I once had a live show. I felt like a complete idiot – I was sitting there talking to myself, no audience, I spat and never did it again.
Oh no! Sorry to hear you had that situation. Doing a live show on your own is REALLY hard, and I wouldn’t recommend doing a solo show at the start. There are things you can do to make sure you have a live audience when you go live. But it’s hard to get a new live show to go out with a bang unless you do a bit of promotional work first. I have done some live shows when I’ve had no one watching. That happened when there was a bug on Facebook. But also in the early days when just no one saw the video go out. It’s a bit depressing!
It’s a lot easier if you have a guest – that way, you can double up the promotion. But more importantly, you can have a conversation, and it’s a lot easier that way than talking to yourself!
But now, my aim is to create content. If no one watches me live, that’s a shame, but at the end of the show I now have videos on my channel that my replay audience can watch. And I can repurpose it into a podcast, video snippets, a blog post and more.
