Twitch knows how important streamers’ monthly income is and wants to ensure that everyone can earn.

Twitch has announced that tiny streamers would be guaranteed a monthly stipend, encouraging them to keep making content. It has introduced a new initiative for streamers dubbed the Ads Incentive Program, or AIP, which guarantees a minimum monthly revenue and addresses one of the biggest concerns of individuals who spend hours broadcasting on the streaming site.

The AIP was designed to pay chosen streamers a monthly minimum amount of advertising money, according to the company’s blog post. Twitch will compute compensation based on the number of advertisements per hour and the total number of hours aired in order to do so.

A very well thought out alternative.

This initiative has been in the works for quite some time. Twitch has sought out qualified employees and high-level streamers in order to develop a practical solution that would assist smaller streamers who are choosing to discontinue broadcasting due to a lack of monthly earnings.

Streamers who participate in the program for at least 40 hours in a month might earn $100 for presenting two minutes of commercials each hour, $300 for three minutes, and $500 for four minutes of ads per hour.

“Having a reliable floor of ad revenue should enable you to better plan for the future, whatever that may look like. We hope it’s an important step towards empowering creators,” Twitch said in a blog post.

If you’re a small streamer or plan to make your streams your job, the AIP will go a long way toward solving the revenue problem. Although ads are annoying to many people, this program seeks to create a sustainable income system through advertising in the medium and long term.
