This Non-partner idiot talking like he has a clue about anything.
Valid point. And to be honest one I don't have the answer to.
believe. And compared to the 80,0000 folks I see per day randomly spamming Bullshit in desperation for 'the grind'? hell - I'd say a belief carrys
at least some weight.
decade of marketing and online analytical background? Strap in. Want to keep mindlessly spamming retweets on 72 hashtag pyramid schemes? enjoy
your 5 viewers.
worked, janky production, eventually finding your way into a follow for follow 'streamteam' loophole. Because MUST GET AFFILIATE!
what, whats your plan rockstar? You got affiliate now! whats next? bounce round twitter looking for free emotes and enjoying the heavily taxxed
bits and subs your new found status allows you?
thought your content was worth a damn? Y'all gonna share your affiliate invite email like it aint some kind of automated 'kicked out once
parameters are met' afterthought?
(but not your chatbot - you aint put that much work in yet) then wrap it up with a sense of pride?
TO PARTNER STREAM HELP ME OUT GET ON THE GRIND!' - blissfully naive to the fact that the gulf between the two is SO LARGE that its
insurmountable to most?
accomplishment. And coming into this game with the mentality that it is? Twitch gonna be dead before you even LOOK at Partner.
out? You REALLY want to be somebody that people talk about and think of? you gotta think miles ahead of that. From the get go. Get your
production ON POINT.
everything. Your stream settings, your frame rates, your audio levels and quality. I cannot emphasise this enough - AUDIO OVER EVERYTHING.
the best at the game - you can have smooth as hell visuals - if you sound like ass and I can hear your mom yelling at you to finish your
homework every 5 minutes? Im out.
OBS / xsplit works? aint gonna hang around. Nail. The. Basics.
in a game where everything is judged by numbers and metrics - numbers mean NOTHING. I'm serious. We've already established affiliate aint
something you should care about.
to nuclear oblivion before you hit it - so tell me. Why the hell you care about your follower count? your views? how many toxic
meme lords are in your discord?
on that in a minute).
and to meet cool people' at the same time as pushing out endless self promotion about 'the grind'.
about that stuff? this aint aimed at you - hell you aint even reading it. But for those that want a moderate level of success aint nobody gonna
give your affiliate begging - stream team promoted tweets a second glance.
the endgame? you gotta build. ACTUALLY build. Which leads me onto...
fresh, you sound great, you aint running at 5 frames a second. Now you need folks to watch you. Your own personal stats here take a back seat. You need a community.
dont have an answer to those questions? Or cant live up to what you believe? or even worse - like some wonderful recent exposures - are false.
your success is judged? Disrespectful as F - dont fuckin' do it.
and harmony comes from a wide range of people with different tastes, backgrounds, and exposures. But sharing a common interest - an interest in
1 amazing human theres 1,000 racist 12 year old screechers.
keep them along because 'HEY BETTER THAN STREAMING TO NOBODY RIGHT?' Wrong. Numbers don't matter.
talkative edgy motherfucker rolls in? if that aint what you champion (which if it is - by all means i guess) Ban that shit - keep it out
toxicity around for fear of lack of exposure is...I mean christ. Stupid is too soft a word for it. 1 person that is YOUR PERSON. Is worth 18
screaming trolls. That 1 person could expose you to others they know that are of a similar mindset. This is how community forms.
you attract 'the right people?' Youre spamming your notifications in every discord you belong in! youre retweeting every stream team
notification WHERE ARE YOUR PEOPLE?!?! Allow me to introduce you to..
stream teams work and why your tweet game week! HELL I pushed out a tweet yesterday to my stream team hastag and got 56 RETWEETS! AND 2 people
came by and dropped raids on me to a total of 20 viewers! CHECKMATE ATHEISTS'
Streamteams CAN work. In one way. You meet people.
own 20 populated discord to clear out the notifications of everyone tagging like crazy in the stream team one
meet a diamond in that rough And there ARE some good ones out there - but i gotta tell you.
claiming to 'run a community' seems to have WAY MORE of an idea (spoilers, they dont)
interest as a new person with nothing to offer (spoilers - they dont) and do their utmost to push you to the stars (spoilers, they wont)
411. Jeff goldbluum style.
1. streamer at top creates 'stream community'
2. Streamer gains a large following of eager beavers that will show up
every stream - retweet every tweet - all in the hope of gaining the glorious....
YOU! YOU GOT 12 FOLLOWERS FROM THEIR 30 PERSON HOST! WOW! I mean after 10 minutes they all left and none of them ever came back but THAT
AFFILIATE TARGET THOUGH!
to them. 5. Rinse repeat until natural growth comes to a flatline and you quit. Its a false economy. And it sucks.
because it feels so good - it keeps you engrossed in the 'community' and you chase that dragon - your NUMBERS (that dont matter) your NUMBERS on
social media are so HIGH!
hope you'll follow their account and retweet theirs)
you up - but at least that tweet number means people are seeing you? RIGHT?!
agree - but much like 'viewrs to troll BS' the ratio of communities that arent pyramid schemes and circle jerks is...super small. And every day I
see SO MANY people, falling into these traps. People. Please. Stop.
and the viewers that resonate with you. Dont buy into misguided circle jerking and mistake it for growth the way a 14 year old kid mistakes a
smile from a crush as love.
enjoy and people streaming them. Hang around in their channels, find streamers that are a good fit. Meet their viewers, make ACTUAL FRIENDSHIPS.
strong idea of yourself and how you are presented - with all the basics covered and tech on point and use social media EFFICIENTLY - THEN you
might start to see the foundation of something. with a bit of 'Luck'.
so lucky) Luck is a great fall guy (Oh Im just unlucky) Luck is a fantastic spite weapon (oh well if I WAS lucky enough to get a host like
that I'D be doing much better).
something other than the core 3 metrics. Luck is actually a combination of Preparation, and Opportunity. If you cover everything we
so far, and live and die by it
into your lap - sometimes you gotta work hard for them - but heres the thing about opportunity
6000 retweets and host for hosts) the more opportunities present themselves. You aint seeing opportunity? you aint prepared enough to recognise
this far, have a cookie - you made it to the part I ACTUALLY know about.
within your streamteams and are a huge circle jerk that achieve nothing? cool. Heres another hot tip for you.
and a couple of account tags your visibility and effectiveness of tweets actually DIMINISH? Cool huh!?
stream teams and 'shout out accounts' would PROBABLY be aware of and educate you on right? like if they knew what they were doing? right? and had
your bets interests in mind....right?
This is not an opinion. This is fact. you might get 'numbers on the tweet' but most will be automated and none that are manual will care.
do two experiments here shall we? Pick your account that you retweet every time you go live to shout you out. Go on! Alright now go look at
that accounts actual output and see how many porn/spam accounts are automatically tweeted out by it. Go ahead. Ill wait. Neet huh!
audience. Thats where your tweets are going. Stop it. Tag the game youre playing by all means! tag maybe one or two things as well! maybe you
streaming WITH someone. Get them in there! maybe you have a saying or community in joke! go for it!
Also - whats attached to it? Humans are lazy - we are visually focused and more inclined to pick up images and movement than a long list of
words (im aware of the hypocrisy here)
ABOUT CHRIS PRATT WITH HIS MOUTH AGAPE TURNING TOWARDS THE CAMERA!. Again. No. Heres another tip.
3rd party like tweetdeck - track a ton of keyphrases related to twitch - and see exactly how many per second roll through with identikit builds
just like that. Yup - you 1 in 52,000 a second using that gif playing that game.
make yourself stand out? You, your content. People are WAY more likely to watch an attached clip of you playing a game in the past - than they
will EVER - EVER a random fucking gif of a HYPE toad

here now all doing this
me doing the same thing!
I've got the most of my vent out - so thanks if you stayed this long. I aint gonna say check me out - my channel aint built for the majority of
actual friends - stay away from pyramid BS and have a great weekend. Here have your fucking Hype toad.
