5 easy ways to boost engagement on live broadcasts

Going live is easy, but you've got to do more than that to get folks to watch, listen, and engage with you!

In this week's episode:

  • I started livestreaming on July 3, 2015, and I went live every day, 3-7 times a day, seven days a week. All I had was my phone and my Apple ear buds as a mic.
  • I started landing paid clients six days later.
  • After a year and a half of making money livestreaming, I bought a pro mic and some pro lighting.  Total spent: $150.00
  • Years ago, you could go live and loads and loads of people would pile in to watch you because livestreaming was new.
  • Now things are different.
  • I detail several things that will easily boost your engagement on live broadcasts including having a compelling title with action words, scheduling your live ahead of time and promoting it via your email list and social media.
  • Please remember that a live broadcast is NOT a webinar! Engage with your audience! (I give great examples on how to do this in the episode)

Don't you dare take NO for an answer, mindset and other ways to have business success

You should never accept the word NO or "that's impossible" for an answer in your life or your business.

 In this week's episode:
