Why Live Video Now?

WHAT IS LIVE VIDEO?

Live Video is streaming video content sent in compressed form over the internet and displayed by the viewer in real time.

WHY SHOULD MARKETERS CARE?

Live Video gives brands the opportunity to connect with customers on a far more genuine, personal level than polished and produced videos. Also, social channels like Facebook and Instagram are sharing live video content more readily due to its increasing popularity among consumers.

HOW CAN IT HELP YOUR BUSINESS?

Brands looking to engage young millennials and Generation Z need to invest in a live video strategy. According to eMarketer, 63% of people ages 18 to 34 are watching live-streaming content regularly. For brand awareness, relationship building, and even direct sales, live video will become an increasingly effective marketing channel.
