Have you ever been curious as to what Twitch is all about? Have you been curious enough to give it a try only to back out when you saw that it seemed a tad bit too complicated to actually go live on Twitch?
After all, who understands OBS and those many windows that you seem to need to get a hang of right? One just needs to take a look and you’d feel extremely overwhelmed.
Twitch can be quite intimidating if you are just the average live streamer who goes live on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or YouTube. After all, with those platform, you just hit the live button and you are good to go. This is not the case for Twitch which may be why a lot of people who are Facebook Live may not be willing to give Twitch a chance.
“It’s so complicated.”
“Where do I start?”
“What is Discord?”
“Why are there so many windows?”
“Do I need to fill out all of that?”
These are just some of the questions that pop up in one’s head once you enter Twitch.
Thankfully, this is no longer the case because with BeLive, you can easily get into Twitch in 3 easy steps. YES, you read that right. 3 easy steps. Now, before we do so, let’s do a quick summary of what Twitch is about and why you should give it a try even if you are already doing well with Facebook Live.
Twitch is a live streaming platform that initially catered to gamers but has been opening new channels for IRL (in real life) streaming which includes talk shows, artist showcase, cooking shows, events, and even a category called just chatting where people can simply stream and talk.
Twitch has millions of untapped audience that you can reach out to. Since the categories for IRL are still fairly new, there are so many opportunities for people who are just getting into Twitch. The fact that Twitch opened this category is also a testament that there is a need and demand for it. When there is a clamor, then there is a need that must be met and provided. Wouldn’t you want to be the one to provide it?
