BIGO LIVE has created an ecosystem of agencies which employs scouts and identifies ‘talents’ or broadcasters. Launched two years ago, BIGO LIVE has around 300 agencies working for it in India and close to 12,000 official broadcasters. These agencies look for potential hosts in Tier-1 & Tier-2 towns and beyond and train them on multiple aspects of broadcasting. Bigo designs training modules which the agencies pass on to the hosts. This involves lighting techniques, camera angles, and advice on how to divide time between fans. For a person who is looking for both money and fame, BIGO LIVE is the apt platform. Aspiring models and actors are switching over to BIGO LIVE from other platforms such as Instagram and YouTube owing to the better payout structure. “Money is the biggest motivator for someone to perform on Bigo,” says Abhishek, who runs a talent agency for BIGO LIVE and gave up his full-time job at Bank of America.
