Whether you're a local business or part of a fortune five-hundred company; you've likely heard about businesses utilizing live streaming. It's an enormous business model, with plenty of applications for attracting customers, selling products and services, and raising the overall revenue of your company. You might be curious how this is possible. I mean, isn't a live stream just a live-action video? Where's the money in that? Let's quickly go through some stats and analytics that'll get you excited.
While live streaming, particularly through the popular platform Twitch is a massive industry now, it had very modest beginnings. The Twitch company first started as Justin. tv, a small website devoted to hosting live streams of video game events and online multiplayer games. While initially a niche market, Justin. tv would continue to grow and eventually rebrand over the years; pulling in massive companies like Nintendo, Sony, and E3 Expo to host events on the site and lead to huge influxes of traffic. Now, Twitch is a multi-billion dollar company, which allows streamers to work from home providing content for their fans. They can also earn money through subscribers, donations, and tributes from their followers. Additionally, Twitch doesn't take any cuts from donators; just the app you use to process your payment.
Those who host or utilize a live streaming app and platform will quickly notice the variety of ways you can generate revenue for your business. At the first level, simply hosting video streaming and allowing users to sign up for accounts and watch streamers allows them and your company to earn income from donations and subscriptions. Additionally, you can utilize advertising on the sidebar, in between breaks on the live stream, or before the live stream starts. This massive, open space for clickable advertisements helps you generate passive revenue by including these on your page. Moreover, you can consider adding premium features both for streamers and users alike and keep it behind a paywall. So as you can see from just these select, simple examples; it’s fairly easy to find ways to gain revenue through streaming. Not only that, it provides you with a free avenue for advertising your own products and services through your streaming platform.
