How to Grow Your Twitch Fanbase: Giveaways!


maxresdefaultGiving away prizes on twitch is one way to get more viewers into your stream! However, simply offering a prize up can be tricky. How do you get value to your stream that matches the prize you are giving away? If you are giving away a $60 dollar game, but only 3 people enter and nobody follows your stream, it won’t be a great long term plan!


  1. Increases traffic and likely hood your stream will be shared by other community members
  2. You get a chance to “call your viewers to action”
  3. Viewers get a chance to be rewarded with relevant prizes just for watching


  1. Can actually cost you money if not done correctly
  2. Can bring in crazy people just looking for free giveaways
  3. Can come off as “sketchy” if not done properly or honestly
