Another PAX has come and gone. We like to think that every time we attend a conference, we do it just a little bit better, and this time was no exception.

With PAXSouth coming to a close to truly kick off the new year, I've had some time to think about the past twelve months here at GameWisp. I wanted to take the time to share some of those thoughts about our phenomenal 2015, and what awesomeness lies ahead for 2016.

(The following piece was originally published January 29, 2015, following the first ever PAX South. To celebrate our return to the Lone Star State this weekend, we thought we'd take a look at just how much last year's event changed how we view content creators and the communities around them. Enjoy, and we can't wait to do it all again in a few days!)

Probably the hardest part of any subscription campaign is deciding what incentives to offer, but it doesn't have to be such a crap shoot...

Not all fans are created equal. That’s not to say they’re not all awesome, each as important as the next, but how important you are to them is something that varies, from the most diehard of diehards to the most casual of casuals. The same could be said of subscribers.

So, you’ve got your sub button. Using Gamewisp, you’ve set up awesome tiers with cool rewards and gone directly to your fans, shouting from the mountain-tops of Twitter so that all in the land will hear… but you still don’t have the number of subscribers you’d hoped for. In the world of content creation, with the hours upon hours of work and focus, it’s easy to get discouraged when things don’t go as planned. It’s only natural to be disappointed, but don’t call it quits just yet! Even then, there are multiple reasons to keep that sub button going.

Streaming is a tough occupation. Only a few streamers reach the upper echelons, with audiences in the millions and income to match. But just because the chances of reaching those hallowed halls are slim doesn’t mean you can’t have a solid, sustainable career as a streamer. It takes hard work, a thick skin, and, above all, a good grasp on the economics of streaming.
