So you’ve decided you’re going to do it; you’re going to create your own stream. You’re going to become a huge internet celebrity, and everyone is going to want to watch you! Before you reach your goal of internet fame, you may want to keep these basics in mind when getting started. These three points are essential to your success. If you follow them, you’ll attract the right people to your stream; the kind of people that make every time you hit that broadcast button a great memory.
1. Do it for Fun!
I see a lot of streamers give up because they aren’t getting the numbers they want from their stream right at the start. It takes time, and a lot of patience. If you’re focusing on the fun of streaming, and not how popular you are going to become, you won’t worry so much about how fast your stream grows. It’ll just gradually start to happen. This is the right approach, don’t expect wild growth. Be happy with the small battles and always remember, stay true.
You’re better off just being you. Viewers want to watch someone that is real and down to earth, not someone who is fake and looking to be someone they are not. Remember, if you’re really looking to get into streaming, you’ll be doing it a lot, so there’s no reason to hide who you are. Being yourself allows viewers to connect with you on a personal level and really get to know you. You’ll be a lot more comfortable as well, and it’ll make streaming a lot less stressful.
