Do you feel ready for the unpredictable and wild world of live streaming but are overwhelmed on where to start? We’ve got you covered with this livestream beginner’s guide!
KEEP IT SIMPLE
When you’re first starting out, keep your streaming set-up simple. More equipment can lead to more chances of glitching. Less is more.
BACK IT UP
Keep backups and spares of equipment, in case of accidents or unexpected events.
Periodically check your audio and visual to ensure they’re working as planned.
RUN THAT TEST
Do live test runs to see if everything is running as you’d like. It’s also a good opportunity to check the strength of your WiFi signal.
Sometimes it might be a good idea to a dry run if you’re not feeling 100% confident about an idea for a stream.
No matter how big or small your audience, make sure to interact. Make eye contact, answer questions, acknowledge their presence.
BE ON TIME
Set a consistent schedule that you can stick to, utilize your Discord, and post your streaming schedule.
Promote your stream via Discord, Twitter, Instagram, or any other social channels that you may have.
