Livestreaming is a powerful tool that can be used to build up your digital strategy. But that is just what it is, a part of the strategy.
Livestreaming should not be your whole digital strategy.
Even if you follow every rule and best practice, your marketing efforts will fall short if you don’t have a solid foundation to build your livestreaming, and other social media efforts, on top of.
More times than not, the basics of digital strategy are entirely missing, so when one strategy doesn't make up for what's missing, it's abandoned.
Without the basics, you will fall short of your goals and not even know why.
Here are some considerations to help you maximize your video content and pair your efforts together in a way that has a positive impact all around:

Using livestreaming as a digital tool can be incredibly valuable to crank your digital efforts to the next level, magnify your influence, and engage even more effectively with your followers.
Many organizations see a much better engagement on video content than other types of content on social media. Below is one example where Facebook reach was 328% MORE on video content. Facebook engagement was 288% MORE. The page itself has a total following of about 17k on Facebook and 4k on Instagram.
Notice the spike in reach that can be seen in November (below) when more engaging (video) content was used to reach their audience - it looks like a mountain range with an almost immediate spike!
Next is another example of a page I manage that has roughly 300k across Facebook and Instagram. Again, we see that video content gets over 300% more engagement and over 250% more reach - than ALL of the other options combined!
Leveraging video content isn't just beneficial, it's a must if you're looking to take your digital strategy to the next level.
