As a new live-streamer, one thing you quickly realize is that there are a ton of different live-streaming platforms. From small, to huge, and everywhere in between... and there's a place for everyone!
But, with so many options, it can be difficult to figure out which platforms are the best for you to build your live-streaming audience. Where you should focus your time?
Lucky for you, we've got the insider info that you need! IvyEntertains is an influencer marketing and talent booking agency that helps creatives (like you) build massive audiences and income through live-streaming. We know our way around the space and we've got the insider info for you! Here are 5 of the top live-streaming platforms to check out today... plus how to pick the best for YOU. 👇
#1 BIGO Live
BIGO is the best platform for brand new live-streamers. We have live-streamers on our team who have started at 0 and grown to 10k followers... Not only that, but you can get paid as a brand new live-streamer on BIGO. Even before you have a huge audience. Just by going live consistently, you can make $800/ month! This platform is also great for established influencers who are growing other platforms. They can perfect their content by going live on BIGO and then funnel the new audience to other platforms. Clearly, we love this one!
#2 YouTube Live
Obviously everyone know about YouTube, but that means tons of competition too. YouTube requires more content planning and it's best if you stick to a niche. We recommend starting with BIGO where you can get paid right away and then move to Youtube once you're more clear on your content plan.
This is the place to be! Everyone knows that TikTok is growing fast, but most people still aren't going LIVE. The reality is TikTok live is the best way to grow your audience, and our team loves helping live-streamers grow their audience on TikTok.
#4 Facebook Live
Think of this as a starter platform... if you already have a Facebook following, try going live and testing content. Once you're comfortable going live you can switch over to another platform where you can grow faster and get paid.
Twitch is know for being great for gamers, but honestly anyone can shine on this platform. It's another solid place to get started.
So which one will you try first? If you want to start making money from live-streaming, but you're not sure where to start... we would love to connect. We're looking for live-streamers to join IVY! Get more info here.
