It is recommended to use iOS devices using the Amazon app to go live. It tells the following statistics:

  • Total number of viewers
  • Total number of clicks
  • Number of unmuted viewers

28:15 – How do Jim and Chris get the products?

Even though they are Amazon influencers, guys buy some stuff they need for streaming. You cannot just sit and wait for a brand to come to you and offer a product for promotion. To make sponsors want to make deals with you, you have to invest in your show. 

Also, sometimes some brands don’t participate in this kind of promotion, but you prefer to use their products instead of one offered for sponsorship. Use the tech and products you like.
