The Twitch streamers who spend years broadcasting to no one

I am sure the same can be said for YouTube and Facebook and Instagram too. Though if you have a network on Instagram and Facebook already and you stream from your profile it is often easier to find your audience.

This is an interesting read and I don't mind admitting that I've streamed live and hosted webinars when no one attended live - but it is all good practice and you can hone your skills plus create content you can repurpose or make your live content available for replay!

The article goes on to say:

"With the push of a button on your game console or phone, you can share whatever you’re doing at that exact moment with friends and strangers alike. The rise of popular (and profitable) influencers on platforms like YouTube and Twitch has also made the idea of being an online influencer aspirational. Some parents note that their children pretend to unbox toys to a nonexistent audience, and teachers report that their students often say they want to pursue YouTubing as a career."

"Starting a career on platforms like Twitch often means spending some time broadcasting to absolutely no one. Discoverability is an issue."

Have you ever live streamed when no one else joined you? What did you do?

Showdown Live - create and play live streaming trivia games on your mobile - launching 31 July 2018

Note when I created this gif it was initially due to be available on 24 July 2018.

Now in private beta on iOS and Android.

You earn points based on how fast you answer a question correctly, not just that you got it right

Instead of winning a cash prize, Showdown pays out coins for various actions inside the app which can be redeemed for $25 gift cards at popular stores. This gives users a better chance to walk away with a prize even if they don't win all the games they play.

I was guessing this is going to be initially for the US market as they mention Bestbuy and Walmart alongside Amazon and Starbucks as places you will be able to redeem your vouchers. However the website says "Currently Available in the United States, Canada and Australia".

Warfare Plugins 4th of July sale - 30% off all purchases through to 5 July

Learn about the plugin here

I'm fortunate to be an early adopter of Social Warfare the social sharing plugin for WordPress so I got an incredible deal at the time.

I know it is a little more expensive than other plugins but it means you have features such as having a different image for sharing to social sites (such as being able to add your brand identity to it) versus what will show on your blog post on your site. This is something that major publishers do all the time.

If you have been putting off purchasing Social Warfare for your site or want to add an additional licence they have a sale on for the 4th of July which gives 30% off any purchase.

Find the details of the plugin here

Note: If you purchase through this link I will get a small referral fee for having shared about the plugin - but you can be assured this is a tool I use and have done so since the early days of it being launched.
