If you’ve been using Streamloots as a streamer or a viewer, you know that on special occasions, you might find floating around our platform, social media channels, Discord, or this blog a few discount codes through which viewers can purchase packs for a lower price than usual.
The first point that’s important to bring up is to make it 100% clear: Streamloots-issued discount codes will never impact the streamers’ revenue when viewers use these codes. We always cover the difference so it can be truly impactful for the creators and their audience, as a thank-you for always being supportive.
So when a discount code is made available, if you’re a streamer, you’ll want to make it known to viewers so that they have knowledge of it and can redeem it upon purchase. There are several ways to do it: add a chatbot command, show it directly on stream, tweet the discount code, etc. Those are the usual traditional ways to ensure your community sees the code.
Thanks to Streamloots Partner TheGCU, we have a really clever new way to show you where you can promote codes to your audience. And all it requires is having a Discord channel for your community.
Using the Create an Event feature on Discord lets you set up an interactive schedule for your community, where users can turn on notifications for specific streams. In it, you’ll be able to set the times where you’re live, and it can be the perfect way to advertise discount codes by inserting them into the title of the event, since it shows a bright green “Happening Now” clickable button, together with a complete description and the link to take them directly to the site to make a purchase.
These are the steps to follow:
- Create a event on your Discord server for when you’re live or duration of the code.
- Fill details with the event by inserting Discount code in title or description.
- Insert your Streamloots profile page in the Location of Event, so viewers can go directly there to make use of the Discount code.
