Live streaming is one of the new media outlets that anyone can use for free on platforms like Twitch and YouTube. However, live streaming has also become a quality entertainment for the artists to host their concerts to the fans that can join the show while watching the stream from home. This has opened up new opportunities for people who want to grow their audience online. It is a medium to quickly share videos and get the viewers’ attention on the streaming platforms. Here are some of the benefits of live streaming that artists should know to host online concerts.
Artists can pick their own time
The basic advantage of online streaming is that you can stream on your time. The viewers join according to the time of streamers, not their own. This also lets you know that the streamers care about you and find your content relatable and entertaining. You will find viewers who are okay with you posting content whenever you want.
Still not overcrowded
Live streaming will become populated as more people set up their streaming channels. However, the population of live streamers is still not high. You have high chances of gaining traction with a worldwide audience waiting to find something interesting. Later the streaming platforms can change their algorithms to promote ads. For now, you still have a chance to grow organically.
Grow with your niche
Online users are always searching for new content under different niches. It is given that the people who are not interested in your topic will not join your streams. But you can gain major traction on your channel if you make your niche clear and proudly present it. Also, as you keep streaming, you will have more people interested in your work, even though they find channels out of nowhere.
Streaming platforms are available for free or at affordable prices. You do not need a paid tool to start streaming. You can use a laptop or even your smartphone to connect with your live audience quickly. Moreover, streaming platforms offer several earning opportunities if your audience is generous enough to make donations while you are living.
Instead of recording a video of your performance to post it later on YouTube or other channels, you can go live and perform right at the moment. You can interact with your audience live and let them be the first ones to view your performance simultaneously. Performing live will also showcase your authentic skills so your audience can trust you and stay loyal to you for a long time.
As we said before, live streams can help you interact with your audience in real-time. You can host QnA sessions with your fans, take their requests to sing their favorite songs, do an office tour, etc. You can also present your ideas in front of them in real-time and get votes to know how many of them are interested to hear from you on your ideas to grow your art and business.
