Advice offered to clients during livestreaming sessions

Han Yi'en, a home space organizer based in Shanghai, spends 14 hours each week preparing for and hosting three livestreaming sessions related to her work.

Although she has offered training services since 2015, she said livestreaming work is far more demanding.

"Hosts can take a short break during offline courses by asking students to think for themselves and hold discussions. However, for online classes, far more energy is required to impart knowledge, and hosts must be able to adapt to different situations during classes," said Han, who started livestreaming in May last year.

"Some audiences just randomly switch to livestreaming, and if they don't find anything that interests them right away, they will not return," she said.

Livestreaming has helped professionals such as Han reach a broader audience. During the past year, more than 1 million people have watched her broadcasts.

The profession of home space organizer, which emerged in the United States and was developed further in Japan, was recognized by China's Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security in January 2021.

Practitioners said that in Shanghai, for example, the average fee charged by a team of three organizers is typically about 1,000 yuan ($144) per hour. Rates may vary in different regions.
