Hello. My name is Koopatroopa and here with BlueStacks Streamer Academy to tell you about how to get more followers. There are a lot of different techniques and ways that you can do this. Standard though is just have a consistent stream schedule. Eventually more people are going to recognize and realize that, “Hey, this guy’s streaming at the same time every day. I kind of like him. I’m going to follow. I want to know. I want to know when he’s going to be playing other games. I want to know exactly whenever this guy’s streaming.”
Other things that you could do though. A lot of really cool things like streaming different games. Making sure that you’re not always playing the same thing. Because let’s say you play Clash of Clans. A mobile game. A very specific part of Twitch because it’s the only mobile gaming. It takes a very special type of viewer to watch a phone game being streamed on Twitch. Now there are a lot of other very very big directories out there in Twitch like League of Legends, World of Warcraft, all these other games. You want to be having a diverse audience in the sense that you’re actually playing other games as well and trying to take advantage of all the different types of viewers out there to gain more followers.
All right. To demonstrate this to you guys and to kind of really prove this to you is, here’s your dashboard on Twitch and they have an option where you can go to follows. We’re going to load this up and we’re going to go back, I believe it was earlier this year in … I worked with Supercell and we planned out a tournament. It was April. Was it April or was that May? You know, maybe it was March. Let’s go to March. There it is. Look at March. Look at this. Look at this. Forty thousand follows in one day. That’s got to be some kind of record.
When you’re playing these different games, you’re working with these companies and if they offer you some sort of deal where they can’t pay you but they want to throw all of their, everyone that’s playing their game and give you free advertising within their game and saying, “Hey we want you to play this game. We’ll put your name or your Twitch link into our game,” you need to take advantage of that because this is what can happen.
Earlier this summer we’ll go back to Pokemon Go and that was in July. Here it is. Three thousand. Three thousand followers. Three thousand followers. Look at all these thousands of followers. In just a month’s time. Within the whole month we gained over twenty-five thousand follows. Then it drops to four thousand. Because Pokemon Go had a very very steep decline. Then you can see the falling number really really starts to taper off. This will happen. If you have a very explosive growth, expect the growth to stop. Overall you still had a ton of growth by changing games.
Other things you can do for more followers is by utilizing your social media and sinking your Twitch and your Twitter. On your Twitch shouting out on Twitter that, “Hey, I’m streaming live.” One of your follows might retweet that and then their friend sees it and like, “Oh my gosh, who is this guy?” They check it out. They go to you. They follow. You can also do giveaways but don’t always do giveaways. You don’t want to become known at the person where it’s, “Oh my gosh, I got to follow this guy, he’s doing a giveaway.” Then if you stop doing giveaways they unfollow you or they don’t really watch you. You want someone that’s going to watch you either way. You can definitely get spikes in followers by doing a gift card giveaway or that kind of stuff and you might get some extra follows, more retweets, etc.
Hopefully this was insightful on the power of as far as how to get more followers for your Twitch and this same concept goes I guess for any platform whether it’s YouTube or on Twitch or another platform or website. Even helping you gain followers on Twitter. This has been another video with BlueStacks on Streamer Academy. We’ll see you in the next video.
