Marketing is just as important to your live streaming business as any other business in the world. Due to the nature of the content, it can be easy to see this business model as different. However, it is not separate, and if you don’t plan or find ways to market it, you won’t be successful. The days are gone where you can expect “drive-by traffic.” You need to get your content in front of your target audience yourself, and that is through proper marketing
The following are six tips to help market and promote your live streams:
Use E-mail Campaigns
Create a newsletter or free opt-in that your viewers will enjoy in exchange for their e-mail address. This way, you can always send them notifications when you go live or share content on your website or social media pages. This is also a great way to form a more personal connection with your audience, as each e-mail you send is personalized to individual viewers.
Create And Share Social Media Posts
Always tease or share your live stream on other social media platforms. This means as a streamer, you likely also have a Facebook page, Instagram, or Twitter handle. So first, find the social media platform you know your audience uses the most and create unique content. Then link and share information to your live streams.
Develop Retargeting Ad Campaigns
Take advantage of social media ads to share your live stream or other online content. Facebook live, for example, allows you to boost your stream while you are currently live to grow your audience. These ads are incredibly powerful as you can pick exactly who you want to see your content. Thus, narrowing down and marketing directly to your target audience increasing your click-through rate and audience potential.
Make A Personal Website
If you want live streaming to be a business, you need to create a professional website with your information and other content in the form of blog posts, graphics, or videos. This way, your audience can always find you no matter what platform you use. In addition, your website gives you full control over what you can market and is important for brand awareness.
Start A YouTube or TikTok
To be a streamer, you also need to produce solid content that your viewers can find and watch later. Starting a YouTube or TikTok channel is a great way to do this. The goal is to create 3 to 10 minutes videos showing your audience what they can expect from the live stream. This way, you can still market your content or have something for your audience to see even when you are not live.
Collaborate With Similar Streamers
Find other streamers in your niche or a similar one to take turns going live on each other’s channels and create unique and fun content together. Collaborations are a useful and fun way to grow your audience.
Marketing your live streaming business takes hard work and dedication to your craft. Don’t expect success If you hope people find you without promoting or marketing it. While you can still be successful in this highly competitive market, you must do the right work to get there, including following a few, if not all, of these marketing tips.
