I’m the original author of the Star Citizen Giveaways page on Facebook which has just reached 500 Followers! Through this page, I have shared every Star Citizen giveaway I can find without getting too spammy, meaning I gave to miss one here and there.
My effort has attracted popular Twitch streamers to become authors on the page. Meaning they have limited publishing permission but they do get to publish full posts and not just visitor posts.
The next goal is to reach 500 Likes and that will happen very soon. Nothing will change on reaching the goal because I still don’t have a source of funds. Reaching 500 likes will give the page some weight and an excuse to blog about it more. That will do for now and I will continue to enjoy curating giveaways.
So at the moment, I nothing from running this page. I do have my Star Citizen referral link on the “Play Game” button but anyone who uses their referral code will know that it takes thousands of visitors to make a difference on the rewards ladder.
I estimate around one in twenty new Star Citizens will buy a package. The majority of people visiting my page already have an account. So the number of clicks on the play game button is very low, about 10% of people who click will register, and you get the point. I’m not moving up the referral ladder on the Roberts Space Industries (the games official site) website through this Facebook page and I didn’t expect to either.
I do hope to run my own giveaways from the page and my reward would be traffic being sent to my other gaming pages. I would do this by setting giveaway requirements i.e. Follow me on Twitch, share my Tweet, comment on my YouTube video to win and so on. But none of this will happen without funds and I’m years away from a situation where gaming provides a revenue.
This Facebook page is just one of my many moves to eventually generate a revenue and put the money back into the community because it’s all for fun! I’ll continue to build up trust and enjoy myself.
