19. Curious how earnings work on LYKSTAGE?
Let’s break it down, nice and easy:
Watch Time Units(each unit is equal to 30 seconds): Every time you drop a video on LYKSTAGE, you're racking up Watch Time Units. Think of them as golden points for every second someone spends on your video. The cooler your content, the more you rack up!
Viewership Perks: Every 30 seconds a viewer spends on a video? Yep, they're eating up those Watch Time Units. And guess what? While they watch, ads pop up, and that’s how the bucks roll in for LYKSTAGE.
Who gets what from the ad revenue?
Creators: You get a slice of the pie based on your video’s Watch Time Units. More engaging videos? Bigger slice for you!
Viewers: Yup, even if you're just watching, you earn! It's our way to say, "Hey, your time’s precious, and we value it!"
Platform Upkeep: We keep a bit to make sure LYKSTAGE stays smooth and snazzy for everyone.
Fair Play: Other platforms might play favorites, but here? It's an even playing field. Our unique system ensures creators and viewers both feel the love. So, the more time you spend on LYKSTAGE, the more you benefit. Cool, right?
20. What is the minimum video length requirement to be eligible for monetization?
Individual and business creators need a minimum video length of 3 minutes, which is equivalent to 6 watch-time units.
However, for Business creators operating within the Media and Entertainment industry, a shorter video length of just 30 seconds, which is equivalent to 1 watch-time unit, is sufficient to qualify for monetization.
21. Why is time more precious on LYKSTAGE for creators?
Ever heard "Time is Money"? On LYKSTAGE, we're not just saying it; we're living it. Here's the deal: Unlike other places that pay you for fleeting 'Views', we value every second someone spends with your content. Why settle for earnings from a quick 30-second glance when you could be rewarded for every moment they’re engaged?
Let's paint a picture: Say 10,000 people watch your video for just 30 seconds each. That's 10,000 views, right? Cool, but that's where it stops.
Flip to LYKSTAGE: It’s not just about views, but 'Watch Time'. If those fans are hooked and watch for longer, every second they're with you is adding to your 'Watch Time' units - and that’s where the real earnings are.
Thinking of making a switch? With LYKSTAGE, every second really does count. Don't just settle; maximize your time and potential here with us. We value you and your content!
22. How can you achieve better rewards on LYKSTAGE with a smaller audience base?
Guess what? On LYKSTAGE, size doesn't always matter. It's all about the quality time your viewers spend with you. Even with a smaller crowd, if they're glued to what you're sharing, you're racking up those precious 'Watch Time' units.
Imagine: 10,000 people, each tuned into a 1-minute video on LYKSTAGE. That's not just 10,000 views. That's 20,000 watch time units!
So, even if you're still growing your fanbase, every moment they're engaged is cashing in rewards for you. Jump aboard the LYKSTAGE express, where your content’s value isn’t just in numbers, but in every shared moment! 💫🚀
23. How is LYKSTAGE switching up the watch and earn game?
Alright, let's talk shop. You know the old way? Where a 'View' was the big deal? They'd give you a pat on the back if someone watched just 30 seconds of your content. And let’s not even talk about those under-30-second videos that didn’t count for much. Well, that was then.
Enter LYKSTAGE, where we're all about 'Watch Time'. Here's the magic: Instead of just counting quick peeks as views, we're diving deep into how long folks are really tuned in. Every 30-second chunk your viewer watches counts as a unit. Got them hooked on a 3-minute video? Boom! That's 6 units in your pocket, not just a single view.
Imagine your fans vibing with your 3-minute masterpiece. On LYKSTAGE, that's not just a view; it’s 6 whole units of Watch Time. That's six times the love!
Ready to level up with LYKSTAGE and cash in on every second? Come on over; your content is worth every tick of the clock! 🕰️🎉
24. How can you redeem your reward balance?
Easy-peasy! Head over to the Home screen and tap on that 'reward' option on the left. Spot the 'Redeem Now' button? Click on it, and as long as you've got 100 LYK Coins or more, you're good to go!
25. What if I loop a video on repeat?
We see what you're doing there! 😉 But nope, watching the same video on repeat won’t earn you extra rewards. Variety is the spice of life!
26. What if I skip through videos?
Here’s the scoop: To earn rewards, you've got to watch for a straight 30 seconds. If you're watching a 3-minute video and you watch 25 seconds, then fast-forward and watch another 5, it doesn't count. That 30-second watch needs to be uninterrupted.
27. How much time should I spend on a video to earn?
Keep it simple: Stick around and watch a video for atleast straight 30 seconds without hitting that fast-forward or skip button. And boom, you're earning! 🎉📺
28. How long can I watch a 'Premium Video' after I buy it?
Once you buy a ‘Premium Video’, think of it like a month-long rental! You've got 30 days to hit play. And once you do, you've got a solid 48 hours to complete it.
29. Can I set my own password for a 'Password-Protected Video'?
So here's the deal: when you've got a “Password-Protected Video”, the password gets whipped up automatically by our system. You can hit the ‘Password Reset’ button to change it, but heads up! The new one will also be system-generated. Customizing the password isn't on the menu right now.

Alright, so ‘Premium Play’ is like our VIP section. Only the crème de la crème videos are here, and they come with a price tag. Once you purchase a Premium Video, it’s yours to watch for 30 days. But after that month? You'll need to repurchase to rewatch. Trust us; it’s worth every penny! 🎬🍿

42. How is the revenue from Premium Play divided between LYKSTAGE and the Creator?
Premium Play on LYKSTAGE allows creators to offer their content via a pay-per-view format. When viewers rent this premium content, the revenue is split between the creator and LYKSTAGE. Typically, creators receive 75% of the revenue, ensuring they earn a majority share. However, the exact split is at LYKSTAGE's discretion, based on the creator's follower traction and content engagement on the platform. Additionally, LYKSTAGE has the final say in approving which content can be listed under Premium Play. In essence, it's a flexible way for creators to monetize their content while ensuring viewers get value-added content.
43. What is the maximum price for Premium content?
While the standard pricing for premium content is capped at INR 50 for India and $1.99 for the U.S. and other international markets, LYKSTAGE offers pricing flexibility based on a creator's following and engagement levels.

45. What is a LYK coin?
LYK Coins are LYKSTAGE's unique currency awarded to both viewers and creators. They serve as the primary reward mechanism on LYKSTAGE, representing a user's earnings for their activities on the platform. Crucially, the value of LYK Coins aligns with local currencies in the countries where LYKSTAGE operates. For instance, in India, 5 LYK Coins are equivalent to 1 INR. As LYKSTAGE expands into new markets, the LYK Coin's value adjusts to the respective local currency, ensuring that users in that region are rewarded appropriately.
1 LYK Coin = INR 0.20 (Only for India)
1 LYK Coin = USD 0.02 (Rest of the world)
46. What is Watch Time on LYKSTAGE?
Watch time on LYKSTAGE is the continuous duration a viewer spends on content without fast forwarding. Every 30-second segment a viewer watches is defined as one watch time unit. Hence, for every uninterrupted 30 seconds of viewing, a creator accumulates one unit. When these units total up to 120, it represents 1 watch hour (or 60 minutes). In essence, creators are rewarded based on these accumulated watch time units, providing a more granular measure of audience engagement. Each watch time unit signifies 30 seconds of genuine viewer engagement with a video.
47. How is View and Watch Time different?
Ever been told 'Views' are the ultimate metric in content earnings? Typically, a 'View' is registered when content is watched for at least 30 seconds. So, 10,000 views? That's 10,000 people hooked for a minimum of 30 seconds. But here's where things fall short: If they watch for 31 seconds or a full hour, you're still credited for just that one view.
Enter LYKSTAGE's 'Watch Time' advantage. We shift the focus from mere 'Views' to the actual 'Watch Time'. Each 30-second span of your content watched is a separate unit. Longer engagement? More units earned. Consider this: A 3-minute view on LYKSTAGE isn't just one view but a whopping 6 units of Watch Time!
The beauty of LYKSTAGE? Even with fewer viewers, if they stay engaged longer, your earnings surge. Imagine 10,000 viewers for a 1-minute clip. On LYKSTAGE, this isn't just 10,000 views; it's an impressive 20,000 units of Watch Time. Now, that's maximizing your content's earning potential!
48. How does LYKSTAGE reward viewers for their time spent on the platform?
At LYKSTAGE, you earn one 'Watch Time Unit' for every 30 seconds you spend watching content. These units can be exchanged for LYK Coins, and the longer you watch, the more rewards you accumulate.
49. Do I need to be a registered user to earn rewards through Watch Time Units on LYKSTAGE?
Yes, you need to be a registered user to earn rewards. Fast-forwarding or rewinding won't count towards unit accumulation. Also, rewards are capped at 6 hours of watch time within a 24-hour period, so genuine engagement is key to earning.
50. How can creators start earning on LYKSTAGE?
Creators can start earning on LYKSTAGE by registering, setting up their profile, consistently uploading engaging content to attract viewers, and actively participating in the community. Earnings are derived from viewers' watch time units and any revenue generated through the Premium Play feature if opted for.
51. What factors affect a creator's potential earnings on LYKSTAGE?
The more engaging and popular the content, the higher the potential earnings for creators. The watch time units accumulated by viewers contribute to a creator's earnings, so creating content that keeps viewers engaged is essential.
