Be sure to engage any live viewers whether it’s giving them a shout out when they join or answering their questions in the chat.

To be able to ask viewers questions and get immediate feedback is really cool.

Using a selfie stick or a smartphone stabilizer will greatly increase the stability and quality of your videos and make your broadcast much more professional.

Stay in a quiet area when you broadcast. These days people expect and demand great audio quality. An external microphone will greatly improve the audio quality of your live broadcast.

14. It’s really important to signal right from the beginning of your live video that you want to engage.

  • Greet people who comment by name
  • Ask your readers where they’re watching from
  • Be ready to talk about who you are and how’s your life going.
  • Have some questions to ask your viewers . Have a question and answer session.


19.Ask those watching to share  ( call to action)

Ask those watching to share your video. This will help you reach more people. They can share it to their personal profile or a page.

20. Have people follow your page

One call to action that is worth doing is to call people to follow your page. I usually do it at the end of a video.
