Earn 10x More Than YouTube with Muvi Live Paywall

Hey, live streamers! Are you looking to maximize your live stream revenues, but are still stuck in the Ad revenue drought? Read this blog to know how you can unlock the true revenue potential of your live streams by migrating them to Muvi Live Paywall.

You have nurtured a loyal subscriber base on your YouTube channel, that has taken years of hard work and lots of effort. So, you are now looking to generate maximum revenues from your live streams. But here’s the harsh truth: YouTube is collecting and keeping a major chunk of your livestream revenues! 

Yes, multiple sources have stated that YouTube keeps up to 45% of your live-streaming revenues. It means that if you have generated a revenue of $100 during your YouTube live, you will be actually getting only $55. 

So, now the question comes, how to earn more from your live streams? The answer is – Muvi Live Paywall! In this blog, we will tell you how Muvi Live Paywall can help generate potentially 10x more revenue than YouTube. Excited? So are we! So, let’s get started. 

Issues With Current YouTube Live Stream Monetization

Before we get started with the benefits of Muvi Live Paywall, it is important to understand why you actually need it. Currently, a very limited number of live-streaming platforms are available, and many of them are quite difficult to set up and require advanced technical knowledge. 

YouTube is easier to use and offers you a vast audience base. You can monetize your YouTube live videos by inserting ads, without any need for additional technical setup. Maybe that is why, YouTube has become the default live-streaming platform for many live streamers across the globe. 

But is it the best? Definitely not! Generating revenues through YouTube Live is extremely difficult for multiple reasons, like:

  • You need at least 4,000 watch hours and a minimum of 1000 subscribers to even enable monetization for your live videos. 
  • Your income solely depends on the number of viewers that actually watch full ads. On average, that number turns out to be just 15% of your total viewership. 
  • YouTube only counts specific ad interactions like viewing the full ad (without skipping) or clicking on the ad to go to the targeted page, in order to generate your ad revenue. 
  • Some of the viewers use ad-blockers, and many viewers simply skip the ads, reducing your ad revenues. 
  • YouTube will not allow you to monetize some types of content, including videos that have karaoke music. You cannot even monetize any live concert performed by an artist!
  • You have minimum control over the ads that YouTube will run on your videos. 
  • Lastly, YouTube will take a huge revenue share (up to 45%) of the revenues that you generate. 


So, to tackle all these issues, you will need a live-streaming platform that is easy to use, and lets you monetize your videos at your own will, without any eligibility requirements. In the best-case scenario, you get to apply pay-per-view monetization on your live videos, hence generating revenue from every single view, without solely depending on ads. 

This is exactly where Muvi Live Paywall comes in. Let’s explore how Muvi Live Paywall can be your best choice for live stream monetization.
