you up to do what you’re best at: creating.

Next-gen banking for the creator economy with Creative Juice

Creative Juice is a powerful tool for all content creators, regardless of their platform of choice or size. It’s also valuable for creators who aren’t finance or business-savvy. Monetized creators aren’t standard 9-to-5 employees. They aren’t even your quintessential entrepreneur because many get paid by third parties. 

The creator economy is still in its wild west era. This means that most traditional financial institutions and banks are ill-equipped to sufficiently assist content creators. Many will have trouble finding financial services that support their unique needs. That’s what makes Creative Juice’s solutions so special: They cater specifically to creators. 

The company also offers educational resources. Creative Juice’s series, In the Know, helps novices navigate the creator economy by addressing common concerns faced by 90% of Juice creators, including how to organize your income and expenses and how to become an expert negotiator. Best of all, each course is fun, short, and understandable.

Finally flexible funding options on creators’ terms with Creative Juice

Creative Juice is now offering a new, flexible funding product to qualified Passionfruit subscribers which will be accessible to all creators this November. Called Juice Funds Refresh & Reserve, creators can effortlessly access upfront cash on their own terms for their existing YouTube content library, as well as funds for their future content revenue.

As a company that is passionate about better serving the creator economy, Creative Juice understands the struggles many creators face, including being locked into long-term inescapable contracts or straining to sell their content. Creators need flexible options that can be adjusted according to what stage they’re at in their business journey.

“Juice Funds Refresh & Reserve motivated me to make higher quality videos and hire a video editor. At some point, a business owner needs to start outsourcing and now I can pull the trigger to grow my business with easy up-front cash thanks to Juice,” he said.

But the Juice Funds Refresh & Reserve is just the beginning. Not only does Creative Juice make it easy for creators to invest in themselves, but creators can also earn early money.

How Creative Juice benefits the creator community

Jay-Z summed up the creator economy perfectly in his legendary line, “I’m not a businessman, I’m a business, man.” 

Content creators are businesses. They can create sustainable careers by making videos, podcasts, online courses, and more. But the rest of the world has yet to catch up. Many still view content creation as a hobby, passion project, or side hustle—not as a successful business. 

These viewpoints, along with a lack of financial resources, can dissuade many would-be solopreneurs from diving headfirst into a career in content creation. 

Creative Juice empowers creators to invest in themselves and grow their businesses. Now, through its first-ever referral program, Creative Juice is helping creators empower their peers. Called Juice Bucks, the referral program allows creators to earn up to $10,000 when their friends sign up and spend money with their Juice business banking account.

Here’s how Juice Bucks works:
