Here’s what your facebook.com/gaming/streamer will look like once you have gotten into the program and you are able to then start streaming as a level-up video game creator.
This interface is likely to keep changing over time, but here are the basic parts of it.
First, these are the eligible pages you have got on the upper left and if you have more than one page you can select it.
I highly recommend to focus on one page with just your name. If you make some personality or some mascot name or whatever, you may get tired of doing that, and you want to be able to do this over a long period of time.
For example, if you make some specific game page name, and then you stop playing that game, which you might not be able to imagine you would stop playing that game now, but in a year you get sick of that game and stop playing it, then you might need to make a whole new page and it might be hard to keep your following.
Make a page with just your name because you can keep that forever. All the different games you stream no matter what you do you can keep that same page.
On the lower left, we move into the “Alerts” here. The alerts show you three or four different things depending on if you are a partner or not.
You have got “Star Alerts.”
This means when someone pays Facebook to buy stars, and then Facebook agrees to then give you those stars, so your donations in stars, these come up on “Star Alerts.”
Then you have got “Show Supporter Alerts.”
That’s when you are a partner and someone subscribes monthly to get additional benefits. That’s where you get the real money. If you want to make $100 a day every day on Facebook becoming a partner or whenever Facebook releases supporters to everyone that’s in level-up, the supporter, those are where you, if it’s like Twitch, make your real money.
“Share Alerts” and “Clip Alerts” are absolutely critical also. You want these, with the star alerts and the supporter alerts, to pop up in real time on your stream as soon as they happen because it’s a good way of getting other people to see as possible and getting other people to want to participate.
When you see someone share on stream and it pops up as a little alert, then that often triggers you off as the viewer to want to share also, and then you get a share train going where sometimes a hundred people on my streams have shared straight in a row all at once.
So these alerts are where they pop up and it’s very important to read all these out. Every time someone shares, thank them for sharing, try to say their name, comment, ask, talk, and then you can see the stars come in. Always go crazy whenever someone drops those shares on you.
So you got your alerts over here.
Now you have got the “Streamer Stats” and the “Star Stats” over on this side.
I’m not allowed to show you the “Star Stats,” so I’m hiding both of these, but what you get to see is how many stars you have gotten in the last stream, the last month, and all time, and then on the “Streamer Stats” you can see how many comments, likes, shares and the stars you have got on the last stream.
Now, one of the most critical parts of this dashboard is the “Free Stars” tier. If you want to be able to make $100 a day, you need to be streaming to maximize these stars drops for free.
What you get on these, these are free stars. This means viewers can simply watch and Facebook will give viewer stars to drop on you for free. That is the gold standard, that’s exactly what you want because this gets the star train going often where someone sees stars drop in and someone else doesn’t even realize they are for free or wants to drop more, and then will pay to drop even more stars on you.
This is also where you reality check because for a hundred dollars a day you need to at a minimum be doing the “Silver Tier,” and then ideally get into that “Gold Tier,” so you can get the absolute most star drops on your stream.
I’m currently in the “Silver Tier,” which even that can be challenging for me with my own business full time online, with a wife, two children at home, with going to my Alcoholics Anonymous meetings every day for an hour or two, and then getting a good night’s sleep every night, being there for my family.
In order for me to do “Gold Tier,” this means I don’t do almost anything else at all in my business, that means no time to film courses, blog posts and pretty much nothing else except streaming on Facebook.
Right now before “Black Ops 4” comes out I’ve dropped down to the “Silver Tier” before it comes out because I want to have time to film these video courses and get this information out there before “Black Ops 4” comes out, and then I’m streaming a whole bunch and up on “Gold Tier.”
If you want to make partner with Facebook and get this subscriber unlocked, Facebook seems to be saying with this silver and gold tier that this is how you show them this is a priority: “If you stream a lot of hours we will make you a partner.”
I would imagine Facebook generally looks at partners based on being in a silver or gold tier. If you can’t at least do a silver tier, you probably don’t have a good shot at making $100 a day.
This is where you may need to cut things you don’t like doing as much out of your life to make room for it.
You have also got this poll option over here.
This poll option can be really good. It puts a big pop up on the right side. I’ve tried this and it helped me get one of my best streams out next time even though the stream itself didn’t have that much engagement that time.
The next stream got hundreds of shares, hundreds of viewers at once for almost the whole stream.
I asked, “What map do you want me to play next?” on this poll. It popped up on the stream and I got a lot of responses on that. It helped me pick out the best maps to play, and then people came back for that.
Finally, over here you have got the “Actions” tab.
The “Actions” tab gives you some things you can do. You can do an “Instant Game.” I haven’t done this yet. The Discord notifications, I highly recommend having a Discord server and setting this up. You can also end your stream from there, which is good because sometimes it can be hard to find the end button otherwise.
You can also do announcements and if you want to request follows or request shares, these announcements can be a good way to do that.
When you are live over here, you will see the data about your stream. You will see the title, the start time, it will say when it’s currently live.
It will show you your bitrate, it will show you both your video and your audio. It will give you a permalink to the video, and then finally you have got this “Comments” tab and I will show you how I set all of this up for maximum effect right here.
This is your key gaming streamer dashboard.
You want to get really friendly and comfortable with this dashboard because it has many of your tools to make a successful stream and you will need to know how to use each thing on this gaming streamer dashboard.
You will want to keep this gaming streamer dashboard open while you are streaming, so that you can make sure not to miss anything.
Thank you for learning about the Facebook gaming streamer dashboard here with me. I hope this was helpful for you to see this.
You have watched this much, I imagine you will absolutely love my “Facebook Live Gaming” course at Uthena.com/courses/fb.gg.
This is a really detailed course. It’s got a ton of good information you are going to love and anything new I make will be added into this course first where you will be able to see it.
You will learn everything to earn money as a new streamer. You don’t need to build up a huge number of viewers to earn great money and do streaming full time.
As you might notice, many of my streams, there is not a massive amount of people watching. There might be 20, 30, or 50, and yet with teaching video courses and selling them on Uthena, even at $8.18, I’m able to make a full-time income and support a bunch of other people making a full-time income as well.
If you have got the skills to do live gaming, you may be able to teach as well.
If you would like to get this course at the very best value, will you please join the Uthena partner program because I’ve got a mastermind of my inner circle and we are working together to build up Uthena.com?
Many of us have YouTube channels, Facebook pages, we are doing gaming or we are teaching courses.
Also, if you just want to buy all my courses, the “Jerry Banfield Forever Course Bundle“ includes everything I’ve made and will make forever including this course.
I think you might love that.
You also get access with this course to my Facebook group and Discord server where I answer questions.
Thank you very much for watching this.
I love you.
You are awesome.
Congrats on making it to the end and maybe I will see you in the Facebook gaming course soon.
Yes, you even can have electronic music from me.
I will play a little clip from one of my favorite songs here for you.
