Cody Dietrich announces his new company Dietrich Online Services is open and ready for business.
Dietrich Online Services, or DOS, is a “Content Creation Liaison” that brings exposure to games from Publishers and Developers to content creators that might not otherwise know the existence of, or have access to their titles. By personally vetting each source, game providers know that their games are being presented to actual content creators eager to try out new games.
After a soft launch in 2015, Dietrich Online Services has been fostering an ever-growing list of relationships with Content Creators on YouTube, Twitch and other popular media sites as well as Publishers and Developers looking to gain exposure for their titles.
What developers and publishers have had to say about Dietrich Online Services:
“Dietrich Online Services has been a valuable resource in getting our games distributed to the YouTube gaming community. I’ve been able to engage with and get content created by a fabulous network of excited YouTubers. I would definitely work with Dietrich Online Services again.”
– Raghav Mathur, Chief Marketing Officer of Black Shell Media
“In a time where YouTube and Twitch are becoming more popular with gamers and how it helps gives exposure to indie developers, Dietrich Online Services couldn’t have come at a better time. Cody has kept me in the loop about my review keys every step of the way and I know he can be trusted to handle any future releases we have.”
– Rafal Kokosza, Founder of GrabTheGames
To this point, DOS also provides a living Scammer List on their site. It is unfortunate the number of people out there that pose as journalists and content creators to scam free games. Since a lot of the studios involved are small, they just do not have the time or resources to vet each new request that comes in.
Check out the DOS Scammer List Here:
“ DOS was started because I grew tired of seeing tweets about how developers were getting scammed by gamers claiming to be reviewers and/or content creators. Instead of helping these new and upcoming games get some much needed (and very appreciated) exposure, these frauds take these review keys just to end up leaving without a trace, or worse, putting it on a resell site to earn a profit. This has put a stigma on legitimate content creators who may not have a big public following such as famous YouTubers PewDiePie and Markiplier, and in turn causes developers and publishers to shy away from unknown and unproven outlets.
I wanted to create a service for these game developers where they knew the key was going to someone that was vetted and would be updated on what a channel is doing with their review key. If one were accepted for a copy of a game and didn’t follow through, that channel would be banned from the mailing list and placed on the scammer list. Thankfully I haven’t had to do that since DOS’s conception, but I plan on being very transparent when it happens based on a key sent to me in good faith. ”
– Richard “Cody” Dietrich, Founder of Dietrich Online Services
