If you want to get more views for your Twitch
streams, you must remember that everyone else wants the same thing and it isn’t
Unfortunately, your channel is likely to fail
if you don’t have subscribers and views. So, you must find a way to stand out.
The tips below will help you stream games like the pros. You might view them as
simple, but they have been designed to help you establish your channel’s
You don’t need to tackle all of them at once.
However, if you start to improve your streaming today, you will end up with a
solid following and high-quality channel within the shortest time possible even
if you are not streaming esports.
1. Promoting Your Stream
It is always possible for people to come
across your channel while they are browsing Twitch, but you will have better
luck if you promote you stream elsewhere. Streamers usually post links on their
Still, you can promote your stream elsewhere,
such as on relevant Facebook groups, Instagram, subreddits (if allowed), game
forums, and your own Facebook feed. Anywhere you interact with people that
could be interested in your stream is an excellent place to promote. Just
ensure that where you choose to promote does not have self-promotion
2. Getting Others to Host Your Content
On Twitch, hosting refers to showing somebody
else’s content on your stream. You can get in front of a lot more people if
your content is hosted by a streamer with more followers. You will get more
subscribers and followers if your stream is good. You can also grow your twitch
if you buy Twitch followers.
How can you get others to hold your content?
Your friends could be willing to do it on a whim, which is why you need to let
them know that you would like it if they would host your content. Hosting other
people’s content on your channel is another excellent option. If somebody sees
that you are a big fan, they might just consider sharing your stream.
Keep in mind that the biggest streamers are
unlikely to host your content. So, you may consider aiming lower. Streamers
with slightly more viewers than you can be a good place to start. Don’t forget
that you must offer some value. Give a shout out on your show or make the
hosting an exchange.
3. Getting Involved with Other Streamers
You are likely to be successful faster on
Twitch if you have the right connections. So, start networking. Networking on Twitch is comparable
to social media networking. You will need to post amazing content, but also
seek out great content that you can comment and spark conversations around.
Get involved in other streamers’ chats and
share their posts on social media. Engage them in conversations, discuss your
plays with them, and give them shout outs on the air, and comment on their
posts. However, the important thing is always to provide value. If you don’t
offer something useful, you will look like a sycophant.
4. Proper Game Selection
Hearthstone, League of Legends, Fortnite,
Heroes of the Storm, Dota 2, and PUBG are some of the most popular games on the
platform. If you were to stream such games, you would likely face a lot of
strong competition, which means that they might not be the most suitable games
Attempting to build an audience on Twitch
might feel like hosting a part that you forgot to send out invitations for. If
you would like to boost your traffic, you need to consider these questions when
choosing a game.
If you choose a game that’s less popular but
with a strong following such as Magic: The Gathering or H1Z1, you can carve out
a niche for yourself. You will quickly get dedicated fans that love the games
you play but are unable to find many other streaming options.
If you think you have something new to offer
or are really good at a popular game, you are always free to stream some of the
bigger titles. You can also theme your channel; always streaming PS3 games or
games about animals or puzzle games is likely to attract a specific kind of
viewer that you know will engage with your content. You will gain fans if your
theme is interesting enough to people.
5. Stream on a Regular Schedule
If you stream at different times on different
days of the week, you will find it hard to gain regular viewers. Sticking with
planned hours tends to add predictability and allows you to get in touch with
the same audience. You are always free to add spots or even skip out on
streaming for several days, but you will want to be predictable when building
up your following from zero.
You should also stream a lot when starting
out. It is the best way to get people in the habit of watching your streams.
You can also set up automatic hosting to ensure that something is always
playing on your stream even when you are not streaming.
