Advertising on Twitch: setup and management
advertising on Twitch can seem like a complicated undertaking. Especially if you are new to the platform. It is the rest of a new social network, born for gamers, but today it has become one of the most popular channels ever, especially for making live videos. Yet it is possible to earn on Twitch, above all thanks to the advertising that is developed here in different ways: merchandising, announcements and sponsorships. So let’s see how to set up and manage advertising on Twitch by analyzing the different forms of income available.
The two main ways of advertising on Twitch
Working with Twitch means making money from what you post and from the content you put online. Make the most of your time and become a successful streamer. But let’s see how the Twitch ADS world works.
- Classic advertising on Twitch is a profitable ad for partners. Management is easy, just create an ad that is automatically shown to those who are following the video when the page loads.
- If you want to advertise specific products on Twitch, what is right for you is the Amazon Associates program that allows you to earn by “tagging” specific products to your video.
The classic advertisements to make ads on Twitch are still the simplest and most immediate way to show your product and or your reality and acquire new leads.
How to manage and set up ad breaks on your channel
To integrate advertising on your channel the technical procedures are very simple and the wizard interface will take you “by the hand” in the creation of your ads. Note that there are also tools like Nightbot that will help you both in creating and running ads on a regular basis.
But what really matters to monetize is knowing how to handle Twitch Ads the right way. For example, many streamers have noticed that if you notify the community that an advertising break is coming, they are much more likely to stay and watch the video. Another important tip is to not load the ad at the beginning or at the end of the stream because the views will be very low. Someone may not have connected, while others will disconnect before the end. A good strategy is to implement ads as a benefit only for subscribers . By doing this you will get new members of the community and at the same time more people who will see the advertisement.
Success and profit by working with Twitch
The right compromise, therefore, to advertise on Twitch seems to be to insert 1 minute of ads every hour, thus not tiring your followers and getting them used to interruptions. Better to avoid long advertising sessions, the risk is that community members leave. Rather, the advice is to make them even shorter, that is 30 seconds, especially at the beginning.
