Your Twitch Panels is where people can find out more information about you and your stream. Spend time on your Twitch panels to make yourself stand out. Write meaningful sections and customize your panel images to help represent who you are. Try to have as much style and personality as possible. Panel Settings
Common panels used by streamers are:
- About me
- Streaming Gear
In this section, you really want to tell a story about yourself. Give some information about yourself. Everyone is unique, this is the perfect place to give some back story to yourself and your stream to make your channel unique.
You should have a panel outlining the rules of your chat and stream. This is a good place to let people know if you want to keep the chat free of swearing and bullying. It can also be used to let viewers know if there are any topics you don’t want discussed in chat ie. Politics, Religion etc.
This is where you should post links to any social pages you want the viewers to check out, including Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter etc. It’s up to you whether you want to create separate socials for your Twitch or use your personal socials.
People want to know when to expect to see you. If you don’t have a schedule yet, you could let your viewers know roughly what times and which days. If this isn’t possible, you could discuss why this is the case. If you do have a schedule already, a great extension to use is: Streamlabs Stream Schedule & Countdown. This extension will list the time you are live in the viewers’ time zone.
People may be interested in knowing what sort of setup you currently have. Write out a list of the components in your PC and which mic and camera you are using and any other peripherals.
Sometimes when viewers find a streamer they enjoy watching, they like to donate money to them. One of the methods of setting this up is creating a PayPal account and linking it with Streamlabs (you can use other platforms too). This creates a shareable link you can provide to them in the form of https://streamlabs.com/username.
It’s a good idea to spend time on your Twitch panels to make yourself stand out. Be unique and original when writing them. Maybe something you have wrote in your panels will spark up a conversation with a viewer!
