Tips for a Catchy Twitch Title
The two most important points to consider when thinking about your new Twitch title is: whether it’s relevant and appealing.
Your Title Should be Self-Explanatory
Your title needs to let people know the type of content you will be streaming. It should catch Twitch users interested in the content based on your title and convince them to check it out. For example, if you have an impressive score on a popular game, you could make the game name and your score your stream title. Not only is this type of title unique, but it is pretty self-explanatory.
Or perhaps you’ll be doing something wild on the stream. Let people know by putting it as your stream title, and it will attract those interested in that type of content.
Keep the Title Relevant
Be sure to have a relevant and meaningful title. It’s ok for popular streamers to use one-word titles as they will attract a crowd regardless of what the stream’s called. This method will not work for you, especially if you’re just starting. As a smaller streamer developing your popularity, you’ll need to take all the small wins you can get that will eventually turn you into a pro. Or at least get more people to click through to watch your stream.
Ensure your stream title is relevant and catchy. Once you attract your viewers, keep the stream entertaining and pertinent to your title as much as naturally possible.
