There are a number of ways to launch your own live video stream or have your own online TV show. Google+ has Hangout’s where you can video chat with up to nine other people, plus you can stream live onto YouTube. It is pretty cool. We have talked about Ustream in the past. That is the original live streaming site. Now, there is Spreecast.
Spreecast allows you to stream live via video with a large group of people. Actually an unlimited amount of people. I was on a Spreecast that had 180 people from around the globe. It is a fantastic site that has similar features to Google+ Hangout’s, YouTube, and Ustream. The difference is you can interact with every single person in the stream. All you have to do is click on the person and boom, they will appear in a split screen. You can chat with them live and move on to the next person. There is no limitation. The similarities are there as well. Spreecast has the chat feature and social plugins for Facebook and Twitter. The session can be recorded as well. It is a social platform itself, so you can build a community within the site.
There are few ways you can use the site for your business. You can host a live Q & A session for your community members. You can host a panel discussion or a one on one interview live for your community. If you want to put on a product demonstration, pop on to Spreecast and start showcasing your skills. Another way, is to use it for live presentations. When you are hosting a speaking engagement you can bring your laptop or plugin the camera to stream live and boom, you have your online community, as well as your live audience. It is quite wonderful. I suggest you get creative and start using the site. Keep an eye out for future Spreecast sessions from DoughMarket.
Until next time, be well.
