Why Products Need Live Streaming

In the increasingly crowded feel of Internet video platforms, YouTube has taken a step ahead its competitors. During the 2017 World Series, YouTube included live streaming of the World Series in a commercial. This live streaming feed, meant to keep viewers tuned in where most change the channel, is a game changer in the live video game. Live streaming products will certainly be a game changer.

As platforms like YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram all prioritize live streaming, now is the perfect time for products to join the live streaming game. With QVC, products and live feeds have had a beautiful marriage for over 30 years. However, it’s not until recently that live feeds have had a chance to shine outside of traditional television.

Bridging the Gap

Instead of focusing solely on television or on the web, marketers now have a chance to bridge the gap and incorporate live streaming into both television and web. Marketers can integrate live feeds into their television spots to keep consumers from clicking away from a program.

Why Your Product Needs Facebook Live

Live video rose to popularity in the 1980’s with the invention of QVC. 30 years later, there is a new live video player in town and it’s ready to promote products all across its platforms. Facebook Live has been around for a year and a half and it has shown its value to thousands of brands around the world.

Is Facebook Live the new QVC?

QVC has already adapted early to the Facebook Live platform, utilizing Facebook to sell their products digitally. 30 years ago, it was rare for an inventor to have the ability to sell his or her products on QVC. Now, everyone has the ability to stand on stage with Facebook Live. Inventors and companies from all over the world have the capability to digitally share their products on the web.

Preferred Algorithm

Facebook has a specific algorithm for what shows up in your newsfeed. Facebook is trying to overtake the digital video giant YouTube, therefore Facebook is prioritizing video and specifically live feed for newsfeeds. This means, if you broadcast on Facebook Live, you have a higher chance of someone seeing your content vs. a post with a photo.

Clear ROI

In addition to converting sales, Facebook Live has the ability to tell marketers exactly where their digital dollars are going. Facebook insights have the ability to tell you exactly how many views there were on your video, the demographics of those views, and which views converted to a click.
