Social Media

30 years ago, if you wanted to deliver a message to an audience, you’d have to pay for access to that audience via traditional mediums like newspaper, radio, or television. Today, you still have access to those mediums, however, the ability to collect your OWN audience that you can contact…

If you haven’t heard by now, social media is very important for ANY brand. It’s even more important for brands whose product is *mostly* attention. When attention is your product, you need to be at the forefront of producing attention grabbing posts. …

Videography

For this chapter, I’m going to break video down into 2 categories. The first is game play mashups and the second is IRL (in real life) video. Both are extremely important.

When I say game play mashups, I’m referring to highlight reels and stream highlights. Relative to IRL content…

In today’s segmented media landscape, it’s more important than ever to have a single source of truth. Your website. Twitter is fantastic for updates, Instagram is a great place to share your snapshots, YouTube is like your companies own TV station. But your website…your website is the place your audience, partners, and investors should go…


Our man, Ghost, at DHATX18.

Disrupt Gaming is approximately six months into its lifespan. On one hand this is an accomplishment in and of itself because I’ve watched THOUSANDS of other orgs start up and then quickly disappear in that timespan. On the other hand, it means nothing because in another 6 months, should we swing and miss too many times, we could be buried in the Esports graveyard. While there are many Esports teams you could emulate, there are only a small handful that have become successful BUSINESSES.

Yes, I said it, the B word. You don’t hear it often in this industry. I…


Kenny In Action @ DreamHack Austin 2018

As we’ve all heard by now, Content is King. This is especially true in the world of Esports where audiences aren’t only interested in watching their favorite players mentally decapitate their opponents, they also want to see interesting stories involving their favorite teams and players.

Kenny Matz, the videographer/photgrapher for Disrupt Gaming, fills us in on his story and some tips and tricks.

How did you get into photography/video in general, and then how did you work your way into Esports specifically?

Before I got my camera about 2 years ago I always thought I had an eye for photography and I had always taken good pictures with my phone or my mom’s camera. So when I finally got…


I was dead last in The Austin Premier League’s Fantasy Football A Division in 2017. In 2012 the loser had to wear a speedo to a barge party, 2013 was a stand-up comedy routine, 2014 was getting hunted by a paintball team, 2015 was a sexy calendar shoot, and 2016 was hanging a pair of testicles from your vehicle’s trailer hitch for 3 months. This year’s punishment? A triathlon. To satisfy that punishment, a “Sprint” Tri would do the trick. Unfortunately, that would not do the trick for me personally. I’ve had an IronMan on my bucket list for a…


I’ve seen the same story across different categories many times recently. Hell, I even catch it happening to myself. It’s frustrating, it’s demotivating, it can completely kill your project or your goal. It’s… a LACK OF PROGRESS. It can happen to the best of us. The solution is simple; measurement. If you find that you aren’t systematically moving closer to your objective, you need to make sure that you are measuring (aka tracking) the right things. As I’ve mentioned before, for me, health and fitness is a great metaphor for lots of other categories in life. …

I’ve spent over two years dealing exclusively with the business side of esports. Let me tell you this definitively: It is not easy to create a financially self sustaining team. When you put all the revenue generating opportunities for an early stage team on the table, it ends up coming down to two things. The first is prize winnings and the second is sponsorship revenue. Depending on how good you or your team is, the first option could produce real revenue, although probably not enough to support salaries and infrastructure. The second option is your best bet for revenue, BUT…


If you are trying to change the way your body looks, and you are not lifting heavy shit, you are most likely not optimizing your time spent training (not working out, not exercising, TRAINING).

Before I get too deep into this, I’d like to provide some context about who I am specifically addressing in this post. I’m assuming A) that you have actually made a decisive decision to change the way you look B)only have 3–4 hours a week to train C) don’t have unlimted resources to have optimal conditions like a personal chef, personal trainer, etc and finally D)…
