So you’ve recently gained interest in streaming on Trovo and wonder if the platform is monetizable. Or, maybe you’ve been streaming on the platform and looking for ways to generate income from your hard work. Trovo is a growing streaming platform that offers many opportunities for streamers to monetize their content. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or just starting, here are some tips to help you maximize your earning potential on Trovo.
The Trovo 500 program is invitation-only and rewards streamers based on their watch hour targets and tier. High-performing streamers with strong viewership plus gift and subscription engagement can earn additional bonuses. To view full details on earning potential, refer to the insights section on your Trovo Creator Studio page.
Subscriptions are a great way to earn recurring income on Trovo. Fans can subscribe to your channel for a monthly price, and you’ll receive 50% of the money earned. Viewers can subscribe at three different tiers to their favorite creators ($1.99, $4.99, and $8.99, respectively). Each level unlocks access to more features such as subscriber-only chats and custom emotes.
Tips are a fantastic way to allow your fans to support the content that you work so hard to deliver. Fans can tip you directly through your Streamlabs Tipping page (which you can customize to match your brand’s overall vibe/aesthetic), and you’ll receive 100% of the tips minus a small processing fee—Streamlabs doesn’t keep any of your earnings. This is a great way to earn extra income from fans who want to support you but may not want to subscribe. Also, your biggest fans can set up recurring donations to put their support on autopilot.
Like many other streaming platforms, Trovo has in-app currency that allows viewers to “cast” spells in a live stream. The first, “Mana,” has no monetary value and is similar to Twitch Channel Points. Conversely, “Elixir” is a one-time donation (similar to Twitch Bits) that streamers can convert to “Gems,” redeemable for cash.
Elixir gifts: You will get 500 Gems for every 1000 Elixir gifted to you.
Mana gifts: There are no monetary values attached to Mana.
100 gems = 1 USD
Make and Sell Merch
Promoting a merch store to your Trovo audience can significantly enhance your revenue and boost your success as a streamer. Your fans will have the opportunity to buy custom merchandise and show support for your brand offline. The Streamlabs Merch store feature is a convenient way to establish an online shop, requiring only minutes to set up and completely free to sell t-shirts, mugs, hoodies, and many other fantastic items. Streamlabs will take care of the printing, packaging, and worldwide shipping, so you can focus on streaming.
P.S. If you are streaming on Trovo, you’d be happy to know that Streamlabs Desktop is integrated with Trovo, which means you’re just seconds away from enhancing your stream with your favorite widgets and tools.
As you can see, Trovo offers a wealth of opportunities for streamers to earn money and grow their channels. Utilizing these tips can maximize your earning potential and build a streaming presence on Trovo. Good luck, and happy streaming!
