Live streaming can be a great way for your organization to earn additional revenue. There are a variety of options for monetizing your streams. At BoxCast, there are two main ways our organizations make money from their broadcasts.
In this post, we're going to talk about the first method: ticketing viewers.
At BoxCast, we believe that your live streamed events should be as similar as possible to your in-person events. If you sell tickets to watch your in-person event, you should be able to sell tickets to the live streamed event as well. BoxCast makes it possible and easy.
We know that streaming video content live is valuable to viewers who are unable to attend an event in person. However, in many cases, the archives of those broadcasts can be just as important for viewers as the live video.
For that reason, it's important to consider where your archived broadcasts will be available for on-demand playback and how you’re going to get them there.
If you are streaming through a social platform (Facebook Live, Periscope, YouTube Live, etc) you might find the process of embedding the stream on your website to be clunky. Most of those platforms make embedding difficult because they would rather keep your viewers on their platforms.
The main exception to that is YouTube. YouTube makes embedding easier, but their player will link to other third party videos on your website and ads so that they can monetize your video.
At BoxCast, we believe that significant moments that are captured live should be kept and cherished. With that thought in mind, we are constantly making it easier for viewers to find significant moments in an archived video.
At BoxCast, we believe that every event that is viewed live should be streamed live. With that thought in mind, we are constantly working to recreate the in-person experience for remote viewers.
BoxCast offers the easiest and most complete streaming solution that fits our customer's needs.
Our product team is constantly working to release features that make live streaming easier and smarter.
Here's a summary of a few of the features that we offer empower broadcasters to create incredible streams for their viewers.
You can grow your live streaming audience by improving the quality of your broadcasts, and by analyzing viewership data to improve your viewer's experience.
