Twitch is one of the most popular live video streaming portals boasting an average of 15 million daily active users and an estimated 2.2 million broadcasters per month.
Statistics show that viewers watched an astounding 560 billion minutes of video streaming in 2018. The platform is owned by Twitch Interactive – a subsidiary of Amazon.

The money earned by some Twitch streamers just by uploading a live stream of them playing a game can put many jobs to shame and can make them wonder if they should have played video games more professionally.

If you want to make money on Twitch, chances are it’s not going to happen overnight.
Because in order to make money on Twitch you have to grow the numbers of viewers on your channel. Viewers on Twitch translates to the number of users watching your channel at any given time during your feed.
Although viewers might seem synonymous with followers, they are not.
In fact, a stream can have thousands of followers yet it only attracts a few viewers per stream. Unfortunately, those kinds of numbers are not going to get you anywhere on Twitch, and they definitely won’t make you any money.
As we stated before, if you want to make money on Twitch, you need viewers. In order to get viewers, you need to make a serious, personal investment in the growth of your Twitch account.
Time, energy, and possibly even money will need to be spent.
If you are serious about growing the number of viewers on your Twitch account, here is a rundown of the pros and cons of the most popular methods.
Buying Twitch Bots
It’s true that growing the number of viewers on your Twitch account might take a small monetary investment.
However, there is a wide misconception that one can simply buy their way to the top of the Twitch. This is not at all true. Users who are trying to get successful on Twitch are most likely buying Twitch Viewer Bots.
Twitch Viewer bots are a purchased, automated system that sends a large number of fake live viewers to a specific Twitch channel. Unlike real viewers, Twitch View bots cannot carry on intelligent conversations, interact with multiple Twitch users, or even unfollow a user on their own.
And, although accruing a large number of “viewers” in an instant sounds appealing, it is highly frowned upon and even reprimanded within the Twitch Community.
According to the official Twitch website, anyone who is caught using a Twitch View Bot to grow their followers or viewer is subject to penalty. Consequences for the like include a suspension of the Twitch account, or even a permanent ban. If you are attempting to make money using Twitch, this is the last thing you want to happen.
To legitimately grow your Twitch account, you need to spend your time, energy, and money on more respected methods of gaining viewers.
Buy real Twitch viewers from TwitchFollowers.com
Some of the most successful accounts on Twitch have gained viewers by acquiring them organically (for free), as well as purchasing real viewers through online websites.
Gaining Organic Viewers for Free
The most legitimate method for gaining Twitch viewers is to acquire them organically through interaction, streaming, and viewing tactics you are using.
Some of the best methods for gaining organic viewers for free is by engaging in conversations with the people who are already viewing your page, viewing other people’s streams on a consistent basis, and developing a community of Twitch users. To grow a community on Twitch in order to increase the number of Twitch viewers one has on their channel, there has to be a concentrated effort made.
Some of the best tactics for creating are as follows.
1. Concentrating on presentation style
Users on Twitch regularly view channels they find appealing. And, an attractive, easy to follow, and consistent stream of the live feed is very attractive.
To create an attractive stream, one might need to invest in a better internet connection, improved gaming equipment, and keep up with current Twitch trends to make sure they are not falling behind the times.
2. Recommend other user’s feeds
Developing a reliable and beneficial community helps every Twitch user.
Those who are most successful at gaining viewers through Twitch communities, create partnerships with other Twitch users to recommend one another’s feeds.
The more Twitch alliances that are created, the more regular viewers one is likely to have.
3. Find a niche
Most successful Twitch streamers with the largest accounts specialize in a specific game or style of gaming.
Generally speaking, the users who play every new game to hit the market do not typically gain a large number of regular viewers, because they never perfect their skills in one style of game and therefore, are not as entertaining to watch.
However, those who have chosen a specific niche are able to refine their skills and become very entertaining to watch.
4. Create a schedule
To form a community that will earn Twitch viewers, Twitch streamers must create a consistent streaming schedule for their followers.
Many Twitch viewers create their entire day schedule around their favorite streamers’ feeds. Therefore, if a streamer wants to get into their schedule, they better broadcast when viewers are more likely to watch.
Hopping online at random time will not be successful.
5. Give viewers value
Many regular Twitch viewers aspire to be successful Twitch streamers. They take notes on everything their favorite streamers do in order to, hopefully, imitate them and their success in the future.
A successful Twitch streamer can grow their viewer base by giving them inside information and tips on how they can become successful.
Some of the best methods for doing so are showcasing different skills, creating a conversation about successful streaming, and even hosting webinars or classes via a personal Twitch channel. By giving viewers value, Twitch streamers are communicating that they care – and this always keeps them coming back for more.
If a person does not have the time or resources to dedicate to growing a reliable community, that is understandable.
Most people who are trying to grow a large viewer base on Twitch also have full-time jobs and/or families. Therefore, they do not have enough time in a day to commit 5+ hours to stream their feed, additional hours to communicating, and even more, time to grow a reliable community.
However, for those who are interested in legitimately growing the number of Twitch viewers, but don’t have the freedom of spending their entire day on Twitch, purchasing Twitch followers can be a good idea. And, that’s where TwitchFollowers.com comes in.
A reliable website for gaining Twitch followers and ultimately, dedicated Twitch viewers, twitchfollowers.com allows users to purchase followers that are real people.
Buy real Twitch viewers from TwitchFollowers.com
Purchasing Twitch Viewers
It needs to be made clear that purchasing Twitch viewers is not against Twitch guidelines.
Twitch will only interfere with an account when viewers are purchased and subsequently gained through Viewer bots.
Most methods of purchasing Twitch viewers involves a third-party website that pays individuals to watch a Twitch user’s feed. Purchased Twitch followers are assigned to a Twitch user and typically given a designated amount of time per day that they are required to view their assigned user’s account.
Furthermore, paid Twitch viewers are also given a set length of time (days, weeks, months) they must follow an account actively before they can disengage.
There are a plethora of sites offering the opportunity to purchase Twitch viewers, but most of them have a complex pricing structure as well as rules and regulations that are hard to follow. Some of these sites even make use of bots to drive fake views to your channel. But here on TwitchFollowers.com, we provide genuine Twitch viewers and followers. The site operates through the purchase of credits to gain viewers.
When you create your profile as a Twitch streamer, you will automatically gain 5,000 bonus points that can be used to gain new Twitch followers. From there on you can start small at an affordable $10 that goes up to $75 for which you get from 200 to 1500 Twitch follower or viewers.
Buy real Twitch viewers from TwitchFollowers.com
Once the first set of Twitch followers has been purchased, the Twitch user who purchased them can expect the number of Twitch viewers they have to grow as well. Not only will the paid Twitch followers begin to view the account on a regular basis, but the increased number of viewers will signal to other Twitch users that the account is worth watching.
Therefore, the number of viewers will grow far beyond the number of viewers purchased.
In order to keep growing the account, a Twitch user has the option to keep purchasing additional credits. Regularly purchased credits correlate to an audience that is regularly growing.
As a result, those who purchase Twitch followers regularly on twitchfollowers.com have the potential to experience an immediate and dramatic increase in income earned through Twitch than those who do not. However, if one is not interested in purchasing Twitch followers regularly, they can also grow the number of Twitch viewers they have by engaging with their purchased Twitch followers.
Engaging with purchased Twitch followers will assist in creating a positive Twitch community on the user’s account. And, when other viewers (not purchased) experience a positive Twitch community they are highly likely to remain a viewer of the account and recommend the account to their friends.
Purchase your first set of Twitch followers immediately and watch your Twitch channel grow rapidly. You will be happy with the results you see and the success that follows. Start Growing your Channel
Everyone knows that they can make insane amounts of money by streaming their video game feed online, through twitch.
What most people don’t know is exactly how much money they can make, or how to make it.
Today, we have these answers for you.
In order to start making money on Twitch, you have to become a Twitch Affiliate.
Twitch affiliation is offered to individual Twitch users who have shown that they are dedicated to the platform and have a growing number of followers. Offered directly by Twitch, affiliation is an opportunity to make an income whenever your streams are viewed and subscribed.
If you do not want to stream yourself, there is another way you can make money out of as Twitch, i.e, by viewing and following other streamers, click here to learn more.
How to become a Twitch Affiliate?
To get started on your way to becoming a Twitch affiliate fast, you will have to work on growing the number of followers to your Twitch account to 50.
And although growing your Twitch followers organically is a very difficult task, there are proven systems for making it much simpler.
On twitchfollowers.com you sign up, earn credits, gain followers, and make money quickly.
The system is proven, simple, and can’t be beaten.
And, if you sign up for twitchfollowers.com today, you can earn bonus credits that will increase your followers and earning potential almost immediately.
How does it work?
Aside from joining twitchfollowers.com, you will want to have a number of other strategies in place in order to make money online using twitch.tv. Here are a few that have been proven to work.
1. Enable Ad Streaming To Your Account
Just like ads placed on a personal website or on YouTube channel, ads placed on Twitch accounts have the ability to make money for the host.
Although the addition of ads to your Twitch account won’t make you a millionaire overnight, they do make sense. If you are already focused on growing your followers, why not add this super simplistic stream of income?
After all, making more money never hurts!
To have ad streaming enabled on your channel, you will have to first become a twitch affiliate which again requires at least 50 followers. These initial subscribers can be organically increased by:
Finding other Twitch streamers to follow.
Collaborating with other Gamers.
Engaging regularly with their current Twitch followers.
Finding a Twitch niche.
Creating a dedicated Twitch streaming schedule.
Unfortunately, this can be a very long and excruciatingly slow process for new Twitch streamers.
That is where we come in, TwitchFollowers.com can help you gain the initial momentum to build your audience and get affiliated.
2. Create Merchandise
The suggestion of creating merchandise in order to make money on Twitch is not necessarily for users just starting out.
However, for users who have large, dedicated following merchandise can be an extremely effective way to pad your pockets. Traditional merchandise such as hats, hoodies, and t-shirts are all wonderful options for gaming merchandise. For users really looking to give their revenue a boost, they can add video game accessories such as controllers to that mix.
When creating merchandise for your followers it is suggested to do so in conservative amounts until you know you have a dedicated enough following to buy it.
After all, no one needs 50 hoodies on their hands.
3. Research Sponsored Streaming Opportunities
Video game developers want two things. First, they want to develop the best game on the market.
And second, they want to get their game into the hands of people who will help it be seen all over the globe.
These days, one of the best ways to accomplish both of these goals is by offering sponsorship to live video game streamers. Live video game streamers are experienced gamers, and therefore have the expertise to provide constructive feedback to video game developers.
Furthermore, live video game streamers are on the radar of video game enthusiasts from all over the world.
If you have grown a large following on Twitch but are looking to make a little bit more money, it might be worth your time and effort to reach out to a few video game companies regarding sponsorships. Many of them are more willing than you might think to hand over a little dough in return for a little bit of exposure.
4. Become a Twitch Partner
If you have been a user of Twitch for a while you will know that becoming a partner is the ultimate goal.
Twitch partners make the most money through their affiliate program and are given opportunities before any other user. They attract more followers than anyone else on the platform. It is an exclusive opportunity which only 22,000 out of about 2 million twitch users have got.
In order to become a Twitch partner, there is a list of specific criteria you need to meet including streaming time, unique streaming sessions, and the number of followers you have.
If you are looking to make an income on Twitch and are just starting out, partner criteria should be your goal and you should work towards achieving it every day.
5. Allow Your Followers to Donate
Believe it or not, there are many twitch users who are more than willing to make a donation to an individual streaming user if it means keeping their favorite channel alive.
There are over 2.2 million twitch users right now in the system, and many of those are dedicated to watching Twitch live streams, especially if they are being broadcasted by their favorite user.
There are many different partner programs available able to add a donation button to your Twitch account.
Most of these partner programs are even able to add the option to donate to your account via PayPal, which makes the process seamless for most people.
6. Don’t Forget About Twitch Bits
Much like streaming advertisements, Twitch bits are not going to make you money overnight. But again, like streaming advertisements, the more followers you have the more money Twitch bits will make you.
Twitch bits are the Twitch version of emoticons (💎). During live streams, a Twitch user can use a bit in a chat room.
Every time a bit is used, the user the person is following at that time gets one cent. So, just imagine if you have multiple people using bits at the same time your earning potential may not be extreme, but it is also likely to be more than just a little bit of pocket change.
7. Add Affiliate Links
Bloggers all over the world make six-figure income per month through affiliate marketing. And, while that is amazing, the great news is that Twitch users have the ability to do the same.
Individual Twitch users can form affiliate partnerships with companies, attach the link to their stream, and then get paid when their followers use the link to purchase the item. It’s a plain and simple way to make money.
Most affiliate partnerships on Twitch are for video game products, technology products, or video game related merchandise.
However, if you can’t cultivate a technology-related affiliate partnership, there are many other companies who are eager to offer this opportunity. And, any affiliate link is better than no affiliate link!
Consider Alternative Twitch Accounts
Surprisingly, video games are not the only type of account that can make you money on Twitch. Users can also get paid for:
hosting their own talk show,
live streaming their workout, and so much more.
So, if you are interested in making money via Twitch, but are not involved in video games, you should not worry!
Using any and all of these methods to earn money via Twitch will quickly prove profitable.
However, we still recommend the best way to make money with Twitch is to get started by signing up on twitchfollowers.com to get you headed in the right direction!

In short, Amazon Prime is the umbrella under which all the company’s other Prime programs run.

You also receive discounts on new-release box video games sold by Amazon during the pre-order period and for the first two weeks after its launch.
Moreover, on Twitch, you get an ad-free viewing experience, exclusive emoticons & chat badges and one free channel subscription every 30 days. One of the latest perks is that Twitch Prime members get up to one year of Nintendo Switch Online.

Is Twitch Prime replacing Turbo?

These benefits include ad-free viewing, exclusive emoticons (the ones you get with Turbo, plus new ones), Twitch Prime crown chat badge, and 60 days of video storage for past broadcasts.
All Turbo benefits are included in Twitch Prime so you may want to consider canceling Turbo if you are currently subscribed to both services. However, if you prefer to keep your Turbo subscription, you can.

From your account’s homepage, click on the “Prime” button then scroll down to find the Twitch Prime listing.
Click on “Learn More”.
Click the “Connect your Twitch Account” button in the upper-right corner.
Follow the shown instructions and click the purple “Confirm” button.
After that your Twitch and Amazon accounts will be linked, and you can start enjoying all the awesome Twitch Prime benefits.
Your accounts only need to be linked once, and the connection will work across other devices where you use Twitch such as on PlayStation or iPhone.
How to claim your free Twitch subscription?
While Twitch subscription tiers range from $4.99 to $24.99 a month, you can unlock a free subscription option through the Amazon/Twitch Prime program.
The free Twitch subscription is same as the $4.99 tier and functions the same way as it would if you paid for it. Thus, the streamer receives 50% of the total donation fee, around $2.50, and Twitch keeps the rest.
The free subscription is automatically given to Twitch Prime users as soon as their free trial ends and they begin paying the monthly fee. Once you start your paid Prime membership, do the following steps to redeem your free Twitch subscription:
Open your web browser and navigate to the Twitch channel you want to subscribe to.
In the top-right corner of the screen, or below the video to the right, click on the purple “Subscribe” button.
A small box containing subscription options will appear. Click the “Subscribe Free” button to begin your free subscription for this channel.
When Twitch Prime members use their free channel subscription every month, the Twitch streamer gets paid just like any other subscription. We see this as a great new way to support the streamers you love, find new ones, or even just use it for crashing subscriber-only chat rooms!
How to switch from paid to free subscription?
Twitch users can switch from a paid subscription to their free subscription option without breaking their subscription streak on a channel by doing the following:
Go to the subscriptions page on the Twitch website.
To the far right of your chosen channel’s profile will be a purple button called payment info. Click on it.
Click on “Don’t Renew” to cancel your subscription.
Your subscription will remain active for the remainder of the current subscription month but will cease working the day after the final day.
How to renew your free Twitch subscription?
Unlike paid subscriptions, the free Twitch subscription does not automatically renew. Free subscriptions must be renewed each month with these steps:
Visit your chosen channel in a web browser.
Manually re-subscribe every 30 days.
The process is identical to how you would subscribe to a Twitch channel for the first time.
Please note: Subscription streaks will continue as long as the subscription to the same account is renewed within 30 days of its expiration.
How to cancel your free Twitch subscription?
To cancel your free Twitch subscription, you will need to wait for the end of the current 30-day subscription period.
After these 30 days are over, the subscription will expire and it can be used on any other Twitch channel which has subscriptions enabled.

If you are looking to gain viewers organically you will need to engage in conversation with your current viewers, create a community of people to support each other, and dedicate 5+ hours of your day to streaming your feed.
With Twitch View bots, you don’t have to do any of that.
Designed to be like regular followers and viewers, Twitch Bots engage in conversation, plant comments, and interact with other users on Twitch without you having to pay attention to every detail of the conversation or even having to engage yourself.
You choose the specific manner and language your bot interacts in.
However, because the language is very methodical and almost impersonal, Twitch bots can be easily recognized by other viewers and followers of your feed.
There are two types of bots that are popular among Twitch enthusiasts.
There are Twitch Follower Bots that are deployed to drastically increase the number of followers on your channel. The other type of bot is a viewer bot. Viewer bots are placed on your channel and dedicated to consistently viewing your feed and initiating interaction.
Both types of Twitch bots can impact your feed and make it appear very successful.
However, both of them are frowned upon by dedicated Twitch users and Twitch itself.
What is wrong with using a Twitch Viewer Bot?
Sure, when you look at it from the surface, Twitch Viewer Bots appear to be innocent enough.
However, when you dive deep into the logistics of Twitch and Twitch users you will find they create a corrupt and unfair advantage that creates turmoil within the community.
Twitch Viewer Bots are not real people. In fact, they aren’t people or even robots at all.
Twitch View Bots are simply a method for inflating the viewer number and viewer interaction to make it appear as though a specific account is very popular.
When you purchase a view bot to view your channel you are creating a false impression to other users.
It’s kind of like committing fraud. Other users see that you have a large number of followers, perceive your stream to be popular and of high quality, and therefore follow you. However, if you are using view bots to simulate your popularity you have just mislead a real viewer. And, when a viewer feels mislead they are likely to stop following your page because it appears untrustworthy.
Furthermore, bots have the tendency to continually attempt to engage in artificial conversation with other users which can be viewed as harassment.
Again, not a wise choice for someone looking to gain Twitch followers/viewers.
What are the consequences of using a Twitch Viewer Bot?
On twitch.tv, Twitch officially outlines that anyone caught using bots of any variety faces the potential of their Twitch account being suspended or shut down.
The site also outlines that they deploy a variety of forces to combat bots and enforce consequences to those who are caught using them.
However, it is stated that each bot case is reviewed on a case-by-case basis and that there is no definite protocol for the decision of consequences.
And, although that might sound like an invitation to try to sneak by the Twitch police, it is more of a warning that the consequences you receive could be worse than you imagined.
The bottom line is, if you are interested in using bots as a Twitch follower acquisition method, you may want to think twice before dumping all of your resources into it.
Although Twitch bots seem glamorous, they often mean bad news for the user and end up doing more harm than good.
If I can’t use Twitch Bots, what can I use to gain Twitch followers?
Truly, there are reliable and legitimate ways to gain Twitch followers without using Twitch bots.
And, although the methods might seem cumbersome, with the correct discipline they can prove to be very successful.
If you are looking to grow your Twitch community and gain Twitch followers without the use of Twitch Bots, one of the best ways to do so is by cultivating organic followers.
One of the best methods for acquiring organic followers is through the creation of an online Twitch community.
Those who have found success by growing an online Twitch community have done so by:
Finding other Twitch streamers to follow.
Recommending other Twitch streamers feeds.
Engaging regularly with their current Twitch followers.
Finding a Twitch niche.
Creating a dedicated Twitch streaming schedule.
Each of these different methods for creating a Twitch community has its own list of best practices. For example, when you are creating a dedicated Twitch streaming schedule you should set aside 3 hours per day, at a minimum, to focus on streaming.
And, if you want to grow your followers by engaging with current followers on a regular basis, you want to be sure and develop a positive, well-constructed conversation.
Unfortunately, finding organic Twitch followers for free can be very time-consuming.
It not only takes the time you set aside for streaming on Twitch but also the time you need to dedicate to your community and organizing your efforts.
Furthermore, if you are like most Twitch users trying to grow an income it is likely that you have a full-time job and even a family life that does not allow you to dedicate that amount of time to growing your Twitch account.
That’s where finding paid viewers comes in.
Purchasing Viewers and Followers Online
Instead of spending all of your time creating a schedule that will allow you to grow your followers on Twitch, you can simply purchase Twitch followers online.
Twitch followers are available on a variety of sites for a variety of prices.
And, the best part about it, purchasing Twitch followers is not against Twitch rules as long as the followers you are purchasing are real people.
Trusted Twitch follower sites recruit and pay real people to follow and view your account on a regular basis.
Once you purchase a viewer there are set parameters they have to follow.
Most purchased Twitch followers are required to view a specific Twitch account for a certain amount of time per day and follow the account for a set amount of time.
If any of the purchased Twitch followers unfollow their required account inside of the guaranteed timeframe, it is likely the company you purchased them from will either reimburse you or provide you with a new follower to take their place.
What is the best place to buy Twitch followers?
One of the best sites to use if you are looking to buy Twitch followers is www.twitchfollowers.com. This diverse site allows you to sponsor players to view your stream.
The way it works is that you sign up for the site and submit a small fee that will cover the cost of paying for users to log-in and follow/view your Twitch account.
Sponsored users are paid by the amount of time they watch a channel and which channels they are watching.
Many users looking for new followers like to use twitchfollowers.com because they know it is a legitimate site that pays legitimate people to follow them.
Some of the benefits users of twitchfollowers.com have experienced include an increased number of engaged viewers, more organic follows and the quick growth of their channel.
When you buy Twitch followers, as mentioned above, it is likely that you will get more Twitch followers than you paid for from the site.
That is because when an account appears to be popular, it is more attractive to users who are looking for pages to follow. And, attractive pages get new followers first.
The Bottom Line: Don’t Use Twitch Viewer Bots, Purchase Your Twitch Viewers on twitchfollowers.com
If you truly are trying to grow your Twitch account into an opportunity that can earn you an income you should be very diligent about avoiding Twitch Viewer Bots.
These automated robots are not worth the risk they bring to you and your Twitch career.
Furthermore, they are only a temporary fix to what requires a long-term solution.
When you focus on creating a Twitch following and viewer base that is actually invested in your work and your talents, it is highly likely you will experience larger and much more prolonged success on the site.
From there you will be able to boost your Twitch career with a one-time purchase of a follower group, or you will be able to exponentially grow your Twitch career by creating a method of purchasing followers and converting them to loyal viewers that will benefit you for a lifetime.
No matter which method you choose, we are certain you will experience success when you partner with twitchfollowers.com.
