More than 500 hours of video are uploaded on YouTube every minute but live streams transform videos into a more interactive experience. Live stream can be recorded through webcam, mobile cam or encoder streaming. You should be prepared with the title, description with important keywords, thumbnail image and more. Choose a time when most of your audience is online and make sure to optimize your setup beforehand. Treat this virtual event as any other event and promote it; as there would be no use of going live without any audience. Engage more with the audience in the stream by replying to their comments, shouting out names and building anticipation.
