Quoted from Nhpolarbear:
How much can be made on a Twitch Stream? Is it based on # watching or on commercials watched?
The #’s that fortnight draws is incredible. Didn’t I see 200+k watching yesterday? It was probably more.
Pinball should be so fortunate.
Several millions in a month. The best video I ever saw about this came from a steamer himself.
That said, a very small percentage actually make enough to be able to do it for a living, and nearly everyone at the top has made it that far because they have connections.
Tell them to give it a shot right now while they are still young. I am a high school teacher. I had a class of 20 kids talking about what they were going to do when they got older. I shit you not when nearly half the class said either a rapper (2) or a steamer (7). I told all the steamers that I would help them out being a fellow gamer myself. I got only 1 of them to get the proper equipment to try it out. At first only his friends would watch, but after a month, not even his own buddies would help him out. He gave up in a little under two months time, changed his plans to engineering (what a swap).
So if your kids wanna be a streamer, maybe you should help them try now so they can fail and experience what that feels like.
Quoted from PanzerFreak:
Read the other day that during the 60's the #1 thing kids wanted to be when they grew up was an astronaut and today it's a YouTube streamer / influencer...
Doesn't necessarily surprise me. It's whatever is popular at the time.
