    Hey all, so I have a HUGE audience on one of my IG pages (around 100k+ followers, 10-12 million impressions a week, 11-13k likes per post and tons of comments). Not going to state the niche because you would easily know who I am, but my followers seem to enjoy gaming content as I've been posting stories lately of watching gaming streams like Summit1g and others. I get hundreds of DMs responding to the story and they're all either subs or know who they are.

    So what I am thinking about doing is getting back into gaming content (was into it back in 2010-2013 and quit because of school). Specifically, streaming on Twitch. I think I could get partnered pretty easily, especially with advertising the stream through this IG. What do you guys think? What are your experiences with streaming?

    Edit #1:
    I have a great PC for streaming, 2 different audio technica mics from my YouTube days, and 100/100 Internet. So I have the equipment and plenty of bandwidth to do it.

    I'm an avid Twitch addict, and gained a small following streaming some years ago.

    With your ability to build a following, and the fact you have such a large following already, I'd say it's totally possible.

    But, I will add Twitch (especially nowdays), is very competitive.

    You've gotta have a strong personality, and be able to entertain 500+ viewers for long periods of time.

    Streaming sounds like a joke, but it's actually a 40+ hour a week job and is extremely mentally taxing and socially exhausting.

    If you do start streaming, send me your link! I'd be happy to check it out. Good luck with your adventures.

    Another thing to consider, is that until you get to a point where you're consistently holding 3000+ viewers per stream you're not going to be making much money, you'll probably end up making much more money with your Insta in the long run.
