As you channel grows, it is a good idea to discover the brands you want to work with in the future. Choose products you are passionate about. Find out what they look for in those they sponsor and align your channel with their values.

When it comes time for you to find gaming sponsors for your team or channel, take the time to find brands that you love. Research the company to find out about their values and see if they align with your own.
