SemaBOX, a Kenyan media-tech company, is proud to announce that total earnings by the SemaBOX Creator network has crossed the $48,000 mark. This represents and major step forward in the digital media economy.
The media-tech company is Kenya’s first specialist podcasting studio, and also Africa’s largest podcast incubator. It enables its clients to curate, produce, and distribute their stories and experiences across the globe through podcasts and vlogs. They have already reached over 135 countries and continues to expand the audience of African stories globally. The bulk of these earnings are via brand partnerships directly with the creators as well as earnings on content platforms such as YouTube (for the audiovisual podcasts).
“SemaBOX was built by creators and for creators. And so a large part of the work we do at SemaBOX (after production) is the work we do to help creators earn revenue.
We help to structure business models and revenue plans and de-risk our creators (through incubation) so we can put them on the path to reliable revenue,” says Dan Aceda Founder and CEO of SemaBOX.
The creator network size and the volume of episodes that have come out of SemaBOX are a sign that SemaBOX maybe unofficially Africa’s largest podcasting hub.
“In the last year we have been very highly focused on building our creator network. In fact, of all the podcasts that have been launched here at SemaBOX 20% of them are now earning revenue. This is something we are very proud of and we will continue to invest in creators,” Dan Aceda adds.
