Milton Keynes teenager makes £10k a day just from TikTok
Lip-syncing at home has turned into the ultimate money-spinner for this teenager.
Alicia Breuer, a 17-year-old from Milton Keynes, is making over £10,000 a day on TikTok.
The teenager made videos on the social media site to kill time during the pandemic and now outearns her parents.
Alicia went viral miming Katy Perry's Teenage Dreams and was picked up by a talent agency last July, and is now raking it in.
Her cash comes from promoting fashion and cosmetic brands including: Lancome, Urban Outfitters, Boohoo, Benefit, Fenty Beauty and Bershka, the Mirror reports.
Speaking to the Mirror, Alicia explained how this new found moneymaking venture has changed her short term focus, saying: “It gave me something to do during the pandemic when I wasn’t studying for my A-levels.
"I’m now able to make £10,000 some days, I’m going to focus on my videos – there’s no point going to university. The majority of my videos are lip syncing to music. None of them take too long. Even a transition video only takes an hour to make.”
Typical of TikTok, Alicia specialises in creating lip sync videos and transition clips where she changes outfit in a split second using editing tricks.
Jessica Henig, founder of digital talent agency Unlocked Branding, snapped up Alicia and explained to the Mirror how the teenager is able to make so much money. She said: “Some of our earlier clients now make £100,000 in one day, but that could be a deal for six months of content that is paid on one day. We have signed about 25 girls.
"When we approached them they only had about 20,000 followers, but they’re now earning high wages and making real careers and a lot are not going to university. We help them build their own businesses, like a fashion or skin care brand.
“They build out of TikTok and Instagram and YouTube, but can end up investing in a brand as businesswomen. Alicia also wants her own clothing range, so we will help her create her own website and she could get paid for personal appearances at events.”
