If you want to become a streamer, then you need to think over your own style, which will bring you popularity. How to do it? Read about that in our article.
- Identify your target audience
First, you need to determine whether you’re going to broadcast for yourself and your friends or to do it professionally for the big audience.

- Think carefully of the plan for the stream development
Sometimes you will be forced to adjust yourself to the need to stream games, choose the most profitable time, work on yourself and show unusual, even foolish behavior. Sometimes you will even have to play games that you absolutely do not like, but they have more viewers, and, hence, bring more money than the ones you love to play. Or the game is just convenient for streaming, you can put a lot of different information on the screen, which does not overlap the game elements.
And even if you are unbearably bored, your viewer should not notice this. Otherwise, you will simply lose the audience. So think carefully, if you want to engage in streaming seriously. And if you still wish to – write out a plan for the development of your stream.
- Think of your twist

Therefore, such players will collect a record audience. And of course, your chances of earning popularity increase a hundredfold if you have a glib tongue.
If you are a woman, then you can compete with a cybersport even if you do not play very well. Just do not forget to put on sexy clothes and flirt.

But interaction with the audience is not limited to witty remarks. Try to make your stream interactive.
Organize contests. Bet and lose. Come up with rewards for reaching a particular number of subscribers or a specific amount of donations. You can even create communities of your subscribers.
In general, the more you involve your community, the better are chances your popularity will skyrocket.
- Choose the game and the time of the broadcast
You can stream different gameplay, show new items on the market and so on, but most likely for this, you will need a name Youtube channel. The chance that with such content you will succeed without Youtube is insignificant. Besides, for broadcasts on similar games much better-prepared speech, cosplay, and other things are needed.
