Throughout this blog, I’ve said –
Do this, Do that…
Where’s the f***ing solution (logical one, obviously)?
How can gaming streamers rank their videos on Twitch TV?
There’s a proven way – A Checklist.
To be precise, I’ve named it a Twitch TV streaming checklist.
Implement these suggestions on your Twitch channel,
And see the result yourself.
Now, let’s get to the main part –
Twitch TV Checklist for Newbie Streamers
Define your Goal
That’s the critical part.
“A man without a goal is like a ship without a rudder,” Thomas Carlyle
So, before starting your streaming career, make sure,
You’ve defined the goal.
What do you want to achieve in how much time?
Identify your style
Now the next question you need to ask yourself is –
What type of gaming streamer do you want to be?
One game expert or variety games streamer or Professional Gamers?
Each of them has its sets of pros. & cons.
So, take your time & choose wisely.
“First impression is the last impression.“
Keep this in mind.
This way, you can get an edge over others.
To get a detailed look into this, you can check this video by CreoVox –
In an easy & detailed way, he has explained how you can customize your twitch channel.
Find the Right Time to Stream
Once you figured out the type of streamer you want to be,
It’s time for you to find the right time to stream. Look at the image attached below –
You see, as per the stats reported by Twitch Tracker, peak time reaches around 20:30 GMT.
And from then, viewership starts to decline.
Finally, at around, 07:30 GMT it hits bottom.
Here, I would suggest you change the timing here and there to what works best for you.
P.S., BTW, avoid the sudden peak of June 11. That’s only because of the official PS5 release by Sony.
Stick to a schedule
Once you know the right time,
Stick to it. Go live only around that time.
Make it a schedule. Don’t miss a single day.
No matter what it is.
You can make highlight videos of the stream & use them as a contingency for a missed stream.
Choosing the Right Games
That’s the most crucial part.
To find the right game, you must ask yourself these questions –
Do I enjoy this game?
Does this game excite me or make me curious?
How’s the competition?
If a particular game checks all these questions, then you can start with that game.
However, if you ask me,
If you’re looking for a way to increase your followers rapidly on Twitch TV,
Collaboration with big streamers is what you need.
Thousands of viewers watching you ”LIVE”. Imagine how much exposure you can get.
Now, the question is how to approach big streamers?
Here’s an 11-minute video that’ll guide you ahead –
Pro tip: –
Don’t get nervous when thousands are watching you ”LIVE”.
Be yourself & impress the audience with your showcasing your points.
Today in 2020, the best way to get in touch with your audience is Discord App.
And invite your followers to it.
That’s it. You’re good to go.
Now, watch this short video before going ahead –
Once the integration is complete, you are all set to interact with your audience.
Do a voice chat with them or run a promotional giveaway.
There’s a lot more for you in the Discord App.
Everyone knows about this, but only handfuls of users do something to optimize their mic.
On platforms like Twitch, you need to look professional.
And optimizing the mic for the streaming platform is one step forward in the right direction.
Setting up Filters, Levels is basic. Check out this video –
See how easy it is to configure Advanced Mic Settings for OBS Studio.
Discord Voice Changer
Once advanced mic customization is complete, it’s time for you to add the fun element in your stream.
A discord voice changer is quite a useful tool if you want to change your voice to something funnier.
It can be a Robot filter, helium filter, or 100’s’s more. The choice is yours.
To know more about it, do check out my other post on Discord Voice Changer.
Here I’ve added 175+ voice changer effects.
Assume you’re watching a stream on Twitch TV,
And all of a sudden, streamers video quality deteriorates.
That doesn’t look good, right?
So, what’s the solution
Twitch Inspector Tools
Playing & streaming games can get tough when you encounter serious issues with the broadcast.
For your help, there’s a tool called Twitch Inspector Tool.
Instead of manually looking for ongoing broadcast issues, it helps automate the diagnose process.
Be it dropped frames, bitrate issue, or lag.
Whatever it is, Twitch Inspector Tool will tell you the right reason with a proper fix.
Catchy Stream Titles
Benjamin Franklin once said,
“Honesty is the Best Policy”
Today in 2020, when it comes to streaming, it’s’s solely relevant.
You see, I’ve seen many streamers use misleading stream titles to pull a live audience.
But that’s wrong.
Honest stream titles with a pinch of creativity work anything like wonders.
There’s a lot of things you can do to the title without deceiving the audience. Here’s all you can do –
- Use anger, fear, or excitement as an emotion to attract the audience to your stream.
- Use emoji that sets you apart from a large pool of streamers.
- Try to use inside jokes.
Here are some examples of impressive Twitch Titles –
“I almost peed in my pants” instead of “Playing Amnesia: The Dark Descent.”
Twitch TV Optimization
Today when there’s quite high competition on Twitch TV,
It gets a bit hard for a newbie to leave a mark.
To make sure you do not miss out on this part,
Twitch tv allows you to control the thumbnail, title, gaming category, language, tags & description.
If you’re a growing twitch streamer, then it’s super crucial for you to include all the things I said earlier.
Now the question is how you would do it? It’s’s quite easy.
Supposing you’re playing RPG game Lost Odyssey.
Set it as your primary keyword.
Later add it at the beginning of Video Title, Video Description & Tags.
Remember, “To stay ahead of the Race, you got to Adapt.”
Using royalty-free music is an excellent addition to a video or clip.
It can save you from using copyright music in your videos.
Manually setting up for an online stream is a hectic task.
To make it easier for you, we have streaming clients like OBS Studio, Streamlabs OBS & many.
Once installed on your PC, they will do every tedious task for you.
Instead of doing everything, it will configure recommended settings based on your internet speed & computer hardware.
BTW, in my case, I used OBS Studio.
Now, we’re close to an end.
Throughout the post of recommended you to do ”this,” or ”that.”
However, none of this matters.
Yeah! I repeat, none of this matter, until or unless you interact with your audience.
Even if only 3-4 viewers are watching, you got to interact with them.
Many people join Twitch TV to make new friends.
Make them feel like they part of your Twitch tv family.
Use Bots, give Shoutouts, Whispers,
Do whatever you can, give your best in interacting with them.
This way, even your followers can contribute to your channel growth.
That’s all for now.
I guess this post would help & motivate a newbie streamer to start his/her streaming channel.
