Live streaming is basically broadcasting live video content to an online audience. This type of content is a great avenue for businesses, that have only become available due to the recent social media landscape. It gives businesses a chance to engage with their customers in real-time, build brand awareness, and even increase sales (depending on the service/product being sold).
With live-stream videos, your customers and potential customers can interact with you in a personal and authentic way, creating a sense of trust and loyalty. Especially since people value knowing who is actually behind the brand.
Creating and staging a live stream video is focused on two things, in front and behind the camera directions. Live streaming requires a little more than your usual video.
Planning this out means you have to determine what you will be doing on camera, what type of people you need surrounding you during this to get just the right angles and shots, and where it will be streamed.
Secure location and materials, prep equipment, and organize products and demonstrations for the shoot, including extra help if needed. This ensures that everything is in order and ready for a successful live stream video production.
Think of live streaming like an event, you need to be on point and on your toes, but also you need to take into consideration that even the lighting and positioning needs to be ok since it is a video that can be reused if needed.
Live streaming provides a cost-effective way for your business to engage with customers, increase brand awareness, and drive sales. Additionally, live streaming also creates a sense of authenticity and transparency, which can help to build trust with your customers.
The equipment you need for live streaming depends on the platform being used and the level of production quality you want. At a minimum, you will need a smartphone or computer with a webcam, a stable internet connection, and a microphone. For higher-quality production, you may also need a camera, lighting equipment, and a professional microphone. Additionally, it’s important to have a quiet and well-lit space for filming.
The live stream’s success depends on you. If you are just focused on brand awareness then tracking the social media metrics and other digital metrics can help you determine that, but if you are aiming for sales, then sales should be the metrics you look at.
At the end of the day success depends on the goal you set out even before shooting the video.
When choosing a streaming platform for your live stream video, consider factors such as audience size, budget, features, and ease of use. Popular options include YouTube, Facebook, Twitch, and Vimeo.
To create a professional-looking set for your live stream video, consider the backdrop, lighting, and props. You may also want to incorporate branding elements, such as logos or colors, to reinforce your brand identity.
