      Entertaining Content

      Live Streaming is a form Entertainment. In order to ever be successful in this industry your live stream needs to be entertaining and engaging to your viewers. And it's one of the key problems we see with new and even long time creators. A lot of people have the mindset that they can turn on their camera, play a game, and viewers will just show up. And years ago, that might have been enough. But that's just not how it works today. You need to create content that viewers will enjoy watching and can engage with.

      Critiquing your Channel

      It's a fact that over time, we as humans, become stuck in our ways. Accustomed to Routine and wonder why we are no longer achieving the success we desire. This is the same with Live Streaming, and it's why you need to watch your own content. It may be a difficult task at first, but watching your own content allows you to see what your viewer is experiencing. And can lead to some wonderful breakthroughs and epiphanies in what you can change in order to develop better content, engage more with your community, and expand your audience. So be sure to take time out of your day to Watch your Own VOD's or Videos.
