Sponsorships are ideal. Companies will pay you, or give you gear, to support your lifestyle, and in return you give them exposure. If you go the affiliate route, you will be able to earn commissions from sales you refer to companies. Most pay about 10% per purchased item, but it can be difficult to earn income this way.
We update our list of sponsors and affiliates whenever we find new opportunities. Be sure to check this tab to view the newest finds. Or sign up for our newsletter and get them sent straight to your inbox.
With over 100 opportunities out there it's hard to know which ones are the best. We've compiled our favorites for you and we'll continue to update this list as we hear feedback from you.
Gaming chairs have a unique design that offers a sporty look all while keeping you comfortable during long gaming sessions.
The original idea for the design was to replicate the feel you have when driving a sports car, which is why almost all gaming chairs are designed to look like a car seat. They have very high backrests and flared out sides. The sides of the seat will typically have additional padding.
The sides of the backrest will be slightly curved inward. Most models will also have some type of cutouts in the backrest to help add to the sporty look, and some allow you to showcase your very own branding.
Clothing companies don't only sponsor teams, esports leagues and events. Quite a few of them offer affiliate opportunities that allow you to get a commission from every sale you refer to them. We've found a few that also offer sponsorship opportunities to streamers, but they are a little more difficult to obtain, as you need to be a high-caliber streamer.
Gaming computers can be custom assembled by gaming and hardware enthusiasts, but also by companies that specialize in producing custom gaming rigs. That's because of the large variety of parts that can go into a computer built to play video games. These custom computer manufacturers that sell ready-to-play computers are often boutique models, allowing them to compete on aesthetic design in addition to the hardware inside.
Gaming controllers have been around since the 1960s and include game pads, paddles, steering wheels, joysticks and more. The companies listed above mostly offer custom controllers or modifications to existing controllers that improve comfort and precision. So if you're a console player on Xbox or Playstation, these companies offer great sponsorship opportunities for you.
Energy drinks contain sugar and stimulant compounds, usually caffeine, which is marketed as providing mental and physical stimulation. Most effects of energy drinks on cognitive performance, such as increased attention and reaction speed, are primarily due to the presence of caffeine. So if you rely on energy drinks or caffeine during your streaming sessions, we recommend you apply to one of these potential sponsors.
Food is loosely defined here. We include food companies that sell energy bars and beef jerky, but we also include mints (that contain caffeine). Food is always an important aspect of gaming, it keeps you satisfied and often times provides the energy needed for long gaming sessions. The issue is that a lot of people go the easy-route and eat junk food. Well, these companies are trying to change that and offer healthy alternatives. If you want to be a bit healthier while streaming, try to get a sponsorship with any of the companies above.
Hardware companies include: keyboards, mice, monitors, headsets, towers, power supplies, modems - you get the gist. It's a broad category with some of the most well-known gaming companies on the planet. This list of companies offer a wide range of sponsorships and affiliate opportunities. Just keep in mind that well-known orgs will be more difficult to obtain sponsorship deals, which is why we recommend browsing all opportunities in the hardware section.
