Live-streaming is one of those 21st century phenomena that’s still on the rise and showing no sign of going away. According to data from thought-leader Neil Patel and Grand View Research, the live-streaming market will be worth over $70 billion by 2021 and $184 billion by 2027.

Don’t listen to those naysayers who say that live-streaming platforms have already reached saturation point, because there’s still plenty of room for them to grow. Indeed, as more and more people turn to live-streaming as their first port of call for content consumption, there will be opportunities for more and more live streamers to earn a living.

But we’re getting ahead of ourselves, and if you’re reading this article then there’s a good chance that you’re already sold on the concept and you just want to get started. That’s where this article comes in. We’ll be showing you how to get started with your first live-stream using Tango. Let’s jump on in!

How to Get Started with Tango as a Live Streamer:

Register for an account

The very first step to getting started is for you to sign up for an account.

Download the Tango app to your smartphone and follow a few simple steps to create your account. Make sure to choose a secure password and not forget your login details. After all, you can never be too careful when money is involved, and you don’t want someone else stealing your hard-earned diamonds.

Set up your profile

Once you’ve created your account, you can start setting up your profile. It’s a good idea to provide as much information as you can, and Tango will give you all the prompts you need to fully complete your profile. You can access your profile by clicking on the button in the top left of the screen, as shown below. This is where you can edit any part of your profile, see your followers, fill coins and redeem the diamonds that you’ve earned along the way.

Photos and Statuses

While Tango is at its best when you’re using it to live-stream, you can also use it to post photos and statuses that go out to your feed. This is a great way for you to personalize your profile and to show people what makes you tick and why they should follow you. As a general rule, the more you show who you are, the more fans you’ll get and the better you’ll perform on the platform.

Set up Payoneer

If you want to make money from Tango, then you’ll need to create a Payoneer account and link it up to your Tango account. Payoneer is the payment processing platform that Tango uses. It allows you to take the diamonds you’ve accumulated throughout your live-streams and to translate them into real-world cash.

For you to be able to convert your in-app diamonds into money, you’ll need at least 10,000 diamonds, which are equivalent to $50 (5,000 diamonds for your first-time redeem!). You can redeem up to 400,000 diamonds ($2,000 USD) per day and typically receive your money within 24 hours.

Start Streaming

Once you’ve got everything else out of the way, you’re ready to start your first live stream. One of the best things about streaming on Tango is that there’s a ready built audience on the site just waiting to discover you. They’re online 24/7, day and night, which means that you can start live-streaming at any time and there’ll be people around to watch from all over the world.

To get started, log in to the app on your smartphone and then the camera icon on the homepage. You’ll be prompted to pick a preview image and to add a title, and you can also choose between public and private streams. You can even set a minimum gift account to set up paid streams for premium audience members.

Share on Other Social Networks

Sure, it’s possible to build an audience purely through Tango, but you’ll find it much easier if you also link to your Tango account and promote to your fans and followers from your other existing social networking sites. This is particularly important in the early days when you’re just starting out, although if you use Tango as your main streaming platform then you’ll also want to keep promoting it over time to make sure that people are coming in and checking out your streams.

Check Your Analytics

Tango is like any other live-streaming platform in that it goes out of its way to provide useful analytical data to its users. These tools - located in the Statistics tab in your Profile settings - can be super powerful when you’re trying to evaluate the success of your live-streams, and they can give you some pointers on what works and what doesn’t so that your future streams are the best they can possibly be.

Keep Improving

Building on from the last item on our list, there’s no point in checking your analytics if you don’t take what you’ve learned and use it to improve. Your goal should be to continue to get better over time, constantly testing out new approaches to figure out what works best for you and your audience.

Everyone is different and no one else can tell you the exact strategies you should use or the paths you should take. Instead, you need to learn to rely on a combination of instinct and analytics. The good news is that when you get it right, you’ll be able to tell, and it’ll be your analytics that will give you the information you need to show that.

Conclusion

Getting started with live-streaming has never been easier. Tango is specifically designed for people who just want to get started as easily as possible, which is what makes it so appealing to new users.

We’ve shared all of the information you need to get started with live-streaming, and so now it’s over to you to put what you’ve learned into action. The good news is that all you need to do is to decide what you’re going to stream and then you’re ready to get started. Have fun streaming and we hope you continue living your life on Tango!
