Your first step is the preliminary planning of the event. Determine what your next steps will be by answering these questions.
Where will your event take place?
Is the live event taking place at one location, or will your performers be joining in from different locations?
Who will be the videographer?
Hiring a professional will no doubt produce a more enjoyable event. However, it may not be feasible if you are live streaming, and your performers are in different locations.
Live Stream or Pre-recorded?
Livestreaming means simultaneously record and broadcast as it happens.
Pre-recorded, is just that, you can record the event and decide when, where, and how you want your audience to view it.
Both require a platform that allows the media, live or recorded to stream (deliver) the content to your computer, phone, or TV and not have to wait for a download.
Common forms of streaming content are Podcasts, webcasts, movies, and music videos.
Will you sell tickets?
When deciding on your ticket price consider any costs you may need to cover, such as production, hosting, etc.
Scheduling your date
Plan a date to avoid potential conflicts your audience might have.
Choosing a date will also depend on the option you chose to deliver your event.
Your second step is to create the event.
Choose a Platform
You’ll need to decide where you want to host your show. There are several live streaming or pre-recorded options.
Start by creating your own youtube channel.
You can live stream or upload your video – make it private and provide a password to your audience.
Create an account on this video-sharing platform allows you to create high-quality videos to share with your audience including live streaming.
