Going live stream is a matter of knowing how to adapt and adjust your selling strategy, based on the current reaction and mood of the audience. As a brand, what will be directly under your control to prepare beforehand, will be the set-up with the equipment, the host, the knowledge of the products, the order and the discounts they will come with. Being open to spontaneity is a very important factor, but here we propose you some questions to explore, to be morally ready for hypothetical situations that will come up. You can build your sense of direction and awareness, to make sure the stream goes as smoothly and in the most upbeat way possible.

By offering an insight into the similar one’s on the market, you can highlight this product’s advantages and emphasize its value. Give them a taste of it, by demonstrating its use and commentating your responses and thoughts, so they can put themselves in your shoes. Complete transparency gains an upper hand as a marketing strategy, compared to filtered and edited advertisements. Help them understand in what way their life will be different, once they purchase it, the value it will bring to the smallest details.
What information can you share with them to earn their trust and faith? How is it worth the price you propose?

You want to respond to the reaction of the audience, by actively choosing when more insight is needed for the feeling of the audience, when to ask them questions to boost engagement, when to speed them up by saying that time is running low on to buy. You want to change up the rhythm, not get too pushy on buying, not spend too much time on product presentation. Your audience will correlate the decision to buy if you sell the idea well and that will be formed by the experience you offer. They will for a win situation by getting an enticing offer or discount, but it will be a win-win situation when you engage them into the brand’s dynamic by leading it through reading the audience’s needs and creating desire.
Encourage engagement by addressing the viewer that asks by username and giving a thorough response and offering as much help as possible to help them build a deep understanding of the product. One answer will respond to many of those wondering, most of whom didn't speak up, so by making your audience feel at home with you, it is likely the chat will be full of prompts for where to lead your discussion and get a better idea of how the audience is perceiving you and the product.
Make sure to start finishing off the live on a positive note, thanking your viewers for sticking to the end and their participation, embracing the fact that you help them give you better value, through their engagement. You might want to give a sneak peek into the next stream, by announcing when it will be, its theme or star products. You want them to be eager to come back, so as the saying goes “less is more”, it is smart to finish before the engagement starts dying off and people get tired of it.
