5 Live Streaming Apps for iPhone and Android

5 Live Streaming Apps for iPhone and Android hi everyone my name is ileane smith and welcome back to another edition of learn to live stream with ms. ileane Im so glad youre joining me today because live streaming is really important and its really a great way for you to connect with your audience so today Id like to cover five live streaming apps that you can use on your iPhone now just to give you a little heads up some of these apps are for article live streaming which of course I love to do but then Im also going to share some audio live streaming apps because audio and podcasting is also a fantastic way for you to connect with your audience so lets start off with an app that youve never heard me talk about here before on this YouTube channel so lets go to the screen share and dive in the first app that I want to introduce you to is the twitch app now with the twitch app Im already logged into my account and Ive only used this app a few times but I thought that you know a lot of people know about twitch and using it for gaming but they also have a live-article aspect to it so I thought I would show it to you because you dont have to use it for gaming in fact they have a few different channels and as you see here heres the app heres my profile and where it says post and update and you see the little purple icon for the camera click that on and youll see that you describe your stream but you also let me paste in my title I already had that hopefully it will go with me pasting there you go whats a little stubborn okay but you also have the option to change to different categories so you have the IRL the creative social eating music or talk shows and since I like to talk Im gonna pick talk shows and then you can share that out on social media and so forth before you go live but lets just go ahead and start the stream now with a lot of these apps youll see that you need to rotate your camera I made the mistake once of rotating it the wrong way but it clearly it tells me which way to rotate it so I need to follow instructions so lets hope this goes all well with the tripod and bam it gets started and Im live now if there were folks there watching me I would see that over in the chat thats the area that you see off with the white and it says welcome to the chat room at the very top but I can hide that if I wish I can also when Im ready to go I can flip the camera around and this is really one of the reasons why I feel that they introduced this live streaming for you to actually go out maybe go to a gaming arcade or some type of live gaming event and so you really would have the camera flipped around for the most part unless youre the one whos actually actively playing some type of game okay so just wanted to show you that and while were here I would also highly recommend that when youre doing any kind of live-streaming I might as well mention this now this is really important if youre going live I recommend that you use this RODE smartlav and youll see the link in the description of this YouTube article for the rode smartlav mic especially if youre out and about and youve got all kinds of wind and all of that and you want to use a lavalier mic because that cuts down on that noise okay so now what we do in order to stop the stream tap on the screen and were just going to end that one okay and then I could come back later over on Twitch and I can post that out to my stream okay I see my friend Larry is here hey Larry if you want I put the link for the patreon page because this is actually embedded over on patreon even though its a public stream I put that link in the description over on YouTube so that everybodys chat can be saved but I wanted to leave that one open just in case someone hi Sheila how are you just in case someone decided to do a super chat I figured I wouldnt leave that open but just so you know if you look in the description of the YouTube article you you will see the link to the patreon post its a public post so anybody can see it today you know Ive done the patron only live streams but this one is public today Im just on just as many apps as I possibly can think of to be on right now so lets just hope that the screen sharing holds up ok so the next app that I want to show you remember I said at the beginning that were going to talk about article but were also going to talk about audio and one of the things I know most folks love to do is go live on Facebook right but did you know that Facebook also has live audio now I previously had a tutorial about how to do Facebook live audio and as a matter of fact its one of my more popular articles here on the channel and as fate would have it Facebook likes to move the cheese and I guess most people are figuring it out you have to go through an extra step now in order to turn on the live audio so let me show you how to do that real quick and lets get Facebook open first and make sure Im all logged in and then well go to the screen share okay as you know with Facebook you can go live on your page or your profile or on your groups okay so Im just going to go live and if you want to find your groups you hit the hamburger menu in this case the hamburger menu is at the bottom left Im sorry at the bottom right I should know Im using my right hand and you see theres your shortcut to some groups I dont just go into the work and focus group somebodys hangout and there anyway and I havent gone live in that group for a while so lets do that you would go and you would click on that live button and so this is where people may get a little confused because you may think that youre going live of audio and they I just noticed they actually changed the icon and see now a still says start live article and I dont know why Facebook is making this so complicated to do this but heres the trick the three little dots that are in the circle at the bottom right thats where live audio is hiding so when youre having a bad hair day you just go live on audio now I always recommend that you get a an image to upload and I think maybe I have one in my favorites at the top oh youre seeing all the little photos I took today wait a second hang on Im not sure how fast it will be for me to get to my favorites there you go theres my favorites all right heres the one for where should you go live so you have a cover image now I prefer if you notice at the bottom of this image I have black where it says ileanesmith.com and I think that its a good idea to have a dark image but an image thats dark on the bottom that way people can know that youre going live because they can see that waveform see that waveform thats quivering a little bit lets just go ahead and say done and now you can see a little bit better and that lets people know that your live audio okay so Im going to go ahead and paste in that title pasting is getting a little tricky for me today but well just keep at it until it lets me do it finally okay then of course once it does it start so pasting all this other stuff in there okay there you go now were done that and now I can start my live Audio Ill just make a quick announcement to my friends over in the group oh I had a little connection by oh there you go hey guys Im live over on YouTube but Im also posting this on my patreon page so if you head over to YouTube youll see the link there to go to patreon and that way the chat stays alive when Im done going through the five apps then Ill be taking your questions so whoops we had a little bit of a reconnection problem there thats okay guys if that happens just continue on with your broadcasts and in that case actually my phone crashed oh yeah I got a super chat from Larry thats Larrysnow.me Thank You Larry big shout out thank you so much and that was a super cute Saturday thats right a hashtag super to Saturday and yeah so my phone died but thats okay because we can carry on as its rebooting and just a little bit more of housekeeping so youll know how this is all going down Im using QuickTime to record because I noticed when I use a reflector app I was having little issues with the YouTube so maybe at this point it might just be my computer because now its even crashing with QuickTime so lets get this all back up and running here I guess I gotta start QuickTime up yes Sheila super cute Saturday thats actually my hashtag its one that I made up a long time ago but Larry knows about it Ive been using in fact I started the hashtag on snapchat and its been a while since are you snapchat regularly I still use it but not regularly like I used to so lets see if we can get this screen share back up and so when you go to QuickTime and Im pretty sure I did a article to show how to do this on QuickTime as well you just have to start a new movie and oh yeah your phone has to be plugged into your computer though with the USB and lightning cable okay so lets move on to our next app because the phone has rebooted yay all right so the next app that I want to show you is an another audio app and that is Spreaker now Spreaker does have an app for you to listen but when youre actually a broadcaster and you want to go live youll see this red app that says record or re see and so its actually setting up a little bit of a studio which is super cool now heres what I love about going live on Spreaker once you record your audio you can of course download it and then repurpose it or you can just make it live for people to listen to the replay as part of your podcast and that can go on iTunes if you want or if not you can just stay within the Spreaker community so one of the cool things they have is the ability to play different effects now I dont know if youre going to hear these right now no you cant hear the effects but that would be like a cheering crowd and then theres one when you want to have a school bell ringing so you would mix this in to your production of your audio and that is one of the things that I love about using Spreaker and you know like I said you can go live but the other thing I love about speakers they also have a similar app only much more sophisticated for your desktop so thats a great way to livestream you let your your audience know that youre on the Spreaker app and they can join in on the chat and they can even be on the website and can you add your own effects and Spreaker you absolutely can hi Pam and Larry yet you absolutely can add your own effects and Spreaker and so lets see I dont know if I have any on my phone right now but Ill show you where you could add them theres an empty slot at the bottom here where it says edit effects and I can get rid of any of the ones that are there and then drag and drop into my bring in my own so lets say for example want to get rid of this one and then if I have audio on my phone I can go to my music library or I can browse and I think you can also even bring in tracks from Dropbox now lets see well I dont want I dont want anything to crash there there you go so there and theres all the different locations that I can drag an audio so that was a great question Larry thanks so much for asking that because I was not going to go into that but its an excellent excellent point you always ask such great questions Larry Ill tell you you are a gem okay so we did twitch we did Facebook audio we did Spreaker audio and were gonna do something that hopefully doesnt crash the stream but were gonna just see if we can show a little bit about YouTube live without actually going live since were live okay lets do that yes I know a lot of folks have not had the opportunity to go live on YouTube yet and you know it depends upon how many subscribers you have so the great thing about going live on YouTube is that you dont oh isnt she cute shes already live and five people watching Hi five people hello hello Jeb type in the chat and say hi or a chat over on patreon Im gonna go to the patreon chat in a little bit so one of the great things about this is that you dont need a separate app okay you just use the regular YouTube app and up at the top where you see the camera icon you just tap that one and then you just tap one go live now I highly recommend that you turn your rotate your phone so you can be in landscape and its kind of flips things around so it does look a little bizarre but thats what you need to do and you also need to take it off of unlisted you know make it public just do that simply right here and dont think just because you see the black and white now thats okay that doesnt mean anything and then you would you know go live now you would add the title then it asked you to take a picture for the thumbnail and then you would go live now of course Ive got another tutorial here on the channel to show you guys how to do that and we dont want to go live with inside the life because we dont want to blow up my YouTube account okay is that a deal alright so lets get out of here alright and so lets do one more and this one is called switcher go and you may have seen me talk about switcher go before but the beauty of switcher go and be pay close attention guys for those of you who cannot go live on YouTube yet you may be able to go live using this switcher go app even if you dont have the required number of subscribers youre gonna have to give it a try because I dont know how YouTube is really trying to block folks that dont have the right number of subscribers yet but I was doing this YouTube live from my phone using the switcher go way before live-streaming ever rolled out to me because you know in the beginning they only had it for the big big time youtubers so we just click on YouTube and of course Im not gonna finish with the process but I just want you guys to see can you add an image as a thumbnail or just the screenshot Oh Larry you can add no you cannot add an image you only can add the screenshot they only let you take a picture of yourself as on YouTube live when you do it from your phone thats another advantage of using this switcher app because with the switcher app you can oh let me think about that its there a time when they asked me for the thumb now Im not sure lets lets just go through this here all right I already have a title in there okay and create your YouTube live stream now where I think about it I dont think it does ask me and Im not sure why Im upside-down but dont worry about that because youre gonna flip the camera around anyway now in this case I flipped it the opposite way that I did when I was on Twitch go figure so you know what I dont think oh I know how this one works one your YouTube desktop in the live-streaming section where you would use the encoder not the one that I typically use which is the event that thumbnail thats in there that will be the thumbnail that will carry through until you go later on and edit it and change it so if you use your phone so let me say that again on desktop we all have a live streaming area well everybody who has live-streaming turned on right you have the live streaming area on the sidebar of your YouTube channel over on the left hand side there is an option there to go live with an encoder so in a way this switcher app is acting as an encoder thats where you would upload your thumbnail your custom thumbnail then you would come on to this app and you when you log in it actually activates that live stream not an event which may be a little complicated for some folks to understand but just trust me just go live you can worry about the thumbnail later I will come back and watch this article later and then itll start making a little bit more sense to you hopefully you know you always can ask me questions you just go to smith.com slash contact and leave me a voicemail one speakpipe so there you go so now lets lets get out of this because I want to also show you that same app and its this reason why Im showing you this because this is like a bonus this is like a bonus okay because the same app to switch ergo app you can also use to go live one Facebook okay now the other added bonus which I hadnt mentioned yet about using this app is that youre able to bring in a pre-recorded article into your stream so lets just go over to a group once i click group i click done then it tells me to select a group well ill just do a test group that i have called I lead that live okay we have a title see how buggy it is this time Im pasting the title piece and Im just gonna paste it in the description too alright Im gonna say HD I dont know what the difference is between high quality and HD its okay its not that serious its only Facebook live because remember Facebook live only gives you 720p anyways not sure why they asked that question okay so now I think I still have the opportunity to flip my camera so Im gonna do that you guys dont see that but thats okay cuz I didnt and when I say flip I met horizontally now Im going to flip to the okay now you see me and I look to be oriented correctly because you can see my controls or on the side because I didnt actually go live yet I didnt push that red button well push that red button thats when I would actually go live so lets just go and explore some of the options that we have to at the bottom heres where you have that you can bring in additional media for example I can bring in my overlay my logo so you know Im doing this on an app I cant do this on the YouTube app I cant do it on the Facebook app but using a switcher app Im unable to bring in my branding pretty cool right okay lets turn it off because now Im going to show you how you can bring in additional media I think Im going to show you that anyway Im tapping on it so lets say no it cant access my I may have said no cuz I should be able to play that sorry about that guys I think I messed up so you know what Im gonna do Im gonna start that over Im gonna start that one over so let me stop screen sharing really quickly so what do you think so far guys as I try to regroup here oh and as a matter of fact I do need to stop over to patreon tsch my hashtag ologist is in the house shes over there on patreon hey Tish how are you my dear great to see you how do I do a live with a pre-recorded audio okay I would use Spreaker I bet you Spreaker and okay you know what Im gonna answer that question Larry but let me just do this one more time on the Facebook live and see if I did something wrong there because your questions come fast and furious and I just want to make sure that I do them one at a time so I can see that I have my head in the right place and then Ill come back and I want to dont want to go to my timeline I want to go to my group you guys already saw this part so just want to see if I did something wrong here were doing a live create livestream Im gonna flip my camera around and I will screen share as as soon as I verify that its actually going to work this time hows that oh it did yay okay so heres what Im showing you Im using the switcher go app to show pre-recorded content and my live stream so this was something that I had created over on anchor and its a little article that you know came from this is one of the things that they let you do a foreign tanker you can download your audio file and theyll transcribe it for you and make that a little article so I am showing you more apps than you probably this is the world record of apps and multitasking in one YouTube article dont you agree come on people all agree okay oh I know what thats the end of that oh yeah there you go that was the end of this anchor app thats what I get for bragging right okay so now pre-recorded audio onto a live audio mm-hmm let me regroup and bring up a different app because I wasnt even gonna show you this because I was talking about my phone only but Id rather show you on my desktop so lets hope the YouTube guides are in our favor at this time lets get out of this okay yeah you let me stay on okay great great and oh okay before I go to desktop let me get rid of that one and Spreaker has a desktop app mm-hmm better I gotta open it up before I can show it to you I was wondering why I couldnt find it I didnt have it open okay so you download this little piece of software which is the Spreaker studio and this time you may be able to hear it just through the speakers so I actually have my miss Eileen speaks intro already loaded up in there as audio so if I press Start I would be live one Spreaker hey what the heck why not lets just do it and I dont know what I have in there nope I dont want to paste that in there Im just gonna say live okay alright so Im actually live one Spreaker so if you were to go to Spreaker and search for my name Ill have my URL off the top of my head sorry about that and heres a piece of audio thats already in here so now that Im over here I can let you guys hear some of these effects Ill turn this up a little bit cuz Im really electric right now so we had to get a little lightning in there and whats the rebate think about that oh thank you thank you thank you everyone thank you thank you so very much um class is dismissed okay do you really want to stop broadcasting yes now since Im really not going to post that your broadcast is finished oh its already published on Spreaker website so but you know theres nothing I can do about that except go back later on and delete it Oh fully Google didnt like me doing that Oh YouTube yes the chat is here public YouTube live yes all right oh well guys it didnt want me to go back and forth like that lets see what happens if I shut some things down mmm try one more time lets put up the ugh check give everybody thats and the chat and actually yes giving me the yo bowling balls bummer yeah so just to say hi to everybody who came through there was Larry and then there was Tish came over Pam from Tech Talk live and then Sheila was here okay Ive been testing YouTube live via OBS yes Larry you and a whole lot of other people have been testing YouTube live oh yes oh boy I dont uh you know I dont know what to say about that I guess Im not sure what the big advantage of it is I know that Im having a little tech difficulties Im going to nail and whatever this difficulty is of why this screen-sharing is stopping on me but I know that because Im going back and forth from the phone and then also sharing things on my desktop as you saw just now that was the problem here and so it could be just related to my computer in which case OBS wouldnt help me okay so so yes the super chat yes and then also my girl Sheila Hensley was here earlier as well so since we showed that one thats all so Im going to say stop and I get the bowling ball when it does that so this is what makes me think that it may be my computer because I now have to wait for the bowling ball to stop twirling around and then now it tells me that I am screen-sharing but of course Im not okay I just want to go over to patreon real quick and even though youre over here now Tish so I still want to give you a shout out over on the patreon the side so I think I answer all the questions but let me just go back to the chat the YouTube chat Oh Shelly still here hey Sheila can I get back on my phone and share so he could see me yes thats I was going to do that as well Larry and hopefully you guys have questions so dont oh yeah i minimized it okay so yeah and remember Larry last time I did that there was really bad syncing issues so well see if we still have syncing issues not just cuz Im actually going to open up the app first that I want to use which is actually going to just be the record camera app and lets turn it yeah it looks like its gonna be a little thinking problems Im looking at myself even before to screech it okay so now we got a little transition while I stop one screen share and start another and come on guys type in some questions what give me your initial reaction to the apps I share which were twitch facebook audio Spreaker audio YouTube live and switcher on Facebook andor YouTube which ones do you like or can I use loom yeah maybe that might make more sense for me to try to use alone cuz right now lets just no I dont know if I can use loom you know why because both of those the hangouts as a Chrome extension and loom is a Chrome extension and then my camera would definitely be confused about what tool is supposed to be using so its okay if you guys dont have any questions that happened to me as well when I screen share in my broadcast last even oh I must say there must have been after I went to sleep Pam I didnt know you had that problem too so you cant push out pre-recorded audio through Facebook live so how does SME do it well theyre using Wirecast Larry social media examiner is using Wirecast I thought you knew that wait a minute so you do have questions hang on okay and I didnt say that you cant push it out pre-recorded audio through Facebook live I didnt say that I was just showing you how I do it Im not saying you cant but like I said they use wire cast and oh but the one that Maria and David are are pushing is called vmix and you know what the vmix is the one that legal and best was talking about way back in blab days so when Abe said vmix I was like I knew about him and Ive never tried it before but the mix is what Luria uses and also someone else that I was watching and they said yeah Luria is the one who told me about this I was just watching a live stream the other day and they gave her credit for talking about vmix but honestly I cant remember who that was I want to say it was Owen himself but mmm oh maybe it was Leslie Samuel because you know hes going live on YouTube now as well and it could have been him Im not sure which ones but theyre you know when it comes to all the high tech solutions for bringing audio in and all the different things that we should I should easily be able to do on YouTube and since Pam had the problem too that lets me know its not just me so you know I think hey guys just getting to listening part and for sneaking in hey beauty no problem sneaking any time my dear unfortunately you came when you wont be able to see my lovely fish I have to watch the replay and because I gave up on trying to show my face here and Im trying to think is there any other way I could do it besides with my phone I guess I could try to open up screencast-o-matic but thats thats really mm-hmm no issue lol yeah so yeah so guys get got more questions for me Oh Sheila said lots of moving parts Eileen great job explaining oh youre a better techie that then I to keep it all going thanks Sheila and actually using all low-tech stuff and I just wanted to show you guys that you have so many options and you you know you can do it easily on your phone because I know most folks have Android phones and lets see Spreaker definitely has an Android app twitch I believe also has an Android app yeah twitch has an Android app because I know our frados on twitch I dont know if he uses it on his phone but they also have a desktop app so of course Facebook audio you can still you can also do with your Android phone and of course YouTube live you can do with your Android phone so the only thing that I showed today that you cant do on Android is the switcher the switcher studio app that is definitely ios only app and theyve you know many times people have asked them about Android and theyre just not an Android game you know how to save battery power how to save battery power out and about and streaming live save battery power know you cant really save battery power Larry because youre live streaming so if youre out and about youre gonna need as much battery power as possible so you cant really save it what you need to do is make sure you have that backup battery you know its one reason why I dont do a lot of outdoor live streaming you know you guys had a treat when the summer when I set out on the front lawn and I probably could have set out there today but you know I wanted to use desktop and show you guys these apps but you know if youre out and about live streaming you need to have battery backup theres not much you can do to save on battery power unfortunately you know and as these phones get more and more advanced chat with patreon seems to be lagging like delays do you see me island yeah I see you honey Im sorry I I actually saw you while the whole time I was addressing Larrys question so would not miss your cuteness ever all thanks beauty hey need a new Mac who Larry you do or I do Im confused now if I need a new Mac or not because you know the $5, 000 price tag has me a little very confused cuz Im not gonna buy a new old version of the Mac well Ill get the new Mac I have to get the new ones that dont come out until I dont know Christmastime or whatever they start at like five grand like what who does that only Apple hashtag Ilene YouTube church and hashtag Ilene fun Thank You Tish yeah the patreon chat is a little delayed but Jen you also have to remember that the YouTube article is delayed what do you do to prep before going live do you go do a run-through of what youre going to share Larry absolutely and today that was really important and Im so glad I did open all these apps because you know not only did iOS just update to iOS 11 they have pushed out you know you had 11.1 11.2 I think were up to 11 point three so Ive updated my phone I think the last time I updated it was Thursday and when you do that a lot of these app you have to log back in to them again and especially if were switcher I dont remember much richer password I dont even remember what I allowed them with I literally had to go to the big file that I had with all my passwords look it up and then log in before I started so Im glad I did that also Spreaker what Spreaker was fine but I wanted to check that because like I said I know that the connections get broken when you update your app and then Facebook with the switcher app also had to sign in to Facebook now it remembered my YouTube logon but it didnt remember my facebook blog on go figure I dont know because remember I had just loud into switcher app but it remembered face they remembered YouTube but it didnt remember Facebook which is in a way is good because with YouTube is to factor identification of authentication and then I would have had to get the code that wouldve took me extra three even four minutes right there playing around with that code because what people dont but they dont understand with that two-factor authentication is like myself I cant remember a six digit number so I got a scramble to get a pencil right and you know the little notifications dont flash long enough for you to actually you know keep focused on it you just like let me see I can remember this number real quick down if I can remember it oh my god let me get a pencil oh my god it was gone so now I gotta go into my messenger its a its just a big rigmarole as you get older these are things to worry about okay so yes so I just like I said I had already made another list a good memory building skills though that doesnt work for me to build my memory skills though that I wish I wish it did work that way honey sorry it doesnt but oh I cant lets see if I can do this mmm all right let me try one last screen share let me try one last one Im gonna try one last quick time bear with me guys I definitely want to answer Larrys question dragging it out so you know maybe just Green Sharon will start up again Im seeing the little bouncing ball and you know I did say a promise Andrew effect that I might test that was owned but I you know its only so many hours in the day I have to actually teach myself how to use it I know that Pam has used it before and I have I have it on my computer but I got to figure out if Im going to upgrade and get an upgrade to plan and all that and I just did I was maxed out on thinking about all of that so this isnt working I just wanted to show you my little list of the apps that I had written down thats all there was anything really impressive okay now its finally this let me do something here lets try let me try it another thing you said Im trying to load up the Loom now and no loom wont load so if something has something to do with hangouts because that hangout app maybe I need to uninstall that and reinstall that and maybe thatll you dont have any antivirus or backup services running no on a Mac I dont have any anti viruses and no I dont have anything running in the background nope and you know Larry it is just started doing this well I shouldnt say just doing it it started doing it I dont know how long ago thats been hang on trying to get this together here its been months now yeah and so it wasnt doing that prior but for three years it wasnt it wasnt doing it at all so I didnt do anything different oh my you know and then sometimes its fine sometimes I never have a problem and I dont know it seems like it gets to a certain threshold and then it just doesnt want me to go any further with so Im trying to do a workaround right now and its taken thank you guys for your patience and dealing with the technical difficulties dont worry this part will all get chopped off the end of the YouTube article thank God for the enhancements tool in YouTube someone said to me the other day well they got rid of the YouTube editor I said yes but this article isnt shown that YouTube editor is shown the enhancements tool but guess what they were right inside of that article I did a little segue and started talking about the YouTube editor but Im so glad they said it and brought it to my attention because what I did was I went and used the enhancements tool and chopped out that part where I was talking about the YouTube editor tada because thats the number one most watched article on my youtube channel so I definitely was glad that I was able to go in here and fix it and um okay so lets try this one last time one last-ditch effort okay you get to see me on a vertical side of things and I guess everything is backwards but yeah you see I this was my notes prior to this article switch Facebook audio Spreaker audio YouTube live and switcher is is there a lag just a little bit its not that bad too many tabs and Chrome browser Chrome is such a resource hog I have I only have three open and and I definitely can shut one down cuz thats just a Google Drive dock to paste my chat in when were done and I have the window open with your you know the pop-out chat so yeah so you know I won after all this time I finally downloaded OBS I still prefer hangouts yeah Beauty what are you what are you focusing now on with your YouTube articles I dont know if youve made a change in direction of your content but Im you know glad I see you yes but sometimes I just dont get a chance to watch but felt some pressure to get going with OBS I feel absolutely no pressure to get gone with OBS is it just me am i little weird OB has never did impressed me I had you know even though Im having these little glitches with YouTube I guess part of what Im doing now is trying to see what that threshold is of when I just maybe I should just screen share once or twice but today was special I wanted to make sure I showed you at least five apps and I know I already knew that I was going to be cutting off the end of this article because after you know all the questions and all that this only for you folks people that are here live the people replay viewers wont get to see this or what Im talking about now and all of that other stuff the charts I am back to the charts and trading study oh great good for you good for you so you know thats thats your wheelhouse and so keep doing it because you got to be consistent and I definitely want to say that to you guys and thats reason why Im talking about these using these apps on your phone because this consistency is just so friggin important people its almost like you have to train people you know and I hate even thinking that way and using that mindset because I dont like for people to do it to me but I just see it over and over and over again when you disappoint people because youre not there they turn you off they tune you out theyre like she was doing those live streams every week and then she missed two weeks she didnt even say she was going away she didnt give any excuse she didnt say like Im going to be on vacation next week so Im not gonna be like you know or whatever she just abandoned us so were gonna find somebody else who goes live on Saturday afternoons or Sunday afternoons and thats just how it goes and you know Pam okay Im saying hi okay you know and like I mentioned and Ill reiterate this for those who did not hear me say one of the things that like really hit home when I went to the YouTube creator day was about people not getting in notifications come people complaining about not getting notifications that their creator their favorite creator went live and the truth of the matter is your app theyre absolutely right and its not a glitch its not a glitch what it is is that your subscribers are subscribed to more people than this you and if four five or six of those people go live that day that you go live or they publish articles that day YouTube is going to give it to the first few people and then after that it doesnt want to keep sending people notifications all day long so I just use the arbitrary number just now lets have four or five it maybe three they may say were not sending any more than three notifications to somebodys phone or via email a day three is the max thats it and you know I think there is a little different threshold for the phone versus email because people will tend to put up with emails a little bit more but what notification and you know some people have notifications that make their phone vibrate or play different tones and all that and they know that if people will get annoyed if theyre constantly banging or tinging or vibrating all day long so they dont want users us because remember were probably bigger Watchers of YouTube than we are creators of YouTube articles right you dont want your phone dinging five and six times a day because somebody went live on YouTube and if youre like me you subscribe to hundreds of channels right and a lot of people do I know a lot of people subscribe to a lot of channels cuz thats still not enough because youve got so many people you subscribe to they dont put out regular articles consistently so theres that okay so you cant really always depend one YouTubes notifications and if you think YouTubes notifications arent good yeah try to depend on Facebooks notifications and see what I get you okay its not gonna get you to farted now theyre calling it the Bell squad instead of the notification squad on YouTube theyre calling it the Bell squad okay to ring that Bell and you know I know all the YouTube gurus want to tell you to make sure you tell everybody to hit that notification well I like what what we all decided everybody in patreon and you know my patrons we all agreed that because I asked you guys would you want me to notify you on Facebook and you guys are all in a group on Facebook and so thats how Im notifying you through the messenger app now people get those notifications okay Facebooks not throttling their messenger at notification because they know people have them turned on because they want to get those notifications okay so this is just about a different type of mindset there okay so so I hope that is helpful for you but you know I do want to see you guys be consistent I gotta give credit congratulations to Pam you know not only does she get her certification or she also did that live-streaming challenge and I had done a live streaming challenged you guys probably remember back in the summer I did and but it was specifically a Facebook live-streaming challenge sorry Im looking at that screen I forgot look at this one it was a Facebook live-streaming challenge of seven days and we had ball if you havent seen that over on my Facebook page head over there to basic blog tips I put them all in a playlist and most of them are short no theyre not like these YouTube live streams that go on for hours so most of them are pretty sure and just fun fun you know but I challenge you guys to do that go on your page live going your group go live every day for a week and I guarantee youll get results because not only will people know youre gonna tell them Im doing a challenge Im gonna be back every day right so theyre gonna be on the lookout for you but also Facebook will get that signal and Facebook will you know now Im not saying you have to do a Facebook challenge it could be YouTube it could be wherever I mean could kind of rabbinic even be periscope if thats what you want to do but tell people its not a challenge if you just go live every day right you gotta tell people Im doing a challenge Im on day one Im on day five um whatever because then theyre in it with you and they know shes going to be back tomorrow shes going to be back tomorrow you see what I mean so this help this is another way to help build your community help build engagement and all of that by doing those little challenges now you dont want to make people weary you know like I did 365 days live over on blab but I didnt tell everybody I was doing a challenge I was challenging myself to do it live right and luckily I aint got it in and actually I did more than 365 before they eventually shut the platform down so theres that so anyway I think theyre fun I think the short ones not vlog every day in a month nobody first of all you dont have time to do it every day you dont have a month worth of ideas and nobody had time to watch you every day out of mom you probably only want to see all your loved ones every day of the month except maybe your kids maybe thats too much five days seven days perfect or even ten Ted perfect but beyond that its just too much its just way too much so of course these are all just my opinion youre perfectly welcome to prove me wrong go ahead and start your 31 day challenge and let me know if by a day 14 you dont run out of ideas or run out of steam okay yes the challenge is Pam said the challenges boost your analytics yes I did a little bit of a live stream after I did my seven-day challenge actually Ive shared it on an anchor I shared my results and you know it was like two hundred and fifty percent more views and you know incredible numbers incredible you know and so and people enjoy them they have fun because they know youre doing a challenge too so I stick to one platform whichever one it is that youre trying to grow you know just stick to that one because those are the people that are following along if you popping around to different platforms and you know now what I did was I multicasts it so I did Spreaker Live and Facebook because it was a facebook life challenge right also Tinys Freaker then another day I tied in twitch you know I dont think I ever did it with YouTube oh I did it with anchor I even though anchors not really live but I just tied it in with another service but the challenge was for Facebook so I think that makes it more effective oh and I think about it you could just start at any time you know you dont you dont have to UM launch it like its a big product launch or anything like that you just fake tomorrow okay Im sorry to challenge everybody everyday you can make it around the same time or at least in that stream you tell them now tomorrow Ill do it in the morning or Ill do it in the afternoon you just let people know and its fun you have fun with your folks so you guys let me know if you want some tips on doing challenges and how to do them effectively and all that and maybe Ill put have your own challenge thats right yeah you just gave me an idea light bulb moment look out for the announcement tomorrow yeah thats what Im here for to motivate you guys and spark ideas and and all that good stuff you know well once you do it right yeah and I gotta speak from experience I cant just say oh I saw sauce over there doing and I heard about it yall know me I like to talk about what I do I mean no were not somebody does something dont mean it that way yall know what I mean I said I was saying and I was like I aint like the way that came out but yall know what I mean I like to speak from experience and I like for you guys to speak from experience right so you dont have to say yes my friend miss I mean she did you could say she encouraged me and then I did such and such such and then after a year or so you wont even be talking about how I encouraged you youll be encouraging your tribe okay so I cant you know I always got random notes laying around 100 when I went to my a Webre Meetup oh my gosh hey Webber somebody else said to me you know I posted on Instagram I did my Instagram story about the Aweber Meetup everybody was so happy for me and everything and and one person said to me I used convertkit and Im thinking well so I dont know why you let lets say got to do with me going to a meet-up but a weber but its okay where does it tell me they use convertkit at least he was engaging with me or whatever so i said you know i have loyalty to whoever and if you guys havent been following my stories my Instagram my my teachings and things that Ive been saying about Aweber let me tell you one of the best feelings was being at the Meetup right and um there was probably about 30 folks there or whatever and folks they moved the room where they hold the meetups so they hold the meetups in an even bigger room which is really their cafeteria because I know if youve seen any of my pictures from Aweber they have a cafeteria where they actually have a chef now he wasnt there for the Meetup but like if you work at a Weber you never have to buy lunch breakfast lunch or dinner because theres a chef and a sous chef there to cook your meals like they have a menu but if you need something thats off the menu they cook it for you thats what Im talking so anywho so two things happen let me tell you a little thing first so they have one of those displays where they flash up different pictures or messages and years ago I noticed that I used to be in that rotation because if you use the hashtag Aweber in life you get added to that so the first thing I noticed was that I wasnt under rotation and they changed it they dont have peoples pictures in there or not but before I even got a chance to get salty about that I looked and they have the pictures actually print it out and post it along the wall in this long hallway so many pictures so you know me Im walking down that long hallway look who must face and then I was talking to one of the guys thats hes been there for about a year and I was telling him you know how long Ive been coming to the meetups and all that so when I found my picture I said Jake Jake come here heres my picture and it was me and Lynette and but it was hunter because they dont work there anymore Hunter was standing with my daughter in that picture and we were just gonna hes like oh yeah yeah and my picture is in the front row and when I have to tell you just is a long long long hallway rows worth of pictures theres hundreds and hundreds easily a thousand pictures on this wall Oh easily so that was my first little you know happy moment and then two minutes later Im standing this woman and I like getting to know each other whatever and the owner walks in and he was just walking through as hes on his way cuz he doesnt come to the meet ups or anything like that needs to owner the company hey when he saw me his face lit up and he came right over to me and hug oh that is so sweet I mean I know he knows who I am but the fact that he just felt that saying warm and fuzzy feeling that I felt seeing him and then you know posted our uh sees so you can go over to Twitter I dont think I posted on Instagram I posted on Twitter and see the I see that I took with the owner Tom Calder he is the guy who actually invented the autoresponder very smart young man so anyway I was telling somebody that I have basic blog tips and they said oh you should have advanced blog tips too huh gosh darn it they gonna make me register another domain so if youre listening dont go out there and steal my domain hey Yankees outdoor adventure hi honey so anyway I have a lot of loyalty to a Weber and you know it paid off it was so nice of them to think of me when they had that extra pass for the heroic public speaking speaking conference which is by far the best conference that Ive been to far as personal development and all that and I was just truly truly grateful because I mean they have hundreds and thousands of customers and a bunch of advocates but for some reason they thought of me so I thought that was pretty darn cool so so thats whats the big thing that happened to me this in the past week seen Tom being up on the wall of fame at eight Weber thats so my fair ladies and gents with my lord Jack leg work around screen share oh where theres a will theres a way and it doesnt look like you guys have any more questions and jinkies make sure oh guys make sure you click those three dots and follow it subscribe to each other its mandatory around here and everybody in here has good stuff anyway you know Pam Larry Sheila Yankees Tish is gonna start doing something so I know she is when she comes out there shes gonna knock your socks off start doing some of those you can do those slideshow articles and show all your products and all that stuff so is this the sixth way to go live yes it is so we love you Eileen thank you sweetie ah yes this is the sixth way to go live actually I did show six ways cuz I showed you Spreaker desktop and Spreaker phone and then I also showed you switcher Facebook and switcher so I really showed you seven so this is kind of eight yeah theres that so I definitely have to cut off the end of this article because I dont want anybody think that Im just using clickbait titles you know I said I was gonna show five I show eight thats clickbait right oh gosh okay guys and gals youre really swell I love my little community but whos counting nobodys counting for sure just this little piece of paper for when I when I add up to just when I edit the description now I could put this paper behind here and flip the camera around but what I did oh heres a little this is a little tip for you I cant really show you this tip but I yeah I can show you this part because some of these apps that Im showing you when you start to go live the camera is facing the other way just like periscope right the camera is facing the front-facing camera right front rear whichever month the one thats showing that would be showing this light pole that I have here or my curtains and yall dont want to see that so what I did was Ill show you real quick oh Ill just put the camera around so you can see thats all black right okay YouTube you cant mess with me for flipping my phone camera around Kenny okay so reason why its all black is because I took one of Nicoles business cards from her other company her sister company the lighter creative which is black and heres the piece of double stick tape that I have one here and I use that to cover up that front facing camera so that even if I accidentally Im in the wrong flip you just see black and thats the tenth tip of the day and trust me its only for yall and if you dont have double stick tape it dont matter just put some duct tape on there but you want to make sure is duct tape doesnt stick to your phone case cuz that wouldnt be good okay guys alright I shoot vids facing the back of a camp so I dont get distracted by the image of myself cold and yeah hashtag basic blog tips Rox yes and I thank you guys and please please please um leave comments over on patreon because those comments will stay and if you have questions or if you have suggestions for the next live stream because the next live stream will probably be a patron only live stream Ill mean next weekend I mean the next one but I dont know what day thats gonna be but its gonna be between now and then cuz I like to do it well my hair still done its probably gonna be tomorrow but I just dont have my topic yet so for you patrons or even if youre not a patron leave your topic request over there on patreon and that link to patreon is you know what Im gonna post it into the chat because I think I can do that so everybody will have the link and this is gonna give you enough time to go over there to that post because that post is going to stay public now okay let me explain to you how this works once I end this article its gonna take a while for YouTube to encode the article if somebody comes along in the next half an hour lets say theyre going to be able to watch the whole entire article okay so if thats you youre watching the replay hey so before that encoding happens I wont be able to make any edits on the article itself I wont be able to upload a thumbnail or go into that enhancements tool and trim off the end of course I can edit the description and the tags and all that stuff and plus Ill have to go into Photoshop shop and actually make the thumbnail so theres that alright so after you know depending upon how long the actual live stream is that determines you know the length of time it takes YouTube to encode the article and I guess of course theyre not just encoding my article right theyre encoding and uploading all the billions of people for hours or articles that get uploaded every two seconds or whatever on YouTube so when all thats done then I could go in there and upload the thumbnail and trim off now the other thing that I have to keep into consideration is my closed captions so heres another reason why I like to trim the article down because then its so much easier for me to edit the closed captions so if I add in screens to the article before I go in there and trim off all this extra oh wait I left out a step first thing I do when everything is done is I download the article cuz Im gonna keep this whole entire article on my computer thats real important so Im I mean I wasnt prepared to have the step by step I had this written down okay you know I can get my thumbnail ready change my description and that and as the article was encoding as soon as it stops encoding I can download the article that takes a while to okay thats probably another reason my computer might be moving slow like I live articles so but I have terabytes of storage on my computer so Im good to go so anyway so I download the article and then I trim because if I put end cards on the article and then I go in there and trim it those end cards get lost I got to go back in there later and put them back on anyway so I dont even put the end cards on until after Ive determined how to trim it now meanwhile as YouTube is not only transcoding the article theyre also creating those auto captions which is what I use to make my captions I just edit their auto captions and as time has gone by and Ive been you know doing YouTube so long they are really really good at determining what Im saying you know I mean very good theres a lot of times when I rarely have to edit other than my name of course I always have to edit that but it used to be that they didnt even know I was saying eileen they thought I was saying smiling or you know I am smiling but at least now they just spell it with the e so it wouldnt be the worst thing in the world if somebody actually saw it that way but very minimal editing that I have to do on those captions it is so worth it if you arent editing your captions or if youre not creating captions transcripts I call it the same thing if youre not doing that I highly advise you to do that not only because you know people say well does it affect the algorithm in a search and dont worry about that it affects people who cant listen to it because theyre at work or theyre on the bus or theyre just a 1 turn down and theyre doing theyre multitasking maybe and one of the things youre doing is reading your captions but then theres also your death death YouTube viewer and theres a lot of people who watch YouTube who are deaf so you know thats really important that you do that okay so and I have I think it also helps with people who use voiceover you know folks who are visually impaired so I highly recommend that you do that and even on those articles that I leave that are really long two three hours even on those articles I will go in and at least edit the first 10 minutes even if I dont do the whole entire article I will edit the captions of the beginning of the article so that at least they can get idea who I am what the topic is of that particular article so you can do that you dont have to just say oh that articles too long forget it Im not doing any of it at least do the first five 10 minutes because its only gonna take you 10 minutes or less because as you like I said as you keep adding it remember theres machine learning and YouTube has it down to a science better than anybody else and you know cause like I showed you guys earlier that transcription that came from Ankur all know is its pretty horrible you gotta go in and edit almost every worse maybe not every word okay but though you always keep him sure first of all segments or anchors only five minutes but you wont want to transcribe your whole youre only gonna transcribe a segment thats less than a minute okay so if its less than a minute I would say at least 80 of though that youre gonna have to edit its just – thats why I keep mine really short like maybe 20 seconds because its very tedious to go in there but YouTubes transcription and as they get to learn how you speak it gets much easier so so Oh YouTube Church you have to fill in all the words whats required to do it oh I have a whole article to show how to do how to edit the captions Yankees let me get that article up for you my dear and that article is old but guess what it is still the same exactly the same instructions today YouTube has not changed that interface at all okay so hang on I got it typing captions some people say theres actually my friend Owen he says that I got on his case about that he thinks that I threw shade I am when he interviewed me Owen him sad because he has a article that explains the difference between captions and transcriptions because there is a technical difference but when he interviewed me I kind of joked and I said aint really no difference but I was just kidding and then Nick Newman said does she just bust on you that article was worth watching if you never saw that interview that Owen and Nick did with me we had so much fun if Im gonna give you the link to that to Eileen that link slash own and its a YouTube article though he didnt they didnt put that more on YouTube for some reason because speak to him about that as a matter of fact I mean that link oe take you to the Facebook page but the article about how to edit your YouTube article captions its only a three minute article thats that length the first link I post sit there but Yankees and my Israel Worth and yeah yeah like Yankees this definitely something that wed be needed for your channel because Im sure then you have an audience you know of people who want to watch your article and there cant hear maybe there maybe theyre out doing their camping or hiking or whatever order with their family and their family is doing something else you know and so theyre watching it but what youre saying the instructions that youre giving or so would be so easy for them to consume you know with the captions on a lot of times youre showing stuff where your face is not on camp right youre showing youre the outdoor scene and so with the captions oh gosh that would just add such a great enhancement to your articles to make it easy for people to never actually have the audio turned on you know if theyre whatever theyre watching or consuming conditions or habits are so its definitely worth it especially on those short articles just spend a day and go in and do all your short articles just have them all done and then go back later on with those longer articles especially the live streams go back later on and just do them when you can but they do two short ones and get them knock them out and then like I said as you start correcting it YouTube starts to learn your your lingo how you say certain words for some reason it always thinks Im saying one when I say on YouTube listen one one now listen to me machine alright girl are you true royal families in the heels whats up baby girl hi hello alright or my its a lady or a guy or tutorial family thanks for advice as always oh youre welcome Yankees you know the thing like I said dont always just think about the algorithm because once yall we all master the algorithms Oh guarantee you YouTube will change it so think about your viewers your viewer experience if you have someone who stumbles across your channel and they are deaf they could be somebody who has a community of of deaf outdoorsman and they say lets watch this channel because he always has his captions in there you just never never know right but even if you only help them one person isnt that what its all about seriously I mean of course we all want to reach the masses but if you can impact one person and you know make their world a little bit better that should make your day alright it makes my thats why Im still sitting here because I feel like Im making an impact on you guys and you know youre picking up tips and tricks here and there and I love that and you know and I know that you will take action youll be proactive I dont like talking to people that dont take action but I got my action takers in the house boy oh boy okay action takers patrons and YouTube Bell spot notifications glide or Bell squad I heard that Owen coined that phrase of it summit this week my thing was Owen yeah somebody said it I didnt actually hear Owen say it but instead of calling it notification squad they called it the bell squad ring that little bell okay how is your office looking oh its a little messy right now because what had happened was I have these mics and I couldnt find this piece to go to the bottom of this mic if yall be patient oh Im gonna run and get then I started to bring the mic out earlier but somethings you didnt go show that my but now I feel like I need to show the mic so stay right there okay so you remember I introduced you to this CAD you 37 mic and that lovely little stand okay but that one didnt work with my iPhone right so then I remembered that this one which is really my baby and the one that I started with before that Oh 80 are 2100 which is what Im on now my baby the samsung co 3 you whoo and its little Stanford ass so I can actually use this to broadcast on anchor now for one cuz anchor supports external microphones and this can be powered by my iPhone so to get to your question though hows the room coming along I had to tear a whole bunch of stuff apart looking for this little piece that goes onto the bottom of the mic why is the mic and one box and the piece in another box I dont know but I still have a setup that I can do my yoga and I didnt show yall the yoga setup Im sorry Ive thats thats not gonna happen today but so I cant still do my yoga near but that desk that I was shown which was is really a Oh sewing machine that is kind of covered with stuff now cuz I had to pull out one box it wasnt in there then they had to pull out another box and it was in there and and I was like fine I whole bunch of other goodies that I still dont know what they belong to but their attachments for different mics and different stands so right now theres kind of spread out because I wanted to get on here and do this live stream for you so maybe thatll be my project for tomorrow and if I get anything figured out Ill let you guys know what I figure out but yeah so now Im kind of still debating about this other spare room that I have which is a little bigger and thinking that that one might be better for the studio but the problem is that one is not cleared out but its all painted and everything so I would have to go in there pull up carpet well no I have to go in there throw out a bed do a whole lot of other reorganizing and purging and then yeah maybe I have a done by to begin in a year I wish yall livestream Watchers could come over here and help me might get done faster okay so I got a run alright Yankees buy and respect and have an awesome day you too my dear and tisha saying yes and true family is putting up I love those little emojis you have with the my with the musical note where you get that emoji from thats a special one unlike that so I used to use this to record my YouTube articles and the other thing that I found is the OL mic the one that you know when you put the headphone on and then the thing comes around my very first one Radio Shack $20 when I first found out I could I could be a YouTube star I still havent got there yet but anyway back in 2009 my very first article I used that Radio Shack $20 mic and I didnt care that you could hear me ah ah breathing like Darth Vader I did it I started back in 2009 for some wonder by watching those articles but they are there thanks for the awesome day I mean super cute I mean super cute thank you Eileen star hashtag I need star and with that guys I know you all have other things to do and I appreciate you so very much and I will definitely doubt will link see you here next weekend Im not sure if its gonna be Saturday or Sunday but next weekend I will be live on YouTube again and well try to figure out the challenge of whats going on with why the screen sharing does a fail so with that appreciate you guys for coming out have a wonderful day bye for now 5 Live Streaming Apps for iPhone and Android hi everyone my name is ileane smith and welcome back to another edition of learn to live stream with ms. ileane Im so glad youre joining me today because live streaming is really important and its really a great way for you to connect with your audience so today Id like to cover five live streaming apps that you can use on your iPhone now just to give you a little heads up some of these apps are for article live streaming which of course I love to do but then Im also going to share some audio live streaming apps because audio and podcasting is also a fantastic way for you to connect with your audience so lets start off with an app that youve never heard me talk about here before on this YouTube channel so lets go to the screen share and dive in the first app that I want to introduce you to is the twitch app now with the twitch app Im already logged into my account and Ive only used this app a few times but I thought that you know a lot of people know about twitch and using it for gaming but they also have a live-article aspect to it so I thought I would show it to you because you dont have to use it for gaming in fact they have a few different channels and as you see here heres the app heres my profile and where it says post and update and you see the little purple icon for the camera click that on and youll see that you describe your stream but you also let me paste in my title I already had that hopefully it will go with me pasting there you go whats a little stubborn okay but you also have the option to change to different categories so you have the IRL the creative social eating music or talk shows and since I like to talk Im gonna pick talk shows and then you can share that out on social media and so forth before you go live but lets just go ahead and start the stream now with a lot of these apps youll see that you need to rotate your camera I made the mistake once of rotating it the wrong way but it clearly it tells me which way to rotate it so I need to follow instructions so lets hope this goes all well with the tripod and bam it gets started and Im live now if there were folks there watching me I would see that over in the chat thats the area that you see off with the white and it says welcome to the chat room at the very top but I can hide that if I wish I can also when Im ready to go I can flip the camera around and this is really one of the reasons why I feel that they introduced this live streaming for you to actually go out maybe go to a gaming arcade or some type of live gaming event and so you really would have the camera flipped around for the most part unless youre the one whos actually actively playing some type of game okay so just wanted to show you that and while were here I would also highly recommend that when youre doing any kind of live-streaming I might as well mention this now this is really important if youre going live I recommend that you use this RODE smartlav and youll see the link in the description of this YouTube article for the rode smartlav mic especially if youre out and about and youve got all kinds of wind and all of that and you want to use a lavalier mic because that cuts down on that noise okay so now what we do in order to stop the stream tap on the screen and were just going to end that one okay and then I could come back later over on Twitch and I can post that out to my stream okay I see my friend Larry is here hey Larry if you want I put the link for the patreon page because this is actually embedded over on patreon even though its a public stream I put that link in the description over on YouTube so that everybodys chat can be saved but I wanted to leave that one open just in case someone hi Sheila how are you just in case someone decided to do a super chat I figured I wouldnt leave that open but just so you know if you look in the description of the YouTube article you you will see the link to the patreon post its a public post so anybody can see it today you know Ive done the patron only live streams but this one is public today Im just on just as many apps as I possibly can think of to be on right now so lets just hope that the screen sharing holds up ok so the next app that I want to show you remember I said at the beginning that were going to talk about article but were also going to talk about audio and one of the things I know most folks love to do is go live on Facebook right but did you know that Facebook also has live audio now I previously had a tutorial about how to do Facebook live audio and as a matter of fact its one of my more popular articles here on the channel and as fate would have it Facebook likes to move the cheese and I guess most people are figuring it out you have to go through an extra step now in order to turn on the live audio so let me show you how to do that real quick and lets get Facebook open first and make sure Im all logged in and then well go to the screen share okay as you know with Facebook you can go live on your page or your profile or on your groups okay so Im just going to go live and if you want to find your groups you hit the hamburger menu in this case the hamburger menu is at the bottom left Im sorry at the bottom right I should know Im using my right hand and you see theres your shortcut to some groups I dont just go into the work and focus group somebodys hangout and there anyway and I havent gone live in that group for a while so lets do that you would go and you would click on that live button and so this is where people may get a little confused because you may think that youre going live of audio and they I just noticed they actually changed the icon and see now a still says start live article and I dont know why Facebook is making this so complicated to do this but heres the trick the three little dots that are in the circle at the bottom right thats where live audio is hiding so when youre having a bad hair day you just go live on audio now I always recommend that you get a an image to upload and I think maybe I have one in my favorites at the top oh youre seeing all the little photos I took today wait a second hang on Im not sure how fast it will be for me to get to my favorites there you go theres my favorites all right heres the one for where should you go live so you have a cover image now I prefer if you notice at the bottom of this image I have black where it says ileanesmith.com and I think that its a good idea to have a dark image but an image thats dark on the bottom that way people can know that youre going live because they can see that waveform see that waveform thats quivering a little bit lets just go ahead and say done and now you can see a little bit better and that lets people know that your live audio okay so Im going to go ahead and paste in that title pasting is getting a little tricky for me today but well just keep at it until it lets me do it finally okay then of course once it does it start so pasting all this other stuff in there okay there you go now were done that and now I can start my live Audio Ill just make a quick announcement to my friends over in the group oh I had a little connection by oh there you go hey guys Im live over on YouTube but Im also posting this on my patreon page so if you head over to YouTube youll see the link there to go to patreon and that way the chat stays alive when Im done going through the five apps then Ill be taking your questions so whoops we had a little bit of a reconnection problem there thats okay guys if that happens just continue on with your broadcasts and in that case actually my phone crashed oh yeah I got a super chat from Larry thats Larrysnow.me Thank You Larry big shout out thank you so much and that was a super cute Saturday thats right a hashtag super to Saturday and yeah so my phone died but thats okay because we can carry on as its rebooting and just a little bit more of housekeeping so youll know how this is all going down Im using QuickTime to record because I noticed when I use a reflector app I was having little issues with the YouTube so maybe at this point it might just be my computer because now its even crashing with QuickTime so lets get this all back up and running here I guess I gotta start QuickTime up yes Sheila super cute Saturday thats actually my hashtag its one that I made up a long time ago but Larry knows about it Ive been using in fact I started the hashtag on snapchat and its been a while since are you snapchat regularly I still use it but not regularly like I used to so lets see if we can get this screen share back up and so when you go to QuickTime and Im pretty sure I did a article to show how to do this on QuickTime as well you just have to start a new movie and oh yeah your phone has to be plugged into your computer though with the USB and lightning cable okay so lets move on to our next app because the phone has rebooted yay all right so the next app that I want to show you is an another audio app and that is Spreaker now Spreaker does have an app for you to listen but when youre actually a broadcaster and you want to go live youll see this red app that says record or re see and so its actually setting up a little bit of a studio which is super cool now heres what I love about going live on Spreaker once you record your audio you can of course download it and then repurpose it or you can just make it live for people to listen to the replay as part of your podcast and that can go on iTunes if you want or if not you can just stay within the Spreaker community so one of the cool things they have is the ability to play different effects now I dont know if youre going to hear these right now no you cant hear the effects but that would be like a cheering crowd and then theres one when you want to have a school bell ringing so you would mix this in to your production of your audio and that is one of the things that I love about using Spreaker and you know like I said you can go live but the other thing I love about speakers they also have a similar app only much more sophisticated for your desktop so thats a great way to livestream you let your your audience know that youre on the Spreaker app and they can join in on the chat and they can even be on the website and can you add your own effects and Spreaker you absolutely can hi Pam and Larry yet you absolutely can add your own effects and Spreaker and so lets see I dont know if I have any on my phone right now but Ill show you where you could add them theres an empty slot at the bottom here where it says edit effects and I can get rid of any of the ones that are there and then drag and drop into my bring in my own so lets say for example want to get rid of this one and then if I have audio on my phone I can go to my music library or I can browse and I think you can also even bring in tracks from Dropbox now lets see well I dont want I dont want anything to crash there there you go so there and theres all the different locations that I can drag an audio so that was a great question Larry thanks so much for asking that because I was not going to go into that but its an excellent excellent point you always ask such great questions Larry Ill tell you you are a gem okay so we did twitch we did Facebook audio we did Spreaker audio and were gonna do something that hopefully doesnt crash the stream but were gonna just see if we can show a little bit about YouTube live without actually going live since were live okay lets do that yes I know a lot of folks have not had the opportunity to go live on YouTube yet and you know it depends upon how many subscribers you have so the great thing about going live on YouTube is that you dont oh isnt she cute shes already live and five people watching Hi five people hello hello Jeb type in the chat and say hi or a chat over on patreon Im gonna go to the patreon chat in a little bit so one of the great things about this is that you dont need a separate app okay you just use the regular YouTube app and up at the top where you see the camera icon you just tap that one and then you just tap one go live now I highly recommend that you turn your rotate your phone so you can be in landscape and its kind of flips things around so it does look a little bizarre but thats what you need to do and you also need to take it off of unlisted you know make it public just do that simply right here and dont think just because you see the black and white now thats okay that doesnt mean anything and then you would you know go live now you would add the title then it asked you to take a picture for the thumbnail and then you would go live now of course Ive got another tutorial here on the channel to show you guys how to do that and we dont want to go live with inside the life because we dont want to blow up my YouTube account okay is that a deal alright so lets get out of here alright and so lets do one more and this one is called switcher go and you may have seen me talk about switcher go before but the beauty of switcher go and be pay close attention guys for those of you who cannot go live on YouTube yet you may be able to go live using this switcher go app even if you dont have the required number of subscribers youre gonna have to give it a try because I dont know how YouTube is really trying to block folks that dont have the right number of subscribers yet but I was doing this YouTube live from my phone using the switcher go way before live-streaming ever rolled out to me because you know in the beginning they only had it for the big big time youtubers so we just click on YouTube and of course Im not gonna finish with the process but I just want you guys to see can you add an image as a thumbnail or just the screenshot Oh Larry you can add no you cannot add an image you only can add the screenshot they only let you take a picture of yourself as on YouTube live when you do it from your phone thats another advantage of using this switcher app because with the switcher app you can oh let me think about that its there a time when they asked me for the thumb now Im not sure lets lets just go through this here all right I already have a title in there okay and create your YouTube live stream now where I think about it I dont think it does ask me and Im not sure why Im upside-down but dont worry about that because youre gonna flip the camera around anyway now in this case I flipped it the opposite way that I did when I was on Twitch go figure so you know what I dont think oh I know how this one works one your YouTube desktop in the live-streaming section where you would use the encoder not the one that I typically use which is the event that thumbnail thats in there that will be the thumbnail that will carry through until you go later on and edit it and change it so if you use your phone so let me say that again on desktop we all have a live streaming area well everybody who has live-streaming turned on right you have the live streaming area on the sidebar of your YouTube channel over on the left hand side there is an option there to go live with an encoder so in a way this switcher app is acting as an encoder thats where you would upload your thumbnail your custom thumbnail then you would come on to this app and you when you log in it actually activates that live stream not an event which may be a little complicated for some folks to understand but just trust me just go live you can worry about the thumbnail later I will come back and watch this article later and then itll start making a little bit more sense to you hopefully you know you always can ask me questions you just go to smith.com slash contact and leave me a voicemail one speakpipe so there you go so now lets lets get out of this because I want to also show you that same app and its this reason why Im showing you this because this is like a bonus this is like a bonus okay because the same app to switch ergo app you can also use to go live one Facebook okay now the other added bonus which I hadnt mentioned yet about using this app is that youre able to bring in a pre-recorded article into your stream so lets just go over to a group once i click group i click done then it tells me to select a group well ill just do a test group that i have called I lead that live okay we have a title see how buggy it is this time Im pasting the title piece and Im just gonna paste it in the description too alright Im gonna say HD I dont know what the difference is between high quality and HD its okay its not that serious its only Facebook live because remember Facebook live only gives you 720p anyways not sure why they asked that question okay so now I think I still have the opportunity to flip my camera so Im gonna do that you guys dont see that but thats okay cuz I didnt and when I say flip I met horizontally now Im going to flip to the okay now you see me and I look to be oriented correctly because you can see my controls or on the side because I didnt actually go live yet I didnt push that red button well push that red button thats when I would actually go live so lets just go and explore some of the options that we have to at the bottom heres where you have that you can bring in additional media for example I can bring in my overlay my logo so you know Im doing this on an app I cant do this on the YouTube app I cant do it on the Facebook app but using a switcher app Im unable to bring in my branding pretty cool right okay lets turn it off because now Im going to show you how you can bring in additional media I think Im going to show you that anyway Im tapping on it so lets say no it cant access my I may have said no cuz I should be able to play that sorry about that guys I think I messed up so you know what Im gonna do Im gonna start that over Im gonna start that one over so let me stop screen sharing really quickly so what do you think so far guys as I try to regroup here oh and as a matter of fact I do need to stop over to patreon tsch my hashtag ologist is in the house shes over there on patreon hey Tish how are you my dear great to see you how do I do a live with a pre-recorded audio okay I would use Spreaker I bet you Spreaker and okay you know what Im gonna answer that question Larry but let me just do this one more time on the Facebook live and see if I did something wrong there because your questions come fast and furious and I just want to make sure that I do them one at a time so I can see that I have my head in the right place and then Ill come back and I want to dont want to go to my timeline I want to go to my group you guys already saw this part so just want to see if I did something wrong here were doing a live create livestream Im gonna flip my camera around and I will screen share as as soon as I verify that its actually going to work this time hows that oh it did yay okay so heres what Im showing you Im using the switcher go app to show pre-recorded content and my live stream so this was something that I had created over on anchor and its a little article that you know came from this is one of the things that they let you do a foreign tanker you can download your audio file and theyll transcribe it for you and make that a little article so I am showing you more apps than you probably this is the world record of apps and multitasking in one YouTube article dont you agree come on people all agree okay oh I know what thats the end of that oh yeah there you go that was the end of this anchor app thats what I get for bragging right okay so now pre-recorded audio onto a live audio mm-hmm let me regroup and bring up a different app because I wasnt even gonna show you this because I was talking about my phone only but Id rather show you on my desktop so lets hope the YouTube guides are in our favor at this time lets get out of this okay yeah you let me stay on okay great great and oh okay before I go to desktop let me get rid of that one and Spreaker has a desktop app mm-hmm better I gotta open it up before I can show it to you I was wondering why I couldnt find it I didnt have it open okay so you download this little piece of software which is the Spreaker studio and this time you may be able to hear it just through the speakers so I actually have my miss Eileen speaks intro already loaded up in there as audio so if I press Start I would be live one Spreaker hey what the heck why not lets just do it and I dont know what I have in there nope I dont want to paste that in there Im just gonna say live okay alright so Im actually live one Spreaker so if you were to go to Spreaker and search for my name Ill have my URL off the top of my head sorry about that and heres a piece of audio thats already in here so now that Im over here I can let you guys hear some of these effects Ill turn this up a little bit cuz Im really electric right now so we had to get a little lightning in there and whats the rebate think about that oh thank you thank you thank you everyone thank you thank you so very much um class is dismissed okay do you really want to stop broadcasting yes now since Im really not going to post that your broadcast is finished oh its already published on Spreaker website so but you know theres nothing I can do about that except go back later on and delete it Oh fully Google didnt like me doing that Oh YouTube yes the chat is here public YouTube live yes all right oh well guys it didnt want me to go back and forth like that lets see what happens if I shut some things down mmm try one more time lets put up the ugh check give everybody thats and the chat and actually yes giving me the yo bowling balls bummer yeah so just to say hi to everybody who came through there was Larry and then there was Tish came over Pam from Tech Talk live and then Sheila was here okay Ive been testing YouTube live via OBS yes Larry you and a whole lot of other people have been testing YouTube live oh yes oh boy I dont uh you know I dont know what to say about that I guess Im not sure what the big advantage of it is I know that Im having a little tech difficulties Im going to nail and whatever this difficulty is of why this screen-sharing is stopping on me but I know that because Im going back and forth from the phone and then also sharing things on my desktop as you saw just now that was the problem here and so it could be just related to my computer in which case OBS wouldnt help me okay so so yes the super chat yes and then also my girl Sheila Hensley was here earlier as well so since we showed that one thats all so Im going to say stop and I get the bowling ball when it does that so this is what makes me think that it may be my computer because I now have to wait for the bowling ball to stop twirling around and then now it tells me that I am screen-sharing but of course Im not okay I just want to go over to patreon real quick and even though youre over here now Tish so I still want to give you a shout out over on the patreon the side so I think I answer all the questions but let me just go back to the chat the YouTube chat Oh Shelly still here hey Sheila can I get back on my phone and share so he could see me yes thats I was going to do that as well Larry and hopefully you guys have questions so dont oh yeah i minimized it okay so yeah and remember Larry last time I did that there was really bad syncing issues so well see if we still have syncing issues not just cuz Im actually going to open up the app first that I want to use which is actually going to just be the record camera app and lets turn it yeah it looks like its gonna be a little thinking problems Im looking at myself even before to screech it okay so now we got a little transition while I stop one screen share and start another and come on guys type in some questions what give me your initial reaction to the apps I share which were twitch facebook audio Spreaker audio YouTube live and switcher on Facebook andor YouTube which ones do you like or can I use loom yeah maybe that might make more sense for me to try to use alone cuz right now lets just no I dont know if I can use loom you know why because both of those the hangouts as a Chrome extension and loom is a Chrome extension and then my camera would definitely be confused about what tool is supposed to be using so its okay if you guys dont have any questions that happened to me as well when I screen share in my broadcast last even oh I must say there must have been after I went to sleep Pam I didnt know you had that problem too so you cant push out pre-recorded audio through Facebook live so how does SME do it well theyre using Wirecast Larry social media examiner is using Wirecast I thought you knew that wait a minute so you do have questions hang on okay and I didnt say that you cant push it out pre-recorded audio through Facebook live I didnt say that I was just showing you how I do it Im not saying you cant but like I said they use wire cast and oh but the one that Maria and David are are pushing is called vmix and you know what the vmix is the one that legal and best was talking about way back in blab days so when Abe said vmix I was like I knew about him and Ive never tried it before but the mix is what Luria uses and also someone else that I was watching and they said yeah Luria is the one who told me about this I was just watching a live stream the other day and they gave her credit for talking about vmix but honestly I cant remember who that was I want to say it was Owen himself but mmm oh maybe it was Leslie Samuel because you know hes going live on YouTube now as well and it could have been him Im not sure which ones but theyre you know when it comes to all the high tech solutions for bringing audio in and all the different things that we should I should easily be able to do on YouTube and since Pam had the problem too that lets me know its not just me so you know I think hey guys just getting to listening part and for sneaking in hey beauty no problem sneaking any time my dear unfortunately you came when you wont be able to see my lovely fish I have to watch the replay and because I gave up on trying to show my face here and Im trying to think is there any other way I could do it besides with my phone I guess I could try to open up screencast-o-matic but thats thats really mm-hmm no issue lol yeah so yeah so guys get got more questions for me Oh Sheila said lots of moving parts Eileen great job explaining oh youre a better techie that then I to keep it all going thanks Sheila and actually using all low-tech stuff and I just wanted to show you guys that you have so many options and you you know you can do it easily on your phone because I know most folks have Android phones and lets see Spreaker definitely has an Android app twitch I believe also has an Android app yeah twitch has an Android app because I know our frados on twitch I dont know if he uses it on his phone but they also have a desktop app so of course Facebook audio you can still you can also do with your Android phone and of course YouTube live you can do with your Android phone so the only thing that I showed today that you cant do on Android is the switcher the switcher studio app that is definitely ios only app and theyve you know many times people have asked them about Android and theyre just not an Android game you know how to save battery power how to save battery power out and about and streaming live save battery power know you cant really save battery power Larry because youre live streaming so if youre out and about youre gonna need as much battery power as possible so you cant really save it what you need to do is make sure you have that backup battery you know its one reason why I dont do a lot of outdoor live streaming you know you guys had a treat when the summer when I set out on the front lawn and I probably could have set out there today but you know I wanted to use desktop and show you guys these apps but you know if youre out and about live streaming you need to have battery backup theres not much you can do to save on battery power unfortunately you know and as these phones get more and more advanced chat with patreon seems to be lagging like delays do you see me island yeah I see you honey Im sorry I I actually saw you while the whole time I was addressing Larrys question so would not miss your cuteness ever all thanks beauty hey need a new Mac who Larry you do or I do Im confused now if I need a new Mac or not because you know the $5, 000 price tag has me a little very confused cuz Im not gonna buy a new old version of the Mac well Ill get the new Mac I have to get the new ones that dont come out until I dont know Christmastime or whatever they start at like five grand like what who does that only Apple hashtag Ilene YouTube church and hashtag Ilene fun Thank You Tish yeah the patreon chat is a little delayed but Jen you also have to remember that the YouTube article is delayed what do you do to prep before going live do you go do a run-through of what youre going to share Larry absolutely and today that was really important and Im so glad I did open all these apps because you know not only did iOS just update to iOS 11 they have pushed out you know you had 11.1 11.2 I think were up to 11 point three so Ive updated my phone I think the last time I updated it was Thursday and when you do that a lot of these app you have to log back in to them again and especially if were switcher I dont remember much richer password I dont even remember what I allowed them with I literally had to go to the big file that I had with all my passwords look it up and then log in before I started so Im glad I did that also Spreaker what Spreaker was fine but I wanted to check that because like I said I know that the connections get broken when you update your app and then Facebook with the switcher app also had to sign in to Facebook now it remembered my YouTube logon but it didnt remember my facebook blog on go figure I dont know because remember I had just loud into switcher app but it remembered face they remembered YouTube but it didnt remember Facebook which is in a way is good because with YouTube is to factor identification of authentication and then I would have had to get the code that wouldve took me extra three even four minutes right there playing around with that code because what people dont but they dont understand with that two-factor authentication is like myself I cant remember a six digit number so I got a scramble to get a pencil right and you know the little notifications dont flash long enough for you to actually you know keep focused on it you just like let me see I can remember this number real quick down if I can remember it oh my god let me get a pencil oh my god it was gone so now I gotta go into my messenger its a its just a big rigmarole as you get older these are things to worry about okay so yes so I just like I said I had already made another list a good memory building skills though that doesnt work for me to build my memory skills though that I wish I wish it did work that way honey sorry it doesnt but oh I cant lets see if I can do this mmm all right let me try one last screen share let me try one last one Im gonna try one last quick time bear with me guys I definitely want to answer Larrys question dragging it out so you know maybe just Green Sharon will start up again Im seeing the little bouncing ball and you know I did say a promise Andrew effect that I might test that was owned but I you know its only so many hours in the day I have to actually teach myself how to use it I know that Pam has used it before and I have I have it on my computer but I got to figure out if Im going to upgrade and get an upgrade to plan and all that and I just did I was maxed out on thinking about all of that so this isnt working I just wanted to show you my little list of the apps that I had written down thats all there was anything really impressive okay now its finally this let me do something here lets try let me try it another thing you said Im trying to load up the Loom now and no loom wont load so if something has something to do with hangouts because that hangout app maybe I need to uninstall that and reinstall that and maybe thatll you dont have any antivirus or backup services running no on a Mac I dont have any anti viruses and no I dont have anything running in the background nope and you know Larry it is just started doing this well I shouldnt say just doing it it started doing it I dont know how long ago thats been hang on trying to get this together here its been months now yeah and so it wasnt doing that prior but for three years it wasnt it wasnt doing it at all so I didnt do anything different oh my you know and then sometimes its fine sometimes I never have a problem and I dont know it seems like it gets to a certain threshold and then it just doesnt want me to go any further with so Im trying to do a workaround right now and its taken thank you guys for your patience and dealing with the technical difficulties dont worry this part will all get chopped off the end of the YouTube article thank God for the enhancements tool in YouTube someone said to me the other day well they got rid of the YouTube editor I said yes but this article isnt shown that YouTube editor is shown the enhancements tool but guess what they were right inside of that article I did a little segue and started talking about the YouTube editor but Im so glad they said it and brought it to my attention because what I did was I went and used the enhancements tool and chopped out that part where I was talking about the YouTube editor tada because thats the number one most watched article on my youtube channel so I definitely was glad that I was able to go in here and fix it and um okay so lets try this one last time one last-ditch effort okay you get to see me on a vertical side of things and I guess everything is backwards but yeah you see I this was my notes prior to this article switch Facebook audio Spreaker audio YouTube live and switcher is is there a lag just a little bit its not that bad too many tabs and Chrome browser Chrome is such a resource hog I have I only have three open and and I definitely can shut one down cuz thats just a Google Drive dock to paste my chat in when were done and I have the window open with your you know the pop-out chat so yeah so you know I won after all this time I finally downloaded OBS I still prefer hangouts yeah Beauty what are you what are you focusing now on with your YouTube articles I dont know if youve made a change in direction of your content but Im you know glad I see you yes but sometimes I just dont get a chance to watch but felt some pressure to get going with OBS I feel absolutely no pressure to get gone with OBS is it just me am i little weird OB has never did impressed me I had you know even though Im having these little glitches with YouTube I guess part of what Im doing now is trying to see what that threshold is of when I just maybe I should just screen share once or twice but today was special I wanted to make sure I showed you at least five apps and I know I already knew that I was going to be cutting off the end of this article because after you know all the questions and all that this only for you folks people that are here live the people replay viewers wont get to see this or what Im talking about now and all of that other stuff the charts I am back to the charts and trading study oh great good for you good for you so you know thats thats your wheelhouse and so keep doing it because you got to be consistent and I definitely want to say that to you guys and thats reason why Im talking about these using these apps on your phone because this consistency is just so friggin important people its almost like you have to train people you know and I hate even thinking that way and using that mindset because I dont like for people to do it to me but I just see it over and over and over again when you disappoint people because youre not there they turn you off they tune you out theyre like she was doing those live streams every week and then she missed two weeks she didnt even say she was going away she didnt give any excuse she didnt say like Im going to be on vacation next week so Im not gonna be like you know or whatever she just abandoned us so were gonna find somebody else who goes live on Saturday afternoons or Sunday afternoons and thats just how it goes and you know Pam okay Im saying hi okay you know and like I mentioned and Ill reiterate this for those who did not hear me say one of the things that like really hit home when I went to the YouTube creator day was about people not getting in notifications come people complaining about not getting notifications that their creator their favorite creator went live and the truth of the matter is your app theyre absolutely right and its not a glitch its not a glitch what it is is that your subscribers are subscribed to more people than this you and if four five or six of those people go live that day that you go live or they publish articles that day YouTube is going to give it to the first few people and then after that it doesnt want to keep sending people notifications all day long so I just use the arbitrary number just now lets have four or five it maybe three they may say were not sending any more than three notifications to somebodys phone or via email a day three is the max thats it and you know I think there is a little different threshold for the phone versus email because people will tend to put up with emails a little bit more but what notification and you know some people have notifications that make their phone vibrate or play different tones and all that and they know that if people will get annoyed if theyre constantly banging or tinging or vibrating all day long so they dont want users us because remember were probably bigger Watchers of YouTube than we are creators of YouTube articles right you dont want your phone dinging five and six times a day because somebody went live on YouTube and if youre like me you subscribe to hundreds of channels right and a lot of people do I know a lot of people subscribe to a lot of channels cuz thats still not enough because youve got so many people you subscribe to they dont put out regular articles consistently so theres that okay so you cant really always depend one YouTubes notifications and if you think YouTubes notifications arent good yeah try to depend on Facebooks notifications and see what I get you okay its not gonna get you to farted now theyre calling it the Bell squad instead of the notification squad on YouTube theyre calling it the Bell squad okay to ring that Bell and you know I know all the YouTube gurus want to tell you to make sure you tell everybody to hit that notification well I like what what we all decided everybody in patreon and you know my patrons we all agreed that because I asked you guys would you want me to notify you on Facebook and you guys are all in a group on Facebook and so thats how Im notifying you through the messenger app now people get those notifications okay Facebooks not throttling their messenger at notification because they know people have them turned on because they want to get those notifications okay so this is just about a different type of mindset there okay so so I hope that is helpful for you but you know I do want to see you guys be consistent I gotta give credit congratulations to Pam you know not only does she get her certification or she also did that live-streaming challenge and I had done a live streaming challenged you guys probably remember back in the summer I did and but it was specifically a Facebook live-streaming challenge sorry Im looking at that screen I forgot look at this one it was a Facebook live-streaming challenge of seven days and we had ball if you havent seen that over on my Facebook page head over there to basic blog tips I put them all in a playlist and most of them are short no theyre not like these YouTube live streams that go on for hours so most of them are pretty sure and just fun fun you know but I challenge you guys to do that go on your page live going your group go live every day for a week and I guarantee youll get results because not only will people know youre gonna tell them Im doing a challenge Im gonna be back every day right so theyre gonna be on the lookout for you but also Facebook will get that signal and Facebook will you know now Im not saying you have to do a Facebook challenge it could be YouTube it could be wherever I mean could kind of rabbinic even be periscope if thats what you want to do but tell people its not a challenge if you just go live every day right you gotta tell people Im doing a challenge Im on day one Im on day five um whatever because then theyre in it with you and they know shes going to be back tomorrow shes going to be back tomorrow you see what I mean so this help this is another way to help build your community help build engagement and all of that by doing those little challenges now you dont want to make people weary you know like I did 365 days live over on blab but I didnt tell everybody I was doing a challenge I was challenging myself to do it live right and luckily I aint got it in and actually I did more than 365 before they eventually shut the platform down so theres that so anyway I think theyre fun I think the short ones not vlog every day in a month nobody first of all you dont have time to do it every day you dont have a month worth of ideas and nobody had time to watch you every day out of mom you probably only want to see all your loved ones every day of the month except maybe your kids maybe thats too much five days seven days perfect or even ten Ted perfect but beyond that its just too much its just way too much so of course these are all just my opinion youre perfectly welcome to prove me wrong go ahead and start your 31 day challenge and let me know if by a day 14 you dont run out of ideas or run out of steam okay yes the challenge is Pam said the challenges boost your analytics yes I did a little bit of a live stream after I did my seven-day challenge actually Ive shared it on an anchor I shared my results and you know it was like two hundred and fifty percent more views and you know incredible numbers incredible you know and so and people enjoy them they have fun because they know youre doing a challenge too so I stick to one platform whichever one it is that youre trying to grow you know just stick to that one because those are the people that are following along if you popping around to different platforms and you know now what I did was I multicasts it so I did Spreaker Live and Facebook because it was a facebook life challenge right also Tinys Freaker then another day I tied in twitch you know I dont think I ever did it with YouTube oh I did it with anchor I even though anchors not really live but I just tied it in with another service but the challenge was for Facebook so I think that makes it more effective oh and I think about it you could just start at any time you know you dont you dont have to UM launch it like its a big product launch or anything like that you just fake tomorrow okay Im sorry to challenge everybody everyday you can make it around the same time or at least in that stream you tell them now tomorrow Ill do it in the morning or Ill do it in the afternoon you just let people know and its fun you have fun with your folks so you guys let me know if you want some tips on doing challenges and how to do them effectively and all that and maybe Ill put have your own challenge thats right yeah you just gave me an idea light bulb moment look out for the announcement tomorrow yeah thats what Im here for to motivate you guys and spark ideas and and all that good stuff you know well once you do it right yeah and I gotta speak from experience I cant just say oh I saw sauce over there doing and I heard about it yall know me I like to talk about what I do I mean no were not somebody does something dont mean it that way yall know what I mean I said I was saying and I was like I aint like the way that came out but yall know what I mean I like to speak from experience and I like for you guys to speak from experience right so you dont have to say yes my friend miss I mean she did you could say she encouraged me and then I did such and such such and then after a year or so you wont even be talking about how I encouraged you youll be encouraging your tribe okay so I cant you know I always got random notes laying around 100 when I went to my a Webre Meetup oh my gosh hey Webber somebody else said to me you know I posted on Instagram I did my Instagram story about the Aweber Meetup everybody was so happy for me and everything and and one person said to me I used convertkit and Im thinking well so I dont know why you let lets say got to do with me going to a meet-up but a weber but its okay where does it tell me they use convertkit at least he was engaging with me or whatever so i said you know i have loyalty to whoever and if you guys havent been following my stories my Instagram my my teachings and things that Ive been saying about Aweber let me tell you one of the best feelings was being at the Meetup right and um there was probably about 30 folks there or whatever and folks they moved the room where they hold the meetups so they hold the meetups in an even bigger room which is really their cafeteria because I know if youve seen any of my pictures from Aweber they have a cafeteria where they actually have a chef now he wasnt there for the Meetup but like if you work at a Weber you never have to buy lunch breakfast lunch or dinner because theres a chef and a sous chef there to cook your meals like they have a menu but if you need something thats off the menu they cook it for you thats what Im talking so anywho so two things happen let me tell you a little thing first so they have one of those displays where they flash up different pictures or messages and years ago I noticed that I used to be in that rotation because if you use the hashtag Aweber in life you get added to that so the first thing I noticed was that I wasnt under rotation and they changed it they dont have peoples pictures in there or not but before I even got a chance to get salty about that I looked and they have the pictures actually print it out and post it along the wall in this long hallway so many pictures so you know me Im walking down that long hallway look who must face and then I was talking to one of the guys thats hes been there for about a year and I was telling him you know how long Ive been coming to the meetups and all that so when I found my picture I said Jake Jake come here heres my picture and it was me and Lynette and but it was hunter because they dont work there anymore Hunter was standing with my daughter in that picture and we were just gonna hes like oh yeah yeah and my picture is in the front row and when I have to tell you just is a long long long hallway rows worth of pictures theres hundreds and hundreds easily a thousand pictures on this wall Oh easily so that was my first little you know happy moment and then two minutes later Im standing this woman and I like getting to know each other whatever and the owner walks in and he was just walking through as hes on his way cuz he doesnt come to the meet ups or anything like that needs to owner the company hey when he saw me his face lit up and he came right over to me and hug oh that is so sweet I mean I know he knows who I am but the fact that he just felt that saying warm and fuzzy feeling that I felt seeing him and then you know posted our uh sees so you can go over to Twitter I dont think I posted on Instagram I posted on Twitter and see the I see that I took with the owner Tom Calder he is the guy who actually invented the autoresponder very smart young man so anyway I was telling somebody that I have basic blog tips and they said oh you should have advanced blog tips too huh gosh darn it they gonna make me register another domain so if youre listening dont go out there and steal my domain hey Yankees outdoor adventure hi honey so anyway I have a lot of loyalty to a Weber and you know it paid off it was so nice of them to think of me when they had that extra pass for the heroic public speaking speaking conference which is by far the best conference that Ive been to far as personal development and all that and I was just truly truly grateful because I mean they have hundreds and thousands of customers and a bunch of advocates but for some reason they thought of me so I thought that was pretty darn cool so so thats whats the big thing that happened to me this in the past week seen Tom being up on the wall of fame at eight Weber thats so my fair ladies and gents with my lord Jack leg work around screen share oh where theres a will theres a way and it doesnt look like you guys have any more questions and jinkies make sure oh guys make sure you click those three dots and follow it subscribe to each other its mandatory around here and everybody in here has good stuff anyway you know Pam Larry Sheila Yankees Tish is gonna start doing something so I know she is when she comes out there shes gonna knock your socks off start doing some of those you can do those slideshow articles and show all your products and all that stuff so is this the sixth way to go live yes it is so we love you Eileen thank you sweetie ah yes this is the sixth way to go live actually I did show six ways cuz I showed you Spreaker desktop and Spreaker phone and then I also showed you switcher Facebook and switcher so I really showed you seven so this is kind of eight yeah theres that so I definitely have to cut off the end of this article because I dont want anybody think that Im just using clickbait titles you know I said I was gonna show five I show eight thats clickbait right oh gosh okay guys and gals youre really swell I love my little community but whos counting nobodys counting for sure just this little piece of paper for when I when I add up to just when I edit the description now I could put this paper behind here and flip the camera around but what I did oh heres a little this is a little tip for you I cant really show you this tip but I yeah I can show you this part because some of these apps that Im showing you when you start to go live the camera is facing the other way just like periscope right the camera is facing the front-facing camera right front rear whichever month the one thats showing that would be showing this light pole that I have here or my curtains and yall dont want to see that so what I did was Ill show you real quick oh Ill just put the camera around so you can see thats all black right okay YouTube you cant mess with me for flipping my phone camera around Kenny okay so reason why its all black is because I took one of Nicoles business cards from her other company her sister company the lighter creative which is black and heres the piece of double stick tape that I have one here and I use that to cover up that front facing camera so that even if I accidentally Im in the wrong flip you just see black and thats the tenth tip of the day and trust me its only for yall and if you dont have double stick tape it dont matter just put some duct tape on there but you want to make sure is duct tape doesnt stick to your phone case cuz that wouldnt be good okay guys alright I shoot vids facing the back of a camp so I dont get distracted by the image of myself cold and yeah hashtag basic blog tips Rox yes and I thank you guys and please please please um leave comments over on patreon because those comments will stay and if you have questions or if you have suggestions for the next live stream because the next live stream will probably be a patron only live stream Ill mean next weekend I mean the next one but I dont know what day thats gonna be but its gonna be between now and then cuz I like to do it well my hair still done its probably gonna be tomorrow but I just dont have my topic yet so for you patrons or even if youre not a patron leave your topic request over there on patreon and that link to patreon is you know what Im gonna post it into the chat because I think I can do that so everybody will have the link and this is gonna give you enough time to go over there to that post because that post is going to stay public now okay let me explain to you how this works once I end this article its gonna take a while for YouTube to encode the article if somebody comes along in the next half an hour lets say theyre going to be able to watch the whole entire article okay so if thats you youre watching the replay hey so before that encoding happens I wont be able to make any edits on the article itself I wont be able to upload a thumbnail or go into that enhancements tool and trim off the end of course I can edit the description and the tags and all that stuff and plus Ill have to go into Photoshop shop and actually make the thumbnail so theres that alright so after you know depending upon how long the actual live stream is that determines you know the length of time it takes YouTube to encode the article and I guess of course theyre not just encoding my article right theyre encoding and uploading all the billions of people for hours or articles that get uploaded every two seconds or whatever on YouTube so when all thats done then I could go in there and upload the thumbnail and trim off now the other thing that I have to keep into consideration is my closed captions so heres another reason why I like to trim the article down because then its so much easier for me to edit the closed captions so if I add in screens to the article before I go in there and trim off all this extra oh wait I left out a step first thing I do when everything is done is I download the article cuz Im gonna keep this whole entire article on my computer thats real important so Im I mean I wasnt prepared to have the step by step I had this written down okay you know I can get my thumbnail ready change my description and that and as the article was encoding as soon as it stops encoding I can download the article that takes a while to okay thats probably another reason my computer might be moving slow like I live articles so but I have terabytes of storage on my computer so Im good to go so anyway so I download the article and then I trim because if I put end cards on the article and then I go in there and trim it those end cards get lost I got to go back in there later and put them back on anyway so I dont even put the end cards on until after Ive determined how to trim it now meanwhile as YouTube is not only transcoding the article theyre also creating those auto captions which is what I use to make my captions I just edit their auto captions and as time has gone by and Ive been you know doing YouTube so long they are really really good at determining what Im saying you know I mean very good theres a lot of times when I rarely have to edit other than my name of course I always have to edit that but it used to be that they didnt even know I was saying eileen they thought I was saying smiling or you know I am smiling but at least now they just spell it with the e so it wouldnt be the worst thing in the world if somebody actually saw it that way but very minimal editing that I have to do on those captions it is so worth it if you arent editing your captions or if youre not creating captions transcripts I call it the same thing if youre not doing that I highly advise you to do that not only because you know people say well does it affect the algorithm in a search and dont worry about that it affects people who cant listen to it because theyre at work or theyre on the bus or theyre just a 1 turn down and theyre doing theyre multitasking maybe and one of the things youre doing is reading your captions but then theres also your death death YouTube viewer and theres a lot of people who watch YouTube who are deaf so you know thats really important that you do that okay so and I have I think it also helps with people who use voiceover you know folks who are visually impaired so I highly recommend that you do that and even on those articles that I leave that are really long two three hours even on those articles I will go in and at least edit the first 10 minutes even if I dont do the whole entire article I will edit the captions of the beginning of the article so that at least they can get idea who I am what the topic is of that particular article so you can do that you dont have to just say oh that articles too long forget it Im not doing any of it at least do the first five 10 minutes because its only gonna take you 10 minutes or less because as you like I said as you keep adding it remember theres machine learning and YouTube has it down to a science better than anybody else and you know cause like I showed you guys earlier that transcription that came from Ankur all know is its pretty horrible you gotta go in and edit almost every worse maybe not every word okay but though you always keep him sure first of all segments or anchors only five minutes but you wont want to transcribe your whole youre only gonna transcribe a segment thats less than a minute okay so if its less than a minute I would say at least 80 of though that youre gonna have to edit its just – thats why I keep mine really short like maybe 20 seconds because its very tedious to go in there but YouTubes transcription and as they get to learn how you speak it gets much easier so so Oh YouTube Church you have to fill in all the words whats required to do it oh I have a whole article to show how to do how to edit the captions Yankees let me get that article up for you my dear and that article is old but guess what it is still the same exactly the same instructions today YouTube has not changed that interface at all okay so hang on I got it typing captions some people say theres actually my friend Owen he says that I got on his case about that he thinks that I threw shade I am when he interviewed me Owen him sad because he has a article that explains the difference between captions and transcriptions because there is a technical difference but when he interviewed me I kind of joked and I said aint really no difference but I was just kidding and then Nick Newman said does she just bust on you that article was worth watching if you never saw that interview that Owen and Nick did with me we had so much fun if Im gonna give you the link to that to Eileen that link slash own and its a YouTube article though he didnt they didnt put that more on YouTube for some reason because speak to him about that as a matter of fact I mean that link oe take you to the Facebook page but the article about how to edit your YouTube article captions its only a three minute article thats that length the first link I post sit there but Yankees and my Israel Worth and yeah yeah like Yankees this definitely something that wed be needed for your channel because Im sure then you have an audience you know of people who want to watch your article and there cant hear maybe there maybe theyre out doing their camping or hiking or whatever order with their family and their family is doing something else you know and so theyre watching it but what youre saying the instructions that youre giving or so would be so easy for them to consume you know with the captions on a lot of times youre showing stuff where your face is not on camp right youre showing youre the outdoor scene and so with the captions oh gosh that would just add such a great enhancement to your articles to make it easy for people to never actually have the audio turned on you know if theyre whatever theyre watching or consuming conditions or habits are so its definitely worth it especially on those short articles just spend a day and go in and do all your short articles just have them all done and then go back later on with those longer articles especially the live streams go back later on and just do them when you can but they do two short ones and get them knock them out and then like I said as you start correcting it YouTube starts to learn your your lingo how you say certain words for some reason it always thinks Im saying one when I say on YouTube listen one one now listen to me machine alright girl are you true royal families in the heels whats up baby girl hi hello alright or my its a lady or a guy or tutorial family thanks for advice as always oh youre welcome Yankees you know the thing like I said dont always just think about the algorithm because once yall we all master the algorithms Oh guarantee you YouTube will change it so think about your viewers your viewer experience if you have someone who stumbles across your channel and they are deaf they could be somebody who has a community of of deaf outdoorsman and they say lets watch this channel because he always has his captions in there you just never never know right but even if you only help them one person isnt that what its all about seriously I mean of course we all want to reach the masses but if you can impact one person and you know make their world a little bit better that should make your day alright it makes my thats why Im still sitting here because I feel like Im making an impact on you guys and you know youre picking up tips and tricks here and there and I love that and you know and I know that you will take action youll be proactive I dont like talking to people that dont take action but I got my action takers in the house boy oh boy okay action takers patrons and YouTube Bell spot notifications glide or Bell squad I heard that Owen coined that phrase of it summit this week my thing was Owen yeah somebody said it I didnt actually hear Owen say it but instead of calling it notification squad they called it the bell squad ring that little bell okay how is your office looking oh its a little messy right now because what had happened was I have these mics and I couldnt find this piece to go to the bottom of this mic if yall be patient oh Im gonna run and get then I started to bring the mic out earlier but somethings you didnt go show that my but now I feel like I need to show the mic so stay right there okay so you remember I introduced you to this CAD you 37 mic and that lovely little stand okay but that one didnt work with my iPhone right so then I remembered that this one which is really my baby and the one that I started with before that Oh 80 are 2100 which is what Im on now my baby the samsung co 3 you whoo and its little Stanford ass so I can actually use this to broadcast on anchor now for one cuz anchor supports external microphones and this can be powered by my iPhone so to get to your question though hows the room coming along I had to tear a whole bunch of stuff apart looking for this little piece that goes onto the bottom of the mic why is the mic and one box and the piece in another box I dont know but I still have a setup that I can do my yoga and I didnt show yall the yoga setup Im sorry Ive thats thats not gonna happen today but so I cant still do my yoga near but that desk that I was shown which was is really a Oh sewing machine that is kind of covered with stuff now cuz I had to pull out one box it wasnt in there then they had to pull out another box and it was in there and and I was like fine I whole bunch of other goodies that I still dont know what they belong to but their attachments for different mics and different stands so right now theres kind of spread out because I wanted to get on here and do this live stream for you so maybe thatll be my project for tomorrow and if I get anything figured out Ill let you guys know what I figure out but yeah so now Im kind of still debating about this other spare room that I have which is a little bigger and thinking that that one might be better for the studio but the problem is that one is not cleared out but its all painted and everything so I would have to go in there pull up carpet well no I have to go in there throw out a bed do a whole lot of other reorganizing and purging and then yeah maybe I have a done by to begin in a year I wish yall livestream Watchers could come over here and help me might get done faster okay so I got a run alright Yankees buy and respect and have an awesome day you too my dear and tisha saying yes and true family is putting up I love those little emojis you have with the my with the musical note where you get that emoji from thats a special one unlike that so I used to use this to record my YouTube articles and the other thing that I found is the OL mic the one that you know when you put the headphone on and then the thing comes around my very first one Radio Shack $20 when I first found out I could I could be a YouTube star I still havent got there yet but anyway back in 2009 my very first article I used that Radio Shack $20 mic and I didnt care that you could hear me ah ah breathing like Darth Vader I did it I started back in 2009 for some wonder by watching those articles but they are there thanks for the awesome day I mean super cute I mean super cute thank you Eileen star hashtag I need star and with that guys I know you all have other things to do and I appreciate you so very much and I will definitely doubt will link see you here next weekend Im not sure if its gonna be
