Hello everyone. Welcome to BlueStacks Streamer Academy. My name is Koopa, and today we’re going to talk about how to name your stream title.
Welcome to your dashboard. Now, how to set up your stream title isn’t exactly that difficult. This is your title area, and this can be whatever you want. Let’s say it’s your first stream ever. “First Stream Ever!” Exclamation mark because we’re excited. We’ll stick with English for now. You can restrict chat language if you would like to, then you can choose your game.
Now, when it comes to picking out exactly what your title should be, it’s got to be something eye catching. It’s got to be something where I’m randomly browsing Twitch, I’ve never seen you before and let’s say I’m just looking at titles, I’m not even looking at the webcam. It’s got to be alluring. So what would that be?
So here we are watching UGR play Resident Evil 7 on opening night. Notice his title, “Full Game Hype.” This is an excellent example of a good title that you could do for a stream, especially when the game just launches. Clearly you know he’s going to be playing through the entire stream. If you have a lot of time to invest into a stream, you want to really get to know someone, you know you’re in for a long show, and you know you’re going to have plenty of time to interact with that streamer because he’s playing the entire game. This is a good example of how to make a good title for your stream.
Now if you’re a competitive player and have a high skill tier, this is another good example. Hearthstone professional players all coming together, including world champ, all in one stream. And you have a really good description of everyone that’s involved.
So we’ve given some good examples of what makes a title a good title. You’re kind of clickbaiting someone in to click on your Twitch, but you’re doing it in a good way. There are some people that will try and get you into a stream with giveaways or get something for free and you don’t want to necessarily be known as the person that someone goes to and they’re like, “Oh, hey, look. So and so is streaming. Let’s see if there’s a giveaway today.” That’s not really the kind of person you to watch watching your stream.
So the best way to do it is to kind of clickbait them but in a good way. “Oh, I just broke a record!” Or “#1 player this!” Or “We’re going to be streaming for 24 hours straight.” Which, good luck if you do. Very hard on your body, so make sure you drink plenty of fluids.
Again, honest titles are going to attract the right kind of viewers. You want to get people in but in a way where you’re being truthful about it and it’s sincere. It’s not like they get into your stream and they ask you about the title and you don’t really have anything to say back to that. “Yeah, I just said that to get you into the stream.” And there’s this awkward conversation, and everyone else gets to see that, and it kind of leaves a sour taste in their mouth too. You want to remain transparent and genuine so that your viewers will trust you and they keep coming back.
Thanks for watching another BlueStacks Streamer Academy video. My name is Koopa, and I will see you in the next one.
