Q: Out of all your areas of interest, which ones are you most passionate about or have the most fun doing?
A: I’d probably say gaming and connecting with people. Through gaming, I’m able to talk to a lot of different people, make them laugh. I enjoy their company during this time of lockdown. That was the only way to speak with people and not be in an environment where you could get sick.
Q: Would you say you get the same benefits this way as opposed to face-to-face conversation and interaction.
A: Yes and no. Yes, because you’re conversing with others. But I also say no because there are times you need that face-to-face interaction. Touch base with everybody. Some of your loved ones and close friends.
It’s different because, yes, it’s social, but you don’t get the same level of intimacy. You’re in a much more private environment.
Q: How long have you played games, and how long did it take you to get monetized?
A: I stream on Twitch. I started doing live streams more often. It took me a week to get monetized. I had a large base, but I also had people helping me out, pushing and getting me to that position.
As of now, I wouldn’t say it’s profitable, but I am gaining traction. Within the next couple of months, I’ll be able to handle streaming. It’s not your typical job, but it’s. There’s a lot that goes into it. You always have to be learning, and you always have to do stuff for your stream. tough
Streaming is a business. You’ve become an entrepreneur. Do what you need to do to keep your business afloat and what you need to do to progress your business.
Q: How long did it take you to grow your audience, and what tips do you have for others who want to build their base?
A: When I started streaming, I had 25 followers, and that was it. Just today, I hit 135 followers. I suggest that you get involved with communities, talk to people, visit other people’s streams.
Hang out. Join their discord, and be active. That’s when they start noticing you. They may go to your stream and find out what you’ve got going on.
Oh, and don’t stream for the money. Money is not your goal. The point is to connect with people, touch their lives, and inspire them.
Figure out what makes you happy when you stream. Always be open and honest with your community. If you need a day off, let everybody know. Use your platform to cater to your audience.
