Hi, I’m Luria Petrucci from Live Streaming Pros and this show is Go Live Now in partnership with my favorite streaming software for the Mac, Ecamm Live.
So let’s talk about ideas.
Now, here’s the thing.
When you’re thinking about content, ideas for your videos or your live streams, you need to remember that you want to create engagement.
A lot of different people will create the same kind of topic format over and over and over.
And that’s great.
You can also work these different ideas into your content flow so that people feel a little bit more engaged.
They’re getting some variety and you’re testing the waters to see what your audience will react to.
You need to understand your audience in general in order for these ideas to work.
And testing and experimentation is often the key to understanding them.
Right. So let’s go through these different ideas.
And don’t forget, you can download the free PDF that has lots more ideas as well.
So #1 dos and don’ts.
Your audience is most likely trying to get past a hurdle or some kind of struggle.
So with dos and don’ts, you’re helping them actually get further, faster.
You’re helping them accomplish better things quicker than they would on their own.
And so dos and don’ts really help break it down.
If you want to accomplish X, Y, Z… Do this…Do not do that. Right.
Those are things that you can break down very quickly, very easily.
Use visuals on screen to break down the dos and don’ts and it’ll help your audience and give them massive, massive value.
#2 answering FAQs or viewer comments.
Doc Rock actually said before we got started that he goes through his comments streams in order to come up with topic ideas.
And this is one of the best ways that you can create valuable content that you know your audience wants to hear.
It doesn’t have to come from your brain.
It comes from your audience’s questions.
And that is a beautiful way to create content.
They’re already asking you questions.
So take that comment, turn it into a piece, a topic.
But you can also flat out do FAQs. Top 10 questions that you get asked.
You can screenshot viewer comments from a previous video and and share that.
That is a really great way to get engagement by the way.
If Doc Rock had commented then I screenshotted something,
I could display that right there on screen, making him feel part of the community like I care about him, because I do, right.
And that they feel special by being called out.
So you can do a lot of that great things.
Now, PRO TIP. Do not, do not go live with a live Q&A if you don’t have audience engagement just yet, if you have very low viewership or lack of engagement, don’t go live and just do an open Q&A.
That’s the one of the most uncomfortable things that you can do for yourself because they necessarily won’t be asking questions.
But you can prepare a Q&A by doing the FAQ style where you come up with prepared lists of questions that people are already asking you.
So you can do that, just don’t leave it open and not have anything prepared.
#3 tutorials or how to series.
Tutorials, how tos are some of the most popular content online because people are searching for that.
And that is a fantastic way to get people to pay attention to you, to subscribe to you, to find you.
This content is highly, highly discoverable and it can be a fantastic way to grow your audience.
So how tos tutorials, you can do this a number of different ways.
It can be about hardware, software, apps, anything product that you might have, physical product.
It could be about anything that you have.
And you can use an over the shoulder shot so that you can have that demo if it’s a physical product.
Or you could do like a pip screen like this if it’s a software or app demo.
Right. Or tutorial.
So you could do a lot with that content.
Product comparisons #4.
Now when your audience is trying to decide on a product, oftentimes comparing two or three different products can really help you or help them make a buying decision. And guess what?
If you have an affiliate link for those products that can help you generate revenue.
Right. It’s a win win, win win for the products, a win for the viewer and a win for you because you’re also making money.
But it also is very highly discoverable content as well.
So you can do product comparisons, break down the pros and the cons for each different product.
And again, this could be any number of different types of products or services.
All right. Next one is reaction videos.
Oh, my gosh.
This is definitely a popular thing to do at the moment.
I’ve been wanting to do them for quite a while, and I will dig into those very soon.
But reaction videos is where you’re reacting to somebody else’s content or video or something, and you can do this.
A lot of people take a negative approach, but you can do this in a very positive way that helps your audience learn, right.
You could take an educational approach to this so that you’re not just slamming people because we don’t want to do that, but we do want to make it entertaining and we want to help people and educate at the same time.
Oh, such a good way to grow your audience if you want to grow quickly.
Doing interviews can be a great way to do this because you’re bringing somebody on to your stream or to your video.
And they have they are an expert or a thought leader in their space or your space.
It’s adding value with a different perspective to your viewers.
But if you’re collaborating and somebody is going to share your link, you’re going to be able to draw an audience from their audience and hopefully get a few subscribers out of that.
Do that enough and it snowballs so that your audience growth soars.
#7 news about trending topics. All right.
If you’re not paying attention, now is the time to listen up.
This is huge.
When you tap into news industry news or whatever news your audience cares about trending topics in your industry, that is when you can really set your name in stone.
You can gather a new audience because people are looking for content about that topic.
You can create your set or set yourself as a thought leader in that space.
Don’t be afraid here to offer your opinion.
A lot of people are afraid in this particular scenario to offer their opinion because they don’t want to make waves or rock the boat. But guess what?
This is actually a perfect time to do so.
You create a stick or a bail mentality with your audience.
And you also can do it in a very you know, in a in a very easy way that will allow people to open up that conversation.
I always state like this is my opinion, but I want to hear your opinion.
You can invite conversation and engagement with your audience doing this, and that will grow your audience.
So this is a very, very effective piece of content.
Do not forget about this, if you know that something’s going on, jump to this, put out other videos like push out other videos.
This always takes priority in the moment.
That was a weak snap.
#8, what’s in my bag or backpack or your studio or whatever.
This is tapping into the voyeurism or into the behind the scenes kind of content.
But what’s in your bag or backpack or purse or whatever can actually be a really cool way to get audience engagement.
People love this stuff and it doesn’t matter what kind of content you create.
People like to see that more like that, more behind the scenes type of thing because they’re understanding more about you.
They’re getting tips for maybe what they should put in their own bags or things like that so you can adjust this topic as necessary for the topic or the content that you create.
But that type of thing will really, really be beneficial to getting people to pay attention and to engage and to ask questions, things like that.
All right next one is cheap versus expensive product.
Now, unlike the product comparison that I shared earlier, cheap versus expensive takes a bit of a different approach to this, where it is very like drastic levels. Right.
With product comparisons, you might have very similar services, similar costs, but cheap versus versus expensive is very different price points.
So you’re showing them each option on the end of each end of the spectrum.
And so that can really help people making buying decision.
And you can talk about whether it’s worth spending that extra money on the more expensive product.
So, again, this is a perfect opportunity for affiliate revenue as well.
And finally, but not least, I’ve got I’ve got more ideas for you, so don’t go away.
I’ll show you how to get that list.
