Being a creator is fun, but not without its hurdles. The lack of a suitable outlet to express creativity, complexities and costs of building a website, accepting payments from customers worldwide—the obstacles are both numerous and tedious. However, we’ve come up with a solution that is about to make the entire process a whole lot easier.
Flutterwave recently acquired Disha to ensure creators can curate, showcase and receive payments for their hard work and creativity, seamlessly. This acquisition aims to grow the creator economy, particularly in Africa, and provide the tools and templates needed for them to showcase products and talents whilst receiving value for their creativity. What’s more? There is absolutely no need to know how to write a line of code.
With this, digital creators and creatives have the power to do business with anyone anywhere in the world. Coverage is unlimited. The possibilities are endless.
What to Expect
Disha Pages gives creators the ability to create optimised and customisable micro landing pages where they can include their social media bios and share their work with audiences. They can also include their Disha URL on their social media pages, which automatically updates as new content is created. It also includes a content area for writers, as well as the ability to include and import videos, photos, links and gifs from sites such as YouTube and Linktree. All 20,000+ creators on Disha can now explore their creativity and show off their work to a larger audience while communicating their value proposition using Disha pages.
