How I Monetized My Viral Baby Yoda TikTok Account

If you go mega-vi, there are ways to make money off of your content. But be warned: It relies on going viral often, and consistently.

I WAS READY to record. My ring light was propped up against pillows illuminating my two diva Baby Yoda dolls. I fixed my phone on a tripod that took up half of my tiny New York City apartment. I tapped the round, red button at the bottom of the screen. The timer began.

10 … I checked my phone screen to adjust the framing of the shot. 9 … I zoomed in just enough to focus the camera on the dolls. 8 … I got down on my hands and knees, going through the bag of beauty supplies on my floor looking for lashes and glue. 7, 6, 5 … Found them. 4 … I slowly sat on the side of the bed, careful not to cause the dolls to topple over. 3 … I inched towards the dolls, ready to apply makeup to their rubbery eyelids. 2 … Let’s do this. 1 … Beep!

While many people go viral on TikTok, not so many make money from it. The video-focused social media platform has made it possible to achieve internet fame, with viral short video clips reaching thousands to millions of likes, views, comments, and shares. But most users do not know how to monetize their posts.

My TikTok triumph started in early November 2020, as I paced around my NYU dorm room searching for a place to store a wig I’d worn for days before Halloween. I couldn’t find anywhere to put it. Looking at the Baby Yoda doll on my desk, I thought it would be cute to put the wig on top of its green, plastic head. I admired my creation, filming a clip of her to Ariana Grande’s “POV.” That initial video racked up 40,300 likes almost instantly. Combining my great passions, beauty and the Disney+ hit series The Mandalorian, I became the momager of two fully glammed-out, “yassified” Baby Yoda dolls.
