Add Custom TURBO emotes tier & allow for Streamers to grant access to existing Emotes to all TURBO viewers in chat. Add Affilate Bonuses &..
If there was a way for the affiliate/partner streamers to get a custom link (like the amazon affiliate program,) and for each user sign up you get a one-time (slightly higher than a regular sub) bonus, and a small monthly resub bonus. I think users would go for it, but only if you get the emotes set up for TURBO users.
The one thing that prevents all the heavy twitch viewers that I know in MST3K, RIFFTRAX and other small 24/7 channels is the lack of channel emotes.
I think adding an additional TURBO emotes section so that Streamers can upload custom animated and regular TURBO user only emotes would really help. This should already be a thing.
To really push the TURBO sales TWITCH needs to put a setting in the emotes panel for the Streamer to tick on/off every existing emote/tier for all TURBO users in their chat. This could be implemented so that all TURBO users can access the approved Channel emotes and the custom TURBO emotes from the emote menu pinned at the top. In every channel this section would change to that channel’s granted emotes and that channel’s custom TURBO emotes.
This is to be fair to regular subscribers so that the emotes can only be used in that channel’s chat, and not in other channels chats.
This would be a huge win-win for all. For those of us that have Ads, TURBO users count. For smaller channels you could push the TURBO subs and earn that one-time sign up bonus and a smaller re-sub bonus for every month they are a TURBO subscriber. Which is more then you get now from TURBO users which is next to nothing for non-24/7 small channels.
For the TURBO subscriber you should be able to use your free PRIME sub as a credit toward your TURBO sub, dropping your monthly TURBO fee down a buck or two, you get no commercials on all the channels you watch, a set of custom emotes in EVERY channel AND you get to support the channels you watch!
And of course for Twitch the TURBO sales would soar!
IF you like these ideas, please tweet them out and post them where Twitch Employees will see them, Thanks.
I already voted but I did want to add a suggestion. SInce I'm on turbo, I don't see ads, but people keep gifting me subs. It's a nice gesture, but I don't need it. I would like a feature to "pay forward" gift subs to people who don't have one already.
A big difference between having a D-Live account vs a Twitch account is the higher subscription levels are able to design and use their customized emotes.
Emotes are one of the things that make engaging on Twitch unique and fun, so I think this is a great idea!
This is a prime example of thinksmarts. Can we make this happen TWITCH? I buy subs and am a TURBO member. I'm up for the best way I can help the ones I watch. Thanks!
