What to expect in this course:

Collaborations with other content creators are a great way to foster relationships, expand your reach to a new audience, and bring fresh, exciting content to your channel.

While communication is key to most things when working with others, it’s particularly important when it comes to making sure a collaboration actually happens and happens without a major hitch.

Determining when and where the event will take place, the rules for the content (i.e no swearing allowed), and the microphone situation (we have to talk about that), are all important aspects of making sure a collaboration goes smoothly.

Learn about how Corpse Husband had explosive growth with Among Us and how you can find the right collaborative partners.

He/Him

Deejay Knight has been active in the gaming industry since 2006. Currently, he is an entertainer on Twitch, voice actor & event host. His content focuses heavily on space and various Sci-Fi topics. Whether hosting events or entertaining in his channel, he uses his platform to promote positivity and the value of education while adding as much comedy as possible.

Having a plan is an important part of the process. If you’re going into attempting a collaboration without at least an understanding of the end goal you have in mind, it may not work out all that well.

Come prepared with your compelling idea, be excited about it, have a good idea whether or not it would fit the person you’re asking, and be able to tell them how you think it would benefit them.”

“If collaborations work for you and bring energy and joy to you and your audience, that’s amazing!

But if you enjoy streaming solo or don’t have the social energy to frequently collab with others, be kind to yourself about it and know that there’s plenty of avenues to success and collaborations are just one piece of a much bigger puzzle.

What works for you and feels right to you is what makes for the best content, always.”

Collaborating With Other Creators

Collaborating in the streaming space is a great way to network and grow your audience. Partnering together with other creatives is a popular tactic with YouTube creators and an important strategy for streamers in order to crossover communities and be introduced to new viewers. Collaborations can be short-term or long-term depending on the arrangement, but regardless of the timeline, the collaborations should feel beneficial to everyone involved. Unless you personally know someone, targeting someone with a much larger audience than you for a collaboration will probably not work out in your favor. Remember that every collaboration is an opportunity to expand your reach, if it is successful! The partnership will only be successful if everyone involved can get excited about the opportunity. Be genuine in your interactions and work with fellow streamers because you vibe and want to grow or build a relationship!  Corpse Husband's Growth Explosion with Among UsGames like Among Us and Fall Guys have shown the success creators can have with collaborative content. Most people in the streaming space have heard the name Corpse Husband, but Corpse is not new as an internet personality, not by a long shot. He started his Youtube channel in 2015, using it mainly to post video narrations of submitted horror stories. And while he had a solid following, from September to November 2020 his YouTube channel grew from 1.3 million to over 5 million subscribers. The rapid growth of his channel is largely due to collaborating with popular creators like Valkyrae, DisguisedToast, and MrBeast. Which led to him playing games with US politician Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and TV Host Jimmy Kimmel, making Corpse Husband a household name. In October 2020, Corspe Husband gained nearly 2.5 million new YouTube subscribers.   Types of Collaborative Content Not sure what you would even collaborate with...
