Breaking Digital Barriers Through Live Streams
With the convenience and being able to purchase products immediately, live streaming for brands used to be popularly done on e-commerce platforms such as Taobao, Shopee, and Lazada. However, social media platforms can often play a better role when building a brand image and online presence, as many other brands fight to be seen and noticed on e-commerce platforms.
Bringing their live streams onto a platform where consumers heavily interact with one another ups the chances of brands standing out. On top of that, working with influencers brings in trustability from the consumers as well, as it allows consumers to be more eager in engaging during the live streams.
