If you want to widen your reach and get more people involved with your choir, live streaming your in-person performances can be an excellent way to reach those goals. In this post, we will quickly debunk the myth that livestreaming and virtual events were a 'Covid thing' by sharing with you some of the many benefits livestreaming will bring to your choir.
1. Grow your audience
Livestreaming has the incredible potential for reaching more people than one may think. Some people might be interested in your choir's content but may not be able to attend your in-person due to other commitments. Live streaming eliminates this obstacle and widens the audience, allowing them to watch from anywhere in the world as long as they have internet access - which is pretty much everyone nowadays!
2. Increased revenue streams
Live streaming gives you more ways to make money. Not only can you charge people to view your stream, but you can convert the stream into an on-demand event, which can also become a revenue source. Plus, on FeelitLIVE, you can easily add other features like donations, e-store, or live auctions, to maximize your revenue even further.
3. Spark real-time engagement
Livestreaming, when done on an engagement-focused platform, gives you the tools you need to engage with your fans in a meaningful way. You can now do much more than just live broadcast your choir's performance. You can also engage in real-time with your audience through many features such as live feeds, chat rooms, emoji reactions, sound effects, polls, games, video interactions, e-stores, live auctions, and more.
4. Easy and much less technical than you think
Contrary to popular belief, anyone can livestream a performance. You just need a webcam connected to your audio equipment or laptop, an encoder (many free options available), and a reliable choir tech platform like FeelitLIVE that makes it easy to get started—and is there to help if need be.
5. Audience tracking and feedback
Livestreamed events let you collect crucial demographic information about event attendees. You can also get real-time feedback on how viewers interact with your content and even run polls to understand what they like and how you can improve future events.
6. Privacy and Security
Piracy is at an all-time high, with more than 80% of global online piracy coming from illegal streaming services, with pirated video material totaling over 230 billion views a year.
Keeping your content private on free platforms like Facebook or YouTube is almost impossible, making it easy for people to steal it. Professional livestreaming platforms like FeelitLIVE give creators the power to control who watches their content and protect it through password protection, tokenized security and access, and domain referrer restrictions, among other features.
7. Streamlined hosting experience
As you can tell by now, there are many benefits to livestreaming your content, but perhaps the most important and convenient one is that you can do everything in one place. From creating and ticketing to engaging, monetizing, and broadcasting, choir tech platforms like FeelitLIVE simplify the process of hosting virtual and hybrid events so you don't have to juggle multiple systems to bring it all together.
