The impact of effective live video


Live video has become more accessible to more and more people, and the expectations and demands of viewers change and increase. So what makes live video so impactful?

The main reason that makes live video relevant is news. Every live video broadcast tells you something new. Everything you look at has never happened before and is unique in this way. This can be breaking news, a sporting match or the presentation of the new iPhone. People are willing to watch a stream for a long time, because they know that at a moment in the stream they get to see something new that nobody knew before. A good planning is crucial. That is why We Are Live is involved from the early stages, making sure you have those moments on camera and really engage with your audience.

Inter action

The developments in the quality of cameras and smartphones ensure that more and more people are able to participate in a live video, without having to sit at home behind their desktop computer. This gives you the opportunity to get in touch with your target group, and gives them the opportunity to have a live interaction that would not normally be possible. That live interaction is what give your livestream even more relevance. We Are Live helps you to find the best format and channel for the live interaction.

Life after live

The potential of a livestream does not stop after the livestream has ended. All recorded material can be of enormous value after the livestream, especially as a marketing tool. People are willing to watch a livestream longer than other online video content. So is therefore to adjust and optimize your recorded live content for online publication after the livestream. To maximize effectivity we shoot, edit and upload the video content during or within hours after the event. Thanks to our live editing capabilities, we can share snippets of the talks instantly with the world. This way all highlights will be available immediately.
