TikTok's Best Financial Creators Recognized by Debt.com during Financial Literacy Month

While TikTok’s potential shutdown persists, Debt.com awards the platform’s most reputable financial content creators this April for Financial Literacy Month.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., April 2, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — While TikTok devotees gather at the Capitol in Washington and lawmakers attempt to pass a nationwide ban on the popular app, Debt.com is concentrating on the financial content creators – and recognizing the best.


I make a difference. Credit literacy content makes a difference! Debt.com FinTok Awards shine a spotlight on creators.

The subset of the app known as #FinTok has more than 4.5 billion views and is a popular outlet for advice. The dark side is that it contains misleading information that could land people in financial or legal trouble. For the second year in a row to help filter through the noise, Debt.com recognizes creators providing practical and actionable financial guidance.

“The FinTok Awards shines a spotlight on the valuable contributions of creators who empower users with trustworthy financial guidance in an increasingly digital world,” says Don Silvestri, Debt.com President. “Unlike many other award programs, there are no fees associated with being nominated. Our award program is solely talent and knowledge based.”

One of last year’s winners, Markia Brown, AFC from @theMoneyPlug says “Winning the award from a well-known and respected organization such as Debt.com showed me and the world that my dedication to providing accessible credit literacy content makes a difference, and that accurate and accessible financial literacy content can be found online.”

Brown extolled, “I make a difference. That award inspired me to expand my knowledge beyond credit, and a few months later, I earned my Accredited Financial Counselor designation through the Association for Financial Counseling & Planning Education®.”

The public is asked to cast their votes and select their favorite creators from the list of nominees in each category:
