We recently had the chance to interview one of our partners and top performers, MinnaMumi. We asked her about her experience with Streamloots, as well as how her use of the platform has evolved since she first started with us. Check out the full interview!
How has Streamloots impacted your streams and the way you create and monetize your content?
When I first heard about Streamloots I couldn’t really understand the concept. I kept thinking it was like owning merch? But then I started looking at it like Pokémon cards (and other card games/collectibles), and it made SO much more sense! I believe I was one of the first streamers to use Streamloots in my country, and people were a little hesitant in the beginning until they found out how Streamloots worked! Once that happened, I found out that I could earn so much more through Streamloots than just Twitch – which made it a lot easier for me; since I stream full-time. Throughout the years using Streamloots I’ve come to learn that you have to update the cards, so that new stuff is available to keep it interesting for people, but also to keep the cards simple. If you have to do something CRAZY each stream, it takes A LOT of your energy, especially if you stream 5–7 days per week.
How has your use of Streamloots evolved since you first started with us? In terms of tweaking cards, collections, ways of interacting with you, etc.
I always knew that I wanted to create my own cards, and not use the ones that were available (at the time there weren’t many varieties like today). In the last couple of years, I’ve started creating new collections, which will only be used for a certain period of time, such as a Halloween collection or Christmas collection. When they are only there for a limited time, they are more special than normal packs, and I always try to include something that will make people just as excited as I am.
What are some things you’ve noticed that work and do not work with your community and the way your streams are set up?
“My viewers LOVE to see me in pain… So I learned the HARD way to use cooldown a lot! Because if I didn’t, I would never stop working out or keeping my eyes closed in a game, etc. I started playing with Voicemod last year, and that seems to REALLY be something that my community finds fun, so if you haven’t tried it already, I suggest you do! The clips are hilarious!” Clip 1 Clip 2
What tips would you give to a new Streamloots user?
Just start!! Streamloots have SO many packs that are already available! You can always create your own cards later on once you’ve gotten used to using Streamloots. Don’t be afraid to use cooldown and other things so that your community doesn’t overdo it every stream. Also, don’t be afraid to pause the whole collection if you’re not feeling it in that stream! I cannot see any reason not to use Streamloots! It is a great way for you to monetize your stream in a new and fun way. You set the rules, and you create the cards/packs, so everything is the way you want it to be. I would definitely recommend looking at other creators’ collections and see if you can get some inspiration from them – so many creative geniuses out there! And lastly; just remember to have fun with it!
