Ready to hit live? Whether it’s your first live stream or you’re a pro, run through this checklist to make sure you’re set up for the best experience possible: 

  • Plan the story arc: what do you want to happen over the course of your stream, and in what order? Map it all out, or develop an outline to help keep you on track.
  • Pick where you want your stream to live
  • Make sure you have a good Wi-Fi connection
  • Design your stream to match your vision – set up scenes, overlays, text boxes and action bars
  • Give your stream a name that is clear and discoverable (think about what people might search to find content like yours)
  • Test your camera and audio so you feel confident in how you look and sound on camera 
  • Send invite links to remote guests
  • Make sure any necessary props or visuals are within an arm’s reach 
  • Don’t forget—the best part of a live stream is that it’s LIVE! Make sure you’re relaxed and ready to have fun.

It’s go time! We love seeing what you stream, share yours with us.
