Content of the Live 1
First, we will discuss the good stuff. I was very much nervous before the presentation as I am always worried about something going wrong (well, something did go wrong and I will cover that later in this blog post). However, nothing major went wrong which I could not correct. I am usually worried about the service outages of internet, power, or anything I can’t fix. However, all of them went fine with regard to services.
There were over 400 live attendees to my presentations and I have received nearly 500+ comments. Now, this was indeed encouraging considering it was a very first live presentation.
I had made my mind that my presentation is going to be of only 30 minutes and I was able to stick to that so I am very happy. I really value your time and my time and all the presenters should always respect the time of the attendees.
I must blame myself for poor marketing. I think lots of people reached out to me saying that they did not know I was about to do a live stream. Many wanted to join but had no idea. I must blame myself as I really did not know how to actually reach out to many of you. Here is my request to all of you. Please please join the newsletter here: https://go.sqlauthority.com and I will send you regular reminders.
I had rehearsed my presentation multiple times and I have tried my streaming software multiple times. However, during the first few minutes of the presentation, I learned that my audio has been heard from a single side of the Microphone. That means I had to change my microphone while I was doing a live presentation. I have learned from my mistakes and I have fixed the issue with the audio. Hopefully, in the future, you will find no issues related to it.
I am hoping that I can use some good transitions between camera and screen in the future. I am also looking forward to coming up with a way where I can live answer comments from the users. I also need to find a way to get feedback from users about how things are going during the live presentation. It is critical to have the pulse of the audience while presenting online live and I will try to do better at that in the future.
Well, that’s it for today. Let me know if you have any feedback, suggestions or tools which I can use to do a better presentation on YouTube Live.
