You have to keep in mind that the more the audience stays back in your stream, the more views you will get. In this blog, we will get into how you can engage your audience more during the gaming live streams.

Tips to Engage the Audience more in the Streams

Without wasting much time, let us get into all the tips and tricks that you can use to keep your audience more engaged in your streams:

Q&A Sessions

These are some of the best ways to make your streams more fun. If you have a small Question and Answer session where your audience will be asking you questions about your life, you can also ask them about their different views and points regarding your stream and also your content. This will help you improve your content and stream as well. The Question and Answer sessions will also make the audience more interested as they will get to know you more, and they will also get to know what sort of views and opinions you have on the Esports community.

Streaming out of the box

Let us assume that you stream some sort of game regularly. It would be quite refreshing if you try to stream something other than games once in a while. You could give a house tour to your audience, or even show your stream setup. This would also inspire people who are trying to build their streaming and gaming careers. You can also stream when you are going out. Say you are going to a fun event, and instead of just vlogging, you can just stream there. You can also try to react to various videos of your own or even those of other creators. This would make your stream interesting, and it won’t even feel repetitive for you! This would also spice things up, and you could keep attracting new audiences through this.

Involving your Audience in your Games

You can select a few special audience members, or the daily ones to play certain games with you if they agree to it. This would make you quite popular, as it is not every day that a normal fan can get the opportunity to play with their favourite gamers or streamers! This would most definitely make them want to become regular and interact with you more so that they could get featured or play with you. However, you have to make sure that they are not just random who got the opportunity Make sure to keep track of whom you are interacting with regularly, and then ask them if they would be interested in playing with you for a stream or not.

Host Giveaways

Another way to build your audience and also keep them interested in your stream is to host giveaways. People love free stuff and such things, so when they hear that there is a chance of participating in some giveaway, they will want to take part in it. Make sure to host the giveaways at the end of your stream so that more people stick around to watch the end and see the winner. This would increase your view count, and you would also find an audience base for your streams. You do not always need to give away expensive things. A small gift card also goes a long way during these giveaways. Hence, make sure to choose carefully.

Newsjacking

This is something that almost all of the streamers do. Whenever you are streaming, make sure to talk about the trending topic of the day. If you skim through Twitter and other social media, you will find something or the other trending. All you have to do is just be aware of what is going on, and when you get into the stream, you start talking about it with your audience. Here, you can do anything with the topic. You could either put forward your opinion and talk to your audience about why it is right or wrong, or what your views are. Or you can even judge the whole situation with your audience by going through all the videos and tweets about the topic. Lastly, you can also give some controversial opinions about the whole thing, and it might blow up for a while, but in the end, it would also hurt your reputation. You can also try to explain the situation to your audience by breaking it down or just putting things simply. This would also help you to gain a name in the streaming community as someone who is quite unbiased and helps people to understand what is going on in the community.

Conclusion

These were some of the tips and tricks that you could use to ensure that your audience is more engaged in your stream while you are going live. The end note to all this would be to just ensure that your audience has a good time. If you try too hard, people might find it pretentious. Hence, always make sure to keep it real and simple with your audience, and you will be good to go!
