Hello everyone. Welcome another BlueStacks Streamer Academy video. My name is Koopa, and we’re going to be talking about: what do the top streamers do to become the tope streamers? How do they do it? Let’s discover how.
Here, we can see the top channels being broadcasted on Twitch from top to bottom. These guys are the best of the best. Every single one of them has done something different to make it to where they’re at. One of the things that I can tell you that all of them have in common is consistency, which is going to be the first thing we talk about and what these guys are doing.
Consistency is a big deal. When we’re streaming on Twitch, we need to be streaming like it’s our full-time job. Like you’re streaming at least five days a week. Sometimes, even seven days a week. Some of the top streamers, these guys will stream every day of the year for at least six hours. It’s just crazy how they can take that much time to do that and that sometimes, it takes that much time for your channel to really grow and blossom into this partnered juggernaut channel that you can provide not only for yourself, but for your entire family and make a living and save enough money to where you could potentially retire by streaming on Twitch. Don’t get frustrated in the beginning. Don’t have crazy expectations. It’s not going to happen overnight. There’s a lot of streamers out there such as Stan’s Gaming. Some of the other ones, guys, some of these other streamers that have hundreds of thousands of followers, they didn’t have this crazy channel within the first year of streaming. It took years, and it took patience. Consistency. Remember that. It’ll help you out in the long run.
One of the things that you can do to become a big streamer is be a professional and with what the type of game that you’re playing. Summit1g is a really good example. This guy is a professional FPS shooter, played in a ton of tournaments, and now does variety casting. He took his initial professional-level FPS skill tier onto Twitch. Now, he still plays FPS’ series, actually still playing CS: GO every once in awhile, but he also will be able to stream other games. Skill tier is one of the ways that you can be the best of the best and be able to stream on Twitch and get a lot of viewers. One of the reasons why people want to watch streams on Twitch is because they want to see the best. They want to see how much potential there really is in the games that we enjoy and watch with each other on Twitch.
One of the other things that a lot of streamers will do if they’ve been streaming for awhile is the professional-level quality. If you notice in Tim’s video quality, it is very clear with very high definition, and you notice his mike stand. A professional-grade mike. These are things that you’ll obtain over time. This is like that next level. This is one of the things that separates these top-tier streamers from the rest of us is that they’re going to have that professional high-grade quality setup, and their viewers, if you’re watching this, like you can tell that these guys have been investing back into their streams, so much that it’s almost like you’re watching a TV show.
Now, just because we have some of these streamers that have really high-quality webcams and really high-quality audio and they’re professionals, that does not mean that’s everything that it takes to get to these top-tier streaming levels. You could just be entertaining and not even have a webcam such as Lirik, and you could still make it to where you have tens of thousands of people watching you. Being entertaining and as long as you could make people laugh and smile, it goes a long ways.
Tyler 1 is a good example of this. He doesn’t really have the highest quality webcam or audio headphones. They’re Logitech G430. It’s actually one of the ones that I started on. The audio quality is actually really poor, but his viewers absolutely love him. He might be sort of a troll, but he means well. He will net overall, he has 15,000 viewers right now with over 15 million views, so this proves that you don’t necessarily need to have the most professional-level audio, that you could just go to Best Buy and buy a $40 headset, turn on the webcam, go to the gym, put on a smile, and as long you can make other people laugh and enjoy themselves, you’re going to find success.
Consistency, professional of a quality, skill tier, be entertaining. These are four things that are going to help you make it there, but there’s a lot more things that do go into it. I would say patience. Twitch is one of the things in this world that will test you as an individual in how far you’re willing to go to make your channel successful. I myself having being swatted within the first year of streaming, that was a test of patience. I think some people would’ve left Twitch and never touched it again.
You’re going to run into challenges. You’re going to have hurdles. You will be frustrated. You just need to patient. All right? I believe in you. If you want to make it to the top, consistent, upgrade your stuff, put effort into it, stream as much as you can, but love it and enjoy it. We are so transparent as human beings, so smile. Be genuine. Make your viewers love you. Make them laugh. Make them smile. They will love you too. They will follow you to the end. Whatever game you play, they will be there with you. You’ll be able to build your entourage, your army, your following. You’re going to have one of the most amazing experiences of your life on this website, I promise.
