What Top Industry Leaders Are Saying About Live Streaming
Anna Francis, content manager at Search Laboratory, shares, “Brands will create more videos, utilize live streaming apps, and really embrace interactive features within content” (link). Live stream is one of the most interactive tools available on social media. It is helping turn the internet into more than just an abstract database of information. Instead, the internet is becoming a place, a sort of virtual reality, because of live streaming.
Mark Zuckerberg himself has even participated in several recent live stream Q&A events using Facebook Live. He shares more about his feelings toward live streaming in a Townhall Q&A live stream from Berlin: “Live video is one of the things that I’m most excited about because it’s so raw and visceral. … There’s no way when you’re doing something live that it can be curated, by definition it’s not. So it’s very freeing. It gives people the ability to express what’s going on in their life now, what they care about… And I think that’s going to be really powerful.”
Live streaming is a special and unique platform. It can be used for anything from sharing memories with loved ones to marketing your brand. If you neglect to follow the numbers and heed the advice of experts across the globe, then your business will miss out on a sensational opportunity to flourish on the web.
Why You Should Act Now
Live streaming isn’t going out of style any time soon. But its potency as a marketing tool is at its peak right now, before your competitors start using it. Although several major brands out there flaunt their live stream status on apps like Periscope and Facebook Live, few small businesses are actually getting in on the action. So now is your chance.
If you procrastinate in starting your own live streaming campaign any longer, you may lose the opportunity you have now. Once more and more businesses and personalities realize the value of live streaming, they will be the ones to benefit most from this upcoming trend, not you. Hundreds of expert websites, brands, and individuals agree that live streaming is the way of the future. The future is right in front of you: on websites like Facebook and YouTube, and apps like Periscope. So what are you waiting for?
Who do you think had a better chance of getting their skin in the game and producing a viral YouTube video: the hundreds of creators who started in 2005 and 2006, or the the millions who are trying to catch up in 2016? The principle is simple: the longer you wait, the less power you will have in the live streaming market. So take action now by checking out this once in a lifetime opportunity from Valoso to get your business on the fast track with Live Streaming.
