How to become YouTube, Trovo or Twitch partner

Every new streamer's major goal is to become a Twitch, YouTube, or Trovo partner because that's where the monetizing begins. Many streamers fantasize about this becoming their primary source of income, allowing them to concentrate on improving their visual appearance. However, many new streamers struggle to even reach the affiliate level, so here are a few tips on how to become a Twitch affiliate or a YouTube partner.

Here's a list of questions I'm hoping to answer in the next few lines.

1.What should I stream to pique people's curiosity and gain subscribers?

2.What sites should I use to promote my livestreams?

3.How long should my livestream be and how often should I broadcast?

Affiliates must meet the following conditions as of now. Twitch, on the other hand, may adjust the requirements as the program develops.

  • 1.At least 500 total minutes broadcast in the last 30 days
  • 2.At least 7 unique broadcast days in the last 30 days
  • 3.An average of 3 concurrent viewers or more over the last 30 days
  • 4.At least 50 Followers

For the time being, the minimum criteria for YouTube partnership is 1000 subscribers. Even though it doesn't seem to be such a huge requirement, many people are having trouble finding those 1000 subscribers.

For Trovo you can apply to the program via mail once you have at least 50 followers on Trovo and accumulated 400 hours watched.

Now that we've been familiar with the criteria, lets answer those questions

What should I stream to pique people's curiosity and gain subscribers?

First and foremost, we can go to to identify the most popular game livestreams and choose one to try our luck with. You must exercise caution because popular games may already be crowded, and algorithms may send your videos to the bottom of search results. You should choose a category with a reasonable number of viewers, but more importantly, something you are at least competent in; for example, if you have never tried an MMO, you should not begin with one unless your charisma can convert that stream into a sketch. Some people play new games on purpose because they are entertaining to see and that is what their audience wants. You should, however, keep your livestreams professional.

One thing to keep in mind is that you don't want to clog up your overlay with widgets and elaborate layouts. Your viewers want to watch you and what you do, so limit yourself to the most important widgets, such as your camera frame, some live counters, and a bottom bar if you're streaming on a phone using desktop OBS. Always keep the attention on yourself and the game you're playing because that's what you want to show the viewers, so ditch the complex layouts and stick to a few panel widgets. You'll thank me later.

What sites should I use to promote my livestreams?

Discord servers should not be used for advertising. Discord servers would just cause you frustration; I tried it myself using a refferal pipe, and the results were disastrous. The reason why Discord isn't the best place to promote your livestream, especially on servers with a large population, is that your message will just go deep in the chat, and only a small number of people will notice it. Most discord users immediately mute the server after their first post, thus there's a small probability they'll ever look at your posts. This was confirmed on both free and paid advertising servers, and the results are dreadful, with nearly no referrals.

Facebook streaming groups are a good way to attract a few followers, but, similar to Discord, if you join a large group, your post may be overlooked because many of the users in that group have their group alerts turned off. Find streaming groups with a population of up to 10,000 people to increase the odds of your message being noticed.

Create a streaming description and include all of your streaming platform links so that you can acquire viewers from all of your platforms.

Do not pay for fake subscribers; it is the number of viewers who make money, not the number of subscribers; even though subscribers and followers are the most important requirements for obtaining affiliate or partner status, viewers are crucial for making money from your streams, so you should focus on gaining organic followers and subscribers.

And, I purposefully saved this for last, TikTok is the ideal location to advertise yourself. TikTok is not only outperforming other social media platforms in terms of worldwide internet traffic, but it is also outperforming Google and its suite of services, such as Google Maps and Gmail. On YouTube, the chances of one of your videos going viral are infinitely higher than on any other social media platform. Create a branding account to match your streaming profile, be consistent when posting videos, include your streaming link in your bio, and watch your audience grow.

How long should my livestream be and how often should I broadcast?

Streaming sites want you to be constant when you publish, and the typical live stream time is one hour, but you can easily extend it to two hours and a half. You should stream anytime you get the opportunity, preferably everyday. Simply start your livestream 10-20 minutes before it goes live, set a countdown timer, and notify your viewer base that you're coming live so that when you appear on the screen, you'll already have a viewer base with whom to connect and make your livestream more interesting.
