I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about the site and my gaming network, and now that I have my own domain set up, I think it would be great to really expand on an affiliated network. Currently, I already have two great affiliates that I cross-promote with, write for, and have write on my site: Nerdy But Flirty and Random Thoughts. I have really enjoyed working with both of those sites, and Sarah and Warren respectively are great people to know and work with.
How would affiliation work? Well, for one, I plan to make a new tab near the top of my site that will be an “Affiliates” page and where I will list any affiliated sites/communities/individuals at, which will exist separately from my massively-growing list of links that displays lower down on the side-bar of the page. Second, any affiliates that want something written or promoted here will be able to request me doing so, and if they want to and are on good standing, I may allow them to have an “Author” account here on the site. I would want some of their stuff promoted here and I would want some of mine promoted on their site.
Affiliates will get promoted fairly regularly on my podcast, on YouTube, and on Twitch.TV. This is a courtesy I would also expect to be returned. On Twitch and YouTube, I will feature affiliates on my main channel splash-pages as “Featured Channels” and would want them to do the same, basically in an effort to drive up cross-subscriptions. Also, on Twitter I would promote them some and mention cool stuff they did, and likewise would want the same done related to my stuff.
I also will feature some of their content on my site (videos, podcasts, etc) and would love my content promoted on theirs. Doing some co-host bits and guest spots on each other’s media content would be fantastic too, as regular collaboration could be a lot of fun!
We can also talk about other details too!
