We’ve changed the way we go about entertaining ourselves in this modern world. We consume things differently, we stream music and TV in bulk batches on our mobile devices, we socialise through digital means and we entertain ourselves through the medium of the internet and gaming.
Live streaming sports and gaming events won’t lead to the end of traditional sports and entertainment channels, far from it. Just look at how many people turn up to Premier League games week after week or watch Britain’s Got Talent. There is however, no denying things have changed.
There is an opportunity for sports and gaming communities to take advantage of this through the live streaming of events.
Join the 21st century and live stream your event
The 21st century has a very tech savvy and demanding consumer population. We want more than ever before and we want it now.
Brands and businesses are required to offer their fans, followers and customers more information and access. They are constantly trying to keep up with the changes and are now required to offer their fans access to behind the scenes, access to brand culture and access to events.
Take the next step and take advantage of the demand by live streaming events.
Live streaming sports and gaming are perfect examples of live streaming events
We think that sports and gaming companies are the perfect businesses/models to take advantage of this success. We’ve had previous experience of the popularity and success of live streaming an event when we covered the London Backgammon open.
By live streaming the event, the audience of the competition gained amazing access to it. They could tune in from all over the world and get involved with it more than ever before.
This kind of service is largely affordable and is available for all gaming and sports events: from a poker series at a casino, to video gaming competitions, to a youth organisation’s internal sports tournaments.
Darts, pool and chess are all good options to live stream. It doesn’t have to be sports and gaming either. Why not stream a speech or an awards ceremony?
Live streaming events give you the chance to offer your existing fan base excellent coverage, but it can also to grow the number of followers you have. By offering more access to great content you’re likely to reach more people. It’s a great way to interact with your community and grow your business.
Live streaming event is not necessarily a new thing but it doesn’t mean everyone is doing it. Take advantage and get ahead of the curve by live streaming your event.
