Every day you hear about some influencer making millions from sharing content on social media. But just quite how remains a mystery for many of us, so on TikToker has revealed exactly where her money comes from:
Star Holroyd became something of a viral sensation last year, sharing nostalgic videos about things we all remember from or school days and slang words that would mean nothing if you didn't grow up in Britain.
Her account now boasts more than 690,000 followers, with millions liking and sharing her content.
And she's become so successful that she's quit her day job to focus on her career as an influencer.
She recently talked her followers through just how well she's been doing over the past few months.
And it turns out that she's been absolutely raking it in, making almost £8,000 in one month alone.
In a video posted to her account, Star explains how her money comes from four different sources.
The first is the 'Creator Fund', which she says she averaged out around £3 or £4 a day back in March, and which rose to as much as £33 in June.
This meant that by the end of last month she had made £1,000.81.
The second form of income is freelance work, such as her channel about British slang - a job she quit back in April.
Star also makes money through something called affiliate links, which is where she earns a commission - usually between eight and 12 percent - from products linked on her page.
While it's not something she has done too much of, she reckons she's made around £400 from it over the past three months.
And finally, there are straight up ads and sponsorships.
"This is where I make most of my money," Star explains.
"It's the same as if you saw a billboard or a magazine advert, but they're advertising on my social channels."
In April, she made a whopping £5,000 - pre-tax and commission for her manager - and in May, she made a bit less, just £1,700.
However, things picked up again last month when she made a colossal £7,800 from ads.
"So, all together from ads, I've made £14,500," says Star.
"But as you can see, it changes dramatically month to month, and I've got no job security."
Adding: "I'm so grateful that I get to do this for a living, and thank you so much if you're one of my followers - this happened by accident, I was just trying to keep entertained during lockdown."
