You should also cover your overall influence. In addition to the number of viewers you have on your Twitch channel, let the potential sponsors know about your social media presence, your YouTube channel (if you have one), and the amount of engagement you generally receive from them.
Make sure you include what you are expecting if you promote their company. Are you looking for a one-time deal or do you want a sponsorship that is ongoing?

Are you expected to sell new and upcoming games through an affiliate link?

Frequently Asked Questions
How Do Twitch Streamers Get Gaming Sponsors?
If you have a professional channel that has a loyal audience, you can reach out to sponsors or wait for them to reach out to you. The key is to understand where your brands can benefit each other to increase value over time.
How Much Money Do Twitch Sponsors Pay?
The amount that you will be paid will depend on the sponsor, the size of your following, your content, and the amount of influence you have as a whole. Each will likely either give you a metric based on concurrent viewer counts or give you a one-time payment for a service.
How Do I Write a Sponsorship Proposal?
Every sponsorship proposal will vary from brand to brand. You will want to research the business and carefully craft a message that will show them that you understand their objectives and how you think that your brands can work together.
How Large Does My Twitch Channel Need to Be to Get a Sponsor?
The size you need to be as a Twitch streamer will depend on the specific sponsor you may potentially want to work with. The good news is that many sponsors are willing to work with small streamers as long as their channel is in line with their company’s values.
When looking for a stream to sponsor, many brands will consider a variety of factors. While large streamers will have a larger audience, smaller streamers tend to have a better relationship with their viewers. Sponsors look for the Twitch channels that best fit their marketing strategy.
Money may be another factor. Larger streamers tend to be paid more and if they are expecting more than what a specific company pays, that sponsor may choose to work with a smaller Twitch channel that they can afford.
If you find that you aren’t ready for s sponsorship, don’t give up hope. Instead, buckle down and look for new ways to grow your Twitch brand and bring in new viewers to your stream. As you connect with your audience and grow your social accounts, more opportunities will be made available to you.
Never compromise your values and keep your own brand trustworthy. Don’t settle for a sponsorship that you don’t believe in. When content creators do business with a company that viewers don’t trust, they tend to be wary of any other partnership that may come the streamer’s way in the future.
Instead, hold out until you connect with a brand or company that you are excited to promote. To get on their radar, start by engaging with their social media or enter their affiliate program and show them that you can drive traffic their way. Who knows? They may end up reading out to you for a Twitch sponsorship.
