Amazon’s Twitch Helping Artists Make Money During the Pandemic | The Motley Fool

The platform has partnered with Bandsintown to give artists a simple way to earn some money doing live-streams while live performances are on hiatus.

Bandsintown and Twitch announced a partnership to enable musicians with more than 2,000 followers to access Twitch’s monetization tools when streaming live events. Artists have to first create a Twitch Channel, which is free.

Through Twitch, streamers earn money by accepting subscriptions from their viewers and offering Bits to Cheer, which are virtual goods viewers can purchase to Cheer in chat. The performers get a piece of that revenue. Bandsintown also said its fast-tracking the application process, which normally takes two to five business days.


Now with Amazon in the streaming game you will want to ramp up your Amazon specials and placement. It might not be iTunes but it HUGE Prime subscription service will have new eyeballs and ears on your artists catalog.  Check out all the details and call us if you want ideas how to jump on the bandwagon.

#AmazonCart: Twitter and Amazon Partner to Pair Commerce and Conversation

Users can now link their Twitter and Amazon accounts and add items to their cart by simply replying to any Tweet with an Amazon link bearing the hashtag #AmazonCart. I can see this making somewhat of an impact on music sales if handled correctly. Setting up social media campaigns where you are targeting your fans on sales on Amazon, can lead to a better chance of the music ending up in their cart. 


Check back next month on the progress and some of the campaigns we run and the results we find! Want CountryWired Inc to work with your artist? contact us!
