So, do we have any other streamers on here? I've just started streaming again with the aim of getting at least affiliated on Twitch.

This means I can earn revenue when people buy games via my stream (so the game I'm currently playing) and they can also subscribe to my channel. I'm not expecting £100's but if I'm playing games anyway then I might as well stream so it can be a small bonus.

I'm currently 54% of the way to being invited to the affiliate scheme so all I really need now is to push my numbers up, the biggest challenge is getting the follower count. I need 50 and I have 12 at the moment - which is good going in my opinion.

So, if we have any other streamers looking to get to affiliate/partnership then pop your link below so we can support each other. I'm happy to follow and host anyone :D

If you're not a streamer but have a Twitch account, consider following other Shedders for support ;)

I've given you a follow!!! I work on a site called micro-workers, I've seen jobs pop up on there for people to subscribe with twitch prime to a channel. I'm guessing you could do this for follows as well. I'm a regular twitch watcher of poker channels. The big streamers often give advice to smaller streamers...

1. Stick to a regular schedule
2.engage with your audience in chat
3. good equipment
4. be yourself

Hope this helps, good luck!!

Thanks @Dazza_Dazza

I'm attempting to do all of those, I just need the chatters to chat haha. For me it's all about forcing myself to talk to myself while playing, I mean I do it all the time anyway (joys of working at home with a husband who sleeps in the day and works at night) so it shouldn't take long for me to embrace that on screen ;)

Hi @Chammy

I know because I did it for Steve McNeil (from Go-8 Bit), but if you know anyone with PRIME they can ‘follow’ you via Twitch Prime and they get paid. It doesn’t cost the PRIME member anything but the Twitcher still gets paid.

Something to be aware of as you could promote that to help get extra cash without anyone actually paying any extra cash.

:)

I'm hoping to later in the year maybe, I'd love to do a 24hr charity stream. Tempted to do a few streams over the Gameblast weekend and have a link up for anyone who wants to donate.

Well, I'm excited to say that I hit affiliate today! So if anyone has a Twitch Prime sub they're not using, I'd be very appreciative to take it ;)

So what does all this mean then.

How does it affect your earnings?

It means I can earn. Until affiliate you don't earn anything.
start streaming you doing 20p spins on the TED slot and you shall have my eyeballs!

Thought I'd come and update here since I've been affiliate and earning for 2 months now.

I will tell you that it isn't easy earnings BUT it's my most enjoyable revenue stream so I'm more than happy to earn less for now. It's very much like blogging in that you slowly build it all up, you need to be active on social media, network with other streamers and build a community/following/viewership.

I'm sitting at 8 subscribers who all pay $4.99 a month, I get 50% of that which...I'm so happy about. I'm 5 off 200 followers which I'm hoping to hit after tonight's community night.

If I can turn this into a decent income then I'd be over the moon, I'd probably seriously reduce my blogging efforts (something I'm already doing in favour of streaming tbh).

Anyhoo yeah. Happy Cham is happy at the moment :D

Great news! Something to certainly build upon.

I would really push the 'amazon prime twitch' thing as that works well for the other streamer I know. :)

Been gaming myself for ears and recently been thinking of trying this as a revenue stream too on top of my job + dipping my toe into matched betting, it would be the perfect income aha no matter how little your earnings start if as! Maybe you should put a guide together how you got started @Chammy id deffo read it

It's something I'll definitely have a look at doing, I've learnt a fair amount in the last 2.5 months ;)

Back to designing my website!
Whoops.. I accidentally set my website up into a loop which has locked me out of the wordpress dashboard! (I did manage to get back in..)
So many questions, but very few answers!
It's looking like I might have to do some coding to get the look I want on one of my website pages... I'm sure I vowed never again last time I had to code something..
Couldn't we have left the EU before GDPR came in?
