Twitch Subscriber Badges (Sub Badges or Twitch Badges) are badges that Twitch streamers can make available to their communities once they have reached affiliate status. Once streamers have reached the status, they can upload their own Twitch badges to their dashboard. They are then visible to all subscribers of the channel as badges in the chat next to the name.
Loyalty Badges offer your most loyal community members the opportunity to “level”. With the first subscription you get the simple 1-month badge. After 3, 6, 9 and 12 months you get an “upgraded” version. Viewers who have already subscribed to your channel at least 12 times will have a much better badge next to their name in the chat than viewers with less months. This leads to a so-called “gamification” of your subscribers. Your subscribers want to subscribe more and more to get better badges. The longer they are in your community, the greater the will to get the next bigger badge to show you and the other viewers how loyal they are to you.
Due to the high importance of Twitch badges, it is especially important for us as a provider that each badge is of high quality and unique. The creation of such a Twitch badge set usually takes several hours and attention is paid to every single detail. Our designers do their best to make sure that the individual sub badges harmonize perfectly with each other and are ultimately loved by your viewers. When choosing your Twitch badges, you should make sure that they match your channel or streamed content in the best case. For example, if you mainly stream gaming content, you should choose sub badges that are related to it, such as controllers or weapons. If you stream mainly Just Chatting content, your Twitch badges may be a bit fancier, like unicorns or crazy hamsters. Of course, you can also choose badges that don’t fit your channel – in the end, you have to like them. However, you should always keep in mind that Twitch badges are very important for building your community and if there is a connection to your stream, it usually helps to build up the loyalty of your audience.
