Viewers are attracted to streamers with exciting personalities and entertaining or educative content.
In this article, we look at the top five tips for popular content for streaming video in 2021.
Top 5 Streaming Content Ideas
1. Demo for Products or Services
Have you ever found yourself searching the internet for information about a product you just purchased? People are 3X more likely to watch a video than reading text descriptions.
The same applies to your channel. Streaming demonstration videos is an excellent way to educate people about your brand. You can as well create a live streaming guide for products and services you endorse.
And we have all found ourselves perusing through the World Wide Web, looking for the right way to DIY or use something. How-tos and tutorials are commonly searched titles on the internet, thus, creating stream videos to show viewers how to perform specific tasks or use a product.
2. Q&A Session
Give your followers a chance to know you and establish yourself as an expert by streaming a Q&A or interview session. It encourages more people to join your broadcast and allows viewers to connect with you on a personal level.
Partner with an expert and offer in-depth insight on topics of interest. YouTube sensations Cannell and Benji Travis, founders of Video Influencers, invite top entrepreneurs, video streamers, and YouTubers to weekly interviews on their channel.
Take advantage of trending topics and the latest developments to create insightful content for your broadcast. Try streaming news as it trends if you lack time to scurry the web for ideas.
Catch breaking news and emerging stories to share timely information about your niche or industry. Viewers are likely to keep on checking their devices to be in the loop in case something ‘hot’ happens.
4. Free Webinar
Online presentations and meetings attract viewers interested in a specific topic. When done in real-time, people from all walks of life can converge to share insight and wisdom.
Inarguably, streaming on Twitch and other video platforms is the best avenue to turn your creativity into a career, find your audience, and share your message.
5. Run Games, Bets, or Challenges
All work and no play make Jack a dull boy. Organize something fun that your audience can enjoy. If you are streaming games, you can arrange a competition to encourage participation from your viewers while marketing a new gaming product.
Enhance interaction by requesting people to suggest challenges they would like to see you try (or fail). Combine this with culinary content and try eating sour jelly beans or licking a spoonful of powdered cinnamon.
Try streaming meaning, insight, and fun content concurrently. For instance, create a challenge to raise awareness about a social issue or raise funds for a worthy cause.
