One month ago we launched our first esports content page Rocketeers.gg, the magazine all about Rocket League esports. 30 days later we are proud to say that Rocketeers’ first month has been a very successful one.
Our magazine had almost 10.000 unique users in its first month. This traffic is completely organic. We didn’t put up a single ad. Instead we made it our mission to give a niche community exactly the content they’ve been waiting for: Unique in-depth stories about the Rocket League esports scene.
Rocketeers.gg is all about the community. Which is why we also set up our own Discord server where people can discuss the latest news, find new team mates and of course get in touch with the authors of the magazine. Our server already has more than 80 members including some pro-players and the community is growing daily.
Currently 7 people contribute to the page. When we launched the portal only 2 authors were on board. But Rocketeers.gg resonated so well in the community that many reached out to us, because they wanted to become a part of this growing community.
47 articles were published since the launch on January 24th – that is more than one new in-depth story per day about the pro-scene of Rocket League.
28.843 articles were read – almost three articles per user. The majority of our users come from the US (43%), followed by Germany (12%), UK (10%) and Canada (5%). But esports is a global phenomenon: Rocketeers.gg reached people from 106 different countries such as Paraguay, Armenia, Iceland, South Korea, Egypt, Slovakia, Japan, Turkey and South Africa.
Our most-read article is an interview with Rocket League player M1k3Rules, who’s one of Rocket League’s most charismatic players. Our Tweet that informed our readers about the interview was liked hundreds of times and spawned comments from high-profile players such as Paris Saint-Germain’s current Dreamhack champion Bluey.
Would love to see mike back in the pro scene, one of my idols back in 2015/2016, hope he can come back to achieve great things.❤️
The most important thing: The feedback, from fans, players, community veterans and Rocket League officials, has been nothing but positive. Every article is embraced by the community. We’re grateful for all the positivity, because it shows us that Rocketeers.gg is on the right track. Here are some nice comments readers left us over at Reddit.
In conclusion it’s safe to say that Rocketeers’ first month was an amazing experience, but of course the Rocketeers journey has just begun. We have many ideas for the future and of course for more esports magazines. There are already plenty of things in development. We will keep you updated as soon as we can announce something.
