Livestreaming doesn’t have to be difficult, especially when you’re working with Melon. It is browser-based, so you wont need any special software. And, in just five steps, you can be using Melon for a better presentation for your next livestream.
How it works
The first step is to log in to Melon. You can use your email to connect your social accounts like Facebook, Youtube and more. Once you’re logged in, it’s time to set up what you want everyone to see. Tell Melon what camera you want to use. Make sure your shot is flattering. Even if you don’t have an expensive camera, good composition doesn’t cost anything. Next, in order to make sure you’re heard, it’s time to set up the audio. Using a dedicated microphone will sound best and is easy to set up in Melon.
Now that you can be seen and heard, it’s time to add some production value to the stream with graphics. This will be your “look.” In other words, consider this your brand colors. Additionally, think about how your graphics will be used, so you aren’t covering up something you want your audience to see.
Share your screen in-stream
With Melon, you can share your screen. This allows you to share your presentation, document or even video with your viewers. You want to make your streaming experience unforgettable, and adding different elements to your stream will help you build the entertaining event that your viewers came to see.
Monitor your chat
Being connected to your audience through chat endures you to them. To that end, it’s important to monitor your chat for improved engagement. An audience that is engaged creates community, and a simple connection with an audience member can turn them into a super fan. Plus, Melon has a private chat feature, so you can chat directly with an individual without the rest of the stream being involved.
Choose the destination your livestream
No matter where you need to stream, Melon connects directly to your platform of choice. Connect your Melon account with Facebook, Youtube, LinkedIn or Custom destination point and stream to eight places at once.
The only thing left to do is go live. But don’t worry, the first thing your audience sees won’t be your surprised face. Melon has a variety of built-in video countdowns to choose from so your stream will start and you’ll have time to be ready on camera.
