6 Tips to Grow Your Twitch Stream Via TikTokMay 23, 2022
While there are many channels and strategies at which you can grow your Twitch's presence, not many can match the effectiveness of TikTok. Many individuals have found that TikTok serves as an excellent platform to reach out to plenty of viewers, and with how TikTok works, it can be used to divert the audience there towards the Twitch streaming platform.
That said, if you are looking to use TikTok to grow your Twitch efforts, here's what you need to do:
Pick Content to Share on TikTok
First of all, you need to ensure that the content you are picking to share on TikTok is relevant to the Twitch platform. It's best to focus on what your Twitch channel is about, and related themes. For example, a Dead Bby Daylight streamer might highlight funny or clutch moments, or do some skits as survivors or killers from the game.
Name Your Account
Next, you need to give your TikTok account a name relevant to the content you are sharing, which can also help you increase awareness about your Twitch channel. Ensure that your TikTok username is easily recognisable and will also help you reach the people you want to attract. If you can, use the same name in TikTok and Twitch to be easily recognised.
Create a Dedicated Channel for Twitch
By now, you should already have a Twitch account set up. If you haven't yet, you need to set up a dedicated channel for Twitch on TikTok. You can do that by creating a channel on TikTok, uploading some videos from your Twitch account, and then sharing them on TikTok's website and app.
Engage with Viewers and Build Relationships
An essential step in leveraging TikTok to grow your Twitch presence is engaging with viewers and building relationships. You can do that by interacting with other TikTok users and promoting your Twitch channel to them. By helping each other, you will be able to forge stronger ties.
Encourage Cross-Channel Interaction
Encourage cross-channel interaction between your Twitch channel and your TikTok account by asking viewers to follow your TikTok channel if they want to get more of the content that you share. Doing so will help grow both of the channels, so try to bring your viewers over whenever possible.
Promote Your Twitch Stream
Promote your live streaming content on your TikTok profile by adding a small Twitch icon on your profile, and link the Twitch channel you are promoting to a small video on TikTok about your stream. In the video, you can promote your Twitch channel or stream by urging viewers to check out what you offer and encourage them to follow you on Twitch.
