Currently, more businesses and brands are experimenting with live streaming and the benefits that it provides for not only the business, but for consumers as well. For instance, Apple recently announced their new iPhone at a conference that was live streamed which allowed consumers from all over the world, that couldn’t attend the event, to tune in. Aside from these benefits, live streaming provides a sense of excitement for your audience. The live stream itself is inherently about community. It makes your customers feel inclusive and exclusive simultaneously.
Aside from the live stream itself, businesses can record the broadcast and upload it onto a platform such as YouTube. This allows people who couldn’t tune into the live event to watch it at a later date. Once the recorded stream is uploaded onto YouTube, embed it onto your website and all the social media sites associated with your business. Live streaming also allows businesses the opportunity to interconnect and inter-promote their platforms. For instance, encouraging the audience to tweet questions or “like” you on Facebook is an effective method to quickly grow your social media presence with people who already care about your brand.
1. Users Consume Content On YOUR Time, Not On Their Time
The biggest and the most powerful advantage of live streaming services is that viewers consume content on your time, and not on their time. This means that you are only engaging with people who find your content interesting and useful. You are automatically targeting content at the people who are more likely to convert and follow you further. No other content marketing channel is capable of achieving what live streaming does.
2. It’s Affordable
If you think about it, live streaming is incredibly affordable in comparison to most other marketing strategies; and it’s way more effective. The benefits of acquiring such a vast reach of viewers for such minimal costs, warrants the spend a no-brainer. The production of TV commercials or Live Broacasts to telvision can go into the millions, whereas Live Streaming Companies are now able to offer the same quality of broadcast and coverage, but to keen viewers scrolling through their most addictive media platforms such as facebook and youtube.
3. Real-Time Engagement
Ther’s something about the word “LIVE” that just creates excitement. It’s not a video that was produced or an event that happened a week ago. It’s NOW! And if you don’t jump on the boat, you will miss out! One of the biggest reasons why live streaming companies is continuously making a dent in content marketing, is due to their ability to offer real-time user engagement and join a direct conversation with the influencer. Not only does it provide real-time engagement benefits to users, it also gives an opportunity for businesses to offer live support, Q&A sessions, and office tours.
4. New Revenue Authorities
If your event relies on advertising and sponsorships to cover your costs, live streaming is a fantastic additional source of revenue. You can offer a sponsorship package for a single advertiser to have their name and logo appear throughout the entirety of your event or you can consider charging viewers a small fee in exchange for access to the live feed. You can even partner with an organization to allow them to use the live stream of your event as content on their own site. Because live streaming can be a relatively inexpensive activity to execute, you should more than recoup the costs of the streaming equipment & crew through the profits collected from this type of sponsorship and affiliation.
5. It Grows Your Audience
The internet is an immeasurably large place. A live streaming event gives access to consumers who wouldn’t have otherwise participated in the announcement, forum, conference, launch or whatever event your business chooses to host. For businesses that engage in live streaming events with question and answer sessions, this allows the viewer from home to participate. People who never otherwise would’ve engaged with your content, suddenly tune in because it’s LIVE; and.. if the content is interesting, they will follow you on all your platforms thereafter. Whether you're looking to increase physical attendance for future events or are just looking for an additional revenue stream to help offset the costs of running a conference, a live streaming company is an effective choice in order to achieve this.
