In simple terms, a content creator formulates, creates, and publishes material intended for entertainment, instruction, or marketing. When we say content creation these days, we are almost always referring to digital content. Some forms of digital content creation include social media posts (the most recognized), blogs, newsletters, articles, digital marketing material, etc. 

Content creators may work alone and may create their own brand and following and then collaborate with brands at a fee; this is the case for most social media influencer content creators. Alternatively, content creators can also be hired by a company to work solely on their brand as in-house content creators. Content creators can also work on a freelance basis, and work with a handful of companies/clients at a go.

Unlike most professions, there is no traditional way to begin as a content creator. The only prerequisite is that you be highly creative, disciplined, business savvy, and that you produce engaging content. However, an educational background in a creative field such as graphic design, production, or art would be highly beneficial in building up your skillset and proving your capabilities to potential employers.
