Steps

 

Step 1. Come up with a name for your ministry or broadcast. 

 

Step 2. What 3 to 5 core subjects are you going to cover? Once you have decided, write a bio (including your own) about what your broadcast will be about. 

 

Step 3. Grab the domains (website(s), social media pages with the name of your broadcast. If you can only afford to buy one domain, BUY YOUR NAME! 

 

NOTE 1: If you cannot buy the domain, please tell Joshua. Make sure you create Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, LinkedIn, Medium, and whatever social media platforms, even if you are not active on those sites.   

 

Step 4. A snowball mic and Logitech web camera are inexpensive and good quality, so you do not need to spend a lot of money when purchasing these items.  If they are out of your budget, please just use your phone. 

 

Step 5. Email all of the above information to joshua@livemanaworldwide.org, including passwords and usernames for logins (you can change these later). This is important so when we go to the next steps, we can work effectively.

 

NOTE 2: Creating a Google Drive account will also benefit you.

Website

Joshua Berglan can guide you each step of the way and deliver your content. Be a “Sooner”, as the Oklahomans came to be known. In the Land Run of 1889, many people entered the Oklahoma District (Unassigned Lands) before the designated time and grabbed their land sooner! If you are serious about launching your ministry through the most powerful media of video, the most valuable thing you can do is to grab the ‘land” at GoDaddy.com or your favorite hosting platform, and on social accounts, even if you are not going to use it yet. It is like buying stock. Buying your name is THE most important domain, and if you are able too, buy your show/ministry name also.  

 

Video Recording

How do you record? There are many avenues, but Joshua prefers Streamyard or Vimeo (for scalability and customization) , because of its compatibility with streaming multiple technologies. It is well worth it to create a media kit that includes video, audio, and transcript! 

 

Although the video quality is better in be.live TV, Streamyard integrates with multiple media platforms better. What is most important is a platform with excellent customer service and one that is constantly upgrading their technology. As technology changes, this statement may change too.  It is best to take advantage of all the FREE trials you can so that you can use the platform you love best. 

 

YouTube 

Top right of screen, click Create to upload video. You can also use YouTube as the actual recording place and broadcast from there. Each platform uses different coding. 

Create, upload video, MP4, Drop It

Owen Video and Matt Schaeffer are experts on YouTube. 

Can right click on your video to download. 

Remember you are doing it for the one individual. Don’t get caught up in viewing numbers. It is not a place of ego. You are doing what you are called to do.

Podetize

Explore podcast software. Don’t get taken in when one claims to be the best or the most popular. It is okay to start with free podcast sites, but you don’t own your own content. Ideally use a paid one and own your content, such as Podetize, but there are many good ones.  Podetize is family owned and they have good customer service. 

 

Your Website

All your media is on one location: your website. 

Don’t be advertising for Facebook or YouTube. Advertise for your own website, and direct traffic there.

Affiliate Relationships/Sponsorships 

 

Write down ten or twenty of your favorite brands, then look them up. Chances are, they have an affiliate program on their website, especially if it is a larger company. For example, hotels, skincare, haircare, Target, minerals, Tide laundry detergent and even private jets! 

 

Have someone else pitch you to other companies for sponsorships, it is more professional and more effective. 

 

IMDB Pro – Internet Movie Database – great hidden gem of where you can add your content.
