Berlin International Gaming, based in Germany, is one of the leading esports teams in the world. In addition to their successes in esports, they nurture streamers. Their network consists of 25 streamers – both professional players who stream during breaks from official matches, and content creators focused on live streaming. Sponsorship livestreaming campaigns are an integral part of BIG’s partnerships. Especially in times without offline events, streams are a crucial place where their fans gather and the organisation can fulfil sponsorship commitments.
To automate streamer management and monetise live streaming more effectively, BIG has entered into a partnership with Streamcoi, streamer management platform. Using one dashboard, the platform facilitates the display of innovative animated campaigns and messages on the screen on multiple streams simultaneously. It also measures accurate statistics for individual streamers as well as the whole network to use the full potential of a livestreaming network. One of the aims of the partnership is also to alleviate the workload of professional players. With Streamcoi, after a quick one-time setup, the streamer does not have to do anything – everything is taken care of by the managers.
“Live streaming is an increasingly important part of our brand and advertising strategy. We see the high value for our partners and BIG as a brand. It is therefore only logical that we expand our streaming activities even more in the future. Streamcoi enables us to track all channels and effectively manage campaigns. The broadcasting of effective advertising concepts, e.g., via interactive animations, is greatly facilitated. This allows us to create reports much faster and more transparently and optimize the results with our streamers and
partners. Streamcoi has become an integral part of our daily work routine.” – Daniel Finkler, CEO at BIG
“Working with BIG is a true partnership where we not only create a product for them but together with them. Through feedback and the implementation of BIG’s innovative campaigns, Streamcoi can change the face of live streaming in many organisations around the world. With a strong relationship with esports, we create campaigns that are appreciated by viewers, partners and most importantly streamers. – Jakub Janaszek, Brand Manager at Streamcoi
How BIG automated 7 sponsor campaigns across 25 streams
Although Streamcoi is currently used by dozens of teams, agencies and tournament organisers, BIG was one of the first users on the platform. Over the past year, they have promoted their merchandise and executed campaigns for SkinBaron, Backforce, OMEN, Betway, Volvic, FaceIT while collecting accurate reports for each partner and generating hundreds of thousands of impressions and clicks for each. One example of innovative partner placement while bringing value to fans is the ongoing campaign for language learning platform Babbel. A moving animation interacts with the audience by asking them questions, while at the same time fans can receive discount codes in a chat message.
