If you rely on creating content to earn a living, you’re probably aware of the ebbs and flows that come with a single revenue stream. Month-to-month your subscriber count fluctuates and how much you earn from tips can sometimes make or break your month. Not only that but relying on one revenue source can be super risky. If the algorithm moves away from you or if you get banned, all of your income could disappear. That’s why it’s so important to grow alternative income sources outside of your main platform.
In this course, we’ll go over popular platforms creators like to use to develop additional income streams, as well as some strategies for incorporating these platforms and growing them. We’ll also talk about live stream interactables that can help boost your revenue directly through your stream.
We’ll examine how even a Microsoft-backed livestream platform can fail, leaving creators scrambling with their livelihoods in jeopardy.

“As a full-time creator, reliable and consistent income is so important. A one-time donation can help with one-time expenses, like a medical emergency or a convention, but when using a separate platform to supplement income, it’s better to have something that you can rely on. Any career in content creation is already so variable, it’s important to find stability when and where we can.”
