Tango top 10 features to monetize your talents.
Live-streaming is a big business, with more and more people able to earn a full-time living from creating and streaming content.
And, as more and more people are live-streaming content, more and more people are consuming it too. In April 2019, 1,971 billion hours of live video was watched on the four main streaming platforms. A year later, that figure had doubled to 3,394 billion.
Rest assured that live-streaming isn’t going anywhere. The real challenge is to find a way to monetize your streams and choose the right streaming platform with the tools you need to success. Here are 10 features that make Tango a versatile choice.
Tango’s gifts system allows you to receive virtual goodies from your viewers and fans. These gifts translate into diamonds, the in-app currency, and more diamonds = more cash. When you’re ready to cash out, you can then turn those diamonds into real world money that you can redeem easily through Payoneer.
Live-streams on Tango are displayed to viewers through different categories of interest, including: Nearby, Popular, New, Music, and Dance. A musician, for example, can take two bites out of the apple by ranking in Popular and Music, showing up in two different lists to gain more exposure. By constantly creating new content and gaining more viewers, you can rank in the desirable Popular tab.
Tango’s leaderboard functionality tracks the most popular streamers of the day, the week and all-time. It goes without saying that if you’re able to appear on this leaderboard, it’s a great way to get noticed by people who are looking for their new favorite streamer. And of course, more eyeballs = more gifts and more revenue!
Tango Moments is a unique feature to Tango, and so you’d be a fool not to take advantage of it! Essentially acting as a sort of highlights reel that can be viewed by people even when you’re not streaming, they show the top moments during your live-streams and preserve your reactions for posterity.
Another great asset to Tango's Happy Moments feature is that these short, engaging clips can be shared directly to Instagram and other social media sites, promoting your streams and bringing in more viewers. You can also boost your income on the platform by specifically asking your viewers to send you gifts to help you create more top, shareable Moments.
Once you’ve earned at least 10,000 diamonds on the platform, you can set up an exclusive group chat that’s only available to exclusive friends of your choise. This is an ideal tool for increasing your revenue on the platform, because you can create a Live Family for your biggest fans and top gifters. A great way to build a supportive community on Tango and to engage with them constantly.
The advanced statistics that Tango provides give you granular feedback on your live-streaming performance - allowing you to learn what’s working and what isn’t. You can dig down to look at your earnings from each day, along with the durations of different live-streams and the number of new followers that you received. You should keep your eyes on these statistics and try to improve upon them over time.
The features in Tango are geared towards helping you develop your community and respond to any comments that you receive. You can view all of your followers in your profile, follow the most active of them back and start chatting with them. The more you engage with your fans, the more they’ll engage with you. And engagement means that your videos will perform better and ultimately bring in more gifters to contribute to your revenue stream.
Not all viewers are created equally, and Tango recognizes that, allowing you to distinguish between bronze, silver and gold VIPs to better focus on the most active gifters and supporters who can boost your income the most. You can even create special Private content that can be watched by people who pay a prepaid entry fee.
With that said, you should also treat every viewer as a VIP, which is why it is a good idea to pay special attention and give a shoutout to any new viewers when you see them. You never know what might turn them into long-term fans of yours.
Tango's Referral Program allows you to earn money by telling your friends about Tango! Every time someone signs up using your link, they’re credited to you as a referral. You then receive 10% of all of the diamonds that they earn in their streams for the next 6 months. Everybody wins!
You can access your Referral code in the Referral Program tab in the app.
Now that you know just a few of the useful features that help Tango streamers succeed and monetize their live-streams, you can start to establish your presence on the platform and begin earning!
As with any streaming platform, you can get the most out of it if you put these unique features, and many more, to work for you. The ten features that we’ve shared today should help you get started - and they’re not all the app has to offer.
