It is generally accepted that in-person learning is the best way to teach schoolchildren and have them progress through the educational system. When that is not possible, live webcasting and streaming allow teachers to interact with their students in real-time. In these unprecedented and uncertain times, the academic world has never had to be as flexible. Schools need to be prepared to move to remote learning at all levels of the educational system in the United States, relying on live webcasting and streaming in order to continue the school year without putting students, teachers, and other personnel in danger.
It was not that long ago that the only way to gather management teams, investors, or groups of employees that may be scattered throughout the United States was to meet at a centralized concert hall or other large facilities. These cost companies and individuals money and time that could be best spent in other ways. In today’s digital world of instant online communications, virtual events cost-and time-efficient alternatives that can fulfill the same goals and objectives as in-person events without the expense and hassle.
Video production is now the most popular and effective vehicle to reach and engage a large online audience to showcase your products and services. Take your product demonstration, customer testimonial, and explainer videos to another level by presenting them in a live streaming format. This allows attendees to engage with the presenter directly through Q&A sessions, instant polls, and other creative ways to communicate with existing and potential customers in real-time.

Tips for Planning Live Webcasting and Streaming
It takes a lot of work and effort to pull off a successful live webcasting and streaming event. The more you plan and the simpler you make it, the better chance you have at success, especially if you are venturing into the live streaming world for the first time. The following tips will help you plan your live event and ensure it goes off without a hitch.
Set Goals, Objectives
Know why you are planning your event and set specific goals and objectives for audience numbers and other conversion metrics.

Our talented team of production professionals at Coldea Productions will help you choose the right platform for your needs. Among the choices to select from include:

Engage Your Target Audience
If you are able to engage your target audience and allow them to interact and be a part of the webcast, they are far more likely to stay for the entire presentation and become emotionally invested in the information you are presenting. Post polls and surveys throughout the webcast and have questions ready that attendees can answer through the streaming platforms or social media comment sections. You can also offer giveaways and other incentives for presentations that are especially reliant on audience participation.
Plan and Promote
Pre-production planning is the key to your success. Create a plan and schedule to promote your webcast in a variety of outlets and platforms, including:
- Your website, blog, and events calendar
- Social media networks
- Paid online ads through search engines, popular websites, and social media outlets
- Email marketing campaign and newsletters
- Request presenters and other participants promote the event on their social media pages and other digital properties.
