How To Manage Low Viewership Count In The Summer


Sun is out y'all. Summer is finally here and people are looking to go out and enjoy the warm weather. June, July, and August will see a dip in active users across the board, which make these months the best time to self-evaluate while you focus on your core community. Review your own content, whether it's past streams, VODs, or your socials. Take notes on what you like, what you don't like, what works and what doesn't. If you won't watch yourself, why would anyone else?


StoneMountain64 has repeatedly shared that one of the most important things he did to be successful was to take notes on his own content and constantly improve on it and create new iterations.

These are the top 5 things I recommend streamers do in the summer months to use their time wisely: 


1. Focus on your core audience by creating community events for them and get to know them on a new level. 

2. Try new games out and test your core audiences' reaction to them.

3. Work on creating new collaborations and/or partnerships.

4. Learn a new skill (video editing, sketch comedy, photography, juggling, whatever you're interested that might supplement your streams!) 

5. Plan for the fall/winter months.


This is the best time to take a moment to reflect on your journey so far, and set some goals for the fall. Things will start to pick up again in September!
