While streaming may start out as a hobby for some, many look to make it a career, or at the very least, a thing that can help them earn revenue. When it comes to Mixer, there are two different ways that streamers can earn revenue from their streams, one of which involves becoming a partner with the company.
Unlike Twitch, there is no affiliate program for streamers to join on Mixer, but the company does offer what it deems as open monetization for all. This allows pretty much any and all streamers to earn some form of revenue from their streams, provided they submit a form to Mixer that verifies their identity and also sign up for the Partnership center. As for becoming a partner, below, we'll look at the requirements to get into the program.
How to join the Mixer Partner Program
To become a Mixer partner, you'll have to meet certain metric requirements and also pass a quality check that Mixer does, which essentially looks at your profile and stream and makes sure nothing is too offensive or incorrect. Current applicants will have to meet all of the following metrics to be considered for partnership:
- An account age of 2+ months
- More than 2,000 followers
- 12 or more days of streams per month
- 25 or more hours streamed per month
- Account must be following Mixer's Terms of Service and Rules of User Conduct
Should your account meet these requirements, you can apply for a partnership pretty easily from your account settings. Afterward, Mixer will assess your profile, and according to them, will look at a range of things, including Professionalism, Uniqueness, and Community Building, as major factors that it considers while making a decision.
What are the benefits of becoming a Mixer partner?
Similar to how Twitch's partnership program offers some added benefits, Mixer also strives to make its partners feel truly appreciated. According to the company, partners get "both priority feedback and priority support." This means that of any support tickets that come in, partners are usually seen to first and foremost, and will be connected to a special Partner Discord server that helps them connect with Managers who help to fix any issues.
Partners also receive a free code for Mixer Pro and a free code to subscribe to their channel, of which they can giveaway to anyone they want. Along with that, partners receive two emotes from the first day of becoming a partner, and receive two emotes every time they reach a certain subscriber threshold. Emotes not only make a channel more lively but give creators something to strive to attain, as it can make a community that much more vibrant.
Of course, the biggest thing that partners receive is a portion of their subscriber revenue. Mixer is also working to give streamers a portion of advertising revenue as well, which it says is coming soon. All in all, there's plenty of benefits worth aiming for as you climb to becoming a Mixer partner, so completing that goal feels just as great as it should.
