Posts Tagged ‘viewers’
Many people that are new to Twitch get one or two viewers in their initial streams and often sit for hours with zero viewers. Naturally this can cause a lot of frustration and make them question their decision of becoming a Twitch streamer. If you’re wondering how to get your first 20 viewers on Twitch, we’ve put together a list of things you can do right now to edge closer to those first 20 viewers!
Just get more exposure
No surprise here, exposure is the key to any online traffic. When you are focusing on getting you your first 20 viewers, you need a plan to introduce your stream to viewers and the best way to do that is through social media and forums. A great benefit to using social media is that you can grow your social accounts when your not at your computer via your mobile phone. Don’t forget to announce the fact that your going live on your social media accounts.
Watch your own stream
Some people would call this cheating but this tactic can get you 2–3 viewers. You can use mobile devices to watch your own stream. Remember for every viewer you have you appear higher up the Twitch category page, the higher you are the more viewers you get. Just make sure that you have enough bandwidth and don’t negatively effect your streams performance.
Pick the right games
If you don’t have a strong social media presence or YouTube subscriber count, it’s going to be pretty hard to get viewers if your playing a popular game like CS:GO or LoL. Rather than going for a game that already has been streamed by multiple Twitch users go for less famous games, new releases or games made by indie developers to stand out from the masses which can prove extremely beneficial when you’re trying to get your first 20 viewers on Twitch.
Take advantage of big streamers streaming unpopular games
Continuing on from the last point, sometimes you might see a category with 3500 viewers and inside that category discover that there is only a few streamers and 3495 viewers are watching the same well known streamer. If you own that game and can jump on it quickly you can pick up some of the overflow traffic in that category.
The higher the quality the more the viewers. No one wants to watch a streamer that has low video quality, sound filled with static and no overlay. If you want viewers to actually watch your streams and return every time you stream then you need to make sure that the video quality is clear, the sound is easy to hear and your stream actually has a decent overlay.
The most important thing you need to keep in mind is that you should be having fun! People can easily tell when a Twitch streamer is faking their excitement, scares or enthusiasm. People don’t want to watch you try to be funny, they want to watch you have fun playing a game, so that they can have fun too.
Reach out to others
If you’ve just launched your Twitch channel don’t have high expectations of getting hundreds or thousands of views on your first few streams. You can take part in shout-out events that more popular and bigger Twitch users hold but it’s like winning a lottery. Rather than focusing on bigger streamers focus on smaller Twitch streamers and try to get into their network. They are much more likely to give you a shout out which can result in you easily getting your first 20+ views on Twitch by being hosted by them which will helping you advance your Twitch career.
FollowTrain.tv was purposely built for new streamers to help them get a foot on the ladder, to help get an extra 10 or 20 viewers and to increase your streams exposure. Next time you stream ride the Follow Train at http://www.followtrain.tv to date it’s generated over 1,000,000 views for its users and over 70,000 follows.
Stream Regularly and have a schedule
Your favorite TV show is at the same time on the same day every week which allows people who are free at that time to tune in and enjoy the show. The same is true for Twitch streamers. I also understand that not every one can commit to a regular stream but even if it is just 2 hours per week of scheduled streaming time it will really help your channel create regular viewers.
The Final Word!
Focus on slowly growing rather than stressing about how to get more viewers. Try different things and find something that works for you and then do more of that and enjoy yourself rather than doing it only for the viewers. Follow these simple tips and you’ll surely start getting 20 or more viewers on your Twitch stream in no time.
I am going to go out on a limb here and make a bold prediction, I think that The Division will be one of the most popular games on Twitch in 2016.
I love the idea of games like DayZ, Ark and H1Z1 but all three titles have left me disappointed. Now I am left constantly searching for a new title which fills a similar idea and I hope that The Division with the second expansion pack “Survival” will bring some elements of survival to the game. That’s one of the reasons why I pre-purchased The Division before it’s release date with all of the DLC packs included, fingers crossed my hopes will be realised later this year.
So let’s look at the reasons why I think The Division will be one of the most popular games on Twitch in 2016.
1. It’s an MMO, kinda…
Sure, The Division isn’t really listed as being an MMO by Ubisoft but the game is pretty much an MMO. The Division allows for many players to be in the same instance as they explore and fight for survival in New York City. It may be a shooter style based game but it certainly has MMO style elements, even if there’s not hundreds of players in the same instance.
The Dark Zone currently allows up to 24 players in a single instance and players can form clans with each other. Clans or guilds are typical of MMO’s and rumours suggest that they may add official clan support in game, but nothing has been confirmed yet. You can still find people to play with easily and join a Division clan here: http://divisionclans.com/clan/listing
There is a character progression system, a large number of players in a single instance, NPCs to grind in and out of the the Dark Zone, a PvP area, the ability to play as a clan and a large world to explore. Sounds a lot like an MMO to me. All of the above means people will invest many hours into this game.
2. More content is on the way
Ubisoft has already announced some of their expansion plans for The Division. With free updates adding more game content and features and also paid expansion packs coming later in the year. Plus many people have already pre-purchased these expansion packs, myself included. I expect that the new expansions will also allow players to continue to level up their characters allowing players to have a charter more powerful than the current max level of 30. The names of the first three major expansion packs for the game have been revealed along with some very limited details about them:
Expansion I: Underground (June 2016)
In the first major purchasable expansion Ubisoft will be adding a new territory to the game where squads of four players can explore and complete missions in a huge underground network of tunnels under New York City. Players will be going up against brand new NPC characters, grabbing new loot items and continuing the campaign story mode.
Expansion II: Survival (Summer 2016)
I really really hope this expansion will bring some survival elements from games like DayZ and H1Z1 into The Division. Not much information has been released yet. People are speculating all kinds of ideas. The Division website says:
“Available this summer, this expansion will challenge players to survive as long as possible by gathering essential supplies in a very hostile environment.”
Expansion III: Last Stand (Winter 2016)
Again not much is known about this update, people are claiming zombies will be added to the game probably because of the following sentence found in the official trailer:
“A new threat is rising in the third expansion Last Stand. You and your squad must prepare to defend against a relentless foe.”
The game already has that zombie apocalypse feel and the artwork contains a skull as the face of The Statue of Liberty which makes people belive that the iconic statue may appear in a new playable area of the game. It’s many months away and only time will tell.
Smaller free DLC updates
Smaller free DLC updates will be released throughout the games lifespan to enhance the campaign mode and also the PvP Dark Zone area. The next free update will be coming out on the 12th of April which will add new features such as loot trading.
3. It is like Destiny but better
Destiny was one of the most played and viewed games last year on Twitch placing it in the top 10. Destiny is an unrealistic first person shooter set in the future where the last humans fight to protect the dwindling human population; it allows for clans to work together in the campaign mode and go to war in the PvP zones, you level up your character and find rare loot. Sounds a lot like The Division, right?
The Division meanwhile is set in a gritty, realistic world in the aftermath of a devastating plague which has wiped out the majority of New York City. The world is dark and provides a level of realism most shooter fans will recognise however unlike Destiny, The Division is a third person shooter where as Destiny is a first person shooter.
Between the two of them, in my opinion The Division has the stronger PvP area which is organic, evolving and tense. Players are forced to make uncertain alliances with other players to survive against the powerful NPC characters or to counter attacks from other enemy players. This is much like the Battle Royal mode (Now called H1Z1: King of the Kill) found in H1Z1 which was another top 10 game on Twitch last year.
The Division has a lot of potential for streamers; the PvP area will evolve constantly and in my opinion the differences between this and and Destiny will give it a small edge.
4. Its really well made and polished
The Division looks fantastic, there is no doubt about it. The streets of New York City are an almost exact replica of the real city. It’s a dark and gritty world mixed in with the bright lights of Christmas themed decorations which were still left in place after the plague hit the city.
There are plenty of options to look at and experiment with to get a decent level of performance vs perfect graphics for enjoying the environment and it will run on most modern computers; streaming can be CPU intensive so it’s a must for streamers to get good performance when streaming.
Besides the amazing graphics, the game runs smoothly with few bugs and great gameplay flow. The controls for the game work well and the response from the input is extremely fast which is great for those looking to play it ‘seriously’ with their squad. It feels great, it looks great and the game play is fun which leads me on to my next point.
5. The Dark Zone is fun
There’s a lot of features in The Division to try out, utilize and explore with to make you stronger as a solo player in the campaign and provides an edge in the Dark Zone. Players can pick up strong items in the campaign solo world and there are rare items which can be found in the Dark Zone.
Items in the Dark Zone are contaminated and have to be extracted before the player can actually use them; once the item is extracted it’s then safe for the player to die, if they die before the items are extracted then any contaminated items will be dropped. They need to be extracted at extraction zones in the Dark Zone, naturally there could be players there looking to kill other players and steal their loot before they extract it so they can have it for themselves.
The Division uses a proximity voice chat and text chat system which makes the Dark Zone even more tense; players can communicate with each other without needing to accept a friends request for voice chat. It makes the Dark Zone incredibly tense when using a microphone and a lot more entertaining as teams need to sometimes avoid communication altogether or risk being overheard by the enemy.
6. Its on all the major platforms
The Divisions is easy to access. Players can buy versions for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One or for the PC which all have streaming capabilities with or without additional hardware. It does force players to use the Ubisoft game platform Uplay, which is not well loved by gamers but at least it provides achievements and special game-based rewards. Some games are not big on Twitch simply because they are not on all the major platforms so they are unable to complete with games that are.
7. The Division had the biggest first week ever for a new game franchise
That’s right! The Division launch smashed it and not only is it Ubisoft’s best-selling game straight out of the gate but it also had the biggest first week ever for a new game franchise and generated over $330 million globally in its first five days. The game was reported to of have 1.2 million peak concurrent users over the first weekend, and over 100 million hours played in the first week. These kind of numbers begin to give you an idea of how many people enjoyed the beta and wanted to jump straight into the initial release.
The Final Word!
The Division has been in the top 10 games since it was released at the start of March. It’s still highly popular right now for both streamers and viewers; with the upcoming new content which will be released throughout the year, it looks like The Division should stay in the top 10 most watched games for quite some time. People will invest any hours in to the game and I think it will replace similar older titles such as Destiny to become one of the most watched games on Twitch in 2016.
Your probably wondering “What are the most popular games on Twitch?”, Well I have the definitive answer for you! You can easily see what the most popular games are on Twitch at at given moment. You simply visit the main games page and you will see in real time what games are currently the most popular. But this only shows you a small snippet of the story and often when a game is new lots of people will be playing it!
At the end of each Year Twitch release a retrospective and for the purpose of this article I feel this is the best place to check for the real data on such a question. Below is a list of the 10 most popular games on Twitch for the entire year of 2015. The list is in order and represents the games which streamed the most minutes on the platform. Without further hesitation lets get in to the list!
1. League of Legends
League of Legends (LoL) is an online battle arena game that takes place in real-time. League is one of the world’s largest esports games and was developed by Riot Games. As of 2014, the game had 67 million monthly players and over 27 million daily players. At any given time, upwards of 7.5 million people are playing at once. A standard game consists of two teams of 5 champions competing to destroy the other team’s nexus while leveling up in an RPG style. The action is fast, furious and intense making this the perfect spectator eSport. League of Legeds wins the number one spot on the most popular games on Twitch list.
2. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO)
Next up another massive eSports game that needs no introduction. CS:GO is the 4th iteration in the Counter-Strike series. It is a 5 on 5 team-based online FPS (first-person shooter) game that takes place in real-time. Rated mature, this game pits terrorists (Ts) versus counter-terrorists (CTs) in a realistic shootout involving various options for gameplay. Typically you will see people playing in a game that will last around 90 minutes where the first team to get 16 rounds will take the victory. A friend of mine once said that “CS:GO was the best $7 he ever spent!” and I really cant argue with that. It draws in thousands of viewers on Twitch every single day and shows no sign of going away soon.
3. Dota 2
Dota 2 is another battle style arena game involving multiple combatants in real-time play and in many ways is similar to League of Legends. Developed by the Valve Corporation the same company that made CS:GO, Dota 2 is free-to-play and boasts over 1 million simultaneous users. Characters have unique abilities and scale during each battle — collecting gold, experience, and items throughout the game. In 2015 a prize pool of $18 million at the game’s main annual tournament set an all-time high for the eSports scene and remains one of the most likely ways to make money from gaming online.
4. Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft
Next up we have Hearthstone the card-based strategy game developed by Blizzard Entertainment. Head-to-head Arena play allows players to face off against each other using pre selected decks of cards. There are now more than 40 million Hearthstone players around the globe. Ranked battles allow players to gain monthly prizes and strive to become legendary ranked. The top 100 legendary ranked players at the end of each month receive world championship points (WCPs) that can help them to qualify for the annual championship competition. The game is free but t allows users to purchase card packs in order to rapidly increase players card collections for developing gameplay decks. Single player modes can also be unlocked to help players earn cards that are not available in some of the purchasable packs. Again I think one of the things that draws viewers on with this game is the high level of competition involved.
Minecraft allows users to build and create in a 3D block environment. Players explore the world they are helping to create, they gather resources, craft new tools, and even engage in combat. Various game modes exist that allow players to outlast each other in a multiplayer survival game or enjoy a creative mode which provides unlimited resources for users to design anything they can imagine. An award winning game, Microsoft purchased the intellectual property from Mojang in 2014 for the sum of 2.5 billion USD.
The point of H1Z1 is to survive the zombie apocalypse—a popular theme in modern entertainment. It takes place in a future dystopia where zombies have resulted from a mutated virus called H1Z1. The game is a massively multiplayer game, meaning that all users exist in the same world. Cooperation is encouraged, creating a sense of community among many users. Teamwork and trading are vital aspects of survival when encountering everything from zombies to wild animals. Most people on Twitch play in the Battle Royal mode which is a huge fight to the death and only ends when there is one play left.
Destiny is an FPS (first-person shooter) brought to you by Bungle and Activision, the same guys that made the massively successful Halo series. Destiny is a sci-fi game in which users share a world and team up. There are player-versus-player options besides the team objective modes. The game takes place on a future Earth, ridden with aliens, as well as on various worlds where the player is charged to wipe out the alien nemesis before reinforcements can reach the Earth. The launch of the game in 2014 set retail records with more than half a billion USD in retail sales on the release day.
8. World of Tanks
World of Tanks is a free-to-play online game that takes place in a multiplayer format. There are also premium game features available for a fee. PvP gameplay is the focus, and users compete against each other in various types of tanks. There are more than 400 different kinds, each based on a real type of tank developed during the 20th century. Users can choose their favorite tank from their home country or select a type of tank produced anywhere in the world. This game entered the world of eSports at the 2012 World Cyber Games. This game draws some pretty big numbers on the Twitch platform.
9. World of Warcraft
WoW, World of Warcraft is an MMORPG from Blizzard Entertainment, and is the oldest of today’s favorite games having been released in 1704. The world of WoW takes place four years after the events of Blizzard’s previous iteration of the game, Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne. Six expansions have been released over the past decade. There are more than 5.5 million subscribers, making WoW the world’s top MMORPG. It is also the highest-grossing game in history. A World of Warcraft movie will be released in June of 2016 under the title Warcraft and will no doubt increase interest in the game, adding to the number of players and spectators on Twitch.
10. FIFA 15
FIFA 15 is the ultimate football/soccer simulator. Electronic Arts released the game in 2014, and it received great reviews from game critics. Thanks to the global popularity of football/soccer, this has become the most popular sports game for online play and viewing. Each year, EA releases a new version of the popular game with upgraded AI and updated team rosters, meeting with immediate success from fans of the franchise. No other sports simulation game attains the same eSports attention as FIFA.
The Final Word!
So there we have it the 10 most popular games on Twitch in 2015 according to Twitch! One of the key things that I take away from this list is that each of these games has a huge esports potential they are all massively competitive and have a massive online multiplayer style of play. Each of these games offer something unique that simply draws us to play them which then draws people to watch others play.
I wanted to share what I did over the last few days to capitalize on an opportunity that happens several times a year. If you play a game that has a large e-sports event you may be able to gain some extra followers just by watching Twitch and being part of the event on Twitch. I picked up over 400 followers in the last few days and I didn’t even stream once.
ESL One Cologne 2015 just happened and we saw millions of gamers tune into the event. I mostly play Counter-Strike Global Offensive so I will speak about my experience with that but if you play one of the other big games such as Dota2, Battlefield 4, Hearthstone or League of Legends then there is similar e-sports events which you may be able to capitalize on in a similar way.

Getting seen by over 800,000 Twitch viewers!
The value of being seen by over 800k viewers on Twitch is priceless! But the cost is just $6.99. Warren Buffet arguably one of the greatest investors ever said “Price is what you pay. Value is what you get.” Remember this advice when trying to grow your Twitch channel because some small economic commitments can mean big rewards.
The Counter-Strike event was broadcasted on several official live streams, I subscribed to the Official ESL CSGO Twitch channel during the event. This costs $6.99 for one month. This means that I can speak in the chat room when the room is in subscriber only mode which is the case for all of the games when they are live. During this time there is hundreds of thousands of people watching Twitch and reading the Twitch chat. This is where you can gain some serious exposure, attention and followers.
Don’t get banned!
MODS can be super aggressive especially during live events, be careful what you say and how you behave! Remember that hundreds of thousands of people are watching you and what you type in chat. Don’t be a d*ck, your trying to gain the love and respect of the community. Be helpful towards people and answer questions, you will get some private whispers from people who are not subscribers. At times it can be too much to deal with, you will have alot of people messaging you and some of these people will send you some new follows.
Do not post links, if you do mention “giveaways” or ask people to “follow you” be warned you may get a ban. I had several small bans over the weekend between 60 and 600 seconds. When this happens I just calm down, usually it is because I am over talking and over dominating the chat room.
All the Top Streamers are there!
Another thing you will notice is that all of the top streamers on Twitch will be present at the event, they love the game, they love Twitch and they love to be part of the huge pro events. You are now mixing with the Twitch VIP’s.
On a Subconscious level
Another thing which I think happens and makes a huge difference is some people will say to me “I recognize your name” or “Did we play together recently?”. I think this is because I am present in these large chat room events. My name is being seen and is going into peoples minds on a subconscious level, a few weeks from now they may stumble across my stream and instantly they will think they know me from somewhere or perhaps they even remember me from a large esports event.
Remember to Unsubscribe
A word of warning a Twitch subscription will auto renew, so if you are not interested in running your subscription for several months make sure you unsubscribe during the event or straight after the event or you will get charged $6.99 every single month. You can manage your Twitch subscriptions here.
The Final Word!
I have subscribed to each of the last four major CSGO events and each time I pickup between 100 and 500 new followers. This time round I gained just over 400 Twitch followers. This will work on smaller scale events also where perhaps there is only 40,000 to 100,000 people watching but you will get some followers by simply being part of the event on Twitch and you will be growing your name and presence in the community.
Trust me on this one. There is one sure way for a new streamer to get viewers, regulars and followers. One of the hardest things for any streamer to do is to get the active viewer count up. The easiest way to do this is with a coin bot.
They come with many names, coin bot, token bot, loyalty bot, points bot, reward bot. Essentially they are all the same. A coin bot will sit in your chat room and hand out virtual coins to your viewers. Typically viewers will get rewarded with 1 coin per minute that they view your stream. This causes people to idle in your channel and collect coins, which gives you a higher viewer count and that puts you higher up the Twitch channel page. The higher you are, the more people visit the room and the more followers and viewers you gain. I typically have a minimum of 20 viewers in my channel even on a really quiet day and some of them are even AFK but I simply don’t care because I am higher up on that Twitch channel page which means fresh people are now coming into my chat room. This is how a coin bot works and this is why savvy steamers use them.
Rewarding your regular viewers
There has to be some sort of incentive attached to the collection of coins. If you run giveaways or do something for every x number of followers a coin bot can really help you get those regular viewers to stay in your chat.
No Money for giveaways?
No Problem! You can invent all kinds of ways to reward your regulars. Viewer games, sing them a song, do 10 pushups. I know not every streamer can afford to run giveaways, but giveaways don’t have to be huge amounts of money.
I personally giveaway Counter-Strike Global Offensive skins on my channel worth around 0.35€ for every 15 followers. It doesn’t break the bank. Knowing that I have around 11k followers I have easily spent over 250€ in the last year. This sounds like a huge amount amount of money but it’s really only about 20€ per month and I stream 2-3 times a week. Twitch is my Hobby, I love streaming and 20€ a month for a hobby isn’t too much to spend. I also really enjoy doing the giveaways and it gives my stream a little something extra.
Coin bot crashes – Problems with some coin bots
I have tried 3 different coin bots, I wont mention the others here but I had some issues in the past. One time I was giving away an AK47 Redline and had around 200 active viewers in my chat and my coin bot crashed. It was a nightmare as I had been preparing this giveaway for weeks and in the last minute it all failed. I looked ridiculous.
DeepBot to the rescue!
Continuing from what I said earlier I have had over 450 viewers in my chat at once all interacting with DeepBot and it has never crashed on me once. This is the only coin bot that I have found that can be trusted with large viewer numbers.
DeepBot’s other features
I would struggle to write a blog post about all of DeepBot’s other features, this bot is all singing and dancing. It is constantly being improved and updates are free of charge. Some of it’s other features include: Raffles, Auto Timers, Channel Commands, Viewer Games, Voting, Bankheist, Music, Mini Games, Gambling, User Administration, Drag Race the list goes on and on…
I don’t think a single other bot has a feature which doesn’t come included in DeepBot. If your using multiple bots it’s time to switch. DeepBot does it all. Deepbot is the best Twitch bot.
The Final Word!
DeepBot is currently in the beta stage and to get it set up and running you will have to donate $10. But this is a small price to pay for such a great Twitch bot. If your looking to get higher viewer counts then I really think you should invest in DeepBot today.
Being a good streamer is not always just about being really awesome at a certain game. In my opinion I think what attracts people is your engagement with them.
Many of us probably agree and have read previously that certain things can help your stream like interacting with viewers. Also other things like having the Twitch chat visible in stream or having a follower alert where the users name pops up on screen. The reason these ideas work is because they are creating user engagement, the more you engage your viewers the more often they will come back to your stream.
Introducing Reduced Stream Delay
On the 14th of May 2015 Twitch announced that all broadcasters will now have the ability to reduce the stream delay when broadcasting on Twitch. This means that the time between you speaking and the time that your viewers hear you will be lower. This is great for user engagement. Twitch state that enabling the feature will reduce the delay by approximately 33% on average.
This basically means better user engagement, sometimes people will not hang about for an answer, they will be bored and they will simply leave your stream. In theory you can respond to your viewers in almost real-time now.
You can enable this option at any time, but it must be turned on prior to the start of your broadcast to take effect. You can turn this feature on here: http://www.twitch.tv/settings/channel
The Final Word!
I think that the reduced stream delay option is a great feature to increase user engagement, but if you’re worried about being stream sniped in games like CS:GO you should leave this feature turned off. Because Twitch have stated that the reduced delay option does come at a small quality of service cost – particularly to viewers with poor internet connections. If you’re manually adding a delay of 20-30 seconds to your broadcast to stop people stream sniping, it is not worth enabling the reduced delay feature.
I am sure you are already using FollowTrainTV but still you are looking for even more Twitch growth, well Twitchstarter is an online community that can help you gain extra viewers and followers. Gamers of all ages and disciplines from professional gamers to people who just found out what an Xbox One is use Twitchstarter. They have many great articles and information which can help you become a better streamer. They have a bunch of cool tools, websites, forums and blogs. It’s really a go to network for Twitch streamers and gamers in general!
I have been using the Twitchstarter service now for several months. I have been a premium member, I have paid for banner adverts with them and I have used some of the free tools they have to offer.
If it suits your budget I would recommend trying everything you can, the thing about streaming is something may work for you even if it didn’t work for someone else and vice versa. You have to simply try things and see what works. I also have a bunch of Fiverr gigs that can generate you a lot of followers on Twitch. Check out some of my customer reviews, I am very proud to say I have many happy customers!
How can you get 300 extra Twitch followers every single month for free?
This is easy peasy and it just takes 5 minutes per day. There is a tool on Twitchstarter called ‘Followers Club’ this is a follow for follow exchange system. This means you will follow 10 new people per day and in return you will receive 10 new followers. This is almost guaranteed that you can get 300 extra Twitch followers every single month. You just have to dedicate 5 minutes of each day because there is a maximum of 10 new followers per day.
Visit the Follower Club here: http://www.twitchstarter.com/free-twitch-followers-club.php
At the time of writing this article I have been using Twitchstarter for several months, nearly as long as I have been streaming. I have 10k in followers and over 100k in views on Twitch. According to the data on my Twitchstarter dashboard they have sent me 1705 followers and 290775 views.
It is common that people will follow and unfollow so the exact amount of followers I currently have from the figure above is probably a little less. Also I assume the view count is something to do with my Twitchstarter profile and not to do with my Twitch video views. But I think you would agree it’s been a great help to me and my stream.
The Final Word!
Many people have said to me that followers are not important but what is important is concurrent viewers, this is true. But having lots of followers increases your viewership and it also shows people that you are someone who is worth following.
Even now when I already have 10k in followers I still try to use the Followers Club every single day because the more followers I have the better, it is as simple as that!
