Case Study: The Yogscast

Duel makes interacting with our community so much easier and saves us a lot of time.” Mike Fleming, Marketing Manager, The Yogscast


Yogscast produces gaming related video content to their YouTube channel, YOGSCAST Lewis & Simon, which is currently approaching 3.5 billion views. Yogscast’s popularity establishes the brand as Britain’s largest gaming channel, making it vital for them to constantly engage with their fans. In order to help the Yogscast team communicate with their growing audience in a more fun way, they use Duel to run regular decision polls and competitions with their fans.

Polling Campaign Aims:

  • Interact with their audience in a new, engaging way
  • Gain valuable feedback on what their fans want
  • Drive online merchandise sales

How Did Duel Reach These Aims?

Yogscast ran Duel polls to allow their fans to vote between their favorite merchandise and designs. These polls within Duel were easily shared across all of the Yogscast’s social media channels, and at the end led participants to visit the brand’s online merchandise store.
