Livestreaming has become more important now during this year of 2020. Since people can’t come to your business due to having to close it down by the rules, such as people in restaurants, or in the entertainment industry. So being visible has become way more important now than before. But how do we become more visible and how do we show ourselves and show our brand the best way possible. Well, one way for that is live streaming.
Going live as your business shows people what you do these days. Either show your work on what you’re working on Or just talk about your business and what you plan to do now. This sets interesting factors. If for example you own a restaurant and you got a new recipe, via a live stream you can make people excited to go and buy it, or order it from your restaurant.
But what instead you are a, for example, an entertainer, One way of what you can do is stream., go live and do a live show, make music, dance. Live streaming can be used for anything you like. I personally am a huge fan of watching people on live streams to know about their business.
Webinair – Livestream designNow does it work for every platform that’s out there?
Sadly, not every single one. You can use it however on Facebook / Twitch or Youtube. Soon there will be Behance as well. ( I’m currently testing out Behance myself. ) There is a way to do it with Instagram but it’s not very stable.
Instagram on PC
Instagram has historically always been a mobile-only platform, and that includes limitations on their streaming. As of right now, as near as I can tell, there are only two ways to broadcast to Instagram via a PC. One is to use their official cross-compatible app that only works in Windows 10. The other is to emulate the app using a phone emulator like Bluestacks. Or use OBS with Airserver to stream your Phone to your laptop.
What do you need:
- A mic ( headphones with mics work )
- Headphones ( if you don’t want other sounds )
- Livetsream overlays ( soon on the website )
- Streamkey ( The websites you use will give this to you when you go live)
What can be used as extra?
- Emotes ( if you are affiliate on Twitch this can benefit you, Users pay for the use of your emotes )
- Discord ( if you stream with multiple people, smart for podcasts )
- A professional Mic
- Epidemic Sounds ( copyright free music )
- Epoc Cam Pro ( iPhone app to simulate a webcam for OBS )
As you can see, you don’t need a lot to get started. . It’s very much up to you.
I hope this post has been helpful. The product launch will be live soon with plenty of colors and ideas to choose from. But if you prefer to get started now, send me a message and I’ll get to work now.
