How to increase engagement on live streams


Live streaming has become a popular way for people to share their talent, interact with their audience and create new and innovative ways to reach previously untapped audiences. With interactive live streaming, you can take your audience engagement to the next level by incorporating real-time interactions and feedback; Take song requests, respond to questions or even bring people up onto the stage with you to make the audience feel more included and give them a more personal experience than just online content.

Keeping your audience as involved and engaged is a continuing challenge for all creators. Here are some pointers to think about if you are trying to give your audience a live streaming unique experience:.

Plan Ahead

The key to a successful live stream is preparation. You should have a clear structure of what you want to accomplish and the content you are going to deliver at each stage of the stream. Before you go live, create some notes, a set list or a script that outlines what you will be delivering to the audience.

Keep it interesting

If your live stream is boring, your audience is likely to tune out. Keep things interesting by changing it up. One idea is to stop and answer some questions from the chat or bring members of the audience into the stream to share the experience with them. You could also give shoutouts to viewers who are giving Tips or feedback in the chat.

Be Authentic

Authenticity is the key to building a strong following. Don’t be afraid to show your personality and be yourself. Remember, if you are charging to watch your streams or encouraging tips then it is important to keep content exclusive and give your followers an obvious reason to come to your live streaming platform.

Stay Engaged after the stream ends

Engagement doesn't end when your Live stream is over. Take a look through the chat after you have ended the stream to thank your audience, respond to feedback or tease more live streams in the future. We recommend that you recycle your live stream as rewatchable content, this happens automatically on Lounges.tv.
