🔦 Tips to make Cross-Platform Chat More Engaging:
The live stream chat presents several chances for you to be "you" and foster a personal connection with your audience. Here are some tips to make your OneStream Studio Cross Platform Chat more engaging.
🔖 Embrace Authority and be Yourself
Consider fresh perspectives on the subject of your live event, and feel free to share your thoughts with the audience. You increase the likelihood that viewers will connect with you and want to engage in more conversation with you in the live Chat by being more relatable.
🔖 Set Chat Rules
Before starting the live Chat, make sure the rules are clear. For example, don't use longer texts, repeating text is spam, links are not permitted, don't type in all caps, use only English, and don't use foul language.
🔖 Organize Q&A Sessions
By definition, most live broadcasts are interactive. However, in practice, they frequently devolve into one-way information-distribution sessions, gaming, or informal discussion sessions with viewers. It is a wonderful idea to plan a weekly or monthly Q&A session in order to increase audience participation. Remember that audiences adore sincerity. The greatest way to achieve it is by being open to their queries and putting yourself out there.
🔖 Highlight Live Comments
Seeing your name appear on the live stream is wonderful. Utilize the OneStream Studio banner to display comments or queries while you are live. Use live Chat to highlight audience members and use their names with little information about them if they are regular viewers. This is a great source of engagement with your audience.
Turn your viewers into participants with OneStream Live's revolutionary Cross Platform Chat feature to unleash a new level of engagement. Multicasting your streams on social platforms with OneStream Studio and by using Cross Platform chat, you can increase your audience engagement exponentially. It works like a charm and makes your streaming journey super easy and effective. Stay tuned, and don’t miss more amazing OneStream Studio Updates.
