What is Super Chat?
In this video, YouTube creator Preston from PrestonPlayz and TBNRFrags discuss all the things he's learned about using Super Chat, and shares some of his best practices for using the feature.
Today I'm going to be teaching you guys about Super Chat and why you need to start using it right this second.
What's up guys? My name is Preston and I run a multitude of different YouTube channels, mostly gaming, and I have a ton of fun doing it. So, I'm going to do my best to teach you guys how I've used Super Chat on my channel and some other good Super Chat practices.
So, for those of you who do not know what a Super Chat is, essentially it's a comment that is going to be pinned and highlighted in your live stream chat. Depending on the monetary amount of the Super Chat, it will change colours and the duration for how long it's going to be pinned. It could be longer or shorter. I definitely think that super chatting gives us and the viewers a really cool way to engage with one another and, of course, you can also develop a new source of income for your channel. Which is great! So, now you might be thinking why Super Chat? One of the coolest things in my opinion about YouTube is the direct interaction you get to have with your audience, whether you're a gaming live streamer or live streaming yourself cooking something. It doesn't matter what you're doing you can still engage with your audience and Super Chat does a great job at that. Integrated into YouTube which means it's extremely accessible for your viewers, very easy to use, not to mention it's kind of like a domino effect. When one viewer Super Chats then another Super Chats and then another, it catches on like fire and it's awesome.
Not only is Super Chat a great way to start communicating more with the audience and letting them be heard but of course you can also use it to increase your revenue. I actually ended up using a lot of the Super Chat revenue that I made to fund other videos. It's a win-win situation. When enabling Super Chats on your channel for the first time I think it's very important for you guys to make sure that you introduce it to your audience, briefly mentioning it at the beginning of your next live stream. Saying, 'hey guys, I've got this new awesome feature Super Chat. If you guys want to support the channel, consider sending a Super Chat'. And as soon as somebody does the first Super Chat, you can show it off and be like, 'guys that's the Super Chat! Look at the comments right now. This is somebody who's Super Chatted and now their message is up there for everybody to see'. So, not only do they get to interact with you but their super chat is now showcased off to everybody watching the live stream, which I think a lot of viewers really like.
If you guys have any more questions related to Super Chat, make sure that you guys comment down below and drive to the YouTube Creators channel. And don't forget, if you guys want you can stop on one of my channels, PrestonPlayz or TBNRFrags. But most importantly, have a great day and thank you so much for watching.
