The final numbers for 2015 are in. I'd like to share some of the data with you because the numbers are outstanding and I can't express how grateful I am to everyone who watched, viewed and subscribed to any of these channels.
First the Livestream data because that's what we started with in Feb 2015 because all we were working with was mobile devices (Boy, have things changed since then. I can't wait to see what improvements we make in 2016). Livestream we have 51 followers. That's all the data they provide. I know most of our monthly streams had 100s of views before they were taken off the site after 30 days. Incredible because we only used Livestream for a few months.
Twitch we ended 2015 with 68 followers and 599 unique views. Again, wow. We weren't using Twitch the "normal" way because the only way we could broadcast to Twitch was by a screen mirroring program off my Nexus tablet which wasn't ideal but we wanted to provide Golem Arcana content to more people.
Now the Youtube data. Are you ready for this? Just to show how far we've come, remember we started our Youtube channel March 22, shooting videos with my iPhone. We weren't streaming on Youtube. We ended 2015 with 153 Youtube subscribers, 7,632 views and 38,087 minutes watched. I know those numbers are just a drop in the bucket to a lot of Youtube channels, but for me that's just incredible because I started out doing this without any clue what I was doing, so to think people watched our channels for over 7,000 hours (more if we could factor in the time from Twitch and Livestream) in 2015 just boggles my mind.
So what does this mean for 2016? Well, we're still going to provide online content for Golem Arcana. Love the game. Love the tech. Love the company - great people.
We're going to finish Page Flippers season 1 featuring DestinyQuest "The Legion of Shadow". I'm planning a big season finale for Page Flippers. It should be a great event. Michael J. Ward is a terrific person and an incredible writer so we want to continue to support his work as much as possible.
We've got a lot of tabletop and board game streaming planned. Some of the games are out, some of them are not! :) We're really excited to do more game play streaming and show you all some games that we're really excited about in 2016.
We were invited back to all the conventions we set up at in 2015. We'll be returning to those conventions as well as possibly adding 1-2 more.
We also have something up our sleeve for Youtube that we're REALLY excited about. We can't disclose it just yet, but know that it involves a company that provides a great product with great value and service. We can't wait to help get the word out about it. Stay tuned for that announcement in the coming weeks.
If you've read this post all the way to this point, again thank you so much for making our 2015 such an incredible year. We really couldn't have done it without you. We can't wait to do even more in 2016! -Doug
