Growing your business through livestreaming

Posted on Apr 12, 2017 by editor

With video marketing here to stay, why not take advantage of live streaming to grow your business.

Livestreaming is the ability to broadcast live straight to the internet through social media platforms. It is a tool that has been adopted by savvy tech-heads and it is powerful when reaching out to clients and building your customer base.

With over one billion users on Facebook and five hundred million Instagram users, why not take advantage of the ability to boost your business through livestreaming and gain a competitive edge?

As a marketing strategy tool, livestreaming is effective; it’s fast, it’s easy and it’s cost-effective. Livestreaming allows you to speak directly to your clients in real time. It does not require teams of individuals working on a marketing campaign; writing, proofing, designing and editing are not present in this process, saving you and your business time and money.

It is personable. Livestreaming is real. Customers can put a face to the name and can relate on a more human or intimate level to your business. The nature of livestreaming is fun; it gives customers an opportunity to see a side of your business they simply would not get to see just from visiting your website or following you on social media.

Take your customers behind the scenes, show them what goes into product development and allow them to be a part of the process. They will feel like they know your company and this is where trust can be built.

Using Facebook as a livestreaming platform gives you instant feedback. Data on the number of viewers and how long they are tuning in for are just some of the benefits that are not available as readily through any other marketing platform.

To use livestreaming effectively, consider the following:
