When it comes to non-gaming content, we usually overlook Twitch. Did you know that in Twitch, there is a whole category devoted to anything artistic? Have you ever steamed yourself cooking? Are you aware of Creative? Here is the good news, this category has established itself even in places where people were not big on it.
There are two categories of content to be live-streamed; gaming and creative. Have you live-streamed on Twitch before? How was the experience? A greater percentage of viewers are always exposed to Facebook or YouTube not knowing they are missing on a live streaming powerhouse, Twitch. If you are not privy to streaming on Twitch, here are the reasons you should make it your go-to streaming platform.
1. Twitch communities
Which category of content do you stream? Have you realized that google stores your search engine results? Have you noticed that suggestions of what to search are always related to what you normally search for? This increases the likelihood of increasing the number of things you search on a daily basis. Twitch uses the same strategy but takes it to a higher level. It separates the content into different categories such that interested viewers can easily locate it.
While streaming on other platforms, streamers are always wondering how to get viewers. At some point, others always go to the extreme of marketing their brand; they buy Facebook followers. Think about it, why would you stream if no one is interested in your live streams? Not so on Twitch. Here, through the communities, viewers easily locate your content. This is such a surreal experience especially for those who are used to running ads aimed at getting viewers. Guess how diverse the communities are? Are you into gaming? Are you into cooking or coding?
To paint a picture, think of it this way. As a musician-to-be, you live to stream your content online through Twitch. By doing so, you start meeting fellow musicians with the same mindset, those who share your vision. And just like that, you start having a multitude of followers. These are not just new followers, those who follow the musicians you’ve just met will follow as well. Where else can you get such a platform? It has been a long since you received new followers, Twitch brings a multitude of them.
2. Add Overlays to Your streams
While other live streaming platforms provide several tools for sharing booth gaming and creative content, they have limitations in their ability to decorate videos. Do you want to improve the background of your streams? Do you want to improve your live streaming bandwidth? While on Twitch, you will never experience these problems again. Twitch provides you with a live app with several options, with pre installed options and guess what, you get to choose the options as per your needs.
Do you want to add normal text to your videos? At times, some streamers prefer contents that are accompanied by texts. This is catered for on Twitch. Moreover, there are lower thirds. It even takes the experience a notch higher for those working on a sporting event. It improves the quality of your content. Where else would you have all these privileges while having the autonomy of what to do at the same time?
You have an option of choosing to add stock graphics that come with the app or choose those which come with the iPad library. Do you think somebody somewhere is going to spare their time to follow your boring content while there are more appealing ones? Avoid being just a random Livestream. Acquaint yourself with these graphics and have an authentic and professional outlook.
3. Twitch chat integration
Of prime importance to Twitch live streaming is interacting with the viewers else what would be the difference between a Livestream and lasting content? Do you want to chat while viewing content? Twitch provides it just the way you love it. Are you a streamer, you too are covered.
As an iPad streamer, you get to access your streams. At the bottom of the chart, these options have been incorporated just for you. Have you used any charts? As a top streamer that you are, you can easily navigate through the chart as you have already been accustomed to. Are you a beginner? Some people would say, “you know, I am not into charting”, you know, charting requires those who are skilled at it, ’you don’t just know how difficult it is to chart with viewers while streaming it.” Am here to tell you to try using the options as they are very easy to use.
Twitch is made for you who is having a hard time starting streaming, for you who is having unanswered questions, for you who has tried other platforms and found them not to be friendly. Strat into it. You will be surprised at the outcome.
