When you finally get to do what you love – and get paid for it – you will have achieved the dream that many others have yet to reach. Since you are still reading this, you’re probably still on your way there.
Most dreams involve plenty of hard work and effort. However, if you work through and keep your goals in mind, there’s no reason that you can’t make that dream become a reality!
One of the biggest dreams for many people is to make it big on Twitch – one of the most popular streaming platforms today. They want to do what they love, streaming it to other people while getting paid to do so. While there are various income sources on Twitch, such as ads and sponsorships, one of the biggest sources from such a platform comes from subscribers.
If you are hunting for more subs, then you are in the right place. Keep reading to learn exactly what you need to do to get more subscribers!
1. Set goals
Before you start achieving goals, you must actually set goals to reach. Always ask yourself, “What do I want from streaming here?” This simple question is quite tough to answer, so do not be afraid to take your time to think about it. Once you can come up with an answer, you can formulate a strategy to help you achieve this.
Keep in mind that if your goal is a big one, you must set smaller ones that lead to it. This allows you to feel a sense of accomplishment, and each achievement takes you a step closer to your dreams.
2. Stream a lot
You will not get subscribers if you do not stream. For that reason, schedule your days to have plenty of streaming sessions. Try your best to stick to that schedule so that interested viewers will know when to expect more of you. If you are new to streaming, a good start is to stream at least once a week and go from there.
Of course, you cannot be online every hour of every day. There will be times where you are too busy to stream. To ensure that you can still reach out even when you are offline, make sure your schedule is available. Twitch recently integrated a function to introduce yourself with a video when someone stumbles on your stream, so make sure to upload one!
3. Promote your channel
If you stick to Twitch alone, growing can be quite tough. This is because you are competing with thousands of other streamers, who are all also trying to capture the attention of an audience.
To overcome this problem, promote your channel on other platforms, especially social media. Set up Twitter, IG, or any other platform that you are comfortable with. Use those platforms to interact with your audience and even announce your streaming schedule. The more you are active online, the higher the likelihood that people will visit your stream!
There is a long list of things you can do to grow your stream and increase your subscriber count, from investing in good quality equipment to maintaining good communication with your chat. Regardless, they are not a guarantee for success.
The best microphone in the world won’t necessarily gain you a million subscribers overnight. However, consistent effort poured into your passion will, over time, increase your Twitch presence and help you present yourself in the best way possible to make an excellent first impression. This allows you to maintain communication with viewers, getting to know them as they develop an interest in your content and finally decide to subscribe for more!
