How Amazon Uses Sideqik Influencer Data to Cast Shows and Build Partnerships

When one of Amazon’s latest docuseries Streaming In Real Life began casting, the team was looking for streamers that played specific gaming titles and had strong connections with their community. In addition to finding streamers that would connect with their viewing audience, they also needed brand partners and sponsors to support the show. 

After casting for the first couple of pilot episodes, executive producer Jennifer Erdman and her team identified several challenges in the process that created inefficiencies in their process. “One of our biggest challenges was the amount of time it took for us to research possible streamers to work with. Once we found them – we still needed more data to support meaningful brand partnerships,” said Erdman. 

  • Researching candidates for the show
  • Identifying streamers based on audience, reach, and games played
  • Building value for streamers with sponsors

To streamline the process of casting streamers and launching sponsorships, the Uspech Marketing team leveraged Sideqik’s influencer platform. With more social data than any other influencer platform, Sideqik was the perfect platform for providing social metrics and reach on mainstream social media networks – but also streaming specific networks like Twitch and YouTube.

Robust Discovery and Search

Using Sideqik’s search functionality, the team was able to search for streamers by network and narrow down to find streamers playing specific games. Before using Sideqik, the team spent half of their week manually searching for streamers using traditional search engines. Additionally, once they found streamers – more people hours went into doing more research about each streamer to find quality candidates. 

Exportable Profiles

When presenting streamers to the production team for casting or to partners for potential sponsorships, Sideqik’s export feature enabled the team to deliver a professional profile for review. All of the relevant data about a particular streamer was readily available and immediately ready for distribution with the click of a button. 

Audience Demographics

When securing brand partnerships for the show, Sideqik’s audience demographics made it easy for the team to build value for the streamers cast in the show. By aligning the streamers reach with the potential brand’s target audience – the Amazon team was able to identify unique partnership opportunities based on interests and affinities. This data allowed the show to create authentic partnerships with brands.
