Benefits of Streaming on your Personalized Webpage
Why do you need a personalized webpage? Well, if you don’t want to stream on your social account or you don’t have a social account or your audience is not on social media, you need a webpage to reach out to your audience. That said, there are a lot more benefits of streaming on your personalized webpage:
Live streaming on your personalized webpage adds credibility and authenticity to your videos.
You can build your brand identity by establishing branding guidelines for your webpage. For instance, by selecting a particular layout, background, and color palette, you can set up a distinct brand identity for your live streams. So, every time your viewers see your videos, they immediately relate to you as a unique brand.
With the clickable CTA button, you can drive your viewers to any external destination that you desire. For example, you can redirect your viewers to your social media handles for long-term relationships, your e-commerce website or product pages to drive sales, or your charity pages to seek donations and sponsorships, etc. You can even collect viewer data and feedback through forms to later use for marketing campaigns. The sky is the limit.
Embedding videos on your own webpage is the most effective and cost-effective marketing tactic. You can showcase your products live, demonstrate their functionality and features, build hype, and promote the product in full swing. The visual appeal of your webpage will also add to the desirability of the products.
Make a Shoppable Live Stream
If Amazon’s shoppable live streams have inspired you, here’s your chance to make your own. You can showcase your products during the live videos on your webpage and redirect your viewers through the clickable CTA button to your product listings. Turn your live streams into live commerce and generate sales.
Practical Use Cases
Not all churches have a dedicated official website to stream their services. They have one less worry now. If you are a church streamer, with Hosted Live Pages, you can customize your church service webpage, set up the mood with all the customization options, and live stream your prayers and services seamlessly. You can invite all worshippers to join the video session and interact and engage with the church in real-time. You can even collect donations by redirecting the viewers to your donations and sponsorships pages.
Hosted Live Pages are expected to be a ground-breaking feature for the business and marketing community. An easily customizable webpage can be used to promote products through shoppable live streams, establish and maintain long-term customer relationships, present personalized special offers, and drive email campaigns with videos. If you are a marketer, you can leverage these webpages as lead magnets to attract new audiences and generate sales.
Individual teachers can create a dedicated academic environment or a virtual classroom using Hosted Live Pages. If you are an educationist, you can customize your webpage as per your requirements and deliver a wholesome learning experience to your student body. At the same time, you can use the clickable CTA button for multiple purposes – marking attendance, taking quizzes, submitting assignments, etc.
Musicians and DJs can live broadcast their creative skills on a personalized and dedicated webpage, setting a unique mood for their videos using the innovative customization options available.
