Stream as much as you can. Post your content across platforms. Go to conventions. There’s a lot of advice floating around the Twitchsphere on how to become the next [insert your favorite streamer’s name here]. This article breaks down some top pieces of advice and shows you how Crossclip can help get more eyeballs on your stream.
Talk to Yourself
It's exhausting to spend hours streaming to no one. It’s also necessary. It takes time to become comfortable speaking on camera in a quiet room. It takes time to learn how to be constantly entertaining, how to talk about your gameplay and strategy in a captivating way, or better yet, how to talk about yourself. To be a successful streamer you need to practice streaming, and unfortunately for most people that means streaming to nobody when you’re early on in your career. It’s a necessary evil, and chances are, you’ll have to do it. Assume you’re the rule, not the exception.
Look Beyond Twitch
People get confused when they think that constantly streaming on Twitch will help them grow their channel. Except in a small number of cases, it won't. In other words, even if you stream eight hours a day, seven days a week, viewers won't flock to your channel on Twitch. I'm going to say it again because it's important to understand. For your channel to grow, you must look beyond Twitch.
The reason why is simple. Discoverability on TikTok, YouTube, and Instagram is better than on Twitch. That is where people need to see your content. You need them to see clips of you repeatedly, and then it's up to you to get those viewers to your Twitch channel. And, once they land on your channel, it’s your job to keep them interested (enter hours of streaming to nobody and learning how to entertain).
Create Content for Other Platforms
That's all well and good, but the reality is that creating content for other platforms takes time and effort. Time could have been spent streaming, learning, and live streaming for other viewers who stumble across your channel. Video editing is not a simple task. Or, at least, it wasn't.
Enter Crossclip, the best Twitch clip converter available. With Crossclip, you don’t need to compromise between streaming and getting your videos out into the world. Crossclip allows you to take horizontal gameplay footage, edit it, optimize it for other formats like TikTok, YouTube Shorts, and Instagram Reels, and then share it directly from the mobile app to those platforms. Drop-in your Twitch clip, upload a video, arrange the content boxes, and compile your way to more views.
