If you want to make partner on Facebook, I’ve got a video here you are going to love watching because I asked six partners their best advice for level up gaming creators on Facebook hoping to make partner.
Facebook Gaming Partners Give Advice for Gamers On How to Make Partner
If you will enjoy reading and contributing to the discussion for this post, will you please join us on the YouTube video above and leave a comment there because I read and respond to most comments on YouTube?
If you find anything helpful in this video or funny, will you please leave a like because you will feel great helping other people find it?
In this video, I give you all their responses back to back to back. Let me introduce each partner.
First, this is The King Slayer.
The King Slayer is the partner I’ve watched the most. He has provided a lot of help in the level up gaming creator group. What I love about The King Slayer, he started on Facebook from nothing, built his audience straight up from zero and within three or four months made partner. It is the fastest I’ve seen it so far.
His advice begins this video. He is live streaming right now. There are 783 people watching, and 78,000 followers.
Next up in the video is StoneMountain64.
One of the old original gamers on Facebook. He is streaming right now. He has 3.1K viewers. He is playing “PUBG.” He is the next partner featured who gives his advice on what you want to do to be partner.
After that, it’s The PoolShark.
The PoolShark is playing “Fortnite” right now. He is a partner on Facebook. He has 1.7 thousand people watching.
Next up is Emortal Gaming.
As far as I can see he is one of the newer partners on Facebook. He gives some excellent advice and shows, as an example, what to do to become a partner.
One of the key things he mentions, he said that when five or six months ago he started streaming, he wasn’t getting anything like the views he is getting today. He is not live right now, but I imagine he will be live again soon.
We have got Era of The Geeks.
He gives the second last spill in this video responding to “What’s the best advice for making partner?”
What’s helpful for him is that he is based in Malaysia. I think all of these other creators I just showed you are USA based. Era of The Geeks gives us an Asian based viewpoint on the Facebook Partner Program, which differs significantly from what I’ve seen on the US ones.
He gives us the last answer from “What’s the best advice for being a gaming partner on Facebook?”
After the gaming partners give their advice, I will provide my tips as well.
I did this in a simple format. I started recording. I dropped a star donation with a simple question: “What’s your best advice for gamers trying to make partner?”
Here we go.
6 Facebook Gaming Partners Give Advice for Gamers On How to Make Partner
This is the six responses in order from The King Slayer, StoneMountain64, The PoolShark, Emortal Gaming, Era of The Geeks, and then Darkness429.
Alright, I just dropped a donation on The King Slayer here asking his best advice for gamers hoping to make partner on live stream. Here we go, we will watch the star pop up and see what he has to say.
The King Slayer:
Jerry Banfield. What’s up, Jerry? Jerry with the 2,500. I appreciate the stars. He says, “Your best advice for streamers hoping to make partner on Facebook gaming?”
Man. The advice I give people is different than what the other partners tell you. But I’ll still tell you. Let me kill this guy real quick Jerry. I want to make sure I give you a good response.
Best advice for people that are in the level up program trying to become a full-time partner streamer.
Number one, I would get familiar with Facebook’s Terms of Service, kind of like what they are looking for in a streamer.
Number two, my biggest thing is I always tell people they got to be one of three things. They’ve got to be very, very, very, very good at the game and the problem with that is games are going to change.
“Fortnite” is not always going to be the king, it’s going to switch to another game.
So one, you got to be very, very, very good at the game.
Two, you got to be entertaining.
You can get away with being okay at the game and entertaining, but I would say you can’t get away with being not entertaining and decent at the game.
That’s what you see. You see a lot of people man that they’re just like everyone else. Everyone says, “be your own person.” I’m all for that. I get it in like fairy tales and all that other BS.
The reality of it is you’re going to try to make it big quick, right?
Because the market is growing. Esports is taking off like this, okay. And there are all these people that are coming in at like this, but everyone’s the same, right?
They put on their hat, they do the same thing everyone else does, “Follow me on Pinterest. Follow me on Instagram. Follow me on Twitter. Yada. Yada. Yada. Yada.”
The reality of it is, you’ve got to be extremely good, which is very hard because there are so many people. So being very good at the game for me was out.
Number two, be very entertaining. That is where I think a lot of people are lacking. It is because streaming is more of the entertainment business than it is playing video games business, and I think a lot of people don’t understand that. That’s why you see a lot of people that can’t make partner, that are struggling to get views on Twitch.
What else? What else? What else?
I mean the persona thing, I would say like you got to be yourself, but you can’t force a persona. Like if The King Slayer stuff didn’t come naturally and I was up here like, “bend the knee,” people would obviously be able to see right through that.
So, I’m really big on being unique obviously. That’s what’s worked for me. A lot of other people say, “Oh, be yourself. Be yourself. Be yourself.”
It works for some people, but I think we’re in a totally different point in the streaming game where you got to be different, man. You got to bring something to the table that no one else does and you got to be damn good at it.
That would be the best advice that I can get.
Bradley with the 500 stars.
“Here is 500. Play the game.”
Hey Bradley, enjoy the band.
Jerry Banfield donated 2,500. I am obviously going to take the time to answer his questions.
Oh. Another thing too, Jerry. Don’t take other people’s garbage. There are tons of people out there man…
Oh, you know what?
I’d also say make sure you focus on building a solid community. People that have your back. Like the community that we’ve been able to build dude is awesome.
The people of the kingdom are amazing. I don’t even have to rush trolls anymore. The kingdom does it for me.
Oh, that is great. That was so good. Thank you to The King Slayer for the outstanding answer. This is awesome.
Jerry with the 2,500 stars, ladies and gentlemen: “Best advice for streamers hoping to make partner on Facebook?”
Thank you for the support first of all, man.
If you are trying to make partner, I think the biggest benefit that a partner has right now, is the supporter feature. I think maybe you can do ads with partner as well, but I’d say it’s not like if you became a partner, you would get more attention or viewers or things from that.
So, I would a hundred percent say keep focusing more on the content and what you are doing, growing your audience and making your content better to grow that, then worrying about those things.
It’s just so much more important, the actual content and what you are doing. The other things will come, but I wouldn’t say that’s the priority. I don’t know if there are other things, like I think you should get 1080p 60 fps streaming and all the basic things you need in like level up on Facebook.
So, yeah, I would say keep pushing that as much as possible because it’s so few people that even have like partner status on Facebook right now, that it’s still very early and like they are going to be looking at people who have, you know, the audience.
It’s about the audience. It’s about the content. If your content is good enough, the audience is there, that’s who they are going to be looking for to do it. I assume at least.
Alright, guys. Password is officer. O-F-F-I-C-E-R.
Hope that helps man.
Thank you for the support, Jerry.
“Best advice for streamers hoping to make partner on Facebook?”
Honestly, don’t focus on it. Let it happen.
Focusing on it is probably the worst thing you can do.
Yeah, if you start focusing on trying to hit numbers and stuff, you’ll put out less quality content I guess would be the proper word. Just focus on what you have and with time everything else will come, and if it’s not meant to be, it’s not meant to be.
Take your viewer count off. If you’re looking at the viewer count, you’re doing it wrong. I turned mine off too.
So, like a lot of people will play games, like what I did. This is what I did. I built my viewers base around Fortnite.
Fortnite grew my channel and now I’m introducing other games, and that’ll hopefully allow people to stick around as opposed to sticking around for the game, stick around for me.
The stream itself. I know a lot of people are like, “Oh, well I only like Fortnite.”
I mean, that’s going to be inevitable. I’m going to lose people. You can’t focus on that. I’m okay with losing people. That’s not a big deal to me. It may be to others, but it’s not to me.
I want to focus on having fun and staying true to who I am.
Yeah, anyway, to continue my story, I play games that I have fun with. I stopped having fun with Destiny, so I uninstalled it.
I know there’s a lot of people that still like Destiny. I had a little falling-out with Destiny, so I just don’t play it anymore. I don’t know, it is just one of those things.
It is like, I built my community around one game. It sucks that I had to do it around Fortnite. I mean, a lot of people did that and I feel kind of cheap doing that, but at the same time, you all wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for Fortnite, so it’s just continuing from there.
And wear Crocs. If you wear Crocs your stream will grow.
Yo, shout-out to Jerry Banfield for sending 2,500 stars.
Jerry says, “Best advice for gamers hoping to make partner on Facebook?”
The best advice for them that are hoping to make partner on Facebook is to just be true to who you are. I made partner on Facebook not by like doing crazy things or whatever, but by just having great content, and then you know, letting people come and find out about it.
I’ve been streaming for six months or whatever, but my streams never got to anything close to the type of views they get to now, four or five months ago.
So, it’s a grind and you just got to stay true. Don’t let viewers determine your content. If you know you’re bringing out good content, keep bringing out good content.
Sometimes people just don’t have the viewership or whatever, but just keep bringing it out. The viewers will eventually grow. That’s how it worked for me.
Shout-out to Jerry Banfield for sending another 2,500 stars and he says, “Thanks for answering. Can you define good content? At least what it means for you?”
Good content — Okay. Hold on.
Good content means that even while we’re talking about this, I’m still going to find a way to drop down a blast on this dude’s head.
Blast. Go. Leave my game.
Alright. That is good content, Jerry.
This dude didn’t even have a shotgun.
But good content to me would be like just genuine, intellectual.
Good content is just you’re not stealing any moves from anybody else or doing anything like that, but just genuinely streaming because that’s just what you want to be doing as if you were hanging out with your friends right there next to you, you know.
I think that’s what provides a great environment for people to come into and feel comfortable because it feels no different than if they were sitting right next to me, and I was just playing the video game.
So, I think good content would just be true.
Era of The Geeks:
Oh, wow. Jerry, thanks for the 2,500 stars. Damn, Jerry. Thanks a lot, man.
Take the motorbike!
Alright, hold on Jerry. If you hang on tight…
“Best advice for gamers hoping to be partner on Facebook?”
Where are you from, Jerry?
So, I’m from Malaysia.
Well, I didn’t apply, but kind of found an agent I guess, and they recruited us.
Yes, very nice. Thank you, Jerry.
So, we had an agent over here, and they recruited us. I don’t think there’s any way to apply, it is not like Twitch where you can apply.
Technically you can still apply. At least there are guidelines on how you can achieve partnership on Twitch, but Facebook you don’t have any yet.
So, I guess consistency in viewership on your stream and the page likes.
I don’t know if in the States they use agents or directly from Facebook, so you get recruited I guess. You can’t actually apply for it.
Jerry, thanks for the 2,500 stars man.
It’s very kind.
“Best advice for gamers hoping to make partnership on Facebook?”
I mean, just keep being consistent and building an audience.
I would say, just keep streaming and you know, be consistent with your streams, keep building up that community.
Thank you very much for watching our video here with six partners responding to my question, “What’s your best advice for being a partner?”
Here is where I will give you a couple of quick tips based on what they said and putting it all together.
First, consistency in more detail.
I’ve heard several mention consistency. Well, what is consistency?
Consistency from what I’ve seen means playing the same game at the same time of day. That is a clear definition of consistency and quality content means sharing what’s in your heart.
I made this video because I wanted it for myself. I figured if it feels helpful for me, it probably would be helpful for you. If you just want to do it for yourself because you are really excited about it that’s probably quality content.
If you are thinking you will get the most viewers and donations, and it will give you the best chance to be a partner, that might not be quality content if it’s not what you want to do.
Quality content is creating because you love it rather than being a means to an end.
A means to an end is you are hoping to make money, get a following, etcetera.
For quality content, to me, it’s very important to be clear on your why.
Why are you playing video games on Facebook or wherever?
Why are you doing whatever you are doing?
I’m doing this video because this is what’s in my heart. This is what I’m working on right now. This has been a challenge for me and this is what I needed help with and I am imagining what I need help with is what other people need help with as well.
I’m doing gaming because I love the opportunity to carry a message of love, hope, faith, charity and connection in gaming.
That’s why I do my gaming.
That’s why I show up on Facebook almost every day and play video games.
When you are clear on your why, it’s easy to make quality content and be consistent about it. If you have got a why that’s dependent on Facebook giving you partner or if you have got a why dependent on making money, getting viewers or being famous, that why will not hold when things get difficult.
Everywhere in life, there are ups and downs.
On Facebook, there are huge ups and downs in the viewers and you can see this. I’ve seen Kingslayer have as many as six thousand people watching his stream at once, and today he has got 1k.
Now, you might think, “Well, that’s great. He’s got 1,000 people watching him.”
But when you have had six!
He might even have hit 10,000 at some point that I didn’t see. When you get a lot lower than you have had, it’s all relative.
I’m grateful I’ve had over a thousand five hundred people watching me at once and it makes a hundred viewers not look like a lot. When I just started, a hundred viewers looked like a ton.
Thus, your why is what keeps you making quality content and keeps you consistent.
Your why, also then, you can deliver on a daily basis. It doesn’t matter if there is one person watching or a hundred thousand people watching.
I am just as capable of carrying a message of love, hope, and faith to one person and that can make a huge difference in one person’s life and that’s enough.
Having a clear focus on the why makes quality content and consistency natural because then we show up, when we are clear on our why, we just keep showing up and we naturally follow our heart.
Thus, I’m willing to change games as needed or play the same game to deliver underneath my why. I’m willing to be consistent at the time of day or switch times a day. The exercise is to just be enough, have enough and enjoy what you do.
Like The PoolShark said about just taking off the views, if you are just doing it for the views, you won’t get through either the beginning or whenever it gets difficult and goes downhill.
If you are doing it because you have got a why that really carries through regardless of how many people are watching or how many donations you are getting, or whether you are partner or not, you will get to wherever you need to go, whether it’s being a partner with Facebook or whether it’s just being supported by donations and supporters.
However it happens, isn’t the bottom line to make enough money doing what you love?
I’m grateful for years I’ve been making enough money doing what I love online, and yet my mind spins up these fancy scenarios that often trick me. If you get enough money to do what you love every day there is no higher level than that.
That’s as good as it gets right there, when you are giving back and helping other people every day.
So, I’m grateful for the inspiration to make this video because I’m imagining how helpful it is for you. I’m imagining that you are seeing this and it’s making a big difference.
One thing I see that helps with quality content and it helps with consistency is to imagine how your audience will receive what you are creating. Imagine someone with their phone out like this watching your stream.
Imagine their experience.
How are they reacting? How are they feeling when you are streaming live? When you are saying things, how are they reacting?
Because there is not a lot of positive reinforcement. You may be doing a whole lot of good and not even know it. You might have one viewer who loves watching your streams all the time and who brings their friends in and it might not look like much, but that one viewer may love what you are saying, but might not even chat that much.
When you picture how people are reacting…
I picture people laughing. I picture people crying and smiling. I picture very clearly how you are watching this video.
You are just all of a sudden like, “Man, this is really starting to make sense now. Thank you for making some of these clear.”
I imagine that because it helps me do what I want, it helps me make things very clearly like this.
So, I appreciate you watching this.
I imagine this is really helpful for you if you have been thinking about making Facebook partner, if you have been trying to play video games online and earn money.
I hope all these partner suggestions plus what I’ve done to wrap it all up and try to give you some very clear calls to action will help.
Your calls to action are focus on your why.
Why are you streaming video games online?
What value are you offering to the viewer?
If you can, stream the same game at the same time that you love playing every day if possible. If not, like for me, just do whatever you want to. Don’t worry about how many people are watching. I stream whenever I can. I stream whatever game I’m in the mood for that day.
Go for it. Do it because you love it and when you do it because you love it, you will be consistent, you will make quality content and you will feel great.
Invite your friends and family to watch.
If you want to know how the views snowball, the best I can see, is when one person has been watching for a while, Facebook drops that in the newsfeed of their friends, and when their friends come in and watch for a while, it can go viral just like that, just on people watching.
So, you have got to do something you love and keep doing it over and over, and be prepared for the day you go viral. Be prepared for all the sudden, your stream gets out of nowhere.
When I started back to streaming on Facebook in August, I didn’t get that many views. I did a few of these zombie gaming streams in a row, and all of a sudden people were just constantly sharing my stream the whole time. It was crazy because the week before that, there was hardly anyone watching.
Be prepared. Keep doing a good job. Do what you love, and then as Pool Shark said, “You don’t need to worry about being a partner.”
Trust that the universe will support you and what you want to do. However, if you have got an open mind to how it can happen, you might not need to be a Facebook partner to do game streaming full time.
There might be other ways that it will work out for you.
Or, if it’s meant to be and you really want it, I imagine it will happen. You just might need to wait a while longer than you think you should.
I am imagining being a Facebook partner someday. I’ve been a very valuable Facebook partner for a long time. I’ve done tutorials on Facebook ads. As you can see, I’ve practiced them on myself. I’ve put thousands of videos on Facebook, hundreds of live streams.
I am a Facebook partner now.
Just because it’s not official on my page right this moment as I’m filming this, doesn’t mean it’s not going to happen in the future.
I can imagine whatever I want to. I imagine it happening in the future, and therefore, I just keep showing up, doing a good job, and I imagine it will happen whenever it’s ready, whenever it’s time.
Thank you very much for watching this.
I love you.
You are awesome and I will see you again I imagine, in another video.
Because you feel like, “Oh, my God. This was so good. I’m going to follow this guy and I’m never going to miss any of his live streams again.”
