How Small Twitch Streamers Can Monetize Their Channel
Twitch Partner – To become a Twitch Partner, the streamer will have to meet the minimum criteria:
Having 75 concurrent viewers in the past 30 days.
Having streamed at least 12 times within the past month.
Streamed for a minimum of 25 hours the past month.
Even if the streamer has met these criteria, their application to be a Twitch Partner may still not be accepted. We’d instead recommend that smaller streamers set this as a goal to work towards. When reviewing your application to become a Twitch Partner, they’ll also review how engaged your community is (meaning you can’t just use bot viewers) and how often you stream. Being a Twitch partner will allow you to take home 50% of the revenue from a subscription. This averages to about $250 per 100 subscribers.
Some streamers do it for fun, and others would ideally like to turn it into a career or additional income stream. Whatever your reason may be, there’s no harm in monetizing the effort you’re putting in. Even if you’re in for fun, you can reinvest the revenue you generate to give back to your community.
