Changing Mixer for unpartnered streamers!
Q: Why would changing how things are run change how people look at streaming as a whole?
A: By changing how sparks are distributed among streamers it would enable smaller streamers within the community the hope they are looking for in order to grow their own channels. Within the Mixer community, Twitch community, and finally the YouTube live streaming community even though they are competing against each other they all have one aspect in common. The smaller streamers in many cases have the dreams or hopes of going pro and having a large audience watch them at once. If the Mixer community were to change the monetization of sparks where their Viewers, and Followers can subscribe to them for a much lower price such as $2.99 a month this would give people an opportunity not only to grow their channel but make extra money doing what they enjoy. Mixer would then keep 75-80% of the revenue that is brought up by the streamer themselves. These numbers could be negotiated at a further point in time depending on how many viewers are constantly in that persons stream, how many hours they are dedicating each month, how fast their channel grows and lastly, how popular they are within the mixer community.
Q: How would a smaller but bigger spark patronage work for streamers with 400-1.9K Followers work?
A: At this point in time streamers who are not partnered with mixer gain no revenue what so ever from the sparks they are given to their channel. I believe if we change this as well it would encourage people to being streaming and also continuing to pursue the growth of their channel. In order for this to work properly the streamers jar would have to be double the amount of sparks a parter would need in order to gain any revenue. Hypothetically if a mixer partner needs one thousand sparks in order to make fifty dollars, somebody who is not partnered would need two thousand sparks. This process could potentially go on into the hundreds of dollars, again depending on how popular they are within the community.
