Willow, an all-in-one bio link tool, helps users generate more revenue and make their links more discoverable. Willow connects audiences to a user’s entire online portfolio by turning their bio into a landing page for their most important links. It comes with an integrated tipping feature to boost revenue and allows audiences to tip directly on the page.
Built by the team at Streamlabs, Willow is tailor-made for creators, influencers, and brands in the online creator ecosystem. It unifies a user’s online presence so that fans, potential business partners, and sponsors can quickly view their work and connect.
“Live streamers, creators, and influencers are unique because their online presence is a major part of their brand. Showcasing that becomes increasingly difficult when their online identity is scattered throughout a dozen different channels and platforms, said Ashray Urs, Head of Product at Streamlabs. “Willow unifies this experience by giving creators a central hub to showcase who they are, improving brand awareness and monetization.”
“Honorees like Willow are setting the standard for innovation and creativity on the Internet,” said Claire Graves, President of The Webby Awards. “It is an incredible achievement to be selected among the best from more than 14,300 entries we received this year.”
Founded on the belief that we want to help creators make a living doing what they love, Streamlabs provides a robust suite of features to help creators better engage with their fans, grow audiences, and improve monetization. Building on this mission, Streamlabs is expanding its product with 1) Melon, our browser-based streaming studio, 2) Willow, an all-in-one bio link tool, 3) Oslo, a video review and collaboration tool. And 4) Crossclip, the easiest way to convert Twitch clips to videos for TikTok, Instagram Reels, and YouTube Shorts.
