Effective Live Streaming

Ideas From The Expert

So you've decided to bring your business online. Good now let's look at your options.

Livestream with your face only..

There's Instagram Live, Facebook Live and Youtube Live.  
I guess you didn't need to know this from me. You already know these things right?
Requirements: Good Lighting, Good Microphone.

Livestream with slides...

This depends on:
1.  Number of people you're talking to
2. If you want the livestream to be exclusive to a group or public
3. You're using a Mac, Windows or Mobile

Livestream with slides...privately

Everybody's using a computer

Just use Facebook Messenger - and make sure people are not using Mobile Phones.
Facebook Messenger can do a screenshare option if everybody's using a computer.

Someone people are using mobile
Use Zoom, for free - with a limit of 45minutes per livestream.  

How to Use Zoom meeting:
1. You inform the group about the meeting time.
2. You just send everyone a meeting link

3. They click it. (even before meeting time)
4. Whatever device they have - they'll be able to join in.

Just use the SHARE button to share your presentation slides. Of course we assume you're using a computer to show your presentation. I haven't tried  Zooming from a mobile and presenting slides at the same time. I'll let you know once I've done it.

Livestream with slides...publicly

Though many people aim for "free software", like  Zoom, - sometimes this is not enough.  Some of you want to Facebook Live at the same time.  Problem with Facebook Live is you can't share your presentations yet. You need other software to make this happen.


FB Live with slides, publicly, paid & easy

If you're already using Zoom, -you can upgrade to their add on "Webinar" - and it lets you send your Zoom, - meeting to Facebook live. All the features of Zoom,  plus a public audience.

If you're going to do this for only 2-3 months, it's worth the additional $40/month (P 2,000/month) you need to pay. This is on top of the $14.99/monthly (P 750/month) that zoom requires.  

I used to pay this amount, given that I would earn more than the total expense is only
P 2,750/month.  Since I don't have to travel, I  don't have to buy extra coffee in shops.

It's worth it. Specially the next reason why w/c tells you why Zoom works well.

Why Zoom anyway?

I've been live streaming since 2010 - back then people where still using normal "internet" and not "fiber" internet.   I've used so many services throughout the years and logged more than 600+ episodes of livestreams in both YT and FB.

Zoom is unique because all your conversations work even if someone has a slow internet connection. This doesn't work all the time---when the internet speed is still stuck on year 1999 speeds.  But most of the time- the connection works.


The reason for this is - Zoom sends all your video and audio to their servers - and it's their computers that take care of processing the video. Your phone or computer does NONE of the processing.


Net effect: Everybody gets a fast meeting experience. Faster than Skype or Microsoft Teams.

Is there any other option?

Yes, if you're fine with learning new software or app - there are 2 options.
