In order to grow on the Twitch platform, you need to give people a reason to join your Twitch streams, and once they do you want them to come a second time. It might seem quite difficult for SOME people but there are ways you can hack this process.
That said, here are some tips that you can follow.
Have An Appealing Twitch Channel
For you to have an appealing twitch stream you need an appealing twitch channel. That includes having a logo, banner, and twitch panels that are captivating. No matter what you are streaming on, you ought to have a microphone. Your microphone needs to be well functioning. This is to avoid glitching and broken speech. As far as webcam goes you can use any webcam you want be it pc, Xbox, or a ps4 cam.
Always Be Interactive
You as the twitch streamer you want to catch the attention of the people viewing your stream. It is a buzzkill to watch a video without sound, the same applies to your stream. Always be talking. The talk can be on matters concerning the game you are playing or what has happened to you recently. A great benefit that comes with talking is that a conversation with your views will always be part of your channel in the chats. Remember to read your chats and respond to them.
Use Social Media
You might have great content with the best quality streams but that’s not all. What you most certainly need is to put yourself out there. There are a number of social media pages that you can use to showcase what you are doing on your channel. Post a snippet of your stream on youtube, Twitter, and Instagram, that way you are guaranteed to get more viewers joining your stream. Putting in the extra work will give you an up hand in getting discovered easily. A point to remember, the posting on these pages should be done regularly.
Don’t Stream For Zero Viewers
A twitch stream with zero views is always placed at the bottom of the list and in most cases, no one wants to join such a stream. What one can do is simple, buy Twitch viewers. Buying views will boost the visibility of your stream within the ranks and add a sense of credibility to the table. You will notice more people start joining your stream.
Try and pick a game that is less saturated when it comes to streams. You might be tempted to start a stream on a game that is very popular but chances are you will struggle to find views and also go up in the ranks. A good thing about streaming a less saturated game is that you will most definitely be at a top-ranking with a handful of views. So when the viewer clicks on the game you are most likely to be at the top of the list where they can easily join your stream. The game you pick should also be a game you like. This is to ensure that the views will not be bored by you struggling to play a game you are not comfortable with.
