Couple of my friends that have started streaming have been asking where and how-to promote their channel, find streaming buddies and network. I thought why not share this for others also. So here is in my opinion the 3 best twitch streaming communities, you totally should be part of! 🙂
Streaming can be a bit lonesome at times. You might have already created your layouts and pictures for marketing by yourself like many do. You might also already have some questions that can't actually be answered by looking at the hundreds of tutorials in different websites or Youtube. You want some humanly touch and possibly a streamer friend to collaborate with!
That's when it's time to find good streaming communities that can help you out. Many of the streaming communities gathered in this article also offer some kind of advertising solutions where you can post your stream or celebrate some awesome milestones that has happened in your stream. 🙂
Streaming community 1: Twitch Streamers And Networking (TSAN)
Twitch Streamers And Networking (TSAN) is kinda of a new kid on the streaming community but it's an awesome community to be in! They are currently the most active group of the Streaming Community in the FB. They have weekly running contests where you can get free visibility also.
