As seen by the article I put out after two weeks in the U.S., this trip was quite the learning experience. Not long after I arrived I realized that December would not be a high earning month, but more of an experimental month. I was pretty inconsistent with my timing which definitely affected viewer numbers, and compared to my 2-3 hours a day when I’m in China, I spent much less time streaming each day when I was in the U.S., often only about 45 mins – 1.5 hours. That being said, I was still able to earn 15,022 rmb (before tax) which is over half of what I usually make, which means that my average earnings staying consistent or possibly even went up a bit. This makes me optimistic that if I can have a more consistent schedule and pre-announced content my earnings and viewer numbers will go up once I move back to the U.S.
New Followers: 25,385
Total Number of Followers: 272,667
Average viewers: 17,000 views per session, but much higher simultaneous viewers, usually 2,500-3,000
Earnings before tax: 15,022 rmb ($ 2,184 USD)
Earnings after Chinese income tax: approx. 11,266 rmb ($ 1,638 USD)
Honestly the I was not very good about keeping track of my numbers during December and there is quite a lot of information missing, making it difficult to do an accurate analysis.
