We want to update you on the latest changes to our sponsorship program, the reason behind our changes, and what you can expect as a result.
First of all, we are no longer accepting Twitch applications for the sponsorship program. Why? Simply because we feel we cannot offer enough perks outside of just being a regular Twitch streamer, this is largely because Twitch refuses to give us any extra features unless we are partnered ourselves, we attempted to get our hands on the Twitch teams feature beforehand but this was considered at first, then rejected simply because we weren't partnered, amongst other features such as tracking your progress through analytics so we can help you grow your channel, offering subscription and ad revenue to name a few.
We are fully working towards gaining extra features to bring to you guys for joining us on Twitch but until then it simply cannot be done.
On the flipside however, as announced earlier this year, we have a direct partnership with hitbox that allows us to extend hitbox partnerships on our behalf. Similar to YouTube Multi-Channel Networks, you can get partnered on hitbox under us and it'll be just like a normal network, although keep in mind that being an MCN is not our primary goal, we are simply working to bring opportunities to you guys.
"Why Hitbox over Twitch when twitch is more popular?"
A: While Twitch is more popular, it is also a lot more competitive, and we feel that the larger channels largely overshadow up and coming channels, it is sort of like entering a market that is already filled. Hitbox on the other hand is still relatively new (when you compare it to twitch) and is growing rapidly. With the market still fairly balanced on hitbox it is a great time to join and get your channel noticed. Not to mention the super fast delay between you and your viewers that hitbox is known to beat all other streaming sites at.
With that being said we've reformed our sponsorship program to display all changes made. The perks list has been updated with perks from us as well as hitbox partnership perks, so head over there and check them out!
On another note, our affiliate program is still accepting Twitch applications as this has not changed, so feel free to apply for that if you still want to get involved but don't want to make the switch.
Thanks for reading and we look forward to receiving applications!
