In this guide we will discuss about the best ways, tools and tips, which will help you to grow your twitch channel. So, let’s start the guide.
This is the most important part, you must keep in your mind, before trying to grow your twitch account. Streaming once is not enough.
If you want your viewers get involved with your channel. You need to stream regularly and show that you are interested and enjoying your work too.
It is good idea to stream for 4 to 6 hours per day. Try to keep the international timing in your mind and stream 2 hours in the morning and two to three hours in the evening. This schedule will cover a lot of followers all around the world. However, you can keep Sundays for editing all the stuff for your channel.
Set your Target
Try to make your stream overlay more interesting and colorful, by adding Useful information and themes. For this purpose, player.me is the website which can help you out to make your stream overlays more interesting for the viewers. It offers many kinds of free overlays which can be used to enhance the stream look rather than a simple web camera view, which may let your viewers bore and left the channel.
There is an overlap that shows the number of followers and this overlay has proved to be very successful in increasing your followers, because you are watching the number of followers in real time and you can set and achieve your goals according to the length of the video and corresponding number of followers.
Setting number of views to achieve as a goal and displaying them in your streams will naturally attract viewers towards you and help you out to reach your goal.
Play Famous Games
I would like to start this section with an example. If you are given a choice to watch one game out of 2 and these are; Fortnite and Farming Simulator 17, then which game you will like to watch as a viewer? Probably Fortnite, but this does not mean that Farming Simulator 17 is not an interesting game to play. But the actual reason behind is that, Farming Simulator 17 is not as much famous as the fortnite is.
So, you must search about the popular games and stream that games on your channel. There is a lot of competition already on twitch, so, if you are a beginner, this is very important for you to stand at least equal to the competition.
For this purpose, try to play the games like leagues of Legends.
There is also show included with this action, and that is catchy title which can grab the attention of the followers. So, always give your streams a good and attractive title and keep on experimenting techniques like that.
Another way is to be unique in the world. Play the games which are unique and no one plays usually on twitch.

Never miss a chance to reply to the comments of the followers and also give answer to their queries.
Also put some questions in the conservations to keep it alive. For example, you can ask, “what are you doing all the day”, “how has there been”, and “what are there suggestions on the game you are streaming”.
