OUR APPROACH

Creating an event, broadcast or live stream comes with a unique set of needs, goals and requirements which is why our bespoke service puts you at the centre. At the start of every project we will sit down with you and talk through the event to ensure we truly understand what you want to achieve, and the KPI’s that are key to your business. We can then utilise our experience to provide suggestions and the best methods to achieve your goal, all within your budget.

TIPS & CONSIDERATIONS

Do you want to stand out and deliver massive value to your audience? Why not live stream a conversation with an influencer or thought leader relevant to your audience/industry?

You could then have a live Q+A with your audience (virtual, physical or both), further increasing interaction. The beauty of this format is you could use it as a lead magnet by marketing the event and gathering details of delegates signing up. After the event you can follow up with them, already having delivered massive value. Alternatively, you could host a more private, VIP event with your loyal customers.

Don't let a good live stream go to waste, make sure you record everything. Every event that we live stream is captured and recorded, this includes the master program (the main output with cuts, transitions and balanced audio) and each camera feed, audio channel etc. There is a huge marketing potential around 'tent pole' events. This content can be edited and utilised as the core material for your post-event marketing drive and also used as highlights for future events. 

Setting out a clear plan on how to generate interest before the live stream or event will prove invaluable to those all-important views. Each time you engage with your audience on the lead up to the live stream share something new and valuable, like what content they can expect or an interesting fact they may not know about a key speaker etc. 

"If you have two, you have one; if you have one, you have none". No truer words have been said when it comes to live streaming and event production. It’s one of our core principles for both physical equipment and data. The last thing you need is a broken cable or key piece of equipment in the chain breaking, leaving you unable to stream. We meticulously plan our equipment list to ensure we have backups and redundancies for everything, along with backing up all content and recording directly to our cameras and audio mixers. We also bring a 4G modem as a worst-case scenario if the internet line fails.
