Why you need to be live streaming

One of her top ways to showcase content is through live streaming, which is broadcasting your content in real-time. There are so many platforms where people can go live and it’s the most efficient way to visually communicate with your audience without doing much production work. Marielou recommends incorporating live streaming into your strategy, because with it, you can become a real person who interacts with your audience in real-time and strengthen your community more effectively.

How to live stream with no audience

It can be scary to go live if you are unsure you will have an audience. However, it actually teaches you the essential skills of a content creator, such as live-to-tape. This is a great time to make content about news and updates, tutorials, answer previous lingering questions, and address potential questions.

3 tips for better performing content 

You don’t want to spend time making content that isn’t helpful. Marielou shares a few tips that will help your content perform better. 

  1. As there’s a large amount of information that people need to take in everyday, your content has to get to the point ASAP to attract people’s attention. 
  2. The videos that perform the best are those that have moving graphics (which can easily be made in Prezi Video).
  3. Finally, don’t try to cover everything in one video. Instead, focus on one topic and keep your video short, and make a series of different videos.
