Speedify LIVE: How Wyrmwood Built Their Quality Gaming Supplies Brand Through Livestreaming
May 19, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm EDT
On the 85th episode of Speedify LIVE we take a look at the world of tabletop gaming, as we're joined by Paulie from Wyrmwood Gaming, a quality gaming supplies & furniture company that grew their brand through livestreaming and Kickstarter campaigns.
We discuss why the company chose Kickstarter, how Wyrmwood's streaming and community has evolved over the years, and how they may be using Speedify for some upcoming streams!
Here are our 5 takeaways from our chat with Paulie:
- For streaming, Paulie currently uses the following setup: a pre-built computer with an RTX 2070 SUPER graphics card, a Samsung M.2 SSD, 16GB of RAM; using OBS for the Wyrmwood streams for its customizability with plugins, and Streamlabs OBS for his own streams for its simplicity. They also have four Logitech Mevo cameras using NDI technology!
- Wyrmwood initially started using Kickstarter just to crowdfund projects, but they have stuck with the platform even now for multiple reasons: it provides good advertising by pushing projects and getting people involved; and it's a great way to plan projects more effectively.
- Paulie says that one of the biggest challenges for their streams has been managing all the moving parts that come with a multi-camera stream. More cameras means needing more people, so they always need to have enough people available to help with the streams so they could go as smoothly as possible.
- The company also has a YouTube channel, which they’re calling Wyrm Lyfe, mainly used to maintain transparency with their community! The channel allows them to explain why they do certain projects, and pretty much just document everything that happens at the company.
- The Wyrmwood streams are heading out to conventions soon, and Paulie says they're planning on using Speedify for their IRL streams! He mentions that he has tested Speedify already, and finds it to be a great alternative to hardware bonding solutions, and a good way to help keep streams online in case of interruptions.
We have our Wyrm Lyfe, which is our YouTube vlog that kind of shows the transparency, the ins and outs of building a company. It's all about transparency, that's really what it boils down to.
