Amazon bought Twitch at a price of more than $1.1 billion, which includes cash of $970 million. So, what does Amazon get for all of this money?
Two things: They'll get a deeply engaged video audience as well as a media company that is already making money in a very unconventional way.
As for the viewers, Amazon knows the audience for live streaming video games is very large and growing. Twitch viewers, in 2013, watched an average of 1 hour and 45 minutes per day on the site.
Currently Amazon spends over a billion dollars each year for its video content; however, Twitch obtains all of its content absolutely free. Clearly the fact that there is already a hefty profit being made by Twitch is certainly interesting. We estimate that Twitch is already making in excess of $72 million on its run rate.
GoDaddy Hosting has sealed the deal and acquired the email marketing company named Mad Mimi. The bold move was made to give GoDaddy a better strategy to market itself towards small businesses, and to give it a better foothold in the area of email marketing. Until now this was an area in which the company was lacking any real presence.
Mad Mimi is well known in the area of customer service, which GoDaddy wants to capitalize on and bring to it's own small business clients. GoDaddy's SVP of Business Applications, Steven Aldrich, says they will now incorporate Mad Mimi's technology into the fold, replacing the old "Easy Email Marketing" program which it had in place up to this point. Exact terms of the deal are still not public, but although Mad Mimi was profitable, it was limited in terms of it's funding.
