How to make live video engaging?
In the new era, new fuel for communication is live video. We communicate with each other through social media, but the point is how to make live videos engaging.
Do we connect to the conversation?
The answer depends on the person communicating. A good communicator can make a boring topic catch your eye, and a lousy communicator can make you yawn in something interesting.
From school classes, office meeting, bloggers blog, vlog and all the video calls the only thing that can make you sustain and continue to be on is the interest that you get and how engaging live video is. The person speaking should make a conversation because no monologues are entertained by people engaging in live video, what goes trendy and exciting is the two-way conversation being a patient listener to a monologue is a lecture, not something exciting and entertaining.
How to make you live video interesting and connective?
Train your audience-
To find a loyal audience, make them engaged by teaching them not like a dog but with something exciting and vitality that force them to lend their ears. Make them know the pattern to get connected, ask question etc
To train your customers
- Provide Structure
- Open Up Possibilities
- Remove Chaos
To increase engagement ask for engagement
Instruction is something we people don’t appreciate, don’t state but ask questions to catch the interest because when you ask, the audience might have the same problem, so it helps them connect well and make them curious to stay for a longer time. Be active to your audience from all source for engagement be it Instagram, youtube etc.
Ask them specific questions and make them plot a figure before you answer these states well because when they think it means they are connecting.
Types of Engagement?
When you ask the audience they connect, ask them to share like comment this not just catch the interest but make other people connect this because anything that is discussed it stays in mind for longer than anything just heard. So shout for attention and make them comfortable to pitch their questions.
If you can’t engage genuinely don’t go live-
We cant be at the place where we don’t vibe similarly don’t go live if you genuinely don’t want to or to have a fam jam don’t go live make something capture minds.
Trigger your Audience
I say this not to poke but to increase your communication. When you trigger the audience it not might have a straight impact to content but something interesting and regular like food, pets, music or anything that you know everyone has opinions to give and keeps them vibe in well.
Create base to the topic
Before you get straight to the topic, ask a related question that might make the audience suspicious and link in the subject before giving the knowledge. Like if your case related music then ask the audience about the genre of music, the taste they like, favourite musician or what they see for taste in music etc.
Get personal and be human
You might feel of being professional, up to date or talk formally. Still, I will suggest you be a human first, because then you find easy to attack the audience mind and even they are more tuned if things go little easy, here you know what they want, how they think so you prepare your content in the same manner. When you talk about your personal life along with business people might connect well and deep.
Talk about your experience, life lesson, mistakes that you did or things learnt in the process may be your experience is much more knowledgable for people out there.
Optimize your setup
You can’t edit or redo something once it’s live. Before you broadcast, go through the following setup checklist. Frame your shot. Make sure nothing is distracting, inappropriate, or confidential in the backdrop.
Adjust lighting. Subjects should be well lit, not backlit. Look out for shadows, too.
Check audio. Run a mic or sound check to ensure you have optimal acoustics—a record in a quiet spot, away from sirens, weather, or noisy bystanders.
Charge batteries. And stay connected to a power source if possible.
Test your connection. Run a speed test with speedtest.net or other tools. Your connection should be able to support about 10MB of data per minute.
Turn off interruptions. All notification sound effects and ringers should be turned off.
Provide water. Anticipate coughs and scratchy throats ahead of time. Accessible tissues are not a bad idea, either.
Level of engagement
Where are you watching from?
Do you like pineapples over pizza etc
Ask your audience what makes them stuck about the topic of the day
Go more detailed and grasp the mind
Make them talk to each other
Connect them with shout outs and appreciation
Be confident enough in what you say
It would be best if you were confident because your confidence makes the person believe, and your thoughts are more evident as you choose the right words. When you speak with confidence, it automatically enhances your personality.
All these will make your communication better and make you more connected with the audience. All these steps can make your live video engaging and help you stay tunned with people, and they will find your content worth the time. To keep it ongoing keep interacting your customers daily is important and talk about topics that you have detailed information because the unanswered question might make a wrong impact on your image.
