How to Succeed as a Behance Streamer Step by Step Guide

As with any platform, it can take time to construct a target market on Behance. Fortunately for you, we have created a cheat sheet of exceptional practices to assist make sure a superb ride for you and your future followers.

  1. Watch and learn from other artists who have live streaming experience. Alicja ColonMaddy Bellwoar, and Aundre Larrow are all great people to start watching.
  2. Keep your first Livestream relatively short, between 30-60 minutes. As you get more comfortable, you can extend your sessions.
  3. Give your live stream a descriptive title, rather than relying on the default provided. Viewers are more likely to click on your Livestream if they have a clear sense of what it will cover.
  4. For content ideas, consider using one of the following prompts: Warm-up sketches, weekly challenge, sketchbook flip-through, streamer Q&A, guest interview, my portfolio, what inspires me, open critique, paint along, my favorite plug-ins, 5 tips I would give my younger self. As with any other social media platform, capitalize on popular and seasonal trends to broaden your reach.
  5. Prepare a list of icebreaker questions. Viewers cannot interrupt your audio, but they can type in the chat. Make use of the chat features to build camaraderie among your audience members.
  6. Do not be afraid to self-promote! Get your friends and family engaged so you will be sure to have an audience for your first Livestream. Post a link to the event on your social media channels. As you invite others, be sure to let them know that it’s not the end of the world if they are late or need to leave early. Of course, they will get the most out of it if they are signed in from beginning to end, but being present for some of the Livestream is better than none.
  7. If you are nervous, consider making your first Livestream private so you can get some practice and see how it looks before doing a public Livestream.
  8. If you are going to turn on your camera, make sure that your work area has plenty of light, that your face is well lit, and that your camera is positioned to capture your face from a good angle.
  9. Start your stream 5 minutes early and put up a “Broadcasting Soon” sign. In Photoshop and Fresco, you can write it on the canvas.
  10. Always end your live streams with at least one call to action. Examples could be following you on Behance or tagging you in their socials when they share a project that they created using a technique you shared.
  11. As you get more experience, consider using a stream support product like an open broadcaster system (OBS) to add fun, interactive elements to your stream.
