What Makes A Good Live Stream?
In 2018, virtually anyone can live stream. All you technically need is a smartphone and a Facebook account. If done strategically, however, incorporating Live Streaming into your digital marketing toolkit will not only grow and engage your online audience, but also boost your sales growth.
Live Streaming starts with what you’re already doing as a business. Are you holding events, business meetings, or seminars? Do you have information that you’d like to compellingly communicate to your customers or online audience?
If the answer is yes, the next thing you need to consider is how you’re going to engage your audience live. Here are 3 things to consider:
