Keep Talking Even Though You Feel You Are Alone
Having a 0 viewers count or a few ones can be difficult and mentally exhausting, but all creators have been there. The first thing you’ve got to do is talk nonstop. Users surf through smaller channels looking for streamers to connect with them. If you are chatting, talking about yourself, your interests, opinions, etc., you will manage to retain those users.
Welcome the newcomers
Giving a warm welcome to new users can be super satisfying for them. Previously, we talked about how users want to connect with the streamer and this is the first step to doing it. In addition, greeting a new user can be a good way to start a conversation, so the rest of your viewers will also have the chance to participate. The more you interact with them, the better.
Viewers want to feel heard. They spend countless hours with you and they want that recognition from you. Ask them questions about thems, how is their life going, what they think about a specific topic, etc. You will be fostering a bond here, this helps not only to grow your audience but also to retain it.
Choose the Game You Play Wisely
Another useful tip to get more viewers is to choose the game you play carefully. You must enjoy the game you are playing. Otherwise, you will be bored and the quality of your content will be lower. However, you should also bear in mind that some games are not very popular and that affects the number of viewers you may get. By choosing popular games, your potential audience will be bigger but you will have to compete with a lot of streamers as well. Feel free to choose!
Make Your Viewers Feel They Are Part of the Experience
Viewers want to play with the streamer if possible. This does not mean that they play with you, but they want to be involved with your stream by playing alerts on screen, subscribing, etc. Give them those tools to make them feel involved with the stream, they will have that “spotlight” moment they love.
