Are Musicians Making Money with Stage It? A live stream video service
Stage It, is a live video streaming service that has been around for several years. It works like this. A performer reserves a time slot around thirty minutes and performs live taking tips through the site. The viewer buys notes 10 for $1and tips the artist accordingly. For example a viewer who purchases 500 notes for $5 can pay the performer any amount or nothing at all. Musicians have increasingly been using the site in the last couple of years. They received mixed results according to their performance. Let’s take into account a few things that will affect your success if you’re going to try it. You don’t want to stumble out of the box. Do you have a lot of followers? Is your set up and presentation professional? The surroundings where you’re performing, is it a pleasant environment like on a patio with a pool or a well-lit stage in a club? Some broad cast live during an actual club date. Is the video and audio quality good or non professional? You don’t want to cut yourself short by using a webcam with bad framing and the computer mic. Set up an out board usb camera and use a quality mic into a mixer with effects echo, chorus, reverb and the like. Some go the expense or multi cameras and a digital switcher but that can run you a couple of thousand dollars.It’s not necessary but you could sequence your songs for a fuller sound. Be aware it could back fire like the person who performs and sound like a full band. The audience might preserve you as a singer with no musical ability. Taking these factors into account the musicians who made the effort and meet these guidelines did well. With 1,500 viewers, 70% tipping all of their notes the musician grossed $7’500 minus Stage Its fee of $2’775 leaving $4727 for the musician. Sounds great but there are several setbacks. You can’t do it too often or you’ll burn out you audience. Time slot is an issue. You’re in one time zone and your followers are spread across the continent. To remedy this you’ll need to perform at different time periods. Depending if you’re on the east or west coast you could find yourself up at all hour of the day and night. For example to start your performance at nine o’clock for west coast and you’re on the east you would start at one in the morning, or five in the afternoon for nine o’clock show if you’re on the west. Stage It limits your performances as well to two a day and there maybe limit on the amount per month. Needless to say acts that didn’t put in the effort didn’t do well, basically making very little. You put on a poor show, you won’t have return business. After all if you paid to see a group and they put on a lousy show would you pay to see them again?
