Streaming on Twitch as a beginner can feel like a difficult and scary task. Online gaming should be a fun experience. How can you have fun and grow your Twitch channel? 

Going from a beginner to a successful Twitch streamer is a journey. You will need the correct equipment, a schedule, and interaction with your fans to help your stream grow. 

Below we will look at some tips to help you become a successful Twitch streamer. 

Equipment

It doesn’t take the latest and greatest equipment to become a Twitch streamer. People will tune in and watch if your camera is not the best, but you will need a good microphone. If you are setting up or just starting on your channel, pay attention to the sound quality and choose a microphone that will allow your fans to hear you. 

Personality 

It may be uncomfortable to be in front of a camera when you start out but you should let your personality shine. The more comfortable you are on camera the better your viewers will respond to you. There will always be some negativity. Don’t let it stop you from showing your true personality.

Find your Niche

Finding your place will be important to grow your channel. You don’t need to stream any unusual games to be successful.  You do need to find and stick with something that will help set you apart from the rest of the community. If you are a pro gamer or just a community streamer, find your place to help your channel grow. 

Multistream 

Multistreaming is broadcasting your channel to multiple platforms at the same time. You can live stream on Twitch, Facebook, and YouTube all at the same time. This will help decide on an option before you settle on a single service. You should try all of them to find out which service you enjoy the most before committing to just one. 

Open a YouTube Channel

Open a YouTube to help people discover and grow your Twitch channel. Many successful Twitch streamers have used a YouTube channel to help promote their Twitch stream. 

Scheduling

Setting a reliable schedule will also allow people to return to your channel. If you are always streaming at random times it may be hard for your channel to find a loyal following and continue to grow. You will need to set and stick to a schedule to allow fans to tune in when you are broadcasting. 

Fan Interaction

Get to know the viewers that are on your streams. Interacting with your viewers is a great way to help build a community and fan base on your Twitch streams. 

Perseverance

Most successful Twitch channels aren’t created overnight and will take time to grow. Enjoy your time streaming and interacting with your fans. Don’t become discouraged and quit your channel if you aren’t successful immediately. 

Conclusion 

Displaying your personality, finding your spot in the community, and interacting with your fans will help grow your Twitch stream. It just may not happen overnight.
