$2k for streaming machine. Is it worth the investment? [entrepreneurs]

4 years ago from , Digital Product Designer @FAD

Hei DN. This is my first post here so be cool. Or else. The question is relevant because I want to stream when designing/coding.

So i'm addressing to people who have a background in social media/marketing. Is it worth the investment to gather audience and monetise it afterwards? I already have a YouTube channel with 1.2k subscribers which I've gained pretty quickly, so there is for SURE a demand for educational content. What do you think? Would you watch a dude's stream designing? (planning to get professional gear like cameras, mics, etc)

    Sure you can stream, been doing that for some time, and the experience is overwhelming. Really fantastic.

    About the 2k$, you can get it a lot cheaper. My pc cost me about 900$ + monitor 300$, plus camera and mic 100$. And i can run AI, PS, AE, IN at the same time im streaming. Look for a lot of RAM memory card.

    GL with that and you can also put your youtube channel in here for us :)

      Thanks for the reply! I've attached the link to the original post.

      Would you mind providing your stream channel link? Have you had some reasonable donations/monetisation so far? Really glad to hear about your positive experience :) motivating me to do so.

        my channel was about gaming too. But i'm thinking about starting a youtube account focused more in graphic design.

        About donations and monetisation, didnt go so well, in the time i was doing it, twitch didnt have "twitch creative" and i had loads of kids watching it. i wasnt focused on my target. i was just doing what i like.

        if you need some more information we can have a chat: ismaelbranco@outlook.pt

    I stream twice a week for Webflow. Here is my setup:

    I basically compared and researched what streamers on Twitch used.

    Hope this helps :)
