In a previous post, I showed you How To Get More Views On Twitch. Today, we’re going to review how to get more views on Mixer.
While the principles will remain the same, there are strategies specific to Mixer you can implement to help drive more views to your channel.
Getting more views on Mixer comes down to these basic steps:
- Don’t play just any game
- Remember that Mixer is Microsoft (Xbox)
- Build audiences on other platforms too
Don’t Play Just Any Game on Mixer
Mixer is a newer platform and therefore a much smaller platform. This provides an opportunity for you to rank high in many games you stream.
Remember, the top streamers are going to be playing a handful of games. Most other games on Mixer are going to have a much smaller viewership, allowing you to rank in the top spots when streaming.
Now that we’ve discussed playing less popular games, lets take this principle a step further.
On Mixer the vast majority of games being streamed are Xbox Games.
This presents an opportunity for you. See what games are popular on Twitch and see how popular they are on Mixer.
As I’m writing this, League of Legends is the #1 game being streamed on Twitch to 141k viewers. Meanwhile on Mixer it’s sitting in the 22nd spot being streamed to 322 viewers.
Clearly League of Legends has a following, just not yet on Mixer. Why not try capitalize on that?
This is another opportunity for you to be different. Stream games that are popular, just not popular on Mixer.
With just 20 viewers you can rank in the #1 or #2 spot in a majority of games. Making sure you rank in these smaller watched games is a great way to get more views on Mixer.
Mixer is Made by Microsoft (Xbox)
Mixer is integrated into the Xbox ecosystem. This presents a unique opportunity for you to drive views to your stream.
First, you want to make sure your Xbox profile is tied to Mixer.
Whenever you go live on Mixer, whoever has added you as a friend on Xbox will see a pop up of your stream on their dashboard. They can click on this and will be taken to your stream. All within Xbox.
Whenever you can play with new people on Xbox. Have them friend you and when you go live they will see it. Driving more views to your stream.
If you’re saying to yourself “I only have a few friends,” remember that just 4 or 5 extra viewers can make all the difference of ranking high so others can find you.
Build Audiences On Other Platforms
This strategy remains a key component of driving more views to your stream no matter where you are streaming.
Streaming platforms are not good search engines. You need to constantly work on growing your brand and your audience on other platforms.
Since streaming is such a visual medium I would recommend starting with YouTube and Instagram. Re purpose the content you’re already creating and publish it on other platforms to build your audience.
Clutch is another great place to build an audience for your stream. Upload your clips, share them with gamers and build a great community of gamers for your stream.
Remember the goal is to get more views to your stream. You need to be building an audience everywhere you can. As you do your views on Mixer will increase.
If you implement these strategies you will get more views on Mixer. The name of the game in streaming is viewers. Always be striving to increase your viewers and you can become a successful streamer.
