Bad Rabbit: The Latest Variant in the World of Ransomwares

What is Bad Rabbit Ransomware?

Ransomware attacks are on the rise and, the recent one that’s making headlines this week is the Bad Rabbit Ransomware. The malware is said to be linked to the previously released Petya ransomware and inspired by Game of Thrones as the code contains references to the Dragons featured in it.

Bad Rabbit ransomware has affected corporate and media houses in Russia and Ukraine and appears to be affecting Turkey and Germany. Though the full reach and extent of it is yet to be determined, researchers at Kaspersky security firm say that Bad Rabbit ransomware bears resemblance to WannaCry and Petya outbreaks earlier this year.

The head of Russian cybersecurity firm Group – IB, Ilya Sachkov told, “In some companies, work has been completely paralysed as servers and workstations are encrypted.” Some of the affected systems are the airport in Ukraine, the underground railway in capital city, Kiev and several Russian websites like Interfax news agency and

Mode of Propagation

As opposed to the other malwares, Bad Rabbit ransomware requires the victims to download a fake Adobe Flash Installer and manually run the .exe file. When this happens, the malware encrypts the contents of the computer system, thus infecting the system. Once the encryption is complete it asks for a ransom payment of 0.05 bitcoins that’s close to $280 USD. The screen shows the hour as 41 hours and if the victims do not pay within the specified time limit, the ransom amount keeps on going up.

According to Kaspersky researchers, “This is a targeted attack against corporate networks, using methods similar to those used in the ExPetr attack.” According to their investigation, a bit of the code used in Bad Rabbit ransomware was previously spotted in Petya. But unlike Petya ransomware, Bad Rabbit doesn’t use exploits and needs to be manually run. Also, it uses a Trojan like Mimikatz tool to extract data from affected systems.

How to Keep Safe?

One of the foremost things advised is not to download the Adobe Flash Installer from any other website or links on email, apart from the official Adobe website, as the ransomware only infects the system if the fake Adobe Flash player is manually installed.

Researchers have come up with a vaccination to protect your systems from being infected

You can refer the whole procedure here to immunize your computer system.


Always be cautious when clicking links on the internet as well as any unknown or suspicious emails

  1. If you want to download or update your Adobe Flash Player please do it from the official Adobe website and not any other source
  2. Don’t open emails from unknown senders
  3. Think twice before clicking on links sent to you by email or on the internet
  4. If you notice anything out of normal activity on your system, do reach out to your IT help Assistance desk immediately
  5. Update your antivirus and scan your system

How To Make Your Design Portfolio Stand Out

The graphic design industry is growing with each passing day. It generated whopping revenue of $57 billion in the year 2016 and is expected to further grow at a compound annual growth rate of 7% until 2022. Every year more and more young creative minds are inclined towards the booming field of designing to clutch a lucrative share As consequence the competition in designing industry is getting tougher as well. In order to get ahead in this tough competitive world, you need a design portfolio that stands out from the crowd.

Remember, your portfolio is your selling tool to advance in the field of designing. It should not only showcase your best work but also provide exposure to your designing skills and abilities in front of the potential client or employer. From putting the best design forward to creating an engaging portfolio design, there are a number of things you can do that would make your design portfolio stand out. Let’s have a look.

Get Inventive With The Portfolio Design

    • Minimalist: Minimalism is one of the ruling trends in portfolio design. It is simple, subtle, impactful, and carries the right amount of whitespace. You can make your design portfolio simple yet effective by following the minimalist trend. Make sure that you are still able to convey the true essence of your designs while keeping them simple with minimal elements. The portfolio of Cecile Henryon and Anna Rosa Krau are the best example of designers using the minimalist approach.

    • Subtle Scroll: The strong scrolls have faded away and gave way to subtle and creative scrolls that are soothing to the eyes. Incorporating subtle scrolling in the portfolio design can be a great way to catch the attention of the visitor and keep them engaged with the magical effect.  A look at the portfolio of Filip Benda and David McGillivray and you would realize how subtle scrolls can be used to give a new dimension to your portfolio design.

    • Monochrome: Using a single color or value of a single color is seen as gaining the attention of most of the portfolio designers in recent times. The monochrome design can be used to portray any type of work and it would give a classy, elegant and professional feel to the design portfolio. You can make your design portfolio stand out from the portfolios splashed with colors by incorporating this monochromatic technique in it. The portfolio of David Robert and Adam Widmanski are two of the best examples of monochrome design done right.

    • Bold Typography: We all believe that portfolios are all about images. Well, top designers are ditching the all image portfolio designs and embracing a more type-led design. The bold typography engages the users with the content and can also be played with to showcase creativity. The design portfolios of French designer Stephane Issartel and Italian designer & art director Alessandro Scarpellini are can be used to get inspiration for a bold typography led portfolio design.

    • Animation, GIF & Cinemagraph: The days of bland and still design portfolio are numbered and designs with subtle movements and animation are coming to the fore. Make your portfolio designs livelier with subtle effects by using GIFs, animations, and cinemagraphs in them. Don’t make it too flashy or it might divert the attention of the client from your main design. David Spatzek and Arturo Wibawa are excellent examples of portfolio designs using the animated effects to grab the user’s’ attention.

Include Non-Client Work Too

Many designers have a misconception that their design portfolio should only carry the client work they’ve undertaken. This belief needs to be ditched right away as your design portfolio requires your strongest pieces, irrespective of them being a paid client or a non-client work. Give your audience a variety of designs with the work that you’ve done apart from your professional pieces. Self-started and self-initiated projects are mostly appreciated for the illustrator works in the design. Including non-client work can be used to showcase your creative side strongly and even fetch you some freelancing work.

Tell A Story

“You need to tell a story, and order your projects so that they feel fluid and complement each other,” says Malika Favre, a French artist. True indeed! Each design you include in your portfolio needs to tell the story behind its making to make it stand out from the bland and not-so-innovative designs. You can talk about the muse for the design that inspired you, the aim that you had in mind while creating the design, the changes you made until you landed on the finalized design, and the approach you took that helped you create the end design to make an outstanding design portfolio. Moreover, you design portfolio should also speak your story, about your personality, lifestyle, culture, hobbies, and interest to create an instant connection with the audience.

Stick to High-Res Images

While this tip might seem pretty simple and obvious, but including high-resolution images is indispensable in making your design portfolio stand out. Many designers tend to overlook this point while getting bogged down in other details of the designs. The intricacies of your design can only be displayed in your portfolio if you have used high-resolution images. Regardless of the number of designs you showcase in your portfolio, it is the minute details that fetch more clients. Only high-quality images can do justice to your design when it comes to paying attention to the details of your design work.

Decide Smartly On Numbers

It’s not the quantity but the quality that matters in your design portfolio, which calls for a smart decision in terms of the number of designs in your portfolio. Keep the attention span of the user in mind while deciding the numbers of your portfolio designs. The appropriate number of designs in a portfolio is evened out at 10-12. But remember that it is not set in stone; ditch this approach sooner than include any low-quality designs in your portfolio. Include nothing but your best design works in the portfolio, even if they are limited in number.

Keep The First Few And Last Few Strongest

When it comes to the placement of your designs in the portfolio, it is strongly recommended to keep your strongest pieces reserved for the first few and the last few slots. A strategic placement of the designs in the portfolio is what differentiates a good and a great portfolio. You would be able to grab the fancy of the users and keep them engaged throughout the page while browsing through your design portfolio.

You need an outstanding portfolio that reflects your awesomeness as a designer to make a mark in the industry. You need to avoid making any mistake while fashioning your design portfolio and follow the aforementioned steps to create a brilliant portfolio that would help you stand out from the crowd.

P.S. – Once you have your portfolio ready, make sure to update it regularly with your latest designs to make it stand out forever.

The Case For Improving the UX of Your Terms and Conditions Page (and 6 Easy Ways To Do It)

When it comes to designing or improving the UX of a website, how often do you consider your terms and conditions page? My guess: hardly ever. I know what you’re thinking, “why spend time improving a page that 99% of people don’t read when I should be working on my homepage, pricing page, checkout page, etc?”

To be clear, you should definitely pay more attention to the design of these pages, but there is a case to be made for giving some tender love and care to your terms page. This article outlines three reasons why you should, and offers 6 no-hassle ways to enhance your terms of service page.

Wait…What Exactly Is a Terms & Conditions Agreement?

First things first, before we cover the reasons you should improve the UX of your terms page, let’s quickly review what a terms and conditions agreement is. A terms and conditions agreement (also known as a terms of service or terms of use) is essentially a legal contract that outlines the rules that visitors must abide by when using a website or app.

The purpose of this agreement is to protect both owners and visitors, and ensure the website or app offers the intended experience. While there is no overarching law requiring every website to have a terms of service page, without one, a website is legally naked in terms of protecting its ownership rights over its content (designs, articles, etc).

3 Reasons To Improve Your Terms & Conditions Page

If you haven’t paid much attention to your terms page or don’t think there is any value to doing so, here are three arguments that should convince you to fix that page as soon as you’ve finished reading this article:  

  1. Build trust in your brand

When a visitor is able to understand a terms and conditions, they feel reassured that they can explore a site without fear of getting taken advantage of or scammed. It’s a breath of fresh air to be able read through and understand a website’s terms in the first go. It shows that the company actually cares about its users.

On the flip side, if visitors have a hard time just getting through the first paragraph, they begin to question whether the company even thought about their users’ understanding of the terms. Moreover, if they can’t understand the rules that guide the operation of the business, they are more likely to demonstrate caution about using the site.

It’s also important to understand that while a terms and conditions gives you credibility with your users, it also builds trust with Google. Along with a website privacy policy and about us page, a terms and conditions page helps send trust signals to Google. This is important because the more Google trusts your website, the less susceptible you are to negative SEO attacks and penalization by the algorithm.

  1. Avoid consumer backlash

As surprising as it may sound, people DO pay attention to these “boring” legal agreements, and when they see something that is unclear or confusing, they will speak up. For instance, in 2012, Instagram faced an uproar from its users when they noticed that there was an attempt to change the terms and conditions to allow the company to sell uploaded pictures to advertisers.

The company received a barrage of angry tweets and emails with hashtags like #Instascam, Instafraud, and #leavinginstagram. Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom chalked it up to a misunderstanding and apologized for the “confusing” language in the company’s terms, which he promised would be replaced with precise wording.

Although Instagram survived the backlash, a small- to mid-sized business would not fare nearly as well under all the negative pressure.

  1. Protect yourself from a lawsuit

In extreme cases, major inconsistencies in a terms and conditions can result in legal penalties.

For example, in 2015, the popular grocery store chain Safeway was ordered to pay $30 million to all of its Class Members. Customers were angry when they noticed that prices on the online store were higher than the prices in Safeway’s physical locations. The lawsuit stemmed from confusion about whether the word “store” in the their terms and conditions referred to Safeway’s physical or online store.

Safeway is just one example of the wave of cases that are beginning to arise as consumers continue to get savvier and more conscious of internet laws.

6 Ways To Enhance Your Terms & Conditions Agreement

This article wouldn’t be much use if it didn’t offer actionable tips on how to actually improve your terms and conditions page. Below are six easy ways inspired from examples around the web:

  1. Add a table of contents

Including a table of contents may sound simple, but it makes a huge difference when it comes to improving the readability of your terms of service agreement. A table of contents (ToC) makes it much easier for visitors to navigate your terms and find exactly what they are looking for.

Spotify’s Terms and Conditions offers a straightforward table of contents:

When it comes to designing or improving the UX of a website The Case For Improving the UX of Your Terms and Conditions Page (and 6 Easy Ways To Do It)

While there might not be any flair to their table of contents, users don’t have to scroll through page after page to learn about the guidelines on payments and cancellations. It’s puzzling why sites wouldn’t just spend a few minutes on their terms to help their visitors save hours.

  1. Include TL;DRs with each section

The number one reason people have trouble reading through terms and conditions agreements is they are often written with legalese that only an attorney would understand.

Companies are beginning to address this problem by including a “Too Long; Didn’t Read” (TL;DR), or “short”’ version, that cuts through the legal jargon and gives visitors a layman’s version.

TLDRLegal’s terms of service does it best by organizing their page with the legalese version on the right and the layman’s version on the left. Which one would you rather read?

When it comes to designing or improving the UX of a website The Case For Improving the UX of Your Terms and Conditions Page (and 6 Easy Ways To Do It)

Github’s terms of service does something similar by including a ‘short version’ at the start of every section that gives a brief overview of what is covered and allows users to skim through the page faster.

  1. Use question mark popups

Another way to help people maneuver through the complicated legal jargon is to include FAQ-style popups like you see below:

When it comes to designing or improving the UX of a website The Case For Improving the UX of Your Terms and Conditions Page (and 6 Easy Ways To Do It)

With these popups, people can hover over the terms or phrases they don’t quite understand and get a quick explainer which clarifies the definition.

  1. Sprinkle in icons & images

A plain wall of text page after page puts a strain on the eyes and can get boring real fast. Icons and images can be used not only to make your terms and conditions agreement more visually appealing, but to also help navigate the document.

Mailchimp uses icons to make it easier to discern the six different legal policies on their site:

Since Imperial College London is an educational institution, its terms and conditions are far more robust than that of the average website. Instead of having one long webpage, Imperial College breaks their terms into separate category pages using a menu of easily identifiable images:

While most websites’ terms and conditions appear daunting and incredibly boring, the images on Imperial’s page make the terms feel more friendly and welcoming. Prospective students can find the specific policies they need without hassle and can get back to focusing on school.

  1. Don’t overlook fonts & spacing

The very least you can do to improve the readability of your terms is use a clear font style and size. The screenshot below of Kinja’s Terms of Use and Huffington Post’s terms and conditions demonstrate just how big a difference the font can make.

Which one is easier to read?

When it comes to designing or improving the UX of a website The Case For Improving the UX of Your Terms and Conditions Page (and 6 Easy Ways To Do It)

Kinja’s terms agreement is the obvious winner. They use a large font and enough space between lines to avoid making paragraphs look like an overcrowded block of text. On the other hand, Huffingpost’s font is way too small, and they don’t use a space between paragraphs, which makes their terms a nightmare to read (I had to use my finger to make sure I didn’t lose my place).

If you’re looking for the ideal font, most recommend sans serifs fonts for online reading.

  1. FAQ format

When most people visit a terms and conditions page, they come with questions. So instead of having them sift through paragraphs in search of an answer, why not have your terms address their questions upfront?

The BBC’s terms of use breaks each section into questions:  

When it comes to designing or improving the UX of a website The Case For Improving the UX of Your Terms and Conditions Page (and 6 Easy Ways To Do It)

So instead of simply labeling a subsection “Content Ownership,” the BBC rephrases it as a question, “Who owns the content I post or upload?”, which is a common question users have. Formatting your terms this way makes the page more user friendly.

Final Words

No one in their right mind would recommend that you spend more time on your terms of use page than on your pillar pages. However, designers and webmasters should set aside some time to give their terms and conditions pages the attention that it needs. Most of the changes listed above can be done in less than a day, but can make a world of difference when it comes to how visitors perceiver your website.

How Does G Suite Work: Cloud Computing Latest G Suite updates from Google

To answer the ‘How does G Suite work’ question, let’s first understand what G Suite or Google Apps for Business is. G Suite is a package of cloud-based services for companies, organisations etc. These are apps that we’re probably all familiar with. It allows for:

  • Collaboration
  • Communication
  • Storage

Gmail for Business: Professional vs. Free Email

The biggest advantage for a company or a business using G Suite is the use of the company domain name  for a professional email address as opposed to the free version. With Gmail for Business, you can have (professional version) instead of (free version) for your entire team.

A professional email address:

  • Gives your company visibility
  • Makes communication professional
  • Adds credibility to your communication

The G Suite package allows all team members on the domain to access the apps in the suite.

Before I address the ‘How does G Suite’ question, let’s lay the groundwork with Cloud. ‘Cloud’ has been the buzzword in the industry for a while now and for good reason. IaaS, SaaS, PaaS have changed businesses, the way we function, communicate and more. Just to familiarize ourselves with what the Cloud is and what the terms IaaS, SaaS & PaaS mean, here’s a quick refresher course:

What’s the Cloud?

The Cloud is really a physical infrastructure with several servers that operate over the Internet to provision services or software with minimal effort.

IaaS: Infrastructure as a Service includes automated & scalable resources available on demand. Resources are provided through APIs. Cloud hosting & Cloud servers are examples of IaaS.

PaaS: Platform as a Service is the model of cloud computing that provides the platform on which softwares are developed & deployed. This includes operating systems, hardware, network infrastructure etc. An example of PaaS is Microsoft Azure.

SaaS: Software as a Service is the most popular of the cloud computing models. It’s services are provided over the Internet. Gsuite (also known as Google Apps) is an example of SaaS.

The Modern Marketer’s Guide to Live-streaming

Up until recently, the phrase ‘corporate social media’ referred to a brand’s polished profile and carefully crafted posts. The goal of corporate social media was to establish authority, boost brand recognition, and ultimately, to sell a product. While the goal hasn’t changed, the methodology has.

As technology continues to advance, social media has become much more dynamic. The most recent trend? Live video. Contrary to the tone of more traditional corporate social media, live video is unpredictable, raw, and personal—a real game changer.  

Predictably, marketers are a bit skeptical. But, research shows, brand audiences are ready for this shift. In fact, 80% would rather watch live video from a brand than read a blog and 82% prefer live video from a brand to standard text or image posts (source).

Ready to learn how to make livestreaming work for your brand? Keep reading.

What is Livestreaming? 

Let’s start at the beginning. For those who aren’t familiar, livestreaming is the transmission of live, real-time video, broadcast over social media or a specialized streaming platform. It’s important to note, livestreaming is not the same as on-demand video streaming—where content is typically pre-recorded and often edited.

With the release of Facebook Live, YouTube, Snapchat, and Instagram live stories, most people are familiar with livestreaming in a personal capacity. Whether it’s a friend sharing their night out or a celebrity answering fan questions, the intimate nature of live video is innately appealing.

Live-streaming for Business

If leveraged correctly, live video can generate the same personal, behind-the-scenes appeal for your company—and as a result, significantly improve your marketing and social media efforts. Let’s get into specifics:

  • Boost authenticity. Face-to-face interaction with customers and prospects goes a long way—but it’s difficult to be everywhere at once. Live video solves this problem and gives businesses an easy way to interact with their audience in real time for little to no cost. Plus, the unedited nature of live video makes the content feel more exclusive and personal—essentially humanizing your business.
  • Expand your reach.  Video attracts attention and generates engagement—particularly live video. Consider the following statistics:

– Video on social media generates 1200% more shares than text and images combined (source).

– Live content on Facebook receives 10 times more comments than regular videos (source).

– Facebook Live videos are watched three times longer than videos that aren’t live (source).

When you dedicate your time toward live video, you will engage not just your audience, but also their personal networks as they, share, like, and comment on your livestream.

  • Save your budget: Live video is as inexpensive as it is effective—making it a natural choice for marketers. Unlike other marketing mediums, live video only requires a stable internet connection, manpower, and a good camera.

  • Bulk up your content catalog: After your livestream is all said and done, use the content to build up your content marketing catalog. Whether you stream an event, a Q&A, or an interview, the raw footage can be saved and edited for later use. This video content is extremely valuable for website use, promotional materials, customer testimonials, and much much more. Live video is the gift that keeps on giving, for weeks, months and even years to come.

Live-streaming Best Practices

Because there are certain risks associated with live-streaming (see more about this below), it’s important to go into your live event fully prepared. We’ve included some tips and best practices to help you get started.

1. Platform Selection. Now that live-streaming has really caught on, most social media platforms have some sort of streaming capabilities—not to mention independent platforms like Twitch and Periscope that focus solely on live video. It can be hard to decide which platform to use. Here are just some of today’s most popular livestreaming tools:

  • Facebook Live
  • Instagram Live
  • YouTube Live
  • Twitter Live Video
  • Periscope

Before live-streaming for the first time ask yourself the following questions to determine which platform might be best for your organization:

  • What is the intention of my live video?
  • Do I want to attract new prospects or direct my stream towards my existing customer base?
  • Where does my audience interact with my brand the most?
  • What is the most reliable platform?
  • Do I want visitors to be able to see this video after the livestream ends? Or do I want this video to disappear?

Once you have a good idea of what your stream will entail, you’ll be able to pick the platform that will best suit your needs. Also keep in mind, some streaming apps allow you to share your live stream across multiple social networks, so if you’re struggling to pick just one platform, an independent app might be the best choice.

Try one, or try them all and compare results. But, don’t skimp on platform research—selecting the wrong one could be the difference between a successful stream and a massive failure.

2. Preparation. The key to livestream preparation is to plan but not produce. You want to know the basic structure of your program but you don’t want your stream to come across as scripted or stiff. After all, the attraction of live video comes from its authenticity. Extreme production and rehearsal will take away from this.

3. Video Quality.  While it’s important to prepare your content, it’s even more important to prepare your technology and resources. In fact, video quality is the most important factor for 67% of viewers when watching a livestream broadcast (source). Make sure you have a strong internet connection and that the rest of your livestreaming tools are working properly.

4. Promotion. Treat your livestream like you would treat a live event. You wouldn’t expect people to just show up to a tradeshow or industry event without any promotion would you? The same goes for a live video event.

In the days and weeks leading up to your livestream, be sure to promote the event through your typical marketing channels—email, social, digital ads, etc. Be sure to include the platform, the URL, the time, and date of your livestream.

It can also help to offer a discount code, giveaway, or free trial as an incentive for your audience to tune in and participate.

5. Strategy. As with any other marketing tactic, how you use live video will depend on many different factors. What works for one company may not necessarily work for another company. Our advice is to start small and build on your strategy from there. If you’re looking for ideas, keep reading. We cover five of the best livestream ideas toward the end of this article.

Live-streaming Risks

Because live video happens in real time, there are inherent risks that come with live streaming. Below we give you the three most common risks of live video and provide you with the tools you need to mitigate them.

1. Anything can happen. The same reasons that make live video entertaining, also make it extremely scary for companies. One wrong word, awkward pause, or misstep can make a company go viral for all the wrong reasons. The only way to mitigate this risk is to prepare, prepare, prepare.

Here are few extra steps you can take to ensure your live stream goes according to plan:

  • Come up with a livestream manual that outlines company expectations, rules, brand guidelines, and consequences. That way, anyone involved in the production of your live event is fully prepared to behave professionally.
  • Vet all on-air personality. If you have concerns, consider offering media training so that any on-screen personnel will be comfortable answering questions and speaking to a large audience.
  • Review the content with a manager or director. This will help you avoid revealing sensitive or private information.
  • Get consent to film. If you’re in a public setting be sure to understand the laws and legislation surrounding media.
  • Never put anyone on the spot. If you’re doing a live Q&A or interactive segment, be sure to pick those involved ahead of time. Unplanned segments can get derailed quickly by an inappropriate participant.
  • Dedicate one person to starting and ending the livestream. The last thing you want is to inadvertently livestream content that wasn’t meant for public consumption.

2.Technical issues. Sometimes, technological glitches are unavoidable. Plan for them ahead of time to make sure your stream goes smoothly. This means, meet with your IT department to make sure there is no maintenance done during the time of your livestream. Have a backup camera and a backup battery on hand.

Provide a twitter account or support channel at the start of the stream. Should your video go down, communicate with your audience using these channels. Let them know when the stream will be back or if it’s been rescheduled.

3. It won’t be perfect. As much as you prepare, there is always a chance that your live video won’t go according to plan. This is something you should make peace with ahead of time. Try to be flexible but always have a contingency plan. The more you livestream, the easier it will be to spot issues ahead of time.

8 Ideas to Kickstart Your Streaming Strategy

Not sure where to start? Here are the livestream ideas we promised you:

  1. Customer Q&A: Work with one, or several, of your best customers to facilitate a live Q&A session. Prepare a list of questions or take question submissions from your followers. Select your questions ahead of time and prep your customer guest so you have a good idea of what their answers will be.
  2. Expert Q&A: Similar to the first idea, identify an influencer or industry expert to answer your best questions live. For more in depth influencer marketing best practices, check out the article 8 Best Practices of B2B Influencer Marketing
  3. Employee/CEO Q&A: Along the same lines, consider sitting down with an employee or CEO of your company to tell your brand’s story. This is an excellent opportunity to put a face to your company and allow your audience to have unprecedented access to company leadership.
  4. Product Launch: Use live video to launch a new product. This will not only generate buzz around the product but also around your livestream. It will help your audience feel included and make the launch more exciting than an email announcement, for example.
  5. Product Demo: Do a live demonstration of a new or popular product. This will help customers who already have access to the products but also generate new interest in older or existing products. Show, rather than tell, your prospects why they need your product.
  6. How to: Use your livestream for educational purposes. Teach your audience how to do something. This will establish your brand as an industry expert and will keep people interested in your social media profiles
  7. Event: Allow your online followers to take part in in-person events, live. This can extend the reach and impact of your event and it will allow your followers to feel included if they can’t attend in person.
  8. Breaking News: Use live video to break important news. Video is often more compelling than a standard press release and it will allow you to reach more eyes without much planning.

Remember, keep things light and fun in your videos—after all, your audience is there to be entertained. While you can mention products and be professional, if your content is too dry, your visitors will stop tuning in.

After your livestream, your job isn’t over. You now have valuable content to repurpose, build off of, and reshare. Start small. Each livestream will be a learning experience; analyze your results, regroup, and modify your technique for your next stream. Happy streaming!
