How Best to Use Twitch Clips

Clips are a great way to promote your stream on Facebook, Discord, or Twitter. They give an actual representation of your content and your setup. High-quality clips can also potentially go viral, which will expand your audience quickly. Just be sure to deliver on any promises you make in your promotions. Always strive to produce high-quality Twitch content

In addition to promotion, you can also download clips to use in future YouTube compilations. Short snippets of highly entertaining game-play can make for an exciting video that many should love. You can also use clips as intros or outros to your videos to entice viewers to visit your stream.

Take note of which of your clips get the most views. Seeing what goes over well with them will give you an insight into what your viewers like to see. You can incorporate similar moments into your upcoming streams. Don’t try to “recreate” the moment or overdo it, as that can become old. Instead, use the information to learn what excites your viewers.
