Unfortunately, the work of many aspiring streamers ends up being tiresome and ultimately futile, as they do not seem to get a chance to be seen by their audience they need to become successful. This is why different forms of boosting and fake engagement are popular.
Artificially boosting your follower/viewer count can help you temporarily reach the top of:
- all the streams;
- Twitch main page recommendations;
- recommendation lists for specific categories;
- live streams in the Discover section.
Not only will an artificial viewers boost increase all major indicators of your channel and the current stream, but it also will grow your loyal audience, as a percentage of users who will have noticed your stream will follow your channel, provided that you manage to raise their interest with high-quality content.
Then the social proof principle starts working in your favor: people are much more likely to join the streams of users in recommendations, and are more eager to follow channels with larger online presence.
