In this article, we show affiliates how they can monetise their content on Twitch.
Adding Twitch to your traffic sources
To add Twitch to your account, you can do so by going to Settings > Traffic Sources and clicking Add New under the Traffic Sources subheading. Then, an overlay will appear requiring you to enter Type (please select Video), Name, URL, Category, Description, Approximate Weekly Visitors and Approximate Years Online. Simply add in your Twitch profile's URL and all fields are filled in, press Save and it will be added to your account.
How to promote via Twitch
After you have successfully added your Twitch account as a Traffic Source to your Commission Factory account, you’re now able to start promoting via your Twitch profile.
In order to earn commissions on sales, your audience will need to click through one of your Commission Factory Affiliate tracking links. Once approved onto an advertiser program, tracking links can be found in the Creatives section of your Affiliate account and under the Text Links section.
To learn more about Text Links, please see the following articles:
- Affiliate links - Also known as Text Links, affiliates can place their affiliates links in their stream bio, create chat links and through the comments section. Affiliates can also create live call to actions on the live stream to direct their audience to the advertiser website.
- Exclusive Clickless Coupon Codes - Requesting an exclusive clickless coupon code from an advertiser to use in your promotional efforts is a great way to incentivise your audience.
These can then be posted virtually anywhere you can comment on Twitch. Whether it be on a video description, in the comments section or in your stream bio. For more information on exclusive clickless coupons, please read another one of our Help Centre articles here.
