Adding a Dimension to What You Do.
COVID changed everything; the way we work, the way we socialize, even the way we look while we’re out shopping (because Amazon can’t deliver everything.… yet). Personally, I’d trade a finger for the pre-COVID world (and I’ve only got nine left, so that says something), but every cloud has a silver lining, and this is no exception. The pandemic robbed the world of recreational sports, live music performances, and basically anything fun. But it simultaneously ushered in a need for technological adaptation, making novelty digital communication platforms like Zoom, Go-to-Meeting and Google Chat essential work applications. In doing so, COVID built a funnel that drove more people than ever before to the internet, both for work and entertainment. The Explosion of Livestreaming. Remember when Twitch was for video game nerds living in Mom’s basement? Those days are as far gone as pep rallies and free-ranging grocery store aisles. COVID changed the face of streaming, probably forever. Musicians, Gamers, Podcasters, Analysts and Artists took to streaming and never looked back, forcing YouTube Live, Facebook Live and others to seriously up their game and catch up to their “nerdy” predecessor. Livestreaming has morphed from a gamers-only haven into a gig-workers dream. Content creators are supplementing their income, musicians are replacing gigs, and people are connecting with audiences in more meaningful (and profitable) ways than ever before. If your passion is music, gaming, or engaging with people in real time, Livestreaming is probably for you. Why You Should be Streaming:
- 1. Experiential Content.
- 2. Reach New People.
- 3. Make Money Doing What You Love.
- 4. It’s Easier than You Think.
