Final Link in Livestreaming, How, Where Do I Send It?

If you are OK with the livestreaming approach of going direct, while needing to fall within budget constraints, more likely than not you will be able to stream without many issues.

Many people start with Facebook for some obvious reasons. The largest is that it notifies people that you are live and it is very simple to interact with your stream. Once you begin to master one, maybe look at going to another as a separate offering. Ultimately, we had a few people ask about better quality, after which we chose to also stream to YouTube and give the hyperlink in Facebook via a shortened URL. Our YouTube channel remains at about 10 percent of live viewers than our Facebook. There is also the option of embedding the stream onto your webpage. It may be a great way to include some additional information about the church on one concise page with links to events, announcements, and giving.

It has never been easier to get your church online, through any one of these many ways. Just like when the pace of computers couldn’t keep up with the market, so too is livestreaming. My prediction is that we will continue to see Facebook and YouTube push to get content to them directly. At the end of the day, our goal is to share the good news and livestreaming seems to be a great way to assist in the facilitation of the Great Commission.
