For our front page feature we wanted to show the pride our stream, a strong established community and a channel that heavily focuses on viewer engagements. Before our front page feature we experimented with games that focus on chatbox engagement. On front page we played MarblesOnStream, where viewers type !play to join the stream without downloading or installing a program and on 24th February we hosted a Minecraft building event on our community servers.
From 13th January to 2nd March we gained 2,835 followers and received 529,015 live views streaming over 282hrs. Compared to last year, this is a gain of 335% of follows. We also used the front page time to strengthen our relationship with hardware brands and charity organisations we’ve previously worked with. Over the 8 weeks we reached out to 10 brands and successfully completed front page features of building a PC, raising money for charity and celebrating our 5 years streaming anniversary.
Thank you so much for helping us increase our revenue with a improved Twitch contract and new exposure through front page. We really appreciate all the assistance you’re providing us. We really believe we can be a positive driving force on bringing more brands, Irish viewers and revenue to Twitch.
