Live streaming is going to be huge in 2013 for brands: both as a marketing strategy and for service delivery. We’ve all heard already that video is important. So, why is LIVE video so much better?

  1. Buzz: turn a video into an event with chat and audience participation get’s attention.
  2. Community: create a two way conversation between you and your market while providing them with the opportunity to interact with one another while providing you with instant feedback.
  3. Connecting thought leaders with their fans: booking guest appearances will be easier to come by as appearing in a live event that involves interaction with your market is more attractive.
  4. Save time and energy in editing: pull in all necessary media (including graphics, video, and audio) while streaming and recording live allowing you to publish your video directly after your event for others to watch later.
  5. Structure and accountability: when others are expecting an event, added it to their calendar, and are excited to tune in you have to get over your fears and prepare your content. Systems are created with consistency and audiences are grown with persistence. You audience is also provided with a set time and place to watch and participate in your content.
