Well helloo everyone! Some of you might have noticed that the website has changed quite a lot. I thought i could share some insights for what is new and what was the idea of the whole rebranding project 🙂
Why rebranding not just new website?
It has been a blast to gather guides these past 3 years!
Here is some cool stats Nikitheliger brand had:
Back in the days when PokemonGo came and IRL streaming was still as it's baby stage PokemonGO article brought in 3990 people in daily. That was grazy time! Of source the server crashed after that load 😀 It is actually pretty interesting how many guide creators there has been and the videos have been changed quite a lot while new ones came.
Where are we now:
Daily visitors: 850-1100
But why the brand and name change?
Actually i want to start posting more with others also. Nikitheliger brand had the “Only one person” feeling that i want to grow off. Under streamersguides i can better collaborate with other streamers and tutorial creators that like to do quest posting etc. If you are interested about collaborating and creating / updating content get in touch and let's work something out!
I want to make sure that this blog stays the most evergreen streaming guide collection that is has been for couple years. When we have more awesome folks updating the articles and creating new articles the better it will be for new upcoming streamers 🙂
So what is new?
2 way integration with likes, dislikes and reporting
I think the most useful feature of the new website is the ability to like and dislike straight from the video. New player get's views, likes and dislikes straight up from YouTube and the integration is two ways. You can also use the report function to let me know about video that is outdated. There is quite many! So this is an awesome feature 😀
Lightbox and watch later
If you click on any of the arrows where video shows up you see a much larger lightbox appear that also offers related videos. It looks like you are in the movies. It's pretty sweet!
Articles have been updated and some secret goodies
A huuuge bunch of oldie goldie articles have been updated to offer better tips for your streaming needs. I'll have a goal for this year to post a new guide or edit an oldie goldie twice a week.
Make sure to follow on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to get in touch. I'll also keep posting special guides that are really useful in social media that may or may not ever make it to the blog itself.
Advertisement options are now live!
Advertisements have been a huge pain in the butt for a long time. In 3 years on NikiTheLiger blog it made income of 75$. That doesn't even cover the webhosting costs 😀
I was running AdSense on the blog and since everyone uses AdBlocks they weren't seen by 99% of the people who visited, read and watched the guides. I honestly can't blame anyone of that AdSense adverts were like really, really bad 😀
Another thing was integrity to keep as a resource collector
Most of the gathered up guides are from other streamers and youtubers. They also have their own affiliate links in the videos where you can click and get equipment's and support them financially to create even more guides. I do not feel that it is right to put my own affiliate links in these videos descriptions either like some collectors do. So i thought of a another way that could actually help and be useful for streamers!
Reach out, Get new followers, Visitors or Customers – Some AD examples and use cases
Ads for Streamers
You know that discoverability in Twitch is a huge problem? You stream hours and hours. Post on Social Media and hope that some folks will actually jump into your stream and start chatting. You may even use money to buy Facebook, Instagram or Twitter ads. But do they actually get you more viewers? That's where i can help you!
As the blog readers are generally new streamers or upcoming streamers they are looking into streaming related things. What is the absolute best way to get started? Talk about streaming with another person of source 🙂 If you want chatters for your stream this could be your thing!
