3 Tips You Need To Know To Keep Calm While Livestreaming Professionally

 

Setup Your Livestreaming Area

To help ease the jitters and keep calm while live streaming professionally, we’re going to go over how to set up your live stream area.  Your appearance and the background of your videos need to be based on your brand. Take a moment and answer these questions to help you develop a professional live stream background and appearance:

What is your brand about?

Are you a dumpster diver maverick?

A slick multi-millionaire entrepreneur?

 

What is the mission and vision of your brand?

To get your customers more clients?

 

Who are you serving?

Small business owners, dog owners, course creators?

What would your target audience expect to see when they think of the product or service you are offering?

 

The answers to these questions are going to help you get ideas about what topics you may want to discuss and how to design your livestreaming background.  Not into designing anything and did the word wardrobe make you cringe?

 

I get it and this isn’t a problem either.  To help you keep calm while live streaming I would suggest wearing what makes you comfortable that is reminds the person watching the video of your brand.  Also, have a clean background with either a blank wall or tasteful pics in the background while you’re either standing or sitting at a desk.

 

What to Say

When you don’t know what to say on a live stream, it’s easy to put it off.  Here are a few things I do to keep me from rambling, getting off topic, and staying calm during the stream.

 

Outline of the topic and what you’re going to talk about.

Do a quick dry run of what you’re going to say…

This is never the same as what you’re going to say on a  live, but it helps you keep your thoughts together.

Tape the outline to my tripod.  This really helps you stay on pace, focused, and on task.

Owning it when you get tongue-tied or just forget.   This helps you remain human and relevant to your target audience.

Best Practices To Help You Keep Calm While Livestreaming

Be cautious of location shoots. The sun and wind can make it miserable to film and hard for your audience to see and hear you.

Choose the level of privacy you’re comfortable with.  Remove personally identifying pictures, artwork, etc. if you’re concerned about inviting the public to meet your family members.

Pets and children are optional and, in my opinion, always make for a perfect cameo.   These are the basic things that make up your live streaming strategy, which is what you should have every time you go live.  When you see your favorite social media influencer online, it’s intentional.  Even the personal stuff they post can turn into a product or service related thing.

Keep on livestreaming.  This is the best way to get comfortable live streaming.  As you move forward, your business message will change, and I suggest you revisit this post as you grow, and upgrade your live stream appearance and background accordingly.

I would suggest committing to a 30-day challenge and speaking about a topic that you know very well.  This will make you comfortable and help you keep calm while live streaming.  Need help putting all of this together?  Get a copy of my free checklist to avoid overwhelm when you’re live streaming.
