You are much more likely to sell your skins if they appear to be high quality and have some value.
While playing Clash of Streamers, you will notice two different skin types:
- Real life faces
- Custom artwork
While a real life face or some custom artwork can both be considered high quality, it’s important you choose what fits best for your overall brand.
When should you use your real life face?
If you are already a popular icon on Twitch/YouTube/Facebook, that would be a good time to use your face as your skins.
Generally, people should be able to recognize who they are looking at. Perhaps not initially, but you should already be using your face frequently online so that your face is connected to whatever stream or channel you are advertising.
Essentially, you should only use your own face as your skins if your image is largely what is considered the brand of your stream/channel/page!
If you fall under this category, it’s important that you have extremely high quality pictures to use as your skins. If you do have high quality pictures, people will be much more likely to give you money for your skins!
You can get high quality skins of your face in the following ways:
- Take photos with a high quality camera
- Use expressive facial expressions to evoke emotions
- Use props to enhance the photos
- Use iconic shots of your face which fans recognize
- Enhance photos with image effects (using Photoshop or some other editing tool)
If you take pictures with the above advice in mind, you will likely have a lot more success selling your skins to players.
Every photo was taken using a high quality camera, props are used, expressive facial expressions are used, some image effects are applied, and some iconic images of Athene are used.
Because of this, AtheneLive fans who really want to support him will be much more likely to actually purchase his skins.
When should you use some custom artwork as your skins?
If your brand does not include your personal image, then you should use custom artwork as your skins.
The skins can be in the form of cartoon artwork, pixel artwork, or any other type of custom artwork.
If you use the strategy of custom artwork, you won’t really need an already established brand to help you sell your skins.
As long as you manage to have extremely high quality skins in a unique style of artwork which fits well in Clash of Streamers and has some sort of an audience, you will likely find success selling skins.
Here are some examples of some skins which we would consider high quality artwork:
As you can see by these three examples, they all have their own unique style of artwork. The artwork is high quality, and each appeals to a different audience.
If you have artwork like this, you are much more likely to have success selling these skins than you might by simply trying to sell images of your face.
The higher the quality of your skins, the better the chance you have at standing out from the rest of the competition!
