Before you start streaming on Twitch, it’s important to fill in the blanks in your profile. Let’s be honest, a blank channel with no bio, avatar, or any information can look kind of sus. To ensure users don’t leave your channel because it looks deserted, get to work on making it your own.
Start by filling out your bio, choose a profile picture or avatar, and add some custom assets to make it look more welcoming. You should take the time to define your brand and use this to dress your channel.
Choose a color palette you can incorporate across your channel and other related profiles along with graphics that represent your brand. You can use all of this as a guide for things like your Twitch banner, panels, and even the overlays you use while streaming. Save time and money by creating your channel’s assets using Placeit’s Twitch templates.
Some of the most important assets to make for your Twitch channel include:
Avatar or profile picture: This will go in your bio and give your profile a more finished look.
Twitch banner: Your banner will go in your channel home’s background and will aid in creating a more cohesive and branded look.
Twitch offline banner: When you aren’t live streaming, your offline banner will display in your home’s header. Your banner should say you’re offline and can also include info about when you’ll be back.
Twitch panels: These are located in the About tab of your channel and make it easier to share general information and links with your audience. You can create Twitch panels with basic info about yourself, links to your gear with affiliate codes, links to your social media profiles, and even information about where viewers can make donations.
Twitch overlay: During a live stream, you can customize what your stream looks like by utilizing an overlay. These can look like a frame, a ticker, a bottom bar, etc.
