  1. I wanted to start this topic for members to Compare Pros and Cons for Streaming on Beam.pro Vs Streaming on Twitch.tv Feel free to post your ideas and I'll keep a comprehensive list
  2. Hello Everyone. I volunteered to write this article because after almost five years of streaming, and a little dabbling in YouTube, I feel that I have a pretty good story to tell on what I think people need to know before jumping in. I would like to preface this by saying this is purely my thoughts and opinions, not everyone will agree, and I am not claiming this is the only route to success. Hope you enjoy the read! Plan Your Channel First and foremost, after watching others get started and reflecting back on my experience, I feel that planning out your channel should be priority numero uno. Are you going to cater to a much wider audience by being a PG content creator? Or are you going to provide a niche corner where anything and everything goes? Will you replace swear words for their less harmful counterparts? Are you doing this strictly for the money or for interacting with people? These are just some of the questions you should ask yourself before getting started. There is nothing more detrimental to your channel than constantly reworking it to be happy. This is not to say you should never work on evolving your channel, but spending a year doing something and you not thinking that its working and going back to the drawing board is a monumental waste of time, talent, and effort. Which brings me to my next point… Do What Makes YOU Happy Everyone who starts being a content creator has a dream of being the next big thing. That is all fine and dandy, but it takes time and lots of hard work to get there. If you don’t do what makes you happy, things will start to get to you, no matter how small. It could be that people are constantly asking/telling you what to play next or what you need to do better. Ultimately, it is your channel and at the end of the day, if you are not happy and enjoying what you do, your viewers will be able to tell. Not only that, but it will take a toll on you in real life. How many stories have you heard about a big time content creator who was under such stress to put out high quality content that they were left broken and unable to even look at a computer? I know personally that I have seen it with acquaintances and friends many times. They lose the passion for what started as something they looked forward to doing every day (or multiple times a day). I have seen people lose their jobs, money, marriages, and children because the stress got to them. On a much more personal note, I have let small things get inside my brain that has caused me to stop streaming before for months on end. Even now, some days I question whether or not I should fire up my stream because something is bugging me. But at the end of the day, I LOVE playing video games and interacting with my viewers, who truly do make me feel better on bad days, and make me laugh until I have a headache. So it bears repeating….Do what you want to do and what makes you happy. Engage Your Community One mistake I see repeated far too often with new content creators is the lack of interaction with their viewers. This is more towards streamers, but is just as much helpful to YouTube/Video sharing sites. Dead air is a major killer for channels and I still fall victim to this. There are times when you are just so engrossed in a game, I get that, but don’t let thirty minutes go by without a single word. If someone pops in saying “Hi,” reply to them, make them feel welcomed, and most importantly, try to connect with them to show that you actually care about them taking the time to check you out. If you get raided, thank to raider, shout them out, get excited about it! It’s frustrating trying to talk to someone who doesn’t pay attention to chat at all or clearly is more interested in what their friend on their phone is saying than you as a viewer. I tend to watch/raid smaller streams to both help them out and find the gems, but a lot of people take it for granted. A raider is picking your channel for a reason, even if it is with one other person. That is at the very least one other viewer that has popped into your channel, and as we all know, more viewers means you are higher on the list, which turns into more people coming to check you out. Do it for me. Do it for yourself. Most importantly, do it for each and every person who comes into your channel, even if its your best friend who has been there since day one. Treat your viewers like family and you will be greatly rewarded. It Takes Time For every content creator who skyrockets to popularity, there are hundreds of those who are seemingly stuck in a loop of not having enough viewers, subscribers, or followers. These things take time, especially on the bigger sites like Twitch and YouTube. There are millions of other people trying to grab viewers’ attention and you might go months without much growth. This is normal. Let me repeat that. THIS IS NORMAL. Just because John Doe got 10,000 followers/subs in a month and is super successful, doesn’t diminish what you are doing one bit. Sure, you are going to reflect on your content and wonder what you are doing wrong, how you can change, how to be like them. But this might be the next most important thing (to me) in being a content creator: Do Not “Sell-Out” To Be Successful. What does that mean? It can be different for each person, but to me it means that you need to stay true to yourself, to what you set out to do. It refers back to the first two points in this article. Everyone’s path to success is different. Yes, there are going to be cookie cutter content creators and it will seem like you have to join that flock more often than not. However, there are lots of people out there who break the norm, who don’t need to do something crazy every two minutes to keep their viewers’ short attention span with them. Do you need a webcam? No. It might help viewers connect with you easier, but you don’t need one. Do you need to have a disco ball come down, music blaring, cowbells ringing, bad singing, and anything else that screams “PAY ATTENTION TO ME?” Absolutely not. Despite what lots of other people say, this is not needed and quite often, not wanted. Finding success, however you measure it, will take time but don’t panic if it doesn’t come as quickly as you hoped or wished. Stay the course, you will get there. Be Yourself I have alluded to this in the previous points, but it deserves its own section, mostly because there are far too many content creators out there that are “fake.” I have seen this up close and personal far too many times and it has sometimes broken my faith in others. Some sites have been operating for years and seem to have become stale. This has made some think that they have to try to act a certain way to get anywhere. This encompasses acting like other people or bringing something new/fresh to the table. Granted, this does work for some, so there is obviously something to be said for it, but personally, its abhorrent and makes me sick. Maybe its because I have been burnt by numerous people who I helped from day one climb the ladder to be successful, but showing people who you really are will get you something every content creator yearns for. Loyalty. Being yourself will also help stave off the Drama Llama that seems to creep up everywhere on the internet. Whether its between you and your viewers, you and other content creators, or just between two people you don’t know and you somehow get dragged into it. It can and will destroy some people and possibly your whole community. It sucks and its infuriating. You will have to make some concessions, like that annoying viewer who hasn’t done anything against the rules, but drives you and others batty to the point that you just want to ban them. But then there are the trolls and I feel they come in many different forms. You have the ones who hop from channel to channel testing to see how quickly they can get banned. Then there are the ones who will troll but not outright say anything ban worthy. And then there are the ones who play the long game, and might be the most destructive of them all. The ones who wiggle their way deep into your community and your trust circle, waiting for the right time to strike and destroy everything you worked hard to build. Develop a Thick Skin To have any semblance of success being a content creator, you have to learn to ignore some people. Whether it be their comments on videos or chat, their voices in discord/TeamSpeak, or their game play if you play games with them. Not everyone is going to align with your way of thinking/acting/playing. You can’t let these things get to you or worry over something a keyboard warrior taking refuge behind a random screen name says to/about you. Too many times I have seen people break down on stream or in private messages. At that point, they win, they got to you, got under your skin, even if they don’t actually see it happen. Personally, I don’t even bring attention to the comments unless others do. I trust my mods to delete the worst of the comments. If someone keeps it up or multiple people target me, I just agree with them and laugh it off. I have found that this shows them that their crap isn’t going to work here and they leave of their own accord. Comment sections and chat is like an aphrodisiac to these people and they flock to them in droves. I beg of you, do not let these get to you in any way. I understand there are those out there that can make your life a living hell, but from what I have seen, they target mostly those people who acknowledge them. Don’t Be Afraid of Change Lastly I would like address this topic, which might seem to contradict my previous statements. Sometimes change is inevitable, whether its drastic or subtle. Maybe your friends/community offer up some suggestions and you want to implement them. This is not a bad thing as long as its what you want to do as well. Perhaps you see a new platform for you to share your content on but you have put a lot of time into a different one. I went from streaming on Twitch for almost four years and the day I learned about Beam.pro, I switched immediately. It gave me what I wanted. I just recently re-branded my channel on there to include my wife who now streams her game play on the channel with me. This is the growing process of content creation. Just don’t let change get in the way of what you are wanting to do. Don’t go to drastic measures every time you feel growth has slowed or become stagnant. Your viewers will keep coming back because they know what to expect. If you do plan to make some changes, try to give your community as much notice as possible so they aren’t caught off guard and make assumptions. This also extends to those you might deem close to you in your community. Do you have a gaming group the has started to become non-existent? Maybe its time to find a new group or invite new people to fill in the gap left by others. Is a mod on your channel becoming a problem or doesn’t show up anymore? Talk to them about it and perhaps they need to be removed as a mod. You will not prevent everyone’s feelings from being hurt, but if you know in your heart that you did everything to make it the best situation possible, then there is nothing more you can do. Again, let your community know when stuff like this happens. Just don’t go into more detail than they need to know. That’s just inviting the Drama Llama. I have shared what I feel are the most important things you need to know getting started as a content creator. There are many many smaller things that I couldn’t cover or just couldn’t think of at this time. It is not an easy road, being successful in this business. Sweat, tears, and sometimes blood must be sacrificed to make a name for yourself, but if you enjoy it, if you love what you do and show it to your audience, then it is only a matter of time. Good luck to you all!

(Like we supported Hitbox and Azubu in the past) All Opinions are welcome!!

  10. So it's my 3rd day streaming on Beam. So far I'm having a great time with it and it's different from twitch. I have 8 followers from just watching one guy stream. What do you guys think of beam ?
  11. Part 35 of our Mass Effect adventure, starts out with a awesome speech by Captain Kirrahe! He emphasizes that we "hold the line" and do what needs to be done. I have to decide which one of my squadmates goes with Kirrahe, and then pick my squad and head out. We fight through waves of geth to get into the facility. Broadcasting the Mass Effect trilogy on Twitch and Beam!
  12. Hey guys, Luckyshots here I'm a streamer on beam and have been for about 4 months now. I'm growing at a decent rate but would love to meet new streamers and play some games together. I'm also trying to help people switch to the BEAM platform. Twitch is crowded and over saturated and for any streamer BEAM will feel like a breath of fresh air. I play lots of different genres of games but tend to play shooters more than anything, hit me up and let's game! Twitter @luckyshotsbeam beam http://beam.pro/Luckyshots
  13. When it comes to streaming, which plateform do you prefer and why? No bashing the ones you don't like, I want to hear positive please SO which one you prefer and why? what makes it that you like that one, that it is your favorite? Or do you multiplatform? And if so, which one and why?
  14. Hey guys I'm going to be streaming tonight at 7pm MST I'll be playing Gwent and helping new people to beam get setup on the site and answering questions about the platform! Come by and see what it's all about http://beam.pro/Luckyshotsallday
  15. After checking out Beam.pro for a while now. I think it's safe to say that I am making the switch. Beam's community is so much more friendlier than Twitch. I know right now it's great and once Microsoft pushes more Beam we will have more toxic viewers. But I want to enjoy it when I can. So please if you have Beam please would love some support on my switch help me out with a follow. If you are a streamer let me know I will follow right back. I want to things right here on Beam and be able to support other streamers. I met so many awesome ones. Also if you are just a viewer thank you for the follow. Also I have a discord for a community that is open to streamers to promote when they go live the link is discord.me/supernerds Thank you guys for being awesome here on CGN. This is a great website. Beam Link
  16. If you guys are looking for a sweet bot that you download similar to Ankh Bot Scorp Bot is right up there. They do Beam and Twitch so if you are a retream user this would be perfect for you! I am really enjoying the bot and wanted to share with you guys. Scorp Bot
  17. I've been with twitch for awhile now so I thought now's the time for a change of paste by going to beam.pro....Looked around the site and it looks cool. I haven't streamed anything yet, but I plan to during the weekends while doing twitch on weekdays. twitch can be a total pain sometimes, but I don't let it get to me. feel free to check it out...starting this saturday gonna start streaming on beam https://beam.pro/DCGamerX-2099
  18. So me and Ateleryx Did a coolab not to long ago. Was a amzing had a few laugh and got my ass handed to me oh so well. Im still looking for my Streamers and youtubers to collab with on both pc and xbox. Games for Xbox 1: BF1, Deadrising 4, Dragonball xeno 2 and a few other. Games for PC: BF1, Ark, For honor (14th), Rocket league and many more. Leave a comment if your interested or DM me and we'll get something sorted. Hope you have all had a great day thanks for reading and see you all around!
  19. What service do you guys like the most twitch or beam and why ?
  20. Hi everyone. You may remember that I was on Twitch until I moved to Beam. The main reasons behind was to get an amazing community to be behind the stream. As a fellow CGN member, all of you are welcome to become part of the stream community. You can always join in through:- Beam: https://beam.pro/batchgaming Discord: https://discord.me/batchgaming Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/batchgaming (Any mentions of my username appears up on the stream) Also, I have my own Bread Army stream team at Beam. Now, if you are a fellow Beam streamer yourself, I am open to new members of the team as long as the following requirements are met:- The streamer to be active a minimum 3 out of the 5 days of the week with a planned schedule. Have at least 50 followers. Always happy to receive raids from channels and send them to other streams, not just in the team. Is committed to help build a community in Beam and in the Bread Army stream team. Enjoys banter and having fun with other streamers and gamers who participate in your or other streams. If you are interested in joining my team, please PM me here. Thanks.
  21. I just started streaming on Beam. I feel like it's better than other streaming platforms. Viewers seem to enjoy it more and I like the fact I can stream 1080 without any issues. Does anyone have any input about Beam? Like what you like about it and what you don't like about it.

  24. I just heard about Beam and had a look at it. Visually it looks a lot nicer than twitch and I was planning on lurking there for a bit to see if it's worth switching to. I know it a very new site but does anyone have any experience streaming on there?
