4 Tips For Creating Your Own Live Stream

Entertainment Blog

Have you decided to get into live streaming but not sure how to do it? If so, it is going to help to know the following tips that will help you when starting out with this unique form of online entertainment.

Come Up With A Rundown

It is important to have an idea of what you are going to do when you start your live stream, rather than wing it and try to improvise along the way. Come up with a rundown of what you plan to discuss so that segments are tight and they move along quickly. The goal is to keep viewers engaged the entire time since people will be watching the live stream as it happens and the replay later. 

Use Graphics For Transitions And Chapter Markers

Live streams can be quite lengthy because they are unedited live performances. However, graphics can make it easy for viewers to follow along with what you are doing in a few ways. If a viewer joins your live stream in the middle of a broadcast, graphics can identify the topic that your live stream is about at that very moment without having to do much reading. If someone is viewing the live stream on a replay, the graphics can help someone scrub to a specific part of the video so that they can easily find what they want to watch. If your entire live stream is just a talking head, the process of guessing and checking will end up causing frustration and make a viewer stop watching. 

Create Your Hashtags Prior To Going Live

Even though the content of your live stream has yet to be created when you start a live stream, you'll want to use metadata and hashtags to make your live stream easy to find. This should be easier to do by creating a rundown since it will give you a general idea of what you'll be doing and give you time to find the right hashtags and metadata to associate with your stream from the first second that it is live. 

Create A Schedule

The difficult part of live streaming is that there are not typical schedules that people know to follow. That's why it is important that you make your schedule very clear to your viewers so they know when to tune in next. Give specific days and times of the week, and then keep those consistent from week to week. This will help you create a loyal following that tunes in every time you go live.

Entertaining Small Children

After I started investing more and more time into parenting, I realized that there were some real issues with what my children were watching on television. It occurred to me that they really thought about their entertainment for hours, days, and weeks that followed their experience, so I really did an overhaul of their screen time. We started talking with our kids about the best programs for their minds, and focusing on eliminating shows that wouldn't be beneficial in any way. This website is all about entertaining small kids and knowing how to improve their lives through tv, books, and media.
